Default Minor bug with Languages and Cultural Familiarities

They are both Advantages, and GCA has some guarding against duplicate advantages. However, this means that if a language and a culture have the same name, in this case "Centran", and a character already has the language, adding the cultural familiarity is silently rejected. Had me puzzled for a few minutes.

In the next version, they'll be separate entities, so that will avoid this kind of problem.

Of course, you can always go in and edit the files to add " (Culture)" to the CF names, much like how the template packages are listed; if you don't feel like editing the files, adding it in the Simple Edit screen works too. In the short term, those are probably the most viable solutions.

Good to hear the next version is going to have separate names for languages and CFs that share a name. Looking forward to it.
