Wow. What a powerful tool! (As one that made a lot of "maps" back in the day for RB3D and even wrote some tools for doing it, I am really impressed!)
I am working through the manual and great You Tube tutorials. It's slow going but I'm learning and having fun doing it. So far I am just adding AI missions.
The first one is a mission to supply the aerodrome at Phalempin from Lillie. It has two parts. The first is a supply train that goes from Lillie to Phalempin. The second is a truck convoy that goes from the Phalempin train station to the base that is close by.
Although I haven't tested it yet, I think I have it right. The train is triggered by the start of the mission. The truck convoy is triggered by the train arriving at its final waypoint after a delay (unloading the train and loading the trucks!)
So here are my first questions....
1. How do I get this scenario to repeat after a delay? When that happens, do the train and trucks disappear and reappear at their respective starting points? (That's fine if they do.)
When I started designing the mission, I first imported the base_no_trunc and the base_for_trunc files. That of course put a zillion things on the map. I then selected and deleted everything that was out side of the area that my mission takes place which is the four sectors defined by A1 to B2. I am assuming that there are still too many objects in that area which is why I haven't tested it yet.
2. Do I have to thin them out one at a time? What if I end up needing something that I deleted? Is there anyway to reinsert what was there initially?
3. Honestly, I can't find this answer but it is a basic one. How do I test the mission? I assume I have to put the mission file somewhere.
4. Once it is complete, what is the difference between running it as a single player and multiplayer mission?
5. I've noticed that some airfields have several other right in the same place. For example, there is a base at Brayelles with two more (called just Airfield) in that same area. If I keep Brayelles, should I also keep the other two?
Thanks for your help.
