  1. Nice work, my man!


    wow, awsome work K !

    What does "Added XMedSys compatibility plugin (under optional folder)" mean ?


    Thanks! In the download you should have @Kae_SZ/addons, as well as @Kae_SZ/optional and @Kae_SZ/sound_variants. "kae_sz_infantry_xmed.pbo" gives all the soldiers a loadout of bandages and morphine instead of first aid kits, and medics and such get corresponding loadouts as well.

    Oh yeah! You are the man! Thank you very much for your work & time :)


    Everything looks awesome! But there is a slight problem with the USMC arms ( they seem to be slightly below the uniform cut ) so you can see that the arms are "empty", which is a bit creepy. Would be possible a hotfix on that?

    Another weird point is that the USMC have old weapons compared to the CDF. None of the USMC can have automatic fire ( neither M4 nor M16 ).

    All the rest is outstanding! It's really lovely to have a new faction to play with, specially with the awesome weapons port and new sounds :D

    Loving the new vehicle camos for the CDF, even the pixelated one :)

    What are the plans for that faction if I may ask? Vehicles? Weapons? Uniforms? ( the actual A2 one looks a bit low quality when looked in a close up, nothing too bad though ). If I may suggest the desert MARPAT :)

    Oops, I'll hotfix that ASAP. Uploading the hotfix now :)

    In regards to the weapons, afaik USMC and US army use the M4 and M16a4 IRL, at the moment, neither of which has full auto, and it also seems that doctrine calls for no change in that. I might be out-of-date on that information though, so let me know if that's the case.

    "That faction": You mean the USMC?

  2. Update 0.4.1!


    Google Drive

    The USMC.


    Figured I had a good enough bit of things that I did this week that it would be worthwhile to update the addon, I think the most noteworthy change is the expansion of the RDS tank compatibility to cover all his vehicles and to also include the westernized CDF.



    -Added new sounds for Ishapore, FN FAL, Scar-H

    -Added BMP-1, T-34, T-55, ZSU-23-1 Shilka to RDS compatibility plugin

    -Added BMP-2sz variant vehicle to the RDS compatibility plugin, with Ataka Missiles and a better engine

    -Added groups to the RDS compatibility plugin, which should make it usable with ALiVE

    -Added 2A42, Konkurs launcher, as vehicle weapons with sounds that are in-line with the rest of the addon, now present on the BMPs.

    -Added USMC faction, using M16a4, M4, HK416, and other goodies

    -Known Bug: USMC use RPG as placeholder, instead of SMAW

    -Added Field Medics, Field Doctors

    -Added XMedSys compatibility plugin (under optional folder)

    -Added ASDG compatibility plugin (under optional folder)

    -Added filters to South Zagorian Mi-24 hinds, and CDF Mi-24vp hinds.

    -Fixed overpenetration of infantry bullets (Thanks to Reyhard)

    -Fixed Isklaristani camo oversaturation

    -Fixed: Mi-24p Falanga and Shturm variants have reversed naming

    -Fixed: UN Tanks have wrong crew classname

    A BMP-1 of the modernized CDF army.


    Theres still some older bugs that I haven't fixed yet, but Enjoy anyways :D

  3. About the missile penetrations:

    Alright, between what Reyhard said and the way that the real armour mod links to this bug report, it seems that keeping them the way they currently are is the best approach.


    Unfortunately it would be too much for me to upload the mod twice like that, and since the language addon is something that doesn't get updated as much it saves me a lot of time to not have to upload it every time I update everything else, so uploading both versions would be a bit too much for me.

    I sent a request to upload it as a separate download in SiX, however. Hopefully that is also ok for you?


    Awesome work, can't wait to be able to release the next version with the FAL sound!

  4. @Reyhard

    The current one had some base off something which I don't remember and then increased for bullets which were supposedly greater in penetration; Thank you very much for your macro, I'll give them a try and test off something.

    Should I be using the same for the RPG-7? My current logic for those is leaving the caliber the same and setting hit = MM RHA penetration, at least for the AT variants.


    It's one of those many things which are "in progress" for me :)

    I guess I could make a sorta "simple HK416" which just uses the iron sight off the G3a3, probably won't have the pretty fire selector markings or it's unique stock though.

  5. SVD 5.45 from South Zagoria Modern penetrates about 50mm RHA. Is this done on purpose? It's like pocket PTRD right now :D

    Pocket PTRD lol :D

    What should I use as the relation between mm RHA and mm Steel plate to fix this?



    I did want to make slightly different uniforms as well for the Militia, otherwise seems good. Would need to have at least a light combat belt though, to store the mags in :)

  6. Hey Kaelis;

    There's few versions of G3. The longest ones (the basic G3A3 and G3A4) doesn't support any attachments, sadly - I had to use the shorter, railed versions.

