  1. I retextured the csat jet. One version is black. It's not an unreasonable darkness but the smdi makes it look super dirty and it sucks. I've never had so many texture issues in any game more than this one. It's like they made separate beautiful islands with zero thought of how it effects object textures. The Green they use for all Nato clothing and equipment and vehicles I just about the worst green color I've ever seen. SO they dirty and fade the textures in order to blend. This jet is a good example. The gray hex sucks in game. it looks like it's been buried and not as good as the actual texture. Here you can see, The smdi has a brownish dirt shine. The black in the picture has no dirt. Its just a light black with dark lines. This jet in particular has a terrible look in the game. Without the shit smdi they used, the real textures don't look bad at all. If I change the smdi, how can I get the game to use my new one? Or what else can I do? Thanks
  2. This top part is an update. I have NAVY units that should normally be inside a ship. But 8 out of 10 units that I place wear random sunglasses. I looked up and down for a solution. Most are just O_soldier_F that they inherit from. They all look stupid. I've tried different things like eventhandlers etc from bi. Then I found out CBA has a random facewear on top of that. I don't know if I disabled the CBA or not because one is always working unless both are disabled. Here are some things I tried. CBA_facewearList[] = {}; CBA_facewearList[] = {"", 1}; headgearList[] = {}; facewearList[] = {}; class EventHandlers { init = "(_this select 0) setVariable ['BIS_enableRandomization', false]"; }; This one I tried this but got eventhandler not defined. class EventHandlers: EventHandlers { init = "if (local (_this select 0)) then {[(_this select 0), [], []] call BIS_fnc_unitHeadgear;};"; }; so I did this: I had to create a separate unit, below, named Navy_soldier just to add the eventhandler class because without it, the init said eventhandler was not yet defined. class Navy_Soldier: O_T_Soldier_F { class EventHandlers; }; class CSAT_Navy_Personnel: Navy_Soldier { author="Victim9l3"; _generalMacro="CSAT_Navy_Personnel"; scope=2; side=0; faction="CSAT_Navy"; vehicleClass="CSAT_NAVY_MEN"; editorSubcategory = "EdSubcat_NAVY_Men"; displayName="NAVY Personnel"; model="\A3\Characters_F_Exp\Syndikat\I_C_Soldier_Camo_F.p3d"; uniformClass="CSAT_Navy_maru_Hex_Uniform"; class EventHandlers: EventHandlers { init = "if (local (_this select 0)) then {[(_this select 0), [], []] call BIS_fnc_unitHeadgear;};"; }; backpack=""; hiddenSelections[]= I am out of ideas and this is the last thing I need to do to release the mod. In worst case, I might try reskinning a pair of glasses then giving it a transparent skin. That way the goggles are worn but not seen. Thanks
  3. I will have an update today. I'm waiting for a reply for a gunner question. There will finally be Pacific skins for the CSAT Orca, Kajman, and Taru. I don't know why bi never did them. Pacific CSAT only have that terrible verticle take off thing that is almost unusable. But the Orca will have snow hex, white, gray, tan camo, green camo. Kajman will have gray, gay hex, snow hex, green. Taru will have Snowhex, Grayhex, Gray, pacific hex, and Black (not bis purple). Actually I really love how the gray looks. I don't like the Taru that much, but seeing it a gray transport version made me love it. I'm waiting for help with changing the Taru loadmaster. I can't figure out how to switch him out with my snow hex and pacific camo instead of that yellowhex. aefak1989, What do you mean reskin the urban camo? Change them to another color? or what? I do have another mod already out from before Apex, although I may need to update download. But I have slightly different urban hex. I replaced some blue on uniforms with gray and left the blue hex pattern. I reskinned bi original hex, I added woodland hex, semi-arid hex (like the pilots), urban hex. All equipment too. I also have 2 guerilla factions from FIA units. The opfor guerillas are backed by CSAT and so they have CSAT equipment and camo. No AAF camo. The other faction is independent and have other camos. After this update I may update those. I do have more guerillas too. That are not snow. Just better than FIA or Syndikat. Since Contact, I am giving them some of the contact weapons. And I will upload to steam. I have never done that before but I planned it. It's probably easier once I learn it. I will also create a download for just the helicopter skins. That way anyone can put them in their own mods. Having Pacific camo for the csat helicopters is a must. And most of all, after this update, what requests might you have. I know that a lot of the community has dropped off since bi stopped taking the game forward. So I don't want to make stuff no one will use. Plus anyone making campaigns or missions, if you need something reskinned to help your make your missions stand out a little more. Let me know
  4. I have a mod that reskinned taru helicopters and with new pilots. I have pacific camo versions of pilots and taru. I am having a problem changing the loadmaster. I tried a few things I found from the taru config. It has turrets and that is where the code calls for the loadmaster. I've tried copying some of the texts but I always get a undefined class for one thing or another. On a side note, I wanted to find out how to give vehicles like the armed offroad, or lsv to have separate driver and gunners. Rather than have driver and gunner clones, I would like to make the gunners a little more protected without having the driver squeeze into driver spot with all kinds of gear. Here is my config code for one taru. Can someone show me what I need to add to change to my helicrew member. Hopefully I can figure out from that how to change offroads. But taru is done already so I appreciate any help.

