TP Groups collection

***UPDATED 9-5-2016 to Add new fighter groups with additional home and landing waypoints and also added better smoke effect groups.s. Manual updated to version 1.1 - PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD the TP Groups Collection at the link below***

***UPDATED 5-2-2016 to correct the Stuka dive bomber behavior and remove custom skins.***

This is a set of groups to simplify mission building. Each group is an object or objects such as an AA gun battery plus all the commands needed for it to work. These are packaged up as a single element called a group that can me imported into any mission and will work without any additional commands. All you'll need to do is move it to where you want and in some cases, such as road convoys lineup the start and end waypoints with the road. To help you I've included a Readme PDF with descriptions of each group and a tutorial on how to use them.

Awesome.
In selecting the motto... 'all for one and one for all'... I have done so because it expresses what should be the creed to every Fighter Pilot. Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

This looks like an outstanding piece of work that takes the hard work out of mission building. I am blown away by the detail and thought that must have gone into it.

I've spent the afternoon splitting the Moscow map stock entities (buildings, airfields, bridges, etc) into two sections for upper and lower halves of the Moscow map for quick loading into Mission editor.

Link is here

File sizes unzipped are approximately 2.5Mb for lower (souther) half and 3Mb for upper (northern) half. City of Moscow itself not included in either group.
