|Summary||0004302: [Request] col library support|
me and talidan weren't sure if this has been reported officially before, but rather dotted around in bug reports.
i think what we need is efficient lua functions to reach within col libraries and somehow tie the correct col to the correct dff. by the way sa works it should be doing this automatically, but it seems unable to.
additionally, although arc_ has done great work to make cols stable, i still get the odd nulled collision on some custom objects, whether its if i've left the vicinity or not, seems quite random. reloading the resource immediately fixes it.
from discussion in mta, may be some useful background on how sa cols are done:
<Johnline> ipl lines use exactly the dff name:
<Johnline> so a col struct has no ambiguous referencing, it just sits in memory waiting for a dff with the right name to come along to pick it out from the .col library it is contained in.
<Johnline> i guess i should say the name of the col library in sp is irrelevant

very useful info halfway down the page
Priority updated due to the fact of that you can just split it into multiple .col files.
Won't fix? Something to do with .col's not having proper references to their models.
