Rusty Retexture

by
cosmic10r


Description:
This will be the intial release. Its sat on my harddrive long enough.

This retexture is designed for post apocalyptic game play and was designed specifically for the Ravage mod. They could work for a few things depending on your needs but do not necessarily fit a full Milsim scenario.

The vanilla guns look out of place as a common firearm in the post apocalyptic setting and I started with just an idea of how to get them looking more worn and rusted. Keep in mind I own guns and I realize that in some cases the rust displayed could render a real firearm inoperable so please suspend belief and enjoy the textures for how they were intended. Also please realize I am not an artist, a texture artist, or artsy at all so I am working from the bottom here. (LOL) The real goal was to allow the vanilla guns to become the rare or military quality guns and the Rusted ones to be the default that bandits and others would spawn with.

The vanilla guns seem out of place and this would provide some value to the vanilla gun textures and hopefully make it so that when you found one, you would get a great loot moment and dump the rusted gun for the sweet brand new one...

I had a few moments where it felt odd to be working on crappy stuff people would want to throw away but I digress...

Whether I accomplished that is arguable as some of the early textures were fairly basic and some like EO's favorite Kir look good while others look a tad homogenous and washed out. Since I have come back, some of the textures have improved and I think the latest batch of patchwork guns like the Mar 10 are quite decent. I have included all of the early patchwork tests in an effort to round out the package a bit and provide as much variation as possible for the gear arrays from Ravage.

There are about 45-50 guns in the package (I have since added a bunch more patchwork as pictured in the Ravage thread that are not included in initial release.)

Hopefully Armaholic will host them and from there we may see a steam release but I make no promises on when that may be...

NOTE, There is no key right now. I may add them if needed but I am assuming that most people are playing private cooperative games in which they would not be needing keys. Change my mind.

Edit- v0.2 has a key and is signed. Let me know if it doesn't work right. Thanks EO!

There will temporarily be a doubling up of about 6 rusty guns until those are removed from Ravage. Haleks will remove those in the next update and this will be the only PBO for the rusted weapons
There is some discussion on how to add these to the gear pool arraysby a script or module but at this point the best way is through the gear pool arrays in the ravage module.


Edit-This is now the updated situation. Classname list will be updated to remove Ravage "exclusives" and RR only classes. Ravage will natively support the 8 Ravage weapons and RR guns can be pushed into the arrays via the gear pool.


Installation:
To install Rusty Retexture you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.


Included files:
rusty_retex.pbo


Usage:
For usage instructions and information of how to use the Rusty Retexture please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.

Classnames for Rusty Retexture (also updated in the addon file as the changelog.sqf), add these to the appropriate gear pool arrays that you wish. I have included Patchwork tests prefaced by the PWT tag so if you dont like those pull out the ones that start with that Classname.

Future plans:
Possible work that may happen, no promises
-weapon wear and jamming
-module and/or script to adjust weapons into the Ravage arrays to give the effect of rusted common weapons and rare vanilla weapons...
-release of Rusty retexture of Infinite weapons and NiArms
