Eeeek. I'm going out on a limb here because I've looked around here all morning and not found quite what I'm looking for. I'm quite new to this, so please, be gentle.
I've downloaded and read dozens of FAQ's and tutorials, some are better than others but most of them are huge! This leads me to the following question.
Basically, what are the fundamental steps to mission making?
I'm currently working along the following lines. (This is for my Co-op mission, by the way)
1) Storyboard your mission.
1.1) Decide who starts where.
1.2) Decide what the objective(s) is/are.
1.3) Decide what might happen to waylay them.
2) Assemble your addons.
2.1) Test them (grrrr)
3) Put freindly units on the map.
4) Put enemy units on the map.
5) Add scripts, inits and triggers to 3 and 4.
6) Make briefings and intros.
7) Test, test and release.
