Hello everyone.

I made a no-mod-mission for ArmA 3 in the Eden editor and then wanted to add mods, so I saved it as a separate File.

Unfortunately, later, the modded version overwrote the unmodded version, so is there a way I can remove the mod requirement and get back parts of the original file?

Thank you already.

Well... is not that hard, but is not a quick and painless thing to do.

The way I handle things like that is:

-load the mission with all the required mod>change every modded unit to vanilla

-open mission.sqm with notepad++  and erase all unwanted dependencies from this list

    "A3_Weapons_F_Items",
...and so on.

(note:in red the non vanilla addons)

 

You also have to erase the unwanted addons from this list:

Spoiler

class AddonsMetaData
{
    class List
    {
        items=60;
        class Item0
        {
            className="A3_Structures_F_Ind";
            name="Arma 3 - Industrial Structures";
            author="Bohemia Interactive";
            url="https://www.arma3.com";
        };
        class Item1
        {
            className="A3_Structures_F";
            name="Arma 3 - Buildings and Structures";
            author="Bohemia Interactive";
            url="https://www.arma3.com";
        };
        class Item2
        {
            className="A3_Structures_F_Exp_Infrastructure";
            name="Arma 3 Apex - Infrastructure Objects";
            author="Bohemia Interactive";
            url="https://www.arma3.com";
        };

        class Item3
        {
            className="A3_Structures_F_Mil";
            name="Arma 3 - Military Buildings and Structures";
            author="Bohemia Interactive";
            url="https://www.arma3.com";
        };

...and so on..... NOTE: lets suppose you want to erase "class Item2"...delete all the block(in red the example)

REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE 

class AddonsMetaData
{
    class List
    {
        items=60;

ITEMS TOTAL NUMBERS TO WHATEVER IS LEFT AFTER ERASING THEM AND RE-NUMBER CORRECTLY THE "class item" OR IT WILL NOT WORK.

 

Hope this help man!
