I'm working on making an expansion/mod for the Brusilov and Kerensky Offensives on the eastern front. I've spent the last two weeks researching the various squadrons that are stationed in Galicia (far more than PWCG has by default) and now I want to create the new frontlines on the Tarnopol map.
The controls on "PWCG Edit Front" are confusing me and I'm wondering if someone can help a first time user. PWCG only has the two dates by default for the beginning of 1916 and end of 1917 but I created new folders for the key dates of the Brusilov and Kerensky Offensives and now they show up in PWCG. Is there a way to create new dates from within the application or does that have to be done in File Explorer?
As for editing the frontlines I'm having trouble getting my changes to save. I've tried deleting the frontline and creating one from scratch and also just dragging each individual point to where I wanted it.
What do the controls on the left hand column do (Write, Refresh and Mirror)? I thought my first attempt failed because I hit "Write" and then "Finished." When I reloaded the map everything had reverted. Second attempt I just hit "Finished" and when I went back into "Edit Front" it had saved my changes. I closed the application and went to copy "FrontLines.json" into all the folders I'd created for the new dates but when I reloaded PWCG it had reset the frontlines again.
Where am I going wrong? Is there a guide to this aspect of PWCG anywhere?
Thank you for any advice/help you can offer.
