Debarking SF From Helicopter into Mountain

Post by Captain_Orso » Sun Apr 02, 2017 4:13 pm

You have a Special Forces unit riding an helicopter. You select the unload button and then click on a mountain hex, for the SF unit debark into, but it never happens. You always have to redo the entire process from the helicopter hovering over the target hex. Real PITA, and I don't imagine this is WAD, no? :wink:

??? it happens every time.

You have an helicopter with an SF unit loaded. Select the helicopter and click the unload button on an helicopter. Now hold the mouse pointer over a mountain hex within lest then the full range of the helicopter. The tip of the Route-Ribbon over the mountains turns into a dot. Now click that mountain hex. As soon as you click the mountain hex, the unload button turns off, and the helicopter flies to the target hex and stops, but the SF unit does not unload. You have to now click the unload button again and click that hex again before the SF unit unloads. This happens every time.

We are missing each other on this one, if I procure a Blackhawk and a Chinook and two SF, then load them up and drop the SF into the mountains, I have no problem at all, what are you doing that I am not ? :shock:

Maybe you are selecting the unload buttom before the lift off animation is finished , then its unchecked and then you click onto the mountains and it doesnt subsequently unload. Make sure the unload button is highlighted when you click on the mountain hex to unload, thats all I can think off ...
