Post Apocalyptic Stuff

Recommended Posts

...I'm back :icon14:

So, after a long hiatus I've given modding a try again. Progress will be incredible slow compared to my previous works because I only mod now when I feel like it, not because I feel like I "have to". I'll also stay with just one project. On the bright side, this will prevent me from burning out and not make me treat this like work (like I did in the past :plain: ) .

So, my project will be a retake on the Post Apocalyptic Units using A2 sample stuff. My modelling skills are rather limited so I'm very glad we have the A2 sample stuff now. The units will follow my previous A2 units style, but I won't recycle the ArmA1 stuff (that I based my models on). For the A3 units I'll use the A2 samples + limited own stuff and "start fresh".

So, here are some screens of the first two units I'm working on:

They're from the "Remnants" faction. I imagine those guys as people who have quite a good supply of eastern and western military gear, so they'd have the most high-tech stuff from previous times. I plan to add another faction which is equipped more "hobo / selfmade style" with custom helmets, bows, armor plating etc. But one step at a time.

That's it for now, I'll try to skim through my inbox in the next few days. :bounce3:

Please please please tell me you are going to do some more makeshift guns?? :)

If you ever played fallout, what about something like a pipe rifle.

Or a welrod like pipe pistol for stealth missions :)

Would love to see not only some great units but some great unique weapons to go with them.

That m16 thing looks nice.

Keep it up.

2017 is probably doing a bunch of crazy MANW stuff, not a good idea anyway.

This is a mod with a very different scope and very different everything.

They are doing a whole big thing with a gamemode and survival crap etc, its a whole different mix bag.

Ok I never thought of using this "lame excuse" but wow... damn.

Well all my mod files are gone. Talk about backups and stuff. Arguably it wasn't much to begin with as I started "fresh" (2 soldiers with different A2 gear and new textures, 3 new weapons), yet these days it's enough to demotivate me as much.

Well, I'm an idiot for not backing up my files - even the upcoming HDD failure was visible - my 3rd HDD sometimes didn't boot up. As the SMART values were OK, I falsely assumed faulty cabling. Well, didn't look into it further and some odd week later it won't start anymore, even with an USB adapter. It's my first ever HDD to fail me in 10+ years of computing.

This is a damn shame......Haleks Ravage mod would have been all the better for seeing these bad boys traversing over the landscape.

Hope you get back on it Icewindo, it really is a shame and a bit scary, my post apocalypse mod for Arma was lost the exact same way
