China - PLA Infantry (Alpha)

Recommended Posts

I hope this great mod gets updated soon! I don't think the creator has been on in over a month (at least, judging by the date of his last post), so, if it's been abandoned, is it up for grabs in terms of updating it for Beta? I really could use the PLA for my Pacific missions! :)

Hey guys,

This is Majoris, the creator of the addon. For some stupid reason, my account here has been blocked and I'm unable to retrieve my password, since the email account registered to it expired (old university account). Can any moderators help me retrieve my REAL account? I can provide any credentials required.

Regarding the addon itself, I've been continuing work on it for the past few months. Unfortunately, every update seems to break something in the addon and the transition from Alpha to Beta has been a headache, to say the least. Just doesn't make sense to keep releasing updates every time Arma3 is patched.

I will release a barebones update in the near future with just the infantry & weapons, although completely reskinned vehicles are coming for the full version.

Sorry for the confusion! Again, any help from a moderator to retrieve my account would be appreciated.

He can't retrieve the password reset email:

Majoris, have you contacted customer support?

I'm in the process of getting my old account back - in the meantime, a screenshot of the reworked PLA units. I've been using the developer beta to help "predict" future errors from coming up :)

Altis is seriously awesome!!!

- Based on the Independent model (more realistic)

- Stratis/Altis specific camouflage

- Reworked weapons to work in the Beta

- Fixed tons of minor bugs to get the addons working again

The new addons will feature the same units hopefully (Marine, Arid, Woodland, etc.) but with reworked patterns to better fit the Arma3 setting.

Ehh, I actually preferred the original outfitting choices, they seemed more "2035" -- but for "second line" units or representing "pre-2035" units I can get, and in any case the choice of Stratis/Altis-specific camouflages is a cool idea with your screenshot highlighting what this seems to mean, hurrah!

I concur, I really like the future uniforms, however I also think this new uniform is perfect for regular PLA troops. Maybe the original future stuff can be used for specfor?

Exactly what I'll do :) The addon is nearing completion and should be released by Friday at the latest. Updates:

  • Fixed Mandarin voices; now functioning in all Arma3 versions (beta, dev branch)
  • Divided infantry by unit, rather than uniform (e.g. 15th Airborne Corps)

    - Unit-specific uniforms, patches, and equipment


  • Added Chinese group editor icons (e.g. the red icon in the editor for CSAT) and reconfigured names
  • About a million small adjustments and bug fixes

Is the latest build still working for Alpha Dev .77

I put down one unit from each class on the Editor and got config errors when going into PREVIEW.

Was not able to get even past clicking the button.

I am now coming up with mission ideas and need to know if we are a go or not.

Thx!

Are you running Dev Branch? It's not tested to work with any previous versions of Arma3.
