  3. Open the editor on any map and place a playable unit and the ALiVE ORBAT Creator module.
  4. Preview the game and the tool will start automatically.
  5. The ORBAT Creator will detect any unit mods loaded.
  6. If you close the tool by pressing the escape key, you can reopen the interface via the ALiVE interaction menu by selecting “ORBAT Creator”.


Using the ORBAT Creator

The interface has 4 main elements accessed via the buttons in the top right. Each editor can be used standalone or altogether to create an entirely unique faction with different units and groups.

  • Faction Editor is for creating new factions and checking that all the faction’s groups are compatible with ALiVE.
  • Unit Editor is used for creating new custom units and vehicles and editing their equipment loadout.
  • Group Editor is for creating and editing group compositions.
  • Generate Config does not open a separate screen. It exports the config for the current editor to clipboard. The Generate Faction Config button is special in that it will export a config for the whole Faction, including any custom Groups and Units.
