BIS MLOD Example Models

Analysis

This is our “analysis” of the BIS released MLOD example models, they are the backbone of learning how to model stuff in ArmA so its good reference to have as much details pulled out of them into one page, than to go into o2 and load model etc everytime you want to reference some data.

This page was initially created when BIS released the first set of MLODs, they were limited in numbers but still gave us good idea how the modeling is done. It was sometime after BIS released ALL of their MLOD models and put together EULA which basically says that all addon makers need to supply MLOD models with their models if these are based into the BIS models (I'd say most models are).

The first thing that stands out is the LODs that are just numbered 1,2,3 etc in all models except in BMP2, why is BMP2 different we dont know. Then there is the new ShadowVolume's which we didn't have in OFP.
