  1. Apologies if this has already been asked, but would it be possible in the future (I know it's a lot of programming resources) to make it so that the Sniper pod currently modelled on the gripen can be applied to different aircraft to give them inbuilt cameras?
  2. So I'm working with a colour map, which is normally meant to look like this: However, when saving into .paa with texview 2, it keeps compressing with DXT1, creating this incredibly ugly green splotch effect next to the scratches: In an effort to fix it, I tried using ARGB8888, but it seems that texview just ignores those settings and uses DXT1 instead. I also tried mounting the texture directly onto my model as .tga, but addon builder just processes the textures into DXT1 compressed .paas anyways. I can confirm that the texture has the _co suffix. So, is there any way I can maintain the texture without getting these godawful green splotches?

    NIArms Release Thread

    Toadie is probably the most proactive mod dev in terms of updating and fixing his mods after updates, so you know that they're probably going to be fixed very soon after any update that might break them
  4. He's one of the mod devs

    If you're using the CUP pack and you load a CUP M249 first, then you will have this problem, it looks like CUP didn't rename their skeletons when toadie gave them the M249s
  6. Why exactly did you put AIM-54s on the outer racks of the F-111 when the F-111 had no ability to mount the missile or to guide it because it had no radar? (Are you trying to make an F-111B?)

    The compatibility PBOs come with their source code so there's no obstacle to people learning a little bit of scripting magic and doing it themselves

    Bo-105 Helicopter

    The HOT-1 is completely fly-by-wire
  9. If you do want to include DDR guys, I have an M1956 mesh sitting around that I'll get to... eventually...
  10. Bolt-action rifles of that time did have zeroing to that kind of range to allow for semi-accurate volley fire, and it's firing a full power 30-06 cartridge, it should have plenty of kick.
  11. What is it? It's an elf hat. Admittedly, it's a bad one, but this is literally the first model I ever made in 3ds max/exported to object builder/made normals for. The textures are awful, the model looks too rigid, and you can only see the faintest hint of the normalmap in very light conditions, but it's an elf hat, and it's appropriate for the time of year. I might release more stuff, maybe. Thanks to: - Toadie2k4 for massive amounts of help with UVunwrapping, normalmapping and overall being a very cool guy. - Facepunch Arma for "testing" this stuff.

  12. I know this might sound a bit selfish, but I think it's easy to do and fills a place in CUP (plus I'm too lazy to set up the development environment): Would it be possible to get a variant of the SOV Humvee with an M2? Adding it seems like it'd be easy to do, just replaced the model and some memory points, and a small config edit. Plus, it adds a much more balanced option for SOF teams.

    Real Armor Mod

    Hey, quick question: how is performance calculated in regards to KE rounds? I've taken a look through the config and noticed that the caliber values seem to use the same maths as the HEAT penetrators, but shells also have different hit values. I'm guessing that the hit values are stated to describe damage to soft vehicles, and caliber in regards to penetration, and if that were correct it would make for a pleasantly easy thing to configure, but I'm looking for confirmation as to how the system works and I understand that it might be more complicated than that.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    But why not mix vanilla stuff with RHS? The Merkava and Leopard 2 are likely opponents for the content we see in RHS (like Merkavas in the Golan Heights and Leopards vs. T-90s). It'd be nice to be able to use the RHS really high-quality assets versus vanilla assets (and indeed other mods using vanilla standards), because it vastly increases the amount of scenarios people can play, not everybody wants to play the same old superpower showdown. Make no mistake, RHS has the highest quality assets in the A3 scene right now (matched by Toadie's guns in the firearms department), but its lack of compatibility with the very game it's based on harms it in very deep, very serious ways. This is why I hope this fabled RHS-vanilla patch rolls around sharpish (also RHS giving more detail on how to implement their bretty gud armour system with mods), because it'll open up a much wider range of scenarios than available previously (it'll also serve to soothe the tempers of many people I talk to as a moderator of an arma group)

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Question (like you haven't got millions of them already :V) - How exactly does the armour system with RHS work? I'm trying to make a replacement config to make vanilla tanks compatible with RHS, and RHS launchers and AT weapons compatible with vanilla vehicles. So far I believe you're using very precise damage values to model armour, but it would be nice to have some clarification on this.
  16. Can't you just get it from CfgAmmo?
  17. I've been trying to create a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No._73_Grenade, and I've run into difficulties finding ways to make the grenade detonate on impact with the ground. Snooping around in configs has produced no results thus far, and I don't even know if it's possible to create impact-detonated grenades as all the ones I've found seem to be of the time-delayed variety. If anyone can supply me with a config entry that makes grenades detonate on impact, it would be helpful!

    Impact-detonated grenades

    I actually found a different solution: I inherited from the 40mm GL grenades and made some alterations. I think it's the simulation entry in cfgAmmo that defines it, I believe if it's shotGrenade then it uses the explosionTime parameter and if it's shotShell then it'll detonate on impact. Thanks for the help though!

    M.S.K.E. 4 Islands Map Version 2017

    I've got this too, so it's reproducible. It'd be nice if we could find a fix for this, it's a damn fine map.

    I think what you're looking for is the OH-58. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_OH-58_Kiowa

    Sniper Ghillie config.cpp

    Apologies for derailing the thread, but I need some assistance with a config, and I do not yet have the necessary posting privileges to make a separate thread. I didn't see an independent questions thread, either. So, onwards to my problem. I've been trying to create a vest that's invisible. This is my code. class CfgPatches { class invisiblevest { units[] = {}; weapons[] = {"inv_vest_1"}; requiredVersion = 0.1; requiredAddons[] = {"A3_Characters_F_BLUFOR"}; }; }; class cfgWeapons { class Vest_Base; class VestItem; class inv_vest_1 : Vest_Base { scope = 2; displayName = "Deep Pockets"; picture = "\A3\characters_f\Data\UI\icon_V_plate_carrier_1_CA.paa"; model = "\Data\chestrigmodel.p3d"; hiddenSelections[] = {"camo"}; hiddenSelectionsTextures[] = {"\Data\chestrigblackbase.paa"}; class ItemInfo : VestItem { uniformModel = "\Data\chestrigmodel.p3d"; containerClass = "Supply100"; mass = 5; armor = 5*0.1; passThrough = 0.7; hiddenSelections[] = {"camo"}; }; }; }; However, the vest doesn't even show up inside the game/virtual arsenal. I've probably done something terribly wrong, so please point me towards any inconsistencies in my config. I know this is definitely the wrong place to post this, so if a moderator could move this to its own separate topic, that would be appreciated.
