I have a massive single player scenario on the drawing boards.  Chances are this is way too much to handle.  Two allies: blue and gold vs red and green.  Each of the four sides have a regiment in force give or take.  Blue and Gold is playable, Red and Green CPU controlled.  The easy part is playing Blue.  What I can't figure out is how to set up the ability to play both Blue and Gold.  Am I missing something so simple that all I have to do is click an option?  


Or is this not possible at all?

The player would need to set up a multiplayer session with him as the sole participant. He could then pick other parties. This could be described in the mission summary.

The scenario does sound oversized, however. The user interface for Steel Beasts was designed for the player to take responsibility at the company scale or below. A regiment is about nine times as much. Not only has this consequences for the player's workload, it's also likely to run Steel Beasts in CPU saturated mode with the resulting performance losses.

To name an example, at frame rates under 10 we can no longer guarantee pathfinding to work in all cases, and there will be other problems, not all of which may be apparent at all times.

Overambitious.  I was thinking on a campaign to play on my own that would literally take days/weeks for myself to accomplish when I don't have time and money to go travel on my weekends off.  Best solution is to eliminate at least one side, cut a battalion or two down, and save it for later follow up missions.  I have the templates saved so I'm clear on that.
