Please have Gunslinger Ratfolk favored class alter the Gunslinger Initiative class feature

Description

From the SRD Ratfolk page:

Favored Class Options
Gunslinger: Add a +1/2 bonus on initiative checks when the gunslinger has at least 1 grit point.

The app allows unbounded selections of this bonus, but caps the math at +2. See attached for example. I have selected 8 levels of this bonus, which should result in a +4 initiative. However, it is reported at +2, and will continue to be reported at +2 no matter how many more levels I take.

Attaching the character pcg is helpful as well. It allows me to recreate the conditions for replicating or verifying the bug.

I'm not sure if I would classify this as a bug. You aren't getting any bonus from the favored class bonus at all. That message is from the class feature "Gunslinger Initiative"

DESC:At 3rd level, as long as the gunslinger has at least 1 grit point, she gains the following benefits. First, she gains a +2 bonus on initiative checks. Furthermore, if she has the Quick Draw feat, her hands are free and unrestrained, and the firearm is not hidden, she can draw a single firearm as part of the initiative check.

Which includes:
ASPECT:CombatBonus|2 bonus on initiative checks if you have 1 grit points. TEMPBONUSC|COMBAT|INITIATIVE|2

I suppose I could influence that to alter the numbers, but this wouldn't be a bug, more a feature.

D'oh! Yeah OK I see. I saw that my bonus wasn't increasing as I selected more levels and totally forgot about this base ability.

Agreed. At the very least, it's more than a little confusing the way it works now, picking up one conditional bonus but not the other. It it were either added to the existing +2 or displayed in a similar manner as a separate +whatever, I think would be fine.
