    that I can reproduce. I guess something isn't right. Dunno, either I made a mistake in the config of the mod or the ReScale doesn't work for all commanders. They were not exactly my focus at the time.

    Is it possible that you provide the steps to scale a unit down and up in PA, as long as I have the instructions, I believe(hope) that I will be able to do it myself. :)

    What do you mean by instructions to scale a unit down?
    Make the config file and run the jar?

    I mean how the jar works, is it like basic json file edits, or blender type edits. That way I can scale the commanders, and make necessary adjustments to make it look right.

    If you want that detailed step-by-step instructions, you should probably just read the steps in the source code. :)

    It rescales multiple things:
    - the json definitions of the units. These are easy to read text files that have things like offsets that dictate for example where the unit has a gun barelle for a weapon.
    - the papa models. These are binary files with a partially (just enough) reverse engineered format. The models are build up by vertices, the program reads them in, multiples their location with the factor and writes them back.
    - the papa animations. Same as the model a papa file with binary data. Animations contain the positions of the affected vertices for every frame of the animation. These vertices are also scaled, similar to the way the model scaling works.

    Based on how the problem looks like I would first check the json files, just because that is easy. But my guess, based on the errors I had on other units when developing, is that something about the animation is wrong. With luck it is only some missconfig in the json files, so check the animation attributes there. But I think it may be an issue with the papa animation binary files. If that is the case you will need to reverse engineer more on the files.

    I'd also be of some use. Hit me up sometime, I'll see what I can do.

    because I chose so. My intent was not to change the gameplay. It should not be hard to rewrite the tool to scale those as well.

    Maybe one day. Generally speaking I am not very active with PA, neither playing nor modding, and it will probably stay like that for a while at least.

    Anybody is free to put in some time of their own to fix this and other stuff though.
