    With this flowgraph you can have a complete squad at your commands, they will follow, help during fights, shoot by your vehicle, and listens to your orders.
    No setup is required, usable on every map, simply import the file.
    As this is still a test version, please report all the bugs and suggestions that you find in the thread, thanks.


    * (the "ai" are your team mates)

    * ai follows you and stops keeping an appropriate distance
    * ai enters in a vehicle with you or follow you by foot if the vehicle is full
    * ai engages in combat enemies while keeping following you
    * ai can be ordered to stop, form up, go to a point, enter/exit a vehicle, engage an enemy to attack
    * squad health system: every squad member 's life will be displayed on the hud, when the health is critical the character will fall down slowly dying if you don't help him
