The Walkthrough Chart Project: Fallout 3 is a project which aims to standardize and organize all Fallout 3 quest "quick walkthrough" sections using the chart template modiified by The Gunny. The current system usually seen for quick walkthroughs is a numbered bullet system, that doesn't easily make room for the different branching paths you may choose to complete a quest in. The chart template provides for an easy to follow and read system of explaining the way a quest is done, that is both professional looking and just more aesthetically pleasing. Full information on, and instructions on how to use the chart template can be found here. An example of the chart in use on a quest page can be found here.

Scope

All marked quest articles.

Guidelines

A contributor is to simply go to a Fallout 3 marked quest page, and replace the numbered quick walkthrough section with a chart that clearly explains the different steps in that quest. The chart must adequately describe the quest's steps and different paths. The only required step involved in making a chart not described on the template page is the background color styling. When making a text box, simply add the appropriate .css class to the end code of each line (see examples).

Template usage for walkthroughs

Here are 5 usage examples for easy chart building. First determine how many branches a quest has and select the correct example to build off of. The majority of the box code and connecting line code is present, all you need to do is copy/paste and rearrange the lines of code to the proper format for the quest.

Single track quests

{{chart/start|class=mw-collapsible mw-collapsed}}
{{chart|quest|quest=Main/Side/Unmarked Quest: Quest name|class=va-chart-quest}}
{{chart| |!| }}
{{chart|data1|data1=Quest stage|class=va-chart-body}}
{{chart| |!| }}
{{chart|reward1|reward1=Reward: Reward|class=va-chart-reward}}
{{chart| |!| }}
{{chart|quest|quest=Leads to: Quest name (when applicable)|class=va-chart-quest}}
{{chart/end}}

Renders:

Main/Side/Unmarked Quest: Quest name
Quest stage

Styling elements

Please make sure you use the following CSS classes in the charts for the proper collapsing functions and color styling:

  • All charts must use class=mw-collapsible mw-collapsed in the {{Chart/start}} template.
  • All quests must be named "Main Quest:", "Side Quest:" or "Unmarked Quest:" and use class=va-chart-quest in the {{Chart}} template.
  • All quest stage boxes must use class=va-chart-body in the {{Chart}} template.
  • All quest rewards must use class=va-chart-reward in the {{Chart}} template.

Please do not use any other styling elements so the charts are uniform across all articles.
