"Forze Armate di Capraia" Shaping Alternative History

Recommended Posts

no chance for backpacks on the A2 vanilla inf, you would need to fix that in the model, which is obviously impossible. You could give them the ability to use backpacks in the config, but they will not be visible on the back when worn. You either have to use the OA models or look for someone who is willing to let you use his custom models.

Well either way can't really be bothered with backpacks however backpacks work on them, well tested and ACE backpacks work without a problem, I believe the normal infantry has OA and A2 + ACE backpacks working without a problem, didnt test the infantry but will later.

Reason I used those models is because I do not want BSF look too modern but totally forgot that they have a backpack on, if anything I might just ex-change the models that have backpacks to differ ones one day.

I was about to do a Police for the mod but than I forgot its military oriented xD

P.S. If anyone has a good camouflage for vehicles please let me know! I might need something that will fit the terrain and will look not terrible as my shitty work on M60A3 camo >.< would really appreciate it

And a last update for the Brigata Forze Speciali, all units done, here is full team + Scout unit pictures and as well now the Scout and Commander will use G36C's however in the pic I messed up and gave them G36K's.

Sniper uses M40A3.

Sadly no idea how to get rid of the static backpack's from some units because its BIS done but I know its possible by someway ofc not editing the model but no luck finding... Either way I'm waiting for further permissions to add stuff and T-55AM2 will be up soon.

Hope you like it and please once again give me suggestions!

EDIT: I will try to make the M60A3 look a bit better than now but that shall be done later on.

Camo on the soldiers should be smaller. It's currently waaay too stretched out, which is why it looks so blurry... Not to mention it's too dark also.

I know that which I noticed in a first guy, even tho I did multiple layer's to make it not stretched out still didn't get to make it look good... I couldn't make 20 layers, the size of one .paa would of be around 20mbs or so...

If possible to be provided with bigger resolution of the camo I would of re-make them completely.

So I promise if I can get a bigger texture by any chance I will re-do BFS and and actually might change some models to get rid of the backpack guys.

EDIT: Managed to do one quick thing, gonna do quick re-texture and see if the camo is still stretched out.

Well managed to get it fixed a bit, just need to darken it a bit and I will show it to you.

EDIT 2:

arma2oa_2013_01_18_04_39_35_037.png

Now this is not scratched out AT ALL I have made 2048x2048 .png file of the camouflage so I have not stretched it out what so ever and here is the 2048x2048:

http://www.picstation.net/pictures/5cbf36b3d5b2b519a6068d7608cbf386.png (6006 kB) (8MB)

And if you look at the one you provided me:http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/7486/multiland.jpg , the layout of the camouflage is the problem as well so It is really not my fault it might not look 100% realistically the same + please take the models to the consideration.

Anyways I will be going with the current setup as you can see on the new BFS unit, it is at least looking 90% the same as real multiland.

EDIT 3:

Well looks 100% better than the old ones :P

Its darker? well lets say Capraian's wanted darker camo :P

Now I shall go sleep because I have been working on BFS since yesterday morning... I will update the topic with full team.

M60a3 would be fine for a camo green, for this small army could use M151 of Vilas

Finally got 4 units done, re-made them completely.

I know I said I will post when all of them are done but just to show they look better than previous ones.

^ Couldn't put more than 10 so those are the rest.

Now you can really tell they look better :P

Once I get stuff done, I will re-do the Infantry with better camo quality.

Hello again!

Didnt have much to do and didn't feel like finishing off the BFS so I decided to re-work the armed units aka M1117 and M60A3, M1117 now comes in Desert and Woodland camouflage.

M60A3

Im really kinda proud of how the M60A3 texture came out :3 as well pardon if the colors ((darker or lighter)) might happen, I tend to fiddle with the contrast and so on and than forget to do the same in the other one...

EDIT: By mistake I have uploaded a .paa file of the Woodland M1117 which has masked out lights because I was rushing it, sorry, I got it fixed.

