Mission editor lacking invisible objects placement, missing SOFLAM for CAS and Arty
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When trying to place an invisible object for a Helipad, no invisible objects are available. Also, there seems to be no SOFLAM or LASER DESIGNATOR for use with designating targets for ARTY and CAS to destroy.

There's a lot more stuff missing from the "Empty" category, I believe.
Seeing as the alpha is focused on infantry combat, and it includes vehicles meant for high mobility around the map, it's a shame that you can't make a mission where an AI pilot drops you off in a helicopter, simply because there are no helipads available, so I suggest adding them.

But about the designator, what would you need that for at the moment? The only artillery shells available are HE shells, the mortar rounds, and none of the aircraft has locking weapons as far as I'm aware.

Thank you for reporting this issue to us. We appreciate it, keep up the good work and help comuinty and developers to build better game for all.

Mass close.
