Comfortable that the T'au Empire catalogue is done. Please feel free to tear the PR apart and tell me where my formatting and conventions are awful. It's my first attempt at it outside of making datafiles for SWA before official ones were released.

Gak! I hate mechanics where you've got to explain the rules to your opponent, and wait on them before you can do something. Cult Ambush isn't as bad as the minigame you have to play every time you shoot a bubblechucka, but it's still annoying.

May 31 2017 04:11 UTC
I just noticed a subtle thing. we've been assuming points costs are the same for all wargear from army to army. Apparently not, because GSC Autocannons cost less than Chaos Autocannons.

some wargear is different in between units, like some tyranid guns
cartag
@cartag
May 31 2017 04:14 UTC
all their points are off... that's weird, they are the same for SM and CSM
Troy Graber
@tag8833
May 31 2017 04:14 UTC
Yeah, I'm not finding CSM points right now, maybe it was KDK, but whatever it was, I'm pretty sure the AC cost 25 points, and GSC costs 15.
GSC bolt pistol is 1 point which is different from marines.
Daniel Mudd
@btjmp
May 31 2017 04:16 UTC
GSC flamers are 7 points, Tau and SM/CSM have flamers at 9 iirc.
cartag
@cartag
May 31 2017 04:16 UTC
20 for AC
GSC is off on all of theirs it looks like... hmmm
Daniel Mudd
@btjmp
May 31 2017 04:18 UTC
Sounds very GSC
Troy Graber
@tag8833
May 31 2017 04:18 UTC
That is interesting that its been the same on other stuff so far. I wonder how close GSC is to IG.
Troy Graber
@tag8833
May 31 2017 04:23 UTC
GSC's Genestealers are at least 150% as expensive as Tyranid ones. Weird.
Daniel Mudd
@btjmp
May 31 2017 04:49 UTC
GSC are just a tad goofy overall when it comes to points, it seems.
Adam Vollrath
@axisofentropy
May 31 2017 04:55 UTC
GSC's genestealers get Cult Ambush which is probably worth 50%!

@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 08:20 UTC
Since all knights have the same profile with different names (Knight Crusader, Knight Paladin, ...) should I create just one profile and change its name using modifiers or is it better if I create a different profile and wound tracker for each one (just to be safe in the unlikely case only some of them get modified)?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
May 31 2017 08:24 UTC
I think different profiles, more like because modifiers are not very change-supportive and also because it's simpler when there are less modifiers.
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 08:27 UTC
Ok, on with the copypaste then!
Another question, with the way Battlescribe handles catalogs is it necessary to put all Imperium stuff in the same file?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
May 31 2017 08:30 UTC
IDK. I assume it'd be safer to put them in one cat for now, and if turns out unnecessary - copy the cats and remove different stuff from each.
I have no idea if you can understand what I meant, I have hard time myself :D
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 08:32 UTC
Haha yeah, I can understand it!
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 08:36 UTC
did we already come up with a way to more easily validate the increments in unit sizes?
Like befire it was +1 model for everything whereas now it goes in steps of e.g. +3
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
May 31 2017 08:38 UTC
Um... but we don't do catalogues with Power Points, do we?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 08:38 UTC
Dunno, the leaks on AdMech goes in steps of 3.. but yes, that is in PP
arent we supporting that?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
May 31 2017 08:39 UTC
Are we? If so, how do you suggest?
I have not used the new gst, are the PPs there as new cost type?
I mean, I think that these model steps you're talking about apply only to calculating PPs. Where you have Points table, the unit size says e.g. 3-9 and I feel you can take 5 if you want to.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 08:42 UTC
exactly. I guess I'll ignore that for now in the first drafts.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
May 31 2017 08:43 UTC
Yeah, supporting PPs at the same time would be kind of a pain. And also I think that PPs are so simple that BS is not that useful for them.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 09:10 UTC
by PP do you mean power levels?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
May 31 2017 09:16 UTC
yeah I thought it was Power Points which it obviously isn't.
ohh it's Power Rating

Nope. Think you won't see any until the codices start appearing.
Indices are just a stop-gap, to get everyone started at the same time.
Nice, just heard Harlequin Troupemasters have become HQ units.
Owlsbane

