PLP Containers


This Addon will add dozens of Containers, both in static and useable Versions.
See a list of the available assets in the classnames.xls , that should be included.

To install the PLP Containers you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

For usage instructions and information of how to use the PLP Containers addon please refer to the included documentation.

Find the Mission-Editor Items under "Empty" ->
"PLP Containers (Useable, Cargo)"
"PLP Containers (Useable, Fuel)"
"PLP Containers (Misc)"
"PLP Containers (Moveable, Metal)"
"PLP Containers (Moveable, Plastic)"
"PLP Containers (Moveable, Others)"
"PLP Containers (Pallets)"
"PLP Containers (Static, Metal)"
"PLP Containers (Static, Plastic)"
"PLP Containers (Static, Others)"
"PLP Containers (Weaponholders)"

From there it can be used in 2D Editor, 3D Editor, Zeus, Mapbuilder and the incredible xCam(!) from Silola.
The Weaponholders can be mad invisible by using:
this setObjectTexture [0, "\plp_containers\Holders\wh_empty_ca.paa"];
in its Init-Field.

To the Island-Builders:
There are different methods to use the included .p3ds for a new map in Visitor/Landbuilder:

A) Simply unpack the plp_containers.pbo in your p-drive and use the p3d-Files from the Root-Folder.
You can include the 'plp_beachobjects.pbo' in your download if you want, so the Players do not have to download
several addons to make your island work.
Advantage: This helps to reduce the size of the map and requires less work. :)
Disadvantage: It will make the addon a requirement, so the map can only be played if the pbo has been loaded.

B) Use Mikeros Move-Tool to move the needed files to your Island-Project-Folder.
Youre allowed to include all my objects on your islands without my written permission.
Any other form of distribution requires my permission and must be in line with BIS' EULA (!)
Advantage: The Island-Users do not have to download any other Mods to make your Island work.
Disadvantage: Depending on the amount of objects you include in your addon, its file size might increase drastically.

Note: I never tested Solution B, but it should work .. i think .. somehow .. ;)
