Swedish Forces Pack: 0.7.4 (Updated 27th of May)

Recommended Posts

What can I say about this?

Well, fact is.. we don't have proper tools, and I was never good with this stuff to begin with.

Keep your expectations really low..

Not sure when and at what stage we will release, it doesn't have much and we don't want to be known as the mod with just half done stuff, but then again.. I guess more than us are a bit tired of Stratis.

On Sunday we will play our coop event on this island, after that I expect some feedback.

Love the mod but where is the classnames list? Realy frustrating not being able to use the weapons to your own wishes in the editor.

(no Classnames are pressent in any txt files.)

hanks in advance :)

EDIT: Also the uniforms, helmets etc. Wold be cool to gett a classname list on.

Today is the Swedish national day, and what better way to celebrate it than with an awesome release..

A new ArmA3 world to enjoy, while still in development I think many will be happy to play something that isn't Stratis.

Check the first post for videos, detailed description, changelog and download links.. and yes, this time it comes with classnames ;)

Nice update! I really liked the little part of Wamako, i saw on our included mission, although there is a small issue (which should be quite easy to solve).

Unfortunately it seems wamako leaks any kind of midrange or distant texture, resulting in a boring ground texture, once the overgrowth stops (around 100-200m).

Maybe you could get into contact with "bad benson" and ask him, if you might use one of his midrange textures for your map? I think midtex sharp 1 or 2 might be the best (i use sharp2 for stratis, but sharp1 might fit better for the african plains). Or maybe, he could make his addon compatible with wamako.

This is his thread:

http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?150645-midrange-terrain-texture-replacement

I might ask him over steam, how much work it would take, to make midtex compatible with wamako.

Good work on the map, and the weapons are good too, but i guess i'll have to be that guy....I think the Uniforms are a bit too glossy and need some work. Too be frank, the textures are a wee bit stale. But hey, really admire the effort though. I'm sure it will improve. At least it's original and not another reskin. Kudos for the creativity on the future units also.

Mondkalb made a lot of modding tutorials regarding map design, have you read them? Great job, btw!

Few wishes, if I may?

- Custom sounds for the AK5?

- Picatinny rail for the AK5?

- Dirt on the Uniforms

- Desert Uniform

Regarding the map:

- I get very few frames on it (13-14, while I get around 22-28 on Stratis)

- If you need an inspiration, look at the cities of Mali, VICE made a good documentary.

Great job, already using it! :)

Like these ones?

sfp_wamako.pbo

sfp_wamako_objects.pbo

sfp_wamako_roads.pbo

sfp_wamako_units.pbo

By the way. Several signatures don't work with the new version.

We used the old version of sfp on our servers with enabled sig check, no problems there..

3inar: 1 mag each? Not by default, They should carry 4 mags, not sure about the AT guy if the bandoiler accepts 4mags + 1 AT rocket, but i´ve checked that the MG and rifleman have 4 mags which they happily blasts away at blufor soldiers.

Lightninguk: Right now, atleast the sfp_wamako_units.pbo have dependencies for other pbos in SFP. The island might work standalone with these files:

sfp_wamako.pbo

sfp_wamako_objects.pbo

sfp_wamako_roads.pbo

but as for now the units need their sfp weapons. This could possibly change in the future depending on what our modelmakers stick their head into next.

Brain: Picatinny rail for the AK5? Not sure what you mean, The ak5c have fully working rail for optics and support for silencer and flashlight/laser

I'd prefer the AK5 over the AK5C :) But I guess since there is (i think) no rail system for the AK5 in RL, you wont do one right?

thanks we tested the map

When starting ArmA3 using only the four files you've listed from the Swedish Forces addon, a notification was displayed stating "Warning Message: Addon 'sfp_wamako' requires addon 'Swedish_Forces_Pack'". However, I was able to load and play the game with no additional errors. The map loads and plays just fine in the editor. No errors were received once the game was loaded, nor did I notice any missing buildings, textures or vegetation. So in short, aside from the notification window when launching ArmA3, there seem to be no issues with using only the map pbo's from the Swedish Forces addon.

hope this helps

Turns out it has fixed itself now.

I belive the problem might have ben that I dident restart my game after I added the new uppdate as It already told me it was instaled and ready.

You won't forget about this?

Apparently your signatures don't work on sig check enabled servers.

I can confirm this.

Are these guys BLUFOR or Independent?

If they are not BLUFOR, I won't bother downloading them.
