    Make Ships Loop Waypoints (patrol)

    quick q: how do you make ships continuously follow waypoints in a patrolling pattern. I do not see a "go-to waypoint" command like there are for planes and ground units.

    On the last waypoint I usually do a go-to waypoint 0 to make it an infinite patrol loop.

    Don't think there is one, from other missions I've seen the designer just spams waypoints in a circle giving it hours of doughnuts without having to worry about it.
    So waypoint 1-2-3-4 for example, 5-6-7-8 overlaid on 1-2-3-4, rinse and repeat. They move so slowly just doing this a few times will provide hours worth.

      I use moose for this, stick down 4 waypoints send a moose command to the unit and it will just cycle thru all the waypoints and then go to start position and keep on looping


      function is called PatrolRoute()
