The Viking PMC Mod is a clan-created game overhaul to fit the PMC lifestyle within arma communities. Originally created by Curious, a development team has been established to create exciting new assets for the community.
It aims to bridge the gap for PMC-style communities by providing relevent assets that are used by companies in the real world.
It features various improvements to the game, such as UI improvements, customized reskins of gear + vehicles as well as custom assets, quality of life improvements and more!
All of the gear with a logo on will have a counter-part to allow public users the enjoyment of our content.
You will notice that some of the retextured gear is not from the vanilla game. This is so other communities can use the modded retextures as well. You can take a look at the Viking PMC Extensions Mod for an example on how to add the gear. (Or use that mod itself and ignore the dependency warnings.)
This mod includes a lot for the group. As the group suggests things, we attempt to make them happen!
You can join our development discord[discord.gg] to discuss the mod and it's features with developers and other community members.
You can view the GITHUB (WIP)
page to see how frameworks can be used and read information about the mod.
The follwing list is generalized:
Custom music and sounds
Custom retextures of uniforms, vests, backpacks, headgear, facewear, items and more
Custom retextures of vehicles
Unique, Custom 3D models incl. Weapons, vehicles and gear
Various game Mechanics (adjust the game to our liking)
Custom factions (both friendly and hostile) - Requires Viking PMC Mod Extensions
To install Viking PMC Official Mod you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page
for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
Due to an error on my part (Curious) a temporary mod has been setup to allow the settings for frameworks to work without the extensions mod. This will be updated in V1.1.5, see the mod here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2060561572
