@Crowbar90 and @alphalas is the crozius arcanum not a power weapon then...? I believe it is a power maul, hence, possible to swap for a storm shield...

on what model?

Interrogator chaplain, for dark Angels, ref. #3660

looks at book
there is no option for him to take a storm shield
also crozius arcanum =/= power maul. yes same profile, but differant names.
hence different wargear

That's fair enough, and correct RAW the person who posted the bug rep seemed to indicate it was available previously and I wasn't sure if there had been a different decision before :smile:
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 12 2017 07:22
it was. I added a RAI warning that a Crozius is NOT technically a power weapon, but later then got switched around because the rules are pretty clear on it.
the stupid in issues is strong today it seems... one cant find the TDA button on IOS, duplicates the issue and another one can't read the codex...

Check #3666 someone really wants to equip their interrogator chaplain with a storm shield...

he's triggering my stubborn gene seed.
its the plasma haemeothrope reactor thing again
what is a plasma weapon? As defined by the BRB. What is a power weapon? As defined by the BRB.

Apr 12 2017 08:25
also, did he call me incompetent?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 12 2017 08:28
Well... It could be read that no-one is competent because it has not been done yet...
So, not directly, no...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 12 2017 08:29
it actually had been done. I killed it though!

You are the master of your own destiny...
Having said that, the options do need a rework, in my opinion...

@Kohato I'm still here, can you explain what was wrong with the issue? @VisionHeavy @GenWilhelm
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 12 2017 09:09

Sorry it was an older issue to do with the SWA advance attributes that I created, there were lots of link issues. I didnt receive the message about those but it looks like you guys got them fixed. I'd still like to help out but would like ot know what issues I caused so I dont do it again in future.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 12 2017 09:11
oh that one. the links from the catalogue to the GST were not pointing to the correct id
not sure what caused it if it all worked on your end
~ David Jobling
@david_jobling_twitter
Apr 12 2017 09:12
Yeah worked at my end
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 12 2017 09:13
did you make any changes to the gst entries after you tested it? even small stuff
~ David Jobling
@david_jobling_twitter
Apr 12 2017 09:13
There are a few things that change Movement it might be easier to make movement a numeric value rather than text so the attribute can be updated automatically for users
I might have hmmm I will be more careful with that in future, thanks

@david_jobling_twitter
Apr 12 2017 09:29
I think I should stick to raising issues / suggestions :D
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 12 2017 09:52
What options and why?
I don'T see myself reworking those however unless Jon gets the default selection via modifier thing going. Then - yes, resdesigning ONE thing and then working of that is good. However otherwise I'd have to redo every single IC...
Will Pattison

@david_jobling_twitter what's the deal with ork clans? does it only change the skills they have access to, or does it change wargear options too?
~ David Jobling
@david_jobling_twitter
Apr 12 2017 10:03
@Thairne an example is Adrenal Glands for tyranids it provides +1 movement. you can also get +1 movement from the attribute changes. I will read through the other rules to see if there are other instances where a force can upgrade their movement outside of the attribute upgrades, otherwise its specific to tyranids
@GenWilhelm Ork clans only changes the skills they have access to not wargear

Do you have access to the skill trees?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 12 2017 10:08
yeah, the skills are all in the GST and the chart for the clans is in the main rule book. I was asking because we got a report about evil sunz not being able to take telescopic sights.
or red-dot sights
~ David Jobling
@david_jobling_twitter
Apr 12 2017 10:09
they can take red-dot sights but cannot take the telescopic as far as I can see
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 12 2017 10:09
yeah, i think theyre just not looking in the right place

If someone competent in the modification of these files could submit that, it'd be great.

Someone else do because I don't want to learn how.

you'd think that after 4 years maintaining my catalogue I know my shit... well most of the time. Also, if that guy would fuck around in MY files I'd decapitate him. With a spoon.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 12 2017 12:16
A power spoon? or is a spoon not a power weapon?

It's cool man - I was just asking cause that was like the 4th boltgun one I had seen and I thought it was updated
And I like it to be just a "you're dumb, update data"
