US ARMY SPECIAL FORCES for ArmA2

by massi

Hi all,

I’ve updated my US Army Special Forces to version 1.05. FINAL ARMA2 ONLY VERSION

This should be the last update (unitll OA off course ) , in this update I’ll redone the ACU textures , and added the new ACEX optional configs, in order to include the ACEX speaking module.
I’ve also added a new set fo replacements, that allow the player to replace the ACEX US Army Special Forces units, with the preferred camouflage.

The Units will be found in the editor under BLUFOR >> US Army Special Forces,(same for the groups), sorted by the different camouflage of the uniforms and gear:

- SF Light Gear ODA (ACU): wearing ACU uniform.
- SF Light Gear ODA (Multicam): wearing multicam uniform.
- SF Light Gear ODA (Woodland): wearing woodland BDU uniform.
- SF Light Gear ODA (Desert): wearing 3 colors desert DCU uniform.
- SF Heavy Gear ODA (ACU): wearing ACU uniform.
- SF Heavy Gear ODA (Multicam): wearing multicam uniform.
- SF Heavy Gear ODA (Woodland): wearing woodland BDU uniform.
- SF Heavy Gear ODA (Desert): wearing 3 colors desert DCU uniform.
- SF "ghillie" recon\snipers : wearing desert or woodland ghillie suite.

As always please report feedback, advices, problems or any ideas… I’ll be happy to keep working and improving the pack…thanks to all of you for the support and appreciation you gave me!


Changelog v.1.05:

v1.05 date 25/Apr/2010
-Totally redone ACU textures.
-Fixed some others textures.
-Update ACEX optional configs (enabled ACEX voices module).
-Added ACEX US Army SF replacements.

Installation.

Put the addons in the "mod folder" of your preference, you will find the units in the editor under:
Bluefor - US Army Special Forces (sorted by different camos and gear)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - US Army Army Special Forces (as above).

ACE2 files Installation.

- file: "mas_usa_spec_ACE2_cfg_repl.pbo"
You can use the OPTIONAL ACE2 CONFIG that you'll find in the "ACE2 config" folder that replace SF weapons with the ACEX ones, and add some of the great ACE2 stuff (like gasmask, balaclavas, ecc...), this way my SF classes will be automatically replaced.

- file: "mas_usa_spec_ACE2_new_cfg.pbo"
If you have problems using the previous file, look inside "ACE2 congif >>> backup ACE config (new classes) " : there you'll find another replacement file that instead of overwriting my SF classes, create new ones ( BLUFOR>>> US Army Special Forces ACE) using ACEX weapons and equipment (same as above).

IF YOU WANNA USE THOSE FILES ACEX IS REQUIRED.
both files are SIGNED, choose the best solution for you, BUT REMEMBER TO USE ONLY ONE AT A TIME!!!

Replacement files Installation.

In the folder "replacement files" you'll find 4 replacement file, all SIGNED , for each camos.
Just choose the one you prefer and it'll replace standard BI force recon models with the SF ones in your preferred camo.
Same things for ACE2 SF units replacements.
Using the replacement of your choice , it'll replace ACEX US Army SF models with the camouflage you choosed.

AS SAID ABOVE USE ONLY ONE AT A TIME !!!


Bugs.
Tested both in vanilla game and in ACE2, everithing is working well, without any errors in RPT or sort of problems.

Thanks.

Thanks to BI for the great game and to all the community for their great support and addons!
Thanks to all Armaholic staff and users for the support !

Looking good mate, but yeah....you should turn up your ingame settings when taking screenshots as this low detail level does not do your units justice mate ;)

Really really nice units. They look AWESOME ingame. All the camos look very sharp and clear. I really like these guys.
Please continue making these sort of awesome retextures!
But as Fox said, turn up your ingame settings when taking screens of your addons, I was hesitant on downloading these guys because from those images they really dont look that great but once I saw them in game they looked great!

One more thing, do you think you could make an ACE version so these guys use those kickass descam Socom M4's and such?:D

[edit]
Hello,

As requested I'm uploading a couple of "sliglty better" screens of the units.
Untill my new PC arrives is the best I can do, but as soon as new machine arrives



Could you please update the download page with these screens?
Thanks a lot.


As said better screens will follow...soon hopefully

hope you'like them

cheers

Would you like me to take some high res screenshots of your units? I play at 2048X1152 so they look very nice!!
I'll post back when I have taken the shots.

Here are the screenshots. If you'd like Massi, you can ask a Mod here to replace the old images with these ones.
ACU:




DCU:






Multicam:






BDU:




I hope you like them! I can upload them on Photbucket if you don't feel like clicking on all the tiny pictures.

Cool. They look like Spetsnaz Soldiers.
If you want, when you units are in Beta stage, you could send them to me via PM and I could take some nice screenshots before you release them.

One criticism on the guys is that they are a bit too orange. :satisfied
