ok cool, recommend for changes like that, you could do a new config on top of their config, so you dont have to change the underlying pbo. Changed PBOs with the same name as the original can play havoc with people's versions..

I added the full DAF mod into my Apocalypse mission, will release within the next day or so... Thanks!

Oh, one other thing, Boxer has some issues when you get in the driver and other positions. Seems you aren't inside the vehicle, but actually under it from your 1st person view. Still useable but wanted to let you know.

Thanks! That real nice...this will be our first official mission! I hope i can include it in the DAF package for others to enjoy! About the PBO's ill see what i can do. It was my intention to leave as much PBO's alone as possible. The F-16 Falcon Demoteam Smokewinder script will be moved to the smokewinder.pbo ASAP this is only a test to see if we got the script to turn on and off by useraction. I'm also hoping to make a smoketrail for the Pilatus PC-9 turbo later on and maybe release it as standalone for smoketrail lovers around the world!

I need to talk to Vilas about that, he donated this to our humble cause and i'm not sure what his future plans on this project are. I've already send hime an email! What might be helpfull is a (small) list of problems and things that need to be looked at to make things easier for the developers. At this moment we have someone looking at the Cheetah firing modes maybe he can have a go at this one later on but it all depends on Vilas wishes!

i noticed the Airbus aircraft have weapon pylons on them. Is that intentional?

Also, perhaps, If there is a military paint-scheme version in RL, maybe you could give us that one instead of the airliners. Not sure on the purpose of the KLM paint job.

This was originally a Marine plane thats why it has pylons I have no idea if they can be removed sind we don’t use this Army version here. But sinds it’s the only Airbus / Boeing in Arma this will have to do. The Netherlands does not even have a A319/A320 but only the A330 i plan to remove the A320 completely leaving only the A319 in there i think. It’s just for emersion purposes, a Pilot and Stewardess almost finished to go along with it :)

If you find out what the problem is just say so. So far i have tested the new (Vilas) units C7 & C8 grenade launcher and it works perfectly. But there are 2 different kinds of Dimaco's in the game beside the new Vilas version there is the older A2020 version too and not all units have weapons of the same pack.

Getting ready for a big update adding more stuff and fixing some issues:

If anyone has made any mission with the DAF-A2-mod-pack please share it with the world. I would love to try them and add custom mission to the pack...it will make you famous!

Again: If you would like to help retexture, model, script, make movies or promote, inform (help) in any way? Please! i could really use some help with this massive project!

Your full DAF mod is supported in my Apocalypse mission. You should try it out and it will be a great way of testing your mod out for how they perform in-game in battle.

Also, i can help with scripting and config-work if you need any. just PM me.

PS. The pics look great. What vehicle is that in the first one?

The mission is SP only. I have been kicking around the idea to do a COOP version but there is so much scripting in the mission, i'm a bit scared of doing it.

as for scripting help, PM me and let me know what you need. I can usually put something together if i have some guidelines and best yet, some similar code to work off of.

You are correct. Currently there is no need for any 'special config' to play Apocalypse with DAF units. Just start up the mission and you will see "NETHERLANDS" factions available for you to pick.

Larsiano & team, great work compiling all these add-ons and adding quality touches to them. Looking good!

To help people to create interesting* single player battles involving the Dutch armed forces, I've added support for the DAF add-on to my PlannedAssault web-based mission generator. I've defined ploegen, charlie-teams, PRTL sections, scripted camo'd faces and camo net placement. PlannedAssault already assists you in getting AI manned mortar teams, para drops or heli insertions, close-air support, large formations attacks in your mission for many other add-ons.

_a2_dutch_infantry_w_cv9035nl.jpg _a2_dutch_f16_am_in_demo_livery.jpg _a2_dutch_patria_patrol.jpg

I've ran into one bug and one minor issue issue while testing these generated missions:

- the Hercules hides its cargo when seen from the outside, and when being a passenger (prior to a paradrop) the cargo door is always closed despite it being open (animated) from the outside

- I really appreciate the texture detail on the CV9035NL, now showing the reflectors. However my understanding that these are masked with duct tape in exercises / combat conditions for obvious reasons. See for example this photo.

Regards, William

Thanks for the compliment! And thanks for the mission support! Hope to enhance the mod a lot further in the future! Maybe we can add a useraction to camoflage all the plates but this will have to come later sinds im in need of some O2 knowledge for this :)

I assume your project can be downloaded true your topic?:

Hi,

any chance you can add an Assistant MRAT (Spike ATGM) gunner carrying the "spare rocket" vil_pl_spike_Backpack backpack (from Vilas)?

Wrt the camo'd faces for the LMB (AMB) forces, which are now all identical: One alternative is to randomly pick from the Arma2 faces with green/dark camo, as listed here. The script below just does that, and would add more variety (included darker skin variants) and better reflect the dutch forces.

comment "Customize face of each unit in the group according a profile";
comment "Invoke as: nul = [group this] execVM 'planned_assault\kit\apply_group_face_camo.sqf';";
comment "William van der Sterren, (c) 2011, www.plannedassault.com";

private ["_group"];
_group     = _this select 0;

private ["_max_face_count", "_face_fmt"];
_max_face_count = 87;
_face_fmt       = "Face%1_camo%2";
{
private ["_face_ix", "_camo_ix", "_match"];
comment "Select a random camo pattern";
_camo_ix = floor(random 4) + 2;

comment "Select a random face";
_face_ix = 1 + floor(random _max_face_count);

private ["_face_nr"];
if ( _face_ix < 10 ) then { _face_nr = format["0%1", _face_ix]; } else { _face_nr = format["%1", _face_ix]; };

_face = format[_face_fmt, _face_nr, _camo_ix];
_x setface _face;
} forEach (units _group);

true

Regards,

William

Agree with all the positive comments. It’s a really great mod, have been using it a little over the past few days, will be using it a lot more in the future.

Thanks for sharing it...:)

Thanks for the compliments! And also for the useful hints. I hope the mod may grow a lot in the future and we can enhance it a lot further :)

Ill ask Vilas for the backpack this does not sound like a problem to realize. I had some plans to work on the camo faces and your script can really help me out with that, ill try to implement it if i can work out how to exactly (in config.cpp im thinking?).
