ArmA II Mod Tools Released, Make Your Own Co-Op Campaign

8/16/2009 at 9:57 AM

While ArmA II has a built in mission editor, it limits to exactly what you can do.  Sure you can place players, enemies, objects and waypoints - but what you can't do is use your own models, characters or story.  That's all changed though as Bohemia Interactive has released a full suite of mod tools for the PC co-op title.

The mod tools consist of multiple parts:

ARMA II mod tools require ARMA II version 1.03. The tool suite consists

Oxygen 2 Personal Edition for ARMA II - model editing and animation
Visitor 3 Personal Edition for ARMA II - terrain and map editing
TexView 2 - texture convertor and viewer
BinPBO Personal Edition - packer
Sound Tools - sound and lipsync utilities
FSM Editor - tool to edit and compile fsms used in ARMA II
BinMake - conversion tool
Tools Drive - main working directory for tools with mandatory data

All these tools are available free of charge and can be found right here.
