British Military Beret Mod
Hello all, this is my first addon for ArmA 3 for public release: British Military Berets!
Currently it is using the stock Beret model with different textures added to it. I'll look into a custom model to make them look a bit more genuine as you could land a plane on the current beret model.
There is not currently a Beret for the Royal Welsh, Royal Regiment of Scotland (there's several within it!) and the Royal Irish Regiment, all because they either have a hackle or a different shaped beret. At some point I'll be updating to include darkened cap badges for the Royal Marines and the Parachute Regiment. But in it's current state it does provide some useful functionality for other British groups that want to accurately portray their chosen group. Other Regiment's may be added such as Royal Artillery, RAC, 4/73 etc, but that remains to be seen at this stage.
The textures are not amazing (I'm primarily working on learning configs rather than texturing), so if someone who is a textures god wants to get in touch to redo them I'm more than happy for them to come forward and do that.
It currently includes the following Berets:
- The Rifles - Beret_rifles
- Grenadier Guards - Beret_gren
- Coldstream Guards - Beret_cold
- Scots Guards - Beret_scotsGD
- Irish Guards - Beret_irishGD
- Welsh Guards - Beret_welsh
- Guards Para Platoon - Beret_gdspara
- The Parachute Regiment - Beret_para
- The Royal Marines - Beret_marine
- PWRR - Beret_pwrr
- Duke of Lancaster's Regiment - Beret_lancs
- Fusiliers (minus the hackle) - Beret_fus
- Royal Anglian Regiment - Beret_anglian
- Yorkshire Regiment - Beret_yorks
- Mercian Regiment - Beret_mercian
- Royal Gurkha Regiment - Beret_gurkha
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:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
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
Feel free to edit to your hearts content but please give me some credit somewhere and don't re-release (publicly) an edited version without at least contacting me first. You can contact me either as a PM on here or on my groups website at www.3cdobde.net.
