[Pedia] Add info to entries in the "Meter Type/" Pedia category #1880
See also the forum thread http://www.freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=10776
There is some missing info that perhaps ought to be added to some of the "Meter_Type/" entries in the Pedia:
Poking around in https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/blob/master/default/stringtables/en.txt it looks like METER_IMPERIAL_PP_USE_LIMIT_VALUE_LABEL may be somewhere, where it should say METER_IMPERIAL_PP_USE_LIMIT_VALUE
Also to be conistent, METER_IMPERIAL_PP_USE_LIMIT_VALUE should probably be changed to METER_IMPERIAL_PP_USE_LIMIT_VALUE_DESC in en.txt
I'm checking to see if it's in any of the other language files.... and it looks like that entry has been translated only into french so far.
So en.txt and fr.txt for the METER_IMPERIAL_PP_USE_LIMIT_VALUE --> METER_IMPERIAL_PP_USE_LIMIT_VALUE_DESC if desired for consistency.
I think this is helpful information, but if not, please disregard.
Further proposed changes:
Any un-allcoated --> Any un-allocated 2017-11-27 20:27 GMT+01:00 alleryn <email@example.com>:…
Further proposed changes: - "Stat - Primary" --> "Ship Part Capacity" : "The Capacity of a Ship Part describes its primary function: Shield Strength for Shields, Fighter Capacity for Hangars, population for Colony Pods, etc." - "Stat - Secondary" --> "Ship Part Secondary" : "Used as a supplement for [[metertype METER_CAPACITY]] (ed. note: would read "Stat - Primary" or "Ship Part Capacity") when additional information about a ship part is required, for example Shot Damage for a Hangar (to supplement Fighter Capacity) or Shots per Attack for a Flak Cannon (to supplement Shot Damage)." - "Size" --> "Field Size" : "Measures the radius of a [[encyclopedia ENC_FIELD_TYPE]] (ed. note: would read "Field Type")." Alternate wording: "Measures the size of a field. A list of [[encyclopedia ENC_FIELD_TYPE]]s is available on the Pedia." - "Industry": "...Any un-allocated Industry is lost each turn. ..." --> "...Any un-allcoated Industry is converted via the [[metertype METER_IMPERIAL_PP_TRANSFER_EFFICIENCY]] (ed. note: would read "Industry to Stockpile PP Transfer Ratio") and added to the Imperial Stockpile. ..." — You are receiving this because you are subscribed to this thread.

Some of this seems like it'll take quite a while to sort out, so i figured i'd try to push through the minor stuff:
That is intended to take care of "Imperial Stockpile Use Limit" and "Industry" (the french article for the latter still says that unused industry points are wasted, rather than converted into stockpile points... i just left a note in fr.txt that it needs an update).
Beyond that, it feels like a bit of a morass to me.
METER_CAPACITY seems to be doing a lot of things at once and require extra syntax in a number of places since sometimes it's referred to textually as "Capacity" and other times as ""Damage", and in the Pedia as "Stat - Primary".
It also is used at least once just as a literal "Capacity", when the player opens the pedia to look at a ship design, for Fuel [[METER_CAPACITY]]. In this case perhaps it would be better replaced by [[LITERAL_CAPACITY]] since it's really not being used as a meter in this context.
[[METER_SIZE]] is also a bit overloaded, referring to both the discrete quantity Fleet Count, and the continuous quantity Field Radius.
I'd recommend moving further discussions at this point to the forum http://www.freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=10776 unless someone has a more concrete understanding than me of these issues.
