There are some bug reports about missing cities. The problem appears to be that my "database" (it's really just a mission file with all of the cities and bases included) is old and incomplete. I am looking for a way to update it. Easiest is to simply get the objects into a mission file, but I'm not really sure how to do that. When I open my editor and look under "groups" it is empty. Any ideas as to the best way to regenerate fixed locations?
I'm not on my home computer, but perhaps you are looking for the Templates folder, (one level up in the folder hierarchy, i think) which contains all the objects for each map.
Are there any good examples of recon and artillery spot missions? In RoFCampaign these are handled by fly-bys or circle patterns, but the game has since been updated to make them real missions. I would like to make better use of in gmae capabilities to make these mission types more interesting.
For photo recon, these practice missions are available (perhaps you know about them, but i saw they aren't set as sticky, so who knows):http://riseofflight.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=20814
Two very good threads, but in French, about how to use photo recon and artillery gfx objects, are made by Richy here:
(i think google chrome, or translate.google.com can make them readable enough, unless of course you know French)
