Pomigit has granted me permission to take over development of the PG Services PMC mod from this point forward. I've made some minor changes, and have other additions and changes planned for the future. Before handing this mod over, Pomigit added new Tactical Goggles (a custom model, with three textures) and also made the necessary changes for Zeus compatibility.

So excited to see that the mod is coming back to life, and I'm super thankful that Pomi had the grace to turn it over.

On testing, the vests seem to provide no protection from rounds, so you may want to investigate it. I've noticed a few different mods that feature vest utilizing BIS vest standards seem to lose protection for some reason so something is getting lost in the config process I think.

I know Cunico is experiencing this issue in his vests and is exploring a solution so maybe get in touch with him?

Again I'm stoked to see the mod coming back! Can't wait to see where you take it!

I actually have one which I ported to the game and intended to include in the mod, but its source is questionable. I think it may have been ripped from a game, but I'm not sure.

BadHabitz, any chance you can look into the MP JIP issues with these units? Whenever a player JIP, the randomization script runs and everyone's outfit gets scrambled.

- Removed MX and MXGL models as we now have hiddenSelections for custom black MX versions.

Does this mean that the MX versions included in the mod are removed completely? I prefer them immensely to BI's half-assed Black MX rifles.

No, they're still there. They're just packaged differently in the pbo than before if my crude understanding has it right

That's correct. It's just changed to use the MX models that are already in the game, instead of custom models in previous versions of this mod.

Users will see no changes. It's just a behind-the-scenes config change that makes the download slightly lighter, since there's no longer a need for MX models other than BI models.

I've updated the download links to point towards Armaholic. I'll work with them in the future to avoid these problems.

This jip issue was raised in the old thread. Kerc Kasha appeared to have a solution http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?159271-PG-Services-Private-Military-Company&p=2719660&viewfull=1#post2719660

I'll be working on an update this weekend, and the JIP issue will be a priority.

Just curious Habitz, do you have any big changes in plan for the mod in the future? Or is it more or less going to stay in line with Pomi's original intent?

I only ask because I and a huge number in the community I'm sure run this always and it'd be awesome to see a roadmap on what you plan for it.

Cheers and lookin forward to your work!

It's a good question, so let me ramble a little bit...

I'm not a huge fan of optional configurations. That means you're not likely to see a variety of optional configs where PG units will be using weapons from other mods (massi's weapons, RH rifles, etc). If other mods change and I have to react, there could be time where the mod isn't completely functional. It also means I have to react to changes that come from BI, and also from other modders. It's possible I could do something, but I'm not sure if it would be bundled with the main mod, and even then it would be stated that maintaining those configs would not be a priority.

I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel. So if things are present in other mods, then I'd recommend using those mods. An example would be shemaghs and balaclavas... plenty of them exist in other mods, so I'm not going to spend time on trying to do versions of my own.

I'm looking to add vehicles to replace the three Offroad re-texture versions I have in the mod now. I like the idea of a transport, armed and cargo version, but using the Offroad from the base game is just a placeholder. Working on the A2 PMC SUV is an option that I'd find acceptable, but I'm also interested in adding something completely new for the community. Not going to tip my hand, but I have a certain vehicle in mind, and I just need one of my friends to clear up some free time so we can start working on it. So adding new ground vehicles is something I want to do.

As I'm looking through the files and thinking about what to do, I'm always paying special attention to the overall size of the mod. We're under 100mb now, and I don't want to push it too high. Like you said, a lot of people run with this mod, and I like the idea of this mod not being a massive download. That being said, I don't know if I want to add more uniforms or not. I think there are plenty now, and adding more at this point feels like we'd be adding just for the sake of adding something. Unless a good idea comes around which makes sense to add, I think the actual uniforms are set.

I'd like to know what people are doing with the mod. Is it being used mostly for gearing up to go against AI, or for PVP/TvT? Is it being used for friendly AI using the PG units, versus opfor? What kind of things would you like to see?

In the end, there are some things that I'd like to change and add, but the core reason I asked to take over the mod was to maintain it. When BI makes changes, certain things in mods need to be changed in order to remain in working order. I can understand pomigit's desire to step back, but in the end I know this mod is widely used, and as long as I'm interested in A3 I want to make sure PG Services is working and up to date for the community.

BadHabitz if you want my two cents:

For one side I tend to use the mod as friendly or enemy AI ( although I sometimes make missions where I'm one of the PMCs ).

Personally I hate requirements, because it makes you have a huge amount of mods linked one to the other and keep track of their updates, sometimes that creates incompatibilities. Besides I thing this mod is strong enough to be standalone ( in the vanilla game you already have balaclavas and shemaghs ).

The only thing I personally dislike from this mod is the use of the vanilla weapons, as I tend to use them in modern settings ( and I'm forced to create configs ). So it could be nice if some of the units had modern weapons.

New vehicles would be a nice addition too. Although I'd keep the offroads for mission retro-compatibility and also take advantage of the feature: firing from vehicles.

BadHabitz,it's really great Pomi allowed you to take over PG.

A few suggestions after reading your last post:

Imo would be nice to keep the configs to BI weapons,if people want other weapon packs they could download and add them.

Same for uniforms,gear etc,we already have quite a nice and big selection in current PG version.

Like you said the A2 PMC SUV would be miles better suited for these guys,the A3 BMW X6 look-alike is more suited for VIP ride than a regular merc vehicle.Toyota Landcruisers should also fit nice with them if you find someone to make them.For MRAP,a vehicle like RG-31 would also be adequate.

As per your question,I mostly use these guys as friendly AI against baddie:p AI in Jagged Alliance scenarios or "My private army" missions.
