It's a simple retexturing mod to add a few more civilian units to A3.

I might add them to the addon its suitable : )

Sweet! Great idea.

Maybe you could make some "injured" civilian units to go along with the Red Cross.
Like with visible wounds, bloody bandages or even missing some body parts
Don't know if that's possible but would go great with the Ordnance Disposal unit @=

(Oops, we missed a mine. Call the ambulance!)

Keep up the good work!

Thank you for your feedback Daniel!

Yes I so hope so. My first testers preferred to blow it all up with my other mod but I hope there is some people out there who find the idea of humanitarian aid missions etc appealing.
Clearing minefields can be quite a thrill really, if you do it against the clock / an approaching convoy.

Even if not the units can be used to add some atmosphere to the game. It's partly inspired by BIs Karts red cross charity donation and actually because I really needed some civilian Medics for missions I made.

I even tried my best to make a nurse character but failed miserably so far. That project is still high on my to do list though.

Trying to clear a minefield:

Really scary when you suddenly blow up. Easy to overlook some of them even with the triangles on the screen. Right after taking that picture I had such an accident.

Works in Zeus : )



Not sure if I will add more units or release it with the current scope





Added 17 minutes later:

Excellent idea Xgrunt, thank you

I can easily make some wounded or bandaged civilians. Not sure if I manage to change their behaviour though. Worth having a look certainly.
Changing the models is something over my head right now but I am working on it : )

Really good idea Xgrunt,

Arma Modeling isn't my strenght but this is what i got after messing around a bit:

Bandage around the head :D


A few more, once you get started it's difficult to stop :)



It's also possible to setdamage on civilian units to get wounded units.
Set unConscious though, that doesn't work in A3 at the moment. I hope it will be fixed.

Still working on this one :)



Added a Faceshield to the Helmet. I wouldn't trust it with my life but better than nothing. Respect to all the people who clear mines for real with just such a helmet, a stick and some gloves.

I abandoned the nurse project and I tried my luck with a scuba set. Both too complicated for me sadly. Maybe someone else will make a proper scuba set with bubbles and all someday. Till then mine clearing will only happen on land I guess : )
