  1. Hey once again Jackal 😊 Thanks for replaying promptly as always, I actually just figured it out this morning after going down some rabbit holes and finding nothing over the past week, and found the issue was actually (as thought) inside Blender. I didn't even realise but i had a second UV layer activated, which was invisible but was always being rendered and picked as the 'active' layer whenever i exported the P3D model, so essentially it was exporting a sneaky broken UV map when I though for sure I was exporting my re-worked ones - because the texture worked and looked 100% perfect inside blender, but when I clicked the export button it changed the map, and then when it went into Arma 3 it was completely different, so i was loosing my mind for a little bit. But nevertheless its sorted, so a big thanks to you anyway for helping me out, again. Cheers, Tom.
  2. Hi All, I'm new to texturing and messing around with different mats, maps, etc with Arma, so i don't really know what's going on here. Currently, I'm trying to figure out why my model always has the same stretched and scuffed areas on the models texture even though they are all using different UV maps? I'll show some screenshots showing different textures and maps being used, but no matter what the same areas on the model are disgusting (ignore the actual textures, they're only there for testing this issue) Screenshots: https://imgur.com/a/smCrKS7 Furthermore, its almost like it hasn't even changed from the very first prototype UV I did - even though they're different maps that have been exported from blender (each model has a different and modified unwrapped blender .png), then into paint (to apply the crap textures), then changed into the .paa's for the game. At the top of the backpack models, they're constantly being stretched, I just don't understand why and how - Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers, Tom.
  3. Hey Mate, This may result in nothing or may be a dumb idea, but i have had issues with this exact situation where the config seems correct and all files are in order. The way i fixed it was removing the first \ from the syntax/file path. So instead of "\Nippel\data\Fucking_everything\Breath.paa" Simply try "Nippel\data\Fucking_everything\Breath.paa" Hopefully that works, otherwise i dont really know what is the issue here. Tom.
  4. Thanks guys! Really appreciate the response from both as usual and for the help. 🙂 Cheers, Tom
  5. Hey Jackal, Thanks for the response (becoming a trend now with me), you're spot on with what you said, it was the faces. I followed what you said and it worked like a charm, did exactly the right thing - however, since some of the faces were facing the right direction (about 50% of the model was correct) selecting all and then reversing fixes the other 50%, but also ruins the correct 50%. So, the next question - other than doing this one at a time face-by-face and slowly manually changing them until they're all correct - Is there a way to make all faces face ONE direction together? like all Down or all Up. If i can do this, then i can simply reverse all of them at once and they would all be the correct orientation. As always, big thanks again! - these problems are pretty simple things but they really create big problems for me. Cheers, Tom.
  6. Hi All, I've recently began to work on my custom backpack models again, and am trying to figure out why my models appear strange and distorted depending on the POV when you look at it from certain angles. I'll post an Imgur link so you can see the issues directly, but it seems that the 'far' side of the backpack from where you're looking appears fine, but the 'closest' side is transparent/missing? Also it is strangely symmetrical in the shapes of the model that show, i don't have any idea as to why this is, so any help would be very much appreciated. I suspect it is directly related to the model (I made in blender) and not so much the texturing, as it seems universal across all models. It almost acts as if the entire external model is reversed, like it is inside-out. Link: https://imgur.com/a/42TUOP3 Cheers all, Tom.
  7. Hey Jackal, Cheers for the response, but sadly the change you recommended doesn't work either, it acts exactly the same as before - exact same problems. Very strange. Any other ideas? Cheers for the help though, always appreciated! EDIT: I've fixed the issue now, it was a slight syntax error in the file path. This was wrong --- model = "\A3MOD\objects\BF\BF_Pack_Iteration1_OB.p3d"; This one works --- model = "A3MOD\objects\BF\BF_Pack_Iteration1_OB.p3d"; Glad I got it sorted, i knew it had to be something related to the file directory line structure - what an annoying little thing. Thanks for the help Jackal, you've helped me before so i appreciate it a lot! Cheers, Tom.
