How specific are we going to get with it? Side level?

Think it should vary quite a bit. I'm kind of 50/50 on the GPS. What say the Buehgler.

50% chance you get one then :)

LOL, hmm.. Wonder how many complaints we'd get on that.

Can we do this based on AI/Playable units? Perhaps AI units should get some basic meds or whatever, but playable units should get earplugs, gps, cuffs etc.. Just a thought.

I have no problem with meds. The mod "fixes" missions to require them, so it is reasonable to make them available. But that will still leave broken missions that removeAll___ in their inits. As for the GPS, I am less interested in us adding them. The mod makes them more useful and important to have, but if the mission designer picked units without them or took them away, why should we mess with their intent.

What I would really like to see is a library of functions to provide TASM standard loadouts for a variety of units/situations -- but I will not turn that into a formal feature request until I actually have time to build missions -- you can all guess when that will be)

It will be that way, if the mission designer takes it out with RemoveAll... then you won't have it.

Since we have 2 GPS items now, I was thinking about giving the stock GPS to all soldiers to simulate a personal GPS, like a smart phone, and to have that simple functionality by default, unless the mission maker removes the GPS.
Then we have the DAGR from ACE which has some neat functionality and I might add just for team leaders.

That sounds good to me.
