    Is there a way to offset a Units location on the map. in this case:
    fabrication_sub > it spawns halfway underwater and I want it to be completely submerged.
    is this possible?

    You can move the model down in Z space inside the .papa file but I don't know of any other ways nor how Uber did it with subs.

    I figured out so far that i can edit the model.json file to be on another layer. It was on

    WL_WaterSurface
    changed it to
    WL_DeepWater

    but still a little bit sticks out.
    can you explain how I can edit the .papa file and change the Z axis?
    unless its converting the model to .fbx and then moving it down. because that does not work

    I guess you could rewrite https://github.com/pamods/ReScalePa so that it translates the model down instead of scaling it.

    you just need to open the .papa file in blender and move it down just a little on the Z axis. It will then be moved down in the engine when rendered.

    And yeah you need to export it as a new .papa file and replace the old one.
