US Task Force Knight

Description:
It’s been a while since I started this project but due to some spare time I finally got to the release.
This pack contain 3 different addons that can be used toghether or separately, they are basically multicam retextures of standard BI US Army and Delta Force units in order to expand the in-game TF Knight US units, adding 5th Special Forces Group ODAs, 82nd Airborne Division and 101st Airborne Division Troops.

In the addons folder you'll find the 3 pbo files with their own v2 signatures files as follow:
    mas_us_5sfg:
      this addon adds 5th Special Forces ODA, you'll find them in the editor under Bluefor- US Army. The pbo adds 26 units to the game wich cover pretty much all the possible SF loadouts, they come in multicam uniforms\combat shirts, the units have their specifics backpack and all the models have full working wounding textures, there are also 3 different types of ghillie suite camouflage that include desert, woodland and multicam ones, this plus the multicam pattern of the standard uniforms gives to 5th SFG units the possibility to operate in all different types of environment.
      In the editor you'll find also 8 different groups balanced for different deployments.
    mas_us_82nd:
      this addon adds 82nd Airborne Division units, you'll find them in the editor under Bluefor- US Army. The pbo adds 36 units to the game wich cover pretty much all the possible light infantry loadouts, they come in multicam uniforms, the units have their specifics backpack and all the models have full working wounding textures, there are also 2 different types of ghillie suite camouflage that include desert and woodland, this plus the multicam pattern of the standard uniforms gives to 82nd AB units the possibility to operate in all different types of environment.
      In the editor you'll find also 9 different groups balanced for different deployments.
    mas_us_101s:
      this addon adds 101st Airborne Division units, you'll find them in the editor under Bluefor- US Army. The pbo adds 36 units to the game wich cover pretty much all the possible light infantry loadouts, they come in multicam uniforms, the units have their specifics backpack and all the models have full working wounding textures, there are also 2 different types of ghillie suite camouflage that include desert and woodland, this plus the multicam pattern of the standard uniforms gives to 101st AB units the possibility to operate in all different types of environment.
      In the editor you'll find also 9 different groups balanced for different deployments.
      Basically all units and loadouts are the same of 82nd units, the only change is the unit shoulder patch.


Features:
You’ll find 5th Special Forces Group-82nd Airborne Div.-101st Airborne Div. in the editor with the following features:
    - All the models HAVE WORKING WOUND TEXTURES.
    - Now all signatures files update to v2.
    - Units are equipped with M4s, and have their own specific loadout.
    - Wide variety of roles, 26 different units for 5th SFG , and 36 for 82nd and 101st AB Div.
    - All environments ghillie suite units and multicam camouflage make units deployable pretty much everywhere.
    - Every unit has is own set of groups, 8 groups for 5th SF and 9 for 882nd and 101st AB Div.
    - New "Engineer" ability for the sapper , and all the other units can hide bodies and use explosives.
    - Featured content rucksacks , all ACU backpack replaced by multicam version.
    - Optional ACE config with ACEX gear available, including ACE "AI talk" module support.
    - 3 Replacement files that replace standard BI US delta force models with the 5th SFG multicam ones (Graves included), and other 2 (one for 82nd and one for 101st) thet replaces all BI US Army units (included pilots, crew, Herrera, Drake and Pierce, standard BI ACU backpack replaced by multicam ones as well), choose one and replay all the game with a new different feeling.


Installation:
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

ACE2 config files Installation:
Just put the ACE2 Optional Configs (called "mas_us_5sfg_ace.pbo","mas_us_82nd_ace.pbo","mas_us_101s_ace.pbo") in the modfolder of your preference and you'll see in the editor only the 5th, 82nd and 101st ACE classes.
This config DO NOT replace original 5th, 82nd and 101st units, instead it only "hide" them in the editor by setting them as "protected", I did in this way in order to get the maximum compatibility and to avoid changing classnames of the units (for mix makers).
As for the normal addon you can choose wheter to use all 3 addons or just one or two of them, just remember that if you're using an ACE config replacement you'll need the respective addon too.
Units and settings are the same as for standard 5th, 82nd and 101st, but they're all equipped with ACEX gear (Balaclava , Gas Mask and earplugs) and weapons (ACEX M4s, plus spotters have rangefiders and kestrel 4500, demo expert uses ACEX explosives like M18 and C4, CQB units like breacher and MP5 operator have tear gas and flashbangs,...).
Units use "English" if Ace AI Talk is enabled.
Units are placed same way as for vanilla game in the editor:
Bluefor - US Army - (5th ACE..82nd ACE..101st ACE..) ... (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - US Army - (5th ACE..82nd ACE..101st ACE..) ... (sorted by different camos).

Replacement Pack Installation:
You'll find 3 different replacement files, you can use the 5th SFG replacement file combined with one of the other 2 replacements in order to have all BI US army and Delta Force units in multicam (included backpack) and working wounding textures; but remember you can't use 82nd and 101st replacement toghether, choose one !
Just choose your preferred unit(from 82nd and 101st), and put the relative replacement file ("mas_us_82nd_repl_us.pbo" or "mas_us_101s_repl_us.pbo") in a modfolder, you'll see standard BI US Army models replaced by multicam 82nd or 101st ones, all with working wound textures and ACU backpack replaced by multicam ones.
Pilots, Crew, Officers, all those models will be replaced by multicam ones as well.
Togheter you can also use the "mas_us_5sfg_repl_us.pbo", in order to replace all the Delta Force models with 5th SFG multicam ones; I decided this way in order to give players the possibility to use one of my previous addon replacements (Ranger, SEAL...) instead of 5th ones, and they'll work same way as well.
Graves, Herrera, Drake, Pierce characters (light and heavy) are replaced as well ... so you can play the campaign again, with a new different feeling.
