Happy New Year All!!!!!!!

I often have difficulty (klutz that I am) in creating battlegroups/making attachments when there are a LOT of units within a small area -- such as when 20 or more units show up at once as reinforcements. Inevitably I'm control clicking on the unit immediately underneath the one I actually wanted or something else equally stupid. So......
Is it, or could it be, possible to create battlegroups by making the attachments from the OOB listing?? That way there's no possibility of control clicking on the wrong unit.
Just a thought........

Rob.

Good Idea.

UI 3674 - UI - OB Display - Support Multiple Selection of units for issuing of orders

Don't know yet. The longer I'm taking to iron out the AI, the greater the probability Paul will have time to implement it.

Just resurrecting this one for the EF game. Particularly if there are going to be scenarios with large numbers of Soviet
formations!! I hope, I hope, I hope...........

I'll second this--it'd be a nice feature to have.

Another vote for OB display selection ( please ) I only bought this game recently, and one of the first things I wanted to do was compose a force/KG from within the OB rather than clicking on-map, which as the OP points out can be difficult in crowded zones.

In the meantime, try pressing the zero (numpad) key make icons smaller, maybe it's easy to select the units you want?

--------------or as alternative stopgap---- let the reinforcements fast move in column onto the map briefly----then reorganize
