A good way to assign a specific number of different units to the same patrol mission.

i.e. There are 2 different types of ASW helos assigned to an asw patrol mission. Currently if you select 1 unit to be on mission at a time, it will result in 1 unit of each of the 2 different types of helos to be on the mission at a time. But I'd like to have the option of only having 1 total on the mission.

Maybe this could be accomplished by adding a qualifier to the number units (or 1/3 option) on a mission-
-Total number of EACH unit type on patrol - default and how currently works
-Total number of ALL units of any type on patrol

Can we get the UI for selecting dbs changed to a scroll-able window. Right now, the list is so long that trying maneuver down the list with the little arrow is almost impossible on small screens.

Somethings that are already in the system:
1. Lua: join group
--{name='CVN BG', guid='9506a165-6e44-40dd-b721-f9c07e056bdb'} group to join unit to
ScenEdit_SetUnit({name='LST 4001 Osumi', guid='8269b881-20ce-4f2e-baa0-6823e46d55a4'}).group = '9506a165-6e44-40dd-b721-f9c07e056bdb'
To remove from a group
ScenEdit_SetUnit({name='LST 4001 Osumi', guid='8269b881-20ce-4f2e-baa0-6823e46d55a4'}).group = 'none'

2. Lua: compel ship to UNREP (also applies to aircraft)
ScenEdit_RefuelUnit({name='LST 4001 Osumi', guid='8269b881-20ce-4f2e-baa0-6823e46d55a4'})

3. Lua: assign escort on strike
ScenEdit_AssignUnitToMission ('30184f60-768b-4e2e-847d-19c97289357e', 'test strike', true)
The last parameter is optional and if included will assign the a/c to the escort part of a strike mission

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but I'd like a way to copy/clone and paste or merge individual units/groups/facilities from one scenario to the next... especially if they can retain unit names, any customizations, and/or damage states.

Isn't some of that done with export and ini files today? Not sure about all of it though.

edit: On first pass, inst files retain weapon sensor, etc. customization and name, but not damage.

The INST files basically restore pristine copies of the units from the database.

I wondered if I could put forward the request that the generic light blue/red/green/yellow unit/ship/groups ect colour's be changeable/set able for scenario designers.

The reason for this if you are using map overlays especially if its a map with a light background ,rather than a satellite overlay, its nigh on impossible to pick out unit colour's against the overlay.

Sounds a minor thing TBH but it would be a handy addition.

Regards

Butch

I saved an inst of my ship and when loaded, it retained only the name. Senors and weapons went back to default database values. It might be due to different DBs in the separate scenarios, but in the end apparently I've gotta rebuild the thing again. Not a huge pain, but it'd save me 5-10 minutes every time I want to try this variant out in something else. More of a pain if you've gotta use delta files to add in stuff like missile commo links that can't be done in the editor (unless that's changed recently).

hellfish6,

I have found this to be true of anything saved as a .inst file. When reloaded the items default to their original original attributes. Really a pain after I spent much time changing a whole bunch of things to "non-detectable" and saving them. When reloaded they were all "detectable" again.

Hi guys.

I was wondering if there is a chance to add an ability in CAP-AAW mission where the player can assing each flight a specific target/group of targets inside the patrol/prosecution zone.

Nevertheless you devs are doing great job improving the game.