As well mod is pretty much coming to the end, its a small island and a small military after all, after it is released I will be not adding anything new nor editing because I might start working on another project :P

Once I get replies and mods I requested back in PM and get them into FAC I will add them, fix some script bugs I made in my config.cpp's and than make NON ACE version as well and I shall release it once I'm done. :)

great mod, can not wait to try M151 and the p-9 are beautiful :yay:

Indeed the P-9 is beautiful but too bad its a bit buggy but still love it :P done a little vid of flying with it in Capraia ((AMC P-9)) ((Had to upload it on vimeo so youtube won't get mad down south for the music and block my acc ;p))

As well ending the BFS, one last unit added, Automatic Riflemen - MG36

ACE versions to be honest is ready but ACE FAC will be released when I will get replies from Puma helicopter if I will get the permission or not and awaiting for R0adki11's T-55AM2 once I get permission or not I will work on non ACE ver and upload both of them.

As well I have fixed every config.cpp bug I managed to create when doing the mod xd

As you can see each unit has different names, max firstnames is 57 | surnames 113, I might put more FirstNames and round it up to 100 later on.

Why not use Oerlikon 20mm AA guns rather than the ZSU? Would make more sense and keep a more western European feel.

Hey this looks very promising i know it looks like you have uniform and weapons picked out, but ill just throw my two cents in, you could go with an older italian military look for instance.

The old San marco pattern camouflage from the 80's or the older desert camoflauge, even the older Italian OD uniform wouldnt be a bad choice they used for a territorial army or militia, as for weapons I agree your heading in the right direction, with Famas older f1 style or m16's, but as a european and formerly somewhat italian HKG3's wouldnt be uncommon nor would a beretta bm59/62 which is nothing more than a italian version of a m14.

*edit*

Just missed something thought id include it, you could try talking to the pedagne mod team they had several APC's and AA that would work appropriately and you also could if you wanted the British centurion tank, since britian exported tons of those.

Will try to search for the italian San Marco camouflage or simply OD styled and I might do a militia as well :)

About APC, FAC only has AFV M1117 Guardian now with this one vilas only made that 3 ppl can be inside so FAC need some IFV but not really sure what kind of.

For AA, I dont want to give them APC's but something similar to Static or Ural ZSU.

Centaurion? well they already have smexy beast M60A3 and T-55AMV so thats enough for tanks

No attack helicopters for FAC, they are small army not USMC & US Army :)

As I wrote before, they will use if permission will be given Puma with 20mm guns on it, pretty much what you need to penetrate some armor ;p

For resupply trucks I have better idea my friend, once vilas releases his civilian pack his working on Im planning to transform the civilian truck

http://imageshack.us/a/img594/4749/nowy3t.jpg into Military resupply vehicles aka Ammo, Fuel and Repair ((textures only not model :P)) just to be more "unique"

As suggested by yevgeni89 "Militia" has been done :) In a Italian "San Marco" camouflage, Capraian Militia won't have any special vehicles etc, they are simply addition to the FAC, Militiamen are simple civilian's called to help the Government in bad times, they are supplied by the Government as well, the Ministry of Defense has issued a simple Lee Enfield to the miliamen and still searched for additional weaponry for the militiamen e.g. submachine gun and LMG.

Militia has multiple names, "Republican Militia" "Republican Guards" or simply "Militia" these names are made by members of Militia but official name is "Militia"

And this is what happens when you put bunch of militiamen into a battle... :P

EDIT 2: And so managed to improve it a bit by making the size smaller still won't be unber 1080p HQ HD dunnoh what else :)

Looking much better! Like the trailer, although the vehicles seem way too dark for such bright environment.

Vehicles done on "roleplay'ish" purpose, small nation small military, means un-educated tacticians xd "Lets paint everything greenish!!" + Most of them are bought off overseas so FAC didnt have enough money to repaint them ;)

And thanks.
