Another option for creating a template is to use the merge template tool developed by 242Sqn_TheProf and Murdock_SE for the MP. First the 2 commanders must start with an identical map with the front markers already in place.
Each commander then gets a copy of the map and data file for use with the IL-2 FMB. Each commander is now free to place their units as described earlier in 3.1 – Creating a Template.
Once the 2 commanders have completed the template halves the administrator merges them back together using the merge function.
The merged template is then loaded into Scorched Earth and available for play.
