Another quick update. Nothing too major, and definitely nothing that's even visible to the end-user. But definitely a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff in getting ready for custom equipment. Details are as follows:
Added additional customizable restrictions. These restrictions are things that will allow the end-user the ability to define and shape construction rules for any custom equipment they may create. This batch of restrictions includes the following:
Restrict the index into a location the equipment may be placed (e.g., Lower Arm Actuator must always be placed in the 3rd slot)
Restrict how many of the given equipment can be placed within a location (e.g., Only one AES can be placed in a location)
Restrict the ability to select a piece of equipment if the unit uses the specified Technology Bases
Restrict the ability to select a piece of equipment if the unit is over, under, etc. a set tonnage
Restrict the ability to select a piece of equipment if the unit uses the specified Chassis'
Update the Cockpit selection so it is now a dynamically generated list. Previously I had these hard-coded, but they now show any equipment listed as a 'Cockpit' type, provided the restrictions are satisfied. Again, this is geared with an eye towards the ability to create custom cockpits.
