Download (Requires FoW and IFA3): Steam Workshop Or Armaholic Old Version (Requires only IFA3): Steam Workshop Or Armaholic ^ Yes, earlier versions of this mod only required IFA3, however After some deep thinking, intense contemplation, I decided to no-longer support this version, and continue working on a new one where the uniforms fits FoW webbings instead of IFA3. This version will remain as a rather stable legacy version, incase anyone prefers the IFA3 webbings or any other reasons. the new version has more or less the same classnames so it should be backwards-compatible if one decides to switch Full Changelog: By the way, If anyone wants to somewhat help me out even more, (which will help me in a rather significant way) one can donate to me via paypal; send it to my paypal email adress firstname.lastname@example.org Or alternatively, you can support me on patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Brainfag/ -------------------------------more pics:
So I'm trying to make a mission for my community based in the Pacific during WW2 using FoW, IFA3, etc. specifically a defense mission based off this scene in The Pacific: One thing I'm really trying to capture from that scene and translate into Arma is that opening part of the battle when the Marines are all looking across the river trying to spot the Japanese who are just out of sight in the treeline and then all the Jap soldiers open fire all at once. However I haven't been able to get a good way to really simulate that intense initial opening fire where it almost feels like a wall of fire. I tried using the AI module from ACE in Zeus where you can tell them to suppress an area but that thing barely works (seems to be an issue of compatibility with one or more of the WW2 mods), with half or more of the AI firing in the complete wrong direction for no reason (even when they were pointed at it in the first place) and those that do fire at it are so wildly inaccurate that it's absolutely no threat. The next thing I was considering doing was using this: to record each soldier and some mortars one by one, with me putting the playback and activation in after each one so I could better sync them up but that'd be so incredibly time consuming and a pain in the ass that it'd much better if there was an alternative way that worked almost if not just as well. So if any of you have any suggestions, that'd be lovely.