    Also, totally btw, isn't the G3 a bit too thin? And could we get the long version of FN FAL?

    About that reload; I've meant the FN FAL (short)'s one. I think it would fit the G3 just as tacticool.

    Hey, I just checked out all the versions of the G3, HK33, and FAL that I have and all seem to be able to mount optics just fine, tried with vanilla MRCO (optic_mrco). Check out the Isklaristani Squad Leaders, each will have an optic on his G3a3. Assuming I didn't mess anything up, only the XM8 and the Ishapore will be unable to mount any optical attachments.

    It might be an issue that I have where some weapons don't show their optics in VAS properly, I'm not sure how to fix it but I assume it's because of some weirdness I did with the attachments so that foregrips and grenade launchers could be used.

    I wouldn't know about the G3's thinness, I haven't seen the version with the specific handguard I'm using IRL. What part in particular looks too thin? And about the FN FAL, you mean the version with a nonfolding buttstock, or just a longer version? I can do the second one by next update, the proper buttstock will take longer.

    Hello Kaelies' date='

    I would like to suggest to apply the Isklaristani camouflaged green/brown/blackish outfit for the Isklaristani desert types aswell; Save for the green obviously being replaced for Khaki/Sand-ish colour or something. That way you'll have a rather unique BDU-type camo for them. Plus it serves as some sort of consistency in the camouflage-department.

    As for the Mi-24 Hind and the addition of the exhaust-cover, I'd save them for both Russia and South Zagoria, maintaining that Chernarus is bound to buy western equipment anyways, due to an arms-deal struck with the USA. (effectively ensnaring them in debt, slightly decreasing their war-waging capability due to budget-cuts to fully repay the loan.) They perhaps may get their hands on AH-1 Cobra's, or ultimately perhaps even a downgraded Apache helicopter, which by now in real life, are deemed to slowly become over-aged, if not outdated technique to have. And even a small country like mine (the Netherlands) has AH-64 Apache's! And that whilst the USA currently focusses her attention on (expendable) drones over pilots risking their lives. Or atleast as far as I know anything about it.

    So I do assume Cherna eventually could have something like that. As for transport helo's for them Cherna's, I'd say please use M-60 Blackhawks. (I know, basically sort of making them appear with equipment from 1980's/1990's U.S. army, save for some local adaptations perhaps like how the current uniforms, and paintschemes appear to be, but still..)

    Speaking of helo's, why the Cherna's don't update their Mi-24's is because these are still in reserve in the Chernarussian army, but that army is slowly transforming to become a heavily westernized military, so Cherna-Hind flies until it dies, or otherwise be captured.

    Even whilst these are excellent helicopters on themselves, spare parts are becoming hard for Chernarus to come by, now that they're a U.S. ally. And buying spares from Russia is rather costly for them, where meanwhile SZ is discounted on the Russian arms market.

    For the rest I agree with the others here, excellent release yet again![/quote']

    I don't know, I kinda like the Khaki uniform being Isklaristani, it sorta reminds me of British troops in Africa and Isklaristan seems closer to than than Takistan does. Maybe a desert, camouflage Isklaristani uniform would be good, but I'd probably prefer to use one of the Iranian desert camouflages as opposed to a retexture of the current one.

    Well, more helicopters are probably a ways off, more due to them taking too long to implement, than to no country using them; Chernarus would certainly use things like the UH-60 Knighthawk, Cobra, Mi-17. Russia would probably also get the Mi-8 and Ka-52, while South Zagoria would grab the UH-1H huey for transport-specific roles and keep the hind as a transport for other purposes and just upgrade the Hind for its gunship. Takistan would probably stick with the Mi-17 and UH-1H in terms of helicopters. Isklaristan sounds like the kind to use the Huey, Cobra, Chinook, maybe the Mi-17.

    I think the CDF should definitely have them, as they are pretty common, and for a country with pro-west ideals I would expect they would of definitely of placed those of their helicopters as they increase the survivability of the helicopter a lot by reducing it's heat signature.

    Also for the Digital pattern, I would suggest maybe making it smaller, or at least on the UAZ, so that there is say one clearly defined "spot" of pixels to help break up the green, as some sides look nearly completely green with only part of a pixel on that location

    I'll try to move the camo around so more of the pixels hit areas where you can see them. How's it look?


    In regards to the Filters: I'm thinking maybe the VP would have them as its the most modern hind in CDF inventory, while the others lack them due to costs or something. Furthermore, I'm thinking maybe the non-VP variants of the hind will have been sold off or captured from the modernized CDF inventory, in favour of more western helicopters.

