I have no problem with new ... But now I have learn what has changed
My GitHub Sync shows that the files had been changed 7 Months ago? Or is there also something new?

If you didn’t show up for stuff. Others likely had to do stuff with it. We haven’t been entirely dead around here :sparkles:
Basically. Nothing from 7 months ago is useful. If almost nothing. ~7 months ago the new version of bs was released right around he same time as the new GHB

Basically, nothing has been done since Battlescribe 2.0 was released.

^^ what he said
And bs 2.0 changed loads

I'm currently working through Chaos and writing up how I'm doing it into the wiki.
if you want to claim a catalogue and start doing the same, please do.

So, what stuff were you working on prior to taking leave?

Wood Elves

Feb 09 2018 11:00
Well... that isn’t really a thing ...
Wood elves are pretty much entirely compendium.

@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:01
I am sorry, I am not 100% understanding your formulations ;) I try to translate it via Google in german g
what does that mean, they are compendium?
what has changed in BS 2.0?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 09 2018 11:02
Are you familiar with the changes to The 2017 Generals Handbook?
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:02
I have started reading it today g

Wood elves as in Sylvaneth, or wood elves as in “Wood Elves”
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:03
Wood elves as "Wanderer" and "Sylaneth"
OftKilted

Feb 09 2018 11:04
@Mad-Spy So, we’re keeping with the Grand Alliance catalog breakdown? Not into the smaller factions?
The GHB 2017 Edition basically adds Allies and removes many of the old units from before age of sigmar
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:07
oh okay
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 09 2018 11:08
Hey can be played in “Narrative” but not in Matched Play because the units don’t have points anymore. And the warscrolls lost keywords.
Hey = they
So, sylvaneth/wanderers can now have any of the order units as Allies, while not loosing the Allegiance benefits
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:10
oh ok
We are playing only "Pitched Battles", which now Open Play?
no OpenPlay seems to be something differnent too ...
But what does these changes have affect on BattleScribe? I had understand that BattleScribe is for creating armies for pitched battles? And our job is to implement the Units and Rules from the Fraction-Books in BS.

@OftKilted, I don't think it's really needed. We can do Allies within the catalogues, so there's no real need to split them out.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 09 2018 11:25
So there is “Open Play” (which is basically Narrative”) and “Matched Play”
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 09 2018 11:26
In Open Play there are no real rules on army composition.
You can take a Skaven and Elves army if you want to.

@OftKilted
Feb 09 2018 11:27
(They’re now Aelves ;) )

Feb 09 2018 11:27
:tm:
In Pitched Battle play, there are limits on which units you can take based on a "Pitched Battle Faction". You can only include units which are in your Faction, or specified Allies Factions.
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:28
Aelves are not new in 2017!? They did exist since AoS, or now? I mean I am using the Aelves selection to build my wood elves army from Wanderer and Sylaneth
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 09 2018 11:29
@Mad-Spy So the side challenge, from an upkeep perspective, is that some folks may not have an interest in keeping up an entire Grand Alliance.
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:29
yes
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 09 2018 11:29
it's not a huge issue, we'll just need to be more careful with merges.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Feb 09 2018 11:32
@Cupropituvanso the change from Old world to Age of Sigmar changed the names from Elf to Aelf. I was making an attempt at language humor. And GW changing to trademarkable (TM) or (C) copywritable language
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:37
and what is now the affect of our work in BS?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 09 2018 11:37
Read through the page I've put up on the wiki regarding implementation guidelines.
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:38
okay
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Feb 09 2018 11:38
it's not finished, but it should give you a start.
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Feb 09 2018 11:48
Okay I will read it ... thanks for the short crash-curse ... because of some language deficits its possible that I have still questions after that.
I hope I can still help with my workpower.
