Advanced editor modules


Firt of all a bit of background:
After years of been part of this comunity i have always noticed that there is a bit gap between some mission makers and scripters/addon makers. Obviously the perfect situation would be that someone that edits a mision knows about everything else in the game(scripting/config/addons) so they can do anything they want and do it the best way it can be done.

Info about the addon itself:
"Advanced modules" its just a small editor GUI modification that adds the ability to easy configure extra parameters on editor modules. As most of the modules that are out there weren't thought with this addon in mind, there isn't many configurable options on most of the released modules, still this addon its able to configure all the default BIS modules that are documenten con the wiki.
But the true potential of this addon would be modules created with this configuration method in mind.
Right now the features are:
  • For mission makers:
      Easy configure all the parameters of BIS modules without needing to constantly search on the wiki.
      Also added options to 2 ACE modules( air refueling and EASA)
      In the future i will add any other addon/module that its documented, or addon makers could do themselves (UNS 2.5 will include at least one of those )
  • For addon makers:
      You can easy create mision editor modules with configurable parameters.
      Also for advanced addon makers, you can create your own custom configuration dialog(i have planned to add some API funtions to make it easier on the future)

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Included .pbo files:
Avanced Modules.pbo

For addon makers here a small example of the config of a configurable parameteres for and addon:


No signatures included since it's only needed for editing, but I may include them on the next release (well if people really like the idea obviously).
Still need some fixes so it can be used on all dialog sizes, i hope i can fix that on the future.

- added some more parameters that where missing
- removed the limitation of some fields, now you can enter statements not limited to numbers like before as DMarkwick suggested.
