@Mad-Spy Well ... it seems to work pretty well, given what you've setup. I guess figuring out what would need to be pulled from allies, v.s. taken normally would be important.

Yep, it seems to work well. It's certainly less confusing for an end-user than having the Allies listed in the main roster list, and it makes it much easier to build rosters with Allies included as there is clear separation between what is in the main list and what counts as Allies.

Definitely an “education curve” especially in situations where I want to have units from multiple sources that all meet the same keyword. (E.G. Nurgle, Tzeentch, Skaven ... Or warscrolls that have multiple factions.) Right now I can have multiple forces in the roster, (which would allow something like “Guardians of Aleriel” with Sylvaneth and SCE) but the second force (not child force) still requires an Allegiance.
We may need to do “Max1 One Allegiance per Roster” Not just one Allegiance per Force.

You have to do Allegiance per Force otherwise you can't give correct Relics to characters.
If a Battalion has cross-PBF members, then I think they'll have to be in the catalogue, but hidden unless the battalion is selected.

I have created a new branch yesterday at tool a look at the actual order file.
After a few minutes of confusion I closed it g
Tomorrow I will try again

@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 21:38
@Cupropituvanso did you have any questions on the process?
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 21:38
And now I read the Implemtation Guide again g
I was wondering about the Names with the special characters
If you have a bit time I will go to my computer and I check again what was strange for me
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 21:40
So, I’m using the special characters (like a - ) to identify that I have done work on or completed a unit. When I roll to final, I will clear all those out
(This is for the death.cat)
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 21:40
I was in Order.cat
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 21:41
It’s likely the same there. With large catalogs keeping track of where one is, and what has been completed is critical
This allows me to say “I’ve completed this unit” to help with tracking as we are moving through the process
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 21:42
is there a legend anywhere?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 21:43
No. :(
As long as you are consistent with your chosen marks and only using it to identify completed units you should be fine.
This just helps so we’re making it easier to see what has been done, and what still needs to be done
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 21:45
ok I am sitting in front of it now
oh yeah g
!, #, $, %%, %, *, +, -, =, ?, @@, @, ^

I am just looking in the Roaster Editor...
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 21:58
I’d have to take a look at them to check. But we’re working hard.
Death is in a really good state currently.
We’re currently looking at the effort to split the individual battletomes out
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:00
ok I take a look at death
okay okay ... it all makes sense more and more

The marks in order catalog are to help keep units from a faction together so it is easier to work on. The unit names will be cleaned up before release.
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:05
I did not notice the most obvious :D
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:23
ok ... slowly I am checking whats missing in the order-cat
the hidden configuration in the Shared Selection Entries is not set completly
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:33
Okay ... I am afraid ... But it seems this exceeds that simple game we play ... I was wandering why in so much units there is "Stormcast Eternals" ... I have never heard it ... it seems to be a big thing in the General Handbook
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:33
My recommendations would be to take a look at the Sylvaneth, which you said you wanted to work on. And check their status
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:34
wood elves :)
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:34
There are more Stormcast Eternal Units than anything else
Sylvaneth/Wood Elves/Wanderers ... all part of the same thing
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:34
I am just trying to find out what are Stormcast Eternal Units :)
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:35
They’re a new faction created by Sigmar after the fall of the old world
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:35
yes, I was just kidding g because I play mostly only wanderer ... but yes it it all in the same book
ok ... so I take the Wood Elves Book ... the Pitched Battle Tables from both General Handbooks and check if anything is correct
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:37
So, this is a slightly humorous (but still legitimate) source article on the SCE: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Stormcast_Eternals
Here is another (more serious) article : http://whfb.lexicanum.com/wiki/Stormcast_Eternals
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:39
Okay ...
in the last article there is a Units List
But I have found Units in the Order Cat which have the Stormcast Eternals, but are not in this Unit List
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:40
We are using the Pitched Battle Table, and also entering the rules and profile data.
The articles may not be fully up to date
Not just the point values.
The Pitched Battle Profiles only cover points. We are entering the Warscroll data into the catalog as well
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:42

ok, I can check the pitched battle table, rules and profile ... that is something I can do and have done in the past :) just updating infos ... thats simple

the Hidden-Config ... I am not sure I have enough informations for that

OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:43
Every bit helps. :+1:
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:44
of course I will not only add points ;) I am using BattleScribe Only for playing, so I write down all necassary for playing ... that was my motivation to work with you even if it makes it a bit complicater for me, because I have to translate everything during game in german :P
if you can share me a list, or tell me where to find (ex. in the general handbooks), I will also check the hidden-settings.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:45
I think there are German editions of AoS?
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:47
last time I looked was years ago and there I found some old and not updated ... and no chance to work together. so I have only downloaded and updated it. Then comes AoS and I searched again and found your team
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:48
GW released an online tool to help create lists, but it doesn’t do any kind of data validation (for example: is the list correct)
And another subscription app that can create lists.
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:49
Oh I know ... I love BattleScribe to much :)
I have the Army Book in German and English

The General Handbooks I have only in english, because I use iBooks and GW only released it in english digital
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:50
What?! That’s crazy!
Cupropituvanso Draco
@Cupropituvanso
Mar 08 2018 22:50
yes :D german only in paper
and I hate paper :)
And the last thing I want to tell before I am going to bed ... We only play pitched battles ... mostly with 1.500 points ... so the whole story of Age Of Sigmar does not affect us
This saturday is the first time we use the 2017er Rules :)
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 08 2018 22:53
Well, welcome to the 2017 Rules!
And have a great evening.
