+1

i think it should be a piece of paper that appears on the communications console, like on most servers about 5 mins into the round they get an intelligence report in captain office and on the bridge. shouldnt be hard to transfer that coding into this server i think

I'm working on an OPORD now and I'll post it to the thread once I'm finished. One issue with this is that it will have to be made clear for COs/XOs that the OPORD is received from your 1up, so the orders are actually given to you from your Battalion Commander, and it will be up to you to bring those down to a Company level. This means no copy and pasting the OPORD into your megaphone and using that to give your briefing.

Seems helpful for newer command players, something to start with.
Careless, as usual.

I agree with this idea - I'd even like there to be very rare rounds where pirates/colony rebels have actually risen up, to keep the marines on their toes and have them actually prepare for a standard operation against "pirates" or whatever. Then adapt when the xenos hit them.

It also gives them a good explanation to be carrying down loads of explosives and gear for a "something".

Either way, it's good to keep marines paying attention to the briefing and the commander saying something other than the standard cookie cutter.

I like this, and I think it'd be good for new XOs (or SOs pressed into service) trying to put together a briefing.
