Describe the bug
In the character viewer, thrown weapons are listed in the blank location list of the ranged weapon block despite them being in a specific location in the gear tab.

Looking in the saved XML file the Location tag of a thrown weapon in the weapon node is blank even though the Location in the corresponding gear node is present. .

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Go to 'Street Gear' under gear drag a thrown weapon to a location
  2. Click on 'Print' button
  3. Scroll down to 'Ranged Weapons' block
  4. See thrown weapon is in top (blank) location not under the named location

Expected behavior
Thrown weapons are shown under the appropriate location area of the ranged weapons.

Gear tab showing grenades in a location
gear tab

Character viewer showing grenades in blank location

Saved XML file showing gear

Saved XML file showing weapon with blank location

Broadly, this is because they're separate objects. Weapon Locations aren't the same as Gear Locations, etc. I've seen people use them in different ways as well, with people grouping knives and such as Melee, or as an actual location. I'm tempted to consider this working as intended.

I use Location to separate the gear belonging to different SINs. Certain weapons require a license. So in order for one identity to carry certain weapons, a certain license is required. I want to be able to list the weapons by SIN to be able to keep track of what each ID can use.

Besides which the Location field is present in the XML just always. What's the point of having it if it is not used - actually that applies to a lot of fields.
