Hidden Textures


These are some of the hidden textures contained in the game files but unavailable in the editor. - No Mods required.

Check out:

for full credits for the finders

To access the meaty bits simply unpack the mission using PBO Manager and open in Eden Editor. The init field of each unit has the magic sauce. Simply copy the unit and init info into your mission

***Many of these textures are viewable in the Virtual Garage, but inacessabile from Eden editor "Edit Apperance" option***

Added 'animal' textures, AH-9 pylon hacks and deming drone pylon 'improvements'

If you like this maybe try Flags on Vehicles a similar file a walking library of vehicles with flags attached and the file paths for you to use in your own missions.

The underwater wreck init is

this setObjectTextureGlobal [0, "\a3\structures_f\wrecks\data\UWreck_Heli_Attack_02_body1_CO.paa"];
this setObjectTextureGlobal [1, "\A3\structures_f\wrecks\data\UWreck_Heli_Attack_02_body2_CO.paa"];

in your file manager you can browse the file at
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3/Addons/structures_f_wrecks.pbo/data/UWreck_Heli_Attack_02_body1_CO.paa

So go make a mission with a salvaged water crash Mi48!

@Adam_Hun the whole point of this file is to have a visual reference and simple space to organise 'extra' content that can be used in missions without the need for external mods - useful for missions that run on vanilla servers. I use it to populate my missions with weird shit and to keep loadouts and vehicles fresh and interesting for folk who have been used to seeing the same gear for 6 years!

Oh ok, then it's fine i guess. I recognised that outfit, cuz I saw it in ArmA 3 Aegis mod which implemented alot of new stuff into the game without modifying the core of the game too much. That outfit was one of the things that it implemented.

he's attached to a logic module - mention on the forum post and so included here.

He's on the list of things to find

Also, everytime I load in the map, I get this floating militia outfit in front of me, not sure why. Image []

Its a massive work in progress - have a poke in the init and see what it says - the zip is more recent than the workshop file

@SeaCaptainJim I think I found a bug with one of the MI-48 Kajmar, the one with the underwater texture is not loading in and has no textures when I load up the map.
