    "Shine bright like a diamond". I like the APEX expansion overall, but why are the weapons so shiny/reflective...

    Unfortunately, Cryern and I have neglected the mod for awhile due to a variety of reasons. :( The good news is that I have been working on it recently. For example, I have already teased about our Tanoa camouflage here: https://www.reddit.com/r/arma/comments/4nysjm/wheres_pvt_waldo_tanoa_camouflage/ . Along with that, I got around retexturing the carrier_gl vest, and i have designed an effective pattern that will replace our usage of the CADPAT TW. To more bad news, I still have alot of work to do before the update. I have to redo every texture to utilize the new pattern, modify some of the color schemes (The Arma 3 visual upgrade mess things up), make the scaling more consistent throughout the uniform + equipment, and finish the Mx rifle retextures.

    The M320 LRR.408 Tropic is way too bright and needs to be fixed. If it doesn't get changed, then those snipers will have a bad day ;) I made an example: The right is what the tropic M320 currently looks like, to the left is my quick modification (all I did was lower the brightness of the texture). I hope this demonstrates how much the M320 tropic sticks out, and how easy it is to fix it.

    After switching from the apex sneak preview build to the latest development build. I noticed you guys changed the NATO jungle full-ghillie suit. To those who didn't notice, to the right is what it used to look like, on the left is the current version. http://imgur.com/2jChcZK Its now much darker and closer to overall lightness of the ground. I think most Arma players could live with this, but I would suggest reducing the amount of the dark purple like grey, and add in more green. That way it matches the grass and small foliage, rather than the dirt ground texture. For the heck of it, I made an example, the right is the current version, the left is my quick modification. http://imgur.com/umurXLQ BTW, the CSAT Jungle full ghillie suit is still super bright, just like how the NATO version used to be. Will this get changed as well?

    The MX rifles have a unrealistic super glossy finish, thus creating issues regarding concealment. This is a problem that has existed for awhile now, but it continues in apex under the khaki version of the MX rifle. http://imgur.com/a/82mjf

    Why are the new APEX ghillie suits so bright? http://imgur.com/a/jdal9 When compared to "Pvt. Waldo", they don't stand a chance, and he doesn't even have a ghillie suit on! https://www.reddit.com/r/arma/comments/4nysjm/wheres_pvt_waldo_tanoa_camouflage/

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    First of all, congrats on your mod(s). They are progressing quite nicely! Anyways, I noticed you guys added Top-down mode for the Javelin awhile back, but I can't figure how to switch to it. I tried looking for documentation online and found nothing. I was hoping someone on this thread could tell me how to switch modes. Thanks.

    Thank you for the compliment and suggestion. A urban camo is something we may look into for the future. Right now however, we don't see ourselves making a urban color scheme. Our 4 color variants cover both of A3's default maps and two popular A2 maps. So we have a nice range options out currently.So instead of releasing another color variant right now, we are going to focused on improving the quality of the mod. Things like removing the "shine" off of the knee pads, elbow pads, shoulder pockets, etc. and fixing any texture scale issues will help improve the quality of our mod. Btw, if you play on takistan or a map with takistan buildings, DTP should work fine as a urban camo ;)

    First of all, thanks for the suggestion. Now to address your question, we will not be making a blue variant. I say that because there is no practical function to it.

    Perhaps we will make a dariyah variant. Thanks for the suggestion/feedback.

    RedPhoenix was hoping to get a sample so he could use it on his Airsoft gun. We at TSG has some ambitious projects in the background, some of which are coming to realization. Without giving too much away, in one of our projects we are planing to retexture some special vehicles.

    TF47 Launchers [WIP]

    Cool addon. I first started reading up on the Carl Gustaf when I first used it in BFBC2. For some reason, it became my favorite rocket launcher. Anyways, does your mod include the latest version of the Carl Gustaf (aka M4)? http://www.saabgroup.com/Land/Weapon-Systems/support-weapons/Carl-Gustaf-M4/

    DLC Ads

    Ah, yeah I had this happen to me a few times. I don't really get the point why BI added that, but hey it's their game. So if they want to troll the players who do not have the DLC, then so be it. At least we know that BI has a sense of humor :p

    Which faction do you prefer to play as

    NATO or AAF For some reason there is something about CSAT that I don't exactly like. I can't put my finger on it though.

    Firing from vehicles using launchers?

    I had a similar discussion a few days ago with some friends. I was like "are we able fire launchers from helicopters such as the hummingbird?" everybody was like idk. We all giggled at the thought, since in RL you would just destroy the helicopter by doing that. Anyways, I don't know how realistic it is to fire a handheld rocket launcher out of a land vehicle. Sure, we see it in the movies sometimes, but does that actually happen outside of Hollywood? For me, I have yet to see a picture of a Jihadi or freedom fighter on a pickup truck with a rpg firing. I assume there is a reason for that...
