Another day, another idea, another problem :D

So, I had an idea to add a stormtrooper captain to every stormtrooper company. It would be a slightly overpowered stormtrooper armed with heavy repeater and switch weapon ability. But how to add it so it will be a single unit independent from stormtrooper teams?

I've coded a new ground unit called "Storm_Officer" and then added it to this tag.

Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Squad_Stormtrooper, Storm_Officer

It appears as a 1-person team which suposed to be 9-person so it gets a little weird - the officer is on the one side of map while the circle with health bar is left on the other :uhm:

Once again - what should I do to make it land with stormtroopers teams but not being contained by them?

But I want squads to be 9-person, just want officer not to be in squad.

I'm actually quite interested in making something like this happen myself, but never actually got around to doing it yet... I'll try fiddling around with it myself and see if I can find a way...

Alright, excuse the double post, but I have semi-solution that I don't particularly like, but will work (I think). Make an infantry unit that acts like your storm officer, make it invisible, make it not a valid target, make it not have a size value, and make it not shoot. Then just make it part of a nine person squad with your storm officer. Yeah, it's not a great solution, but if all else fails, it *should* work. >_>

Nason: If I deleted one of the stormtroopers, then officer would be in the squad and I don't want it.

xanofar: You might be surprised but... it seems to be really good solution! I'm gonna try it ;)

Hmm... Well, tell me how it turns out (also, could have a copy of whatever you use for your non-existant extras?) :D

I'm kind of interested of making it so Darth Vader deploys with the 501st and Palpy deploys with some royal guards, but I imagine that's a lot trickier simply because they're heroes... >_>
