Editor feature request - Switch waypoint (add for ships and ground units)

With air units you can set up and patrol route and at the last waypoint add

switch waypoint to waypoint 0

Thus the air target will keep flying the route forever

 

Sadly with both ships and ground units you cannot do this

Could we have this feature added to both ships and ground units ?

It is already implemented - since one or two patches ago. It was buggy at first, but I just re-tested it briefly (Nevada) and now it seemed to work. But I bet, it is still WIP - at least there seem to be two issues with that.

 

Use Advanced Waypoint Actions / Perform Task / go to waypoint

OR

... / Perform Command / go to waypoint

 

You see the issues I mentioned already: a) the action appears twice (but both seem to work ok) and b) the text does not match the other texts (different wording, no capitalizing ... perhaps missing translation?)

Thanks but I tried these already under 1.5.7 and they do not work, ground unit will go to the last way point defined and ignore the command to go to SP

 

Ground unit was patrolling a route on the road but stopped at last waypoint

+1 I know there's supposed to be a go to waypoint command, though I have one question, can you use the go to waypoint command to loop a route so to speak? So a unit will keep following the waypoints sequentially in a loop until commanded to do otherwise? Or is it simply ignoring it's next waypoint and going to a different one instead? If it doesn't allow you to loop could it be a forseeable option in the future? Possibly option tied in with the waypoint switching command.

 

While we're sort of on it, I'd also like to be able to define separate secondary sets of way points for all units so I can have multiple possible routes and then use triggers and commands to set which route a unit follows, allowing me to set alternate airfields for all unit should something happen mid-mission.

See my earlier post , it gets to last waypoint then ignores the go to waypoint command

 

If this worked then yes indeedy you could create a loop route for something to follow

+1 After almost three year there is no build in function for ground or ships units.

 

It will be a nice addition to ME
