[Bug] "MODIFIER_PROPERTY_ABILITY_LAYOUT" "6" doesn't override old value

  • [Bug] "MODIFIER_PROPERTY_ABILITY_LAYOUT" "6" doesn't override old value

    Adding a single ability with "Properties" { "MODIFIER_PROPERTY_ABILITY_LAYOUT" "5" } or even "Properties" { "MODIFIER_PROPERTY_ABILITY_LAYOUT" "6" } to a hero will properly update their Ability Layout, and this was a really great addition.

    However I noticed one issue with it, if you add a second ability with this layout property, it won't override the old value, meaning if you want to have 2 "tiers" it would require duplicating the first ability to set a _LAYOUT 6 and leave and empty space. After adding a _LAYOUT 6 to a hero with an skill under _LAYOUT 5, this was the result:

    As a possible fix for this, I would like to see the "higher" value overriding the old one, or even just changing MODIFIER_PROPERTY_ABILITY_LAYOUT to accept "1" as "Add 1 extra slot with this ability if it's possible", instead of the current "Set this ability layout to this integer".

    Thank you for all the constant work you are doing with custom games it's really exciting to have constant quality updates.
