It's not that issue (I don't think there's separate one), it's something I noticed while working on #1966, so I included it as part of my fix for the Ironwolves

@SuperPranx it needs a default selection as otherwise it has a validation error to start with wich is a pain due ti the way it was made its a pain, you can take #1940 sorry got a big project at work

@hisop the choice would be wrong either way, since the WGBL can't take 2 Chainswords. At least this way the UI doesn't glitch out and the user is informed that he must make a choice. If I leave the 2 Chainsword option, even though their choice is limited to 1, BattleScribe adds 2 Chainswords and instead of displaying a checkbox for a single Chainsword, it displays an up/down control like all the other weapons. When you change the selection back to 1 it switches back to a checkbox, but from a user perspective it's not very nice. I hope v1.16 brings a way to fix this.

I would also like to rename the formations to include the quotes (") around the name, as was done for previous formations. This would make them go first in the shared entry lists in the catalog and they would be easier to find for us. I thought this was a good idea and I'd like to apply it to the new formations as well. Do you think this would be ok?
I would do it after my current request is pulled to the master just so it doesn't all go in a single merge.

I noticed the bug i was thikig about it :P
Most other codex's split all options into two "hands" thus eliminating this problem
Well i leave it to a group decision i hate the quotes and stars ad stuff :P
I dot even like the [FW]
ut thats just me
Stupid B and N key are playing up...
You ca re-arrange in the xml BTW without a need for quotes.]

The catalog editor orders them alphabetically, so it doesn't really matter what I do in the xml, but I haven't tried changing the xml directly

Only re-arranges them if you change them, if you move it i the xml it wont move until you change it in the editor.

Thanks for the merge and I agree, the weapon choices have to be rethought. I've been thinking about this for some time, but with the current implementation of BattleScribe the only way I could think of were the separate weapon choices.
Ah, ok, no point in changing the order then. Each one will get updated sooner or later :)

Haha true :P i think something is coming for re-arranging in 1.16 i just like everything to be in alphabetical order, i spend 5 minuits looking for something to relies its got quotes :P
For the weapons look at SM codex cat.

That's true for me as well :D but I was looking for something in the 'quotes section' and it turned out to have no quotes (Ancients of the Fang) :D
I'll leave them as they are until v1.16 comes out, but we'll need to make a deccission afterwards about how we want to have them, either all quoted or all unquoted. Without consistency we'll always blunder around the catalog looking for them.
I'll take a look at the SM codex when I have the time, thanks.

Yeah i just feel the way the game is going everything is becoming a formation and thus the quotes add nothing :P

True. We'll just have to wait and see where GW decides to take us in the end.

Basically right now it's just a mapping, so to say. Not much logic yet.

@SuperPranx and where were you looking?
It should be on email, if not - https://github.com/BSData surely will show it.
