hi everyone...upon viewing the "Snow.... Winter... Snowfall? " thread, i decided i would make a universal "heavy winter mod"! this mod will contain all u.s. bis vehicles in all white snow camo! and an air pack as well, which will most likley contain all u.s. bis aircraft in either or all white camo or white and grey snow camo..with all white underbellys(including my u.s.a.f. c-130h) and off corse snow troops!

My current status:

Vehicles:
.all bis hmmwv familly
.all bis 5t truck familly
.all bis m113 familly
.all bis styker familly
.m1a1 abrams
.m1030 motorbike

Troops:
.all bis u.s. army troops(in basic all white..representing the us military heavy winter overcoat\pants, but im trying to ask rocket if i can use his "usec snow troops" as they use pretty accurate overcoats with hood\pants)


My Future Projects

Vehicles:
.snowmobile (if anyone has one or is making one please let me know...i cant make it from scratch)
.all bis boats(will be done shortly)
.all bis SLA vehicles in winter camos
.and more to come..also suggestions are always welcome!!!

Troops:
.heavy winter soldiers (using rockets "usec winter soldiers" if i get permissions and opened models to re-route textures!
.all bis SLA soldiers in winter camo(which is eay to do)


many people are probly thinking..damn he keeps coming out with all these wip projects but never finishes emm...well thats not even close to whats really going on! first, im still very new and cannot do alot of things with addon making! which leads to all my problems....making addons is a process best done with team work(like a military unit..every man doing his specific job! unless u know everything)! and here i am doing it all my self with little experiance as compared to all these "perfesional" addon makers! but i think im going to go about this in a different way..after i get to a comfortable point(even with tons of bug\problems) ill release what i have for other to help me finish..like a free trial..lol!

Current problems: (watch this section as i may update it with my problems and fixes)
. i have all the ground vehicles textured and in a pack..and in-game! how ever a few problems occur. the bis marking is on all vehicles? and the guns still have the constaint muzzle flash, and the guns and wheels do not turn or rotate! -FIXED and is working in-game with out any problems i just needed to add the model.cfg, now all i have to do is add the "tracked vehicles" model.cfg then it will done and ready for release!!!


Want to help?

.I need some one to also help me make a snowmoble! and other o2 uses
.also pics are much aprecated
.and any suggestions and ideas are welcome too!

i will post pics of what i have as far as vehicles go, when i get home from work..i will also try to take pics of all the problems i have with them

PIC's of the Snow HMMWV: http://screenshot.xfire.com/screenshot/natural/8271f8ed30ae11eb35e7c413defa78e69acb4671.png
PIC's of the Snow Stryker: http://screenshot.xfire.com/screenshot/natural/8b38324819c807fd88e23bc5a4a500f0ae59c9c4.png

I need to adjust a few textures to get them to all match, but its good for now!

I commend you for embarking on such a great task. By the way the stuff you have done looks awesome. I'm just wondering if anyone has done a very detailed winter version of upper Sahrani or just a new map, if not that would be great to do some collaberation. Also, once this mod is complete could you maybe do the same for ArmA 2, as Chernarous would be great in winter. I know its quite a big question but was just wondering.

Keep up the good work.

hey man thanks! as far as i know i dont think anyone made a winter "upper sahrani" map, only the "south sahrani" version. but ill try to look more into that! also i do plan to port this to arma2 and possibly re0do all the arma2 versions as well! how ever i dont have arma2 and will not for some time, but if any one gives me the arma2 files needed ill do it! first i want to get this done, i still have a ways to go! oh and for snow maps..may i suggest "klus island"...its a great map and i use it nearly everyday..infact i would look forward to seeing more from the guy who made that map! iv made and still making a few nice "base's" template for it, and a few missions using my winter addons when there done, for anyone else who uses that map! hope to have more info soon...im also currently adjusting the textures to match on every vehicle! best wishes

Dave,

Hey mate - I'm an avid winter mod fan being a mountaineer myself. Have you managed to get the Watkins map working for ArmA2? If so, can you let me know how? Keen to help out with the snow units, I have more recent versions that may prove alot more useful.

Those textures look good. Very realistic, keep up the hard work.

also i wanted to say this is not a "Fictional" thing...the army really is investing into it! it just looks a tab bit dif. but we will fix it once we get better pics of it in rl! and if we can get someone to make it work! if anyone can do the config. please contact one of us...please!!!!

p.s. im also adding straps\harness to the "Snow Bunny" so it looks like ones in real life!

I just been reading this. I am the author of watkins and i still have all the files. If you got interest i can simple read it into arma2 and publish it. however, this will be as-is because i am busy and progressing on a total different arma2 map for a while already.
