French Intervention Forces [BETA]


Here is an addon about French Intervention Forces (GIGN/RPIMa) Units. (actually addon including GIGN and French 1st RPIMA)

- Units are wearing light and heavy suits with balaclava or assault Helmet removables. Balaclava are based on open sources files from Kiory balaclava addon.
- Including also ballistic shield for heavy units (still need some work about damages).
- For heavy assault units, assault helmet+balaclava are removable but actually in only one part defined as headgear class.
- Assault units with shield only carry shield and don't have weapon yet.
- Flashlight on shield is functional on night.
- Units are configured with weapons from R3F French Weapons Pack and so this addon is required

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

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_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\

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.
