Beginner Eden Editor Object Placement Tutorial

This video tutorial will help you learn to place objects using only the default Eden mission editor in ArmA 3.

If you have never used mission editor before, don't worry it is really easy and these tutorials will walk you through it.

We use PMC Opteryx Objects but what you learn in these videos can be used with default a3\ or any other custom addon objects as well.

First we place simple objects into a mission and save it and export to terrain builder import file. Then we use existing objects in a mission and create a custom composition out of those, finally we show how to select and place the custom compositions.

Youtube videos: Eden Editor HOWTO Place Objects, PMC Opteryx Objects and Eden Editor HOWTO Save and Place Custom Compositions.
