Your comments are most appreciated. ***At least someone is reading the Guide thoroughly!
Sorry for the "negative" comments. ***I didn't mean for them to sound negative. ***No agenda, they are just my thoughts... and my quirkly British humour!
Regarding the "Destroy" waypoint. ***I must admit to not having tried to destroy my own vehicle. ***I always just assumed you would only be able to destroy enemy units.
If you issue an "Unload" waypoint, any passengers will disembark. ***If you then issue a "Load" waypoint, the passengers will get back into the original vehicle, assuming it is still intact. ***However, there needs to be some sort of waypoint between the two, otherwise they will get back in immediately. If a vehicle comes under enemy fire, any AI infantry aboard will automatically disembark and take up combat positions and return fire. ***As stated in the guide, you can also get a unit to "Unload", create a "Move" waypoint, and then "Load" after the move. ***Any infantry will then follow the vehicle to the "Move" waypoint before mounting again.
I have now added the Resistance weapons.
The V-80 Kamov is listed in OFP as "V-80 Kamov prototype" which make me think it refers to the original V-80 Kamov which was indeed discontinued in 1971. ***The V-80 design was later reused for the KA-50, so why not call it the "KA-50 Kamov"?
Thanks for the info about the AI commander getting the squad to follow you aboard the transport. ***I hadn't noticed this. ***I will give it a go!
Yes. ***The square icon is useful for all sorts of things, and your comments about getting the helicopter to lower/land are correct. However, this is as a result of your command to your squad to "Mount" vehicle. If your squad is killed (or if you are playing as a lone sniper, for example) and you need to get to an extraction point, you cannot issue a "Mount" command and there would be no way of getting your helicopter to pick you up. ***Hence, my comments about using the "Get Out" waypoint to ensure your ride comes down to get you!
Again, ***many thanks for taking the time to read the guide, and your comments. ***They are most appreciated!
