AAF+civies (retexture of Vilas addons)

Recommended Posts

Had some time during the weekend and this is what I came up with ;)

Once the Vilas civilian and military addon packs are successfully ported to A3 I'd like to have this released, with proper permissions, as a seperate Altis Enhancement Pack;

The vehicles are contemporary to 2013, so they still should look fairly OK in the near A3 future. Planned (and partially done) are: fictional Altis Police Force, Firefighters, Taxis, Buses (I will intend to do a lot of variations for the coaches - it'll fit the Greek Vacation Simulator thing for sure :P) etc.

I have also started to adapt some selected assets from the NPL addon, dressed as the AAF faction.

Mainly softskins and ambulances so far (don't intend to do any heavy armor besides a few APCs or armored cars)

1. By doing so it'll not compete in any way with Vilas' Polish Army addons;

2. these Polish trucks look ubercool in this camo and maybe it'll someday turn out to be a RACS-like minipack ;)

As much as I liked the Zamak truck in A2, as it's a great model with beatufilly crafted textures - It kinda stands out and does not work for me as an AAF vehicle... I'd rather see them equiped with something European and exotic at the same time. Polish trucks and prototypes of other vehicles seem fitting for the purpose.

Anyway; as it's (for now) just a private use project and the vehicles are merely A2OA addons played via the AllInArma mod it'll be a while until it reaches the final stages. Nonetheless I will expand the pack (doing parallel work on civilian and military assets) and report with progress.

Once Vilas' packs are here to stay with A3, at least all the textures will be ready and waiting ;)

Hope you'll enjoy.

Yeah, the civ vehicles look really nice, specially the police ones ( they look like if they were real ).

Thanks.

If anyone would like to aid the project the best way to do so would be to contact Vilas and offer help in bringing his base addons to life in A3, with all the cute functions this new great game offers.

He has produced an insane amount of assets and could not possibly take on a task as complex as this alone. Please head to the Addonmakers Friends group, he already asked for some help there back in July. Click;)

In the meantime I'll continue to produce different stuff.

Today I added a Jelcz 662 based refuel truck,

a Jelcz 882 based "Liwiec" artillery radar:

and finally, this little beastie:

a Polish multirole combat platform "Anders" in a 120mm fire support vehicle configuration.

I will be trying to come up with some nice decals/roundels/symbols based on the AAF flag soon to spice these up and make them even more unique.

@Lennard, thx man. I was around all the time, just needed a longer break and a new perspective.

Am I the only one that thinks that maybe BI should buy that addon pack and include it in vanilla A3? I mean it has a bit of everything the game may lack right now ( mainly civilian stuff and a few vehicles for AAF ). I doesn't have jets, but they are supposedly working on that ( I mean BI ).

I'd ticket it right away :) Vilas' packs are already a fine base that could be a huge hit once given proper love and attention.

I also found these. This was started long before A3 and never finished...

it's rather Chernarus inspired, but I'll make the necessary adjustments for A3.

this is so cool! i'm so excited for this. exactly what we need. i could help only with small stuff like config adjustment right now and maybe setting up some materials if needed. i got some stuff i need to finish first. it i'd be glad to help port all those of vilas' treasures in the long run though. i clicked on that forum group link and it didn't let me in. could you invite me?

This looks FANTASTIC! Only thing I would say is that I would be wary of using that logo on the Police units as it's the real-life logo of the Greek Police. If you could come up with an Altian-esque logo for the Emergency Services then the whole thing will be perfect!

Anyway, can't wait to see this released, it will add so much that is missing from the game right now. Great work! :)

Thanks for the comment ZedderZulu.

In fact the real-life logo of the Greek Police is completely different from this one (this one has two olive branches, Greeks have one)....

:j:

Well, at least this must have been the excuse BIS came up with, as it's A3 official (or rather semi-official, as it's included in the .pbos but not available in editor yet)... See here -> Police Cap, third left, top row

Ah, I do know what you mean, but unfortunately I personally have the theory that that's a hang-over from before the setting-switch as it were, much like the police armoured vest has "ΕΛΛΗÎΙΚΗ ΑΣΤΥÎΟΜΙΑ" on it - which explicitly says "Greek Police". :\

I'm not trying to be awkward!

Ah yes, I see your point.

Well, it's nothing we can't easily change, is it? Instead of relying on .pbo leftovers from previous builds we'll indeed rather wait for Bohemia to release the Police as official content and then adapt to whatever they'll come up wityh accordingly. Thanks for vigilance though ;)

Happy to help, though I'd hate to come across as pernickety! :P

I only hope we don't have to wait too long for BIS to release some proper police units...

Wow, that looks really cool, precisely all the additions that AAF needed, do you have any estimated releasing date?

I'm doing some more stuff as we speak, older western equipment (British/German), if I'm happy with the results I add those to the variety.

As for the release; well, the requirement is to have the original Vials' addons ported to A3. Don't know who'll be in charge and how long it takes. If it takes too long - I'll just release a .cfg based retexture pack for the A2/A2OA version that will be possible to use via All-In-Arma.

wow! the normal map of the mud on the front of that one APC kinda thing. very nice!

That's Vilas'work. What I'm editing for the AAF is only the .paa textures.

Thanks, as for the Kentaurus it's nod really up to me. As the title of the topic says; it's merely a retxture project performed on already existing models by Vilas.

But I have something that will fill in the role of Kentaurus:

AIFV / YPR-765

Armored Infantry Fighting Vehicle - AAF bought those some 15 years ago from Turkey

Awesome retextures as always :)

I was thinking that you could add a few variants also in NATO, the Scimitar or the Trojan for example. I'm sure in 20 years they will still be used, the US Army still uses M113...