    ;2673129']Nice to see you´ve got along with ASDG jointrail... we users thank your effort for making our lives so easy now ;)

    BTW' date=' I haven´t found ammobox for the Isklaristani troops (I´ve found the troops [i']per se[/i] but no ammobox) could you include this on your to do list, pleeeeease? ;)

    keep up the great work!

    You might have noticed I'm lagging further and further on making proper ammobox changes, I'll try to get that sorted out soon ;)

  7. Good news everyone!


    I've found out I was being silly about the ASDG rails compatibility, and there is now a separate .pbo which offers compatibility for the NATO weapons to use them. Have a nice picture of an Isklaristani using one of FHQ's Acog scopes.


    Speaking of Isklaristan, here's a picture of their camo after some adjustment to make it less "atomic" :D (Nuka-cola is no longer offered at military vending machines)


    I've also done retextures of all the UAZs to properly match the new camos used for armour on each faction, and also added the digital camo for the modernized CDF forces; the modernized CDF forces will have everything the normal CDF do in a different camo in addition to any western vehicles added in the future.

    Here's a sample of the new digital Camouflage, I've had issues downloading RDS onto my laptop so I won't be able to show them off on the tanks, but hopefully the UAZ doesn't do too bad of a job showcasing it (I guess the pixels are a bit hard to see on the UAZ in particular):

    Left Side


    Right Side



    Final WIP Update for today, I've thrown on exhaust filters onto the Mi-24 hinds. Russia and South Zagoria will have them for sure, Takistan won't, but I'm not sure about the CDF; what do you all think?



    Last note to say: I've found another reason why the RPG's 2d sights are necessary; it would be impossible to have the sight adjust in 3d space if there is a scope on the RPG while leaving the sight as an attachment. Again, I'll try to de-pixelate the top corners so it doesn't look so bad :)

  8. Looks like that digital camo is some Ukrainian one, considering the western impression that digital camos give I think it would be a good match for the modern/western CDF troops. It would also allow me to use woodland on US units without fear of confusion :)

    Still got to test it out ingame and see how it looks though.

    The rest of the CDF will continue with the current camo.

  9. @MistyRonin

    Make sure you have the kae_sz_vehicles_rds_compat.pbo enabled, and note that the vehicles made compatible are completely new so as not to mess up any of the RDS stuff. The CDF camo is in the top-left corner of the six-screenshot collage I have for the update post, for reference; its like OD green, but more of a yellow tone to match their camo.

    I'm afraid the order of sights is too much of a preference thing to adjust it, I prefer iron sight first so there isn't a zoom when you first sight in (more natural to me).


    What do you mean by railed versions? If you mean purely a top rail, try putting an A3 scope on and it should automatically add the rail, for all G3/FAL/m16 type rifles.

    If you mean a railed handguard, please send a screenshot of what you mean and ill consider how difficult it would be to add. However, handguard (side) rails would be useless as my weapons can't support those types of attachments (for a few various reasons).

    By FAL reload, you mean the AK style ones? If so sure, though both FAL and G3 will get custom anims at some point.


    See above about the railed guns :)

    Both the GP-25 and grip "attachments" are internal items used to actually display the item without having an obscene amount of different models. Neither should actually be usable by the user, but I don't quite know how to prevent it without making them unusable.

    I'll give ADSG a shot tonight.


    Looks easy enoug, I'll give it a shot as maybe the vehicle camo of the modernized CDF forces.

  10. @ESUSSanchez

    Ah whoops, I forgot to do the stuff neccessary to make that work properly on my end. In the meantime, are you able to get UAZs to spawn properly? If so then I know what to do by next time.



    In regards to the Falangas still being seen, that's a known bug and basically the reason I made shturm versions for the Taki's. It's on my life of things to fix.

    The default RPG sight is indeed supposed to be like that, in a similar way to how I have the GP-25 working; basically I have difficulty aligning the sight if I rotate the thing in 3d space, so switching to an OFP-style 2d sight makes things easier and less problematic; I can look into smoothing out the edges on the top, though.

    Hopefully that isn't much of a problem? I'll probably be doing the other grenade launchers and rocket launchers in the same way for the same reasons.

    The Isklaristani woodland camouflage is meant to be based off the IRIA woodland camo of Iran, though it seems it was made for lands more saturated than Arma's. I'll tone it down for next time, but maybe the desert version can be of use?

