Quote Chairborne : This is another port i made from the Sample Models, with minor modifications of my own.
I've had this in the works for a long time, mostly because i got busy with other projects and for some technical problems i had a hard time solving.
There are some features i meant to implement (dampers, decent MFD, reworked interiors) but that would take even MORE time and i don't feel like keeping this for myself any longer.
Some of you will be pissed because of the aircraft loadouts i guess but i think the current loadout is balanced enough, they are fun enough without giving pilots god-like firepower that can obliterate whole AOs on their own.
As for the cockpit, as i mentioned earlier i meant to rework it because it's mid-low detail right now but that might take some time and i still have to get the hang of it, also there is the huge limit of PiP that doesn't allow much customization and doesn't have enough detail to be an effective navigation tool (i'll be leaving links to feed tracker tickets if you want to help out).
Good news is, i did some minor tweaks i'm really satisfied with, especially collision lights and materials/textures.
They still have all the STOVL features from A2 and can take off and land safely on the LHD, i'm pretty sure that is also true for the Nimitz.
Feel free to provide feedback and i'll see what i can do to make this better.
Have a nice day!
654wak654 released an updated version of the Simple Rank Patches addon on the Armaholic forums.
Quote 654wak654 : Simple Rank Patches makes this small addition to the game where it will automatically add their ranks to all infantry's shoulders using the insignia system. No extra work is needed, the rank patches are automatically added in any mission where the AddOn is running.
The included Altimeter will be reading Barometric Pressure. ASL, Above-Sea-Level. You should know the Altitude of the DropZone and plan ahead. Tracking over 2km while in FreeFall is possible; more if under canopy for a HAHO. The jump location and altitude will be random to start. Option to re-route Flight possible. System should work for most ArmA Maps.
There is a helmet-view complete with custom sounds and dramatic environmental effects! Your visor can (and will) fog-up, freeze over, can crack, etc. There will be thermal layers and accurate and varied temperatures displayed for most ArmA Maps and Climates. The temperature will also fluctuate with months, seasons, and time-of-day.
The Altimeter can be displayed by using your 'Watch' button while geared-up in your HALO Gear for any Keyboard or Gaming Controller. If you are NOT Geared-up properly, the JumpMaster will deny your Jump and you will have to recheck and repack your gear. The temperature at extreme altitude can reach -70*F with little to NO Oxygen!
Thermal Jumpsuit, Helmet, and Oxygen Supply IS required. ALL your Gear will be saved and packed into the Pack attached onto your front so you can Jump into the AO fully combat-ready! Water landings possible (and encouraged) for the Black-Ops operative you know you want to be!
Burnes15thsubmitted an updated version of his Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) addon which he released on the BI forums.
Quote : A functioning LCAC capable of carrying vehicles during an amphibious assault. Currently only water-capable.
Please watch the instructional video for details on its use.
New version of the LCAC is up. still no cosmetic improvements but I've altered the ramps, made the deflation animation go lower and increased thrust response to make slow maneuvers easier. (for anyone who has the link saved or has it linked on a website this update is at a completely new location, the old link will still go to the old version so please use the new link on the main page)
here is another instructional video that shows how to safely load vehicles on from the LPD and explains a few other caveats not properly addressed before.
SpectreRSG informed us he released an updated version of his TFA - Naval Special Warfare Gear addon on the BI forums.
Quote SpectreRSG : So I had a small bit of free time this week. I'm going to push out an update below. Regardless, I just checked the fatigue, armor values on current BI stuff and mine.. My armor values are still higher than BI and all my mass values are lower than BIS. Unless I'm misunderstanding everything my stuff is still stronger and lighter than vanilla stuff - so fatigue and armor should be fine. But I made tiny tweaks here and there. Stuff may not even be noticeable.
Anyways, this is going to be a final update for a while or until I have a want to add something or have to fix something. I truly hope people enjoy this mod and continue to use this. This will also be on Steam Workshop shortly. This is v3.90 and includes the following, but note that for the new camos, I will not be tweaking much as I didnt even want to include them or put time into them as other modders have done the stuff to hell already, if someone wants to open it up and make a tweak for me, I'm open to that however.
- Kryptek Camo (Highlander, Nomad, Mandrake)
- ACU Camo
- ECH and FAST DOU helmets.
- DOU Lite and Heavy Platecarrier
