  • Vote for MAPFACT.net Editor Upgrade addon

    Hello fellow Mission Dev team members,

    There are numerous posts regarding this addon being used by TG.
    I have kept a backseat approach and kept silent but watchfull eye on the subject.
    As a mission maker, adopting this addon will greatly improve our missions in the future.
    Personally, I do not see any underlying issues nor problems with the adoption of this addon.
    Specially with our current update policy/program.

    MAPFACT Editor upgrade

    http://www.armedassault.info/index.p...t=news&id=2685
    Total size: 389KB


    History of addon:
    In the past, MAPFACTs addons were rated up there with the best ones in the ArmA community. Their Editor update/upgrade addons brought countless options and possible scenarios for the mission makers. Without any issues.

    Pros:
    Multitude of scenarios/options available
    File size is nominal (389KB)
    Not in beta stage (version 1.00)
    Fully MP & SP compatible
    Tried & tested by the ArmA engine/community since its inception
    Update with TG updater package
    ACE compatible

    Cons:
    Admin process of uploading to the TG server (given)
    Editing the TGmodpack or renaming the TGmod (if needed)
    Addition of needed total file size for TG
    Possible update of version change in the future

    I here by, request your votes to bring it up with the administration team.
    My intention is to bring it up with the admin team and get this addon either a go, or no go within in 1 week.

        Voted yes.


        Its a simple addon that effectively unlocks hidden objects in the editer that should be there in the first place.

          Once these items are placed in game how does the AI "see" the object?

          What happens to the walkmesh?

          What happens to the lightmap?

          What happens to the collision detection?

          Any feedback appreciated.

            All objects behave the same, just like placing the already present "objects" (sandbags, radio towers, crates, etc.). Haven't tried in Arma2, but in Arma1 the roads didn't have AI pathfinding for them, so the AI would not use them like roads already present on the island. I have used the Arma2 one yet, so I am unsure of building destructability. Going to download and test 'er out.

            Same issues can occur with already present objects too. If you set the civilian side to be enemy, the AI will shoot at these placed objects until they "destroy" them.

            Basically, this is just an extension on the "Objects" directory to include all placeable objects.

            EDIT:

            Just tried it out, objects seem destroyable.

                Yeah, why not. Supposedly this has a lot more stuff than the "others don't need this"-types of editoraddons. The size is also next to nothing and it's easily distributable via Yoma.

                  Ok, so far 7 votes for, nil against.
                  I doubt that we have 14 members here. So the votes pretty much completed.

                  Any last minute thoughts?

                          ok, map fact is added to alpha and bravo. The pbo files are in the TGmaps folder for those that want to know.

                          This is a trial. Please don't go mad with the new objects as we are not sure if excessive use will cause lag

                            Thanks for the info Browna & thanks for the quick turn around. Kudos to you.

                            As for lag issues. Just like the stock maps, as long as the mission maker dont use a city size objects then it will be okay.
