    Hey guys, I have some bad news. I'm going to take a step back from working on this mod for several reasons, the main reason being intellectual property violations in general and people reuploading this mod. As a rule of thumb I don't discuss these issues and I'd appreciate it if people didn't make any guesses as to the details. I don't know when or if I'll return back to working on this mod. I may make some small updates to fix errors or issues. I'm truly sorry for the inconvenience. There's not a soul on this earth that's as torn up by this as much as me. I'm still going to work on the Nassau 1715 mod. Bit of good news I'm considering sharing my knowledge on 3d art with short tutorials, such as how to make stitches, research, normalize color/shade/brightness and how to extract texture references from photos. If there's anything in particular you'd like to know about how I do what I do please let me know.

    Happy New Years from the Nassau 1715 team! We want to take this opportunity to show you even though we've been quiet we're still working on the mod, specifically the English gally frigate of 20 guns. As you can imagine something like this is very, very complicate, probably the most complicated and complex vehicle for ArmA ever, and requires a lot of work.

    Hey guys, time for a new update! This update brings back the M5 Medical Bag and introduces the M1 helmet in a few different camouflages! Both pieces of equipment has been used by the US Army, Marines, Navy and Airforce for about half a century. This update also includes several different, non-functioning items. I've included an authentic angle head US GI flashlight...which being authentic means it sucks so we'll chalk it up under non-functioning too.

    It's relatively cheap where I'm at. I even once found the medic molle LBV vest, which is kind of like a unicorn. Guys, I made a new discord. The main purpose of this discord is to allow people to post unique and rare pictures related to my projects, specifically DHI, that I can use for reference. Photos from the 80s and 90s are kind of forgotten treasures that can help a lot with my projects. If you have any other suggestions that I can do with this discord let me know.https://discord.gg/ke6MswV

    Funny you should ask. Next updated will include the M5 Medical bag, which was used by the US military for about half a century. My Patrons have been able to follow the development of this bag and give feedback up to this point. The USM aren't as accurate. Those covers were a little too bright. When I made those I didn't have an actual PASGT with woodland cover. Yes, I have just about everything in my modification except for the M9 and M7 bayonet, IFAK, buttpack...uh...uh...yea, got the rest. I just might take a picture of all this junk for the fun of it. Benefits of living next to a military base 😉

    They look like normal woodland BDUs with shoulder lapels. I really can't add variants with small details like that, especially since I plan on adding a lot more gear and equipment. I will fix the Safariland holster. I forgot to hide the low profile vest.

    I can separate them...sort of. It won't be as easy as it sounds. I was lazy with making my LODs and used the merge function, so now on the other LODs the canteens and buttpacks are one, so I'll have to work on that.

    You're right a lot of soldiers didn't carry buttpacks often. I'm going to think about how to show this. Not sure about the M7 but I'll think about it. Do a lot of people know the difference between the M7 and M9?

    New DHI update released today includes PASGT flak jackets! I made the edited one too. I try not to add too much mud to my textures but this was a special case. They're too dark for a reason. It's hard to illustrate this but I try to match colors, shades and fades to real life as best as possible. I actually have this stuff. If you look at the character the helmet, which has a twill fabric cover, is next to the upper, back torso of the BDUs, which is ripstop fabric. Ripstop tends to fade faster than twill and the upper back tends to fade faster than the rest of the uniform because of sun light, salt from sweat, and the wear of gear. I'll admit it's odd, but it's completely realistic. If you compare it to the M65 jacket, which is a poplin fabric with an inner liner (not to mention field jackets aren't worn a lot), the colors and fades are more similar. I'm sure the flak jacket will raise some eye brows, but trust me it's 100% accurate.

    Hey Timberhawk, I'm glad you're enjoying sailing. Tacking into the wind is sort of simple. If you're sailing on your own you'll want to douse your tops'l if it's set (I'll get to the halliard in a second). If you're tacking into the wind you're probably sailing "Closed Haul", which means the wind is coming from either the front right or the front left of the sloop. Look at the bottom left of the Quick Sail Guide for a picture of the points of sail. First thing to do is fall off from the wind, putting the wind abeam, therefore increasing your speed in order to tack. When you're ready to tack turn the wheel all of the way to the side you want to tack. If you're fast enough before you turn the wheel you can lower the heads'ls at the bow so it's easier to turn into the wind. As you get close to irons haul the gaff sail amidship so it doesn't slow you down. You should have enough momentum to past through irons. Once you do just wait for the heads'ls to push the bow downwind. If you lowered your heads'l raise them again at the pin rails near the wheel once you pass irons. It's also a good idea to trim the gaff so the wind isn't pushing on the stern while the bow is turning down wind. Fall off the wind by putting the wind abeam and once you pick up speed again set your course for a new tack. See? Simple! Sailing ships act like a weather vane. The more sail towards the bow (the heads'ls), the more the bow will turn downwind. The more sail to the stern (the gaff) the more the bow will turn up wind. The tops'l halliard raises the tops'l yard, which is the horizontal pole that's holding the topsail. By default the yard is lowered and the tops'l clews (corners) are up. To set the topsail you have to both pull down the clews with the sheets and raise the tops'l with the halliard.

    Hey everyone, just wanted to let you all know we're still working on Nassau1715. Our current goal is to get the English galley frigate of 20 guns sailing. Currently fore and aft sails are functional! If you would like to help out, even if it's small, just drop me a pm.

    The M65s should appear more puffy than the normal BDU blouse, so there will be some clipping with certain gear. I've already had to slim down the jacket a lot so there's probably not much more I can do. Not sure what is up with the vest. I'll have to take a look at it.

    Yup, that's it! I completely forgot to add the pleats. I notice I forgot the draw string but I ignored it. The other side of the front zipper should be partially visible but it's so small it's hardly noticeable.
