Integration of Combat Support
|Target version:||1.0||Estimated time:||12.00 hours|
Integrate combat support scripts and interface;
Artillery/mortar barrages (HE, smoke, fascam), air strikes (bomb, lgb, missile, AA), resupply (ammo/weapon crates, reinforcement troops).
Support is assigned to each platoon, and only command-capable units from that platoon are able to call it in. A player in a command-capable unit can press F12 (as a toggle) to access a simple dialog or deh based interface to select a support option, a map location, and any special options (loadout, duration). Support options need to be able to be destroyed (eg, aircraft), keep track of their state (#ammo, #reinforcement soldiers, #missions remaining), and have a cooldown timer between uses.
