Add New (ARMA 3) Item To Trader

5 posts in this topic

Hi

 

I am aware this has been covered to a degree but having gone through what I could find on the forum I have not yet worked this out.

I have a use for the Land_SatelliteAntenna_01_F and am trying to add it in as a placeable item

 

I added it to hardware in the config.cpp

"Exile_Item_CamoTentKit",
            "Exile_Item_CodeLock",
            "Land_SatelliteAntenna_01_F"

I added it to the class list

class Land_SatelliteAntenna_01_F                 { quality = 1; price = 5000; };

 

I know it has no weight ,  information or picture as I don't know where to add it

So far it is available at the trader with (obviously) no pic and doesn't actually go to inventory

 

Im thinking it needs its own class

something like:

class Land_SatelliteAntenna_01_F
    {
        name = "Satellite";
        icon = "a3\path\satellite.paa";
        weight="5";
    }; 

But am lost at this point

 

Any advice how i might make this purchasable and placeable

 

Thanks

 

 

EDIT: I assume once added fully infistar picks it up? but if not that would also be useful

you need to add it to the 

class CfgTraderCategories

I did think that as it goes but unsure how to format it

MAybe:

class Hardware
    {
        name = "Hardware";
        icon = "a3\ui_f\data\gui\Rsc\RscDisplayArsenal\itemacc_ca.paa";
        items[] =
        {
            "Land_SatelliteAntenna_01_F"
        };
    };

 

 

 

What about description eg:  Place me on your base roof to receive TV

What about how much weight it takes?

 

Can you please elaborate

Hey.. I don't think that is a configurable item that you can use in game.. Its an object, like a house basically.  It needs to be configured for use in a mod such as:

http://www.exilemod.com/topic/12705-extended-base-mod/

I think it'd be a great addition.. But otherwise it will not work to just add it to the trader and go.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.  :)

i had it before as a placeable in altis, but i dont see how its any different to any other item such as the laptop which is originally a arma item. The only thing stopping it from being added to exile would be exile its self
