I'll tackle this one, Badger.

Chris, this might be because of a primary unit dying, which is meant to prohibit buying them again (from the example ships - obviously cannot hire a person again if they died), but the new groups don't have a problem with this, and are very likely to lose their units, so can't really be bought again. The exception is Firesupport, due to being all sniper types.

I'd propose just making that an optional line in XML, so if there is a future, individual mercenary leader, his group would be disabled if he himself dies, but it doesn't stop other groups.

I have added a "Primary unit must survive to allow group to be rehired" xml field to the mercenary groups. This will significantly improve clarity on this point

Is this working?

I'll test this later today and report back - I gave up on getting the developer version working, so currently I have to wait for the steam builds for any C# stuff.

On that compiler problem, will still work on that with you.

10-4. I think I want to upgrade the unity version before we try again on that, just to see if it's a version-specific thing.

Fixed so long ago - evidently I forgot to test this in a reasonable time.
