    NLD Units

    Yea I tested it some more yesterday, there's no actual damage model. RHS doesn't play nice with vanilla or other modded units though because they have a way different damage model (pretty sure the RHS rpg7 needs like 5 shots to a vanilla apc). I found 2 APFSDS rounds from the Leopard made the crew atleast disembark (red wheels, engine and fuel) although the model is intact. So I guess it can be used for now as a scenery prop, or if you use it sparingly in the missions. Because NLD_Units is a mod that's thought up and made in a dutch clan called Lowlands Tactical (which I am a part of) there's some choices and items that had the clan in mind. The backpacks are just for a bit of fun, there's loads more then just hello kitty and minions xD Anyway I'll keep it in but will make a note of it in the mods known issues.

    I tested the Bushmaster for a bit, and as far as I can tell it has nothing gamebreaking. The damage model may be a bit wonky (wheels are almost indestructable). Got no errors while while loading the mod up or ingame in the editor. You are right in that it's an old mod and I was surprised it still worked the way it did hehe :). If you or anyone else finds anything major about it then I'll review it again for the next build. For now it seems okay and if anything can just be used as scenery in a mission. We didn't change anything config wise, just retextured. The original author can't be reached via steam or the BI forums so I am not allowed to change anything without his consent. Hope I've answered your questions ;). -Shifty

    NLD Units

    Lowlands Tactical is proud to present a new release of NLD Units bringing it to version 2020010417. NLD_Units, a mod that adds Dutch units to ArmA 3 in several delicious flavours! With over 30 units with 11 different camouflages accompanied by the necessary items and backpacks this mod adds over a massive 300 new classes to the game! To summarize what this mod adds: - Multiple infantry units coming with different camo's like: Woodland, Desert, NFP-Tan, NFP-Green, NFP-Arctic, NFP-Navy, UN-Woodland and UN-Desert. - Special Forces members now classified as Korps Commandotroepen (KCT) in Multicam, Marsof in M81 Woodland camo and Marsof Divers (Kikvorsmannen) in black uniforms with rebreathers and diving goggles. - Wheeled Vehicles coming in Woodland, Winter and Desert. - Armored Vehicles coming in Woodland and Desert. - Air Vehicles Armed & Unarmed. - Ships and boats of all sizes. - Support Vehicles with crew. The units for now are (with a lack of 3D artists) reskins of BIS Units based on what we could find about our armed forces. As some may have figured out, it's been a while since our last release. As of now I am the only one left to maintain this mod, and with some free time I managed to do a sizable update, but the releases won't be very often or very big anymore due to work and social stuff etc. It's also for this reason we feel the best way to ensure the mod stays in working order is for to make use of dependencies which was against our original goal. We are still open to suggestions and contributions in any way! 🙂 Download: You can download this release from: lowtac.nl/NLD_Units/@NLD_Units-2020010417.7z https://imgur.com/a/3XdGGCV Dependencies: - CBA_A3 - CUP_weapons - CUP_vehicles - CUP_units - Colt C7 - Firewills F16 + deps - Bushmaster v2020010417 - Added MB G280 CDI special forces jeep. - Added Bushmaster APC (added dependency). - Added dutch MQ9 Reaper uav. - Added Cups Leopard 2A6. - Added boats like the rhib, frisc, LCU's, minisubs and a frigate (zeven provinciën class). - Added a Panzerfaust 3 AT unit in most infantries (Using the Maaws mk1 mod). - Vector jeep new texture. - VW Amarok new texture. - Embedded mods that are allowed and don't get updated a lot anymore. - Reworked special forces, now having KCT units, Marsof and Frogmen (although they wear uniforms, they have increased swim speed). - Special Forces use Cups HK416 and HK417 now with compM4 + magnifier. - KCT and MARSOF have a heavy sniper using the M107. - Normal infantry use the PVS15 NV goggles now. - All the special forces use the apex nv/thermal goggles as to prevent clipping with the scopes mostly. - Autorifleman use the proper FN minimi now and ammo pouches. - Also added the old Diemaco's back in the data for backwards compatibility with old missions. - Korps Mariniers are their own thing now, much like the other normal infantry. - UAV Operators use the raven uav and backpack now. - Winter units changed to have NFP-Arctic (which is my own take on it as it's still being debated if we're gonna use it). - Boat crew have NFP-Navy uniforms (Which is confirmed to come, but no actual pictures yet, so again my own take). - Changed a lot of vests. - Changed the NFP green, tan and multitone again to be a bit more accurate to the current design. Notes: - This mod is made to run in ArmA3 vanilla, adding mods like ACE3 or other mods can change the experience and loadout of this mod (although it shouldn't matter). Known issues: Raven returns script error first time after exiting screen. Bushmaster has no visible damage model, but will atleast force disembarks after some good hits (this has to do with the age of the mod and the original author is unreachable) Credits: Textures : Shiftysean, Pek, Smootch & Outlaw28 config.cpp : Sacha Ligthert, Shiftysean & Smootch Models : Bohemia Interactive Uniforms : teriyaki (TRYK's Multi-Play Uniforms) Bushmaster: P1nGa 333 NH90 + EC635 : Aplion F16C : Firewill Colt C7: Leon M & Sovjet A lot of vehicles: CUP team

