I support this mod, Thank You for all the hard work and tireless hours you slammed into this faction pack. I just recently read the over-exaggerated articles online spewing nonsense saying that the Arma modding comunity supports the islamo-nazi's and have myself been brainstorming over how to recreate this faction in a way that is humiliating to their cause but yet still allows us 'free world thinkers' to rack up the casualty counter on them realistically. No ideas thus far except maybe adding a picture of jesus where their circle is and making the arched arabic words read "Wish peace to all" or something along those lines. lolz Glad to see I can get back to work on these guys with the LGB again. Thank You!

A request is to change the jungle and flektran camo.

it doesnt fit and is kinda low res.

Try using some beige windjackets and that sort of stuff.

The game also already has beige T-shirts which can be used in the game.

maybe adding some iraqi and syrian camo to the isis gents too

Look forward to seeing those 2 factions, especially the Peshmerga... Hezbollah would be nice to have also.

Nice skin and vehicle textures, but I think the quality of The Massis weapon pack are quite low, and you should consider using RHS instead as your depdendecy, which gives the majority of needed weapons( in much higher quality with custom sounds), and also gives explosives, and armored vehicles you could use, and also re texture.

Not to mention all the vests and other awesome stuff they have, which i think could definitely be used as well.

Do you mean the vehicle pack? Or are you talking about CUP?

Their logo is the Shahada, which is a Islamic verse which says "There is no god but Allah" and "Mohammad messenger of Allah". It's not actually IS's own logo, they just use it, and there is nothing wrong with the Shahada in itself. If you modify the Shahada, you will be insulting all Muslims, not just IS.

Beyond that, there is no need to make humiliating symbols or what not for IS. Playing a game or watching a movie with a certain character or theme in it doesn't mean you support it or want to do it. That's illogical as hell. I mean seriously, there is a video game about being a piece of toast... is anyone going to accuse players of wanting to be a piece of toast??

I'm gonna have to agree with one of the posters above, Massi's weapon pack is just a pain to have installed when trying to make a custom mission that you wanna release when its done (hint, hint). So you might wanna use RHS: E as a dependency, instead of Massi's. And great mod, had the pleasure of testing it out today. IS vs. USMC FR is quite fun to watch :D

I really don't see what's wrong with Massi's weapon - great variety and close to no issues.

Besides, read the OP : it is the CUP weapons being used here.

These comlaints that are posted here about Massi's weapons are definitely outdated. his last update sharply increased most (if not all) his weapon textures, added a suite of custom optics and rail attatchments. and like the poster above stated "These are the Community Upgrade Projects's Weapon Pack" which are pretty much straight ports from A2 & CO, however they too are receiving texture upgrades and model refinements. I think the choice of weapons was a fine one.

Taking CAF_AG, and a couple other faction mods as an example, it is pretty easy to write a seperate 'optional' config that would allow players to use a different weapon pack. (If he decides to go that route)
