By Hawaiian & Siege-A

 

 

Aloha, this addon is a rendition of the U.S. Army's 75th Ranger Regiment, with the close help of user Siege-A.

 

I am aiming to get an "overall" look than to have a "quality" look implemented into this addon, If you need to know why, it's because I play on an iMac and when I purchased it I didn't have plans to play video games on it.

 

Including in the addon are Infantry and Inf. groups (*no vehicles) implemented as a faction to use in Arma III.

 

Of course it won't be 100% accurate due to my limited areas in modding, but I got them as close as I could with the help of many individuals who has contributed their time and work, which will always be appreciated.

Thanks to these gentleman for helping test and squash all these kinks in the addon, anywhere from config errors and minor weighting issues.

 

Thanks to all who wanted to volunteer to test the addon and I apologize I had to turn you all down.

roadrunner aka. Argyle aka. Yoda 

 

first off this guy became my mentor and has helped me get this addon done when I was losing interest in the project (for the 2nd time). He’s helped me attain A2 DLC textures, gave me countless workflow teachings,introduced me to several helpful programs, he’s made Salomon/Asolo shoe textures that I am using in the addon (they are for all of us), guided me on making the Oakley SI tactical glove texture, helping in choosing a vest and implementing a few techniques and insight on Johannes’s Ciras vest. You are probably one of many interesting individuals I’ve met, and can’t thank you enough for your valued time.

He has ported and implemented his own tweakings of the Scar-L,M4A1 Carbine (w/M203 variant), MK12 SPR,M110 SASS, and FN M249 SAW,he has also helped me with fixing of errors, helping in attaining additional textures, and implementing some new arrays in the config.

Does anyone know where I can get some M4 rifles? I've emailed specific "weapon" addon makers and that was almost 5 weeks ago, I'd really like to get this addon out soon, any help would be appreciated.....

If I'm not mistaken, a lot of the 75th is rocking M4 block 2's so you may wanna take a look at the MK18 pack that includes them.

Thanks for that, It would be dope if we can get some M4's, Scars, and those M4 Blocks I & II's tho, attachments I'm not too worried about right now but if I can kill two birds with one stone ,than that's more I can get done......

That would be so helpful to me right now, I'll try and get you a list as soon as I can. Yea that texturing is top notch, very skilled (always using that SCAR rifle in my loadouts). Just out of curiosity this weaponset you're helping me with includes the M4's and block's, or just the SCARs?

mahalo, that means a lot to me. I'm such a perfectionist I think I re-textured the MCam like 6 times to get it right, but yea that's definitely final. I'm a fan of the Rangers too, best of luck to you on joining up.

LOL you'd probably be like "ugghh" at my first 5 tries. But yea this version I like best, spent many times lookin at reference pictures and the more I did the more I kept changing it and changing it til I got it somewhat right. I would love to get my hands on some desert Multi Cam tho, tried making my own but that just came out tragic. But yea Eric's a top notch dude.

Aloha Dave, thank you for your attention and yes I would love to borrow those model parts please. I always come across your 75th Rangers from A2 while looking for references, very classy work...though I've never got to use them since I've hardly played any Arma 2 in the time your addon came out.

Hey Hawaii_Based , your take on 75th Rangers is sweet, but I gotta ask which M4 is that on this latest screenshot? Is it a beta version of the latest RH M4s or Sabre´s M4s for RHS that you had acess to?

[EDIT] Are those ERicJ´s???? Their textures are quite sharp, doesn´t look like those he´s released on USAF mod or his own weapon packs... bizarre! =)

cheers!

I would suggest you move the flag texture to its proper location above the patch panel on the uniform. Take a look at the default NATO Recon uniform to see what I am referring to. This will properly allow custom textures such as squad.xml and custom patches to go on the patch panel without having the flag texture in the way. Other than that suggestion, everything looks great. I especially love your glove textures.

Crpl Lib.........The Rifle is BI's M4A1 (from what I gathered from Eric) but with EricJ's tweakings. It will be implemented into the Rangers loadouts along with SCAR-L and hopefully some CQB Block rifles which I'm trying to get permission to use. Hopefully when you try them out as I have, you'll like the results because to my opinion these are the best rifles I've shot so far in the game.....but that's for you guys to decide (of course lol).

Kilo1-1 ...yes you're right, I'll "try" and fix that but the thing is if you assume to re-texture only the right arm, it will show up on the left arm as well. I've also tested my uniform with patches and the flag does get in the way of a "cut" logo but not a squared logo , the squared logo will cover up the left arm flag (to which I re-sized the flag to be covered by a patch) but yea I'll see if it can be done, no problem.

Yeah as Hawaii_Based said they're just the A2 M4A3s renamed M4A1s. I did some tweaks to the overall darkness of the weapons as I spend more time tweaking them. I may adjust the barrel though as I was running through my course and finally (oddly) caught that, so I'll probably send him some more tweaked textures and models.

3P0X1...that's not entirely true, I will have a separate pbo for that. It will be in the folder of my Rangers but you can just use the weapons by putting it in a separate folder to use standalone and throw my Rangers in the trash lol I guess
