So i have recently started to delve into creating addons for Arma 3, i started basic and created a small Unit patch addon. Today, i have been trying to learn how to create a small retexture addon (for testing purposes) I have followed many guides but there always seems to be something lacking and its giving me a bit of a headache. the most i have been able to do is add a retextured object into a particular mission. Currently I have a retextured Independant forces uniform and have converted it to a .paa, the problem is i have no clue on how to set up the config.cpp file correctly and what else i need in my project directory. none of my guesses or attempts to work it out myself has proven successful (Unsurprisingly) and i have not found anything that adequately explains what my Config file is supposed to contain ect. i have no doubt that i am just missing a really obvious and descriptive guide or i have just misunderstood something but i don't suppose anyone could dumb it down a bit for me as i am completely new to this kind of thing and i'm doing more of a crash course. All i need to know is what the config for a basic addon containing one uniform should look like and what the contents of my project folder should be.

Thanks in advance!

We have an entire editing section so what would be the most obvious section to post in?

Exactly, next time you can re-post it in the correct section but since the sun is shining so nicely I will move the topic for you.
