  1. Hey can someone walk me through how to export your faction and make a PBO? I've tried and failed repeatedly. I know this has undoubtedly been asked before but I can't find anything. Once you create it in the ORBAT, create the groups and export it then what? Where do I copy it to? What programs do I need? How do I compile it? How do I make it into an addon? What programs do I need etc.? If anyone can point me in the direction of a youtube tutorial or anything that would be great. Because I can't find anything past how to make a faction in the mod. I got that part down. So now what?

    Seriously thanks for the response guys. I wasn't in any way trying to shit on you guys or anything. You have all been outstanding since the beginning. I was just relaying some minor concerns that pop up when Patreon and modding are mixed. I honestly love the mod and how you guys approach working on the mod. And just clarification I meant "blow up" on Patreon in terms of you guys bringing in a lot of money very fast. It's very easy to say that it will only cover costs associated with development but what happens if the money coming in exceeds that several times over?

    So I'm all for you guys going to Patreon. And forgive me if you have addressed this already but here's my unsolicited advice and concerns. You might have to reconsider how you guys update the community regarding planned features and what the roadmap is. People will have more of a right to ask about specific plans when they are actually throwing money. Most games and mods that go to Patreon or early access that keep the good will of the community provide pretty detailed updates and roadmaps on what content is in the works. In the Skyrim modding scene for example there is a ton of drama around the multi-player mod and the team that makes it. They're on Patreon bringing in thousands of dollars a month and still shit on the community. Since the Patreon fundraising model when applied to modding doesn't work too well since it doesn't deincentivize the gaining Patrons without actually having to do anything. Since many of the people that pledge money will never cancel their pledge. No matter the rate of progress or what is done with the money since they will simply forget about it. For example you guys have every right as of now to be as blunt about how annoying the "when is X weapon/vehicle coming" and "are you going to make Y" questions as you want. But there is the potential for that to get old fast if you guys blow up on Patreon as I expect you will. The RHS model of allowing modders to make whatever they want at whatever pace loses its relevance when you're actually making money. Anyway just my two cents. I don't mean this in a negative way and I'm sure you've had these discussions. I just love this mod and want to see it continue to grow.

    Forgive me if this is something the mod cannot control, but is there any way to get the B1 and B2 AI to behave more like strategic bombers rather than CAS? My guess is that its an ARMA thing but it would be nice if the AI would fly bombers at higher altitudes rather than behave like an F-35 or A-10

    At various times in the army I have dummy corded: MILES gear, CCO to rifle, ACOG to rifle, canteens, map carriers, DAGR, compass, target list work sheet. Basically anything you signed for or anything that is mission critical.

    Congrats on the update! It all looks great. Really excited for all the love that the HIDF is getting. Are we gonna get a Tanoa themed OPFOR faction for them to fight?

    Any chance for a REDFOR version of the Rebels? Not making any chances to the units just a REDFOR version of the same faction. I'd like to do some joint US-Altian counter insurgency operations lol

    @keeway wanted to give you a heads up that RHS announced their next GREF update is going to include the VHS-2 bullpup. It has seen a lot use with Iraqi SOF and it would be awesome if you could equip some of your Iraqi units with it. IS has also used captured models. In my humble opinion I think you should go back to a more extensive use of the M16 by the Iraqi Army since the Regular Army seems to be more widely equipped with it and the PMU has AK variants. But that is ultimately your call.

    I would cast my vote for the smaller pixel camo pattern. Also when RHS releases its next update its supposed to have an FAL apparently. Have you considered replacing the AK variants used by the reservists with an FAL since its more similar to the G3 used by the Greeks IRL or are you gonna stick with the Russian equipment since the mod seems to be heavily influenced on the Cypriot National Guard? Either way I love the mod and this is the best revamped AAF mod there is. Hands down.

    Awesome! Thanks for the response! I hope the Project OPFOR people take advantage and equip some of their Iraqi Army units with it since some Iraqi IRL units use it. Love the mod and thank you.

    Feel free to remove this if you guys consider this a "will you make X" question. But based off what I've seen on ArtStation, is it fair to expect the VHS bullpup assault rifle posted by the designer here https://www.artstation.com/artwork/JAQaR to make an appearance in RHS? I'm only asking since he states its free for anyone to use and mentions RHS helping him import it to the ARMA engine.
  14. Can anyone link a detailed walk through on how to export a faction from the ORBAT creator? I've created a faction I want but I cannot figure out how to export/make a it into a PBO and all the information online is lacking in this regard.
  15. Has anyone created an all encompassing faction with all or multiple RHS Russian factions? I want to be able to use a faction that makes use of at least all of the MSV and TV units. I would do it myself but I have never used the ORBAT myself and can't find a walk through that will show me how to export a full faction properly. I know how to create/edit groups etc. but can't figure out how to export the faction. I understand it has something to do with creating a PBO file but that's about it.
