Eden Editor: Configuring Attributes: Controls

From Bohemia Interactive Community
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Entity attributes in Eden Editor are represented by specific UI controls. By default, the game offers a wide range of pre-define controls. Not all available controls are listed here due to frequent updates. All available controls can be found in configfile >> "Cfg3DEN" >> "Attributes", but be careful, some of those attributes are not ment to be used with custom attributes. Trial and error!

Configuration
