Can i get a quick opinion on BSData/wh40k#1874 ? If you take more than one Venerable Dread i hide the option to take a transport as the codex states you can't. Would it be better to just add a validation rule? (I think i also added one anyway to catch invalid builds already made)
I only ask as that's the 3rd time someone has raised this as a bug
I tested on PC, Android & iOS and it all works as expected.

@penguin20000 maybe they assume you can take a drop pod for each dread?

That's the only thing i can think of
I'm going to triple check my ePub now

So, showing it and adding a validation check is a teaching opportunity for the players
Which book?

Yeah, it might be because i only did the Venerable Dreadnaught unit
I had to make a slight change & move the individual dread to a Shared Entity to easily add the "Start Collecting" formation
"If the unit includes no additional Venerable Dreadnoughts, it may select a Drop Pod as a Dedicated Transport."
I might show it, add the validation rule if it's not there & make sure i do the same to the other dreadnought units

Shared entries are your friend. <humor> Unlike the iron hands. They're cheezy. </humor>

Word of warning to all: If you are moving units over from Entries to Shared Entries, you may want to make the initial shared entry first, or first remove their battlefield role. There's a bug I've spotted in 1.16 that messes with it.

I've been doing that a lot, whoops

and copy/paste doesn't work so well sometimes. It doesn't pick up on all the modifiers sometimes.

Same here, and I can't confirm that's the cause of the issue, but all signs point to it. My KDK file was created from scratch and nothing has the issue, the Daemon file was all copied over to Shared and almost everything has the issue.

I've been copy pasting in the raw xml instead of the program
easier than fixing all the modifiers

yeah, that should work. but be sure to clear the category when doing that since the category doesn't exist for shared entries.

It's BattleScribe/Alphas#35 if anybody wants to see my research into it

If anybody else is checking out the Alpha as well, I urge you to submit bug reports. Do them each in an individual thread, and include screenshots if possible. Besides, I need @jonskichov to hate somebody other than me :)
