Thunder LRM Indirect Fire
« on: 08 May 2020, 11:52:35 »
I was trying to deliver minefields using indirect fire.  I used a Warrior H7 to spot a hex by right-clicking on it, targeting the hex for clearing, and hitting the spot button.  However, the hex never appears to have been spotted for indirect LRM fire and I can't target it to indirectly deliver Thunder LRMs.  Is there something I'm missing?

I just tried reproducing it and 47.6, and things are working OK.
I think the step you might be missing is that to deliver mines, you then need to rightclick, choose "target", then choose "deliver minefield" (of course, while having the LRM launcher be on "indirect fire" mode).

I just tried it again and it works now.  I noticed that I don't get a spot marker on the target hex like I would on a target unit.  I think I'll add that to the tracker.
