Dude, I just had a GREAT idea for how to redo the catalogues, and keep things VERY organized. Instead of adding the alliance, have the "units" be the different subfactions of the alliance. Think of them like Formations. Then have the units within it as shared group entries to add them to your army.
Would make things WAY easier for the end user, instead of having to scroll through a lot of things.
So say for Chaos, there are different "formations" for Khorne Bloodbound, Silver Tower, Daemons of Chaos, etc
with no unit constraints on them, but broken down into sections like HQ, Battleline, Behemoth, etc
This way the user can still make an alliance of one or three subfactions without having to browse through all the other ones they have no intention of using

Downside is it would be difficult to set the right number of units
Wait, you can set it up to reduce max entries of each entry group dependent on selections from the other entry groups

Shit, just change how it's set up with the existing setup. The selection is a radio button now, why not set it to multiple choices, just max of one each?
Easiest way possible

So each item you select from would be the faction, and when selecting the faction in you list you would have the unit options?

For my initial thought yes, second thought was instead of having the alliance as a single choice radio button, make it multi selectable, and show the units from the factions the user selects. Because as it is, if you select Khorne Bloodhound for instance, add units, then change to Khorne Daemons to add some, then change back to all chaos, it will give errors for how many you have selected
Look at the SM catalogue for 40k, see how the Show FW option is set up. Same line of thinking, just expanded upon

I understand. I mean it only throws the errors if you select a unit that changes role. I'll have some time tmw to pick at it and see.

It was doing it for leaders that don't change roles

Question for you experts. Ironjawz battalions I've set up... Units in a battalion choice don't count towards the battleline requirements for pitched battle. Easily fixed?
Been away for the weekend so haven't had chance to look at it.

Did you copy the entries or link the shared ones?
