    Just because I am not planning to spend 90% of my free time on PA stuff in the next few weeks to month doesn't mean I am out of the world...

    Of course I also don't do that xd. It's just that I see many if the BIG mooders getting out of Pa lately. Think or revn.. That was what I was refering to.

    The rescale tool still works though... Right? I need it for reasons.

    I haven't looked at it for ages. In theory I doubt Uber would do substantial changes that break everything about it.
    But who knows. You'll need to try and if it doesn't work fix it.

    Couldn't you have been bothered enough to go back just one page.

    Disabled the 0.4x rescale mod on PAMM as this is way out of date and requires a repackaging to include Titans etc.

    No. No it doesn't. Titans support is not mandatory, this mod doesn't indicate it supports Titans, nor is it hosted on the Titans forum.

    Unless it's broken in classic then it should not be disabled.

    Even in PA classic you'd get localization errors and depending on when this was last updated you'd be missing Unit Cannons, Subs, Phoenixes, etc, which would either be non-buildable or not be shrunk at all.

    I have no idea if the mod still works. Likely would need at minimum an update.

    They're asking about the tool, not the mod. (The tool works fine)

    Then what specifically is the issue in the usage of the tools. It has some basic instructions. Install java, fill in config file, run command.
    What step is making problems?

    Since the tool works fine, does that mean I can use it to make new units, with new models, that are rescale copies of existing models? E.g.: T2 Nuke Launcher (bigger) and T1 Tac-Missile Launcher (normal size)? This isn't the use I want, but it's an example.

    EDIT: Still interested in answer, but have fashioned a workaround: What I needed, were 8 models to launch units. Decided, I merely needed 6 if I combine bot and tank into "land".

    Yes you can rescale a model and use it as a new unit. I think @burntcustard did just that in some mod involving boom bots.

    I wan to to use the tool to resize some units from titans, what exactly do I do here? I have the master.zip off of GitHub but I don't have the first idea how to use what is in the folder, the instructions are lacking, greatly, even more so for a complete noob to the thing like myself. Any help in using this would be appreciated, full faction mod in the works, if I get past my teething issues.

    First you need to install java, then you need to open CMD to run the commands as in the readme.md

    Edit conf.txt before you run the command in CMD to suit your needs. Make sure all of your paths are correct/to your liking.

    So if I wanted to scale a single unit I just add the path for the unit in config and boom yeah?

    I have the config.txt set out like:
    pa.units=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Planetary Annihilation Titans\media\pa_ex1\units
    texturemod.output=C:\\rescalepa
    scale=4
    /pa_ex1/units/land/bot_nanoswarm/bot_nanoswarm.json

    I use the command with the required changes to use the conf.txt and nothing I even pathed the .jar and nothing
