Black BLUFOR Merlin


This is a quick and small retexture of the Merlin, for use in BLUFOR.
Our community simply lacked a proper helicopter to transport troops, as the Ghosthawk carries 8 passengers and our squads have 9 units.
I made it a couple of days ago and waited with this thread until Vade101 gave me his okay in releasing this to the public

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.

It is available under NATO >> Air >> Merlin HC3W.

Credits & Thanks:
Thanks to Vade101 and Da12thMonkey for the [page22659]RAF Merlin HC3a - CH-49 Reskin[/page]. I basically took their reskin and made it black, removed faction designation and moved the unit to the vanilla BLUFOR faction.

License / Disclaimer:
Do whatever you want with it, but credit Vade101 and Da12thMonkey for doing the reskin this is based off.
