Summary0005436: Allow to change vehicle camo in zeus
DescriptionPlease add an option to change vehicle camouflage in zeus. For some vehicles its possible to change it via virtual garage using achilles, but for some there are no camos to select, even though it's possible to change camo while in Eden.

For example for mi-8 helicopter variants it is not possible to switch to CDF or insurgent camos for certain armed variants, even though it's possible when placing the helicopter in Eden. For someone who uses zeus almost exculively it would be a great improvement to allow doing this in zeus.
Additional InformationI expected to be able to use a script to be able to change the camo, but I was unable to figure it out. If anyone knows a workaround using script, that knowledge would be appreciated.

Which variant are you exactly using?

I tried all mi-8 variants and mi-24 variants.
I wanted to get one of the armed ones, like mi8-AMTsh in CHDKZ camo (there is only an unarmed variant in zeus menu), or the mi-8T (the one with door MGs only) for CDF (in zeus CDF only has mi-8AMTsh and the unarmed one available). As far as I can tell all of those do have appropriate camos (you can select them in eden), but cannot be set to them with zeus.

I mean which exactly Mi-24 did you used (which faction/side) to test that?

mi24G -> blufor CDF(air force)
mi-8MTV3 - redfor vdv/vvs
mi-8amtsh - blufor CDF
mi-8AMT - indiefor CHDKZ
mi-24d ->blufor CDF
To name a few.

All of them can be changed in eden (for example i can have mi-24G in russian camo or mi8AMTSH in CHDKZ camo)
But it cannot be done in zeus.
On the other hand i can get an mi-8amtsh in chdkz camo in zeus if i use the russian one as base.

Well, there are factions restrictions applied on which camo schemes can be applied to which faction. You could ask Achilles author for some toggle which could turn off those restrictions on all assets.

We might also try to disable it on our end but in general, I think more robust solution could be created on Achilles side.

Restriction is one thing, but for example the mi-24G (blufor, CDF), cannot be set to blufor CDF camo. It's always gray in zeus. Also redfor mi-8MTV3 cannot be set to redfor CHDKZ camo.

And if I may ask, why is that restriction present in the first place? I admit not having it would grant more freedom to zeus mission making.

Vanilla restricts certain skins per faction - Virtual Garage (accessible via VA or script) doesn't have that restriction but Eden Garage has it. I don't like that idea and thats also why some of vehicles retained old drop down menu for selecting skins.
