R Arma 2 Vehicles MDOL or ODOL & anyway 2 edit them if ODOL. TIA
Bear with me, I'm new and I dont Have Arma 2 installed ATM nor will I for a few days-week Due to HDD Going Bang.. Had an amazing Dream Idea for a Arma 2 Mod, as you do, delved into arma 2 modding and got confised. Nuff Said.
I understand the model format is p3d, and there are 2 types, MDOL, and ODOL, the first is uncompressed & unauthorized, and the other is not.
However there is a ODOL Explorer able to read ODOL v7 and convert it so the model can be edited, presume ARMA 2 uses above v7 rendering it obsolete.
What I essentially want to know is are Arma2 vehicles etc in the MDOL P3D format at present, and as such editable in BIS's modelling tool applications, or are they in the ODOL Format, and not editable in BIS's modelling tool applications and if so, what is the ODOL version used & is there an ODOL Explorer/Converter capable of converting arma 2 models from ODOL to MDOL or other format?
I know of 3DRipperDX, but just wish to peruse normal means and learn a little from you fine guys & gals at this stage before my new HDD comes and I can install my beloved Arma 2 Again & get to work.
