@tekton @CrusherJoe Thanks guys. I think I'd caused myself unnecessary confusion by misunderstanding how github's 'search' works within a repository, so I didn't realise how much information was in the army .cat files. I'll check out WarHub.

@Kohato last time I checked you could choose wargear per model, not per unit.. collective makes that rather difficult
maybe i' just stuck in my old, crappy ways...
Amadeusz Sadowski

Apr 23 2018 07:56
@Thairne I think @Kohato suggests making them kind of like T'au Strike/Breacher Team are done (possibly other entries, these are known to me)
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 07:58
I see
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 08:13
Like that?

Indeed, although I think at that point you can unbundle the weapon-pair entries to reduce duplicated text in output
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 08:14
true

@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 09:45
Yup what amis says
It really cut down output size.
Though I’d further suggest name them power sword and taser goad instead of the gun. Don’t think anyone uses them for the flachette blaster :p
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 11:26
I thought about that but I do JUST that :P
and my way is the right way ofc!

anything else that strikes your fancy since I'm at it? Bad UX/List output and the likes?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:26
Hmm, let me pull up a list real quick
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 12:26
oh dont you dare :P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:28
lmao
Nothing really - that was the only thing that was out of place to my eyes. The rest is pretty good
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 12:29
alrighty then!
I didnt build a list in like over half a year, so I might be a bit detached from such things...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:29
Completely off BS topic. I wish the admech datacards came with Canticles cards.
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Apr 23 2018 12:29
if @Kohato 's list of bad UX/List outputs is in itself a bad List, do you need to format the list of bad lists before you can start working on the formating of the things in the list inception bwong
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:30
Haha np - I just ran some yesterday and realized how bloated sicarrans looked compared to the rest so figured I'd ask
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 12:30
that's just standard IT business...
they don'T? Well good thing I print them at the end of the roster...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:30
If I present a list for @Thairne to do. It will look god damned beautiful
Nope, just strats and cards.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 12:31
Sloppy work, GW. if BCB catches wind of that...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:31
I need to design a set and send them off to the printers
Hahah
Gonna do the same with c'tan powers if they don't come with the necron cards too.
But yea, that was it - Admech is purdy otherwise.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 12:32

I don't like red.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:38
Nah, just the necrons.
You like green ja?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 12:39
green like ye olde forests of caliban
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Apr 23 2018 12:39
Necrond DCs come with C'tan powers, BTW. I've got them.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Apr 23 2018 12:39
I'd settle for some bone white too
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 12:39
oh sweet
thanks Amis - mine are still backordered :(
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Apr 23 2018 13:13
Did you order from FLG again?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 13:17
Nah
My local comic shop is fucking lightspeed compared to them
Ordered 2 boxes of Dakkabots on a saturday
they were there by wednesday
I did the necron and admech cards too, admech was there wednesday as well but he said necrons got backordered
Joe Beddoe

Apr 23 2018 15:48
From what I understand you can't buy a Tessaract Vault anywhere
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 23 2018 16:53
Theres one at my local GW i think
I know managers will ship larger boxes like that to each other if they can find them
I'll check when I go in for some paint Wed.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 17:08
email GW too
they can let you know how long for re-stock
Crondex just came out and T-Vault (and the c'tan included) got a large upgrade.
Not suprrising it's sold out now

@GenWilhelm got a bug I'm about to post up for you in regards to tyranids. its from this thread but you might find entertainment in it: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/755434.page#9944350

@GenWilhelm
Apr 23 2018 19:18
i literally just took that out last update because somebody pointed out that its pointless and the UX is much nicer with a checkbox instead of a spinner
yes its technically legal, but there's never a reason to do it
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 23 2018 19:20
well, wysiwyg swarmlord as not the swarmlord strikes me as a significant reason
just like there is pretty much no reason to give an autarch two power swords but the rules allow such and that's the way its set up
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 23 2018 19:22
ah, i found a good reason. there's a relic that replaces one set, so you could gain a benefit form the second set

I hate those stupid double weapon spinners... cos like, I really NEED 2 x Xenophase blades...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 20:07
I can't imagine people honestly bitching about redundant choices.
They just like to read their screen name next to text and think they're important.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 23 2018 20:08
righto...
are you new?? have you met any of the people who report issues??
:tongue:

Hey there, watch your step! It's our responsibility to create as close to 1:1 to datasheet as possible :)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 23 2018 20:09
hehehehe! yeah, I know
tekton
@tekton
Apr 23 2018 20:09
We can still complain :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 23 2018 20:10
did you ever use @WindstormSCR 's mobile repo??
it was horrible on a pc, but it made sense on a phone
well, not horrbile, maybe "less lovely"
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Apr 23 2018 20:11
@tekton that's true ;)
Striking balance would be the best. But we all know how easy finding and implementing it is.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 23 2018 20:13
the desktop version of the mobile repo was ass for complex units
and I'll be the first to admit it
but it worked great on mobile :P
I.... might have vented my spleen a tiny bit on BCB on Dakka
in that thread
guy is a moron
of the worst kind
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Apr 23 2018 20:18
these things happen

@tekton
Apr 23 2018 20:23
Didn't seem that bad...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 23 2018 20:24
perhaps not, but then I try to not earn myself mod warnings there
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Apr 23 2018 22:50
I’d be proud of dakka mod warnings
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Apr 23 2018 22:52
I've got 2 so far :P
I don't plan to collect any more without reason
though I still feel one was justified, considering it was a response to a personal attack in a thread about "only waacs use Designer Commentary Options"
