Helos default to on call...…. anyone see any value in allowing them to be subordinated to the FSCC in much the same way as arty or air?? This would be a selectable option for the player. The friendly AI can't possibly due a worse job of managing them than I do I've been playing this game for years and still can't manage them usefully.



So we're at war with the Russkies eh?? I suppose we really ought to invade or something. (Lonnnng pause while studying the map)
Hmmmm... big place ain't it??

Hopefully, adding some additional SOP settings with allow you to better control and use the helicopters the way you want.


Work on Southern Storm continues as we squish bugs and work on features.

I don't know, man, Helos move on the terrain so letting the AI figuring out a path across half the map if they get "called on" by a very far unit may lead to losses. At best I'd give them a "direct support" option, so they can follow closely a friendly unit and attack whatever it spots.

I figured out how to use them, you sneak them in carefully after the enemy's been engaged, they fire the missiles and go to resupply, somehow I thought earlier the helos are not sneak attack units.
