Now I have looked at a few guides and well, it's lovely weather out today...
WARNING! : it's a work in progress. Will update as I proceed.
Create a single player mission on a map with nothing, except a plane and a train. ( for you to blow up.)
I want you the learner to be able to create your mission, name it , put stuff in it, save it and then actually play it.
Not frills, the simplest of things. no logic no fancy stuff.
1 Open editor.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\1C-777\Rise of Flight\bin_editor\release\ROFEditor.exe"
2 Click "new". Stuff will happen. Wait a bit.
Now we need to do some stuff before we save our file:
3 Edit mission properties box.
Look for a floating box called "mission properties"
Or Right click on the main window and select "properties."
Or Left click on text "my misson" in the pane that has it. ( the "mission tree" pane.)
Great now fill out the details in that box and the "mission atmosphere option"
Just like in my picture.
you will note that in the mission properties box their is an "apply" button.
Before you press this to apply your "landscape info" you need to think of a name
for your mission as it will ask for one as this in going to save the entire mission.
( you only need to "apply" when you change your "landscape info", which you will do...)
--->>> There are two "name" in this editor to be wary of,
1) actual mission file name.
2) mission name in "name" in mission properties box.
I would keep them the same to avoid confusion.
press apply and name your mission.( this is a sort of auto save. if you have not already saved your file...)

right, up next: place an actual thing on the map. ...
ok. mouse over the main pane.
Hold left mouse button and move mouse = look around
Hold right mouse button and move mouse = slide left right fwd back
scroll = up down
Right click and select "Ortho view". ( birds eye view)
now look at the "objects library" window.
click on planes ( list is bellow. )
Select a plane. ( click once on it )
mouse over the to the map.
Left click on map. ( you placed a plane. )
Try to avoid placing your plane in a forest.
a box pops up "plane properties".
Click the button "create linked entry"
Right click on the plane and select "advanced properties".
fill in like mine. then OK. then SAVE.

-->>> The step 4 in our process we "create a linked entry" obviously it is already
created in the picture! So do not be confused. : )
Erm, the train seems to glue itself onto the nearest train track. neat.
Save save save.
The mission works. I could upload it but I cannot find a file host which works without the normal crap... ideas?
oh and flags are cool. try putting some next to the train...
