Finally got Allegiance + PBF visibility working how I want it. Now to fix unit visibility and add Allies!

@ilaunchbury better to do this here
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 22:52
yes.
You'll need the chaos-updates branch
and the chaos.cat
I'm working on Centigors at the minute.

I have RSEs for the unit in it's own faction, plus a copy with the "Allies" category for use in other factions.
Ignore the points increment on the Centigors, I was trying to work around the issue.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 22:55
ah, this is to handle the differing costs for "full block" as opposed to the regular increment?
massive regiments I think was the name
why not make a standard entry for the unit, then a selection for 'standard' and 'massive regiment'?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 22:56
No, I can do that by modifying the base cost of the multiple, because the discount is still a multiple
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 22:56
sidestep the issue
explain the issue you're having again? might be easier to understand when I'm looking at it

Open the roster editor, and add a Pitched Battle (1000)
Select Brayherds as your Allegiance, add a Pitched Battle Faction and Select Brayherds again.

right
what next
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 22:58
add a Chimera, you should see the "you've spent too many points on Allies" message
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 22:58
ah
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 22:59
ok?

now add Chaos Warhounds and increment them over 200pts
the message doesn't trigger because the multiplied point values isn't actually pushed up to the unit.
I've tried to work around it on the Centigors by incrementing the unit cost, but I can't work out how to do that and keep a cost showing for the models
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR

I think it's because your allies version of the unit and your regular version of the unit are triggering showing in the list simultaneously, so it's picking one link to follow at random
because centigors are showing as allies points
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 23:02
they should
in this case.
It's really annoying that modifying the name of an RSE doesn't actually modify the name of the RSE, but of the linked SSE.
otherwise it would be easier to tag them.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 23:03
why not make a named RE with a link?
not elegant, but it would allow a rename
@ilaunchbury where is the allies validation done?
just so I can follow the logic chain
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 23:06
in the Force Entry in the GST
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 23:12
right
now that I fully understand the issue, it's a nasty one
the increment repeat works
but the unit itself doesn't
I think you might have found a BS bug
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 23:13
yes, because BS isn't actually counting the points properly.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 23:14
looks like you'll have to switch everything over to increments until the issue gets explained to Jon and fixed
because I can't see any other way to force it
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 23:14
no, I can't work out a way to do it another way either.
thx anyway
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 23:16
that's a pretty freaky issue
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 23:16
yeah, it's pretty horrible
it's not technically a bug, because it is counting the right thing.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 26 2018 23:17
the other option is to just give the unit a cost and decrement it based on number of selections
but that would look really odd in the roster builder
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 26 2018 23:19
I think I'll just have to accept that the models won't be able to display a cost unless I put it in the name for now.
