TFA - Naval Special Warfare Gear


This is a mod retexture pack has been in the works since Arma 2, but mostly with Arma 3 and its my first public release after years of internal stuff.
I wanted to release this publically as a thank you to the community and BIS. This is a mod pack made for my unit, Task Force Apache, and works beautifully so far in A3. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.

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:

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:

Classnames can be found in the included readme file!

Known issues:
Minor clipping issues with MICH/PVS14 combo.

Future plans:
+ 5.11/Eagle backpacks
+ US Navy Officer/Enlisted Dress Uniforms
+ New chest rig models

If you're interested in helping out in any way, please let me know. I'm looking for a modeller to help me.

I developed this while using Tonic's Virtual Ammo Box and virtual arsenal. It's a lot more convenient (IMHO) this way, but not required. There are no requirements for this mod other than A3.
For full class names and change log see the mod change log included in downloaded file.
I’m in dire need for another modeller. If you’re interested, please PM me immediately.
