      Yeah, I didn't realise that you need to do a "clear orders" command for the fighters as Alpha 1's notions apparently override the mission-commands.

Yeah. You have to watch out for that one. If you ever need them to depart  it's best to do it from the departure cue rather than as an AI goal :)

Clearing orders should work though.

Yeah, I didn't realise that one either :) I used to do it all via AI commands, but now I've been using the departure cue (in m campaign missions)

Alpha 1 owns all. :)
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside
