Questions & Issues Playing as Commander
I am trying to hone my skills as commander by playing the included Civil War mission as a multiplayer game against AI, but I am having a few problems.
1. AI Won't Purchase Troops
I have Teams that have thousands of dollars, but are only half full. They are under AI control, but rarely seem to spend the cash. The base has one of everything bar an airfield, and the buildings are not 'in use', so it is not like they CANT buy troops .. they just don't (at least not as often as they should)
2. Dead Teams Never Reform
Once a team loses all of its men, I can not get it to re-hire/re-buy troops. It will just stay with zero troops for ever. I have 3 teams in my current game that have over $10,000 and they won't buy a damn thing. I have tried to re-apply the AI (it was never off), selected Respawn etc without any change.
3. Can't Create New Teams
I assume that I should be able to make more than the 8 teams I am assigned at the start of the mission. I have tried purchasing Team Leaders for myself, but can only assign them to a 'colour', not to a new Team (i.e. team number 9etc)
One more thing ... what is Respawn supposed to do??
Any help appreciated.

4. Can't Create Capture Points
I can set waypoints for Teams and then edit them to say Seek & Destroy, but I can't edit the waypoint to say Capture ... no idea what I am doing wrong here.

Reason: Misleading title
I found a work around to Number 1: I can purchase troops and transfer them to the Team:
- Buy units
- select units
- Select Communication
- Select Transfer
- Choose Team
But ... this means that I am spending all my hard earned cash trying to do what the AI should be doing themselves. Which leads me to Question 5.
5. Request Cash from AI Controlled Teams
Is it possible to get money back off the Teams run by the AI?
I know how to transfer money TO them, but can I get cash back OFF them????
