Ive been talking to some people and its possible to write some scripts to keep people from switching sides just like if you play evolution and leave then come back u still have your score.  

I think the howizter is a good idea but who is going to script that.  I sure cant.  The mortar scripts are pretty complex I dont think they will work with the howizter.

well the howitzer can do a full 360 Degree spin and pretty much point up like the mortar from OFP

Are the 'mortars' supposed to spawn anyplace or just around the MHQ?

If it's just at the MHQ, why not plop an AI in the howitzer and just leave them as stationary defense?

I tried to download the mission about 2 days, but wglcti.com ist not reachable for me. Does anyone have the same problem or is the site simply down ?

I don't know for sure, what’s the range on the howitzer?

Couldn't we create a simple “onmapclick†command where an invisible target is placed.

Then type “howitzer knowsabout targetâ€

Then it's ordered to target and fire on it?

I know a similar script existed in OFP to increase the snipers range

Sounds simple, I’ll give it a go.

I will add the howizter to the addon and then put it in mission and test it. Maybe old mortar scripts will work.

If it does work the only problem I see would be the Coordinates how you say well while testing and Being the Officer and Instructing say Group Foxtrot Move to say GG57 then u look and see that ur Coordinate is actually more SW and in a different area all together. Has happened when I was a commander may of been just coincidence but will test it again later tonight

Some players having a hard time with the grass on?

This is beta, so eyecandy stuff is least of my worries. I plan to put options in login screen for like fastgame no grass. Or like WestCoop/No grass or westcoop/halfgrass.

Has anyone been able to get this to work with Chammy's Sound Mod?

While I'm here let me ask something else as well:

After using the repair truck to build a Heli-pad, I noticed we get some uh-60's landing to pick up troops...is there anyway to send some sort of request to be picked up by chopper and brought back to home base whenever you like? ( when playing in coop & not as commander)

Thank you!
