Stealth Ward icon
Unobstructed vision
A unit with unobstructed sight can see the full circle of their Sight icon vision radius, ignoring all obstructions. This effect does not allow the user to see into Brushmaker brush, although they will be able to see beyond the brush if within range.

Having unobstructed sight will benefit all forms of vision, including True Sight icon true sight and Ambush 2 camouflage detection - i.e. you will be able to reveal stealthed units over walls where usually terrain would block true sight. Nearsight icon Nearsight prevents this vision entirely; the user's sight radius will not infiltrate beyond terrain.

All tip data templates use the same parameter.

Retrieval of data items

{{data Unobstructed 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 Unobstructed 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.
