Salute

 

Is anyone able to advise on how you get groups to be nested like the attached screen shot?

 

To explain - I need a group called "Helpers". When you expand that group I have further groups within it?

 

Many thanks in anticipation.

 

Cheers

No worries - managed to do it.

 

It worked by the order in which I selected objects and added them to the groups.

You just create a group - then re-group objects while in that working group.

 

No different than folders in Windows really.

In case you need to move an icon to a group or move an icon from a group, see this post. Note that the icon you move can be a group icon.

What I miss is the fact that you cannot position in the tree the objects in a certain order, either alphabetically or manually so as to have organized trees.

The last group is put at the bottom and stays there. A little primitive.

Thankyou Gentlemen for the replies and link.

 

I think I managed to do it in a more complicated way but I will definitely take a look at the methods described.

Previously I have stayed away from groups for my own / squad missions but as I am getting more comfortable with setting the working group I can see the benefits.

 

Is it purely for neatness/organisation on the object tree that items are grouped or is there any benefit to the game?

Yes - it makes a huge difference while working. It makes a gigantic difference when coming back to make changes or squash bugs later.

 

I can’t even look at other people’s disorganized messes.

Purely for the comfort of editing the mission. No benefit to the players.
