This page specifies the basic layouts for common contents and pages.

We understand that it's not always easy to obtain all useful information, therefore you may create a page with only the most necessary information obtained. However, blank pages are not encouraged for this Wiki and would be marked for deletion.

General Edit

  • Try to use maps or screenshots without game-mods, unless, of course, you are writing something about a modded content.
  • Keep real-life information out unless it's important to gameplay or can be compared to in-game feature. Always use a Wikipedia link to direct readers for real-life information.
    • Wikipedia links start with the string ":wikipedia".
    • If you use source mode in classical editor, the format is [[</code>''':wikipedia:'''<page name><code>|Link text]]

Cities, Seaports, Countries and States Edit

  • Create subpages for places included in multiple games, one for each game (except for the games in the 18 Wheels of Steel series, which should have a shared subpage). Link up the pages with the {{Page}} template.
  • Use the {{Infobox location}} template to fill-in basic information:
    • Specify the type of the location (i.e. whether it's a City (labeled on the map), Suburb (with companies, labeled on the map as part of a city), Town (without companies, not labeled on the map), Village (without services), Seaport, State or Country)
    • Specify the games the location is featured in.
    • Connections / neighbouring cities or countries
    • Speed limits for trucks (countries)
  • Prepare at least one image, preferably an "entrance", a "view" or a "map" image.
    • City or seaport entrances are where the name sign is, and/or where the "urban" speed limit is enforced. It's better if you can capture the city's landmarks at the entrance (take Uppsala as an example), but not necessary.
    • For countries or states, an "entrance" means a view at their border crossings. The best example as of the time of writing is Switzerland.
    • Optionally, if the country has a Paint Job Pack, you may add a photo of a truck using one of those Paint Jobs.
    • For maps, take screenshots using the World map. For large locations (e.g. big countries), you may need to combine images using imaging softwares, though Windows Paintbrush is usually enough.
  • For cities, a simple list of companies / depots and facilities is enough.
  • If possible, search for landmarks in the cities/countries, and list them. Optionally, add pictures of them in the gallery section of the page.
  • Add a table (if it's a country or state) or list of all the connections within or connecting (if it's a city) the location.
  • Try to keep only in-game information:
    • Add only "Twinned Cities" that are featured in one of SCS Software's games!

Roads Edit

  • Use the {{Infobox Road}} template to fill-in basic information:
    • Add the symbol of the road to "icon". Use the one in Category:Road icons, if contained. If not, use the one on the road's real-life Wikipedia webpage.
    • Add an image of the road (for example, at the border or at a landmark), and a map. Take more screenshots and add them as a gallery.
    • Name the type of the road, using the definitons Motorway (two/three lanes in each direction with hard shoulder), Highway (two/three in each direction lanes without hard shoulder), Road (one lane in at least one direction) and City Road (roads in a city without considering lanes).
    • Add the length of the road and the speed limit. Add both metric and English values, however, put English values in brackets.
    • Add each junction and exit on the motorway in a table, marking their distance from the beginning point.

Companies Edit

  • Use the {{Infobox Company}} template to fill-in basic information.
    • Include logo, photo, featuring games, industries and number of depots in the game.
  • Many Euro Truck Simulator companies appear in both ETS 1 and ETS 2. Collect logos from both games if possible.
  • Image(s) for depot(s), trailer(s) are appreciated.
  • Add locations of depots and cargos accepted.

Facilities Edit

  • List the game(s) featuring the facilities.
  • For each game, write at least a brief description on the facility.
  • Make comparisons between different games if necessary.

Landmarks Edit

  • Make sure it's just a standalone building structure. Towns or villages should follow the guideline for cities above.
  • Use the {{Infobox location}} template to fill-in basic information.
    • Specify the type of the location as "Landmark".
    • Specify the "Game"
    • Specify the "Nearest accessible city".
    • For "Connections", fill in the nearest road, pier, etc; or "N/A" if it's visible from a settlement (a.k.a. "Nearest accessible city")

Trucks and Truck Brands Edit

  • Use the {{Infobox Truck}} template to fill-in basic information.
    • Include photo, featuring games, body styles, transmissions, and engines.
  • Add tables for the possible upgrades for the truck. Make sure to have a price and a picture if it's an exterior upgrade.