  5. *********I Will put updates at the top here so you don't have to scroll down to find them. UPDATE 9/21 New CSAT Navy units and LDF Kuma and Hind. My last update ended up not updating. I had internet problems. So nothing was updated. Today I added only LDF and Navy units. All of the others will be updated today or tomorrow. Those will be mostly helicopters and crew, and pilots. And anyone is free to use any thing they want from my stuff. As of today. File Factory links, then I will put them on steam workshop. LDF link is here: http://www.filefactory.com/file/26g2kvmqr2kh/VCTM_LDF.pbo CSAT NAVY Since most are unarmed and not combat units, I made up different units based on uniforms. Engineers, medics, have toolkits and medikits in leg packs instead of backpacks. Officers also have hand guns in leg packs. They look stupid aiming handguns all the time. So it's kind of like holstering. Inludes a few colors of pilot and crew helmets. I have a pararescue medic in pilot uniform. and rescue symbols on pilot helmets. I included gray and gray hex versions of Taru, Orca, and Kajman. Also a medevac orca. Link: http://www.filefactory.com/file/26x27t1tkedf/CSAT_NAVY.pbo ///////////////////////// I have a few projects that I'm working on that are near completion. I thought I should put them here in order to hopefully get some feedback before I spend more time finalizing something that might need to be different. . Right now i have 3 projects that are close to finish. The first is my CSAT SNOW mod. I don't have a huge category of snow maps downloaded to test with. Plus, there are so many differences between them that finding commonality might take a while. . Some snow is white, some blue, some have really bad lighting in order to give a colder look (i assume). A great example is my green vehicles. In the pictures they are a dark green, But on Malden they are extremely light green. The white is blinding. So i'm hoping some of you can test it on your favorite snow islands using whatever settings you use. Then take pictures and/or send feedback so I can adjust as needed. That way i can make final changes that will make the mod more user friendly. The snow mod has the following: -CSAT armor (not Sochor yet). 2 different skins with 3 different camonet and cage types. -White Ifrit and Qilin - Infantry 2 types of uniform camo white and gray hex, white green hex 3 infantry types - Use AAF helmets 2 advanced tactical assault force - use protector helmets 2 commando tyes - use soft headgear 2 rapid intervention force - use assassin helmets 2 Viper infantry -most vests -most backpacks -alot of different balacalavas -many helmets and headgear -snow gun textures - 3 ground camo nets (2 diff whites, 1 green) They are located in props, structures (altis) --They are all using Urban NVGoggles. I couldn't find a way to retexture NVGoggles so Urban csat was closest fit for now. -This mod is using Bi CSAT units. Their uniforms made most sense for cold conditions. I might add AAF soldier types too. But for now, these seemed best. Download: http://www.filefactory.com/file/3bkyydignqej/CSAT_SNOW.pbo -more to come.. Within a week or 2 I should have more stuff added. Coming this week. -I have 4 skins for Orca (gray, white, snowhex, snowcamo) Also pilots and crew. Also soon, Anagra Taru Kajman So please test it out on different snow maps and environments that you like using. Please show pictures with opinion so i can fix things before completed ////////////////////////////// SNOW GUERILLAS MOD -I made this in order to give opponent against CSAT SNOW mod -This will get bigger with vehicles and other soldier types. -For now this includes 1 soldier type that seemed a good fit for cold. -various equipment Download: http://www.filefactory.com/file/93vuoqx408d/VCTM_GUERILLAS.pbo /////////////////////////// CSAT INFANTRY MOD AAF solider types retextured for CSAT to give them normal soldier looks Viper units and special units with AAF and NAto gear options. Download: http://www.filefactory.com/file/626o33j8r8tv/CSAT_INFANTRY.pbo
