Infobox help

Hi Icke. Where may I find documentation to set up Infoboxes for use in a new wiki I made? I'm new to the backend coding, and as such would really appreciate all the help I can get in setting up the groundwork for a new wiki. Thanks! Thecatchyname

For documentation on the individual infoboxes, refer to the template pages; see Template:Npc infobox. This information is transcluded from Template:Npc infobox/doc, so if it isn't on an infobox's page it may still be on the /doc subpage. This documentation is intended to tell a user how to use the infobox, though, not how to replicate one for another purpose, and as far as I know there's no built-in instruction manual for making them. I find it more worthwhile to hit Edit/View Source and look at the logic behind them with the assistance of a mediawiki function reference. There's probably more effective resources than this, but that's how I learned to code, both in the context of mediawiki and otherwise- look at functioning code to determine syntax and formatting, keep a reference handy to know functions, and just do it a lot until it becomes second nature.

Fix the File of Star Cell

You put the file of star cell in the Flow Invader!! LuisYKW2

Fixed now. Equazcion (talk) 14:10, 1 Jul 2015 (UTC)

How do you find the percentage of drops on weapons and such?

I saw your edit on the treasure bag and was just wondering how you found out that an item had a 60% drop rate and thing likes that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Greengreengene (talk • contribs)

I get the drop rates directly from the source code. --0icke0 (talk) 21:03, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Drop Rate Question

Quick question. I've been going through the drop rates for the past few hours and the Eye of Cthulhu drops are kind of confusing me. I'm hoping that you'll have the answer because, frankly, you usually do.

  • In Expert mode, here appears to be a higher drop rate for the Binoculars, the Shield of Cthulhu is being dropped outside of a Treasure Bag, and there is an increased number of seeds dropped. However, these will never even have any effect because in Expert mode, the Eye will just drop the Treasure Bag and be done. Am I missing something here? Do bosses only drop Treasure Bags the first time you kill them or something? I haven't really had a chance to play very much 1.3 yet to figure this out on my own. Chrisf1020 (talk) 13:24, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

    Noticed this as well. Didn't pay much attention to it, as I expected it to be fixed in the new minor release anyway and by now it has been reported. As we no longer post a bug note on the wiki and I didn't want to ruin the loot table (which tends to look ugly when you add seperate drop chances for expert mode) I just left it at that. --0icke0 (talk) 14:28, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
    I'm not sure if this is the same as that bug. Upon further investigation, it became apparent that every boss had Expert mode drop chances and the special "Rainbow" drop like this beyond the first "if" statement. Perhaps I'm still not understanding how this is supposed to work? I'll go ask about it on the forums and see if anyone can shine some light on it. Chrisf1020 (talk) 18:10, 6 July 2015 (UTC)


    I was wondering about this edit. You seem to have reverted the page to a much earlier state. Was that intentional? The number of Wing types available is back to the pre-1.3 number, as is the height comparison image. I made a bunch of other tweaks to make the code simpler to edit, like {{ing}} for listed ingredients, the simpler bullet points vs. line breaks for notes, and some other formatting to prevent line breaks on smaller screens. Let me know if you intended this or if it's alright switch back. Thanks. Equazcion (talk) 07:04, 7 Jul 2015 (UTC)

    No, this was certainly not intentional. I was looking through the history to see in what revision it was added that Mothron Wings were obtainable (as they are not) and apparently ended up editing an outdated revision without noticing. I've switched it back now. --0icke0 (talk) 09:16, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
    For future reference you can undo your own revisions in the page history. -- DataNalle (talk) 10:22, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
    Thanks Icke :) Equazcion (talk) 15:33, 7 Jul 2015 (UTC)

    Data dump

    Could we move (or copy) your data dump to a mainspace page? I think it would be a useful reference for both editors and readers, as I doubt all that info will actually make it into infoboxes in its entirety any time soon. I'm not sure what to title the page however. Equazcion (talk) 17:57, 24 Jul 2015 (UTC)

    Sure, I don't mind. It was mainly aimed at editors as I don't think many other people are going to find it no matter where you place it, but if you have a good idea go ahead. --0icke0 (talk) 19:11, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
    We could perhaps plug it into enemy list. The ID schemes seem to have some differences though. Equazcion (talk) 22:57, 24 Jul 2015 (UTC)

    Thrown weapons

    Grenades and holy water and the like were moved from Thrown Weapons page because there are now armor sets that specifically affect "thrown"-type weapons, the same reason the Bone Glove was added despite not operating like the others. They were already listed on Consumable weapons, so they weren't removed entirely, but this change in page layout is consistent with other weapon pages, particularly recent changes to Summon weapons. Having moved them back means both that there are redundancies with the Consumables page, and that the associated items section on Thrown is now incorrect, so it needs to be fixed in some way, but I'm not sure if you had another plan in mind. Did you think we should keep the old grouping instead, or should we go ahead and remove grenade-likes from the Thrown Weapons page?Gearzein (talk) 16:04, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

