It's a Steam bug, 3CB can't do much about that.

Thanks for clearing that up Dedmen. I wasn't aware of that myself. 🙂

 

Also, great screenshots @cu3b4ll. Shows off the different kit depending upon the side of the Takistan Police / Army faction (Pro-West, Independent, and Pro-Russia / Iran).

 

@TexTactical: More things will be likely be slowly added, but the aim is not to compete with CUP or Project Opfor in terms of quantity. I am adding things requested by 3cb mission makers for our Private Ops and Public Server. I am busy working on some Cold War Era Soviets at the moment to give our BAF and Spearpoint units something to fight against and I'd like to add the Cherno police.

I encountererd a small bug, if one cosinder it a bug:

While placing units in editor, in my case groups of ANP, the soldiers didn't display their actual loadout, for example the DSHKM Bags are missing. They get their loadouts correctly after starting the mission however.

Those first two screenshots are amazing (especially the first one). It looks like art, not screenshots. Can I ask how you made them? Software, Settings, Mod, Poses, etc?

 

Fantastic!

@Laumi, that is working as intended.  The mod uses the same loadout mechanics as our BAF units.

@lifetap if thats intended, fine. Haven't done much with the BAF Mods, tbh. It's just a little confusing to me 😕

 

Edit: Is that the same with the civillians? Does Randomization take place after Mission statup?

Essentially the base unit is put down in Eden, then upon game load, the backpack, helmets and vests are randomized according to the class of the unit. In this case, they are given the gun or tripod of a static weapon. I suppose it is something I could fix in a future update. If it is an issue for taking images, just give the unit a pack via the Arsenal for now.

 

Also, if you want to turn off the randomization of a unit(s), just click into its properties and use the tick box to enable or disable 3cb randomization.

 

One more thing to mention, all randomized textures on vehicles - notably the civilian ones - should appear the same across multiplayer. They are server-side, not client, so all red cars will be red to everyone etc.... Useful for calling out sightings.

Great job! Thank you for bringing a lot of good stuff in this mod! Appreciate your work! Just wanted to inform you about few issues. 1) Weapon RPK-74 in your mod should be called just "RPK" because RPK-74 uses 5.45 ammo and RPK uses 7.62. And it can't use 150 ammo box. 2) T-34 and T-55 tanks have issues with shooting sounds and effects. 3) Some RPG-7 fighters, UN for exaple, use knapsacks instead of RPG bag for rockets. Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback. 1) RPK is a known issue. I'll correct the name. However it shouldn't be able to use the Zafir ammo so it must be inheriting it. I'll try and remove the option. 2) What is the issue with the sounds and the tanks? They use RHS ammo / sounds / shaders etc... What is happening exactly? 3) That shouldn't be the case. I'll check that. Are you seeing them with Knapsacks in Eden or in game?

 

Edit: 3) Just checked this. When AT unit is placed in Eden it has default rifleman pack. When loaded into game it correctly has the RPG pack so it's fine to play with / against. I can likely fix the Eden visuals in a future update.

Congratulations on the release. Been looking forward to seeing these units since watching a preview on YT a week or more ago.

 

They're undoubtedly the product of a lot of sweat, care and attention to detail. Thank you!

 

If I might also offer some constructive criticism, IMHO this randomization process should be an optional feature (ideally enabled/disabled globally via a removable PBO) rather than something that needs to be opted-out of for each unit (with indeterminate/incomplete results). It replaces something expected, predictable and (I think more importantly) handled natively by the engine with user-scripting which creates additional load, dependencies and the opportunity for bugs or mod conflicts. Not suggesting it should be removed but re-architected as an extension to the game's default mechanics rather than something which out of the box seeks to subvert those mechanics.

 

Hopefully it goes without saying that you should make whatever you desire but I think the best of all worlds is possible here; fully specified loadouts for as many units as you care to define or feel it's appropriate to have listed in the editor, while retaining the ability to have still more variation through scripting. 2c.

I tested this tanks in editor and yes, they have sounds but don't have visual effects like fire and smoke when they shoot.

@Disgusting_Man: Thanks, I'll check it out. They should have the effects as they inherit it all from the BIS base tank. They have been tested prior to release and they did appear to have effects. Did you check it with just the Faction pack and required mods in case of a potential conflict with something else?

 

@Defunkt: Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately your suggestion is not something we will be implementing. It would require a fundamental reworking / restructuring of the pack. Furthermore, the randomization process is something we already us in 3CB for our own BAF units and it has proven pretty robust. All it does is randomize uniforms, headgear, vests and backpacks from an approved list. The loadout - i.e. magazines, medical supplies etc... is not affected. It is only a visual randomization. Certain units are exempt from receiving certain helmets, vests, backpacks etc...

 

The option to turn this off is included should you wish to create your own specific loadouts for mission VIPs / targets. Should you wish to remove the option en-mass, you can select all placed units and turn them off in one go.

 

EDIT: @Defunkt: Totally forgot to mention, like our BAF units, there is a 3CB Factions module that is placable on the map in Eden. In there you also have several options to change loadouts. You can remove NVGs, reduce kit loadout so that units are running low in the field etc... It may also have some options that will help you.
