you add them with the "place spawn and colliders" (the P) tool just select that tool and right click anywhere and you get a list of stuff you can add

Actually the hotkey is T and the tutorial does tell you how to add colliders...

Have you tried reinstalling the program?

I already asked him in PM if he did and he said that he did reinstall. I seriously have no clue as to what the problem may be...

I reinstall soldat and how to act, but when I add the directory with the game the old custom scenery and other things you receive the same error.

So you opened up preferences and set the soldat directory to where soldat is?

try clicking on the little arrow by the X button in the scenery window and click on reload scenery list.

I have another interresting entry for the faq.
Recently I had some common bug. Granades were spawning in the places of medics. The reason was that I had too small granade spawns/objects, only 2. VirtualTT told me to put some more granade objects, and I did it. I placed 8 more granade spawns and problem was solved when i had 10 granade spawns(5 in alpha base and 5 in bravo base, before 1a-1b).

How to color pollies...

There are two ways to do it. Either select ve color you want, and then make your polies, or after you have your polly made select the color you want and use the coloring tool (on vertices, or use filling tool for whole polies). Make note of this, if you have any vertices/polygons selected only they will be taken into account, so make sure none are selected. ;)

PS Sorry for no screenshots but I'm on my phone + it's 5.00am for me (woke up in the middle of the night)

Placing spawns was in the first post. I guess I should add some anchors at the beginning :)

Question: How do I add player and object spawns and colliders?
Answer: Use the spawn tool (hotkey is T). For different types of spawns press right mouse button and select the type you want.



As for waypoints I suggest you read this guide.

I tried following your instructions to get scenery, but it didn't work. I went ot Edit-Preferences-and everything seems to be in order. Any help?

1. Make sure everything is the way it's supposed to be.
2. If you run PollyWorks right after installation try restarting your PC, sometimes it helps.
3. If nothing works try reinstalling.

Problem: some polys are unselectable, either by vertices or the poly itself even though i can see it, and have made it, this just seems to happen randomly

is there a fix for this or is this a map bug?
