Sandbox Page PurposeEdit

Currently there's little centralization for questions of the interface. The Tutorial: How to Play does a fair job of introducing the core gameplay screens, but other pages such as Shop are on separate pages or are buried in the FAQ like the Admiral Stats screen. Further, to the best of my knowledge, there are in game screens that have no wiki page at all (The ranking screen on the admiral stats page, the Inventory Cash shop subpage).

Ideally this page should serve as a tree-like introduction to the various screens available, starting at the main screen and branching into the various available sub-pages. Each entry should have either a full description of the screen's elements or a short description with a link to an independent page (as in the Shop page).

I can foresee three potential fates for this page:

  1. The page is rejected entirely as being unnecessary.
  2. The new page descriptions are merged into the existing Tutorial: How to Play while the rest is rejected due to duplicate information.
  3. The new page is inducted as a new tutorial/general UI page


_Text Only Button Example_ _Icon Button Example_ Kancolle's User Interface is primarily composed of stylized buttons in Japanese. While many of the buttons are entirely text, the most common elements have integrated icons which help indicate their function. Much of learning to play Kancolle is memorization of the buttons for particular functions. As such, this tutorial aims to describe all of the interfaces of the game. [...more?]
