No, that is decidedly abnormal. Is there any chance that you started the level, got your squad killed, then left? If you reset the level, is the squad in place? Also, check the top of the first island, or the base of the third island, near the radar dish. If any of these things work out, please let me know. Also, can you tell me exactly what you did, in as much detail as possible? If you never entered Discovery, and there is no squad there, that is a problem I would like to track down...
Hi there, cheers for the reply
Re getting the squad killed, I don't think so - I entered the level as normal, let the intro script run (why the lifeforms were created and how some became predators etc...) and the camera panned over the islands until it reached the trees. The obvious implication was that the squad should have been standing there (and reading on here has confirmed that), but there was nothing.
Reseting the level doesn't work - just does the same thing. Have tried reseting, playing it, and quickly 'entering' through the intro in case they were maybe being killed while I read it, but they're definitely not there.
Top of the 1st island has the officer and the 5-6 green darwinians, but no squad.
Base of the third has nothing but the dish.
I've moved all over the island looking and can't see any sign of them, and I was beginning to think I needed to do something else in a different level so they'd appear, but couldn't find anything.
One thing which occurred to me (but which I think is unlikely to be relevant) was a wee thing I spotted in your Read Me First:
"1.1.0 Squad in Discovery moved from InstantUnits to RunningUnits"
Could this have had any effect? To be honest, I don't really understand the technical side of the game at all well, I just like playing it!
Maybe the above is totally irrelevant to this issue.
As I said I'm not looking for any unfair help as I want to play it properly, but I was pretty sure this wasn't meant to happen.
Anyway, not complaining too much - if nothing else I can always try and edit the level myself and pop a squad in there fairly easily (how many members should there be in that squad by the way?), but if there's another solution that'd be great.
Thanks once again for a great bit of work and for any assistance that you can think of.
