* ArmA2 - Chill xl wip island

    Chill xl informed the community he started working on a new island for ArmA2.
    Quote Chill xl :
    Here are some screens of the map I'm working on. The map is 10 x 10km and based on real height data, elevation ranges roughly from 30m to 1000m.
    The terrain is hilly and mountainious, the highest area is found on the big mountain plateau seen on the screens in the background.
    Alot of terrain is covered by light pine tree forests and alot of rocks. The hills, rocks ans trees around provide good cover and alot of freedom to move / flank. The terrain also gives rahter good overview due to the spaced trees and hill tops.

* ArmA2 - US Vehicle Texture Pack

    Marc15yo continued working on his US Vehicle Texture Pack.
    Quote Marc15yo :
    Schnapsdrosel has agreed to let me add his desert marine soldiers in the config for the desert vehicles. Expect to see them in action on the next release. RicoADF will be working on integrating them into the addon.
    In the mean time until we decide a good russian/ofpfor desert scheme I will finish the usa side as planned with some snow vehicles for the upcoming and current snow islands.

    I figured instead of giving them a snow camouflage, they might look cooler if I covered them with snow. To make them look like they've been doing a lot playing in the snow.
    The First vehicle I've done are the M1A1 and the M1A2 Tusk. they were meant to be tests to see if I could achieve the right look.

    The future for PUKF:

    With the recent departure of two of our old timers leaving the modding scene, there has been slight confusion whether or not PUKF will be still releasing models for Arma2..... Well the good news is YES!
    Our plan is to release all the models that are currently sitting around on our harddrive's gathering dust that we deem fit for release. This list includes the Warrior, (shown below).

    Following on from this great model will be several members of the CVRT family, the Pinzgauer, AS-90 and finally the Mastiff PPV. After the final release we will be then starting a new lineup of fresh "Built for Arma2" models incorporating the latest shaders and engine tweaks, this approach we feel will give you guys high quality placeholder models until the next gen of PUKF models see the light of day. As always we cannot specify release dates, but we are all currently working hard to finish off "one model at a time!

    PUKF Needs you!
    We currenly have a slot available for a config wizkid who lives, loves, and breathes configs! If your heart and soul is everything British military and you want to join a mature, goodlooking, professional team, please PM one of our team members.

    For more info regarding our plans for the future, more news and higher res screenshots, please visit us at
