Hello there! Today, the 28th anniversary of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, I bring you - the infamous Roof Koreans and ROK Veterans!
I initially made this mod in a single day in the course of about 9 hours, so please forgive any errors with it at this time. I did my best to make most of the units decently unique from one another and to embody a sense of individuality that is often not seen among Arma 3 factions. The mod is not entirely serious and is not entirely balanced I am sure, but for its purpose of recreating (loosely at that) a historical event - I believe it to be fine.
Of course, it is not 100% accurate due to the limitations of Arma 3 and for the fact I wanted it to have a decently small mod list to allow for people to download it without having to hurt their mod list too much. Note, that you need some IDAP gear and the Laws of War DLC in order for the best functionality. Sadly this was unavoidable, due to the exact items being present in the mod that were needed for this mod pack's overall aesthetic.
The mod is mostly meant to be fun and humorous. (there are some crude easter eggs and dark humour hidden in this faction, specifically the group menus. I am sure at least one person will be offended by one of the jokes or simply not get the other.)
I am aware that this is a somewhat controversial mod in concept, but considering Arma 3 is a war simulator where you can dress up as ISIS insurgents blow up Mosques or play as HAMAS soldiers and slot IDF members or just - out right commit suicide bombings in ALiVE, I don't think it will rustle too many feathers.
Despite only taking a day, this one was a little difficult to upload. Mostly due to the strenuous effort of having to crop, save and individually upload the images to Steam itself. It is safe to say I rather have my wisdom teeth pulled out again, than to ever endure this hard ship ever again.
Roof Koreans is a slang term referring to Korean-American business owners who defended their storefronts during the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Images of the shopkeepers standing on rooftops wielding firearms were widely publicized in news media, earning them a reputation for being bold and courageous.
During the Los Angeles riots in 1992, photographs and video of Korean store owners defending their businesses by camping on rooftops with rifles circulated through news media. On January 18th, 2011, the Los Angeles Times published an article about the riots, which highlighted a photograph of several Koreans armed with rifles on a rooftop.
To install Roof Koreans and ROK Veterans (1992 Los Angeles Riots) 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.