    Finally, regarding the CDF vehicle camo: I should've done something more like the CDF armour camo I made, I guess that was something else I forgot to set up. Can't do the one you showed me since if you take a look, that camo has been taken by South Zagoria :p

  11. Hey Serjames,

    The compat config I have is basically trying to do the same thing as the one Reyhard made but it goes about it differently, including custom camouflages that I made. The classnames are completely different so its like two completely different mods, no conflict except having too many variants show up in the editor :p

    You'd need to keep Reyhard's compatibility one to keep using missions made with his tanks, especially considering I've only covered the BMP-2 and T-72 with my own (Didn't have time for the others)

    Hope that helps,


  12. @Foxhound and Sonsalt6


    ;2672328']Hey Kaelis' date=' nice to see further update on your units! Just loved the Mp5 and "big brotherss" (Hk53 and G3) with rotating iron sights... just wanted to ask for ASDG joint rails suport for them and the western weapons (M4, SCAr etc) cus FHQ and RH scopes would be a great addition to them...

    If the Mi-24 missiles doesn´t have lock-on how should we guide them? With LOS like the BMP AT missile or is there a laser designator sistem now? (couldn´t find in action menu)


    Mi-24 missiles are SACLOS like the konkurs and metis rounds or the TOW, i.e. like on the BMP or like it was in ArmA 2 ACE. There is a little bit of offset from the impact and aiming point if the missile is fired too far off center from the direction the Mi-24 is facing, so you'll need to compensate for that or stick to targets in front of the helicopter.

    As far as I'm aware, and I could be completely wrong, since I have my western guns inherit off something other than the base BIS classes, I can't get them to automatically use the same set of attachments; I'll look into it in case theres some simple solution that I missed. However, I'd be happy to do compatibility for any scopes you might want to suggest, I guess starting with FHQ and RH. Could you give me a link to the RH accesories pack, as I wasn't aware that he had one?

    Enjoy :D

    I'll update the front page and classnames and whatnot later, too much of a hurry to do that now. Also, I missed doing a few things I wanted to, especially several requests, so I'm very sorry about that...

    Edit 1: Forgot a few things in the changelog

  14. Hey,

    @Kju, Reyhard

    Thanks for the heads-up, I assume then that the textures you used for your BMP were from the link that .kju posted? I've been trying with the ACR ones I had from installing the expansion itself and that didn't work, might be why I've had issues. Will give it a shot this weekend.


    well, I ported bmp1 from acr dlc and I didn't ecounterd any problems with texture editing. Regarding bmp take a look how I configured it in my addon. Moi and damperinair needs to be very low

    Thanks for the suggestion, though I tried last night with just those changes and it didn't work, maybe I missed something else. I'll take a look at how you did it when I can download everything over the weekend; haven't been keeping up with others' mods recently :rolleyes:

    By the way, thanks for making a compatibility configuration for your addon to use my units!



    The compatibility addon isn't written by me so I'm afraid I cannot help. However, I think it may be that there are no predefined groups that actually use the new units, which ALiVE requires to have them automatically spawn, and ALiVE also has some very specific conditions for naming everything, which is the problem I'm having with my UAZs not working either.


    sorry if this has been covered already, but I'm having serious problems with this mod. somehow, for some reason, this mod makes it so that I can't hear other players firing unless it's a specific firemode. for example, I can't hear single fire on any MX rifles, but I can hear full auto. I can't hear burst on RH's M4 pack but I can hear semi and full etc. I managed to fix this about a month ago by completely removing the mod and deleting all my configs then reinstalling the mod, but now it broke itself again without me actually changing anything and I can't get it to work this time.

    I really have no clue as to how my addon would do anything to affect this, since I don't think I have anything that changes any of the default values. I just inherit off some base BIS classes and then make my own stuff that's separate. I can only suggest the following to try and get it to work again:

    1) Check if its my mod by not loading its modfolder at all

    2) Find the "Kae_SZ_Weapons_snds.pbo" and "kae_sz_air_snds_new.pbo", as well as the similarly named .bisigns and remove them from the modfolder; this should remove the sound part of the addon, and would help me to know if its one of those two causing the issue

    Sorry that I can't be of much more assistance, but let me know if either of those two helps to fix your issue.


    It seems I have some thinking to do on where I want to go now, but in the meantime I hope you all enjoy the update which I'll probably be uploading Sunday :)

  15. Hey,

    So, in regards to the recoil:

    I just looked up a few AK-74 videos of it being fired in full-auto, seems like there's very little recoil, so I get the feeling that my values aren't too far off from the real thing. Keep in mind that the AK-74 not only has a very small amount of recoil due to it's round but also has a muzzle brake, which also has a few holes strategically placed to recoil muzzle rise. If you want to point out a specific gun which has too little recoil, please let me know and I might take a look at it and any videos I find; any gun with a bipod on it will also have less recoil when prone than others.

