Hi everyone!

This is actually the first time I've ever tried to make a piece of equipment for Arma 3... I managed to create a basic backpack slot item and was able to get it into the game. A few errors but most of while have been rectified. Now I have my "backpack" that can be found in the arsenal or dropped in via Zeus. On the ground it has the skin and you can interact via open, take and inventory. The hit box however seems to big a little big, the item is slightly off the marker when placed on the map and despite the skin showing up while on the ground, when the item is equipped, the "backpack" is rendered invisible. Still functions like a normal back pack though. I've included as much info as I can in the following links

Would appreciate any help or advice! Thank you in advance.

try setting a texture via your config.cpp

as for the hitboxes I can't really help you there. I'm not sure how Arma calculates them, I assume its off of the model bounding box though.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Attempted to call the texture from the config file, but it seems upon doing so it no longer wants to show up in game. This issue is quite perplexing and annoying to say the least.

As this is my first mod attempt, I don't really know much about the hit box. But there is no setting for it in the config or model file. They are modeled after the template given by Bohemia Interactive's wiki page.
