Marine Expeditionary Force Mod

Recommended Posts

Sorry about that Matt, I didn't touch the LWH helmet w/o goggles, due to the reason I wasn't aware it also had the same issues. Would you like me to go over it and make a fix?

That would be great, I really appreciate your help.

Fix uploaded. PM with link sent.

Thanks, you have been so helpful. I am going to get, now probably, version 1.9 out soon to get over all this mess. Everything in the last changelog will be 100% good to go as well as even more that I have done in the meantime.

The poll on the thread that will decide the next weapon pack that the mod will have compatible units for is tied right now. If you haven't voted and are interested in doing so please vote within the next week. Very soon I will begin work on version 2.0 which is going to incorporate this new compatibility. Thanks for the continued support for the mod from everyone.

Am I going to be the one to say this okay.

Firstly, I love the chestrigs so don't take this as a complete hate post but the tactical backpacks, especially the tan one are sorta plain. I also hate the NATO uniforms, is there going to be any opportunity in the future that there may also be a AAF retexture with the same quality? Everything new unit I've been seeing related to the marines have all jumped onto this uniform as there primary fatigues and I cannot stand running around in them, of course thats my opinion but theres a limited choice (3 uniforms to one camouflage).

AAF retextures came with the last update. More updates will come to include more gear and detailing existing gear. The current version released is by no means a finished product.

So I am trying to go ahead and check off ALiVE compatibility while I am doing similar work. My groups configuration is based on the ORBAT and standard given on the ALiVE Wiki. However, in the mission, I get the TACOM message, "no groups available". ALiVE does seem to be placing my custom helicopters though which is what makes this more confusing. The groups work perfectly in game and with Zeus. I will show my code below, and would appreciate it if someone could show me what i'm doing wrong.

So, how's this coming along?

Things are coming along just fine. Zeus compatibility is fixed. I've 90% of the work for the RH Weapons compatibility. ALiVE is somewhat compatible, trying to get 100%. All existing units have updates to their config.The "Infantry Billets" is coming along, probably the area that I have done the least work, but will have it done. The new recon units are 75% done also. I think I might go ahead and add Ghosthawk, Hummingbird, Pawnee, and Blackfoot units.

Version 2.0 is Released! Enjoy!

Hi Mattastic, thanks for the great mod. I use your uniform/vests/headgear for an amphibious assault Zeus game mode mission that is on the Imrali terrain. We launch from an LHD using AH-1Zs, UH-1Ns, AV-8Bs, LCACs, AAVs, HMMWVs, MRAPs, and LAVs. One things I'd love to see is if you could make a proper Marine Corps flight suit and crewman suit. I've looked and looked and looked and there just isn't a single Marine Corps flight suit modeled anywhere I can find, despite the fact that they are worn by aviators, maintenance personnel, infantrymen and armored crews.

I would love to see this ingame:

There are also green versions:

The flight suits are very popular even outside of aviation due to their level of comfort.

Thanks again for the great mod.

I do plan to include aviators and crewman gear down the road. I have a former marine in my clan that wore a combat onesie in Iraq, so i have a close reference to consult when it is time. Thanks for the use and support of the mod! Send me that mission and it's requirements, I'd like to check it out.

Teriyaki's Uniform mod has both versions of that flight suit in it. You should check it out, they are great.

Nice, the light gray paint really gives those helos a sleek, future-ish look. That said, I'd love to see dedicated "Marine" helos someday (preferably cooler-looking than Army ones, as is the case IRL :) ). The BIS helicopters are all derived from land-based ones, none of them really had much in terms of carrier capability.

I would like to have helicopters like that also. I don't really have a team working directly with me on this everyday. So, I am limited to my own capabilities. Suffice to say I am not capable of making those choppers happen alone, at least not yet. I juggle work, school, and an arma clan so getting things done at the level there at is a challenge itself. However now that I have a lot of the things I want and then some out of the way I can focus my time on doing some more centralized work. Like trying to bring one of those types of asset into the mod, perhaps a Venom. Ground vehicles are also something in the plans. I don't really have an end game for this mod. Pretty much will go on as a project of mine until I run out of things I can do. The current textures of the helos will do for now, I plan on doing more detail work to them in the future.
