Dear Community,

 

we are very proud to present you a retexturing mod for ACE trenches. This mod takes the current ground texture and applies it on trenches. A preview of this texture can be seen already when placing the trench.

Unfortunately it is not possible to get the path to the current ground texture per command. Therefore this mod hardcodes the texture base paths and extensions of the textures per map.

 

Supported maps:

Mainly because it's a PITA doing this. Took some time until there was a (more or less) reliable solution to get the ground texture paths. This could be integrated into ace at a certain point but I need to discuss this with the ACE team as this is not a really clean solution.

But hey, at least it works and it looks fancy.

Such a simple addon, yet such a profound effect on any mission that we play. Our members have now started hunting for Entrenching Tools before every mission. +1, would recommend. Everyone should give this a try, it will improve your dynamic combat situation tenfold and adds a whole new layer to your tactical behaviour.

You need an entrenchment tool (which is basically a shovel) in your inventory. On some maps you are not able to place trenches because the ground config is misconfigured. This also applies to Prei Khmaoch Luong for example. But on all other maps listed in the first post it is definitely possible.

Sadly it is not possible for us to fix this without big afford. We will try to find the error and submit a pr to ACE.

 

Edit:

PR was created and will probably be included in an upcoming ACE version.

 

Edit2:

Has been merged and will be included in ACE 3.12.0

Lythium dont give the option for camuflage

 

This is intended as Lythium has neither suitable clutter nor would it make sense to camouflage your trench in the desert.

The guys over here at the 29th ID are really liking this addon.  Some, maybe a little too much :drinking2:
