    • Drag & Drop Dispatching

      Hi all,

      I'm mindful this is a big request, so if ever, I don't expect it any time soon; if it's even at all possible.

      Currently to send vehicles we open the mission and tick vehicles, before clicking dispatch.

      I would like to see an ability to dispatch through the map itself, dragging and dropping. Perhaps holding CTRL and then dragging a vehicle onto the mission icon would assign it - this would be useful for vehicles nearby, or diverting a vehicle without having to open the window etc.

      Another implementation I would like to see is to type in a vehicle's name into a search box and that sends it when you hit enter or something.

      These are all real ways of dispatching. Map dispatching is a brilliant feature that would be a fantastic implementation into MC.

      im not sure if its in the UK version, but if so, use AAR's you can tailor them to your specific need and does save time
      You can use groups and send specific vehicles one by one, yes. However this can clutter things too.

      Being able to drag and drop a nearby vehicle or divert them from another call without opening it would be brilliant.

      I do this anyway even when using ARR. it takes abit of skill and being quick on the mark but it can be done so I cant see how Drag and drop would work any easier.

      One thing that would be beneficial is when using ARR that you can select vehicles to follow up off ARR and that it only selects vehicles from a certain radius... some of my DSu and specialist units sometimes run over an hour to a call.. which is why i have to do some follow ups and vehicle changes on the go
