Use creative dialogue to fill in the things you cannot actually do... saying something happens off screen can be just as effective as showing it... at least your story can progress and you can always go back and change it when a feature or function becomes available.
Things will not always be perfect or what you wanted... that is life in general... do what you must to get by to keep moving forward.
i mean 1 squad, members doing different things, there is a cap limit on npcs on a map so if you can tune specific actors of a squad and have them interact with there enviroment as you see fit would remove alot of map clutter and load.
