DZC for Battlescribe

PostThu Jul 02, 2015 8:46 pm

I noticed that there isnt a DZC Version for Battlescribe.
I had some spare time so I started working on a Version.
FFoR is good, but it has three Problems:
-No mobile support (Android, iOS)
-Drag and drop
-Filling up a Vehicle Squadron is not very comfortable (right+left click for every vehicle), especially if you dont use Ares walkers...

It should be possible to adept DZC for Battlescribe, however one thing could be a problem: I didnt find a way to set the 33% rule for the battlegroups because there is no direct function for that.
It could be working with the Incremention function but I'm not sure atm (I will check that).

Would there be interest in that project?
And are here people who can work with the Battlecribe Catalogue Editor and have time?

Then one question to Hawk / Simon:
How is the IP Situation with model special Rules? Is it allowed to implement these special rules (like the Ares Scanner Array or Apollos special rules) into Battlescribe or only the book/page reference?

I've tried working on a battlescribe file in the past, I ran into two problems:

1. I couldn't set the 33% (50% in Skirmish) threshold.
2. I didn't find an elegant way to set the limitations on Gates.

In addition, the coding for dropship rules wasn't pretty.

Problem 1: You can limit the max. points of an entry. If you increase the max. point value by 1 for every 3 points in your army (=33 %) that should do the trick.
Problem 2: You can select not more then 1 gate per squad? If there isn't an elegant way, then you have to take the inelegant way ;) I bet there is a solution for that.

This is how the game system looks like:
Battlescribe - Game System - DZC.tiff
Battlescribe - Game System - DZC.tiff (154.36 KiB) Viewed 2569 times


Every Battlegroup is an upgrade entry:
Battlescribe - Catalogue - PHR - Battlepanteon.tiff
Battlescribe - Catalogue - PHR - Battlepanteon.tiff (222.67 KiB) Viewed 2569 times


Dropship limitation works quite nicely, even with the "only take full dropships":
Battlescribe - Catalogue - PHR - Battlepanteon - Neptunes.tiff
Battlescribe - Catalogue - PHR - Battlepanteon - Neptunes.tiff (195.69 KiB) Viewed 2569 times

I was working in an older version, but when I tried setting the % maximum, it was sharing it across all battlegroups of s specific type (ex you have two armor battlegroups, together they couldn't be more than 33%).

Gates have the issue where your total Gate value is limited by total Mass value. It may have been a restriction n the version I was working off of, but I couldn't find a way to test against the restrictions.

Solved the 33% HQ thing but have some diffilculty with the Shaltari Gates.
Especialy after Restructuring the army that I don't need to update everything 3 times by making shared entries.

I shall take an other look at the gate situation.
Resistance is added and finished.
PHR add famous commander effects.
Scourge still need to add famous commanders might also need some restructering of the data file
UCM still need to add famous commanders might also need some restructering of the data file
Shaltari still need to add famous commanders might also need some restructering of the data file

Now that I have my books back the famous commanders can be added
also need to check rare units in all armies except for Resistance

Hope to have a "finished" version ready in a week or 2

So I think I'm finished.
Although I'm just one guy so if you come across a mistake please be as complete as possible like
Army Skirmish/Clash/Battle, Battlegroup S/C/B, Standard, unit name, whats wrong
the more info you give me the better I can check it and remove it.

On the gate thing it creates a profile with all the values. Just select and hover above Gates.
There you can check your gate and mass values.
It should give error messages when you have more gate squads than other squads.

Download it here and check it out
