My first attempt to create a faction for ArmA 3. I hope you enjoy it. This is a simple AAF Retexture, but I will add OPFOR and BLUFOR units later. This is STILL a BETA, so expect to get some errors. If anyone found some errors, please post them in the comment section.
Here a bit of story:
The Chimera is a UN Strike Force founded after the Rise of the CSAT/Cartel. The UN isn't satisfied with the US implication in this war, so the UN founded a Joint Strike Force called "Chimera".
Chimera is based on the Act of Aggression faction, an RTS game coming in September 2015. If I have time, I will make a Cartel faction. I don't think that I need to make an US Army because there are already so many.
-Many Indep and NATO units
-More coming soon...
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
