Could somebody take a look at my config and let me know the problem thanks.

Recommended Posts

Ive been away from Arma 3 for around 6 months but juse before I took a break I have just managed to finally get a handle on modding.

But upon coming back a few days ago I was really impressed with the VR arsenal addition and instantly thought this Is a really useful tool for checking out modded content and a good tool for viewing your own stuff to check its ok.

So I fired up a mod I mad and I can see the mask is selectable in the headgear options.

The mask is called otocamo mask. config below.

But now this time i Want to add a hockey mask I sculpted in zbrush, and I used the headgear.hpp template thats in the samples folder juast incase there were any updates, and it looks like more options available to the item I made the necessary changes the path to the model but its just not showing as an option anywhere in VR arsenal , Can anybody see what ive missed.


class HeadgearItem: InventoryItem_Base_F


allowedSlots[] = {BACKPACK_SLOT, HEADGEAR_SLOT}; /// defines where can be the cap placed, it is small enough to fit in backpack

type = HEADGEAR_SLOT; /// standard slot for the cap is on head

hiddenSelections[] = {}; /// default caps don't have any changeable selections

hitpointName = "HitHead"; /// what hitpoint is covered with the cap to have additional protection


class H_Test_Headgear: ItemCore


scope = 2; /// scope needs to be 2 to have a visible class

displayName = "Test Headgear"; /// how would the stuff be displayed in inventory and on ground

picture = "\A3\characters_f\Data\UI\icon_H_Cap_blk_CA.paa"; /// this looks fairly similar

model = "\Hockey Mask\Hockey Mask.p3d"; /// what model does the cap use

hiddenSelections[] = {"camo"}; /// what selection in model could have different textures

hiddenSelectionsTextures[] = {"\a3\characters_f\common\data\capb_police_co.paa"}; /// what texture is going to be used

class ItemInfo: HeadgearItem


mass = 10; /// combined weight and volume of the cap, this equals to single magazine

uniformModel = "\Hockey Mask\Hockey Mask.p3d"; /// what model is used for this cap

allowedSlots[] = {UNIFORM_SLOT, BACKPACK_SLOT, VEST_SLOT, HEADGEAR_SLOT}; /// this cap is so small and flexible that it fits everywhere

modelSides[] = {6}; /// available for all sides

armor = 0; /// this cap doesn't provide any protection

passThrough = 1; /// this cap doesn't provide any protection

hiddenSelections[] = {"camo"}; /// what selection in model could have different textures
