    With the 3 US planes now available, and with the Normandy and Ardennes maps, and after being intimidated for years by it., I'm going to attempt mission building on the Western front..I guess I'll need to learn some graphics so I can use appropriate US insignia.Peaae, kind sirs, I need help. First, is there a good manual on this?. Mudmovers has a "Mission Builder 101" but it starts right out without any preliminary setup instructions.( I am a bit of a plodding thinker and like to go step by careful step). I've fumbled around with it , but when I first hit "fly" the image is reversed, with the ground below the sky. Can somebody offfer suggestions?. Sorry for being so elementary, but that's me. In CFS2 I did some fairly successsful building, but have forgotten how. Thanks.

    Sounds like you have not selected any aircraft as Player aircraft in the tick box.




    did you see this guide to FMB:

    If the plane is on the map, the tab should be there. If you can't see the tab, click & drag on the edge of the object viewer box and make it larger. (Sideways preferably). Alternatively there should be some "arrow" button thingies in that corner of the box. Click on the one pointing right....

    The same way you place any object
    Ctrl & Left Mouse Button at the same time with the plane you want chosen in the object viewer box......

    You need to look here

    Happens to me too. Hit "Shift+F2" or "Ctrl+F2" depending on which side you want to see first.
