it will be 8 player any way but that means that you can not have a nop race

alt and click double click then name it Camer_X (x being the player number)

Alt & g

Say if the map is called bob send them the files
When you have sent these they will have the map just make sure you save it in C:program filesactivisionfleet operationsbzn

1) A map always is a 8 player map. tto make a map with less then 8 players go into the options dialog in the map editor (pressing ctrl+r while pointing on empty space) and set the unwanted teams to empty
2) As eufnoc mentioned, you will have to place "pins". you can place them by holding the alt button down and leftclick with your mouse where you want them. Then doubleclick on one to change it's name.
3) Yep, you can reenable the grid by pressing alt+g. you can also do so in skirmish or anywhere else.
4) if you host a game with a map your opponents do not have, it will automaticaly transfered to them. if this should fail you can copy the files with the name of the map from your BZN directory to the BZN directory of your friends.
