Hi Foxhound.
It's both really. It'a mainly a collection of mods but also with a few extras. After I release the pack I'm going to make a few missions. A trial demo mission will be posted in a couple of days probably...

Added 2 minutes later:

Note: The pack is virtually done. It'll be a while until I make a proper mission, but I reckon the pack will be up in a few days!
:D)

Added 8 minutes later:

I am now working on another Fallout thing. It's for ArmA Cold War Assault. If anyone is interested then reply and I will explain some more.

Ok, so its a collection of addons and mods from other people.
I assume you have contacted all those people whos addons and mods you are using and asked for permission to re-release it?
If not you will not be able to release such a pack, or just ask all authors for permission.

Good point. I'll have to do that. Thanks.

I've read the readme in all the mods and they either don't say anything about rereleasing or say that it's ok as long as I put their names in.

If those readme's do not say anything about permissions you will have to contact the author.

You don't understand what I am trying to say.
You can not release a demo or any file here when that release contains any addon which has been re-packed without the authors permission.
So, you can only release a demo if you remove all those files you do not have permission for.

I have put names in the credits of the readme.

Added 6 minutes later:

Really? I have got rid of the ones that they say you need permission for. The other say that you can use them or don't say anything.
Is that ok?

Ok, here we go again.

- If an addon contains no readme or any other text document at all you have no permission to repack the addon and will have to contact the author and ask him directly.

- If an addon contains a text file without explicit permission to repack the file or use it in any way you want you have no permission to repack the addon and will have to contact the author and ask him directly.

- If an addon contains a text file in which the author states he does not mind what you do with his work as long as you credit him you will have to make a text file in your release with a credits list of all authors' work you used.

As long you have not the required permission you can not publically release any such "repack" file, except it may contain those addons which the author stated he does not mind you use his work in any way (but your file has to be accompanied by a credits file!).

Ok, I get it. Thanks for the advice. I guess that this'll have to be postponed for a little bit.

Yes. I've been busy recently and haven't really played ArmA 2 since my last post. I dunno. I may not release it.

why not just make the campaighn dependable on the mods
eg the navy seal campaighn needs duela or normalsk island but it doent have it so the user who wan't to play the campaign has to download the mods
