I have permission from all of these people to use their mods.

Information:

With the lack of the US Army faction in Arma 3, I have decided to begin work on a US faction.

This faction will be a combination of 4 mods:

US_Pack by Craig

RH_M4 by Robert Hammer

Task Force Radio by Task Force Team

CSE by the CSE Team

ALT Version without CSE:

I will not be making anything in this pack seeing as I have a lack of modeling knowledge, so all credit for the assests used in this addon will go to the people above.

Description:

The addon will add the US Military as a faction in the game (See screenshots below).

I don't want to upload more pictures, because there are over 96 units, which would be alot of picutres.

Also sorry for the bad quality, I am on my laptop for the next month.

JayJay - For original Loadouts

JoshNZ - For help with the config

floop - For help with the loadouts

Teeha - For the original Config.cpp file, which I based my addon on

Note:

This is my first mod, so please, all feedback is welcome. Thank you for your support.

This addon was never meant to be 100% accurate because I had to work within my limits of the mods I was using. Therefore the loadouts are not going to be perfect, and nor is the camo or vests going to be the ones used in real life.

Congrats on the Release, MarcusCunningham, but I´d like to point two things:

a-) It is a good measure to post a link to the threads here or armaholic download page from those addons above, just to help out those interested on your mod, but not yet familiarized with those said mods ;)

b-) There´s no optional noTFAR addon in this first release, are you including it later?

and I hope someone take your configs as base for a replacement pack turning futuristic NATO in your US Army units =)

cheers!

Just did that, thanks.

I will look at including it later, along with other options such as RH Pistols, and BTC weapons, but for now I'm going to keep it like this.

Hope you enjoy it, all feedback is welcome.

I will also update with a Armaholic link, once it is approved there. I am also in the process of messaging Play with Six so I can get it uploaded on there.

Stay tuned for those links.

This compatible with ALiVE?

If it isn't already, would you make it so and add placeholders for groups that aren't already made (ie, helicopters, tanks, ect)?

edit*

Just tried them out and they are easily my favorite units now. One thing I dislike about a lot of unit modifications (my personal opinion, no insult to the makers) is the lack of "bulk" to the units. They typically don't have near the amount of equipment that most infantry carry on them. These guys are perfect though. My unit will def be using these if you make it compatible with ALiVE. Like I said, placeholders for vehicles and aircraft would be nice, so the units can spawn a whole army. I wouldn't add the recon to ALiVE though, as it doesn't really handle special forces. Again, thanks man!

I'm not sure if you know or not, but the woodland and desert camo is actually marine's MARPAT and desert MARPAT, which means, they're not ARMY... but then again, it's just a minor thing.

Eh, I'd prefer if the units were AV_IndUS instead.

Eh, I'd prefer if you would leave a positive comment rather than one like that, he didn't make this mod for you. Anyway nice mod.

Yeah I know, also the Desert camo is Navy Arid II, which is a navy camo, but the desert digital camo used by the Marines in the pack just didn't give the right look for me so I went with the Navy Arid which I think looks alot more like the standard desert camo at the moment.

Back to the other camos, I couldn't do anything about the Marine camos because that's just the way they are named in the US pack so unfortunately I cant change that but its not that big of a deal.

I'm not sure how to make them compatible with Alive, but I will have a chat with the Alive guys and see if we can work something out.

I'm glad that you like the units, and yeah I will have a look at making it Alive compatible, I think that would open it to a larger audience as well.

Not sure if you are apart of the PWS team, but if you are could you please change the required mods, because the RH_M4 pack is not linked correctly. I think you may have linked the RH_m4 pack from Arma 2 because my mod is not working. Therefore could you please change the required mods and remove the rh_m4 pack in there now, and replace with the RH_M4_A3 pack by Robert Hammer. Thank you.

It's a suggestion, no need to be rude. I make mods myself, I was just saying the AV units looks, a LOT better.

I did not model any of these units, all of the uniforms and player clothes are from the US Pack by Craig, and the weapons are from the RH_M4/M16 pack, I just simply made them into playable units.

Oh do you? Got anything to show for that?

The fact that this bloke is trying to add some sort of a realistic US Army represention is much appreciated and I concur to the use of dependency mods - there are already heaps of good mods out there and it's just a matter of imagination to combine them into something like this.

@Marc: Are you looking at porting over some vehicles from A2 and/or crew already-released community ones?

I'm not sure what you meant by that.

It's best to set it up like the default nato groups. Essentially just replace Nato infantry with yours. Might have to change unit numbers in squads but for the most part it should be the same.

The only reason I ask to add placeholder vehicles (ie, just nato stuff) is because it makes alive able to use a whole army rather then just your infantry units

Yeah I have added some groups for testing and they are working so now I am going to find out how to spawn units in vehicles then I can save those in there aswell so Alive will be able to use those as well like you said.

So once I get Play withSix squared away and everything is working perfect in game, then I should have an update with all of these features in it. If all goes well I would expect it sometime next week.

I mean, I don't make mods for Arma 3 by any chance, though, I did make a soundmod for Insurgency, and some re-textures for it. I was just simply suggesting the AV units instead. Calm down. These units look great too, but it was just a suggestion.

Oh, I gotcha. Not quite sure how to do that. In the editor it's just unit setincargo "vehicle"
