Hi guys,

 

this is a thing I've been wanting to do for some time, but making '80s Tanoa' took precedence. 🙂 The basic idea is a (Post-)"Old Man"-Era Horizon Islands Armed Forces faction mainly sponsored by CSAT (either formed shortly before, during, or in the aftermath of the happenings of Old Man). As such, their arsenal is going to be CSAT-influenced with several non-CSAT additions from Tanoa's colorful past. More concept stuff to follow.

 

The mod will be based on vanilla and DLC assets only.

 

First teaser of new infanterists with retextured LDF uniform (lizard pattern by Oxi):

Okay, so I narrowed down the scope a bit:

 

I only want Vanilla Arma3 and Apex as dependencies - as such, infantry will have to do with a retextured AAF officer uniform and Tactical Chest Rigs (no LDF uniforms or kipchak vest):

And I started retexturing vehicles. They're gonna be a nice plain green color as a nod to 80s Tanoa's HIA. Thanks to CUP team for providing me with the HIL roundel. 🙂

Qilin and 4WD ATV:

In general, these dudes are going to be pretty "low-tech", so no tanks, jets, or gear that feels _too_ specialized.

 

Best regards,

Texturing went very smoothly - vehicle lineup for a first release is gonna be this:

As I stated, this version of Horizon Island's Armed Forces aren't going to be the best equipped, as they have basically just been established with help from CSAT.

 

Bonus screenshot of dirtied-up Marid and Mk18 EBR, which is going to be their DMR (found its way to their arsenal before CSAT "occupation").

Resuming work after a short break with a retextured Caesar BTT used as a reconnaissance plane:

The mod will soon be ready for a first public release.

Haven't forgotten about this but just recently got the motivation and time to finish it up for a first release.

Their main antagonists are Syndikat/L'Ensemble guerrilas and covertly operating NATO agents.

Looks great overall. I like the minimalistic approach to this and not strive to make everything slightly different. The faction emblem look just slightly too bright and 'patched on' for me. Perhaps the colors are just a little too bright or the emblem is not 'worn' enough? Or it is just me 🙂

Yeah, I think you're right, it definitely pops too much on some of the vehicles - texture work is somewhat iffy in other areas as well. I will definitely get back to this mod in the future and fix it up some more. 🙂
