I aim to get this sorted with the development team, but at present

they're under the impression that server keys are not necessary to

use this modification. Please PM me why you're compelled to ask it.

Thanks!

Also, any idea's on the next camo guys?

We'll release a MARPAT pack next then, seems extremely popular

around the developer network and my group as well. We will be

releasing monthly if not weekly, so stand by for quick releases as

making Multicam only took us three or so weeks to complete it.

We'll keep you posted.

Evaluating this now.

Great quality. Nice variety.

Waaaaaaay too big. Waaaaaay too many variations on each outfit. And some things just don't make sense. Tan ghillie suit? Grey ghillie suit? What??

You would enjoy much more popularity if you released a "lite" version of this pack. I don't need to select between fourteen different glove and balaclava colors in combination with just the right belt color or what-have-you. I don't need to select the length of the balaclava down the player character's neck. This is beyond obsessive compulsive, and makes it a very hard sell for multiplayer.

Please create a lite version so that I don't have to tell folks who play our campaigns to download 2GB+ just so they can have a high-quality OCP uniform, plate carrier, and MICH helmet.

SUMMARY

General Equipment Addon Release (MARPAT) is a high quality package added in

to GEAR. Giving the player the choice of MARPAT in their new arsenal will be a

powerful step forwards on the digital battlefield. This edition covers the GEAR

MARPAT (3 ver.) release and is a warm welcome to an already impressive mod.

NOTE: General Equipment Addon Release (USA) is an optional addon provided

to players in the effort to keep the flags from the previous CORE release but

provided superfluously in addendum. This release will enable players to use a

series of kits such as the Coyote Brown Rucksack vis a vis USMC related kits.

INSTALLATION

-1- Download from the downloads page listed above online.

-2- Extract to your ArmA III installation directory found at:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3 "

-3- Overwrite prior versions and activate the mod in-game.

-4- We recommend using an ArmA III launcher or tool for it.

-5- When using GEARs Camo expansions overwrite @GEARS.

-6- Enjoy.

NOTE: All expansions require GEAR CORE modification addon.

DOWNLOADS:

camouflaged units and use them in their missions as they see fit. Our camo

Thank you ! We appreciate your support in this, we may edit some of

the MARPAT material later but please don't hesitate to try it out and

PM critique. That said, enjoy and thanks for your support as always.

Evaluating this now.

You would enjoy much more popularity if you released a "lite" version of this pack. I don't need to select between fourteen different glove and balaclava colors in combination with just the right belt color or what-have-you. I don't need to select the length of the balaclava down the player character's neck. This is beyond obsessive compulsive, and makes it a very hard sell for multiplayer.

We would have provided this but given the vast irregularities in uniforms

on ArmA III mods, our development team have striven for purpose-built

libraries of uniforms. Choice is always superior, and we have had a lot of

talks about releasing a "lite" version, but in the end using the templated

system of saving "kits" using virtual arsenal, this became a moot point in

the discussion. We did at least discuss the request and did reply to you.

That said, the entire point and purpose of GEAR is to provide a template

industry standard for regular uniforms. While CORE is incredibly vast, on

the surface teams will enjoy having the basis from which to add to camo

variations in their kits at any level. That being said, we've begun a finish

on the last camouflages, and we are now down to approximately 8 left.

I hope that helps clear up your questions, and an update to anyone who

asked, these versions will be including server keys and require tests, so

feedback is vital, please provide any critique or feedback regarding their

implementation as tests continue. Many thanks and gratitude for support.

I agree with some of the posts on here. While the content is alright, it seems a lot of it is simply re-textures. While the number is impressive, it's impractical for units just due to the quantity. Good overall I guess thus far. Keep it up.

kneepads? KNEEPADS

The development team is considering expanding into area's

such as the potential for a new UI slot available in-game in

the virtual arsenal. If successful, kneepads and more could

be demonstrated successfully as an independent object too.

Fingers crossed, that one is very tough to implement.

As always big thanks to you Six, you've provided an element of autonomy

to dispatching the modification across several platforms. We'll be setting

up a screenshot for the GEAR MARPAT once we have concluded post mod

release in the next few hours. Work is tight with the team all working and

camouflages become more diverse. Again, many, many thanks for all of it.

I agree with some of the posts on here. While the content is alright, it seems a lot of it is simply re-textures. While the number is impressive, it's impractical for units just due to the quantity. Good overall I guess thus far. Keep it up.

The main objective of the modification is to provide an HD aspect to ArmA III's

default uniforms, so retexturing is the principle aim, you're absolutely right. The

sheer number isn't what is impressive alone, this project essentially is estimate

to taken (initially) three years to create. In three months KetsuCorp devs made

incredible leaps and bounds towards developing quicker, higher quality textures.

The practicality comes in when using virtual arsenal, and with the import/export

function, a user can create a number of units or teams based on their preferred

load out. Furthermore, with the intentions to create units based off of these and

other kits, the team is quite excited about the aspect of the library in of itself.

We appreciate your interest in this, keeping in mind that this is a project aimed

at computer science, a lot of our development team are students looking to set

up their careers in game design, what we have accomplished is a larger-scaled

modification in game-release timespans and did so with quality in mind. It's fun!

Finally, thanks for the critique, since the development team changed hands in

the last few months we have seen exceptional increases in development time

and our work continues towards a unified goal of learning, teaching and doing.

That said, do you have a pro-active recommendation or solution to your own

concern about the quantity of content? By far we have exceeded our agenda

of development goals, so perhaps if you could provide an actual solution we'd

enjoy the opportunity to implement this development as we continue moving.

I also believe that these are very HQ items. As an alternative to a lite version, would it be possible to make each pack standalone? That would save people the big required download.

EDIT: I think this is a good in between for your development of the addon, and what the community would like. I believe that a standalone pack for each camo variety would greatly improve the accessibility of your excellent work.

Also, tally one more up for a Canadian Pack!

This seems like a pro-active solution, let us get back to

you on eliminating the required addon status, there is a

ton of content to redo if this potentially is to work at all.

Thanks for the feedback!
