Project history:
The USA's most infamous military conflict is coming to ArmA.......slowly. VTE was an extensive modification for OFP and is currently in the process of being ported over to the ArmA engine.

The project was originally headed by GranQ but he soon quit the project (and ArmA modding all together due to going to college) and the project is currently headed by snakeman who has yet to respond to the thread on the BI forums.

Personal Comments:
These screens make me really excited to play this mod, the Vietnam war is one of the most interesting times in American history to me. It's going to be awesome to experience it through the power of video games, someone just needs to work on it and release it. I will obviously update this topic when more information becomes available.

New version released today : PMC Tactical forums
Still in pre Alpha but previous were already really enjoyable, so my advice is that you really should give it a try, mates ! ;)

EDIT : By the way, I really don't know why they still call it a pre alpha since it is already fully playable...

vikk : great mod. except it CDT's alot. and most of the aircraft are very hard to control

And it is better than before for the planes ! Except the Mig 19 (or Mig 17 i can't remember) which are way too sensitive, planes are easier to handle than in previous releases.

For CTDs i haven't had this problem yet, will try it longer next time.

Thank you guys!! I like it :love , a lot, even there's still a lot of work to do (especially with grass flying at some areas). I find the soldiers models good (VC are great) and weapons too. Aircrafts are great and more sensitive (hard to handle).

One question: i can place a gunner in a chopper with moveingunner command, but how i place a gunner on the second machine gun? (moveinturret command not working here)
Excellent work.

@ vikk : I tried it a few hours and I still have no CTD, but one my mate had one, maybe it's hardware related or maybe it creates a conflict with another mod/addon...

@ Gun : I'm glad you like it :). If you want to check the news take a look at their forums, they are still working hard on it and looking for any help available.
I don't have the answer for your question, maybe someone here has it.

ANZAC SAS Col. Steve shared a new config file in PMC Tactical Forums for the VTE mod.

Quote ANZAC SAS Col. Steve :
Hi ya's,

I was inspired to do some more work on the clutter grass for vte after realising the full potential of the new 1.14 grass and see the extra tree's etc in some of the new islands.
The grass i have configured is supposed to be a replacement for the long and short grass that has the ai transparency problems and fit to ground problems.

[...]

here is a list of the more tweaks i would like some feed back about-

-class VTE_BaseLaserBombCore : MissileCore
sideairFriction = 0.5;


-class VTE_Helicopters : Plane {
insideSoundCoef = 0.05;

- grassclutter's reworked on all onislands.
- environment sounds tweaked.
- uh1 slick and medivac pilot fov tweaked.

If anyone other than snakeman is keen to try/test this make sure you back up a copy your vte_config.pbo


Download link for the new config file : Mediafire

PS : I haven't submitted an armaholic download page since it's still an unofficial config file, but it could part of the next official release for sure.

Excellent work.

I think I might have found what you are looking for, with the moveInTurret command.

- Name your chopper : chopper1 (for example)

this moveInTurret [chopper1, [0]]
for the first soldier
this moveInTurret [chopper1, [1]]
for the second soldier.

I never had these errors since I installed first version (now it's the fifth).

I think the download or installation failed somewhere, you should delete it, then re download and reinstall it again.

Try this and tell me.

is there any list of classnames? (i mean VTE units, weapons and ammo) I have searched on web and decompressed the pbo files, but nothing.
