Bug Description

Allow reuse of the IFV logic and more turrets, have a unit like..
HI.vxl
HItur1.vxl
HItur2.vxl
Hitur3.vxl
then,
IFVUNIT=FV,HI

[GI]
...
IFVMode=1
IFV2Mode=7

Based on the documentation, shouldn't this issue be largely fixed by allowing Gunner=yes for multiple units? I'll test when I get chance.

Pretty sure Gunner=yes should provide multiple current-IFVs to work, although haven't tested this myself yet.

Extending to allow more weapons/turrets isn't there yet though (if this were done then wouldn't really need IFV2Mode=)

I replaced one instance of Unit->ID == "FV" with Gunner == yes . There are no more references to the FV as such in the code, so multiple IFV should work just fine. Needs to be tested!

Multiple weapons, hm, I had made progress on that front but left it alone until I could come up with a decent weapon selection mechanism. Though that wouldn't affect this case... I think that the weapon array can be extended just fine, I'll see when I find time to do that.

Can confirm that duplicating the FV rules, art and turret set results in a functional duplicate including turret changes. New unit uses its own turret voxels and weapons specified. In vanilla turrets do not appear.

So, things that have been discussed for enhancing this:

1. More weapons/turrets
2. VoiceIFVRepair

This has been split to bug:986 and bug:987. Other ideas for improvements should be listed as new bugs and this bug should be left as the master.

And retargeting to 0.3 as bug:987 won't get done before that.