    I did however put some more backwards recoil per request, maybe see if you like it after this next update...

    In regards to Czech army DLC:

    Yea, BIS released the models, but not the textures. None of the tools I've tried allow me to de-pbo the DLC textures and then use them, and I can't do textures myself (if anyone remembers the SVD which was my first ever mod...). Unfortunately, I don't think there's any way for me to use those things in this addon.

    In regards to NV:

    I found a way to change the colour, but it requires a scripted approach. I'm trying to stay away from a CBA requirement for as long as I can get by with, so custom NV is going to be pushed onto the stack of things I'll be doing when start adding scripts to the addon.

    In regards to the BMP:

    So, I have some bad news on this topic. I've been trying what I can and looking at various resources, but I cannot get the vehicle to properly move faster than 10 km/h. Chances are, it won't be finished soon enough for me to include it in this weekend's release.

    If anyone would care to take a look at my config and tell me I made an error somewhere, here's my config:

    Some other Misc. Stuff:

    To start off, let me just note that the Lee-Enfield is going to have a bolting sound; an awesome bolting sound, at that! Hopefully it and the other awesome weapon sounds can make up for me missing the BMP.

    I've also made the bipods on various rifles attachments (so far the AK's are finished, shouldn't be too hard to do the rest), so its possible to do stuff like take off the bipod on an RPK and put it on your AKM, but the effect is only cosmetic for now. It'll also be possible to have both open and closed variants and switch between them; I'll see if I can't do something special with that by the weekends ;)

    The HK33, HK53, MP5, and a longer version of the HK33 will be included, in the a2 (fixed) and a3 (collapsible) stock variants. Might have time to do the G3 as well, and each will have a rotating drum with four sight pictures, being an open one, and three aperture sights. MP5 is zeroed for 25 on all of them, while the others are zeroed at 100-400m. The Elite Takistani troops will be using some of these, as well as them being the primary firearm of the Isklaristani troops; unfortunately, those troops aren't ready for this weekend.

    Hopefully, I'll be able to put in some improvements on the hinds as well as the adding the m320/m230/EGLM and adding zeroing to the RPG-7, but the BMPs have pushed me off-schedule.

    Finally, if I haven't mentioned it already, I'll be adding field medics (platoon-level) and field doctors to the current medical staff, who will at first just be armed more lightly; however, I will also be adding a compatibility .pbo for xmedsys which will give them more reasonable supplies fit for their roles.

  16. I'll consider putting the language addon into the optional folder of the main addon with the next release, I'll need to get some feedback then regarding whether its too big of a download though.

    Regarding weapons like the D30, well, I've still got a good bit to go until I start adding static weapons with all these vehicles everyone wants hm? :rolleyes:


    Yea, the scopes got bugged on the RPG when I tried to make them work with Suddens' scopes, at the moment I'm just using it as a placeholder until I can take the effort to make a proper PGO optic for the RPG. Thanks for the praise on the iron sights by the way :)


    I don't really see any way that the addon would specifically cause speed of sound to stop working, maybe some of my sounds are incompatible with a script in it or something? The sounds added by this mod are all in seperate .pbos, so maybe have him try moving those out of the folder? Also of course try to make sure it is indeed this mod causing it by trying without it .

    Also, great to hear that you got it working successfully with ALiVE, I wish the SZ-Royal Marine alliance (if I understood right) manages to fight off those Takistanis :D

    Regarding the CDF supplies:

    To me it makes most sense that they are strongly supported by the US, given that the US went as far as to invade on their behalf during Harvest Red. The sorta alternate timeline I've been going with in my head recently, in a brief form, has the US crush most of the ChDKZ, pull out, give the CDF equipment and tell them to finish the job, then the survivors of the ChDKZ reform into the South Zagorians and with monetary and equipment support from Russia, fight off the CDF and manage to regain a strong foothold in the region. Naturally, the US would probably not only have to leave some of their supplies behind if their going home was rushed (maybe it was to say, prevent a Russian invasion of the region?), but would also probably try to help out the CDF stay stable in the region.

    Regarding the non-US things, well, I imagine that war is a huge profit-making business for companies that make military arms, so any sensible company producing such would give out free samples in the hopes that the CDF will end up buying from them in the future.

    Finally, I know that Kuwait, Iraq, and Egypt all use the M1a1, albeit in a downgraded form, so I really see no reason why the CDF wouldn't end up getting stocks of it from the US as well.

