http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Plane_navbox is broken in the sense that:

1) It is out of date
2) It uses out of date concepts of plane categories: planes now fit more than one category.
3) It is very reset-sensitive, which places a higher burden on the Skybrarians.

What can we replace this with? I am not even going to try to figure out how to code up a replacement until we have some idea what that replacement should look like.

Can we live with this, or some simple variant of it?

I am open to some tweaks, but managing the tier changes every round...it's out of hand.

I really like having the Tier listed, plus all NPC craft should probably be grouped together.
I'll take me a few days, but let me take a shot at this, Talvin.

The problem I have with Tier is that it is reset-prone. Planes are the *worst* for resets.

I leave this in your hands.

Done.
http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Plane_navbox

I stripped out the NPC craft as they don't (all) fit into the C/P/T schema.
http://skyrates.wikia.com/wiki/Template ... ary_navbox already covers many of these too.
Also, most (but not all) pirate-flown craft have the same specs as player-flown craft. A notable example is the Bullfrog in Candy Caravan.

Works.

Can you throw together one for the NPC craft? I'll go around and put it in the appropriate pages.

Easier requested than done, but I'll add it to my list.