May 31 2017 09:43 UTC
Someone just leaked all rules... but his dropbox is not accesible atm because he surpassed his limit for today. Expect others to host this stuff soon!

as in epubs?
that would be dope

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 09:45 UTC
just looking at the Wraithknight sheet, in Melee you can only choose one weapon to make all your attacks with right??
because in that case, Titanic feet are nasty
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 09:45 UTC
you can choose which weapon you use for each attack
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 09:46 UTC
oh I see...
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 09:46 UTC
so a captain with a fist and a sword could do 4 attacks with the sword and 2 with the fist, for example
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 09:47 UTC
so if you did decide just to attack with your feet, the wraithknight has 4 attacks, times 3 dice, equals 12 rolls to hit
at strength 8 and AP -2
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 09:47 UTC
sounds about right
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 09:47 UTC
each one doing D3 damage
Suncannon is also brutal, although, pretty variable output
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 09:54 UTC
How do you guys recommend starting an 8th Ed CAT?? i.e. start from scratch, or copy and paste from the previous one and then remove/change things as required?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 09:54 UTC
i would go from scratch
flush out all the old ways, make sure everything is exactly on point
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90

I'm starting from scratch, just let me check it's all ok and my draft of Imperium Index will be online :)

Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 10:09 UTC
Done, the file is Imperial Index.cat, you can find it in branch 40k8eprep
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 10:13 UTC
that's just the knights, yes?
are we going to just have a CAT per index to begin with? or a CAT per faction per the previous Repo?
will the imperium CAT be too big??
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 10:31 UTC
I think we can put them in a single CAT for now, splitting them later when the codexes are released
Oh and by the way I think we should remove all previous edition cats... Leaving only the new GST and the files for the new edition
All those files are useless anyway
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 10:34 UTC
yeah, i was thinking the same
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 10:35 UTC
My laptop would be very happy if I could free some space
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 10:37 UTC
haha, i dont think 50 MB of cats will make much difference there ;)
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 10:38 UTC
It's actually more than 300 MB :) Not much, but I have less than 1 GB free in my /home partition :P
Simon Porter

It would be good to delete the rubbish data
Well, rubbish for 8th Ed anyway!
Francesco Venturoli

Warhammer40k.gst
Chaos Index.cat
Imperium Index.cat

May 31 2017 10:48 UTC
Someone has been working on Tau haven't they...?

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 11:01 UTC
Time to divvy up the work then, if we only have 5 Cats, only 5 people can work at the same time...
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:01 UTC
We can have more than 5 Cats I think
Not all races in the Xenos books have to be together
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 11:02 UTC
orks, necrons and tau will be individual for sure
nids and gsc have some overlap, not sure atm
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:02 UTC

We can try dividing it this way:

Imperium + Mech
Chaos
Aeldari
Tyr + Genestealer Cults
Orks
Tau
Necron

Missing something?

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 11:02 UTC
and eldar remains to be seen
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:03 UTC
All Eldar have the Aeldari keyword, so it makes sense having them together
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 11:03 UTC
oh, if thats the case then yeah
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
May 31 2017 11:05 UTC

Will Pattison

alright, im gonna start on a tyranids cat
with gsc
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:18 UTC
If you checkout 40k8eprep you have a fresh start, there are only 8th edition files
Jon Kissinger

Wish you hadn't done that but guess it's not a big deal
Wraithknight is basically an imp knight
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis

Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:21 UTC
They are available in the master branch anyway, only 40k8eprep doesn't have them
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 11:22 UTC
True - just means a few extra steps
I'm not throwing a fit – I was just stating I wish you hadn't done that
Anyway, looks like the SHW/GMCs are now roughly equal
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:24 UTC
Sorry, I thought the general consensus was to start from scratch... I promise I'll wait next time!
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 11:25 UTC
I have no argument with deleting the FW cats right away - none of them will be updated right away so they're effectively dead
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:26 UTC
Anyway, I'm not gonna add anything to the Imperium Index for some hours, so if anyone wants to do something, feel free!

