Hello!

I have read the stickys and have some questions. ARMA, not ARMA 2, yet, :)

1) Why, when editing a map, when I place a vehicle, and then i preview the map, the vehicle is loaded onto some trees or a place where I did not place it?

2) When placing an empty vehicle, it won't let me choose playable.

3) On startup on the map, all the vehicles run over the Commander and kill him?

Thanks in advance....

i only have an answer for one of them.

fasterthanlight:
2) When placing an empty vehicle, it won't let me choose playable.

you place an empty vehicle means that the vehicle is completely empty, no bodies inside, so it cant be playable. place an empty vehicle then your player, load in and get in the vehicle. or place a vehicle, name it for example "car1", then place your player and put "this moveindriver car1". that would move your player into the driver seat of the "empty" vehicle.

It did work. Do you have to start a mission editor with a Player first, before things will work? I tried this earlier and the helo had no options to board it.

Yes without a player unit you are not able to place empty objects.

you can place a unit and make the unit as "playable" then save the mission and start the mission in multiplayer but you wont be able to preview in th editor without an actual "player" unit.

I am creating and playing a custom map with a friend. I just can't figure out how to find the description.ext file to edit so I am not the dang bird.

I named the simple mission, "Kill the Opfor"

any suggestions?

I have looked in My Documents>Arma and in the Steam>Steamapps>common>arma and no go.
