UN Units 2030


This is a simple Retexture Addon adding the UN Faction with various fictional units and uniforms.
India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Ethiopian units were added as these are currently the top UN contributing nations.
It is a work in progress so not every feature or texture is finished. Some were actually done in a hurry
More detailed textures will be added in the future. I promise

-adds a bluefor UN Faction
-many vanilla units got a UN retexture of variable quality (see first pic)
-Altis, generic Woodland, generic Desert, Ethiopian, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Indian UN Troops
-A few Vests and Helmets, Hats and other things

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:

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.

This is still WIP, I might redo/update some textures at a later stage as some textures are just a quick sloppy job (Patrol Boat, Transport Heli).

Known issues:
my crude disarming script for the MQ4 won't work on dedicated server

Credits & Thanks:
-Nevbox texture templates (used for some of the uniforms)
-Uninamer for testing
-Ranwer for scripting input

UN Units is released under Arma Public License (APL)
Play around with it, modify it as you wish as long as you give credit : )
You may extract textures and use them in your missions using the setobjecttexture command if you want.
It will work with most units.
