Hi there everybody, I'm working on a UA Naval Infantry specops mod (actually it's my first mod). I've already submitted the first version of the mod (thought ATM it's still in validation queue: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=29238).

So I'd like to have a forum topic for the mod.

Basically I've done several things I enjoy there, I hope you'll enjoy them either.



So what's it all about: the mod adds the faction of UA Naval Infantry specops equipped with P1G-TAC "Field Toad" and "Steppe Toad" uniforms ( UA Naval Infantry, as well as some other units and services do use this camo in the ATO zone, so it's not some psychedelic "Camouflage Vyshivanka" from some weird stereotype-fantasies as in some other mods).

Have a look at the "Field" and "Steppe" toad camouflages in the presentation video and ArmA 3 field test:










So one feature I implemented myself and enjoy having this little thing is the script that allows you to put the mountain uniforms hood on and off.

Another thing I made because I feel it was lacking in lotsa other mods is randomization of units loadout, like headgear, facewear, vests, backpacks, patches (of course withing the limits of the unit's class) so you don't have "an army of clones" walking around with the same gear.

The same about the vehicles: I made numerous camo options for BTRs (in two categories "Field" and "Navy") used on vehicles in ATO zone and on UA Naval Infantry vehicles, and naturally every vehicle gets randomized combat arms emblem, unit emblem, number, "motiovational", "patriotic" stickers (or doesn't get them, everything's picked randomly).

As for the vehicles the mod has BTR-70, BTR-80, Ural trucks, BM-21, UAZ, Mobile ZU-23-2 on Ural truck base, static ZU-23-2, AGS, DSHKM, 2b14 from RDS:SW and NSV from RHS:RFAF.

I hope you'll like it, and, basically the reason I start this topic: please write your useful suggestions here, since it's my first mod, I could really use some advice, I guess

So, update

you can download the P1G-TAC "Field Toad" and "Steppe Toad" uniforms and equipment only addon here: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=29237

And you can download the Ukrainian Naval Infantry Specops faction addon here: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=29238

And really great thanks to Armaholic for publishing the addons here.

Added 2 hours 19 minutes later:

Still not sure what to do with the hood scirpt.

The question is: should it remove the headgear/facewear automatically. The problem is that some facewear like masks doesn't really fit it, but others perfectly do, and hard-codding such stuff is just wrong, since who knows which addon are you using the uniform with.

And also the problem is throwing the headgear on the ground if there's no room in bags/vests/uniform, some people might not like such approach, lol :(

The creators/owners of the RHS mod have contacted me and asked me to remove your "Ukrainian P1G-TAC "Field Toad" and "Steppe Toad" camo uniforms/gear pack" from Armaholic cause it seems you are using their work without their permission!

If you want your content hosted on Armaholic you will have to remove all content which you did not create yourself and/or have no permission for to use in your work.

Sorry for the late answer and sorry for the problems with that mod, the thing was that I couldn't get the hiddenselections to work to change the textures of the RHS' models, so I changed the path to the texture in the model file and didn't include RHS addons as requirements which was really stupid.

If possible I'd like to reupload that mod which contained the uniforms only (without factions/vehicles) when I add the "Varan" uniforms to them, and make everything correctly and dependent on the RHS addons.

Greatest thanks to Monax for telling me the news about the VTN update that contains RPK LMGs, I've changed the VTN variant of the loadouts (earlier even the VTN loadouts contained RPK autoriflement with HLC's RPK from the AK pack) so now autoriflemen have got the VTN's RPKN.

Not to wait for the next update I simply post a link to the updated VTN armed units .pbo file https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=FD486919B139B2C7!117&authkey=!AMWNc9RiN-jdjo4&ithint=file%2crar you can use it to change the default loadouts into ones with VTN weapons.

Again, I feel it's too early to make an update here on armaholic, so for now I publish it separately (reupload like 600mb for such tiny changes made since the last update so far isn't really wise, I suppose): Fort-221 units and groups https://onedrive.live.com/?id=FD486919B139B2C7%21120&cid=FD486919B139B2C7&group=0&parId=FD486919B139B2C7%21116&authkey=%21AH1fiJr8k1Gr4p0&action=locate

Well... I guess modelling uniforms is a bit too early for me :(

Will have to use ArmA 3d after all, but I guess it's similar enough to the thing I want to make :(

Glory to the heroes!

Thank you for your words, but in that message was talking about the uniform model hasn't appeared yet in the mod, and at the time it surely wasn't okay, I thought about taking existing models instead, but then I still decided to make exactly what I wanted from the beginning and I'm still struggling to make it work properly for coupel of weeks already :(

Wanted to start coding (finally!), ended up creating covered version of a helmet instead =/
And it's probably not going into the mod since it looks just the same as another helmet :(
