Gameplay and Balance Indicator
Page under construction
The Gameplay and Balance indicator is a simple graphical device that authors can add to their OXP/OXZ wiki pages to give players an idea of how the Expansion might affect their game.
This takes the form of an image based on a 'traffic-lights' principle using colours of the spectrum. Green is neutral, Orange and Red indicate that the Expansion will make the game harder, and Blue and Violet indicate those which make the game easier.

It is possible to use more than one Indicator for an Expansion Pack, so an Uber-ship with a nasty NPC version and a silly player version could use both Red and Violet, with annotations such as
Adding the Indicator to your Wiki page
To add this feature to your page, simply isert the following code (specifying the image you need). This would normally be added to the bottom of the page.

Conditions of Use
There is no compulsion to use this, or any other rating system. Authors can use them or ignore them freely. However, many players do find such guidance useful.
This Balance Indicator system was developed by Smivs, and anybody is free to use it.
