Wow I am stumped. I want to be able, in the mission maker, to create simple "Fly Now" scenarios starting from the historical base of a given unit - say, Escadrille SOP 129 at Villers - just to takeoff, explore, and land. But I cannot figure out how to get the correct map loaded and displayed in the builder. I think that if I can get that far the rest of it will come. Any recommendations, hints, whacks up the side of the head to get me started?
The mission editor manual is an incomplete and unsatisfactory document.
You need to watch the tutorial videos on YouTube. Just search on 'rise of flight mission editor'
Finding a given location in the mission editor is not easy because no place names are shown. However if the map has been populated with the supplied buildings template, it is possible to search for placenames in the left column. Fortunately your required airfield is included as standard.
I attach a map with Villers airfield already activated. Unzip the contents into data/multiplayer/dogfight folder, then you can run the map by starting a server within the game and adding the map to the map list.
