@/all Remember to Unselect Your instances of Categories before Deleting the old categories for the overlapping CATEGORIES in #168

@Mad-Spy So, the current flagging for 'Hiding if Instance of 'Allies' for General is hiding if it is an instance of the Force Type allies (at the 1000 point level) that would have to likely be set as a multiple for each of the 2000 and 2500 levels as well.

Since we're not doing crazy validation and counterintuitive mucking around with the PBF and an 'Allies' category ... any thoughts on Validation for Battalions?
That might actually be a valid option.

@rweyrauch I’m recommending that you split out the catalog work you’re doing if it is for Allegiances with Allegiance Abilities (Command Traits/Artefacts/Battle Traits etc.) rather than putting it back into the catalog.
Make a copy of the file, rename the copy and generate a new primary ID. It will help out avoiding the merge problems :)
(Unless the work is specifically for GA:Order )

@OftKilted That merge was the last one using the monolithic order catalog. Time to split things up.

@OftKilted, I'm sure you're on it :) but both versions of the Vampire Lord have no point cost?

@Mad-Spy They’re free. ;)
I apparently had missed the keywords for the varghulf as well. ... and that’s what wal testers are for ...
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 16:08
Free leaders! Yes please :D
there's some other stuff I spotted, but it can wait until you've done your splitting
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 17:40
Lay it on me ... I might be able to address it while I’m splitting. How’s FEC look? It seemed pretty solid.
I’m sure I probably missed something... Just remember ... it’s not a bug ... it’s an undocumented feature. :shipit:
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 17:58
That was probably due to the amazingly awesome Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Rum Finished Wee Heavy style scotch ale ....

@/all I'm starting the process of splitting the Order catalog. So far SE, Seraphon, Fyreslayers and Slyvaneth have split out. I will push the changes after I have made the Order catalog a bit my stable.
Also, PBFs are no longer required
?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 19:03

Correct. PBF are no longer required.

Just watch when deleting Categories from the new split out. If you haven’t cleared them from the units they Error and you have to reload from the last save. (That got me once... now I save early and often.)

Take a peek in my FEC catalog. That’s relatively solid. IMO
Any errors I will blame on the ale.

@OftKilted which branch is that one best to look at it in¿
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 19:47
(Aos-v2.0) Death-Flesh-eater courts is my implementation for FEC
Probably not perfect. But it seemed to work just fine and for the 1000/2000/2500 point levels
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:08
you can fix categories by copying the IDs between the catalogues. The slight difficulty is identifying which ones you've missed!
i.e. make the category in the new catalogue have the same ID as the one in the old catalogue.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:19
For the ones I ran into it would have been copying the ID from the gst into the old catalog
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:19
ah, you forgot to switch them over! I tend to rename the catalogue ones to make finding them easier
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:20
@mad-spy Anyway, what did I miss? (Inquiring minds want to know ...)
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:20
I don't know. What did you miss?

“Some stuff you spotted...”
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:21
oh yeah. Allegiance is misspelled on the SSE.
um...
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:21
Ahh. I blame a lack of spill checkers
;)
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:21
spill chockers?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:22
Probably ...
Anything else come to mind?
What’d you think of my solution to the “Instance of Allies” issue?
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:26
Haven't had a chance to look at anything properly yet. Had a load of admin to do for a society I'm in. Nearly done and then I'll take a look.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:28
No worries. I validated it using the Allies functionality as well.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:28
what am I looking for?

@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:30
Take a peek at the SSE for General
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:31
I think that's what I did in mine as well?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:31
You only had it for 1000 points
You need all three Allies ... they’re different IDs
And we’re not using the Allies category
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:33
ok, then I don't understand what you've done :D
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:33
You’re hiding General if instance of Allies
The Allies you’re an instance of is the Force Category
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:34
yes
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:34
There’s a unique ID for each force category
You’d only selected one of them
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:34
yes, I just haven't fixed my cats since I updated the GST
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:35
No worries, I was basing it off the stuff you’d published :smile: :+1:
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:37
your implementation of Damage tables is prettier than the default option... :D
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:39
I had to do a custom one for each of the units that needed one to get that done
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:39
yeah, it's "messier" in terms of the amount of work you need to do.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:39
But it looks much much cleaner
Ended up going back and redoing Nagash and the Mortis Engine
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:40
one downside is that it means it moves around in the display.
unless we go back to numbering the profile types, which i really don't like.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:40
Not following.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 20:41
Because the output is alphabetised, the wound table for different units will be in different places.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 20:42
Yeah ... this is true, depending on how you’re displaying the data. I was displaying data in a unit centric method (basically a default view)
One could put a non-text character to force it to a specific point

But as it’s all one type of “X Wound table” it will at least still be together under X. Only oddities is that I did have several wound tables that were reused. (Zombie Dragons and Terrorgheists)

The perfect is the enemy of the good. Or Good enough.

@/all, to make everyone's life easier when splitting, GA traits and Artefacts should be in the GST. Please move yours.

Next thing we’ll have “Battalion Validation” To input ...

@Mad-Spy Did you actually submit your commit on the GA Traits and artifacts?
I'm not seeing it posted
Iain Launchbury

I did it in my oe

If you qualify for Allegiance X. And also the GA. You can choose to entirely use the GA Allegiance Traits. Does that mean that you're using Allegiance: <grand alliance> or that you're just using the traits? (See: Allegiance: Tomb Kings ... and Battleline for Tomb Queen ... No Allegiance Traits for TK)
Almost makes one want to set up an 'Allegiance: X (GA:<grand alliance>' allegiance
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 22:15
Just using the abilities.
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 14 2018 22:15
That makes more logical sense.
Lemme know when you're going to do the merge, so I can coordinate dropping the Death GA abilities into the gst.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 14 2018 22:18
Just merge yours whenever. Mine will go in via a PR.
