How to set the player as a ship other than Alpha 1?
Title says it all. I've seen this done in other campaigns, and I'm sure the method is simple, but I haven;t been able to figure this out. How do I set the player as, in my case, Alpha 2?

Should be in Ship editor - Set as player ship
You can also change the starting wing name in Mission Specs if you want the player to be like, Omega 3 (mmm delicious unsatrurated fatty acids) or something.

If "set as player ship" doesn't work properly in FRED (I've had it refuse to do anything), temporarily setting the mission as multiplayer should work around it. Just make sure to un-player-ify Alpha 1 and set it back to singleplayer :P

 It's also not difficult to do in Notepad, if that's easier.