Yeah uh I thought we were still doing separate cats for factions
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:28 UTC
I don't know which one is the better way honestly... With separate cats we'd have smaller files but I'm not sure if things would work correctly
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 11:28 UTC
Since everything is going to be split into codices eventually anyway I assumed we were going with separate factions
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 11:29 UTC
everything would be castellans that way - multiple forces per detachment
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 11:29 UTC
yeah but I dont want my admech list to be clogged up with sisters and AM units
so many units I will NEVER use..
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 11:30 UTC
yeah, that list of unit would be unwieldy to say the least
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:30 UTC
I have no issues with separate catalogs, we'll just have to implement them like Castellans
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 11:31 UTC
which we can and should do via categories
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:32 UTC
Let's keep them separate then :) I'll rename my file "Questor Imperialis"
Where should we define categories then?
I'm thinking faction keywords in the GST and other keywords in the specific catalogs, but i'm not sure
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 11:36 UTC
specific in cat in any case
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90

cartag

Oh, and how are we going to handle "placeholder" keywords like <CHAPTER> and <LEGION>? For now I have simply put <Household> in the file until we decide what to do
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 11:43 UTC
That's the exact way really
Until we have rules in a codex that give bonuses based on certain ones

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

@cartag the faction ones aren't in the GST
we're talking about the faction keyword <Sept> or <Chapter>

nope, only the turret weapon options are different

@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 11:49 UTC
Huh, odd
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 11:50 UTC
i guess its just so you cant have mixed squadrons?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 11:50 UTC
Makes sense- previously it was literally just the rear armour that was different
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 11:51 UTC
Yea that could be.
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 11:51 UTC

Until we have rules in a codex that give bonuses based on certain ones

We already have them in a way... For instance, Cawl has the Mars keyword and buffs only the units with the same keywords (so if I chose <Forge World> = Metalica it shouldn't work)... Other ones use it for listbuilding (Dark Angels can substitute <Chapter> with Dark Angels but only for some specific units)... Maybe the best way would be a new entry to add at the beginning of the roster? Like the Chaos Legion in 7th CSM or the Legion in Horus Heresy

its age of sigmar - sci-fi edition
i've played AOS, it's boring
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:11 UTC
Yep, that's why I like it. But I'm a huge proponent of AOS
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:11 UTC
i assume that was their intention
to target the aos crowd
cartag
@cartag
May 31 2017 12:12 UTC
Can I ask what you found so boring with it?
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:12 UTC
i liked the complexity of 40l
40k
same for the people in the group i play with
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:12 UTC
Complexity can be nice, but 40k was just too much.
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:13 UTC
for some
for others it was fine
cartag
@cartag
May 31 2017 12:13 UTC
And how does 40k being complex make AoS boring?
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:13 UTC
i would have made changes too it dont get me wrong
not sure what you want me to say cartag
my group. all of us, found aos boring
its that simple
given the choice of 7th ed 40k and the current aos, we would all play 40k
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:14 UTC
I think he's saying the simplicity is boring. Lack of complexity to them means lack of uniqueness/everything is the same
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:14 UTC
we just found 40k more interesting to play
i would have removed a bunch of peripheral rules that didn't add much to the game play, thats how i would have simplified it
but in a game where people already complained about winning or losing based on the randomness of dice throws, i don't understand why people are happy about how much d3 and d6 and 2d6 etc they have added in
apparently people didnt like D weapons, so they removed them... and then added Mortal wounds, which are like... D weapons
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:16 UTC
? No they aren't ...
D was an imperfect solution to the box GW cornered themselves in with GMC/SHV
And then those super powerful weapons were given en masse to an entire army
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:17 UTC
d weapons, wounds with no possible way of saving it
mortal wound is the same thing
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:17 UTC
  1. vs 6+D6!
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:17 UTC
d weapon wounds did't spill over to other models
mortal wounds do
imo they are worse than D
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:19 UTC
Eh, not for me. Rending system is leagues better than AP. Multiple Damage on weapons is a great change to represent their power. Power Levels for Narrative is a great thing for the game for incoming players
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:20 UTC
till you keep rolling 1's
cartag
@cartag
May 31 2017 12:21 UTC
And if you were rolling ones you wouldn't accomplish shit on either system
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:21 UTC
So we're back to complaining about randomness in a game about dice rolls. Nothing about that has changed.
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:21 UTC
in 7th you can mitigate a lot of that randomness when it comes to templates
higher BS, rerolling scatter etc
now it's ALL dice rolls and nothing else

it was
modified by BS
and if you had the rules for it, could be rerolled
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:23 UTC
arguably AoS is far more tactically rewarding then 40k has been for years
there's more nuance in AoS - the simplicity is what MAKES aos better.
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:24 UTC
or for some, makes it boring

Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

Faster too ... I've done similarly pointed games of sigmar in an hour less than 40k
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:25 UTC
the only reason they want faster games is so people play more points an buy more models
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:25 UTC
Yea, GW was never going to please everyone with this

G has said standard points is 1500
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:25 UTC
people will play for the duration if the time they have at hand
if the game ends quicker, they will just up the point count
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:25 UTC
The reason they want faster games is because player groups have vocalized the need for less than 3 hour slogs at 1850
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:26 UTC
also, there are things that negate mortal
^this.
I have yet to come across a group that says they're happy with how long 40k takes.

Jon Kissinger

you're deluding yourself if you think G isn't listening to the masses
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:27 UTC
I guess i'm deluded for thinking GW also has started to care about the community and it's vocalizations.
Troy Graber
@tag8833
May 31 2017 12:27 UTC
Sigmar didn't sell them models at 1st. They did that because they had a vision of a game they want to make. It didn't work so hot, disrupting model sales, so they had to quickly redo it.

? Do you now know about 9th age?
Sigmar was decried as TERRIBLE AND HORRIBLE AND WOE IS ME. People quit, or kept playing 8th. or even got behind a fanset ccalled 9th age. Then GHB came out with points and sigmar is as strong as ever.

the refund announcement came days after

True. That wasn't handled gracefully.
WW shouldn't have been selling codexes

So, powergamers.
James
@skonk

all of the time GW knew, in some cases just 1 or 2 months later, all of it would be junk
so someone who buys a new book is a power gamer?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:36 UTC
I have zero sympathy for people who were rushing to buy the new hotness as soon as net lists drop or abused formations.
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:36 UTC
gathering storm added new stuff, people bought the books and bought models to use the new rules
all of which now is useless
Earl Bishop

May 31 2017 12:36 UTC
Someone buying multiple kits solely to use formations.
Jon Kissinger

i really don't get that
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:37 UTC
Of course GW knew. What did you want them to do, stop selling EVERYTHING once they knew a new ed was coming?
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:37 UTC
GW make a formation, may be a good one, or a shit one but either way it requires a min of lets say 3 units of something
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:37 UTC
All models are still "arguably" valid.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:37 UTC
because gw even said that wasn't how the game was supposed to be played.
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:37 UTC
so someone buys 3 packs of models to use it, no idea if its good or not, just to try it cos thats how many models it needs
and you think they're in the wrong for doing that?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:38 UTC
The books still have value to some for lore/art. And honestly, c'mon. We run Battlescribe. The points and rules is not the sole reason for buying those Codexes.
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:38 UTC
its the main reason
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:38 UTC
if you're in an area where you can't playlets before buying, that's also an issue.
my local playtest*
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:38 UTC
the reality is most people buy the books for the rules
the fluff is a nice aside but very few buy em just for the fluff
and if they did it would be a damn expensive book for little bit of story when you can just a full novel with way more content for a 4th of the cost
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:39 UTC
this general area is huge in play testing stuff - you're expected to have the models for tourneys is expected, but not the end all be alls
and if you wanted to try out some new formation, you used what you had and proxied to try it.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:40 UTC
same for mine ... if your enjoyment of the game is so ruined because i'm testing a new unit, then I'm better off having not played that person.
James
@skonk
May 31 2017 12:43 UTC
listening to you both has really just solidified my opinion that i dont like the new rules
nor would i like to play with people with your attitudes
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:44 UTC
there was literally zero reason to drop money on units for a formation if you didn't know what it did. you bought want you wanted, and most people understood that outside of tourneys, playing powerful beat stick super-units was not how you're supposed to play 40k.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 12:45 UTC
Sorry to hear that. As I said, you can't please everyone. If your local group does decide to stay on 7th. know that the 7th ed repo will be kept (though not maintained) for people to download and use.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 12:46 UTC
that's fine - to each their own; however that's always been the sort of attitude that Gw has encouraged with how to play 40k
Thats the best quality we're gonna get boys.

