Release frontpaged on the Armaholic homepage.

They look like they look good, downloading now. But for future reference, when you take pictures, turn them or the sun (change time of day) so that you don't get shadows covering them. You only have a few sections where we can see the camo clearly. Show them off, they look good.

Check the screenshot gallery if you want to see some of the units without any shadows, click the actions button when you hover over the image and click view full screen if you want to see larger images.

Anyone else good with the camera feel free to post some here.

They do look really good... think I found a bug though, I was trying to stand next to the rifleman class and it seemed to have had invisible walls... anyone else?

Took some screenshots, if you want to use them you can. And I also must ask, will you possibly do this camo on the rifle as well?

Good job so far though!

Can you go into further detail about this? I haven't tested them in-game that much except for viewing. I will take a look tomorrow and hotfix if it is a bug.

As for the weapons I was going to skin them and probably will. Might wait for the full release to see what else comes then I'll do it all at once. Along with the backpacks and hopefully camo helmets.

Nice screenshots. Nice to see what other people can do :)

I've done my own test with my units and with standard. I don't think its an issue with my addon. It seems like its the game itself. It is detecting that you are carrying a weapon and pointing it outwards towards someone else. So it is keeping the space there to avoid weapons going through the model. That's why you can clip in from behind or sides but not the front. Interesting. Maybe a dev could comment on this :P

Pointing weapon at a unit without a weapon.

Now Neither of us have weapons.

Both units have weapons. See the distance.

Now only one unit has a weapon. See distance again.

Great job,man. Desert camo does more accord with the color of the Altis.

And I hope you could also retexture small arms, cars, armors, helo....everything of AAF.

Once the final game gets released I will work on a full retexture. Waiting to see what else we get after release.

Now it makes more sense for an arid enviroment like Stratis.

I think these suit both environments quite nice, but I would like to see some desert maps with these in when they get released.

Updated this post

Update on what I've been doing for version 1.1.

All units are now fully kitted out in AAF Desert. That includes helmets, hats, vests, backpacks, uniforms and weapons.

9pSPdpZl.jpg

AAAKlcMl.jpg

HDxyHrml.jpg

Vehicles are also in the works as you can see from the above image but I will wait for release to skin the rest of them.

I've also renamed a lot of the classes and images as I got a bit confused with some of the class names I gave them. I didn't expect to make this addon as big as it is, the addon size has grown from 25MB to 71MB.

There will be now 4 addon files in total.

aaf_d // Main mod folder

aaf_d_veh // Vehicle mod folder

aaf_d_wep // Weapon mod folder

Lastly aaf_d_rep which is an optional replacement pack. It will replace the standard AAF with the desert ones. So you will always see desert skins on the AAF.

Not long left till release then hopefully I will be ready to release. I'll Keep posting updates for people interested.

I've started using your units and I noticed you are missing the "rifleman at" you have the missle specialist but not the light at guy.

I see you started with vehicles. I think bi made a bad decision to make everything the same for every faction. But since all the turrets and guns on all the vehicles are the same, why stop with only AAF vehicles? Retexture the blufor and/or opfor vehicles too. In fact the real striders look like blufor colors and are used by the same who use hunters.

These textures look better for the islands than the green.

Added the LAT guy in 1.1. I missed it out in 1.0.

As for the BluFor vehicles I'm not sure what you mean? You want BluFor and OpFor vehicles texturing like the Desert Indep camo?

Will be releasing the update after release to see if there is anything else I can add.

Don't put Blufor and Opfor vehicles in the AAF Desert camo... if anything, make a sepiatone, desert multicam texture for blufor. Go look up Desert Scorpion camo or Desert Multicam. That would be different.

I really have no intentions of going into BluFor and OpFor retextures, at least not for now.

This addon is going to be reaching 100MB by the time I'm finished with all the retextures and there is tons of coding, so I think I've done enough for now :)