  6. Hey guys, So I was wondering if it's possible through configs to get my modded Moira to use the Marshalls 40mm ammo types? The idea simply being that it does some more damage. (So I don't mind it still stating it's a 30mm gun) and just use the moira's normal turret. Tried looking around, but I mostly see reactions to these topics from people saying how to do it in the init while in editor, and not so much the config. Thanks in advance! Edit: Got it fixed (yey). Used the ingame editor init to change it the way I wanted, then in the config used 'eventhandler init =' to copy the lines from ingame 👍

    Camo netting on retextured tank

    Thanks for the input, but no luck. Thought for sure I had it yesterday with the hiddenselection "CamoNet" and the associated hiddenselectionstextures .paa but it still reverts to the AAF tank skin.
  8. Hey there, So I'm trying to get a retextured Kuma and Moira to have the option in virtual arsenal to use the camo nettings. Whenever I add any netting or even change the setting that changes the type of camo (aaf, aaf desert, aaf green) it reverts back to it's basic AAF skin. The Kuma is already forced to spawn with the extra armor platings, so I tried adding it on that piece of code but no luck. I've looked around but can't really find any topics or answers about this. I'm betting it's a really easy fix, but for the life of me I can't figure it out. Thanks in advance! Edit: Got it working! For anyone in the future having this problem, you need to add class TextureSources { textures[]= { "\Filepath\Data\camo1texture.paa", "\Filepath\Data\camo2texture.paa", "A3\Armor_F\Data\camonet_NATO_Desert_CO.paa", (obv depending on type of color camo) "A3\Armor_F\Data\cage_sand_CO.paa", (same as above) }; }; Hope this helps for anyone else struggling 🙂

    NLD Units: OPFOR

    Lowlands Tactical is proud to present a new concept NLD Units: OPFOR. With NLD Units: OPFOR we like to bring OPFOR Units in the mix of conflicts where the Dutch were involved. Think about about places long forgotten or places stil being fought in. Places like, the Korean war, afghanistan, Iraq, yugoslavia, Mali, etc. In this version we will build further on the conflict over the MH17 airliner downing. We updated the existing russian factions and also have the ukrainian faction now as indfor. We have chosen 2 different groups to represent Ukraine. -95th Airmobile Division. -Border Guards. Upcoming releases will add more and more factions and varying conflicts to the table. The units for now are reskins of BIS units based on what we could find about that country armed forces. At the time of writing this mod is by no means finished or mirrors their armed forces very well. So please be patient and expect these changes in the future. We are open to suggestions and contributions in any way! :) This said, we are searching for a 3D modeler to create content for this mod. If you have any experience with modding weapons and vehicles for ArmA or would like to contribute, please contact me via PM. Download: You can download this release from: http://lowtac.nl/NLD_Units/@NLD_Units_OPFOR-201603213.7z http://imgur.com/a/R0YQW Dependencies: - CBA_A3 - CUP_Weapons Changelog v201603213 - added 2 new (ALiVE Compatible) factions with camo's (Ukraine 95th Airmobile Brigade and Border Guard) - added AA vehicles for russians - added more infantry types for russians - added Alive compatible groups for russians (motorized,mechanized, armor and air) - changed russian loadouts - fixed numerous bugs and config issues for existing russian vdv faction Factions: - nldo_ru_vdv_76 - nldo_ru_vdv_31 - nldo_ua_uaf_95 - nldo_ua_uaf_bg Notes: - This mod is made to run in ArmA3 vanilla, adding mods like ACE3 or other mods can change the experience and loadout of this mod, although it shouldn't be anything gamebreaking ;). - The uaf_95 and uaf_bg configs were made for a big part with help from the configGenerator2 https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/188794-configgenerator2/. Known issues: - The helmets give a series of errors in the .rpt-log. But this is one-time and doesn't affect actual gameplay.

    BLUFOR MBT-52 Kuma

    When I started out this video helped me out a lot. As Nightmare515 stated, if you depbo the vanilla arma 3 assets you have a .nohq, .smdi and sometimes .as all ready to go. Desaturate, color to alpha and this helps a lot to see where the lines are while you're working on the textures. I believe there's an advanced way of doing it when using stuff like Quixel suite (in tandem with photoshop) which allows for crazy details, although I'm not knowledgeable enough in that xD. Also I think Gimp was a better way of getting into it than photoshop (probably because photoshop can be a bit more advanced). I can give you a few pointers myself crabz, seeing as we'll be doing a joint op soon xD You know which TS to be :P

    It has come to our attention that for whatever reason, the armor values were not properly inherited on our vests and helmets. (and seeing as we have a big dutch joint operation with all the dutch milsim clans coming up in march) we felt this needed to be fixed asap. So here's an updated version of NLD_units bringing it to Version 201602228 You can download this release/update from: http://lowtac.nl/NLD_Units/@NLD_Units-201602228.7z Changelog V201602228 -Added armor values to vests and helmets Happy hunting! :D

    hehe well actually first off, spawning the medic truck automaticly gives that logo over any texture we apply. Also the new crystal as they call it is actually in use for all military medical vehicles atm as a 3rd way to identify medical vehicles. If you like more info on the matter, just look for "red crystal medical".
