Hello! First time poster here! I'm a Photoshopper/skinner and long time OFP/ARMA player. Finally decided to go and make my own mod. I hope I don't offend anybody, because it's a actual wargroup that is still at war today. The whole reskin has no meaning to me except I was missing a faction between the Takistan army and militia maybe even a middle eastern faction that can fight another "Arabic" faction. My goal is to "copy" the Takistan militia and reskin them in a more blackish colored skins (based on IS) and more vehicles (Coyota, SUV etc).


Roadmap
- Reskin all the Takistani militia men to IS'ish colours (WIP)

- Add logo's or do total reskin's on militia vehicles (WIP)








All the above is working in my game. I added all the skins to my main .pbo's (characters_e and vehicles_e). The part I still have to learn or maybe if someone could help give me the resources needed below.

- Add an IS group under OPFOR (I'm still struggling to cut out the militia faction from the characters_e.pbo)

- Add some more plausible vehicles to IS faction. (I want to recreate IS in the ARMA universe so stolen Takistan army vehicles are possible but so are the US vehicles and armor from "Iraq")(T-55, T-72, desert skin M1A1, M113, BMP-1)

- Add Takistan militia men with reskinned balaclava. (elite group with stolen "Iraqi" US weapons)

- Make it a mod .pbo so others can use it.

- Optional: Takistan army copy to resistance side to "recreate" Arabic faction vs Arabic faction with aid from west.


Unit Roster (concept)

OPFOR -> IS
Men
- Takistan militia (IS reskins of the Takistan militia Men roster)

Men (special)
Plausible
- Units with US equipment. (US helmets, M16A4's)
- Full black outfit and balaclava. (Takistan milita outfit with skimask or maybe just a black reskinned Cher Guerilla?)

Future fictional units
- Higher command unit
- Better and more expensive branded items.
- IS unit mixed with Immortals from 300 (IS black skin with mask and silver attributes)

Armorered
M113 (white with big logo's)
M113 (default skin with added a logo)
T-55 (default skin with added a logo)
T-72 (default skin with added a logo)
T-72 (black version with big logo's)
M1A1 (default skin with added a logo)

Vehicles
HMMWV (default skin with added a logo)
HMMWV (black version with big logo's)
Trucks
Civil SUV's

Air
MI-8 (black version with big logo's)

Great idea. My favorite terrorists where until now the FFAA Arab terrorists. But this could change that. What you could also do is give some of them 'western & modern' weapons that they seem to have quite a lot of. Would it not be an idea to put these guys under the guerilla / independent faction? If you need help with the config & mod files i could lend a hand.

# Marwan Mansour : Hi,
Can you post the logo your using ?
i know arabic ,i tried zooming in but the text isn't clear

Thanks for helping! This is the logo I'm using. Don't know what it says but they all use this.


Is there any other slang I could use to "decorate" vehicles and outfits?

I think the IS faction needs to be the OPFOR because US and other arabic factions fight together against IS. I found a useful webpage that shows all armored vehicles in use. Mostly a copy of Takistan, but they captured some US spec vehicles like the M113 (desert skin) M1A1 (desert skin) and HMMWV's. I would like to add black HMMWV's and MI-8 for the more "elite" group. And thank you for your help! I'm still working on my skins only but if someone would make the IS group mod with vanilla skins it would go a lot faster.


The new warlord outfit:




Added 2 hours 8 minutes later:

New sniper/team leader and M113




Can't be a proper IS fighter without your fresh white kicks!

These are excellent!However there is a small addition you make for a more authentic IS.I once saw a picture of an IS terrorist wearing an american made MICH helmet without the attachments which was probably captured from Iraqi Army supplies.We should also assume that these guys are in possession of NVGs.Again great mod and really looking forward to release.

Thank you! Yes they captured lots of Iraqi equipment consisting out of older US equipment. Right now I'm focusing on default unit re skinning. And then I want to create a Faction called Islamic State under OPFOR with a group called Men (which consists of a Takistan milita copy with reskins(maybe some tweaking)) and later a group of Men (special)(with more US spec weaponry). But thank you for your input! I'd really need community input to make a ARMA/IS plausible faction.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_current_equipment_of_the_Iraqi_Army.
All of the equipment could be in the hands of the IS.

# Marwan Mansour : can you choose a different logo,i think this logo is pretty insulting to be in a game ,look for a logo without Allah's name ( اللة ,محمد) thank you

Thank you. That's the text in the circle or the top text? Can you tell me what it is saying? If I swap 2 text parts with each other will it be oke?

All reskin units are completed now. Some more screens.

# Marwan Mansour : both,they are basically the same
in english its " There is no god but god ,Mohammad is His Messenger
" ( Read about it here ) , its not the same meaning as it is in Arabic.
if you could remove the text or actually blur the text or something that would be great.
thank you very much

What if I do it like this?




Bluring is for The Sims and leaving the text will just be black skins only.

If you find it insulting then why not just not download the mod.
This flag and text is being used by Islamic state so why should it be changed?

Mirror text won't work. That looks horrible. And my other creation just doesn't look as good as the original flag. It can be a bit insulting because these wars are going on right now.

I'm going to need to ask help from a veteran ARMA modder. If someone could make me a vanilla mod with the new IS faction that would be great. Been busy with this all week and it keeps my reskinning on hold. So a collaboration mod would be the best option I think. Feel free to contact me! I really want to finish this mod fast as possible.

How is it insulting? Its not.
Your best bet is to open up a similar mod and look how its done.
