HiCmdQ - How 2 Make Squad enter Vehicles?
my question came up playing the dogs of war mission of the red harvest campaign. When taking the city and Shaftoe sends some units over in Helicopters for the high command modus. I want to use these infantry squads to enter these UH-60s so I can move them around faster. How do I do that?
Also, if there is a more comprehensive tutorial or manual on the high command mode please let me know. There are some of the orders I do not get like e.g. "communication->set type" or "re-spawn".
I do not have these problems with the regular command menu. There I can make my squad do anything I want. But I seem too noobish to use get the
high command mode.
All help is much appreciated!
EDIT: BTW - First Post
hmmm, may I be in the wrong forum? I put it here as this should not be an issue just in this one mission?
Or is it even possible to put an infantry squad into an vehicle? IIRC it does not come up in the tutorial for the high command.
Its possible to have them enter vehicles but only into empty vehicles and you MIGHT be able to make them get into vehicles that are in their own squad. It is something to do with waypoints. You can't have them get in the MH-60S' as far as I am aware. Sorry. I could be wrong though.
Ah thank you Jakerod.
I did the tutorial on high command again and there the way point menu was very briefly shown/explained (RMC on it).
I assume that is the way to do it then:
Tell them to go to a WP and further make the WP a "GET IN"-WP. And the squad should then go there and enter the closest free vehicle.
When you say I can not have them enter those Choppers is it a Dogs of War thing or general because a helicopter is never empty because of the pilot-crew?
again thanks for the response!
I have to nothing helpful to offer, but why the hell is the topic named HICMDQ?
I actually heard of a way to get them into a vehicle with a crew already in it a while back but I don't remember where. I could never get it working though anyway. You can make them get into a helicopter though, it just can't have anyone in it (ex. pilot).
I gave it up after several tries. I will just have to do it without the choppers. I will try it sometime with an empty vehicle. I have differetn problems now
=> If they don't want to get in there...fine...but I wish they would not tip over my T72s ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME My men are just a bunch of turds.
