My other mods :


HCC is a client side addon that enables a leader player to convert any unit(s) of his squad into a controllable HC group. Conversely, any HC group under player's command can join the leader's group.
The game's default High Command system has been heavily modified to allow thoughtful plans and coordinated execution via the addition of numerous commands and menus to the original interface.
A custom Chain of Command system, large groups formations and waypoints synchronization can be used to issue orders and handle movement at squad, platoon or company level.

Use LCtrl+Space to access the High Command interface and hit the number keys (1 ... 0) to display the HC menus.

Still working for me. Turns out I just had to set the bindings. (Configure -> Controls -> Show: Commanding -> Open Menu 1-0) bam works

How do you select already existing groups. For example if I spawn in an AI squad in editor then play as a squad leader of a different team, the other team has a red marker over them and I cant select them.

This mod works fine in singleplayer, but in multiplayer it is only the host who can use the mod as intended. Clients can create HC groups, but have no options in the 1-9 menu's. The 0 Menu is visible, but nothing but the true/false settings works.

When I go to support there is nothing on it, why is that?

I love this mod, it’s amazing. I have a question though. If I’m playing online with 1 friend and I’m the high commander, does my friend need to have the mod installed also? Thanks
