Minor feature request - awards
#1
Hi

This may sound pretty minor, but I'm playing a non-mercenary campaign at the moment, and I wish I had the ability to grant the characters in my unit medals and awards. Doesn't have to be terribly complex, just go into the personnel tab menu and do something like right-click to grant an award to a character from a list. Sorta like how you change their rank.

On right click:

Award:

Award 1
Award 2
Award 3
...

And maybe somewhere in the campaign options menu we can chose a pre-made list of awards or customize them with images (like portrait pics). Thus, when my unit deploys to Carver V for a 3-month mission, when it's all said and done, I can give them all a Carver V campaign medal, and then other medals for the characters who did important stuff, like held off a Blakist assault in a half-destroyed Locust or rescued the civilians in one of those special missions.

Like I said, minor, but it could go a way to helping me humanize my little puppet soldiers.

You wouldn't get to include pictures or anything like that, but you can add custom notes to a character's personal log. You could notate that they received a certain award that way. 
I like the idea though. more customization is always fun.

I do all my stuff manually for the rank and award/campaign ribbons with the portraits using the Gimp image tool.
