Coast guard wouldnt have Mk19's, I suggest a M2 and an unarmed version. Btw nice texture :)
Unarmed version is a great idea. Not sure if changing the config around will remove the front weapon, but I'll give it a shot.
I could make an unarmed one from the ArmA 1 MLOD model, its the same and would be easy to bring over :)
Well, the more I thought about it, the more I figure that the Coast Guard probably doesn't have any unarmed boats like this, especially since the Homeland Security changed their focus from a branch that primarily does SAR, to a branch that primarily does anti-terrorism and border patrolling (but which still does SAR). Thanks for the offer but I'm going to stick with the regular Arma2 RHIB and just not do one with the Mark 19.
Very cool. I actually really like this idea. Would love to see this work out. Only thing is the PBX boats looks a little...flat. Or dull, a bit too much orange. Maybe so black decals would help.
Anyways I like the work you did on the Skins for the Coast Guard units. You seem pretty skilled. Any chance you could reskin some other units? hehe :D
Thanks for the nice comments and suggestions. I basically had to make a whole brand new skin for the PBX since the default ones were impossible to modify. So the grunge detail is a bit on the light side since that stuff is pretty difficult to do. I can assure you that it looks pretty good in game, if not in screenies. But I just saw a different reference photo where the hull and some parts of the body were silver instead of orange or black. So maybe I'll add more black to the nose, change the hull and rear panel to silver and call it a day.
I've never reskinned a whole unit before. I've done parts of units. I guess I could take a crack at making my own characters. But it's pretty difficult to find a default Arma2 model that fits what I need.
-Tac vest that I can convert to a floatation vest
-Only a pistol belt or nothing around the waist (no pouches)
-short sleeves or rolled up sleeves
-baseball hat or no headgear or maybe earphones and mic
-Coat or something that looks like a coat
-no headgear other than a balaclava and goggles
I can think of a few Arma1 models that come from other mods that would work well. But I'm looking for Arma2 quality models.
EDIT: Hmm, I just found a photo of USCG guys with tac pockets on their life preservers/tac vests. OK, maybe I can find a stock BI guy that will work...
