@flakpanda Roger that. Well, once the refactoring done, if you guys need someone to work on Kharadron Overlords, I'd be happy to.

@flakpanda anything I can help with?

The updated changes to Battlescribe offer some interesting opportunities to leverage categories. Especially as you can use categories as min/max and membership requirements.

Does that mean It wasn't sensefully to add a wood elve unit today?

Not the worst thing you could have done - just means it needs to be refactored with the other old stuff
@flakpanda do GST first, that way I could possibly start working on order and adding compendium things?

@Cupropituvanso no, that fine. but the work i have done originally (but never uploaded >.<) is kinda moot now with @StealthKnightSteg updating things. @alphalas what needs to be done as far as the gst goes, Leader/Behemoth needs to be removed, and all such units need both individual tags. i suggest making the Leader catagory main for roster purposes. then a list of all shared keywords between even two grand alliances needs to be entered into the gst. i.e.: human, daemon, ect...
I am just too busy between work and school right now to helm this. if someone is willing to, that would be an awesome help.
@/all the idea now is that alliance keywords will be checkboxes instead of radio buttons. so no min constraint and max 1. each one checked makes a list more refined and moves unit roles around. ie other to battleline

@flakpanda we can actually keep leader/behemoth as a category to use with creation, (as he primary category) and still filter on leader and behemoth as individual category maximums. (I was playing with that in my repo copy)
I was looking at adding the default keywords into the gst (including stuff like fly and wizard, priest, hero, totem) and adding keywords as factions. The keywording and categories would allow for updating the battalions based on those.

Additionally, it would be possible to leverage something like "Skirmish Hero" and "Skirmish Unit" as an additional category. (Though my experience has been spotty for handling min/max changes when selecting those for filtering.)

@OftKilted sounds like your the man with a plan for this

We can impliment skirmish after setting up 2.01.xx. get the main game down first. And I agree with @alphalas
Leaving L/B and counting them towards Ls and Bs sounds fine. I'll leave it to you then @OftKilted, get the GST set up and them let us know so the catalogs can get worked on.
I'm assuming you want order @alphalas ?

Skirmish wouldn't be difficult. New detachment type, new category for skirmish. Don't include normal hero/battleline/whatever in root entry, then make two links. One for normal AoS usage with normal points listed and appropriate cats, one for skirmish with point total modifier
Only throwing my two cents in because I've thought about it, not because I plan on doing anything lol, just offering ideas

@cartag is right, creating the new skirmish category is/was easy in my test repo

@flakpanda not really but I can try to get compendium stuff in and convert old stuff
cartag

Jun 22 2017 20:05
Just don't set primary on the shared entry, set it in the links to it
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Jun 22 2017 20:05
Not saying it isn't easy, just want the main game focused on first.

@OftKilted
Jun 22 2017 20:05
I'll toss up my proposed additional categories, and make sure we don't break existing cat files

@alphalas not saying you have to 😛

As an aside, it is possible to do point limit warnings for the various levels. And we would need to add an additional point type. (Much like power level vs points in 40k)

You are talking about combining pitched battle into one?

No
The gst doesn't really allow it ... I did try it though

The gst didnt seem to allow conditional constraint modification (at least how I was attempting it)
