am I a terrible person for realizing you can put the psytronome of iyanden on a wraithseer?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 03 2017 02:02
quicken + enliven on two webway striking wraithblades units could get interesting

Good point about the psytronome, I didn't give FW units any relics...

Appspot down for anyone else? Wanted to check Eldar but can't update.

doesn't look like it's there.
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Nov 03 2017 10:56
Okay, then I know it isn't just me. I'll just wait 'till it pops back up then.

@Owlsbane #1706 was down at 0200 est this morning so yeah probably still is lol
Owlsbane

Good
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 03 2017 11:20
There are plenty of bugs, tbh, I didn't do a great job with some of the details...
But the major stuff should be OK
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Nov 03 2017 11:22
I'll try and check it out later today, time permitting. Been following the chat so I know what to expect :wink:

/sarcasm
:tongue:
yeah, I think I might have managed to miss updating most of the weapon costs, quite possibly it is related to the way I built the CAT in the first place, which means double trouble and twice as much for me to fix...
and quite a few weapon profiles got missed too...
Oh well, only 16 bugs on the tracker to fix so far
:+1:
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Nov 03 2017 15:12
So, you're saying my lists are going to be even cheaper than they already are with this version of the cat? O_o
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 15:12
thats what it sounds like
Owlsbane
@Owlsbane
Nov 03 2017 15:14
Well, I ain't complaining.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Nov 03 2017 15:17
@alphalas , can you merge the R&H PR I made a few days ago?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 03 2017 15:23
yup, cheaper units almost across the board
you'll need them so you have more bodies to get chewed up by the tyranids
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 15:23
@ilaunchbury sure
@CrusherJoe got a new job for you - has to do with #1712
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Nov 03 2017 15:25
isn't that the discussion we were having the other day? :)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 15:27
It’s what @FarseerVeraenthis @ilaunchbury and I were discussing the other day - abilities/wargear profiles need to be put into SEs so that they still show a name even if profiles are set to none
@ilaunchbury it is
And @CrusherJoe loves fixing things
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe arches an eyebrow
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:15
Soooooo
What exactly does that mean?
Because if that means undoing all the work I did to move rules into actual Rules as per @GenWilhelm request
I think I might cry a little
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:17
means every profile/profile link needs to be put inside an entry with min/max constraints, instead of just linked.
hang on I'll show you want I mean.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:17
....
Oh yeah I'm gonna cry
LOL
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm

the wound tracks and basic profiles don't have to; just abilities/wargear
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:23
@GenWilhelm is was during the release of C:AM, I forget what unit it was, I think it was the Valkyrie platform. You said things needed to be cleaned up and standardized (that's a paraphrase)
Shouldn't Rules be...like...you know... Rules?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 03 2017 16:24
oh yeah, some of the flyers were using rules and others profiles
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:24
Exactly :)
I mean there's a whole section of the data file devoted to just Rules
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:24
yeah all you need to do is put links in containers now.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 03 2017 16:24
the problem with rules is they only display at the end of the roster, so you constantly have to reference what rule does what
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:25
That...seems like that should be where the Rules that are actually Rules go
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:25
yes Joe, we've been over this Joe :P
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:25
I mean if not then we should stop calling that section "Rules" LOL
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 03 2017 16:25
it was designed for USRs
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:25
@GenWilhelm that
its a holdover from old edition that we don't use.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:26
Maybe call it "Useless Shit That Goes at the Bottom of your Printout"
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:26
....
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:26
That way no one reading the data file will be tempted to put things like...you know... Rules in it :)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:27
this is why we tell new people to talk to us here before they even touch the files\
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe is a bit of a stickler for using the right words
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:27
there's a method to our madness
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:27
Well yes
I'll admit that's my fault, I took @GenWilhelm 's request and kinda ran with it
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:28
also, we do still use rules for stupid army wide rules.
like canticles
because admech is dumb :P
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:28
Okay then we should change it to be called "Army Wide Rules, but Otherwise Useless, Don't Put Anything Here"
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:28
but that is the exception to the rule ;)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 03 2017 16:28
its still useful for things like atsknf , but it was not designed to handle datasheets well
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:29
Right on, right on
I'm just being obstinate -- apologies
@alphalas we can tag team it this weekend if you want
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:29

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:30
Oh, I'm aware
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:30

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:30
Right on
It'll give me something to do while paint dries then
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Nov 03 2017 16:31

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 03 2017 16:32
I think that's a normal reaction to me sometimes
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR

I'm a systems/network admin
I like things logical -- but I'm also used to there being little logic involved in things. Imposing order on chaos is actually one of me job descriptions I think
