Can you allow to copy playable units?
Reviewed, LowPublic


For example if I copy a plyable unit in editor and then paste it that unit will be playable too.

You're saying it won't let you copy and paste playable units, other than non-playable?

When I copy and paste a playable unit it becomes unplayable. I want it to keep playable too.

Been like this since ArmA: Armed Assault, possibly even in OFP.
I think it's time to fix this, BIS ? :P

Indeed this has been a constant "mosquito-bite-sized" bother for MP mission-makers since OFP.
I guess it's because the "Playable" status fall in the same category as the "Player" one... but it's been 3 versions of the engine by now, I think something could be made to make it so only the "Player" status can't get copied.

Jup very strange.

  1. Open Editor and create Unit/s
  2. Strg + X
  3. Strg + V
  4. Unit become unplayable setting

Very distracting.

This suggestion was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

You can add a special keybinding.
For example:

  1. You select a unit, or a group of units
  2. You press a P key
  3. Selected units become playable
