Different minimap based on player or vehicle position

In BFV in one of the maps when you go down in the tunnels your minimap changes to a subterranean minimap. This is accomplished by the game checking the player's position: if the position is below a certain Y coordinate (vertical position) at a certain location (X and Z coordinates of inside the tunn...

Re: Battleclaft ain't working in Windows 10

I get both of those errors, they are common and don't really affect anything with Battlecraft 42. ED42 is a pain in the ass, it is mainly used for texturing the ground, as it has a really good feature for that. Also no object limit, and a really neat forest tool... other than that, I'd steer toward...

The Allied side starts with 240 tickets while the Axis start with 200 tickets. All flags are held by the Axis at map start. There are five...

Copyrighting archives

Is there a way to copyright certain or all archives of a mod so that they cannot be edited with Battlecraft? I know this is the case for XPack1/XPack2 archives in BC, but I'd like to know how one would be able to copyright custom mod archives so that they cannot be opened in BC, or any other map edi...

Creating high quality serverInfo.dds icons

Hi all, I'm having difficulty creating good looking serverInfo.dds icons for my mod. It seems that the best I can get is an ugly, pixelated 16x16 icon. I am using GIMP. Basically I have a 1024x1024 px PNG with transparency, my logo, that I am trying to rescale to 16x16 in GIMP. I then export it to D...

Re: Patchable archives

You don't understand what I meant Just check which files in the list have a _001 those can be "patched" what you can also see from the list: _002 will never work on archives, besides the level rfa (if im correct) These files are the ones I just mentioned in my post above. How do you know ...

Re: Patchable archives

you read the list wrongly ;) It contains a list of all files that are read. So game.rfa is read, but this list doesnt contain game_001.rfa so that file is not read I wasn't asking about what can be read, I was asking about what archives can be patched. These archives are: - texture.rfa - standardMe...

Re: Patchable archives

Yeah I meant archives that can have _xxx patches. All archives can be edited of course. I don't think from the list you provided that game.rfa can be patched that way. I've never seen any mod with patched font, animations, shaders, ai or aiMeshes RFAs before. TreeMesh also cannot be patched I believ...
