First of all, you need to get MapView, which allows to edit the game's maps, including the UFOs.

Once you install it (better use a separate copy of the vanilla game), just have a look at the vanilla UFOs, that will give you some ideas about what to do next.

Here a description for Route Nodes i made a while back when explaining some stuff towards another Mapview new guy:

We really should make a description with screenshots and such on how to add maps, create new ones and resize them, also add new terrain files etc..

If you guys set something up like that on the forum, I'd be willing to port it up to the wiki if necessary.
