173rd Airborne Brigade ACU Units

Recommended Posts

can u configure the weapons? coz they use m16 and i don't know but i think they don't use it in the reality

The latest set they use the M4. Basically the US Army is replaced the M-16's with M4's. The USMC still use the M-16, but the latest variant the M-16A4.

@laborj

Only one of my units uses the M16A4 ACOG, that is the DMR. For obvious reasons. The other standard rifleman use the M4 series. The Machine Gunner and Automatic Rifleman use the 249 SAW, and 240B.

The Army has brought back the M14 in EBR style, might want to think about added that to your DMR guys in the next release perhaps.

Nice work on the units, my favorite right now!

Here's a little bugreport from me:

1) When using the Replacement config, the units have no wounds (this is fixable by copying Wounds config from 173.pbo to the replacement pbo)

2) When I put a crewman on the map, I get a popup window with this error:

Cannot load texture 38id\data\us_soldier_nohq.paa

And crewmans backpack and magazine pouches have desert texture, not ACU (not sure if that's intended or not?)

3) Snipers backpack texture is a bit.. deformed

4) If any of your soldiers is holding a weapon, this little pouch model is conflicting with the magazine pouch (looks worse when the soldier dies):

Hope it helps.

Keep up the good work smile_o.gif

The replacement file has changed again, correct? I see that the heavy/light files aren't there any more. I'm assuming this is because you removed the DAPS but I just want to make sure.

@Wolle

Sorry mate, won't happen again smile_o.gif

@Cole

Thank you for reporting the bugs I'll get right to a fix, the crewman are supposed to have a tan Molle webbing texture, add some variety. I'll also fix the little pouch that looks bad. The DMR texture needs to be fixed, will be done ASAP.

@Manzilla

Yes the replacement file changed again, I removed the DAPS versions of the units.

EDIT: The bugs that Cole so kindly reported have been fixed. Will released update soon.

Just one thing. What are DAPS?  huh.gif

"Daps" used to be what we called the horrible old Army gym

shoes (canvas uppers, rubber soles, odour that would kill a

cow - height of fashion back in about 1906).

@Binkowski

You already make 2 upadates on one page, work on one big fix, not on 100 other small fixes.

Yeah, I'm sorry for all the problems that are coming and the insta-updates. Next update won't be for awhile.

Maybe they just pop up after the release or he missed it, forgot, etc. At least he's working on them. Do what you gotta do Binkowski.

Col. Faulkner,

It's Deltoid & Axillary Protection System

EDIT: Oops forgot the system. The "&" usually isn't part of it though.

Thank you vilas! One thing I am having a problem with is the fact that all of my units look "clone" like. They all look the same, I'd like to add some more variety. But I don't have adequate MOLLE webbings and such.
