The Army Combat Uniform Mod

Recommended Posts

Logo.png

I am very pleased to announce I project I have been working on for many weeks now, porting many Arma 2 models and modifying them to create the Army Combat Uniform mod. This mod includes all aspects of the Army Combat Uniform, including the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV), all headgear and uniforms.

I made this mod as a response to all of the awesome re-skins of the Arma 3 units I have been seeing recently. There is nothing wrong with those, they usually are of very high quality. I wanted some uniforms that could been worn "In Garrison" i.e. not super operator clothes with integrated knee pads, and such that are modeled off of the real Army Combat Uniform. Currently, it is only availible in the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP), But I plan to make a Multicam version as well.

1. Introduction

The modification includes the following:

  • Army Combat Uniform, Full Color Flags and Subdued IR
  • Army Combat Uniform, Tactical Combat Shirt
  • Army Aircrew Combat Uniform
  • Garrison Headgear: Berets, Patrol Caps
  • Cavalry Stetson
  • Tactical Vests: IOTV, Aircrew Survival Vest
  • Combat Headgear: MICH 2000, Bush Cap, HGU56P, CVCH

Please leave some feedback, this is the first release. The weighting on the vests seems quite good, and I believe there are no bugs, but I am sure many of you will find some.. Thank you and enjoy.

Ahh yes. I most likely to ease you to get the uniforms will add some kind of crate with all of the content in it in the next release. However. The men wearing the uniforms can be found simply in BLUFOR \ Men, and the PDF Readme includes all the class names to spawn the kit. I shall definitely include a crate I think though to make that easier.

A british version?

I honestly have never thought about that, I'd have to do a great deal of research on the British Uniform standards and such, but I see no reason why not in the future.

- And thank you Sonsalt, I shall certainly give that a try.

@Not_Majority

Hello: Some of the IOTV Models included do have pouches and other accessories. Adding additional systems such as the FLC vest are certainly a possibility.

Update

I've included an ammo crate in this release that has all of the content in it to aid in accessing the content. It can be found in Empty - DAR Army Combat Uniform

Here is the updated Mega Link:

The stuff is showing up in the crate but it's using default Arma 3 UI pictures for the vests and hats and when I choose a uniform it doesn't get added to my character so he's just wearing his underpants. No errors popping up though. I'm using the latest version you posted, going to try the older version.

Indeed:

Try spawning the objects onto a player with the uniform class names. I shall attempt to remedy that.

Just tried that and still not working unfortunately. The unit's do work though although they don't have a 'uniform' as such.

I have to report the same error: When adding the uniforms whichever way, you only get undies instead of the uniform. The error log also shows a lot of things happening, mostly the game complaining about A2 addons not being found.

For the uniforms not showing, possibly there is a conflict of some sort? I am not using any large mods aside from addons (mostly weapons and some vehicles), as well as the A3 Maps mod. I will put a list together tomorrow and see if I can figure out if using no mods makes the problem go away, right now I am on my way to sleep.

I do not use any mods except this one and I can re-produce the error. I shall check the Log and see what comes up.. But I think it has something to do with the sides wearing the uniform. This problem occurred in the IND units in Arma 3 as well in the Beta, and I am unsure how they fixed it.

These are the errors:

ERROR: Switch uniform! Uniform is not supported by soldier

Uniform DAR_ACUG is not allowed for soldier class DAR_ACUG_F

Looks like either the wrong type or the wrong side. I shall attempt to remedy this ASAP.. so that you may enjoy these lovely uniforms..

I see one problem in the config that explains it. It's a pretty easy one to make.

In cfgVehicles the unit DAR_ACUG_F is linked through uniformClass to the uniform DAR_ACUG.

In cfgVehicles the uniform DAR_ACUG is linked through uniformClass to the unit of DAR_ACUG when it should be DAR_ACUG_F.

----------

Definitely looking forward to using them once you get it fixed.
