I want to scale down some RA2 voxels to TS size. I found my way to the Scale tab in the Voxel Header settings, but it looks rather complicated and I'm not sure what to do. It's supposed to be scaled down 50%, right? What exactly do I do?

Open your calculator. Open vxl header and go to misc and in the bounds min x, min y, and min z. are the numbers you’re going to change. now take the number that’s in min x and type it in the calculator and divided it by 50% and then type what you get there in min x. (make sure you have a (-) before that or some thing bad will happen.) and do the same thing for the y and z and hit apply I guess. (Not to sure if you have to. but I do.) And then save and than test it out and it should be 50% smaller

I tried changing the Scale field too, that did the trick. But now I got another problem:

You'll have to adjust the turret's hva. But that's just because you resized it using the scale thing. You should've used Bounds, it DOES work, i think you just forgot to press apply..

Can't find any Bounds. Maybe because I'm using verison 2.

in the scale section is the bounds, only the top bit that sais scale is the scale, the others are the bounds.

It works as follows,

Pick a size for X,Y,Z

Min X = 0- (SizeX divided by 2)
Max X = (SizeX divided by 2)

Min Y = 0- (SizeY divided by 2)
Max Y = (SizeY divided by 2)

Min Z = 0- (SizeZ divided by 2)
Max Z = (SizeZ divided by 2)

This may sound like a stupid question now, but if you divide x, y and z by 2 to get the min and max bounds, then why do some voxels have ridiculously long decimal places?

Because they don´t divide it by 2 and MinZ should not be calculated like that... it should be closer to 0 and the MaxZ should be closer to the max voxel height. This is only if you want the voxels to be similar to the original voxels, selection of the voxel ingame is effected by it (just to mention on of the things).

There won't be any noticable difference in the editor. Its also better to use HVA Builder to do the bounds since u don't have to worry about the maths u can just type in the size you want and it calculates it.
