Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

This template is used for event choices which appear in blue text in the game. These choices are only available if you meet certain conditions, such as having purchased a particular ship upgrade or having a crew member of a particular race.

This template takes two main parameters: the prerequisite for the choice (which appears in parentheses in the event dialog) and the text of the choice. For example:

# {{Blue Option|Sensors|Run a second scan pass.}}

produces:

  1. (Sensors) Run a second scan pass.

The category for all options with the given prerequisite will automatically be added to the event page (but not to any intermediate templates).


The level optional parameter can be added to specify a system level, if applicable. For example:

# {{Blue Option|Sensors|Run a second scan pass.|level=2}}

produces:

  1. (Sensors) Run a second scan pass. (Requires level 2 Sensors)

The shortreq optional parameter should be added when a prerequisite is unclear or doesn't match a page name (e.g. Improved Clonebay, Adv. Medbay, etc.). It overrides the prerequisite for auto-categorization and to link to the proper page with the level parameter. For example:

# {{Blue Option|Advanced Sensors|Run a second scan pass.|level=3|shortreq=Sensors}}

produces:

  1. (Advanced Sensors) Run a second scan pass. (Requires level 3 Sensors)

and add the page to the "Sensors Option" category.
