ArmA: Addon Editing
Addon editing consists of a few different domains:
- Writing configs
- Writing scripts
- Creating custom models
- (Re)Texturing models
- Creating / obtaining sounds file
- Very important: Testing
Writing configs is required for almost any addon project. Only pure file replacement can be done without. Still the art of config editing is a very rare one. One of the reasons is the lacking documentation both from BI and the community. Another one is that the process even for seasoned and experienced persons is one of lot of experimenting, tweaking and testing - in other words time!
For this reason it is essential to have the best test setup available.
