  1. Getting back into terrain building and looking for a working config.cpp latest version for arma.
  2. D3F3CT3D

    2020 Config.cpp / [request]

    thanks for that it works, Do you know how to fix Black Ground Texture's I'm Getting these as I build.
  3. How Do I take the coordinates from Open Topography into Terra Incognita to get the exact same Bounding Box to make a perfect replica selection.. Open topography comes with these coordinates after selection. for example I highlighted the coords in red which i think I can port into Terra Incognita. Terra Incognita : I dont know how to input these values to match open topography.
  4. fixed it by creating a new map frame a few times and changing the height map. So far this is occurring on windows 10 64 bit. I did a fresh install of everything for Arma 3 Tools and Verified Cache through Steam which Validated 3 Files, Also used futuraToP to extract the game Data to make buldozer work for the updated scripts/road tool. I set Terrain builder to compatibility mode for windows 7 as Administrator checked. (It was working fine on windows 7 before , since I upgraded to win.10 I ran into problems with terrain builder being slow and unresponsive while loading up maps and closing dialog boxes etc.) ... Using L3DT to export terrain as 2048x2048 Asc or Xyz Format ( I prefer ASC which works best usually.) In Buldozer view The terrain is flat. In Terrain Builder Window, it's Flat without Colored Height Lines/Contours you would normally see on a working import ( Red,Orange Etc.) > I Tested to see if a BMP Works normally, and surprisingly it does work like Asc should be doing Like this BMP Import. Here's a picture of what It looks like when i import the terrain as Asc/Xyz. No Contours or lines for Elevation like Above. + Terrain is Flat with blocky water textures interrupting the "Smooth" coastline. And this is The result in Buldozer.

  5. Downloaded a Map 40x40km from Terra Incognita.... My Question is How to import this .Map ( Saved As OziExplorer from Terra Incognita) into Qgis. Thank you. - I followed this tutorial > https://pmc.editing.wiki/doku.php?id=arma3:terrain:satellite-texture-terra-incognita
  6. recently it started having these bugs / terrain glitches? config.cpp - https://pastebin.com/B5unxRcr project_packing - https://pastebin.com/taXeKPB5 binlog https://pastebin.com/dW09aznR
  7. I know nothing about coding , its a working bulletcam script But i would like it to have changes. Can somone edit this so it can do slow motion while the bullet is travelling..... and add infinite camera time as it seems to Exit Camera due to reasons when shooting Long distances. Maybe the bullet has a timer/expirey on its active state? , and also Have a Delay Period at the end to see the Target Shot that is Customizable to any number of Seconds. To Recap. the Changes. I want. Changes. - - - - player addEventHandler ["Fired", { _null = _this spawn { _missile = _this select 6; _cam = "camera" camCreate (position player); _cam cameraEffect ["External", "Back"]; waitUntil { if (isNull _missile) exitWith {true}; _cam camSetTarget _missile; _cam camSetRelPos [0,-3,0]; _cam camCommit 0; }; sleep 0.4; _cam cameraEffect ["Terminate", "Back"]; camDestroy _cam; }; }]; Credits:

    Bludclot's Buldozer Cursors.

    how did you do this ? ? ~ Thanks! Open Object Builder click the Color Pallet button next to the folder icon under Texture after selecting cursor and pressing " e "
  9. Going off this Youbtube video here: Seems easy enough to create some detailed terrain with some work. Never used mudbox before , And the extracting displacement maps are turning into Squares. If anyone has some knowledge for this would appreciate it .
  10. I believe I forgot to Export Mask which has a check for rvmats. derp derp? I delete everyhting in layers. > generate layers , wait.... > Run bat for converting to .paa Run buldozer > This Layers folder Does not Contain Any .rvmat File at all.?? 3,698 files including .paa and .png from generation. EACH .RVMAT Is directed Properly example :" texture = "arcticisland\data\beach_nopx.paa"; " Layers.cfg class Layers { class sumpf { texture = ""; material="arcticisland\data\concrete.rvmat"; }; class grass_green { texture = ""; material="arcticisland\data\grass_green.rvmat"; }; class concrete { texture = ""; material="arcticisland\data\concrete.rvmat"; }; class forest { texture = ""; material="arcticisland\data\forest.rvmat"; }; class beach { texture = ""; material="arcticisland\data\forest.rvmat"; }; class strdirt { texture = ""; material="arcticisland\data\strdirt.rvmat"; }; }; class Legend { picture="arcticisland\source\maplegend.png"; class Colors { /// color names should correspond to surface layer names sumpf[]={{255,255,0}}; strdirt[]={{0,0,255}}; grass_green[]={{0,64,0}}; concrete[]={{96,96,64}}; forest[]={{0,96,0}}; beach[]={{96,64,0}}; }; };

    Need Guidance

    This : http://terrain.party/ for heightmaps. Not sure how well it works for north america terrain. This for satellite texture downloads. https://greatmaps.codeplex.com/ Have you watched CaptCAPS youtube series? Thats where I started.
  12. Im not sure why its using my c:/ drive which is a size minimal ssd and will probably not be good for big projects. This is where its installed to on my games D: drive , I setup a blank folder " Arma 3 Tools [P] " where I want it instead.. Do i uninstall and reinstall somehow ?
  13. Thanks for that, Changed it to here : D:\Arma 3 Tools [WorkDrive] , and whats the reasoning behind this?
  14. I forgot to do this simple thing , Uncheck " Use Default " under Settings.
  15. Thinking of creating large terrain for air vehicles, what is the best for performance in the sampler settings. thank you Will this be correct for 3774 km'2 ? ----- i also want a decent satellite image , how can i tile it 4 times for each corner on 61440 ?

