I whish the Warfare mission had options to disable the (continous) autosave during the game.

Another thing is to make the save, when shutting down the server/game, optional (maybe a prompt).

It is called host vs dedicated server. :)

Host can also be called "local server".

You can disable auto saving on mission exit via scripting or do you mean
auto saving during playing the mission?

Yes, I mean the autosaving during the mission which can be a pain in the ass.

Autosaving during a mission is actually a scripted event within the mission. I agree it can happen at some inappropriate times, ie enemies still present while saving, so the mission design needs carefully looking at to make sure saves happen at safe times.

A prompt for the save on exit would be useful instead of it automatically happening, a dialogue prompting the user to save or exit would be better imo.

The money and supplies is a separate issue, and should have its own ticket.

It's since 1.03 disabled by default in multiplayer - not exactly what I requested, but I can live with it.
