This is a tutorial on how to place new items in the Map Editor. From Payne himself:

Basically I noticed a thread on Armada Universe forum requesting how to add additional items to the map editor. I had actually split out the ODF's from the main ODF directory for my own usage, so you'll find there are additional files in the zip which are for my mod.

No.6, before you start panicing I sugjest you take a good look at your existing A2 files in the odf folders (use notepad)

The file called editmenu.odf is the first level in the map editors menu system.

Also look at the files in the ships and stations folders.

Try downloading "westwoods big book of modding" (It's on this site somwhere).

It contains more info than you need, but it does tell you what most of those files do / are!

I gave the tutorial a basic overview months ago, and I don't think he included map editing since the tutorial mostly covers ship creation...
