DCG mod for easy unit setup?

Post by jonny_bass »

Setting up your forces in the DCGs is a pain in the backside, to put it bluntly. Units aren't grouped together in any way that could be considered helpful, so the first thing you (OK, I) have to do is find platoons from the same company and stack them together, often one at a time. As you can imagine, this can be incredibly tedious at anything beyond battalion command level - I tried a campaign commanding a Panzer corps and it took me the best part of THREE HOURS to get everything set up for just one battle!

So, my question is: does anybody know of a mod that would do this for you? Even just a simple thing of grouping platoons together into their companies (and doing the same for their transports) would save so much time :-)

I wish, really!

That's another (of the many) reasons why I tend to prefer LCG's over DCG's.

Jonny_bass,
No, I don't believe so. I have been working and playing this game system since 1998.

I haven't seen a utility anywhere remotely like that.
