BAFX and Rangemaster mod packs - released

Recommended Posts

################################################
British Armed Forces Expanded (BAFX) and Rangemaster mod packs
################################################

Two packs of mods that brings together lots of community developed improvements into a set of enhanced vehicles, aircraft and weapons to play with.
I would like to offer a huge thank you to all the contributors over the past 18 months that have allowed this mod pack to come about.
It's still a little shabby in places - my fault entirely - and we have plans to polish it up some more in due course.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy playing with it.

@BAFX
@Rangemaster

#######################
Dependencies:
#######################

These mods require:
Arma 2 and Operation Arrowhead patched to 1.63
ACR_lite BIS compatibility patch
@CBA_CO

It probably will not work with ACE - sorry!

This shows how I have renamed the burst types to:

proper ammo names for
HE (high explosive)

- 10 new UGL grenades (M203 etc)

- RPO, MRO and other disposable rocket launchers

UNITS
Upgrades all soldiers (including Arma 2, OA and DLC units)
All units (except medics/light units) can:
-carry backpacks

 

Tyrian Faction units:

- Army

- Militia

- Female peshmerga fighters (by von knudenberg with patched edits by Eggbeast)

- ISIL fighters (by S@ndbob with patched edits by Eggbeast)

- Armed civilians (by S@ndbob with patched edits by Eggbeast)

All Engineers, Demolition Specialists and Saboteurs can:
-deactivate mines
-repair vehicles
-carry backpacks

- Incorporates previously released content too: EB_Air, EB_missilebox, EB_weapons/blazes_weapons
- plus lots of stuff developed with unsung and hcpookie: Flamethrowers, WP, lumes, canister, airburst, etc
- and FRL_missilebox (myke)

Subtle changes include reload times (e.g. autoloader in T72 series makes it fast), some armour and speed modifications, zeroing much better, improved optics and better coaxial MGs, and of course the magazine sizes are as close to real as we can get them. clip sizes e.g. on the Rarden, also lume rounds and obscuration effects and some kinetic effects all add together to make an immersive mod we hope.

Try firing WP, HE, CAN, APERS-T, HESH, HEAT, APDS, APFSDS and APFSDS-DU and you'll see the grades of penetration damage improving, and blast radius diminishing...

Improvements
-vehicleclasses (carD, armouredD, carW, armouredW) make them easier to find
-correct / improved ammo loadouts and types (HEI, HE-T, SLAP, API, Frag, WP, lumes, canister, etc)
-weapons (naming, muzzle velocities, ROF, mag sizes, reload sounds and times, fire control systems)
-optics (night and thermal where appropriate, zeroing, ranging data)
-naming (better vehicle, ammo, mag and weapon names - english alphabet format only at the moment)
-weapon and ammo cargoes (in each vehicle appropriate ammo/weaponry for faction/role)
-better vehicle actions like flip/roll
-working bridgelaying tank and tank recovery with special chieftains

- each tank has unique ammo to its date of manufacture (next years m1a3 clearly has latest stuff + lahat missile) and export/domestic variants
- speeds tweaked to be more realistic (abrams had max road speed offroad)
- AA mg on commander turrets have proper ammo for AA role - later variants of M2 have vehicle and people destroyers like APIT and SLAPT and HEIAP ammo
- later variants of GPMG weapons have dim, bright tracer, armor piercing etc.
- flamethrower, frag, canister, smoke and lumes has special effects
- AAA has special effects, as do SAMs
- SACLOS type missiles have a laser homing option so you can target bunkers
- lots of new sounds (from sgt. savage)
- mag sizes as correct as we can get them
- muzzle velocities and armor piercing / splash of frag/HE/flechettes as correct as we can get them

Modified weapon loadouts using EB_missilebox
Planes have:
Wheelbrakes
Afterburners
CBU eventhandlers
additional fx: contrails, falling stream of shellcasings

Choppers have:
manual missile control for certain missiles
right click/optics access gunner seat (see gdtmod_helicopter_weapons readme)
strobes for friendlies
additional thermal options
additional laser-seeking missiles capability
additional fx: falling stream of shellcasings

thanks for the mirrors guys.

there's a lot of stuff/ features in this work that will need explaining, so i'll try to produce a better format guide or something in the next weeks.

this is very much the first stab at a release version, with more sub-projects already near completion

- traps

- better A2 rifle zeroing

- all planes rearm for different roles in a module and not in the mission script

a few ideas/ tiips of things to try:

- use Heinbloeds right click system to manage an apache, viper, hind, hokum or lynx gunnery. toggle strobes in this role and your friendly units flash in thermal camera.

- in all vehicles (land and air) toggle the countermeasures (visible in top left of screen) in commander seat and you get flare/chaff (in aircraft) then smoke and illumination flares.

- check out the amazing array of realistic grenades - be sure to stand in cover when using them

- try the rearmed russian aircraft - they're really cool

- try the clustermines and napalm, also very cool (though not if one hits you)

- take a scorpion or chieftain out for some target practice and experiment with the different ammo available - canister, WP, lumes, APDS, HE, HESH, etc

- take an OT34, TO-55 or an AAV7-FT out and fry some bad guys with the flamethrower

- take an mp5sd6 and m9sd at night and behold the magic laser! and the actually usable bullet damage...

- practice locking your own laser in a hokum to simulate SACLOS weaponry. same for apache, lynx, hind, anything with a TOW or LAHAT or russian ATGM.

