X-Cam 1.0 for Arma 3 released

Recommended Posts


X-Cam 1.0 for Arma 3 released !

I am very pleased to inform you that I have completed work on X-Cam.
Until now, no significant bugs were found by the test team. Therefore there is no reason to delay the release of X-Cam.


X-Cam overview

X-Cam is an InGame 3D object placement tool with many different functions.
All these functions make it much easier to place objects on any terrain.

You can export your work as a terrain builder import file, but also as a mission or script file.
So X-Cam supports both mapmakers, as well as missionmakers.

X-Cam features

There are too many features and functions included to list them all here.


X-Cam installation

Simply watch the following video to learn to install X-Cam and how to start your first X-Cam session:

X-Cam manual

There is only a keyboard shortcut pdf file included and the whole user manual is only available as a 20 part tutorial video.
You can find all these videos by following this link:


X-Cam download




code34 for iniDBI to load and save all the internal X-Cam data like projects, favorites and prefabs.

Many thanks to poolpunk for this incredible work !!!


Killzone_kid has released a new version of "make_file.dll" (version 1.5) to make the file oparations more secure.
The only difference I could find so far is that you will see an additional dialog to confirm each "new" file operation.

So please try the new "make_file.dll" version 1.5 and tell me how it works. Thanks.

To download the new version follow this link:

Again many thanks to Killzone_kid for support :)
