You can see them if you do the following:

Go to the editor

set the date to the 4th july 2012 at 1 am

wander around in the woods in the north western parts of altis

this only works without NVGs

I think GOM is pulling your leg. The Arma 3 devs released a mock video in 2012 with these aliens in it.

They definitely don't exist in game as there are no cfgVehicles entries and nothing in the ambient parts of CfgWorlds. The texture file is probably a leftover.

That's interesting. I actually tried GOM's method but with squads of rifleman in case their zombie-like. Turns out, nothing appeared. Maybe the devs are thinking of putting the aliens in some kind of upcoming DLC? :D

But the alien texture do remind me of the aliens in the movie "Independence Day"

More likely they existed for the purposes of that build but then the devs didn't remove the textures/RVMAT.

No, I agree - what I was saying is that's a total falsehood that they are in the game now.

You're right, sorry for any troubles, couldn't resist ;)

The texture is a leftover from an aprils fools video from what I know.

Here's the video:

Huh? That's interesting. :confused:

If it was an april's fool, couldn't they just leave the actual mod in as like an Easter egg. (But I still don't know why they removed a few good content that was in their vids)

My guess is that they didn't intend to leave "the actual mod in as like an Easter egg" but were simply incomplete about removing all of its related contents.

Since someone found the texture, can anyone for the model? Perhaps it can be ported into an independent faction for some Sci-Fi near future war mod?! :D

To date no one has found a corresponding model, at least not named "reticulan", nor a config entry for one... so you'd have to do up one from scratch and apply said textures yourself.

I know this is an older thread, but just wondering, couldn't you apply those textures to a model already ingame?

Theoretically yes, but I've no idea what they'd look like nor what the size of the intended model was.

This is my new favorite thread.

You guys are retarded... the aliens don't spawn in Altis; they spawn randomly in the wooded coast above Kamino Firing range on the 4th of July in 2011, somewhere between 8:45pm and 11:45pm.
