Plopper

Description
This is a mod used to place objects on A3 Terrains. You could in theory use it for missions, but it's not recommended.
Only use this mod if you're willing to read a basic set of instructions. It's a new version of the ObjectPlacementTBH mod and comparable to X-Cam.

Do not add me for questions, use this discord[discord.gg]

How to start [READ THIS]
  • Launch @Plopper and @Pythia with -noPause and -window flags and without Battleeye
  • Start editor preview with a unit placed, press Esc and press Plopper
  • Read the manual (Button in the top menubar)

Additional notes
* This is a poweruser tool for terrain making. Want the simplicity of Eden? Use that
* If things don't work, please report them on discord.

No time for it, it's open source on gitlab though and very modular, so I'm more than happy to accept a Pull request for a heightmap brush tool :D

Please try to think of something to do with this https://feedback.bistudio.com/T156093

yea thats what i meant. livemod is broken for me. have to click again, out of the interface, so plopper will show the next chosen object;-(

Plopper doesn't have a preview due to the way the ui is setup. I recommend using livemode instead.

for some reason object preview does not work anymore after the update, would you please so kind and look into this? got the preview windows on.

Yeah I tried it and it works... can crash if the composition is big but works like a charm... Is there are way to save a composition as a SQF or as an EDEN composition?
Adanteh  [author] Jul 17, 2020 @ 4:25pm 
Yes, use the composition tool. Select using the brush you get, save it, then in your new terrain double click with comp tool to place.

Great tool! Thank you!

PS: Can I copy my selection of objects from map to another map using Plopper? (Map objects not user placed objects)

Something like this for dayz would be epic :--0

Just a heads up that this mod does not automatically swap your main template (The object being created when you Dbl click in Object mode). If you want to that template to switch to your your current selection press F.

If you have multiple objects selected it will use the last one from selection.
