Interesting template, but why using 525px images instead of the 520px preceeding images? Sorry, but I just see the ugly pieces of arrows at the upper right and lower right corners. Is there a technical problem that perevents the usage of 520px images? UserID (talk) 22:03, 31 July 2018 (CEST)

As long as the image is cropped using the same top-left point as reference there shouldn't be an issue. The 525px is just a recommendation to avoid users cropping the image too much on the right side. BTW, some mission trees were tagged as generic based on the number of tags using them [such as the daimyo]. Edit: To clarify, some images were replaced due to having too big of an offset from said top-left point and not for having a different width -- I didn't want to overload the template with offset parameters, but maybe in the future with an expanded template. ~ SolSys (talk) 06:38, 1 August 2018 (CEST)
OK, so now I wonder if it is not easier to modify the template and the preconisation to 520px avoid the arrows. I think it is easier to recommend to crop the image instead of editing each image erasing the arrows. And by the way, for the Daimyo, sorry but it is not clear: how to differenciate the generic and the nation based trees? What about tatar missions which are shared with many nations? The problem with the Daimyo is that the file contains generic=yes, but in game, the player see the country shield (has_country_shield = yes). The country shield significates that it is a national mission and the generic=yes just significate a generic=no mission can override the generic=yes slots. So, my opinion for for a simple sorting: country shield -> national tree / no country shield -> generic tree. UserID (talk) 21:32, 1 August 2018 (CEST)
Again, the template will work perfectly fine with images of at least 520px [changed the note since it seemed to be an issue] as long the point of reference remains the same. Regarding the generic vs national difference it is more of a wiki indicator -- the generic missions are maintained in a central location [the template]. A similar approach is taken with NIs where commonly used NIs are called from a dedicated template. Hopefully I'll have some time to improve it over this weekend. ~ SolSys (talk) 20:52, 2 August 2018 (CEST)
