I've gotten really tired of seeing so many low-quality versions of the Multicamâ„¢, so

I though I'd try my hand at making something everybody could make use of in the future.

It's fully tileable in all directions. It looks quite nice even if it get's downscaled a lot.

It's tweaked to look like the original multicam color as it is. I have real life references.

If it gets blurry, my tip is just to run it through a faint sharpening filter.

Posted this in the "DISCUSSION" section

since it's not a finished addon.

I hope this was useful and I am looking forward to seeing your response.

Would get interesting if you'd post a pic here of what you've done with it.

Remember not to scale it too big when using it.

Enjoy! :)

Great job, very useful for people know how to texture, sadly I aint fan of those camo's and Im not gonna do anything with it :P

Very useful once again, thanks for this!

But to be honest even with the commonly used camo, you can make it into HD if you know how to which is easy.

Nice! Much appreciated. This will come in handy later.

Im sure everyone is entitled to their own opinions are they not? I for one like MTP more than MC. These MC patterns will come in useful when i add some additional camo variants to my Nogovan Highland Rangers :)

Oh, yeah, an MTP one would be nice as well... But, still, it's the same base color and that's what I like :). A little offtopic, but am I the only one who has had a hard time finding a good MTP picture of JUST the camo?

I beg to differ. It never gets near as good as it should be unless you paint it all over yourself. Color and sharpness is really hard to get right on all shades with a blurry, noisy, washed out reference. And making camouflage like this from scratch isn't as simple as you'd think.

It's not hijacking if you're helping!

If you can capture the whole pattern in one photo (less wrinkles and the whole repeating pattern), it could get very usable.

Altough I'd say that's the back of some kind of shirt? Getting the whole pattern might be impossible.

Is this a phototexture or a hand painted swatch?

It looks really neat, but multibutt isn´t my favourite :I I´m currently searching for a replacement for textures I am working on. You don´t happen to have a similarily excellent US4CES sample to go along with your multicam?

Thumbs up for putting this out here for modders to use too, wonderful initiative!

With this you can pretty much make a HD looking camo in ArmA

Indeed its nice that people share their resources for others to use.

It's originally a photo found on google.

I made it tileable, fixed wrinkles, fixed color levels, shaded together missing parts, and now it's really easy to use for everyone! :)

I do have a small collection, but I've never heard of that one before. We'll see if I can get some more camo templates out in the future :)

It´s a new Camo, made by ADS. It´s been designed for the recent US Army camo competition. There´s only a handful of -very- small swatches available, so it´s difficult to make a decent full size swatch without the pattern repeating itself in a jarringly obvious fashion. I know, I tried and kinda failed :(

Thay actually gave out more than enough on their website to re-create something VERY similar.

All of their versions use the same pattern, but different shades.

I can't promise, but I might have something useful in a bit.

I'll have to make it tileable first. Then the 4 different versions: Arid, Woodland, OCIE, Traditional.

I like it but seems kinda fake looking lol I dunno how to explain.

Should look more real and less fake than the others atleast? Cause this is probably the closest thing to the real deal that I myself have seen.

Oh. Nice seeing how it came out! Looks like you actually made real seams.

Not to be nit-picky, but one of the first things that came to my mind when I saw it was the scale.

Adjusting the scale on the torso to about 5%-ish larger and the arms and legs to about 5%-ish smaller, so the two sizes meets somewhere in the middle and matches better would make it spot on!

Thanks, I just threw this together to show the aforementioned posterior that the camo does look rather nice (and real). Threw it together pretty quick, and didn't normal map anything. But thanks for the scale advice, in the chance that I may use this in an upcoming addon that will come in handy.

We'll see. Not a bad idea.

Incase of that I'll ask a moderator to rename the thread. This'll do for now, though :)

Superb! I´ve got to try these out... I´m gonna throw these on the BI US Army units with my retex thingie and show pics once I´ve got them suited up. Thanks for making these available. :>

Cheers

Tried them, and it seems ADS deliberately altered the colours of the flat pictures on their websites: they look nothing like on the recent photographs. I´m currently looking through their pictures and am trying to determine the actual values of the colours. OCIE actually looks kind of like a dry-er AOR-1 as far as the colours go according to some pictures I found from SHOT show.

The shadows in the field pictures are very intense and finding the averages for the colours will entail a bit of work. I hope you´re okay with me altering the colourways to more realistic values? I´ll make the finished swatches available again too.
