VILAS addons release thread

Recommended Posts

Very nice work topas :)

btw can you also change the tyre texture ,because that tyre is looking like from old skoda 120 :D

It looks lite it's exactly the case. There's no tyre on this car's UV, so it's sourced from some BIS car... Unless it's all remapped it's going to stay this way

--------------------------------

Ok, any special requests anyone?

be serious, French Gendarmerie do not use Czech Skoda (or like in past you wanted Polish Lublin-2 van)

if it was Peugeot, Renault ...

better maybe VW Golf from BIS ? i know that game miss modern van... but Skoda in Gendarmerie ?

@grimfist:

you are not alone ;)

the animation bug is known already, and vilas has uploaded a temporary fix too, meaning that he removed the custom anims for the rifles.

be asured that he's looking into what causes the problem.

@vilas:

I found that this bug also appears on the launchers :( just checked it with the RPO launcher.

ahh ty venom,

also a little request for the future:

add some mudjadeen to the weapon holders pack.

the takistani locals are idea (just normal afgans with chincom rigs)

i have added them manually with vilas weapons but it gets complicated when you want to spawn them mid game#

EDIT: just realized something already replacing them!

Don't be harsh on the man,

There's not many police cars out there; and Skoda as an European brand is more believable than and antiquated VAZ that came with the game, or Ford Crown Victoria 2003 available out there...

Apart from those nations already mentioned, I do not think so.

I was hoping to see a German version but the only foreign make used that I could recall was a Peugeot in the Saarland region.

The Octavia has a german brother the VW Bora... Both cars was made on the base of the VW Golf IV who ist include in ArmA 2.

Oooops, I forgot about Germany... That's because it's almost identical to the silver polish version...

Do they still use green-striped ones or was it just temporary in-between version before swithcing to the EU-blue? Green would give us more variety

The Peugeot mentioned would be doable I think

There's even a free 3D mesh for it available

Which brings me to a slight off-topic thought...

With all those versions done it'd be good to have a comparable variety of civilian vehicles available...Some fresh air in this field would be more than welcome; For me it even could be GTA or Mafia ports; properly adapted to A2.

Getting permissions isn't a problem. I acquired numerous ok's in last weeks. The problem lies in slight differencies in addonmaking; One would not only need to convert, but as well map and texture the models. The latter would be something I'd gladly try to find time for. Converting and UV-mapping would be something I'd eventually need volunteers for.

There's a number of resonable mid-poly vehicles that could be used, or fitting the Arma theme out there

etc. etc

Definately something that would need to be done sooner or later in my opinion - there's plenty of islands and worlds out there, and the vehicle variety available is very slim... :(

@Vilas; sorry for OT in this thread; but you know you share my views here ;)

German Police cars had from 1977 - 2000 green/white color (hood/doors/trunk are green).

http://www.polizeiautos.de/show_one.php?id=2467

Since ca 2000 the cars were normal silver Versions with removable green labels who were sold to civilians after using because they are leased. Since 2005 the german police is going to use the EU blue/silverstyle. The car on your picture is only short time solution. The german police cars has the same style like the polish police new style.

http://www.polizeiautos.de/show_one.php?id=4740

On the end and beginning of the word "Polizei" it given the webadress to the state who the car is owning. (e.g. www.POLIZEI.schleswig-holstein.de)

After german police turn to blue/silver cars they have get new numberplates restrictions. Before 2005 they had the first letters of their city. Now of they federal state. (e.g. SH - 00 000 for Schleswig-Holstein)

Marseille , old Passat white/green can be made for your pack easy

Arma1 hatchback + reskin + light on top :] and you have 80s Police car for your units

exactly

also you can change a little shaders/texture

front in this Arma1 car is fictional, but with changed grill, lights - it can be VW old Passat :)

_co, _smdi, _nohq changed (if you need any help) and you have VW for your pack

Topas - if you preparing such Police reskins pack, please also have in mind Lada (Russian version), than it will be selfstanding addon (including Octavia model, maybe UAZ 451 van for Russian/ CDF Police too )

there is addon of US law enforcement , so why not east law enforcement adddon :]

than all people who love such type of missions (SP, MP) will have fun , no matter what country they are :]

in Arma1 i had such SLA/RACS pack (maybe it was not popular addon, there was Landrover, UAZ , Volga, UAZ van as Police, Ambulance )

i would repeat this idea now too

Lada has one sided-texture only, and the Grazdanska Militia logo is set as an alpha texture.

Making customs skins for this via alpha channels and layers? Well, maybe sometime, but at this point it would be much more work than it is on Skoda.

Besides, that Lada is too old. Even a Lada 1600 would look old. Somethingnewer would be nice;
