Vehicle texture in mission file?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was wondering if there is anyway to add a custom vehicle texture to a Arma 2 OA server without using mods. Like make a SUV version that says "Server Admin" on the side that I can spawn in, but everyone elses looks like the normal one.

Yes it is possible to retexture cars.

This can be done with the Setobjecttexture command

_objectname setObjectTexture [0,"\pboname\texture.paa"]

I will Upload a small demo mission For you in a few min.

DemoMission

If you want to retexture the car here are a few steps to follow.

Step 1. Find the Origional paa files (this will make it more easy to make it as detailed as possible and it will save alot of time.)

Step 2. Change the paa to a png or other files that you can edit. (This can be done with textView2)

Step 3. Edit the png

Step 4. Change it back to a paa file (This can be done with textView2)

Step 5. Add it too your mission file

Step 6. Place this in the init of the car

_objectname setObjectTexture [0,"\pboname\texture.paa"]

This will work on most cars But not for all cars. This is the same for Skins for characters
