Hey guys, what's your opinion of the Firebase Support Cadre?? The old dataslate and the new codex formation have the exact same name. Does the Codex edition replace the old one entirely? (remove the old one) Or only as a Hunter Contingent Auxiliary Formation? (both would be selectable as independent formations, but only the new FSC would be able to be added to a Hunter Contingent Detachment)

only a slight bit more confusing because a fair number of the new formations are named the same as in the Warzone Damocles book.
IMHO, the policy on current, in-print codex support should extend to Formation Dataslates too. Formations from books no longer in print (or available electronically) should be purged with the new codex. The Firebase Support Cadre was available retail for a very short time only. (and the ebook is still available for purchase) But Warzone Damocles is NOT available for purchase.

Warzone Damocles is available for purchase tomorrow?
Kauyon?
Eric Falsken

@whiskeyjuvenile
Oct 31 2015 02:28 UTC
oh, the old one

In the new Codex Tau Empire, a number of the formations have the same name as the ones in Warzone Damocles (wich is not available for purchase)
and the Firebase Support Cadre..... both versions (new Codex and old formation dataslate) are available for purchase.

it's a well known rule, that if something has the same name, it definitely replaces any older ones.
so, we now have to use the new FSC, and remove the old one.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:37 UTC
but it's still for purchase.
Amadeusz Sadowski

GW's fault
No, I really don't think it's intentional.
How's your work going? Didn't see anything pushed to GitHub
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:39 UTC
so many differences. The one guy did send a file, but all he did was hack a few of the point updates.
I'm putting the formations in properly, etc.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:39 UTC
so, you're modifying ours, or using the guy's?
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:39 UTC
ours

I'm also going through every rule, profile, abiltiy, and gear
Amadeusz Sadowski

Oct 31 2015 21:40 UTC
Any particular reason?
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:40 UTC
wording changes on a lot of little things here and there.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:40 UTC
I believe not much changed.
Really?
Oh.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:40 UTC
e.g. Pulse Accelerator field now says "if at least one, then increase 6 inches" instead of "increases range 6 inches".
Amadeusz Sadowski

Nice of them to care for those details. Not nice they didn't fix the issue with Seeker shooting ground-to-air.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:41 UTC
updating profiles with things like the new drone markings... MV1 Gun Drone, MV6 Marker, MV8 Shield.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:41 UTC
Yup, that's good.
I actually very much like those new markings.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:41 UTC
almost everything is now "friendly units with the Tau Empire Faction"
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:42 UTC
Right.
Which time zone are you?

That's good, I think.
I can work when you sleep

For formations, is it normal for us to use an Entity Group instead of modifiers?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:45 UTC
Definitely.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:45 UTC
yeah. the modifiers validate, but it's annoying to have to make the manual addition.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:45 UTC
More clear for us to read (modifiers can get pesky) and an additional chance to put some header text for the choice.
Yup, the auto add is the best in group.
If you will finish today, push it and release it. If not, would you mind pushing the file (on a separate branch) when you're done today? I'll get on it tomorrow then.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:48 UTC
I'm working hard on it. I'd like to finish. I'll be able to finish it tomorrow for sure.
Amadeusz Sadowski

Oct 31 2015 21:52 UTC
Great. Can't wait for it. Keep it up, for The Greater Good. Also, very nice package you've posted on FB. Just an army, or a diorama is planned?
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:52 UTC
updates for my army.
Need something for my Manta to deploy....
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:54 UTC
KV128 needs a modified Manta tough, I think. Is there another one coming? Kidding. :D
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:55 UTC
I won't be modifying my Manta, but an air-dropped KV128 sounds pretty boss...
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Oct 31 2015 21:55 UTC
Sound like 'Titanfall in 3.. 2... 1..."
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Oct 31 2015 21:55 UTC
we'll let those pretty-boy marines troop their "knights" through the mud. We like to fly.
Amadeusz Sadowski

okay, I won't interrupt you no longer. gotta sleep. tomorrow's gonna be a big day.