Simon Porter

Guys, I'm seeing disappointments with some of the factions in here, just remember that the indices are simply to get you through the night until your codex drops. This is the bare minimum GW needed to do to make the game playable for everyone from the get go, that's all it is.

So with the way we have it set up now, how would I do a Brigade of SM, AM, and DA?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 13:58 UTC
prototype AM is up
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 13:58 UTC
I can't do 3 Brigade detachments.
That wouldn't validate right.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 13:59 UTC
yes but just imagine being lets say a Sisters player
now you have to sift through 2 dozen of troops that you neither want nor can use because those are not your army
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 13:59 UTC
I understand the downside.
But, we currently might as well not even validate number of choices.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 13:59 UTC
everything is Cadia, yes.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 13:59 UTC
Exactly.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 13:59 UTC
that's why those categories need to happen
Troy Graber
@tag8833
May 31 2017 13:59 UTC
I'm going to start Orks. Because the only Faction keywords are "Ork" and "<Clan>" I'm putting it in its own CAT uncontroversial, right?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 13:59 UTC
Yep, so i'm saying we should change the GST now to sort that out
Correct Tag.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 14:00 UTC
and if you bandaid that now you'll have to do it that way later anyway PLUS have do pick apart the cats
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:00 UTC
Imperium is the fucker here.
Cartag already has chaos in one.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 14:00 UTC
just fyi, AM is literally stripped down am, nothing else.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:00 UTC
Ok, then we should fix GST now so that it works with cross cat validation.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 14:00 UTC
I stripped out Fw and formations, and uploaded
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 14:01 UTC
chaos makes kind of sense in itself
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 31 2017 14:01 UTC
Otherwise, can't we have show/hides the same as with forge world before?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:01 UTC
Show/Hide would be one option.
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 14:01 UTC
Don't AoS datafile work the same way?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:02 UTC
AOS datafiles are Grand Alliance.
Not faction.
aren't they?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 14:02 UTC
correct
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 14:02 UTC
What's the difference between Grand Alliance: Order and Faction: Imperium?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 14:02 UTC
size.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:02 UTC
So I see two options: Imperium in one Cat with show/hide factions. Or we fix GST to validate cross cat in a single detachment.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 14:03 UTC
the later without a doubt. More elegant, easier to maintain
and more future proof
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 14:03 UTC
If size is the problem then we'll have to keep them separate then
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 14:03 UTC
so shall we do the role call?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:03 UTC
Agreed. I'd prefer that, which is why I'm saying we should not move forward with much more imperium implementation until we fix that.
Xenos races are no issue since they're all separate.
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 14:04 UTC
Yeah, if those are the reasons I agree too
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:04 UTC
Might as well.
Those 7 albums are the entirety of rules/index.
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 14:04 UTC
But I still think there may be a little problem
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:05 UTC
I'm writing up the post now. Gonna edit the Cat Keepers page.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas

Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 14:05 UTC
What if I want two Brigade Detachments? Would battlescribe be able to handle them?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 14:06 UTC
Depends on your device
mobiles are the crux
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 14:07 UTC
I see... I'm mainly interested in desktop versions though
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 31 2017 14:08 UTC
I'll take AS, AAT, AC, AI, A, AM, BA, I, LoTD, MT, SoS
I don't want GK anymore lol
while I understand what you mean @Crowbar90 we have to always keep mobile in mind.
especially them android assholes lol
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
May 31 2017 14:09 UTC
so.. aw, I think I'm too drained to be able to think right now...
Fixing the GST would require to validate based on categories.
We assign thsoe categories as Force Org Slots.
Now how would I personally go and do a patrol detachment over multiple cats... ....ngggggh....
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 14:09 UTC

@/all Hello 40k maintainers. We now have the entirety of the indexes leaked. We will be starting our 8th prep in earnest. Though I imagine this call won't bring many more people than have been here already, i'm still calling it out. Please raise your hand if you wish to help in the prep. For initial releases, we're going to be dividing up the factions so that one author is working on those particular files. After release, we will go back to collaborative creation, but for the initial - we only want one person working in the file. Below are the current "Claims":

@Thairne - Admech, IK, DA
@alphalas - AS, AAT, AC, AI, A, AM, I, LoTD, MT, SoS
@kohato - Necrons, SM
@bitjump - Tau
@tag8833 - Orks

Please let us know what cat you will be working on. I will be marking all of it down here: https://github.com/BSData/wh40k/wiki/Catalogue-Keepers

Jon Kissinger

Ok, https://github.com/BSData/wh40k/wiki/Catalogue-Keepers should be set. Crowbar, feel free to add your name to a blank one if you start implementing. I'll leave it blank for now since you wanted to do nids/GSC first before picking up the others.

