Mission Editing and Scripting Information - Links only, NO Discussion

Recommended Posts

I am seeing a lot of questions in regards to scripting and other mission editing. I myself am not good at scripting but I know where to go for information in an attempt to get stuff to work. After trial and error with no luck then I would ask people or post in forums. Everyone needs to try researching for themselves first then when you cannot get it after going through the various info sites ask. Make sure you use the forum search and try different words before making a new topic. The following are links to various sites with lots of info. May need to search them as well.

for those that are not that fluent?

I was about to post a google translated version but it doesn't seem to work.

It appears to me to be about the base templates used in missions.

From under the first block of code:

Orange = Class name des Objects

Rot und Blau = [X, Y] Koordinaten vom Ankerpunkt des Markers aus gesehn.

Grün = Die Höhe

Braun = Die Ausrichtung (Azimut) des Objects

Orange- class names of objects

Red and Blue= the X, Y coordinates of markers.

???= elevation maybe?

Brown= azimut of object

That may seem obvious to some but it may not to others.

Sorry if you guys feel that this post isn't needed here. I am trying to help but if you feel as though it shouldn't be here contact a mod to have them delete it.
