Now we get an RTE - thanks!!

One improvement could be that its possible to write down the height (Z) like "4.35". Now it allows me only to write "4".

Another thing is that if you move object with mouse it goes back to ground level "0". There are some entries in arma.rpt: "KeepHeight: Function is quite slow".

Nice and usefull tool - keep it going!! smile_o.gif

Thanks for the mirrors.


I don't support saving into mission.sqm. My program creates scripts, so you can dynamic create them on runtime.

If you want to add the objects to your mission.sqm, take a look at Low Flys 3D Controller.


You have to type faster wink_o.gif

Err, no, I made me a note and will fix the in next release.

And another error:

The scripts (created from exported objects) will only work if RTE is installed. To change this add the following code on top of the scripts:

<table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">if (isNil "ION_fSetPos") then {

ION_fSetPos = compile "(_this select 0) setPos (_this select 1);";


(This code has to add to all scripts, created using RTE Capture)

So, essentially this is VBS2's editor made possible in ArmA? Sounds awesome. I've seen plenty of scripts/add-ons out there trying to replicate this, but none have yet to do it with a smooth and friendly GUI interface. I'll be sure to give this a whirl.

Hey man

I was wondering, is it possible to play this online at all? Say like the two of you want to quickly place somthing then quickly open the RTE? Or do you need coding or somthing like that?

The current version on my PC can place soldiers. But I haven't any group management and there are some issues with soldiers I have to fix first.


It is created for singleplayer. You should be able to use it in MP also, but I can't guarantee for error and I personally think that the released version has not the features to be useful in MP. The next release should be more useful at that point.

But: A few days ago I read news about a project with exactly that aim: For the dynamic creation of maps while playing MP.

Pitifully I forgot the name of it, but take a look in the forum, you may find it.

Seems like we got an important guest at Labour Day, so we'll better give a WIP-report:



Bugs fixed:<ul>

[*]Able to set a unit to 4.35

[*]Z-values stay when moving unit(s)

What's new:<ul>

[*]Units can be placed

[*]Groups can be placed

[*]Unit can change group

[*]Groups will show up visuell

[*]Init can be set smile_o.gif (nearly forgotten)



What's missing: ( crazy_o.gif ): <ul>

[*]Lack of bugs

[*]Readd export (broken because of units)

[*]GUI rework


[*]The forgotten feature



(The red dots moving from a unit towards their leader to show their group)

Sorry, there is no new release. I still have some bugs inside. As said before: Just a WIP-report...

...with some questions:

Is here someone you uses ArmA Extended DLL?

And a second one: Is there a way to say to a groupmember that he has to move to a position and stays there, without falling back to formation?

Oh, and does anybody knows why the factory in the window on the second picture disappears when viewing through glass? (Ok, this isn't an RTE issue, but I'm interested in an answer wink_o.gif )

wow looks like a great update.

the question to the factory dissapearing is a LOD issue with the glass or something, happend with the humvee windows too. Game Bug.
