Battlescribe, the excellent army list builder, has been updated to version 1.14. Among the various bug fixes and new features, this update includes better support for Firestorm Armada.
This release broadens BattleScribe’s support for different game systems – in particular Spartan Games’ Firestorm Armada (as well as their other systems). For data file authors, you can now set up a game systems force types and categories to be “nested”. This means a force type or category can have a “child” force type or category. Selections from the child force type or category can be counted towards the limits of the parent force type or category. This should enable much better data for any game systems that work in this fashion.
Basically, this means that you can now select a patrol, battle or grand fleet, then choose your primary faction along with any alliances, and it’ll all work without needing workarounds. Grab a copy of Battlescribe for your OS, then head over to the Battlescribe Data Files site to grab the Firestorm Armada data files.
