But to actually answer your question, I don't know if anybody's working on SM stuff currently
@senpai514 hasn't done anything since Christmas

Right o
I'd like say i'd have time to look at it but work is crazy currently :(

I'm content covering the four files I already have

:)

Well i don't want to say i'll do it & then take a month getting it all added because i've had no time, if someone else can sort it quicker. If you know what i mean.

But if i know no one else is working on it then i don't have to worry about conflicting with anyone if i do suddenly get some time one evening

yeah, I get what you're saying... I just found a massive headache in 2.0
I'm guessing other data authors have unit profiles be modified by upgrades the unit can take? Like for CSM, if they take Mark of Nurgle they get +1 T.
If the profile is not at root level, it's not processing the modifier if it's a link in the root entry, only if it directly references the shared entry.
It'll make more sense here: BattleScribe/Desktop-Alphas#88

i haven't even gotten around to looking at 2.0 yet

I've been alpha testing for quite a while
We have a branch up for getting everything ready for the eventual switch over

Yeah, i've been keeping up with the chat in here mostly
Even though i may not talk much i'm usually lurking :)

Setting up the GST to keep the shared entries for things in the BRB. So no more having Boltguns exist in 87 different files at once

Did you manage to recover any of the stuff you lost to the corruption bug? (see nothing comes from this chaos stuff)
cartag
@cartag
Apr 28 2016 15:58
yeah, I got it all recovered fairly quickly. I'm glad I made the branch, I was able to just dl my progress so far.

Any idea if the shared stuff will be extended on?

How so?

Would be awesome if we can make a file for a FW book for example
and all the marine files look at that for example
cartag
@cartag
Apr 28 2016 15:59
I don't believe there will be functionality to allow it to pull from a source other than the GST and the data file itself
penguin20000
@penguin20000
Apr 28 2016 16:00
So you don't have to go and add flashy FW Space Marine Tank 5 into however many marine files we have
Ahh bummer
cartag
@cartag
Apr 28 2016 16:01
I don't know how hard it would be to add that functionality though, might be worth posting a suggestion in https://github.com/BattleScribe/Desktop-Alphas/ though

:) I'll drop a ticket in this evening. Nearly finishing time

Right now the only things in the GST are going to be the base keywords (rules) and profiles from the BRB, and the fortifications from Stronghold Assault. The latter is being included as a functionality feature so there will be no need for a "Fortification Detachment" any longer.
penguin20000
@penguin20000
Apr 28 2016 16:04
Makes total sense :)
Then when 8th drops later this year all the rules only need updating in 1 place :D
cartag
@cartag
Apr 28 2016 16:05
I love how there's rumors of 8th dropping this year, and rumors of the new CSM book being in Spring of next year.
Because fuck me, that's why.

(8th being my own pure speculation/cynicism)
I have a friend who plays a lot of armies and he's constantly complaining that most of them aren't that strong currently
cartag
@cartag
Apr 28 2016 16:07
What does he play?
penguin20000
@penguin20000
Apr 28 2016 16:07
Chaos, Blood Angels, Crons, Nids
Guard
He has some ad mech
cartag
@cartag
Apr 28 2016 16:07
Please tell me he doesn't complain about Necrons being underpowered.
penguin20000
@penguin20000
Apr 28 2016 16:07
He never uses them tbh
cartag
@cartag
Apr 28 2016 16:07
Chaos, Nids, and Guard I can see
penguin20000
@penguin20000
Apr 28 2016 16:07
not sure why
Mainly the others
Makes me chuckle he wasn't complaining when they first came out & he was pounding me into the dirt with my 4th edition Tau dex

Chaos Daemons aren't bad currently, but CSM needs a major overhaul
penguin20000
@penguin20000
Apr 28 2016 16:09
Yeah he doesn't have Daemons
His favourite tactic used to be a Khorne lord on Jugganaught with the Axe of blind Fury
Hiding in some Spawn meat shields

Change it to a Daemon Prince with the axe and you have my Captain Rapeface

It only makes him S8, AP2, and gains A 5+D6 if I don't roll a one.
