Im just wondering if anyone found or got working a reliable way of getting the AI to make proper use of the Battle Bus. I tried everything I know to no avail, and as I told Thudo some time back I ended up resorting to adding KindOf = TRANSPORT to the Battle Bus however to my frustration that didnt work either.

I took a look through every single script in every single map and without exception the only way EA ever got it to work was by either (i) spawning the Battle Bus then getting the passengers to enter it or (ii) by having the Battle Bus pre-placed and named, then having the passengers built as a team and then having them enter the named unit.

Anyone found a workable better way, as those 2 methods are impractical for skirmish use?

^ Yes, thudo did! But that was just with the TRANSPORT flag. I've just tested it, it works. I gave the battle bus the TRANSPORT flag, made a small team with 1 battlebus and 2 rebels and told them to load with the usual "Load team into transports" script. It was 1 team, and it was in the Normal state instead of Aggressive.

I know that you know this, but it is often the obvious things that are forgotten. Is your infantry garrison team in the Aggressive state? If it is it won't load as you certainly know.. but I have no clue otherwise why it works here and yours doesnt :p