I'm not sure index IA will even have spereate factions anymore.

Ok @Kohato, good choice. When I'm done with the first ones I'll check if the wolves are still free

Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90

So can we start entering data soon or should we wait until GST has been modified?
Earl Bishop

Eldar are Aeldari with <Craftworld> keyword
I'm thinkin so Flak.

Aeldari should be one cat. Won't be any bigger than SM tbh.

That's not to discourage you from hanging out and contributing, we're trying to keep the initial commits to 1 person per cat so there's no conflicts in the initial uploads.
after that, it's back to collaborative development.

Harlequins
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 15:11 UTC
Oh, that make ssense.
So here's the thing about them.
It seems like all Aeldari have been combined to Aeldari.
for the faction keyword.
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares
May 31 2017 15:12 UTC
There's no problem in mergin' multiple files
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 15:12 UTC
So if you do those, make a cat file called "Aeldari" instead of harlequins
and just add the harles there.
Some there is. We don't want to create an Imperium catalog ...
Aeldari we think can safely be made in one cat file.
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares
May 31 2017 15:13 UTC
isn't it better to create separate eldar catalogues and then merge them?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 15:13 UTC
Not sure what you mean by merge.
There's no tool to merge them together, it's all copy/paste by hand.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 15:14 UTC
i think he means work on the sub-factions in separate cats, then combine them into one
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares

As you should know, catalogues are plain .xml

If we could talk @Jonskichov into giving meaningful default names to links (i. E. copy of the title of the linked item) the XML would be meaningfully hand editable

are we not tracking power levels in this?

@capitaladot

cool, ill update the gst
flakpanda
@flakpanda
May 31 2017 15:25 UTC
there will just be some conditionals for units that gain power levels for more models.
ie the second set of 5 is +x PL
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 15:25 UTC
That's fairly easy to do as long as the 2nd set is divisible by model count.
Example. Unit of 5 is 12 PL and 5 more is 10 PL. Unit cost would be 2 PL, and each individual entry in the unit is 2 PL each.
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares
May 31 2017 15:27 UTC
Unfortunately, no, 'casue 7 PL would cost 22, like 10 PL
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 15:28 UTC
increment by 10 for each 5 selections in unit
i think is what he meant

no, I don't know where that comes from
I can fix it myself, but since @GenWilhelm is already editing I though it might be faster
Additionally, Astra Militarum catalog is not working, but it's probably since it still references the old game system
It doesn't cause any issue anyway, unlike the duplicate in the GST which prevents the creation of other catalogs

40pts without wargear.
nvm, 9pts for their weapons. So 17 per, which I think matches what they are now actually.
Daniel Mudd
@btjmp
May 31 2017 17:10 UTC
Yeah, 17 points for 24" Rapid Fire 1 S5 AP-2
With the reanimation protocols durability

the keyword interacts with other abilities. Like haywire blasters do more damage against units with Vehicle keyword, Poison does less.
the only keywords in the core rules are Character and Fly.

shooting rules only say "check if it's visible". I can imagine tournament organizers stipulating line of sight from the eyes or barrel, as some have in the past.

@Crowbar90 I'm only seeing one lightning claw entry in the gst

Yes, with cost 0 pts and a modifier which sets cost to 6.5pts if two are equipped
the base cost should be 9

Hey everyone, you might have seen some comments of mine here and there on issues. I would like to help out with creating the Space Wolves and other catalogs if they haven't been created already. I've got some fairly extensive Data Editor experience as I have created a couple catalogs for personal use. Let me know if there is any way I can contribute!

