CSAT and UKSF Replacement


This addon is a retexture of BI units, that replace standard CSAT uniforms and helmets with more realistic ones, it also features two optional replacements, one add more variety to CSAT special forces, the other change UKSF camo to a more realistic MTP pattern.

All those replacement can run toghether (and I advice to run all of them to have the best effect) , and have NO other addons requirements.

They also do not modify any armor/load/protection value, and only change the visual effect of the units since the loadout has been left untouched, so they're full compatible with any mission or campaign.

In "addons" folder you'll find those files:
"mas_rep_csat", "mas_rep_csat_c" : those are the main replacement files and are needed to run the replacement, they change only uniforms and helmets model and left the units untouched.
It gives to CSAT "indep" uniforms in hex and urban camo, plus Spetsnaz and PASGT helmets to replace the tech ones.

In "CSAT SF and UK optional replacements" folder you'll find the optional replacements, to run those just put the following files in the previous "addons" folder and that's it.

"mas_rep_csat_SF_c" : change the aspect of CSAT spec ops adding mask, balaclavas and shemags, and the black and green jumpers top uniforms, but do not change any loadouts to keep them compatible with allmissions and campaign.

"mas_rep_csat_UK_c" : change the CTRG uniform giving them a real MTP camo pattern, since I prefer this to the original triangular camo.

– Replace CSAT uniform and helmets with independent uniforms in hex and urban camo.
- Replace CSAT helmets with PASGT and Spetsnaz helmets.
- Add new uniforms, balaclavas, shemag to CSAT Spec-Ops to add more variety (optional-but advised).
- Change CTRG triangular camo in real MTP pattern (optional-but advised).
- This addon DO NOT modify any armor/loading/protection value, but only the exterior appearance of uniforms and helmets, and DO NOT change the loadout of the units, to ensure MAXIMUM COMPATIBITYLITY to scenarios and campaign .

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.
