Armageddon 1914-1918 WW1 Expansion [WIP]

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm pleased to present Armageddon 1914-1918, a mod intended to complement the pre-existing "WW1 remembrance mod" and expand playability of Arma 3 into various early 20th century conflicts.

Many thanks to kju from IFA3 and Felix and Eaglke from the WW1 mod for allowing me to make re-textures of some of their assets, which make a large part of this mod.

Included in this mod:

 

 

 

 

5 New factions - British Expeditionary Force (France/Flanders), Indian Expeditionary Force, ANZACs, British Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, Ottoman Army.

  • British Expeditionary Force (France/Flanders) and Indian Expeditionary Force - New re-textures to recreate the British
  •  Army of 1914 featuring several different regiments (Royal Fusiliers, Grenadier Guards, King's Own Scottish Borderers, Royal Field Artillery, 18th Hussars)

Classes include - Officers, Riflemen, Marksmen, Grenadiers and Vickers Machine gun crew.

  • Australian and New Zealand Expeditionary Force and British Mediterranean Expeditionary Force - Faction including grenadiers and various riflemen, with ANZACs in Gallipoli-style uniforms and British units in

Gallipoli and Middle Eastern theatre uniforms. WIP as ANZAC hat will likely be re-modelled.

Looking good! There’s a guy on the steam workshop named Conway who’s made a pretty good Anzac hat (both the folded and unfolded variants with badge and everything.)I’m sure you could ask him for permission to use it if you don’t wanna go through the trouble of modelling

Latest additions to the mod include:

  • Rowboat with semi-functional oars (capacity of 9)
  • Upgraded slouch hat with a few variations
  • Over 20 new modular trench models for the Loos terrain, although all of them are subject to change until I can find the best way to get AI working with complex trench fortifications
  •  New British uniform but it'll needs better textures after which I plan to add divisional identities to each uniform and headgear. Planned divisions and identities include - 7th Division, 16th (Irish) Division, 41st Division, 1st Australian Division, 3rd Canadian Division, 1st South African Infantry brigade, 55th (West Lancashire) Division and the New Zealand Division. 
  • Gurkha regiments are also planned
  • The Tam O'Shanter has been replaced and improved.
  • Soft Peaked Cap variation has been added.
  • New 1908 Pattern webbing
  • New 1903 Pattern Bandolier 
  • New belt for officer's uniform
