I guess I am having trouble understanding parts of the Mission Generator program. I spent hours on the settings for "cover" in a mission I created. I set a mountain range to have "blocking" cover, thinking that this would prevent anyone from firing through the mountain at targets on the opposite side. When I test played the mission, my tanks still fired through the solid rock. If the setting for blocking cover does not block firing of weapons, what does it actually do? Can anyone out there please explain? :confused:

It has nothing to do with the cover modifiers (meaning cover only modifies stats). It's a feature for all the weapons (except melee i think). Obey_Terrain_Line_Of_Sight and Obey_Entity_Line_Of_Sight. This will prevent it from firing through the mesh of some objects/units and the Terrain. Granted Obey_Entity_Line_Of_Sight doesn't work perfectly and can give you some qwerkey effects. I use both, make sure to tick both options for all the weapons in the game (except melee).

I'm sorry, but I don't see the features you are referring to. In the Mission Editor, all I see is a pull-down menu allowing you to either select Footfall or Cover. When Cover is selected, it gives me the option of painting the map with either None, Light, Heavy, Negative, Blocking, or Stealth. I don't see any other options to "tick". If you are referring to something outside the Mission Editor, I wouldn't know how to use the other tools. Also, I have no idea what "Stealth" Cover is all about. I do very much thank you for your help.
