  PMC Tactical Editing Wiki Editing    

Snake Man from the old editing site of PMC Tactical has informed us, that they are continuing to fill the PMC Editing Wiki with easy to understand editing knowledge over at their website.

You are looking one of a kind wiki at the moment, as nowhere else you can find a editing pages dedicated from newbie to hardcore editing / development guys around on the Armed Assault (ArmA), Armed Assault 2 (ArmA 2), Falcon 4.0 and Operation Flashpoint (OFP) in the web, as you do here.
Our game editing experience dates back to year 2000 when our main site was created (we started editing well beyond that).
It is our goal to make this place the one stop location for editing everything in these game/sim titles as well as general use of well known editing tools (3D modeling, image/text editing etc) and programming.

We try to provide very useful, easy to understand and “to the point” tutorials and information on all sorts of editing. You could say that we specialize to make high performance addons and to make them right, so we provide all the necessary information in the wiki to edit addons “properly”, not just put together a photo realistic nonworking piece of junk.

  CWR needs people! No more .... Editing    

The Cold War Rearmed team is looking for people to beta test and fix up the missions which are packaged with the CWR mod!

The CWR Team is looking for people who can test and fix some of the mission quirks. Candidates should be:

* Intimately familiar with the CWC campaign & missions
* Reliable
* Report issues and fixes in a timely manner
* Familiar with cutscenes

If you feel you have what it takes then PM Hoz. We only have room for 2 - 3 people.

We are also looking for some texture artists and someone who is familiar with doing satelite map textures.

  Grass Pack by Mikebart updated Editing    
Mikebart has released an updated Grass Pack beta on the BI Forums.

Edit: updated download link with 2048's and included .rvmats. This is a replacement for the old mb_Grass.pbo

Hey all, just a small Grass pack for island makers, all the textures were rendered from high poly geometry at 2048x2048.
The origional references were from photographs taken of grass in rural Victoria.

I havent actually tested it as clutter ingame yet, but its all set up and ready to go, I'd really like some feedback on how you guys go about using this, so please post back on this thread with any ideas on how you think I could make it more efficient and/or look better and ill get it back to you.

If you're interested in how these textures were made, then check out this tutorial: English Elm Tutorial, it pretty much explains projection rendering for diffuse maps in 3dsmax.

  New Mission Objective Script by hoz Editing    
Our Czech Section Admin Blondak has informed us that hoz released a very usefull Mission Objective Script at

Disarm the bomb. A ready to serve objective.
This script is to simulate a 4 wire bomb. You must choose the correct wire for cutting.

Copy all the contents from the init.sqf and description.ext and the HOZ_dabomb folder to your mission folder & mission files.
Open the editor and copy the addaction commands from the Bomb and the Police vehicle to appropriate objects in your mission.
If you want to avoid having to find the bomb first, then set HOZ_dabombFound = true in the init.sqf file. This will allow the player to skip that objective.

If you want to disable the timer then simply change HOZ_TimerEnabled to false.
Wire Color choices are: "Red", "White", "Gray", "Blue" and can be configured manually by setting HOZ_dabombWireC = "colorchoice". Be sure to disable HOZ_dabombRNDWires = false; if you want to manually specify the color. Default will be to randomly choose the color.

  Terrain Starter Kit released Editing    

blacKKnight63 has released his --=Terrain Starter Kit=--, which teaches you how to get into island making in the BIS Forums.

This pack was made to help people who have never made a map before, Make a Map!

It includes 5 Terrain Templates (terrain.png's) 5 Sat_LCO's and 5 Masks! For the DEM/SRTM Data I used the USGS Seamless Server,Or I Made the Heightmap in GeoControl, I then imported the data into VTBuilder and used the area tool to export that to .bt format which I imported into L3DT and generated the Sat_LCO's! I have left the masks a standard colour to simulate the area of which they are based etc!

  A Fix for Real Time Editor v4-rev3 by i0n0s Editing    

i0n0s has released a Fix for his Real Time Editor v4 - Revision 3: The mission editor on the BI Forums.

Change log:
*Double click won't unselect units any more
*No more jumping buildings when rewinding
*Solution for the "friendly enemy"-limitation. You still have to place a unit of each side down if you want to use the scripts in MP.
*No more error: "Waypoint not found" when using cycle in waypoints.
*Units shouldn't get out and then get in when moving to the next waypoint

An updated manual can be found here:
I've added the sections "Numpad", "The Power of Alt" and "Tips and tricks". If you have additional tricks or something that should get added to the manual, just tell it and I will add it.