    Regarding other miscellaneous things:

    I hope to have my next update out about the 19th, +/- a week. In addition to the BMP, I should have the Isklaristani weapons, maybe Isklaristani troops, elite Takistani troops, and maybe some other things added. Dreams include adding an ACOG and a CCO as well, but who knows. If you have any suggestions for mods which add NATO scopes, which I might add to the addon, please let me know so I might make a compatibility addon; provided they work fine with BIS weapons, shouldn't be a problem to add them to my own.

    I'm going to also add in more specialized medical troops such as the Field Medic (Meant as a platoon-level medical entity, less armed and more supplied than the normal medic) and the Field Doctor (With different supplies). Of course, with the standard Arma medical system it won't have much meaning, but I will be doing an xmed compatibility .pbo as well.

    One question I would like to have answered: The NVGoggles/NVScopes and the like are green due to an extra filter, correct? Due to something like the human eye differentiating those colours better? I was considering, if that is the case, to create some custom NVGoggles including arma-2 style ones and also a special set without that particular filter, mostly as a matter of personal preference. If anyone could show me any documents regarding russian night vision goggles/optics, aside from the NSPU, I would appreciate it.

    Also, still looking for some feedback on the GP-25 and whatever the GL on the XM8 is!

  17. So, I think I know now what the issue regarding UAZs not spawning properly with ALiVE is, but I haven't gone ahead and fixed it yet. I'm not sure whether it will be appropriate to create an optional configuration file for that or not though.

    Also, I have a fix regarding the GP-25, should be able to pick it up without issue; however, it is consequently possible to remove the GP-25 by hand, this isn't intentional and you can't move it between weapons. Just causes the GP-25 to either show up or not on a weapon, doesn't do anything about the way you hold it or the ability to use it. I also fixed the fact that it looks like its not made out of metal, that was a rather silly mistake :rolleyes:

    And yea, the addon is set in about 2013 for the "Modern" units, 2009ish for the others. I'm sure someone could make an addon giving the AAF

    Anyone have any small bugs or requests, especially in regards to weapons? Those are generally easy to fix so I work on those most often.

    In regards to transport aircraft, and using others' work in this addon:

    Again, I don't have too many plans for aircraft yet, but I agree that something with a heavier transport capacity than the 8-man hind could be useful; I did have plans for the Huey at some point which would also work as a lighter transport aircraft perhaps more similar in role to the little bird as compared to the Hind. Mi-8, various cargo airplanes and other helicopters, I don't really have much of a plan for them but I could eventually see about adding them; I sorta have a cautious approach to using others' content in my own addon, since I do want to be sure that everything in the addon has about the same feel to it.

    That being said, if anyone reading this is an addonmaker and would like to volunteer something for me to use, and would be ok with me either asking for certain changes or with me changing things, please let me know; I know there's a lot of great addons out there for things which I wouldn't be able to make but would still like to use in the addon.

    In regards to the XM8:

    The current state is that there are two variants of XM-8, both are the longest variant existing with a dual-mode sight which has both 1x and 3x zoom, meaning they can work well in a lot of various situations. The only difference is that one is the normal variant with a 30-round magazine, and the other is the SAW version modeled with a Beta-C. In terms of a marksman's version, I assume the only different would be a bigger zoom? What would be appropriate for that? Finally, are there any other variants that would be good to have?

    In regards to other GL's on weapons:

    I can work on adding the M203 and EGLM (Scar version) to the addon. I noticed the XM-8 from Arma 2 also has some GL on it, could someone please identify which one it is? Looks like a m320 at first glance but I want to be sure. Also, are these three launchers interchangeable between all NATO weapons, or are there specific limitations to which weapons can use which launchers? Finally, I could use some feedback on the way I've set up the GP-25; Is there any issue with it? Otherwise I'd be using the same thing for the new launchers.

    In regards to Takistan:

    I really don't have any intent for Takistan's army to be that desolate, but without doubt it is the least well-armed nation in the bunch so far. I should have an elite troop using mostly DPM (By the way, I looked it up and it looks a lot closer to a recolour of Rex Kamysh than DPM) gear in the next update, and SpecOps will come sometime afterwards. Elite TK forces will end up using a the AK-74 series with some G3/HK33s mixed in (probably from the Isklaristani Forces).

    In regards to vehicles in general:

    I'm afraid progress is going sorta slow, so far its just the BMP-2 that I have partially ported. I won't be updating this weekend so there might be time for me to throw in something else, but I'm afraid I cannot promise it.