  8. Hi All - Hope everyone is doing well, I've got a little problem here that i didn't have 1 month ago. I recently after 4 weeks starting to work on my custom backpack mod again, and for some reason it seems that Arma now cannot find the icons or models for the packs. The config is correct (at least i think it is - it was working and the items DO appear in the Virtual Arsenal list, just no .paa files and .p3d models.) I don't really understand what has changed, but obviously something has happened. I will post the config below - but again, it is working because the mod and the mod contents appear in game, just no models or icons. It almost like the config model and picture paths to the objects is hidden or prohibited when loaded in game? I will add imgur images to show the file directories and example files. The mod is called A3MOD (for testing purposes i haven't changed it) then it has Addons, then the A3MOD PBO, then the contents (objects, icons, textures - textures aren't implemented yet though) Icons: Objects: CONFIG.CPP: class CfgPatches { class A3MOD { units[]={}; weapons[]={}; requiredVersion = 0.1; requiredAddons[]={}; author = "Tommy"; }; }; class CfgVehicles { class Land; class Man: Land { class ViewPilot; }; class CAManBase; class B_AssaultPack_cbr; ////////////////////////////BAGS///////////////////////////////// class BF_Pack_Iteration1_OB: B_AssaultPack_cbr { displayName = "BF - Assault Pack"; author="Tommy"; model = "\@A3MOD\Addons\A3MOD\objects\BF\BF_Pack_Iteration1_OB.p3d"; picture = "\@A3MOD\Addons\A3MOD\icons\bf.paa"; icon = "\@A3MOD\Addons\A3MOD\icons\bf.paa"; descriptionShort = "Small and lightweight assault pack perfect for small operations"; transportMaxMagazines = 8; transportMaxWeapons = 1; }; }; Any help would be GREATLY appreciated - perhaps its something right in front of me that i cannot see, or maybe i'm just blind. Cheers guys. EDIT: This is what appears in-game https://imgur.com/a/FMxed1W
  9. G'day Endet15, The reason i believe you're the only one hearing the sound, is because the effects of the addAction are Local. Meaning only the individual who completes the action, will get the results/effects (i.e the sound) Wiki page: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/addAction Notice the Effects are marked as L for Local. I recently discovered this as well, so no worries about this issue. One way to fix the problem is either you can use remoteExec on the addaction which will force the addAction effects to run on all connected clients whenever one person uses the action, or you can have the addAction execute a trigger, and then that trigger execute the say3D as trigger effects are always globalised so everyone should hear the sound. REMOTEEXEC: This is the way i have set-up my addAction for my COOP mission using remoteExec: (I put this inside the init field of a Switch object) [this,["Switch Off Generators",{ gen1_switch animateSource ["switchposition",1]; gen1_switch animateSource ["light",0]; gen1_switch setDamage 1; switched_off = true; },[],1.5,true,true,"","_this distance _target < 2"]] remoteExec ["addAction",0]; Perhaps this should work; i think i have written the syntax correctly but they may be one or two errors: [siren, ["SIREN ON", {siren say3D ["music1", 1000, 1];} ]] remoteExec ["addAction",0]; TRIGGER METHOD: (I think this works, tbh i haven't tested it though, just thought it up) The way i would do it via a trigger is to have the addAction run as you have it now, but alter the variable to a boolean like "enable_siren". I.E: "siren addAction [ "SIREN ON", { enable_siren = true; } ];" This will then switch the variable to 'true' which can be placed inside a triggers Condition field as (enable_siren), which will then once the action has been completed activate the trigger that will have "siren say3D ["music1", 1000, 1];" inside the On Activation field. This should work Server Side and for all players, as triggers are global. Hope one of these helps
  10. Hey guys, I just came across this page, and i must say that i'm really interested in the script you put up xxanimusxx, but sadly the link to download it no longer works (as expected being around 7 years old) - I am wondering if there is any way I could download the script, or get access to it potentially for a mission and to study the script? Thanks if possible, and if you even respond on a 7 year old thread lmao. Cheers, Tom.
  11. G'day Jackal, Thanks for the response mate, yeah i'm pretty sure you're spot on - after some time playing around with the objects and weights, i found that none of the objects i created separately from the main pack (just the way i've done it for this pack) which were later added onto the bag didn't assume automatic weight positions (which makes sense of course) but for some reason i thought they would've, like the clips and zips i thought would magically weight themselves based on what was around them. After adding the correct weight to the objects - using weight paint in blender - everything is working as intended 😄 So thank-you very much Jackal, if i didn't figure it out you would've helped me out big time nevertheless! Cheers, Tom
  12. Hi all, hope everyone is well. I don't really know whats going on here, so i'll explain it as best i can. Essentially, in game on my custom backpack whenever a unit equips it or the backpack moves, the main component of the pack works fine, as normal and as expected, the backpack config is fine, and everything other than the model is working. However, the physical clips that i use on the pack do not align with the bag correctly, and instead stay at ground level when a unit wears the pack. I'll have an image to show what i mean. Images (in-game screenshots) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2186054963 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2186054813 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2186054762 I'm just not sure why this is happening and what the fix is for this problem, and if anyone has any ideas, i'd be very grateful for help. I should also say i made the pack in blender, and made the clip as an individual object, than joined/merge it with the main bag object once i liked how it looked, so they should be considered all 'one big object' in the file - they are at least in blender, but it seems not in game?
  13. Hey Mate, got a similar issue as to the one you have with the game thinking i'm missing some PAA files, do you know what you did to fix the initial issue you had? Cheers if you got any ideas.
