I want to try my hand at new map making.  Would love to do some Russian maps of middle war since most of the current content would fit there.  Any suggestions for tutorials or references?

Thanks for that Joe, but I think he was on about actually modelling a map (making the scenery etc).

But your post does seem like a good quick start guide to the mission editor, so later I will create a sticky for it and move it to its own special place

Post now moved to:-

I  must agree to what Tay said, it s good tutorial on what you posted Joe, but Shpagin knows his way around the editor,
and has built 2 mission series which i host on my site.
Mortain Counteroffensive for I44 and Panzer Leader Series for Iron Front, and hes working on a 3rd for Hell in the Pacific Mod.
pretty creative, and historical work!

But Shpagin is asking about how to create, and build maps that you play on.
I think I have an idea for your post tho.

Tay If we can take Joes' post and set it up in its own thread and give it a name like Basic editing Tutorial or something of the like I think most folks
new to the editor and those at least know little about it could benefit from Joe's time and knowledge.

Thanks for posting!

I'm with you Shpagin,

We really need some new maps, I'm going to be testing my patience on one soon.

yea, been thinking for sometime about buying Vue to build terrain.  But don't know how to get things into a new map. Will look at links Gunter sent and see if i can figure it out.  Kursk is a map that would be well suited to the existing content in the game.
