Asset Naming Conventions

Recommended Posts

What is the significance of the "_f" at the end of class names and models?  I know that "land_xxx" has to appear in the class name referencing a model called "xxx.p3d" for it to function properly when baked into a map.  Does the "_f" have a similar function?  Are there other naming conventions that we need to be aware of?  "i_", 'b_", and "c_" indicate factions.  Are these just to easily identify them, or are they script related?


I was fighting to get a custom model recognized in an Exile CfgInteractionModels class and tried (I thought) everything until I realized that any random model I used as a test would work as long as its name had the "_f" at the end.  I renamed my model and it now works. Now I need to go back and resurrect projects that I had given up on and see if that's all that's needed to make them work.

but does it have any actual function?

no. Just for organizational purpose.

Doesn't help that some modders think they should too make _f content...
