The ARMA community for collecting and sharing the documentation on modding
To be used at your own risks! I don' take responsibility in case of unexpected damage to your system
I don't play MP, so if you encounter bug, please report and I'll try to fix it
Compatibility with other mods (Alive, ACE): Not tested yet
Compatibility with ZEUS: Normally yes, but not tested
No other dependencies than Marksman and GM DLCs; otherwise this is standalone
Known bugs/Future Plans:
This is not supposed to be ultra-realistic and honestly there could be some anachronisms, but it gives my vision of a fictional unit using available assets. It is limited by my skills and the time I can spend on it, so you could probably find higher quality mods or models - still, I don't think this is redundant with existing materials. I tried however to make as neat and smooth as possible, this is the least of courtesy to the potential users. If there are any bugs to report - please let me know, and I'll try to fix it (it will be an opportunity for me to learn something new).
The code of the config could probably be optimized - I have not seen any bugs, missing relationship popping up on my system, but it is always, so please let me now
No Groups yet - to come in subsequent update
No plans for future assets, but that could come !
I will release the source files (texture templates, ported 3d model etc...)
