you know in rts games like age of empires or empire earth you had the option to basically give a unit(s) a move command that when you hold down shift then click again the unit(s) would move to the first waypoint then move to the second?
well you could do it in this game but you would use ctrl instead of shift.
ex 1. you select tank 1 and order it to move to a first waypoint while holding ctrl. then left click on a second hex without holding the ctrl button. that gives the unit (tank 1) orders to move to the first hex (doing the usual, attacking units on the way (with the occasion of the unit getting below the reccomended health which then retreats), and when it gets to that hex it moves on to go to the second hex.
ex 2. you select two or more units and click on a hex while holding the shift key (to make them move to the very same hex) and the ctrl key. then you release the shift key (because when the units get there they will have arrived at the same hex therefore not needing to keepholding it.) while still holding the ctrl key, and click on a second hex. then you release the ctrl button and right click on a enemy unit ordering the units to attack this unit on the third waypoint.
(you can only do the more advanced options (besides the air/sea transport because when it unloads it can go ahead and start moving, and the attack button) on the last click. (the program senses you still have the ctrl key pressed down and dosnt allow you to click the more advanced button, but when you realease it you get more options in which to order.)
(in the case the unit that it was ordered to terminate is terminated by other units besides the ones you have selected. it goes on to fufill the next order.) (if that order was the last order, it will move to the position that the unit was terminated.)
(in case that the the transports that responded to your order to air/sea transport the selected unit(s) to the selected hex are destroyed, the unit(s) will stop where they are when they receive that order)
did this in the developmental topic "unit command suggestion"
