Post Equip Actors with Weapons before the game starts.
Pretty much I think an option in the pie menu to spawn Actors with weapons in the editor. That way you wouldn't have to just drop it at their feet. One problem with Endless Skirmish is that I try to make huge bases with loads of actors in it but to arm them I have to place a lot of weapons that requires a lot of time. So most of the time the weapons despawn by the time I'm finished and it's pissing me off.

Is it possible to make this?

You can create your own pre-equipped versions of your soldiers pretty easily.

For example:
Code:
AddActor = AHuman
    CopyOf = Coalition Light
    PresetName = Coalition W/AR and Grenades
    AddInventoryItem = HDFirearm
        CopyOf = Coalition Assault Rifle
    AddInventoryItem = TDExplosive
        CopyOf = Grenade
    AddInventoryItem = TDExplosive
        CopyOf = Grenade


This could work as a simple template, though correct spacing should be done (use of tabs). I'm pretty sure that if you paste that code (with correct PresetNames and all, I think I typed some wrong) at the end of the Coalition Index.ini you should have an extra soldier in the buy menus which should be this one with pre-equipped stuff.

The one you posted doesn't appear to work, but thank you for the idea.

However I still think i'd be a good idea for that to be an option in the menu.

Yeah, because being lazy to make a bunch of soldiers is what I'm professional at.
