ZGM Visitor Objects

by
ZeroG


Description:
I was annoyed about the huge (unnecessary) effort you have before you can start placing objects, I decided to create a comprehensive and interoperable template library which will make terrain editing a lot easier. This library contains of 2232 templates from A2, OA and PMC, so it is usable without any other addon (though compatible with them).

I call this library comprehensive because you can use Visitor 3, ARMA 2 In-Game 3D Editor, Shezan74’s World Tools and Homer Johnston’s Road Painter 2 with it without age long configuration feeding and inconvenient conversion between the (btw very very good) community tools. It is a kind of interface between all these tools. Once you have installed the library and understood the necessary conversion processes, you will be able to speed up terrain editing and enjoy your creativity with far less frustration…well, that’s at least what I had in mind when I began 3 weeks ago…


Features:
So, what is in it?
  1. A sorted and categorized Visitor 3 object library with 2332 default objects in it
  2. A template-corresponding World Tools object library with pictures of almost every object
  3. A template-corresponding A2 2D/3D-Ingame-Editor addon
  4. Conversion tools to make Visitor 3, In-Game 3D Editor, World Tools and Road Painter 2 interoperable without lots of effort on retyping configs


Installation:
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:
ZGM_VisO_EditorObjects.pbo


Usage:

Credits & Thanks:
Benny for introducing me to MS Powershell and giving key hints on the scripts

Shezan 74 for World tools
Homer Johnston for Road painter
Lester and [AS] Gnome as predecessors with their editor addon


Changelog:
v2
- did some bugfixing on the biedi2csv (3D Editor to Visitor Export) script this morning and found a way to get rid of submerged objects or "bad data format"-messages (hopefully).
