Hey!
Today I want to announce our latest project, the "Advanced Combat Animations" mod, by "our" I mean Mihal, Maximili and me.

This project has been a Team effort from the beginning on and this team has brought this mod that far, that we can finally share this with you guys.

 

So what is this mod even about?

This mod adds many new Animations to be used in PvP or even PvE Combat.

Many of these Animations are from an Arma 2 mod, called "SMK" by Smookie, he did an awesome job on these animations, but sadly he's not active in the Community anymore.

So we decided to bring his mod back alive in Arma 3, but this mod won't be a straight port of his mod, we are adding new animations and features, building up upon his mod from Arma 2.

 

What's the current Status and ETA of a release?

Well, we've been working on this for several weeks now and we only got a few issues to fix.

Once these Issues are solved we will release this mod on the official Forums, Armaholic and Steam Workshop.

We are aiming for a release before the end of march.

 

If you are interested in the development of this mod, make sure to join our Discord Server here!

 

Here are some screenshots:

LICENSE CLARIFICATION

 

 

 


To clear this up at the beginning, I was unable to reach Smookie to ask him if we are allowed to port his mod, if he somehow gets back to us, I will talk to him about this.

We are not stealing anything or trying to say that his work is ours. We highly respect him and his work.

I've talked to Bohemia Interactive about this and this was the answer:

 

Quote

in case a mod creator did not publish any license on its own, the work is
automatically licensed under the standard Arma 2 share-alike license (APL-SA)
by default:

https://www.bohemia.net/community/licenses

Since he did not prohibit it, you can convert the mod into Arma 3. Just please
keep in mind three things:
- The APL-SA license prohibits you from earning money from this work in any way
(accepting purely freely given donations without any counter-value is allowed).
- The APL-SA license prohibits you from porting this into anything other than
Arma games (so no DayZ, no Ylands, no GTA-anything, etc.).
- As you said, please give the credit to the original author. :)

Nice, looking good so far. Very, very nice to see this mod picked up and continued, was definitely one that I miss. Was wondering if something like that was ever going to make it to A3...not many people making active animations these days. You had mentioned new animations (apart from the ones ported), if you don't mind me asking, what type of animations will you guys be looking into? Any kind of non-combat animations or will it all be focused directly towards combat interactions? Anyhow, will be following this and looking forward to trying it out. Thanks for bringing it back to life.

The animations from SMK are just "Cover" animations, beside of those we are currently working on takedown animations, surrendering, arresting and other actions.

We will add more at a later date, but for now we want to get the core of this mod out there.

Now you've gotten my attention.

Plans to port the SMK pistol switching?

We haven't planned adding this for now, but we will consider adding it in a later version. Thanks for your suggestion.

Nice.  I always enjoyed the SMK animations and I know Smookie was hired by BI to do the anims for A3.  I was surprised when there was no "cover" animations.   I second the pistol switch idea, really don't get why they have characters sling the weapon on their back (with the barrel pointed up no less)
