Would be cool if useBuildingGroundDecal would work with corpses and with isFeature = true.

I must say that I have no idea... I took a look at E&E 0.46 and didn't find any walls from alien faction.

That's because the alien walls are actually live units, since it was the only way Fanger found around engine limitations such as the one you are here requesting to be lifted.

I thought that you meant that E&E has ground decals on "corpses" or on isFeature unit but because thats not the case I'm still requesting this feature.

When an isFeature unit is completed, it's switched out with a feature and the unit is gone. So all you need to ask is for grounddecals for features. I'd like this as well.

I had a quick look and didn't see anything. Engine side support for features to have grounddecals makes sense.

I don't need a tag. If I can place a decal I can look at the features look for custom params and place decal.

The walls in evo are live units as well. For a lot of reasons, but it's nice when you can tell if your wall is about to break, also we made them organic in the fact that they have low health but a high autoheal rate, makes for a pretty interesting experience, but also that walls can be broken.

Features have healthbars too. If you're using jK's healthbar widget, get the latest one from ca with the feature healthbar fix.

Yes, use LUPS. I guess I ought to get around to that code for doing full ground textures with shadow support at some point.

LUPS is a bit overkill for something like this though. The engine should really support it.
