• The upgrades template, used to display the upgrade costs for cars on their article page has had a makeover, all 133 car page has been updated with the template and now display totals. The existing data is unchanged, all the work to format the car upgrade data is calculated by the template code behind the scenes. When car upgrade costs in R$ or Curr.Gold.New.80x80.Shifted

    are entered into the upgrade template the costs will automatically format, calculate and total.


    There are three parts to the upgrade template, the headings, the data and the total:


    Upgrade Duration RCurr.R.Dollars.New.80x80.Shifted
    1 Engine: Cold Air Intake 30 Minutes 13,500 3
    2 Engine: Competition Engine Tuning 1 Hour 15 Minutes 20,300 5
    3 Engine: Competition Throttle Body 3 Hours 20 Minutes 30,500 8
    4 Engine: Increase Engine Bore 12
    5 Engine: Performance Intake Manifold 12 Hours 68,600 18
    6 Engine: Competition Cam-shaft 28
    7 Engine: Competition Cylinder Heads 1 Day 154,300 42
    8 Engine: High Performance Supercharger Pulley Kit 60

    Technical details


    The heading has no input data, it formats the table headings and configures the columns for sorting.

    Upgrade Data

    The upgrade data takes upto 6 data inputs, separated by a pipe |, for example:

    {{R/upgrades|1|Engine|Cold Air Intake|30 minutes|13,500|3}}

    Upgrade source

    In this example :

    1. 1 = The number of the upgrade, 1 being the first upgrade, this should be in a value format.
    2. Engine = The component being upgraded, either Engine, Drivetrain, Body, Suspension, Exhaust, Brakes or Tires & Wheels
    3. Cold Air Intake = Description of the upgrade (number 3 in the above screengrab)
    4. 30 minutes = The length of time the upgrade will take, use the format day(s), hour(s) minute(s) (empty for Gold only upgrades) (number 4 in the above screengrab)
    5. 13,500 = R$ upgrade cost, this should be in a value format, either 13500 or 13,500, if the comma separator isn't entered, it will automatically be added (empty for Gold only upgrades) (number 5 in the above screengrab)
    6. 3 = Upgrade cost in Curr.Gold.New.80x80.Shifted, this should be in a value format (number 6 in the above screengrab)


    {{T/upgrades|1 day 17 hours 5 minutes}}

    In this example :

    1. 1 day 17 hours 5 minutes = The total upgrade time, if all upgrades are completed consecutively. It is free text, the total needs to be manually calculated and entered if empty the total will be blank.

    Quality Check

    Upgrade descriptions are checked against previously used descriptions. If the description hasn't been used before, it will display in red, this is to catch typos and spelling mistakes. Double check any red descriptions, if they are correct, add them to this template:

    Add descriptions to the second to last line, in the format | lower case description = Proper Case Description e.g.:
    | race prototype intake manifold = Race Prototype Engine Tuning


    This the second template to be created as part of the project to automatically add totals to data. This follows on from the Manufacturers page.
