MGS4 Praying Mantis PMCs Release

Recommended Posts

Metal Gear Solid 4 Praying Mantis PMCs

By Ardvarkdb & Robert Hammer

pmclogo.jpg

Version Beta 1.0 12/29/09

Contains units based on the Praying Mantis PMC group from Metal Gear Solid 4. More of a re-imagining than a straight port, these units are much closer to the source material. Units range from no gear to full gear and use Robert Hammer's excellent New custom weapons pack (required!).

Additional Images

Street Search

Sniper

Ambush

Patrol

Did you hear that?

Signed Addon for Multiplayer (not tested)

Units include 9 soldiers found under Independent\ MGS4 \ Praying Mantis PMCs

Brand new Weapons pack contains M14 EBR, M4s in various configurations, and AK102s. 28 weapons total!

Special thanks to Jonny for his excellent models and textures which I used as a base for these.

If you received the internal beta you do not need to download this. Nothing has changed between the versions.

Use this addon at your own risk and enjoy!

What is wrong with Mediafire? I uploaded it myself. I asked people to mirror the weapons packs, but for now Mediafire will have to do.

M14 EBR, excellent! Well done RH

just had a mess around. Some bugs. (I think)

When you hold the pistol as a PMC and use first person aim. The pistol is held well to high to where the bullet actually lands and is off aim.

And i dont know if this was intended but they all speak Chernarussian. Not US voices.

Thanks.

YYYYYEEEEESSSSS!!! Superb job, guys. The weapon pack is just amazing.

And having a MGS based pack for ArmA is pure brilliance , too.

Awesome, I wished so much there would be someone to make\convert them; Can You also make a version without RH Guns dependency? Or a version with only new guns (like M-14 EBR or AK102)? Doesn't want to download the addon just to have another looking version of the same gun. Especially I'm trying to make a coop team's addonpack

They speak Chernarussian because they are on the independent side. I hadn't figured it out in time, but I plan to release them with a seperate config file in the next update so you can have them on blufor, redfor, and independent. I made them independent now so you could set whether or not they were friendly to east or west.

Also, the PMC's used SCAR's in MGS4, would be good to see them in a future update........

Yeah, I would have loved to use Scars, but I'm sure you know the issue with Scuba's scars. Once Arrowhead is out we'll see an update. I'm very happy with the m4's that RobeterHammer made though. THey really fit with the units in my opinion, and if you look back at early beta screens of MGS4 the PMCs were using M4's back then as well. So just think of this release as the early beta of MGS4 :)

As for a non-weapon's pack version. I'll add one when I update with the multiple configuration files. Shouldn't be too hard, although you'll be missing out on these great new weapons.

I agree the weapons are great,the masterkey version is superb not to mention the M-14 EBR.Scars will be great but for now we don't have any.

Hey ardvarkdb,I was wondering if you plan make other MGS pmcs,like Pieuvre Armement or Raven Sword?

Even 1-2 models per pmc will be great,here's Pieuvre grunt type http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/File:SOUTHAMERICAVISTAMANSION_4-1.jpg and here's Raven Sword soldier http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/File:EASTERNEUROPEMIDTOWNNSECTOR.jpg
