After 2 years of playing IL-2, I finally decided to try making my own missions, and I have a couple basic questions for all you experts.

1) When I place a static object on the map, such as a building, how do I rotate it to face the direction I want it to?

2) If I have a bunch of vehicles, say some tanks, trucks, and cycles that I want to move together as a convoy, is there some way I can select them as a group to set waypoints for all of them at once?

1. Numpad keys in map view (1, 4, 7 for left, 3, 6, 9 for right), middle mouse button and drag or numpad in 3D view.

2. No

Although Tully was correct that you can't make a column of vehicles there are pre-made columns availalbe. Here is where you can find the list as well as a good basic FMB Guide:

Use waypoints to make them travel.
