UN Units 1990

by
Sabre[Dust]


Description:
UN Units of the 90s for Arma 3

As my modding time is very limited these days I publish this in the current state. A few textures, especially the ZSU are not really done yet :)
I made some pakistani and indian uniforms as both of these countries contribute a lot to UN missions (at least nowadays).
Please don't bug me about realism. I did not research which vehicles and items were really used by which country.

Future plans include more soldier classes and better adjusted loadouts


Features:
Thanks to Reyhard, Kaelis and Chairborne this UN addon features among other things:
  • UN versions of Mi24 and Mi8,
  • UN UAZ, BMP, T72 in a few variants,
  • Semi realistic Pakistani and Indian Uniforms,
  • Arma 3 Zamak Trucks, sorry no Urals so far


Installation:
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.


Included files:
sab_un1990.pbo


Usage:
This is a compilation,

My part is released under APL. You may use my textures and the things I made, as long as you give credit (for example extract textures and use in missions directly).

For the other parts you have to contact the original authors!
Some parts are not free to modification!



Credits & Thanks:
Thanks to Reyhard, Kaelis and Chairborne for giving me permission to use their addons in this compilation!
Armaholic team,
Everyone who contributed with suggestions on forum

Small update since I got permission from Kaelis to use his Mi24/UAZ port : )

just missing an Ural really to get it done. On the other hand the Kamaz might do too, since versions of it are in use for many years as UN vehicles if I am not mistaken.

Hey man, congrats on the release. They look great and cannot wait to use them. Now just some feedback or suggestions. There is a mod that adds armed UAZ's to arma 3. Might be cool to add in with the others so there is a bit more variety. Cause un is really packing a punch right now with all these tanks :D Anyways here it is, http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=25312 the mod maker has finished making his mods and I believe he said anyone can use them to there liking as long as they give credit for the port. I would just check on that just to be sure. Great mod looking forward to updates in the future :)

Thank you J.

Good idea. Yes as far I know Aplion made his addons accessible. Will look into it sometime in the future : )

The T72s and the Mi24 are actually realistic and have been in use, the shilka probably not but I added it anyway.

I know sudden has a ural that he may let you use. Just gotta ask really nice and say please :P http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24907 also BTR-60, and BDRM-2 are with it and may fit nicely with the pack. But if your going for "realism" then I don't know if the UN used those in shared stock. In arma 2 there was a M113,M113 Ambulance and I think a M163 UN variants so you could use those from sudden to, again if he lets you. Also I am re downloading the pack because the UN helmet had no textures for me, if I just installed it wrong then its an issue on my end and if I still have the same problem you may need to look into it. Great work keep it up :)

Added 2 hours 12 minutes later:

Ya I re installed the mod, no helmet textures. You may want to check that out.

Do you have the missing textures from a bit further away or all the time, even from close up?
It might be a messed up distance LOD, I should be able to fix that easily.

Yes I'd love to use suddens Ural/M113. Last time I checked they didn't have a hidden selection though, so I wouldn't be able to change the texture. When I have time I will ask him if he plans to change that.

Thanks for your feedback

They are missing when I load in as any unit with a helmet on, I used VAS and the Virtual Armory and same deal. Just shows up white.. I will get the error that I get when I relaunch my game next.

yes do please. So far I could only reproduce that the helmet texture dissapears when at a distance. Just odd I never noticed while playtesting in Zeus mode. Made a fix for that but want to make sure thats really the prob before I post it.


Hey all, small update: I am concentrating on my other mods and actually playing the game these days : )
Massi updated his african conflict addon and really has it covered imho. So I recommend using his addons if you want UN Units of this style.

by the way, since I am abandoning this to concentrate on my other stuff - here is all the source data. Anyone may use or better improve on the textures for their own mods etc.

Thread can be locked, would be great ty : )
