December has already started and Christmas is soon to come! Let us have the chance to celebrate ingame too!
Included so far :
1 Wearable Christmas Hat
2 Christmas Hats (Items)
5 Christmas Socks
4 Wearable Christmas Sweaters
9 Christmas Presents
2 Wooden Sleds
1 Christmas Tree
6 Christmas Balls
1 Christmas Star
9 Christmas Candles
2 Christmas sleighs
4 Christmas reindeers
4 Christmas polar bears
Christmas textures for the MX SW 6.5mm, the MXC 6.5mm and the Vermin .45ACP
Christmas textures for the MK 20 Plain, the MK 20 GL and the P07
Needed classnames :
To install Christmas Pack 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.
Depends on what I will be able to create or import. Some objects are already in development.
Q: How often will updates come out?
A: The plan is for an update to come out every week.
Q: What could delay an update?
A: The university classes along with their assignments need so much time! Along with that only the process of testing a model needs hours. Even when the model is ready Arma might not accept it. Or it accepts the model but not the textures. It is a mess.
Q: Is there something we can know for sure?
A: After this addon is completed I will be making no other. The process is too painful and time consuming.
Q: Has this addon been tested?
A: Many times actually in the editor. I have seen Arma open up so many times in the past few days. Aaaaaaa!
Q: Has this addon been signed?
A: It has indeed. The key for servers is also included in the file. If something is missing please let me know.
Q: Where can I find the items in the editor?
A: The classnames are such that using the term Christmas will show all items.
As do missions addons are also meant as gifts and a thank you is more than enough!
If you however want to gift back you can send steam purchasable items here
Hope you like the above guys! Any comments and feedback will be appreciated. First addon so hope its of Arma 3 class!
