Viking PMC - Official Mod

Viking PMC - Official Mod

 

 

 

The Viking PMC - Official Mod is a clan-created game overhaul to fit the PMC lifestyle within arma communities. It features various improvements to the game, such as UI improvements, customized reskins of gear + vehicles as well as custom assets, quality of life improvements and more!


All of the gear with a logo on will have a counter-part to allow public users the enjoyment of our content.


You will notice that some of the retextured gear is not from the vanilla game. This is so other communities can use the modded retextures as well. You can take a look at the Viking PMC - Extensions Mod for an example on how to add the gear. (Or use that mod itself and ignore the dependency warnings.)

 

 

Features

You can join our development discord to discuss the mod and it's features with developers and other community memebers.

You can view the GITHUB (WIP) page to see how frameworks can be used and read information about the mod.

 

The follwing list is generalized:

  • Custom music and sounds
  • Custom retextures of uniforms, vests, backpacks, headgear, facewear, items and more
  • Custom retextures of vehicles
  • Custom Zeus modules and functions
  • Various game Mechanics (adjust the game to our liking)
  • Custom factions (both friendly and hostile) - Requires this.

 

Please see the workshop page for images.


Installation
Simply install this pack and load it on the launcher.

 

Credits
Before retexutres are made, we have contacted the authors and requested permission. If you as a mod creator have noted something that you did not consent to, please message myself or another contributor so we can remove it ASAP.

  • VSM All In One Collection - Allowed retexture rights for their custom gear.
  • Vehicles created by Danz and Skan.
  • Femal3 - High quality female player models and faces for our use.
  • Some gear has been used in complience with the licencing information found on the Multi-Play Uniforms workshop page as of 17/02/2019.
  • ALIAScartoons for his amazing EMP and Monsoon scripts that we have turned into functions. - If you'd like to add these to your script-mod workshop collection, pm me and I can export them to a single mod ;).

 

 

How you can contribute
We are looking for 3D artists to create some PMC-themed assets for the mod to widen our features that we offer. You don't necessarily need to know how to add it to arma, I can always help/do this for you. It is worth mentioning that we as a group offer this mod to the community in our spare time and thus we do it for free. We earn no money from it either, it is purely for pleasure. Further details can be explained if you are interested in joining the team. If you're interested in joining the team, then please send me a message in discord. 🙂

 

We are also looking for texture artists to create PMC-themed assets for the mod to widen our features that we offer. Again like the above, it's done in your free-time etc. If you're interested in doing work and getting your name out there within the arma community then please send me a message in discord. 🙂

This is looking interesting! 

 

Is that a Norwegian camouflage colour palette on a Swedish splinter camo pattern?

New update is coming soon, including some more Eurocopter helicopters! We're working on custom textures and setting up some features of our own alongside this helicopter, like incorping ACE Rappeling, as well as the ability to properly use the stretcher.

These eurocopters were used with permission given by Luke's EC 135 mod!

In terms of our own 3D models, we're designing and creating a 2000 style Mitsubishi Montero/Hokoron hybrid offroader, equipped with chunky tires, flood lights, winch and more, as well as a 2035 face lift of this vehicle. We're using a Toyota Tacoma front and a Chevrolet Suburban 1500 rear to create a more modern, but still highly functional offroader. There will be branding images of these vehicles released in the future, but just wanted to let people know we are planning new, custom assets 🙂

Don't forget to view the code and extra info about the mod via github here.

Enjoy using the mod and it's features!

Version 1.1.2 STATUS UPDATE #1

Hello all, so the mod development has started to slow down due to myself and other developers starting university, jobs etc. We are continuing to add new content, but it is alot slower than the summer. We can only apologise for this, however the mod is created in our spare time, which is very little ahah.
One of the things that I am working on at the moment is the function rework/streamline process. I am cutting code and trying to make all of my functions run quicker, as well as fix bugs. For example, the mission template tool currently doesn't work with ACE3's interaction system. For this reason, I decided to remove the ability for communities to customize this tool to their liking. Until I can work out what causes this error, I will keep it this way. Another, newer feature coming is the player displaying function. This will display the players name above their unit and also add extra information. This will be in the next update, hopefully. One final function that has recently been updated was the Discord Rich Presence information. It's purpose is to add a little more information to discord about what you're up to in-game, instead of just seeing "Arma 3". The rest of the team are also working on their own features, but as we're not 100% sure when these things will be ready, we will keep quiet for the time being 🙂

Just thought i'd give a little update on this, as well as some of the ideas we have bouncing around at the present time.

Version 1.1.3 STATUS UPDATE #1

 

Hello all!
So it's been a while since an update has been released. I'd like you all know that we are still working on things and have some great ideas and assets both in the works and coming soon! We have recently acquired 3, and perhaps even more, 3D Artists to create 3D assets and really push this mod to a new level.

Apart from ideas already mentioned elsewhere, I wont hint at what we are planning as to not fixate designs and ideas. Stay tuned for the next status update to see more about them.

Alongside 3D assets, I am still working on scripts and configs for the mod, such as a new menu for quick access to functions, a sort of Function Guider. The aim is to teach a Zeus how to use scripts/functions to help improve their mission in a easy to use format. More on this soon however.

 

As always, i'm optimizing existing stuff and making space for the new content 🙂 Thank you for the continued support to the mod and I look forward to seeing your feedback when 1.1.3 is released!

Version 1.1.3 STATUS UPDATE #2
Hello all!

So we're in December and still haven't got Version 1.1.3? What's happening?! Where's the update?!
Well let me explain.
At the moment, I had planned this to be pushed out on the 6th of Dec, however we're almost 6 days due and still haven't updated. The sole reason for this is time. At the moment, almost all of the developers are super busy with life stuff, for myself and a few others, university modules are ending soon and work needs to be completed. For others, jobs are ending this year and so their work needs to be completed before the next working year.

 

Due to these reasons, we haven't been able to work on modding in the same time frames we had in the summer. Assets are still being made, but a lot slower than seen before. I can only apologise for this because I like to stick to deadlines and missing them sets back other projects. At this current stage, I hope to push this version out by the end of December at the latest which will feature, most importantly, the Mission Template Tool within the 3DEN Editor that will have customizable options for all users, not just Viking. There are other assets planned for the new year and a "2019 Year in review" is going to be posted sometime in the next week or two. This document will include a lot of information about what we've done this past year and what's being planned for 2020.

 

Again, I can only apologise for the delay but I hope you're with me that Education and Jobs come first (Not to say this mod isn't important, we sink a lot of effort into this and all for the community).

Thank you all for the ever continued support and I hope you're looking forward to seeing our plans for the next year!

So it's coming up to the end of the year and I decided to put together a year in review and also give you an insight into the development planned for the next year. It has been a year of a kind and we have learnt alot through out it. A massive thank you to both the developers for their time and efforts into the mod and also to you, the players who are using the content we provide.

We look forward to the upcoming year and hope you join us in this! 😄
