This is because we try to use Catalyst’s and IWM’s official names as the basis for our naming convention.  Catalyst chose to just list the Clan names. 
We have a discussion ongoing about this right now with regards to Mechs with multiple sculpts, but I don’t know what the end result will be, or if there will be changes regarding the CGL sculpts.

Thanks.  Maybe a reminder somewhere for those who go looking for Dragonflies instead of Vipers...  :thumbsup:

Is there any chance we could get the Hikage added as a unit to the Draconis Combine roster?  Even if there are no units in it, having a reference outside of FM:3145 would be helpful.

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

They have scheme info, so they've been added (and to the Unrepresented Units list for those looking to submit).

The logo alignment is likely the same cause as #1 in the list I posted.  It appears to be a defect in the widget that handles template alignment (you have to use a certain layout).  I think we have a workaround, but it will take a while to get it implemented everywhere.  The Factions page was the first to get it.
The change to (hopefully) correct alignment has now been made for all Factions.  Please let me know if you see anything funny.

I'd love to see this. At least the very least, the last few months worth of new additions.


Also, I'm seeing menu problems on the Factions page. The menu on the main page is fine, but the additional icons in the menu buttons on the Factions page aren't showing up in my Duck Duck Go browser. (see attachment)

There is currently no way to sort by date posted other than the latest 8 showing on the front page. 

As to the icons, I managed to get myself to a similar result by rejecting cookies during a test run.  Given that Duck Duck Go's search engine is big on privacy, I wonder if the browser may be blocking something.  I'll see if we can get that looked at down the road.

I love seeing the latest 8.  Anyway we could get that moved up to the latest 16 if we can't get sort by date?

Well, it's working fine today. Don't know that I did anything different.

Not without some considerable aesthetic rearranging.  We're currently busy behind the scenes working on Era and IWM data as well as expanding the number of covered schemes, and that's going to have the focus for a while.

I wasn't sure where to put this, so hopefully the right people will see this: the link to the 5th Ghost Regiment incorrectly sends you to the 1st Ghost's page.

Can the Rasalhague Dominion be added as a separate faction to the Factions page, even if it's just a redirect to the CGB page with a note?, whilst Clan Ghost Bear is the military, Rasalhague Dominion is the faction and all other factions are by Faction and not by the factions military name i.e. it's Federated Suns and not AFFS that's shown, this is mostly for consistency between camospecs, the MUL (that does include the Rasalhague Dominion) and the current universe and timeline.

Also i don't know if it's missing because no canon paint scheme but there's no Polar Galaxy listed for the Rasalhague Dominion.

Some pages display different than others (Chrome for Android).

Clan Ghost Bear is present because it was a faction at the time the original CSO site was in use, and we performed a migration.  We’ve discussed some similar changes for another Clan-turned-nation, so I’ll surface those one.
Note that the MUL has a different approach to organization which doesn’t quite fit what we’re shooting for.

As for the Polar Galaxy, you are probably correct on why it’s not listed,  it I can’t confirm at the moment.

Out of curiosity, is there anyway to indicate which units have miniatures painted for them?  I was going through the Republic of the Sphere faction page, and there are many units listed there, but a great many have no painted minis for them.

I'm afraid not.  We do have an effort on our to-do list to remove Units that have no Minis and they're under one brigade where all the Units have the same paint scheme, but it's down the list.

The site is looking really nice actually! However, just like pixelgeek said, there are some certain problems on the mobile version. I guess it has to be caused by the overlapping elements. I am also working on my new website, and I can tell you that it is really tough to make a good website right now, as all the great web development companies are having some insane prices tags. I am working on my HTML Sitemaps, I hope I am doing everything right, however I have already called for some specialists and hope they would do the job.

Just discovered that there's a page for Fire Horse Galaxy (https://camospecs.com/unit/fire-horse-galaxy/), but there's no link for it on the Clan Hell's Horses faction page (https://camospecs.com/factions/clan-hells-horses/). Instead, if you click the faction link on the former page, it takes you here: https://camospecs.com/listing-cat/clan-hells-horses

Will Clan Wolverine get a gallery like the rest, or are they doomed to a Not-Seen status as well?  ^-^