Should inv save be presented in profile?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 17:37 UTC
thats your choice, i think most people do
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 17:38 UTC
Hmm... I've come across some weapons that are available in the GST, but with the older profile. Should I link to that profile and change it later or create a new one?
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares
May 31 2017 17:38 UTC
Should all rules and profiles be shared, or unique ones could be in-place?
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 17:39 UTC
I think we all agree on shared, but I wanna make sure

I'm really glad it can, after having written all of the T'au weapon profiles then realising I couldn't save that datafile because I wasn't using the alpha
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 17:42 UTC
Hey @Gnofry, we've got a list of catalogues with people assigned to them here: https://github.com/BSData/wh40k/wiki/Catalogue-Keepers - I think SW are already spoken for by @penguin20000. There's craftworld, drukhari and ynnari not assigned yet, or if you ask somebody who has multiple (like @alphalas) I'm sure you can take something off them.
Gnofry
@Gnofry
May 31 2017 17:43 UTC
I would be glad to help with that faction. Is it decided that aeldari will be one catalog, or is that just how it is assigned?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 17:43 UTC
@Crowbar90 if its a 7th ed profile then update it.
Francesco Venturoli
@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 17:44 UTC
Ok :) I'll finish these links then I'll update them
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares
May 31 2017 17:44 UTC
By now, I've created branch for all aeldari codices, I'm working on harlequins now
(unpushed yet)
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 17:45 UTC
@USSX-Hares again, its up to the data author. I prefer to have unique wargear and rules under the model they belong to, but its whatever your preference is
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares

Can I get push access for a branch 40k8eprep_eldar?

You could fork then submit a PR.
As an alternative, anyway.
Peter Zaitcev / [USSX] Hares
@USSX-Hares
May 31 2017 17:53 UTC
I've already forked
However, if anybody other wants to use this branch, it should be created on origin
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 17:53 UTC
you'll need to get @amis92 to join you to the repo in order to get push access, until then you can submit a pull request and have one of us merge it

@Crowbar90
May 31 2017 17:56 UTC
I'm updating weapon profiles in the GST... Since we're going to have a lot of Adeptus Astartes catalogs, should I add all Space Marines weapons to the GST? This way all cats would just have to link to it
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
May 31 2017 17:56 UTC
yeah, if you want to do that i'm sure it would help a lot of people

the ID in the error message is the id in the catalogue file. The GameSystemId is correct though

May 31 2017 22:53 UTC
I finished adding all Space Marines Wargear
While I'm at it, I checked how many 7th edition leftovers are used in the new files... They're only a few luckily
I'll remove the unused ones and leave the others in the GST until the links are removed from the other files
Specifically, I'm talking about the rules Poisoned (used once in Astra Militarum file) and Psyker (used once in Orks and once in Chaos)
Francesco Venturoli

So i have a question. how would one do an IMPERIUM army in one detachment in BS if we are still seperating out the factions?
cartag
@cartag
May 31 2017 23:17 UTC
To our new people, don't worry about Chaos. I typically work on big sweeping changes on the back end that don't get synced right away because they're not ready for prime time yet. A good number off them end up being common practice for other files. I respectively ask you leave them alone, not that anybody has done anything wrong, just a preemptive request :)
I don't know if we can from one detachment with separate cats
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 31 2017 23:18 UTC
Cartag is probably a bit excited for chaos in 40k now :p
flakpanda
@flakpanda
May 31 2017 23:18 UTC
i know, its the AoS problem
thats why there are only 4 cats
i couldnt imagine how monsterous an Imperium catalog would be
Daniel Mudd
@btjmp
May 31 2017 23:19 UTC
We'd need a catalogue for the highest-level shared tag of a faction, right? So Imperium, Chaos, Aeldari, then assorted Xenos
flakpanda
@flakpanda
May 31 2017 23:20 UTC
if we plan on accomidating top-level keyword armies
cartag
@cartag
May 31 2017 23:20 UTC
Chaos is being done as one file, with a broad selection like legions were/are in 7th
And yeah @Kohato I am going to actually play!
And tell the WAAC players to go outside and play hide and go Fuck yourselves
flakpanda
@flakpanda
May 31 2017 23:22 UTC
correct, same with imperium, or aeldari. its a top down approach. you select more grainular factions. IE Imperium > Adeptus Astartes > Ultramarines
you just show everything to start
just like how i set up AoS Grand Alliance > Faction > subfaction
so the question now become, is that what we do for imperium?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
May 31 2017 23:34 UTC
