Post Communicator - Control Multiple Units with Ease! *Bug Fix 2
The Hanheld Transceiver/Communicator/Radio is a device that allows you to easily command multiple units on your team, such as ordering a squad of 20 soldiers to attack a base or play follow-the-leader. To start the radio, press fire to bring up a cursor.

Image

Controls:
Up/Down/Left/Right or Mouse - Move cursor
Fire - Hold and move the cursor over actors to high-light them. Press again to un-high-light all of them.
Jump - Order high-lighted actors to the cursor's position.
Crouch - Hold and move the cursor over an actor to make high-lighted actors follow it.
Pie Menu - Cancel orders sent to high-lighted actors.

FINALLY! WE don't have to be a one man army.

Cave, at this rate, we will have lots of useful things from you.
Just... Don't go too fast, we don't want you to get Modder's burn-out.

Bug Fix: The device would lag for a certain reason, that's fixed.

@Lizard - Where they flashing white? Where other waypoints placed?

Tested, it works well for me.

Edit: What OS do you have?

Edit2: Bug fix again, that last bug wasn't fixed properly, now it is.

Agreed

Anyway, were they pinned under it? Or is it more of a blatant refusal thing? Because I've seen the AI simply refuse to move if they're jammed into a position from which walking can't unstick them.

I'm starting to think this should be implemented onto a brain and then be used a vanilla content.

DL'd it and loved it! Swarms of lowly grunts are now possible! :twisted:
Experiences:

Soldier with tranciever got squashed by marching grunts. = no more multiple control.

Steep hills and shafts get actors killed (crushed).

highlighted AI shot and murdered tranciever holder when sitting still. :cry:

I can't fix the AI, that's Data's job. :???:

Also, if the AI doesn't seem to be moving, cancel all orders first and make sure there aren't any actors in the way.
