AV IndUs (US Army inspired units)


A few BlueFor units created to look like US Army soldiers.
There are lots of weapons added that is currently in service. Like the M4 or the AT4 launcher.

All weapons have good custom sounds to make it a bit more immersive.
AV_IndUs = (AlexVestin, Independent uniforms, US soldiers)

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\

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/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.

Included files:

They are currently listed under NATO/"MEN (IndUs)".
Classnames are available here.

Known issues:
Weapon animations are not done for all weapons.
Uniforms with short sleeves have a weird shoulderpatch bug.
Icons are only temporary.
Probably all weapons need tweaking.
M4 LODs are missing parts.
AT4 has it's sight out when on back.
AT4 is not disposable and working properly yet. It's weak too.
Please let me know if you find something new.
