RDS compatibility and Faction extensions for Leight's OPFOR Pack

by
Axelius


Description:
This is a couple of config files that adds RDS static weapons to Leight's OPFOR pack armies and adds Iraqi and Afghan Army to Blufor and ISIS, ChDKZ, African and Afghan Militia as Independent. The allocation of RDS weapons have been done with thought to what weapons each faction has or could have their hands on. Units inherit from Leight's OPFOR so it should work with the HLC config.

Groups should work with ALIVE, but as I don't use it myself I cannot guarantee it and I have not tested it.


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.


Included files:
lop_Axe_BluIndep.pbo
lop_Axe_BluIndep_groups.pbo
lop_Axe_BluIndep_Veh.pbo
lop_rds_static.pbo


Future plans:
*Adding a PMC faction akin to the one removed by Leight in v0.6
*Adding Aircraft to the LOP factions
*Compatibility extension for RDS Tanks (Low priority due to overlap with RHS, although I do want the T-55 and T-34)
*Porting ARMA 2 Technicals


Credits & Thanks:
*Red Hammer Studios - Authors of RHS Escalation of which most weapons and vehicles are based.
*Reyhard - Author of RDS and 90% of the compatibility code.
*Leight - Author of Leight's OPFOR pack.
