I feel the time has come to release my international units pack to compliment my Naval Special Warfare pack. This is designed to work with Virtual Ammo Box and now Virtual Arsenal. Nationality flags are listed under unit insignia. Also includes backpacks, helmets, PVS-14 MNVG, and vests - with modified mechanics.
Each nation listed below has a Desert and Woodland variant and a Rolled Sleeve (RS) variant:
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.
For usage and information instructionss of how to use these TFAx - International Units please refer to the included documentation.
I'll be including British MTP in an upcoming release.
If anyone has any first hand experience with any of the uniforms in this pack can provide feedback, I'd be grateful.
Georgia and various countries patches are included.
I left the shoulder patch flags off as various countries dont seem to use rectangular patches like the US does. The plastic material layer is still there, I'm unsure how to get rid of that. Regardless, this pack is meant for general uniform usage - germany, france, US stuff in this pack are known to be exported internationally so putting shoulder flags on them would limit the usage of this pack.
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.
