Big Fat Master Caution:
Mixing Brickmen clothing and human clothing either way will lead to a direct CTD. Arma3 can't handle the mismatching skeletons!
One head piece
Two face textures (Normal and Sunglasses)
Four chest pieces
Basic bricks with PhysX simulation
Change brick color in 3DEN
Change brickmen appearance in Arsenal
Can use human weapons
Units and bricks in Zeus
I'd just like to make it clear: Obviously this is an unofficial addon, neither BI, BISim nor LEGO or Megablocks were involved here.
I won't continue developing the addon either. It's a one-off thing really. Of course it's all non-commercial, too.
And should LEGO get concerned about the likelyness, I'll remove the content download links. (Just to be sure and hopefully safe)
The idea here is mostly to demonstrate how versatile the engine is. Also to provide a working and "cleaned" sample to reference for similar projects.
What should be done:
The Artwork required here is fairly low. A new chest piece is really just one texture change and an extra config line.
So you can add new Heads, Faces, Chests, Legs, Hats and whatnots here. Zombie Brickmen? Check! Police Brickmen? Check! 1980's-something-Spaceman? Check!
The supplied full sources will make it easy to grasp the concept behind this project setup and the usage of baseclasses. Duplicate and change the obh_chracters addon to be the basis of your own customization for these figures and their parts.
To install Operation Blockhead 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.
The source files of Operation Blockhead have also been made available and you can download from here:
