7erra's Editing Extensions


Here is my first attempt to create a mod. This mod is heavily inspired by R3vo's 3den Enhanced.

- Find Object Type on Map: Creates a map marker and a 3D marker on the position of every object with the same class name. Useful to find certain house types.
- Show Building Positions: Creates 3D markers on the positions of the building positions used with buildingPos[].
- Export button for the CfgViewer: Export the currently selected config with a single click!

To install 7erra's Editing Extensions 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.
