Has anyone else found that default selections are now not being selected at all...?

I haven't looked at it since the update, do you have an example?
Jon Kissinger

Are you selecting the default in the drop down in editor?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Dec 21 2016 10:31
Yes, for example, Deathwatch Veterans should select bolter and chainsword as standard, but they don't :-(
I'm sure I found some other instances last night but I can't remember them now....

In deathwatch veterans, the weapon options doesnt have a min constraint, so no default is selected.
If you add "min 1 in parent" to the weapon options it works.
now that the default selection bug is gone, you can probably go back to doing 1 default from each of the 2 groups.

@alphalas Thanks for the prompt response. Thought my data was updated!

No problem man - I've been pushing updates daily

TBH this my first time looking under the hood in terms of Battlescribe 40K data
but I absolutely rely on it, so it's nice to talk to the people who actually put in the work to keep my data updated

Also I do apologize if I was too curt with you - it's just since I've taken over those cats, I've basically rewritten SoB, am about to rewrite GK, and then will rewrite Inq.
Adam Whitehurst
@nairul
Dec 21 2016 17:45
I see. Is there a lot more to do with SoB?
Also, is an IA epub available somewhere?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 21 2016 17:47
Not really, not ATM - but I'm expecting it come January-.-
There is - if you scroll way up in the chat you should see it
Adam Whitehurst
@nairul
Dec 21 2016 17:54
Eh went all the way back to Dec. 14 and don't see it

ffs
GW really wants to piss me off. Yet another multi codex formation -.-
cut me some slack....
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 21 2016 21:29
You don't have to do it though lol
I'm doing it the cheater way - just putting the sister/terminator/DWVet into the inq cat
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Dec 21 2016 22:18
Im just doing it the detachment way... works and is consistent with the way I did the other ones
but goddamnit I want a unified admechcodex!
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 21 2016 22:19
Oh you're talking about the battleforce box
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Dec 21 2016 22:20
jup
just got 2 :D
and with rules in hand I added it
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 21 2016 22:20
I need to get me the tau and DW ones
I was talking about the inq formation that allows you to take a sister squad, a GK term squad, or a DW vet squad
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Dec 21 2016 22:22
thats basically the same but less obvious
would be rather bad to add skitarii units to cult mech and vice versa :P
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 21 2016 22:23
Fair
I'm doing "hidden unless instances of ordo inquis" route
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Dec 21 2016 22:31
works, especially since the GKs and stuff are in C:IA
so a GK update doesn't screw that over
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Dec 21 2016 22:32
Meh I'm rewriting GK anyway
It's dumb the way it is
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Dec 21 2016 22:32
quite possible :P but having the same entry in 2 files would normally mean double the maintenance

The Ork Dread Mob Cat can be removed at this point. I've got it all in the main Ork Cat.

@alphalas what exactly is dumb there? I ask seriously, I use that cat quite often and it fits me, mostly

The way the Terminator squads work in the editor seem over complicated and code intensive
Also doesn't seem to take full advantage of shared entries imo
