ITALIAN SPECIAL OPERATION FORCES for Combined Operation.

Now with working wound textures!.

Hi all,
I decided to start a new tread because these units are for CO, and they are also pretty different , in organization, from my previous work .
The previous Italian SOF are still working and operational for Arma 2 only version users, you’ll find them there : http://www.armaholic.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=9087&d=0 .
From version 1.01 with working wound textures, thanks to StalkerGB support and Rvmat references!

As always please report bugs and suggestions , hope you’ll enjoy this new pack.

Description
This addon is a retexture of Arma2 OA Delta Force , German and Czeck SF units, meant to rapresent Italian Special Operation Forces in all the different camouflages actually used by Italian SOF, as following :

- Ranger(vegetata): for temperate and woodland environment.
- Ranger(desert): for desert and arid environment.
- SF(heavy multicam): for both desert, temperate and woodland environments, in heavy gear.
- GOI (light multicam): they're Navy special forces,same as SF but for gameplay reasons they're rapresented in lightweight gear.
- SF\Ranger(Winter): for snow covered and artic environment.
- Ghillie snipers and Spotter : desert and woodland, you'll find them under Rangers Vegetata and Desert categories .
- Support\Other Units : Officers, Guards and Off Duty soldiers in all camos, plus crews and pilot.
- Undercover SF Operators
I used what I found on web as reference sources.

Features:

- All the models HAVE WORKING WOUND TEXTURES .
- Units are equipped with M4, I've tried to balance the gear as best as I could.
- Every class (sorted by camos) has a wide variety of roles, and featured groups in the editor.
- New "Engineer" ability for the sapper , and all the others can hide bodies.
- Featured content rucksacks.
- Optional ACE config with ACEX gear available, including ACE "AI talk" module support.
- 3 Replacement files that replace standard BI US delta force models with the ones in your preferred camo ( des, mult or veget), with WORKING WOUND TEXTURES off course!

Installation.
Put the addons in the "mod folder" of your preference, you will find the units in the editor under:
Bluefor - Italian SOF (CO) (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - Italian SOF (CO) (as above).

Requirements.
It requires Arma 2 Combined Operations (A2 + OA) to run , because it uses OA models and some A2 weapons.

ACE2 config files Installation.
Just put the ACE2 Optional Config (called "mas_ita_unit_ACE.pbo") in the modfolder of your preference and you'll see in the editor another faction added : "Italian SOF (CO-ACE)".
Units and organizzation are the same as for standard Italian SOF, but they've no backpacks, they're all equipped with ACEX gear and weapons (this means for example that all of them have one bandage, and medics have drugs too, or that spotters have spotter scopes and rangefiders, demo expert uses ACEX explosives too, etc).
The units are also already set to use "English" if Ace AI Talk is enabled.

Units and Groups are the same as for vanilla game, as following:.
Bluefor - Italian SOF (CO-ACE2) (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - Italian SOF (CO- ACE2) (as above).

Replacement Pack Installation.
You'll find 2 different replacement types of file, you can use both at the same time if you wanna replace both US Army and Delta Force models with Italian ones.

- "US Army Replacement" : replace all US Army models with the italian ones, Pilots and Crews too.
You can choose to install the "vegetata" or the "desert" replacement depending on the environment you're playing in.
- "Delta Force Replacement" : replace only the Delta Force BI models with the Italian multicam ones.

ITALIAN SPECIAL OPERATION FORCES for Combined Operation


Hi all,

I’ve updated my Italian SOF to version 1.02.

In this update I’ve worked a little bit more on textures, and I’ve set ACE config in a way to automatically hide standard Italian SOF units, showing only the ACE ones, in this way there’s no need to change any “class name” (for mix makers).
Now the units will be found under “Italian Special Operations” in the editor.
I hope you’ll enjoy the new version, for further details please read the following changelog.

Changelog.
v1.02 date 11/SEP/2010
- Now units are called "Italian Special Operation"
- ACE config now hide standard Italian SOF units

Hi all,
Sorry for the long wait , but I was, and actually am, a little busy, anyway I’ve found some time to update some of the retexture packages I’ve released a year ago.
I tried to follow advices form the forum (And thanks a lot for that !!!) in order to improve a little bit the quality of the addons, hope you’ll enjoy this new version too!!!
In this update you’ll find new unit classes: Rifleman an Grenadier and also CQB Operator, Breacher and PSD (Personal Security Detachment) Operator .
I’ve also reduced the number of mixed camos units due to requests, and improved a little bit the loadout configuration of some of the units due to patch 1.59 possibilities, and also the ACE optional config included in the package has been updated.