- remember all of the vehicles now have ammo in their cargoes - no more need for every player to carry a SMAW and a DMR lol.

- take an m240 MG or a sniper m107 with plenty of HE and AP ammo and go suppress a hostile town... or shoot down a helicopter, or blow up a convoy...

- take the bridgelayers out for a spin near a river... use the ARRV to roll a tank upright

- enjoy!

Okay, i installed the mod, but without 1.63 just to try it.

Well, the flamethrower effects are great, as the new ammo effects too. I cannot see any T-72 variants that i place in the editor, only the T-72M4. Maybe its just because the lack of 1.63 ?

no you don't really need 1.63, it's just that i've only tested it on the version of CBA that works with 1.63.

hmm i wonder - do you have any popup errors about missing CA...blah? are you using steam? if so, then you may not be loading Arma 2 with OA properly.

did you try the demo mission included in the missions folder?

load that in the editor and you can run around a giant car park containing all vehicles and some ammo boxes with all the new kit in it

T72's and T90 are listed in SIDE EMPTY: armoured (woodland) / or/ armoured (desert):

"T72_INS" - this is an M model (export)

"T72_Gue" - this is an M model (export)

"T72_TK_EP1" - this is an M model (export) / desert

"T72_CDF" - this is an M model (export)

"T72_ACR" - this is a later M model (export 1990s) with NSV, thermal, increased armor and speed, and DU shells

"T72_RU" - this is an A model (1979) with period APDS ammo and NSV, svir missiles

"EB_T72B_RU" - this is a 1985 B model with better armour, kord and later DU ammo, laser rangefinder, svir missiles

"T90" - this is a 1990 model with kord, thermal, laser rangefinder, increased armor and speed, DU shells, refleks missiles

The main changes on these tanks are:

proper working smokelaunchers

NSV or dshk on export models, kord on russian - with proper russian 50cal HEI, HET and API cartridges

proper russian tank weapon, ammo types and mag sizes

proper NVG or thermal (simulated IR lamps etc) depending on model

zeroing, rangefinding etc as appropriate

the ZSU/T34/55 models from pookie have a range of turret and animation improvements too (shilka driver hatch works, camo applicator, destruction turret pops, up to 4 independent searchlights, different barrels, added dshk on loader turret, etc) but i'm working on porting them in from unsung.

I'm hoping to reskin more desert versions - any former mod release authors who have already made any skins they would like to donate to this pack, please PM me - would be awesome to have them in here. e.g. STI A10, or russian desert vehicles...

Thanx egg, i will try it.

Im not using steam, i installed, registered, but wont use that.

---------- Post added at 11:46 ---------- Previous post was at 11:19 ----------

Huh, im in trouble.

I loaded the Rangemaster_v2 mission in the editor, there was a longer error popup, saying:

"C:Users\bla\bla\bla\Item12.: Vehicle class BAFX_bulldog_D_RWS no longer exists".

Then, i looked around me. There was NOTHING around me than 3xT-55s and 5xT-34s and a Bulldog, a Scimitar, a Spartan, then a Scorpion behind them. These were in front of the left hangar. :391:

So i think i rather reinstall all my mods and addons...

when you say, "ALL your mods and addons", can you elaborate?

when you say "nothing" - were the buildings present?

which game version do you use?

running A2/OA with mods is very tricky since the 1.63 patch, so its important to know what patch version you have running.

are you running any other mods?

it is VERY likely ACE will kill it

if you are trying this mod perhaps try it with just CBA, BAFX and Rangemaster running (along with A2, OA and BAF, ACR and PMC DLC)

ok coming next:

planes proxies are in progress:

http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?181411-FRL_Air-mod-WIP

all missiles renamed to:

AT: Javelin

AT: AT4

AT: RPG7

AA: Strela

for example, so they show up in the same place in the ammo crate

All explosives, optics, items and grenades similarly grouped

also magazines for launchers come under

Missile: strela etc

and rifle, pistol and GL ammo is listed as 10rnd, 30rnd etc, so all standardised.

some zeroing to add to A2 rifles

Yes i see all those maps.

Done, p85 is off, not working. If i place a russian T-72A or B or a T-90 in the editor with crew, ArmA2 crashes to desktop.

mine works fine - just tested

try playing without mods except cba, bafx and rangemaster

check your mods are correct - if you use six updater it sometimes loads ACE without you clicking it

lol not with that space in bloodscreen it wont pook, but you have it right - we have the mod running on our server with a ton of mods and no probs - 10 players on there quite often kicking ass. T90's and T72s attacking us fine. the demo mission is useful to see if you have probs separate from any server/ mission issues.

just try and get that to work. i wonder, dyou use nopatching option in start line? cos that might break it.

huh I don't know why it is doing that. just retyped "bloodscreen" and it still shows the space. HRM. OK redid it as "code" and it removed the space. strange

Not worx for me guys. I use to start the game with alpinestars ArmA II Launcher, there i can switch the option for "No file patching" so i made it, not working.

So im out of ideas, but theres one last, i will download the mod again, maybe the compressed files were damaged...

well if youre gonna reinstall, do it in steam, and patch 1.63 - its the future - you certainly cant play on our server without it, and our unsung mod server is 1.63 too...

thanks BP for your post - are you enjoying it (the mod)?

Had just time for a quick test in the editor, seems like a lot of quality content. Also looking very much forward to the Unsung release. Great work guys.