    How I imagine their split per faction:

    CDF: Older Russian equipment. (T-72, BMP-2, BMP-1?, BTR-60, BRDM, UAZ, Ural)

    M-CDF: Mostly older Western equipment. (M1 abrams, BMP-2, BTR-60, M113, Humvee, Truck)

    Russia: Russian equipment, somewhat contemporary (T-90, T-72, BMP-3?, BMP-2, BTR-80?, BRDM?, Vodnik, UAZ, Kamaz)

    Takistan: Old Russian equipment, moreso than CDF. (T-72, T-55, BMP-1, BTR-60, BTR-40, BRDM, UAZ, Ural)

    South Zagoria; Modified Russian equipment (T-72sz, BMP-2sz, BMP-2, BTR-70sz?/80sz?, Vodnik, UAZ, Kamaz)

    Really can't say what's going to end up happening until I've made everything though, and it will probably be a slow progress :x

    In regards to the South Zagorian modifications specifically:

    T-72 will be more like the T-80u, having the armour skirts on the turret, reactive armour, and maybe other fancy things.

    BMP-2sz has at minimum a commander's MG added, might do things such as armour skirts, reactive armour on the front (yes, even though its a transport), Ataka-V instead of konkurs, etc.

    The BTRs would have things like a BMP-2sz turret being used instead of the standard one.

    Some of the fancy Ural-mounted stuff like the BM-21 Grad would be mounted on a Kamaz instead.

  18. 18th Gvardeyskaya Motostrelki




    18GMR is a small, friendly realism unit. We have been around since the good ol' days of Arma 2 and have recently switched to Arma 3. Most of the members in the unit have been playing the Arma games for a very long time! We play with a small selection of mods, including TFAR, TMR, and Army of South Zagoria, that are all quick-and-easy to setup but still provide a good amount of content and realism to the game.


    What we offer:

    • Uniqueness - We are one of the few units that don't play as BLUFOR. This lets us play with assets and tactics that are commonly unused by players.
    • Fun - We value fun over roleplay. We do not address people by rank, or maintain strict SOPs for our members. Having a good time is always our priority! Not to mention we have some sick banter.
    • Gameplay - We run an event each Saturday whilst maintaining a 24/7 public server.

    We just need you to be:

    • Willing to attend
    • Serious when the situation calls for it (Although we do like to have a laugh)
    • Able to get the mods
    • English speaking with a mic
    • Mature! (No hard age limit!)


    Please visit our website here for more information and a recruitment form. Feel free to hop on our TS3 and have a chat with us! (

    You can see the roles that are open on the "Battle Order" page. You do not have to know how to work in any of the roles (except scout), as you will receive training.

    If you aren't sure about joining feel free to hop on our server at any time and play with us. See the website for details!

    Nice little video courtesy of Valax:

  19. I've started the process on a BMP-2, but I might be a bit slow on delivering it! Be sure that I'll have at least the main and the Medical versions, and I will probably have a few extra versions specific to the South Zagorians, whose engineers feel there is no problem in say, lifting a DShKM off a t-72 and translating it onto a BMP.

    I did have thoughts about vehicles past that, but they might not happen soon.


    Not sure what you mean by "air", considering there are already Hinds in the addon; if you mean planes then no, no plans for them yet (unless you count "hmm...someday I might want to add this" :p).


    One last thing, please feel free to post any bug reports you might find here, and I'll try to get them fixed in the next update. I've already got things like the m249's ejection fixed, and I know how to and will fix the rocket pods on the hind. Finally, this next update might take a little longer to do since I'll be trying to fit the BMP in there as well as taking more time to work on other things; we'll see how it goes :D

  20. @kaelis you have a issue with the m249 the spent cartridges are not thrown out of that "hole" in the upper reciever, they are thrown out directly over the magazin on the right side

    the linked belt is thrown out on the position your cartridges are thrown out now.

    you can see what i mean on the videos:


    Good eye! I didn't know that, so thanks for the heads-up; it should be fixed next update. Let me know if you find any other bugs like that ;)

    Thanks a lot for the ARMA2 times units. It's a candy that we can fly mi-24 in arma3. By the way, I've found that the pipper is not centered on the head up display.

    You're welcome! Do you mean the not centered left/right or not centered up/down? I've found that the extra line on the reticle, below the center, is a good starting point for aiming with for most distances.

    A couple of suggestions if I may:

    *This release's UAZ-469 is véry vulnerable to riflefire' date=' shooting a full magazine at it makes it explode already. I know it isn't an armored vehicle, but even for a car it is quickly set ablaze that way?

    *Is it possible for the old 2009 SZ units to receive (masked) Takistani helmets for standard? Doing so makes them appear different, and a bit more dated then the correct appearance of the modernized SZ units. Atleast to my opinion.. It also makes them look kind of like the Chernarussian Red Army units that Relikki made way back in the Arma 2 period.. And those were also based on the ChDKZ/Chedaki. So possibly it may become a historic reference to Relikki's work, as that work later on also went up in use within Project:CDF for A2.

