Roller OFP island to ArmA terrain converter by Spooner

Roller is a community made software developed by Spooner to convert and process OFP and ArmA island files.

Its primary purpose is to convert OFP islands to ArmA for the ACE Island Pack, but it can also do some processing that could be useful to people making new ArmA islands.

Formats that can be imported

  • 4WVR WRP (OFP unbinarized)
  • 8WVR WRP (ArmA unbinarized)

Formats that can be exported

  • 8WVR WRP (ArmA unbinarized)
  • XYZ height data (text file), suitable for import into Visitor 3
  • Object data list (text file), suitable for import into Visitor 3
  • Mask texture (PNG)

Additional features

  • Generate satellite mask texture (customizable coloring based on terrain point height, definition of forest and urban areas, customizable texture size)
  • Replace forest block with customizable single objects (type, density, relative frequency)
  • Replace single objects with optional offset (1:n and n:1)
  • Reduce cell size for more height data points (useful if you want to add bumps), or increase cell size for less detail
  • Make terrain bumpy
  • Raise/lower sea level
  • Generate list of unique objects present in source file
  • Replace textures (1:n and n:1)
  • Set terrain point height at the edges (to avoid endless repeated terrain)
  • Processing summary