    I might actually be wrong about that though, whoops. Gearzein (talk) 16:15, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
    Grenades, Holy Water, etc, are considered thrown weapons by the game and thus benefit from the bonuses from those armors. (Other explosives, such as Bombs and Dynamites do not.) If you ask me I think it would be best to remove Consumable weapons entirely as it is a duplicate of thrown weapons. (In addition to removing Grenades and Hellfire Arrow from the explosives page and modify the intro to reflect that only non-magic/ranged/thrown/ammo weapons are considered explosives.) --0icke0 (talk) 16:28, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
    Yeah, about as soon as I made that comment I went to go test it, and they do benefit from the set bonus. There were a lot of reports that they didn't early on, and I could have sworn I tested it then too, but in either case the Consumable Weapons page is entirely redundant now. I'll start getting rid of it. I agree with the changes to Explosives as well, as I never felt Explosive Bullets or Hellfire Arrows were appropriate there anyway. Thanks! Gearzein (talk) 16:52, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
    If you remove them they're just going to get re-added (despite intro technical notes that people might or might not read and/or understand). I would move them to a separate listing underneath, something with a subnote that although these cause explosions they are not considered part of the explosives class by the game.

    Item IDs images

    Does your bot can still import images from the English wiki to the French ? Because if yes, I would like that you import images from Item IDs part10 (fr link). -- Dinoxel discussion 11:03, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

    Maybe best way is use Common files? English Wiki is a Common Storage of all files, that can work in rest of language section like Wikimedia Commons. For Russian Wiki me and my colleague created File Module with all needful game images that used in ItemLink, LinkedIcon templates. This simplifies the work and makes it possible not to upload files to Russian wiki (I am going remove all this files). ← Alex Great talk 11:33, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
    It will take me a lot of time to copy every 3601 items and every ~430 mobs names while 2700 items and mobs images are already imported. Edit: I'll maybe to it to have a big database of all names instead of in "Item IDs" and "ennemy".
    By the way, I supposed that you make your own translation of every names like me because there is no Russian/French translation. -- Dinoxel discussion 12:02, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
    You don't take all 3601 items and 430 mobs. Take it automatically (Notepad++). You think that I do it in long time? No. But if you want not to do like me, you can forget it. ← Alex Great talk 13:27, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
    I don't understand you first phrase. And you have to know that I'm not a programmer, I know just basics things. I could maybe save a lot of time by doing things with programming but I don't know what is possible and what's not. =/ -- Dinoxel discussion 14:21, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
    I can help you with module. ← Alex Great talk 16:02, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
    Alex, can't you import images to an other wiki with your bot ? I have done Item IDs part11 too if you still can import images. -- Dinoxel discussion 01:24, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
    I do not need to import images. The module allows to refer and take images from the English wiki. All Russian Wiki images are not included in the module will be deleted. ← Alex Great talk 05:04, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
    Yeah yeah I understand, but I prefer to import images. I mean can you do it on the French wiki ? -- Dinoxel discussion 10:07, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
    @Dinoxel, I semi-manually upload all Item IDs images. Some images maybe have few tiles, reupload it if it needed. Images 3301 → 3600 have English name. I don't speak in French, if you want, you can rename images. If I uploads duplicate, you can deleted. I use MS Upload Manager for it and do noy know how many mistakes done by me. ← Alex Great talk 13:15, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
    Thank you a lot ! But that's why I said that Item IDs part10 and 11 (2700 → 3300) were translated and not part 12 (3301 → 3600). I really appreciate the gesture. I will removed/rename images from part12, don't worries ;) -- Dinoxel discussion 16:50, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Apparently I did not understand a bit. When I uploaded I did not use parts pages. I uploaded all files directly, which has been displayed as non-existed on the page of data IDs. ← Alex Great talk 06:48, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

    Hi Icke, could you import 1.3.1 images on the French part 13 when you'll have a little time. ;) -- Dinoxel discussion 22:26, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
    Done. --0icke0 (talk) 10:56, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
    Thanks ! -- Dinoxel discussion 11:47, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

    Hi again, I saw that you import every new sprite of every items. Then, if it doesn't bother you, I would like that you download them all. Which page do you need ? Is Item IDs enough ? -- Dinoxel discussion 23:55, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

    Good job on the walls!

    I noticed the bunch of wall-images you uploaded! I thought it was pretty neat; keeping lists updated is not easy. Stuff like this really goes to show what impact 1.3 had on the game. Thank you for your contribution! I also hope you're doing better after becoming overworked - I feel some guilt after all the tasks I gave you, so I hope you won't have to experience that again. I suppose even admins have a limit! NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 15:29, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

    Don't worry about it. This wiki wasn't my biggest time drain back then. --0icke0 (talk) 12:34, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

    Everything says it is crafted at a Demon/Crimson altar?

