The Eridanus Insurrection - An Arma 3 Total Modication

Recommended Posts

Just discovered this, amazing mod.

Also, i have a question about the planned maps.

Specifically the New Mombasa one. I was wondering, how is the map going to be structured? Is it all going to be one giant city or have countryside as well?

Just the city

Its technically usable as-is. But, we're never going to make an Altis Life if that's what you're asking.

sidenote, proud to say that we have fixed all issues with shadow lods now (that we know of). so even those guys playing with shadow settings on low will have no stretchy shadows anymore :)

Looking really good. So what variants of the Falcon can we expect to see? MG, GL, and unarmed variants?

That would be a safe bet, yes.

This is just a random (most likely benadryl induced) thought by me, so don't take this as a serious suggestion, but if the UNSC feels like it needs a heavy gunship, what about reporposing the Falcon to be something like an attack variant of the Huey analog, or kitbashing it into an ah-1 analog, something that feels like a Falcon dedicated for missile platforming.

Anyway now that that's out of my system and to actually contribute something, I did find an image of the inside of the falcon's cockpit if you're interested.

Will we be getting and casual outfits for the UNSC? I remember seeing in one video an ODST with just a black Tee on but I can't seem to find it, maybe I messed up and just dreamed I saw it or something ahah

Also I've noticed a bug with the ODST helmets, while looking closely at them in the Virtual Arsenal I discovered that at the very corner of the visor on both sides there is a small section where you can see through to the characters face.

Edit

Also discovered another bug, when depolarizing the ODST recon helmet, the small torch attachment on the side disapears.

The visor bug has been fixed and the depolarized Recon helmet is now fixed as well.

If we can find a better representation of the HMG-38. The picture from the comic books looks ugly as shit. .

Regarding the comments about the HMG-38 in:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-eridanus-insurrection/images/m73-lmg-wip

I did a bit of research and I found that more than a heavy machinegun it is a light machinegun, here there is a thread explaining why:

http://www.spartanbloks.com/forums/showthread.php/wip-hmg-38-saw-squad-automatic-weapon-custom-5291/index.html?

Then about the design, in the comic it is extremely ugly, but I have noticed its similar to the German MP-40 as part of the magazine is used as a handhold.

So I ended doing this:

http://media.moddb.com/images/members/1/542/541153/HMG-38-concept.jpg

I tried to make it as similar as the one seen in the comic while making it much less ugly and have that ''halo'' feeling. I hope it is a better representation for it. :)

looks pretty neat, trying to wrap my head around it though. is that the box ammo or mag in the front? also maybe flip the selector switch. if you put the safe position on the opposite side, you could rotate from safe to fire using your thumb, otherwise you would be using your non firing hand to flick that switch. i know you went off the one and only picture there is of this weapon, but the magazine way up there would indicate the bolt being way up there too thus causing for insane amounts of recoil. not saying this is a bad concept, i like it a lot as it looks really clean. maybe consider adding that collapsible stock like the G36C has, idk.

anyways, cool hope we take it somewhere

Thank you, and yes I tried to make it as similar as possible to:

This was a nice reference too:

http://static1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130709153432/halofanon/images/1/17/HMG_38.jpg

In the comic it appears to be mag ammo not box ammo, and it looks like part of the magazine is being used as handhold, like the MP40.

That's is something that bothered me but I wanted to make it as close as possible to the original. In case you want it to be different, you can simply place the magazine more to the right and place a handguard there. The original does not seem to have a collapsible stock , but it could be done.

About the selector switch, yes I've noticed its not in a very good place, I agree that it should be closer to the hand so you can easily switch it quickly with a finger. The switch of the g36c , for example, would work really well. The switch would have to be placed more to the right, but there is no space for it, it would require some tweaks.

glad you liked it, hope you guys take it somewhere too :)

EDITED:

Made some changes. The switch is now in the right and inverted.
