Norwegian Units

by
Vasilyevich


Description:
This Mod brings you the Royal Norwegian Army for Arma 3. Including normal military in both woodland and desert camouflage. But also specialized forces like sniper teams, FSK (Forsvarets spesialkommando), MJK (Marinejegerkommandoen) in various camouflages. To fight the common Arma 3 'clone soldier' gear randomisation routines give each unit a unique look. And ofcourse there are vehicles, Insignias and much more. While this is not a 100% perfect representation of the norwegian forces, i'm trying my best to bring you the best quality possible - always trying to transport your feedback and whishes in the mod to make it even better. If you want to help me doing so, you can find the source data on GitHub.


Features:
Normal military in both woodland and desert camouflage.
FSK (Forsvarets spesialkommando).
MJK (Marinejegerkommandoen).
Uniform, Head-Facewear, Weapon and Insignia randomisation routines.
Vehicles incl. Tanks, AFVs, MRAPs and UGVs.
Norwegian names for singleplayer immersion.
Much more to explore.


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.
