[BUGS] Minor UI Bugs/Inconsistencies

Sir_BadgerSir_Badger Posts: 6Registered Users
Good Day! The new unit portraits for legendary lords/heroes look very cool, though I have noticed a couple bugs with them.
-Deathmaster Snikch's lord portrait is not used when selecting him in either campaign, unlike other lords'.
-Malus Darkblade's lord portrait is not used when selecting him in either campaign, unlike other lords'.
-Gor Rok and Tiktaq'to's unit portraits are flipped in campaign selection.
-Thorgrim's lord portrait does not appear as his porthole portrait when going into battle, unlike other lords'.
-Karl Franz's 2D porthole portrait is mirrored from his unit portrait.

Unit classification inconsistencies include:
-"Marauder Champions (Great Weapons)", "Red Crested Skinks", "Cohort of Sotek (RoR)", and Morghur the Shadowgave should be classed as either "Hammer Infantry" or "Mace infantry", not "Great Axe Infantry" and "Axe Infantry"
-"Red Crested Skink Chief" Should be classed to "Halberd Infantry", not "Great Axe Infantry".
-"Peasant Mob" Should be reclassed to "Hammer Infantry" or "Sword Infantry", not "Axe Infantry"
-Khazrak One-eye and "Necrotect" should be classed to "Sword & Whip Infantry" (almost like DE High Beastmaster), not "Sword Infantry" and "Whip Infantry".
- "Orc Big 'Uns", "Nehekhara Warriors", "The Khepra Guard (RoR)", "Usirian's Legion of the Netherworld (RoR)", Lokhir Fellheart and Queek Headtaker should be classed as "Dual Sword Infantry", not "Sword Infantry"
-"Night Goblin Warboss" and Skarsnik should be classed as "Spear Infantry", not "Sword Infantry" and "Halberd Infantry".
-"Alastar the White Lion" Should be classed as "Great Axe Infantry", not "Axe Infantry".
-Throgg Should be classed as "Monstrous Infantry", not "Hammer Infantry".
-"Marauder Hunters (Javelins)" should be reclassed to "Missile Infantry", not "Javelin Infantry" (Keep in line with similar units).
-High Queen Khalida should be reclassed to either "Melee" or "Spear (Staff?) Infantry", not "Sword Infantry".
-Settra the Absolute Legend should be reclassed to "Wizard", not "Halberd Infantry".
-"Forsaken" and "The Daemonspew (RoR)" should be classed as either "Mace" or "Melee Infantry", not "Sword Infantry".
-"Skeleton Horsemen" should be classed as "Shock Cavalry", not "Spear Cavalry".

In regards to cavalry, I believe "Shock Cavalry" is defined as cavalry made to deliver most damage on impact and are not optimal in sustained combat, and thus armed with spear/lance type weapons. "Cavalry" would be functionally opposite, and thus would be armed with swords, axes, or maces. Given these definitions are true, the following unit classifications should be changed:
-Alberic de Bordeleaux (Mounted on a Barded Warhorse), "Mounted Yeomen", "Night Goblin Warboss" (When Mounted on Great Cave Squig), "Goblin Wolf Riders", "Moon Howlers (RoR)", and "Forest Goblin Spider Riders" should be reclassed to "Shock Cavalry", not "Cavalry".
-"Orc Boar Boyz", "Savage Orc Boar Boyz", and "Savage Orc Boar Boy Big 'Uns" should be reclassed to "Cavalry", not "Shock Cavalry".

Other misc bugs include:
-"Sacred Kroxigor" unit lacks an "s" to make it plural, there is more than one entity in the unit.
-"Bloated Corpse" does not cause terror, but this is listed in its unit overview panel.
-"Wood units" such as "Dryads, Ancient Treeman, etc. show a fire resistance of "-25%" when moused over. Should be changed to "Fire Weakness: +25%" to keep in line with regen units and avoid confusion.
-Dark Elf "Master" shield is currently inverted in battle, with the sweep going towards the head, not away
-Skaven "Master Assassin" and "Eshin Sorcerer" fingers are extended, not holding their weapons.
-"Master Necromancer", Helman Ghorst, and Heinrich Kemmler are not undead characters, but they have the "Undead" trait, with "crumbling" and "disintegrating". (Not sure if this is a bug, might be crucial for balance, still strange though).
"Race Attributes" in campaign lord selection is inconsistent, as several factions within the same race have different abilities shown here. Could be renamed to "Faction overview", or something that indicates these attributes do not apply to the whole race.

As an aside, since Kroak (a legendary hero) got a portrait overhaul, it is strange others did not as well. Other heroes/lords that could do with a portrait revamp are:
-The Green Knight
-Henri le Massif
-King Lunn Ironhammer
-Halkenhaf Stonebeard
-Dramar Hammerfist
-Throni Ironbrow
-Boris Todbringer
-Rodrik L'Anguille
-Hertwig van Hal
-Jorek Grimm
-Alastar the White Lion
-Azrik the Maze Keeper
-Kihar the Tormentor
-The Red Duke
-Sarthorael the Everwatcher

If anyone reads this, thanks, and keep up the good work!