  6. You have wrong models. You have your units with uniform models instead of unit models For example: universerp_aums_off_duty model="\A3\Characters_F\Civil\c_poloshirtpants.p3d this is correct. The one below it is wrong: universerp_aums_recruit model="\A3\Characters_F\Common\Suitpacks\suitpack_universal_F.p3d This is incorrect. this model is for the uniform only. It should be the model for B_Soldier_F. IT's probably \A3\Characters_F\blufor...... not common. I don't know off the top of my head. But your rangemasters are all correct, I think. A good recommendation, that I use, I try not to include anything that I am not changing. If you have B_Soldier_F as your inheritance, If you don't change the model, just leave it out. I don't include modelSides[]={3,2,1,0}; either. The only time I include model on my units is if I had an inheritance for FIA units. They don't have a repair unit. so I can inherit a O_repair but I don't want the csat model, so I would find which FIA model I wanted. You also have no faction selected. Here is an example of what I leave in. author="Victim9l3"; _generalMacro="Guerrilla_Snow_SquadLeader1"; scope=2; side=0; faction="VCTM_GUERILLAS"; vehicleClass="VCTM_Guerrilla_Fighters"; editorSubcategory = "EdSubcat_Guerrilla_Snow_Infantry"; displayName="Guerrilla SquadLeader1"; uniformClass="Guerrilla_para2_uniform_D"; I hope this helped.
  7. I see a lot of packing error threads, But I don't see any tutorial or checklist on packing. Is there a checklist or format I can look at? For instance. When packing do I start at my project folder or my map folder. -My proj folder/name is victim913 -in that folder I have my map folder "victim913_siege", and I have cfgclutter.hpp, cfgSurfaces.hpp, config.cpp. -In my victim913_siege folder is my data and source folders and I have "victim913_victim913_siege.hpp", and "victim913_victim913_siege"------but I don't know if that is where those 2 files (hpp and wrp) go. -The rest should be in right place. I tried mikero's pboproject to pack but I don't know what settings I need to adjst. I tried packing starting at my project folder and ended up with an error. I also tried from my island folder but error came quickly. Any help appreciated. Oh also, if I used any other mods like jbad or cup, Do I just let everyone know that those mods are required? Or do I need to include them in my island?
  8. Its easiest to see with the Laws of War content. For example, the laws of war gave us new tents and tent covers and stretchers etc. The problem is that only ONE version of all of those are available. For example. The tents. only IDAP versions are available. No CSAT, NATO, AAF, etc are available. Actually only IDAP versions are available for all items. There is only 1 type of tent, I think its the closed one. I saw that the tent covers point to the IR masking covers from Tanoa, but only that csat texture is available. None of the LOW options show up. When comparing, I see that other items like those cargo houses that came with standard arma 3, each texture has it's own p3d model. So I looked at the laws of war stuff and there is only 1 p3d file for each object. So I wonder if bi changed the way the p3d's work with the different textures. Having the option to change textures in eden editor might be the cause. Also tanks have changed. In TB I sometimes import a tank or vehicle so that I have a reference while making my map. I was using The AAF tank. Without changing anything, the tank now shows up with camo nets on it. When I look at the pbo or look at library from TB, there is no difference. Meaning that there is no options for different versions or anything. So the standard p3d model comes with camo nets now. So my question is, how do I get access to the other textures? I know for a fact that I wanted the green stretchers for and a few objects from LOW like tents and stuff in my map. Thanks for any help. p.s. Since updating my bulldozer, I am constantly reminded to save. It never did that before. Its a good idea but seriously, every 5 minutes I get told. How do I shut it off? I tried F1 and going into game or video options but I cant make anything out. All the options are crammed together, some on top of each other and some boxes have nothing in them because the words are floating around on top of or under others..

    Problem after problem tb/bd

    THANK YOU!!! :) That did it. I opened tools, Project drive management, install bulldozer.....It updated, and .....let there be light. I can't thank you enough. Every single time I post a queston, you answer and it works. Thank you. Is there a way to turn down the blackness of the cursor in bd. The last working bulldozer I had, had a completely transparent cursor. just a white box. I saw the link for other cursors but I am happy with the cursor, I just wish I could see through it.

    Problem after problem tb/bd

    I did use arma3p. and updated it yesterday. The extraction was not the problem. I used TB and bulldozer successfully after the arma3p update. I used tb and bd, After I finished for the day, I shut down computer. I turned computer back on, opened steam, opened TB, I clicked on connect to bulldozer, I got the v:000...error. At the same time steam also showed a window saying arma 3 failed to start error 86. So I don't know what problem would cause this when the only thing I did was restart my pc. It looks like a steam error. I will try reinstalling steam but it says it is up to date.. Maybe you can tell me.....In terrain builder under tools, preferences, What do I need to change? The only thing I changed was the bulldozer exe path. I changed it from p: bulldozer exe to C: arma3 exe. Everything else stayed the same. Maybe I need to change something else? or maybe that wrong.
  11. I'm sorry to keep bugging, but I have used TB and BD successfully for 2 years without a single problem. In the last week, I have had one after another. After my other issues were solved, I was using TB and bull for a few hours. I restarted my computer and now I start getting these 2 errors. error v;000065432 and error 86. I searched online for those errors and did everything I could find that was suggested. I verified the integrity of my tools and it fixed 2 files....It always has to fix 2 files... Then I go remount p drive, I open TB and all my settings have been defaulted. I had to turn the sat tex, atts back on, I also had to change the bulldozer.exe to start from C:...arma3.exe.... I think that's the only thing that changed from before. I try to start bulldozer, it zooms in to a spot on map and then gives me error without opening BD. I repeated but this time I refreshed from source, my 3 raster layers, I rebuilt terrain, re generated layers and started BD and it still gives error. I have verified integrity so many times.. I have NO problem playing the game. So I don't get it. I am almost done with most of my map and I keep getting stuck. All I did was restart my pc and it changed everything. in tb I have preferences for bulldozer. the only change from default is my path to bulldozer exe. instead of p: bulldozer exe I have c; arma3 exe. It's been so long, I don't remember changing anything else. and a side note, just in case, I have arma 3 workshop content that is in mid download. I don't have data to waste on those mods at the moment, so I just keep it paused. But theose mods have nothing to do with it. I don't currently use those. Any help please. I've spent double the hours fixing it compared to how little I had it working this week. maybe 2 successful hours and 15 fixing hours it seems. Thanks

    bulldozer stops early

    I got it working. arma3p has an update. after updating it worked. thanks

    bulldozer stops early

    Thanks, you are correct, it IS common knowledge, but as I said above, I did not use the arma tools afterall. I used arma3p like you suggested. And my terrain builder path is exactly the same as it says in that link you supplied. My exe for bulldozer is the arma3.exe in C where the game is, not bulldozer exe in the P; I don't remember where I got that info but it all worked until now. Besides me moving the files and putting them back, and then I used the arma3p to "freshen up" with all bi updated pbo's, nothing is different. The only difference between it working and it not working was the Tank Dlc and the tools update. I did see that there was an arma tools update that got rid of a TB error, according to the sitrep. Maybe that interfered?
  14. I just updated tools and tanks dlc. Either the update ruined something or a problem backing up or etc... Problem: I open my island in TB just like normal. Everything is identical to previous save. But when I connect to bulldozer, problem. First, I used to get an error warning immediately, I click ok and it loads bulldozer. Then I got 2 other errors that I just "tab, enter" and both go away and everything works. NOW, I get no error and bulldozer finishes loading in 2 seconds Nothing but white terrain. Buildings are gone but I can still click on them. As if they were there. I notice that bulldozer is ready after the second init, which I think says loading surfaces, then stops. It used to take about 40 seconds, showing it loading layers and loading objects etc. but no longer. So something is causing it to finish before loading the rest. Since my last good save, besides updating. I tried using project drive management in tools. I never did that before. I saw that TB added support to jets dlc. So not knowing this was option, I clicked on extract game data. hoping the jets dlc would extract to p;. but it showed an error. So INSTEAD I saw that they were no longer ebos so I used mikeros tools to extract like normal. Another possible mistake. I moved my a3 folder in p; to a separate folder in case extract deleted something I needed. I also moved my project folder and terrain builder folder just in case. When I decided to do my normal way, I tried moving the a3 folder back. The first time I did it it moved everything in 1 second. Putting it back it said 1 hour. so I stopped in mid transfer. Undo was not an option. so I had partial folders in both places. So I used mikero tool to re extract all fresh. I figured since game has updated, it might be good anyway. It worked because TB everything was fine. Everything in TB seems to be correct. Paths still same, everything in folders was still the same. I even rebuilt terrain, refreshed my raster layers from source, rebuilt, generate layers etc. Everything is the same. But bulldozer stops loading. Please help. Thanks.
  15. My map was created using L3dt. Im wondering if anyone has any tips to make the satellite texture look real. Most maps have a real sat map that has different colors, textures, roads, etc. on them while new terrain is pretty much 1 color. For this, I am not talking about the mask with layers textures etc. I notice diff shapes and patterns that are difficult to replicate while still looking authentic. different fields, farms, forests, etc. I know how to do this in gimp/photoshop but i'm sure some of you have good suggestions that you worked through. Again, I don't need a painter tool, just a technique or something. The painter tool suggested to me will be good for the mask textures. I thought of adding this question to my thread for mask creation, but I thought this separate thread might make it easier to search for others. Thanks