    I've noticed that a majority of, if not all, pages that give a display where it is crafted at says it's crafted at a Demon Altar or Crimson Altar. I have never seen anything like that before, and I only got to find out about it this morning. Do you think you know what caused this to happen? TerraAssassin (talk) 15:26, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

    I recently made a change to the crafting template and made a mistake that caused recipes for various crafting stations to display the Demon/Crimson Altar as crafting station. I've fixed it now (may take a few minutes for all pages to update). Thanks for notifying me. --0icke0 (talk) 15:33, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
    Thank you for fixing it, and no problem! --TerraAssassin (talk)

    Planterra's Bulb

    I saw you had undone an edit I made to plantera. I shall have to note that I personally witnessed this requirement exists. This was tracked on a livestream; Plantera's bulbs refused to spawn only untill after the Queen Bee was defeated (with the mechanical bosses already dead). — Preceding unsigned comment added by

    He was properly unlucky and couldn't find any until he defeated queen bee. I have source code access (for the pc version at least) and can assure you there is no such requirement. --0icke0 (talk) 22:01, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

    Some questions! ^^

    Hi! I come from the Terraria's Wiki in Spanish. I'm doing some interviews for "Terraria: Otherworld", and I want to do some questions to you, the best user of the best Terraria Wiki!

    I give to you de questions if you want to do these ^^

    (If you wanna see the wiki, here is the link:

    Q: Do you think this 2016 will be the year of Terraria? Q: Will Terraria Otherworld better than "Terraria"? Or just different? Q: A bet, when will Terraria Otherworld come? Q: Is Terraria the best indie game? If not, can you say another game? Q: Do you think Terraria's community is fine or just the english community? Q: Can you say to me if the english wiki will do another wiki for "Terraria Otherworld"? Q: Are you hyped with Terraria Otherworld? Q: Thanks for do this interview! ^^

    After to do this interview, you can delete this post if you want.

    To much thanks, really happy for do this interview to you. Cya! Futhead Relampago (talk) 18:54, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

    I released yet the interview if you want to see it! , Thanks! ^^ --Futhead Relampago (talk) 20:55, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

    French Console/Mobile versions

    Hi Icke, do you know where I can get the French name of Console/Mobile exclusives items ? -- Dinoxel discussion 13:26, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

    You can open the Terraria apk file (Terraria for android) with winrar or similar programs to view the contents and translation files. I've also uploaded the translation files (English and French) of v1.2.11585 (Android) here. --0icke0 (talk) 21:03, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
    Thank you for the files, I'll use them soon ! But, in the future, if I want to open the apk file for android does I have to own the android (or iOS) version of Terraria ? -- Dinoxel discussion 18:19, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
    You don't need to own the iOS version of Terraria, you can view the APK file on your computer. It is a text file.Ferretwings (talk) 13:26, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
    All the content of every gaming platform is write in the Desktop APK file ? -- Dinoxel discussion 13:35, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
    No, it's the iOS version. I download and unpack the iOS version from here. I love the site, because it includes the history for all the old versions as well. It's a text file, and you can open it in any text editor. I've been searching for the console file as well, but I've had no luck. Ferretwings (talk) 13:57, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
    Thanks for the website, it will help me for the future updates ! -- Dinoxel discussion 23:55, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
    Also, I used "7-Zip File Manager" to unpack the file... it seems to work best for APK files. Ferretwings (talk) 06:09, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
    I already use WinRAR and it works as well, but it's kind of you. :) -- Dinoxel discussion 08:52, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

    Use of work on "The Vanishing of Ethan Carter wiki"

    Hey there, as the new guardian of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter wiki, there are lots and lots of things for me to do. If possible, I would like to use the template format and other files such as the pc icon etc. on the wiki. Would that be possible?TOTORO01 (talk) 02:45, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

    Hey. All work on Gamepedia wikis is released under a BY-NC-SA 3.0 license, which means you are free to reuse it as long as you give credit. (e.g. by linking to the page where you copied the template from.) Images have similar licences which can be found on the image pages.

    Deletion of Unsigned IP

    I see where you were coming from, however is there a way I can used Unsigned for IPs? (Since IPs have red links normally using unsigned template) Thank you for looking into this! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 22:52, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

    The unsigned template can be used for IPs. There is nothing wrong with red links being created if they don't have a user page yet. --0icke0 (talk) 12:00, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

    Hello from the Tremor Wiki! Question about broken links

    Hiya 0icke0, I frequent a small wiki for a Terraria Mod called Tremor and help fill in some information if it's missing. A few of the pages I was working on, I noticed that certain items don't link back to the Terraria wiki properly... I was hoping you could shed some light on what exactly is going wrong!

    There's the link to one of the pages with a broken link, specifically the Boomstick.pngBoomstick link isn't working, while the Dark Shard.pngDark Shard is working. Looking forward to hearing back from you, thanks!

    Bladesinger24 (talk) 10:46, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

    I took care of it. If you see another broken link like this, you can fix it by creating a redirect. Click on the redlink, create the redirect #REDIRECT [[tgc:item]]. – Ferretwings (talk) 12:17, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
    Thank you so much, broken links are one of my pet peeves, and I'm pretty new to writing wiki pages. Thanks again!Bladesinger24 (talk) 22:38, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
