Tropentarn [ALPHA]


This is a BLUFOR Uniform Replacement adding Bundeswehr 3-Farb Flecktarn aka. Tropentarn (German armed forces desert camouflage). More info here:
This replaces all "BLUFOR" soldiers except heli pilots and scuba divers.
It means you can simply enable the mod and got your BLUFOR Soldiers retextured with the desert camo of the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr), which is called "Tropentarn", anywhere in the game.
You can play all your custom maps without placing new classes or changing a thing.

Tested with:
Arma 3 Alpha 0.55

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/@your_mod_folder_name

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.

And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

To do:
- I would like to add t-shirt retextures in the future but i didnt figure out how to impement it yet.
- Furthermore when i enable "hiddenSelectionsMaterials[] = {};" (custom normal maps) injuries wont appear.
- HiddenSelectionsMaterials[] = {}; on the helmet seems not working at all yet
- Class Wounds {}; doesnt seem to change anything;

Any help is appreciated
