Currently you need to broadcast the object over network as the setObjectTexture
command is only local - this is rather messy for JIP and many objects.

Or you createVehicleLocal them with gives you lots of rpt spam with:

Ref to nonnetwork object 176a8700# 438959: protectionzone.p3d

So both not really nice solutions.

What needs to be done
Add new config class in \ca\misc_e\config.cpp at the end:

 class ProtectionZone_Ep1_Invisible: ProtectionZone_Ep1
  hiddenSelectionsTextures[] = {"#(argb,8,8,3)color(0,0,0,0,ca)"};

  • Affected ArmA II version deleted (Please select...)
  • Maxmem parameter deleted (Not set)
  • Difficulty deleted (Not set)
  • Language deleted (Please set for missions)

An empty array could work too I suppose:

class ProtectionZone_Ep1_Invisible: ProtectionZone_Ep1 {
hiddenSelectionsTextures[] = {};
