Manual for Mission making and STEditor

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just use the standard mission building manual pdf.

 

I just started having a try of the mission editor with tanks.

 

I am probably going to fail miserably though.

 

I am using this one     IL-2_BoS_Mission_Building_Guide.pdf

Easy enough to create a basic no frills SP mission.

 

But apparently, Moscow is out of bounds.

 

I placed 8x T34's defending the outer area of the city.

 

But when i started moving towards them and into their attack zone i set up.

 

I was told to turn around.  🙄  🙄.

 

Moscow map but not allowed to attack Moscow.

Obviously the playable area of the maps are limited. 😐

As others have stated, playable tanks are just like any playable plane entity except they're on the ground. Use the mission builder's guide that @Thad linked earlier but instead of a plane, use a tank. Also, the red section of the Moscow map is considered out of bounds. You'll have to move your logic more Westward if you want the appearance of attacking Moscow.

Understood but Moscow shouldn't be off limits for mission creation.

 

Or am i missing the whole picture ?

I have both, but just prefer that one. 👍

Yep

 

Moscow itself is not accessible.

All these flavors, but you choose salt?

Technically, the map isn't called Moscow. It's called The Battle of Moscow. The map covers a campaign that took place between late 1941 to early 1942.

 

Also, to defend the developers, they had stated before they started work on the map, that they were not able to completely build out Moscow and have it function correctly. So they compromised by building the Western portion of Moscow and let us fly near it for a nice visual background.

 

Finally, there are plenty of other nice looking locations for a tank battle.

there were no ground  or air  battles  in or over  Moscow city itself  to the best of my knowledge . They stopped at the outskirts and the rest is history .

DOGBERT

since Adolph decided he would take over and instructed army center to go to Stalingrad and army south to go conquer the oil fields  past Maykop you might consider moving your battles there ,  both areas are very well covered in the Stalingrad and Kuban map .

Yep - the German push toward Tuapse and the Russian defense is the perfect scenario.

 

Forget Moscow.
