76100 is about to become 76100-f1
to be become analogous to 76100-f2
question now is: is this c01 an assembly of -f1 or -f2?
depending on that, it needs to become
I think that 76100c01 makes sense. That the cannon comes in two forms is a detail that shouldn't get reflected in the name of the assembly. This is an "unnumbered assembly" in one form only. if this assembly came in other forms, -f1 and -f2 prefixes would make sense.
The -f1, -f2, etc suffices are not used to differentiate between shortcuts composed of different parts, that's the role of c01, c02, etc.
The -f1, -f2 suffices are used to represent different arrangements of the part(s) - such as an open/closed container or a compressed/relaxed spring. These suffices may be applied to a part number or a shortcut.
I think that there are some renames to be done here, but let me take a look at the email that Santeri has sent, before commenting further here.
The file re-organistion for the earlier (round bottom) competition cannon has now been done, so that we have:
76100-f1 - cannon assembly with relaxed spring
76100-f2 - cannon assembly with compressed spring
76100c01 - cannon+arrow assembly (compressed spring)
I question the need for 32074c02 (cannon assembly without trigger). If the rationale is to allow users to easily create a version with the trigger pulled back, then I think it would be better to do that as a complete assembly as 76100-f3.
So that we don't lose the information from 'dulcaoin', the newer version comprises 57029 (body) + 57759 (lid) + 61280 (trigger) + 71830 (spring).
In 57796-f1.dat I moved the trigger back to contrast against the contracted version 57796-f2.dat. I would suggest the same here but the assembly has already been official.
"I question the need for 32074c02 (cannon assembly without trigger). If the rationale is to allow users to easily create a version with the trigger pulled back, then I think it would be better to do that as a complete assembly as 76100-f3."
A one-to-one match is needed for LDD to LDraw conversion and LDD has only two parts: the cannon (32074c02) and the trigger (32075).
Granted, LDD only has 57029 variant so it should actually be 57029c01 and 61280, but I guess the question will also arise for the newer variant and why treat the two variants differently?
