Does anyone know how to make a mission?
« on: August 04, 2018, 03:22:24 PM »

I'm trying to learn and have so far learned to save a new mission and place ships on it but cant figure out how to make them move. The mission editor is not like 1946 FMB.

Completely different logic, and I'd say it's not intuitive on the first run. It's a development tool, not a proper editor. Quite powerful as it seems, but still not for the faint-hearted. If you're ready to invest two weeks in the basics, Mike or Skylla can hint you in the right direction. Else you may just want to enjoy what we already have. This is what I do  ;) This is not an advice, this is just a warning.

Thanks. Actually I have found a very nice person over at the forums who quickly uploaded some great tutorials on youtube for me. Have a look....

I plan to do my best to make some good missions to share. If I cant mod it yet, I may as well find some way to give back. :)

I find that thread rather confusing, but might be just me.
Furthermore the question you've asked in that thread is not the same question like you've asked here.

To answer both:

The one and only Mission Editor Manual is available here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/26303-il-2-sturmovik-mission-editor-and-multiplayer-server-manual/
This is the starting point for mission building in BoS.
The BoS Mission Editor (often times referred to simply as "ME") has nothing in common with the IL-2 1946 FMB.
You have to get used to it, but once you did, it's extremely powerful, most of the times way beyond the FMB, albeit still limited unfortunately.

How to open up missions after update (your question from the other forum) has been answered here long time ago:

(last paragraph, "Old missions desperately don't open anymore")
