Just before a ground combat mission starts, a person would have to set up their soldiers with equipment, which is an annoying task, especially if you are spreading the equipment evenly.

The solution: Equipment profiles. These profiles are basically inventory adjustments that are saved, and can be loaded for any soldier that needs these adjustments, provided that the equipment is available. These profiles can be named, and recieve special status for some. For example, you can create a profile named "Default" and then check the "Make Default" button. That means every time just before a ground mission starts, that profile is loaded.

That has been thought of and decided on. We will have the same weapons equiped as on the last mission AFAIK.

The profiles can be still quite useful, though. For example, you can create a capturing-oriented profile and save it for later use, for those times when you want to capture aliens. Or a profile for mass-destruction weapons. Being limited to only the last mission equipment, while useful, is still a bother at times.

Are the soldiers not being equipped individually before the mission starts? I thought that was what we were doing?
"If it moves - kill it. If it doesn't move - kill it anyway, it might move later."

They are, however all their gear is not on the floor it will be the same as the last mission, u will still ave the screen but it will b more like Apoc.

I think what Sabin is suggesting is that there be a number of saved profiles for each soldier about equipment they should use, which I personally would never use since I equip them as 2 their stats. All my soldiers have specific purposes
