1. When positioning your units during setup. Select the unit you want to position, open the LOS tool, search around the map using the LOS tool to find a position that overlooks the killing area etc or dead ground to keep them safe. Once you have found a suitable location for the task in hand, do not move the mouse, press the space bar and left click with the mouse and that unit will position itself on the location. And then recheck you got it right.
2. To keep your scout units safe and concealed as the "Scout" command will not prevent them opening fire, either give them a "Hold" fire command or better still, set the maximum range for both hard and soft tgts to only about 100 yds or whatever you want. Otherwise, they will open fire on anything at any range as soon as they see them and give there positions away. If you give them a "Hold" fire command, be aware that they can be easily destroyed if an enemy unit comes upon them whereas with the ranges set, they will open fire just before they are discovered. Also do the same with HQ units which you want to keep safe or any HQ units you are using as FOO or MFC parties etc which you have hidden away observing the battlefield.
3. To avoid the time delay, when opening fire with a unit that has had a "Hold" fire SOP, select "MAX" range in the SOP's and units will open fire immediatly, otherwise their will be a time delay if you select "short" or "Eff" sadly it does not work the other way round if you want a unit to hold fire and they will keep firing until the time delay is up wasting ammunition and giving positions away etc.
