So what's the trick with EntryGroup with MaxSelection?? If I have multiple Entries or Links under an EntryGroup, why doesn't it invalidate if the user selects too many Entries?

My first pass at the new Tau codex is in my branch. I'm not ready to push to master without a bit more testing. Please give me your feedback. https://github.com/efalsken/wh40k

Uh, I get three errors only on opening the catalogue file. 3x 'Condition must have a child that exists.'
TY7 Devilfish has two root links which look the same.

Ok now I found where the Condition errors are from. The modifiers on roster rules (Coord. Firepower and Ideal Mission Comm.) are the bad guys.
Hunter Cadre lacks defaults. I know it's not natural, but I think we agreed to set defaults to the minimum-cost units.

Riptides, Stealths, Crisises and Broadsides need to have the Drone group name uniform
Amadeusz Sadowski

And, as a personal opinion, I hate the options nesting into battlesuit choice on Commander. I do know it's the only way, I just had to air it. Maybe a little hint in the armour group name, like: 'Battlesuit (options inside)'. IDK.
Other than that, @efalsken - nice job man! I'll do the changes now and send it to BSData master. I feel you've done near-perfect job. Perfect enough for blue communists we are.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 18:45
Also, I feel the construction of Sponson Gun Drones is overnested. It's two times mentioned it has two gun drones.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:11
Also, why did you bubble up Drone choices for Stealth/Pathfinder/Strike/Breacher teams? It's very unclear now. You have a group 'up to 2' which throws error when you don't have team leader. Count me against that. Either append some text ie 'requires leader' or nest into leader.

@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:36
yeah. I found another way to do the drone things.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:37
ok I hope you haven't done much
I've already fixed most of this
Eric Falsken

ah.
I was just starting

just a sec, I'm doing pull request
will do to your branch

I'm also getting the big web bundle so I'll have that dataslate to add, too.

Haha I knew you couldn't resist ;) I'm getting Burning Dawn too, but still waiting.
okay, PR sent

Oh, good place for the Ideal Mission Commander
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:43
yup, thought so.
still not convinced how to do the Combined Firepower. And don't know how yours reacts, but in mine Cat Editor, after reopening, modifiers on root rules always get lost. They stay in the file, but don't display.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:44
Assigned Air Caste Asset is such a stupid "formation" with no extra rules and no flexibility.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:44
It's not a formation
It's the same as in Necron Decurion
It's just actually a fancy name for a group of Army List Entries. Same as Drone Network.
and in necrons they have Star Gods.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:45
It's an Auxiliary, but doesn't have its own formation dataslate
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:45
and Eldar have the single Wraithknight.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:46
did you fix the sponson gundrones?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:46
nope
the part you missed probably is in the third paragraph on page 71. Second sentence, the last part: '... whose slots are a combination of specific Formations and Army List Entries instead of Battlefield Roles.' - Drones and flyers are just that, Army List Entries as Auxiliary choices.
The same is Command choice. It's not a formation, it's a collection of ALEntries. No additional rules. Which kinda makes me sad, as everyone up to us had some.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:49
Our HQs aren't very notable.
But seriously, couldn't they give Farsight Eternal Warrior or something??? He's got a sword-of-life-stealing ... but these puny humans have every rule you can think of.
Coordinated Firepower looses its conditions on my system now.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:51
yup. I also find it very funny that if Command choice has Shadowsun, you still have to take XV8s. It's only natural to have her get XV25s, but geedubs never really thinks things through.
but does it throw errors or just doesn't show them?
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:52
doesn't show
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:52
me too

in the catalog editor
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:52
it's cat editor bug
check roster, it shows correctly.
but in cat editor, nope.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:52
I'm going to try to put it as a shared rule and then link it in.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 19:53
That's a good idea.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 19:57
That works. But I still don't like puting the condition based on the Hunter Cadre. It's our only Core, but it could get us in trouble if there's ever another core selection.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 20:05
Well the best we could do is to create Detachment Rules category in gst, and appropriate entry in cat. I think it was already suggested somewhere.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 20:05
Hmmm. I don't like the defaults on the hunter cadre. Makes it look like I have to bring those units.

BSData/wh40k#1130
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 20:06
I managed to do it. And it prints in the "force rules" section separate from the rest of the special rules.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 20:06
But it's better than to look at options and see 'oh, a HC for 85 pts?'
how? very interested.
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 20:06
oh, so the HC will have a point value...

Discussion I meant: BSData/wh40k#1130
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 20:07
Shared Rule with "hide if <1 HC". root link to rule.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 20:07
Nice! Does the condition still show up after reloading?
Eric Falsken
@efalsken
Nov 01 2015 20:10
yes
because it's on the shared rule, not on the root.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Nov 01 2015 20:10
so that's the method. :D
