There are some things I just don't understand in war mode (Dogs of War being one of the campaign missions to feature this type).
Bases outside original HQ
So in the earlier war mission (wasteland I think it's called) after a LOT of searching I found out that you need to convert the MHQ (APC) into static so that you can build bases. Fine.
However, later on in the mission I was looking to build some bases further up field, as running back to the original HQ was getting SUCH a drag.
I guess it made sense to find out that you can't just build a base in a captured town, this might make things pretty easy. So I went back to find out if you could convert your HQ back into a MHQ and move it further up.
Well, as far as I can see.... No.
So how the hell do you place bases anywhere but your starting point? Surely you can...otherwise it's just...
[II] Control of bases in Dogs of War
So I launched into Dogs of War to find that I have absolutely no control over bases, except for using them to generate units.
Now I don't mind too much if I'm not supposed to be the leader of everything this time, but I've read some forum posts where people say there's an option to assign a commander at the start...either yourself or AI.
I don't see this option. There's a 'voting' option on the mission brief that I figured could be it, but clicking on it does diddely-squat (bug maybe?).
In some ways I like the AI taking care of business, so again the only real reason I want to be able to build bases is to be able to build them somewhere further across the battlefield (see point )
[III] Can't build units at appropriate bases
I've noticed that in Dogs of War,the AI has built a nice selection of bases at the start...including an air base.
Only problem is, I still don't have access to helicopters?
I've also noticed that if you capture a village with a barracks in it you also can't use it for building units. Before I figured this was because it wasn't near the HQ, but having noticed the air base thing I'm not so sure.
I've seen posts where people
investigate the radar installation given using a chopper