    High road

    buldozer can do small paths with the height editor, those are dirt mounds. there is some models that arma provides that you could use aswell.

    High road

    You cant raise terrain with shape files. Buldozer is for minor details on the heightmap. You should be using this, and sign up for pro-trial. http://www.bundysoft.com/L3DT/
  18. arma:terrain:grid_cell_size Terrain Grid and Cell Sizes Terrain grid and cell sizes explained by Snake Man, PMC. If you do not know how large your terrain is, or someone is reporting on the forums that he made this and that sized terrain, here is the table to once and for all explain to you how big (or small) is a terrain of certain specification. Grid size is the important factor as OFP/ArmA (and so far that we've heard ArmA 2 also) engines only handle power of two grid sizes. Grid size Cell size km x km Square km 4096 50 204.8 41943.04 4096 40 163.8 26843.55 4096 30 122.8 15099.49 4096 20 81.9 6710.886 4096 10 40.9 1677.722 4096 8 32.7 1073.742 4096 6 24.5 603.9798 4096 4 16.3 268.4355 Grid size Cell size km x km Square km 2048 50 102.4 10485.76 2048 40 81.9 6710.8864 2048 30 61.4 3774.8736 2048 20 40.9 1677.7216 2048 10 20.4 419.4304 2048 8 16.3 268.435456 2048 6 12.2 150.994944 2048 4 8.1 67.108864 Grid size Cell size km x km Square km 1024 50 51.2 2621.44 1024 40 40.9 1677.7216 1024 30 30.7 943.7184 1024 20 20.4 419.4304 1024 10 10.2 104.8576 1024 8 8.1 67.108864 1024 6 6.1 37.748736 1024 4 4 16.777216 Grid size Cell size km x km Square km 512 50 25.6 655.36 512 40 20.4 419.4304 512 30 15.3 235.9296 512 20 10.2 104.8576 512 10 5.1 26.2144 512 8 4 16.777216 512 6 3 9.437184 512 4 2 4.194304 Grid size Cell size km x km Square km 256 50 12.8 163.84 256 40 10.2 104.8576 256 30 7.6 58.9824 256 20 5.1 26.2144 256 10 2.5 6.5536 256 8 2 4.194304 256 6 1.5 2.359296 256 4 1 1.048576 And so far I've never seen anybody do smaller than 256 grid size terrains, but maybe at this point you can already calculate yourself how small those terrains would be. All BIS made terrains were as follows: Name Grid size Cell size km x km Square km OFP islands 256 50 12.8 163.84 ArmA and ArmA 2 terrain information has been disabled now as the info we get from WRP doesn't compare with what we have ingame. For example ingame Chernarus is 15.3km x 15.3km in size, however the WRP says grid 2048 and cell 30m… Stay tuned :) arma/terrain/grid_cell_size.txt · Last modified: 2009-06-24 10:42 (external edit) Original link: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:OFomozroRkAJ:pmc.editing.wiki/doku.php%3Fid%3Darma:terrain:grid_cell_size&num=1&hl=en&gl=ca&strip=1&vwsrc=0
  19. The page is not loading for me at all , but i changed the description.
  20. How do i properly import CUP - Core Objects with the Required Addon Text in the main config. cup core - http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=583496184 I put it in P/CUP/ Rocks like in the picture , loaded up buldozer and it sais " error cannot place object " Second: For this mod as a requirement where do i put the RequiredAddons text correctly on the Config file? is it like this ? requiredAddons[] = {"A3_Data_F","A3_Roads_F","A3_Structures_F","A3_Map_Data"}; but instead to this? requiredAddons[] = {"A3_Data_F","A3_Roads_F","A3_Structures_F","A3_Map_Data","P:\cup"};

    class land_garbage_metal: House*_F* ???? House and House_F are two different Folders, Try matching them up first. and for Configs.cpp I need to know which config / directory it is in to make sense of it atm. + follow this config layout And to go with that you need to in addition add another line under class cfg vehicles to your main project config.cpp p:/yourproject/config.cpp

    Edit: Got it working There is no // at the end , With the Config under CA/Structures you have to make the brackets like this code below and it should be working , Near the end code. ---- ITS WEIRD because the Original code comes with //}; which is incorrect for packing... For me Addonbuilder packing the buildings fine without adding class names, but it wont pack/show the dam roads. - - - its an easy fix but its manual from what i learnt , you should try the following: your wrp config, ie main config in the project folder add this near top where it has blank cfgvehicles, and cfgworlds :::replace the names with your models and for P / ca / structures / config.cpp ::: you add some more lines like this :::::::Although something with the brackets at the bottom of this last part is messing me up and i cant progress. and add as many as you need class cfgVehicles { class House_F; class land_WW2_Countryside_house_1_damaged: House_F { model = "\ww2\terrains_m\structures\buildings_m\ww2_countryside_house_1_damaged.p3d"; }; class land_WW2_Apteka_ruins: House_F { model = "\ww2\terrains_m\structures\buildings_m\ww2_apteka_ruins.p3d"; }; class land_Castle_01_tower_F: House_F { model = "\a3\structures_f\Dominants\Castle\Castle_01_tower_F.p3d"; }; class land_Slum_House01_F: House_F { model = "\a3\structures_f\households\slum\Slum_House01_F.p3d"; }; class land_Stone_HouseBig_V1_ruins_F: House_F { model = "\a3\structures_f\households\stone_big\Stone_HouseBig_V1_ruins_F.p3d"; }; class land_Cmp_Hopper_F: House_F { model = "\a3\structures_f\ind\ConcreteMixingPlant\cmp_Hopper_F.p3d"; };
