    The Creator of the pack is ardvarkdb, you can contact him here on Armaholic or on his clan site (which is probably quicker) here. He is currently working on the units to make them better (Adding weapons ect ect.)

    Also I might add (given ardvark is ok with your replacement) use the L119 Pack in the place of the DM M4 pack (DM M4's are good weapons, don't get me wrong)

    Its the nicest thing to do when making a replacement to ask the authors of the original addon for permission to do so. Some may have other plans for that already so asking will prevent issues.
    Also that pack you found on a clans FTP the author does not want to see spreaded, he is working on an update and when he is happy he will release it himself.
    So, in all cases, contact the authors and check if they are ok with your work :-)

    I guess that will be fine now.
    Make sure to add a link to those units in your first post cause we are not allowed to mirror that file :-)

    These modifications to the UKF L115, do they simply overwrite ukf_l115a3.pbo or did you make a separate config addon?

    So you've just opened ukf_l115a3.pbo, changed a few lines of the config and repacked it?

    I'm afraid if that's the case, I'd rather you didn't include it - If there are several versions of the same addon floating around in the community with that overwrite the original addon, it causes all sorts of problems.

    The changes you want to make should be possible do do with a small config replacement/appendix addon similar to Robalo's addons; without the need to alter the original .pbos at all.

    Now this is finally sorted, I just want to add - is there any possibility that you can make a non
    ACE version also? not everyone likes to use ACE (me for one) and so would rather it without :-)

    Another thing is, the total download is 354mb right? or its changed now?

    Thanks anyways.

    As soon as he makes a proper replacement config the package should only be a few kb.....at least thats how it is with other replacement configs :-)

    Yea, was thinking that... but what I think he has done is edited the ORIGINAL configs to just do what
    he wants it to do, which is still the same but the hard way :-P

    Only? Like fox says, it should only be around 1kb and contain just a config.php unless the original units have custom actions like flip down NVG's even with that it wouldn't weigh much more.
