Much, much thanks, Kevinp !
Just one remark: wouldn't it be possible to make pdf files with black and red text on white background ?
Like other yours tutorial I like so much. The reason is the easier printing of the tutorials on paper.

Tutorial colour

I didn't think people would want to print it. I have a wide screen so it's easy to have the tutorial open on one side while I have some other window open on the other side. I think it would be too difficult to change the colours now but I will take your suggestion into consideration for any future tutorials.

Re: Tutorial. Airfield Plates for beginners

Hi kevinp,

many thanks for this great and easy to understand tutorial! Much appreciated!

But one small request: could you (or someone else) please reupload the "Buggy_Buggy_IL2_Exporter" plugin for Gmax? The link to the old AAA thread you provided in the pdf obviously isn't working anymore.

Thanks in advance,

beckorinho

Re: Tutorial. Airfield Plates for beginners

@KevinP:
Only nowadays i started to learn your tutorial, tried it several times, but cannot see the first plate I created on any map. Would you be so kind and have a look at it, please ? Here it is :

//Export from: IL2 Export V2.5 by Fatduck
//Filename: Plane01.msh

; eof

EDIT:
On page 26 you have :
[Materials]
../plate0

while on page 28 there is:

[Materials]
..\plate0


with backslash. I tried both versions, but the plate refuses to appear on the map opened in MapBuilder.

Re: Tutorial. Airfield Plates for beginners

Is it possible to create a single plate airfield by a photo reconnaissance of the WWII time?

Re: Tutorial. Airfield Plates for beginners

Hi bigans

Yes it is possible.
DaveOD06 has done a few of these for his Marshall islands map. I helped him to get started but he should be an expert by now. Check it out-
