Confusion about Yaktribe and Equipment

    Hi there,

    I'm new to Necromunda, and I'm quite confused about the Gang Editor. On the Mainpage, there are multiple Options, like this:

    Restrict Equipment Default ON (ON)
    If this setting is ON, YakTribe will only show equipment that is valid for the ganger type you are editing. You may need to turn this OFF for some custom or NPC ganger types.

    Validation Default ON (ON)
    When turned ON, the Validation setting will check your gangers xp and advances to make sure they have enough (or not too many) advances for their level.​

    I'm using the NCE rules, so why could I give my Escher-Leader a Hand-Flamer in example? It shouldn't be possible. I don't see any validation either.

    For the validation, if your ganger should have eg 4 advances, and you've only given them 3, there will be a message under the gangers stats saying something like "this fighter needs one more advance".

    It's a pretty cool feature - it's caught a couple of missed advances for me in the past.

    Well ok, I guess validation does what it should do, but Restrict Equipment still seems broken for me.

    The restrict stops you adding... heavy weapons to your leader, or special weapons to your ganger. It only controls catagory unlocks not HWL restrictions.

    Hope that makes sense.

    As @spafe said - I guess because the Leader can take a hand flamer (assuming you acquire one, giving up a rare trade roll) but can't take a heavy stubber under any circumstances.
