Obscured vision
An obscured target only has their position revealed to the enemy—such as through a silhouette or movement pattern—but their unit remains an un-rendered target for selection (i.e. they cannot be selected for unit-targeted attacks, draw Monster icon monster aggro).

This is distinct from being Playful untargetable as an obscured unit is still vulnerable to auras, direction-targeted and ground-targeted effects, and auto-targeted effects that do not require Sight icon sight of targets. Obscured vision is not concealed by Nearsight icon nearsight.

All tip data templates use the same parameter.

Retrieval of data items

{{data Obscured vision|pst2|interrupts}}, using parameter selection template Template:Pst2, gives the parameter interrupts, etc.

For retrieval of more data items it is more efficient to prepare a template for that, to be used as follows:

{{data Obscured vision|template name|..|..|..|..}}

so that this data template needs to be called only once.[1] The default template is Template:Tip data, producing this page.

The four parameters are optional, they are passed on to the prepared template as parameters 2-5.

A parameter being undefined or empty typically means the same, see below. {{data ..|pst2|..}} gives the empty string and the text "{{{..}}}", respectively. Therefore, an application checking the parameter has to check both. Checking whether a result is equal to e.g. the text "{{{popinc}}}" cannot be done directly with #ifeq in a template which itself has also a parameter with that name, because if that is defined, there would be a comparison with the value instead of the text itself. Instead, it can be checked whether the first character of the result is "{", e.g.: {{#ifeq:{{padleft:|1|{{data {{{continent}}}|pst2|popinc}}}}|{|..|..}}. Until here the documentation is automatically generated by Template:Tip data.
