1. If you are letting the AI run the search arcs, don't do anything with the search arc buttons - leave them the way they were when you started setting up the search mission. If you have been playing with them, just hit "Stand Down" and reset the search mission but not the arcs. I use this and frankly it seems more effective than when I was setting arcs myself.
2. I had the same reaction - WTH do I do now! Then I accidentally discovered the secret. Two steps:
- First, left click on an eligible unit and it will bring up a screen showing the devices the unit will have when it comes back, and the PP cost. You do not have to do anything on this screen, just exit back to the "Destroyed LCU" list. The unit you were looking at will now be listed with a PP cost at the end.
- Second, RIGHT click on the unit to get the screen asking if you want to spend the PP to buy it back. It will also tell you where and how long before it comes back. Click yes to proceed. The unit will be added to your reinforcement queue.
