Cap with interchangeable flag patch

by
pomigit


Description:
This mod is pretty simple, I've taken the sample model of the baseball cap released by bohemia interactive and added a patch to the front which can be changed separately to the main cap texture. The model has been updated with two camo selections "camo1" (the main cap texture) and "camo2" (the flag patch)

I decided to make this after receiving many many requests for custom versions of my pmc mod with specific clan logos, particularly caps. Down the line if I make my own uniforms or BI release other sample ones Ill see if I can do the same there.

I'm offering this completely open source. Feel free to edit and change as you see fit. I've made it dead easy for people relatively new to modding to use, all necessary files to make the mod work are included in the download. This includes:
  • MLOD models (theres both normal and backwards facing version) in case you want to modify them further, change texture paths, etc.
  • ready made config file
  • sample flag texture
  • normal map
  • Flag patch PSD template - All you need to do is slot in your flag/clan logo, change the border colour as required and save as tga or png.
  • Ready to go packed pbo (for those that will just create classes in their own mod

Installation:
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\addons\

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_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

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:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
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.