    *Is the Ishapor/Lee-Enfield rifle meant to be like a pea-shooter? I thought that a single round of such to the head would instantly kill an opponent? Are we talking .33 caliber here, (7.62x39)? For the rest it's a nice addition.

    *Maybe it's an idea to retexture the small-backpack and waterbottle-holder as black as the modern SZ vest is? Right now it seems to stand out a bit.

    *And perhaps it's an idea to rename this project into: Project: Green Sea Region aka P:GSR? (named after P:CDF/GSEP from Arma2 period; Since most of the A2 armaverse 'Green Sea' region's armies/units seem to be put into it.) Such name possibly may attract the topic more attention. Anyways, well done work on the units so far.. Got noting more to add for now.. Maybe later on.[/quote']

    Hello Rovka!

    I've fixed the UAZ, it wasn't that I made the UAZ weaker, but rather that I made most of the rounds stronger. What I'll be doing with the next update is setting the damage tolerance of the vehicle itself to be very high, so that it will almost never explode (I guess unless you drop a bomb or two on it), but the wheels, windows, and other parts can be disabled as you would expect them to; that seems to be more realistic compared to simply exploding when enough damage has been done to the car. I plan to include this for all vehicles I'll be doing in the future, including armour, so if its a bad idea someone please stop me now :)

    In regards to the UAZ, I've also changed a few parameters to stop it from sliding around too much, and I think it's done something with the braking at high speeds; from the max 120 km/h to zero it seems to stop about as fast as I would expect it to.

    I'm afraid I probably won't be doing metal helmets for the SZ units, even the older ones, but I may consider them for the militia or something. One other possibility, which I can't say that I will do, is maybe setting up a part of the military that isn't as well-equipped in the old versions, which might still use that helmet; can't say for sure.

    The Ishapore isn't meant to be a pea-shooter at all, and I haven't experienced the problems you've had with it; using standard M80 ammo I was able to one-shot to the head at both close range, and at about 100-200m, on the armoured CDF units; using DM111 allowed me to kill them even more. Make sure there isn't any conflicting addon or difficulty setting and let me know what you're shooting at if its still problematic.

    I don't think I'd do a black colouring of the equipment, but a darker green might be called for; I'll look into it eventually.

    I do intend to keep the current name though, South Zagoria is still at the heart of the addon despite the new additions!

    Question: I play with MCC and I notice that the AI units with the factions in this mod (particularly rifleman) are always firing on full automatic. Is this intended?


    It is indeed intended that riflemen and machinegunners fire at full-auto, especially the South Zagorian units whose doctrine calls for it; I would imagine that the same holds true for the CDF and Takistan, and even the Westernized CDF forces still hold on to the idea that full auto is generally more effective. Finally my understanding is that Russian doctrine teaches that one should have their gun on full-auto and fire in controlled bursts, which is what I've tried to recreated in the addon. I do believe that the units should have a limited burst when they're firing instead of dumping the whole mag though, so let me know if that isn't the case.

    When I add the US and perhaps other nations, I will be sure to have the a.i. use single-shot fire. Finally, if the Marksmen using the Mk12 or the SVD are firing in full-auto...well, let me know, since that is obviously wrong :p

    First of all, say how I enjoy this mod.

    Second, the AA soldier in CDF ( modern ) doesn't have ammo for the AK.

    Hey, thanks for letting me know. That bug slipped past me, the AA soldier should have had an M16 the same as the AT soldier. It's fixed for the next update.


    In addition to the bug fixes and changes I've just said I've done, the next update will have more unique sounds for the various weapons, and LAxemann has already delivered awesomeness for the m16, m249, and m240!

    I've also been working on a variant of the reload for the AK which is more "in your face", after looking at what made the m16's reload so "fun" to use (imo). It's still the same right-handed reload, just I've repositioned the gun so that you can see what you're doing if you look down; and you can alternatively keep looking straight ahead and still keep an eye on your target if you prefer. Here's a preview of what it looks like in first-person:

    Grabbing the magazine

    Pulling back the bolt (1)

    Pulling back the bolt (2)

    The first new one that I make will probably be either for the FAL or the PKM.

  21. And are all the units ALiVE compatible ?


    They really should be, except the UAZs. Please, give it a try and let me know how it goes, I feel like you're asking me because you're trying and it isn't working. I really have no clue whats wrong with the config for the UAZs in terms of getting them spawned, so I need someone's help with that...

    @Foxhound, @Sonsalt6

    Awesome, thanks for the continued support and updates!


    Thanks for the compliments and especially for the help with sounds! I'll be sure to let you know via PM when I have new ideas :)
