Issue description
Item 138 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 20:14:20

Edited Request  ⇑ top

The player should be able to assign soldiers to particular positions in the dropship, and these positions should be reflected by the actual spawn points in the map. (Edited by H-Hour)

Original Request  ⇑ top

In the ol` x-com the squad began the mission inside the craft. The first soldier had to open the craft door in order to get out, and in some cases an alien shot him while opening the door >:) Anyway, I would prefer aranging my squad myself, rather than let the game arange the soldiers around the craft. That in the missions where is a craft (I noticed that in some cases the craft isn't on the map)

I agree with this, I like having my soldiers easy to group. The way UFOAI starts them out, you have to have one catch up to the other, and waiting like that can cost civilian lives and loose the player points.

I like the benefit of not having to march all my sardines out of the can they came in. I mean really they are all going to end up massed outside the ship anyways. I'm not in favour of changing this.

Trying to get your squat team out of the ship wile there are a couple of aliens nearby taking pot shots at you is fun to. (unless you forgot to take some smokers with you) ;)

It makes sense to have the squad out and surrounding the ship to start. It is kind of like their SOP is to secure the drop site
