You knew this was coming right?

Ok. I need to know where to look for the best tutorials on using the Mission Editor. Specific topics I need to understand--triggers, scripts, map editing--all of the finer points of mission making. The Manual that came with the game is predictably mysterious. I know everything that was in Fabianfred's video tutorials, so I know how to make a very basic mission with no objectives or victory conditions, and without a mission briefing text. I know how to assign movement scripts, and wait scripts, and how to set up an artillery bombardment.

Any help at all would be appreciated.

You have seen the videos so you have seen most existing tutorials.
I made a small tutorial on my website:
http://rends.gametoast.com/RENDS_Website/Welcome.html

about adding units and let them move.
I suggest to read the manual again and again and compare with the stock scripts.
I´ve made a short how to texts just for me but they are all in german and i have no time to spend yet to translate them into english..

Thank you Rends, for the info and the advice.

Maybe Google translate would make the German text sufficiently readable for me. Could you upload the How To so I can try it?

Learned a few things from your website--now I can make my tanks take up a position and defend it, rather than just keep advancing. Thanks.

formatted like the original for ease of use.....


Changing the Mission Name:

2. In the folder loc_rus/text, create a copy of 'mis_text.text' and rename it , for example, as 'rds1_text.text'.
   Open the file and add in an entry, using the same name as before, in bold:

txt_mc_Rds1() {Rends test map, May, 7, 1942. 13:00 (T-34); }


Adding / editing the History text in the mission selection screen:

1. Open the file, 'user_camp.engcfg', in the loc_rus/levels/LEVELS/camp folder.

Rds1, txt_mc_Rds1, 1, 0, pz3_03.tga, txt_cit_01, 30, txt_histrends_intro, hist_map_teach, levels\levels\cm_users\Rds1.level;

2. In the folder loc_rus/text, create a copy of 'mis_text.text' and rename it , for example, as 'histrends_text.text'.
   Open the file and add in an entry, using the same name as before, in bold:

loc_rus ()
 {

 txt_histrends_intro() {the text goes here...  ;}

 }


Using or creating a new historical overview map:

1. Open the file, 'user_camp.engcfg', in the loc_rus/levels/LEVELS/camp folder.
   Change the section in bold print below:

Rds1, txt_mc_Rds1, 1, 0, pz3_03.tga, txt_cit_01, 30, txt_histrends_intro, rds1karte, level\levels\cm_users\Rds1.level;

2. In the folder, loc_rus/textures/hist_maps, create a tga file with same name, rds1karte (See the Editor Manual for more information)


Changing the Load screen image:

1. Open the file, 'user_camp.engcfg', in the loc_rus/levels/LEVELS/camp folder.
   Change the file name in bold print below:

 Rds1, Rds1, 1, 0, pz3_03.tga, txt_cit_01, 30, txt_histrends_intro, hist_map_teach, levels\levels\cm_users\Rds1.level;

2. In the folder, loc_rus/images/backs, create an image file with same name, pz3_03.tga


Creating a map icon for the in-game map:

1. In the Mission editor, create a map contour with 2 points only, and assign it a name, for example, village.

2. Open the file, '<mission_name>_script.engscr' in the folder, loc_rus/levels/LEVELS/SCRIPTS/cm_users.

3. Add an entry to the cs_map block:
 cs_map ()
 {

 ext, add_mo, map0, arrow0, 0x80006000, 0x80202020, 1,5, txt_md_s01_2kr_liman, 0, tobrest, -1, true, 0;
 ext, add_mo, map0, flag_tri0, 0x80006000, 0x80202020, 1,5, txt_md_s01_2kr_liman, 0, village, -1, true, 0;
 ext, set_map, map_rkka_dira_01, -1, 1, false;
 nop;
 }

4. The tag txt_md_s01_2kr_liman (which can be changed any time) points to a label string, which is displayed in the game.
   Open the text file, '<mission_name>_loc_data.text' in the folder, loc_rus/levels/LEVELS/SCRIPTS/cm_users.
   Create the abovementioned entry, for example:

 txt_md_s01_2kr_liman () {Village; }

1. In the Mission editor, create a map contour with 2 points only, and assign it a name, for example, tobrest.

2. Open the file, '<mission_name>_script.engscr' in the folder, loc_rus/levels/LEVELS/SCRIPTS/cm_users.

3. Add an entry to the cs_map block:
 cs_map ()
 {

 ext, add_mo, map0, arrow0, 0x80006000, 0x80202020, 1,5, txt_md_s01_2kr_liman, 0, tobrest, -1, true, 0;
 ext, add_mo, map0, flag_tri0, 0x80006000, 0x80202020, 1,5, txt_md_s01_2kr_liman, 0, village, -1, true, 0;
 ext, set_map, map_rkka_dira_01, -1, 1, false;
 nop;
 }

As indicated by the label in bold above, 'arrow0' will produce an arrow symbol on the map.
The adjustment of the arrow's direction is done in the mission editor, by aligning the map contour with the camera.
Sight the horizon in the desired direction and click the yellow arrow icon in the toolbar above.
(See the editor manual for more details)

 }

 }

I've re-phrased the awkward bits to make things clearer for English speakers.
The auto-translation was of a dire quality and it kind of broke up towards the end.  Smiley
