    Wachter's Attempts at Skinning

    There are a lot of people on a budget who won't buy GR, DS, and IT in one swoop. Ubisoft its still charging a premium for original GR and its expansion packs, in fact they charge the same as for Future Soldier, which is 11 years younger! Well, that figures. Soon, two decades old GR will be more expensive than Wildlands.

    Wow. Just... wow. I know, I'm late to the party (again), but this is an amazing achievement! Congratulations, Rocky and GR.net!

    Wachter's Attempts at Skinning

    Maybe do a simple SP & MP mod for GR alone, no DS or IT required. Would be especially nice for people new to GR who don't have the expansions, e.g. GOG still doesn't offer Desert Siege or Island Thunder.

    MAP file structure

    Any updates on this?
  5. Sorry. doesn't ring a bell. Thought I had seen just about any map ever created for GR, but never encountered that kitchen map you describe. Certainly sounds fun!

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Thanks, guys. Well, we'd need a seedbox to reliably provide HU as torrent, as I don't think there'd be enough people seeding after download. HU simply isn't mainstream enough. Good thing Rocky offers the GR Mod Collection on USB as a viable alternative for people with bad internet access.

    Nice work! Any plans on packaging this into a proper GR mod? Maybe at least as a new MP team? I mean... we could always use more mods.

    "Sharing is Caring" Mod Permissions

    OP updated. There doesn't seem to be a download entry for the Supersonic Bullet Crack mod, yet. Will have to see about that later.

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Thanks, mate. I know it's a lot of space. Will have to give the whole size thing some thought. With future feature expansion, retexturing etc. I have planned, this monster could easily double in size yet again. Some people with slow internet and data caps will probably have issues downloading, as it is.

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Just a little heads-up. Couldn't compress the download for HU 1.0 to under 10 GB. Sorry about that. It weighs in at 11,328,650,681 bytes, so depending on who you ask, it's between 10.55 GB and 11.33 GB. Installed size is just under 30 GB on my machine.

    Excellent post, Jack! Agreed.

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Jack, if I implemented all of the changes you suggest, there would be no need for your Cloak and Dagger add-on, and I wouldn't want to do that to you! But seriously, I very much appreciate your constructive criticism, and you make a couple of valid points, but please also keep in mind that HU is strictly aimed at maximizing hardcore tactical realism in every aspect of the game, and I'm not willing to deviate even an inch from that mission statement / philosophy for the sake of e.g. what plays (subjectively) better in PvP matches. That's were add-ons like Cloak and Dagger can come in, to balance certain gameplay aspects for a specific play style. That being said, of course there will always be room for improvements and (meticulous) feature expansion, e.g. alternative player skins and winter camos have been on my to-do list for a very long time, I just didn't get around to implementing them yet, and as the single player team in HU consists of hundreds of individual characters, this isn't going to be a trivial task.

    It's been a while since I last talked to Cocobolo or the other DTD guys, but I'm sure they'd be OK with any utilization of their work in future GR mods. BTW, as far as I know, even Eskwaad gave permission for others to use his character models. He certainly did so for HU, back in the day.

    HU Addon: Cloak-and-Dagger

    Just FYI, CaD 1.3.1 seems to work just fine with the next version of HU (v1.0).
  15. Thanks, folks. Please let me know if you run into any issues. Thanks.

    Wachter's Attempts at Skinning

    Looking VERY good, Jack! Very good, indeed! Any plans for a new mod release, soon?
  17. ApexMods

    Why?

    I want to also point out that any broken links for Mac mods are my personal fault! Dropbox completely wiped all of my downloads and I haven't gotten around to fixing them, yet. Sorry about that.
  18. ApexMods

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Many thanks for your encouraging words, guys. Glad you enjoy HU! Again, please don't expect too much of a change from b9. Mostly bug fixes and technical stuff. The lion share of work still lies ahead for future versions. PS: @Jose21Crisis, yes, the add-ons' sound issues are fixed.
  19. ApexMods

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Yep, very much looking forward to the non-beta times, Rocky. @Jack, something like that has been suggested now and again, but I'd really prefer to keep all of HU's content in one compact package. The add-on mods make up relatively little of the mod's total size, anyhow. The biggest part of the size increase is due to new file/folder structure, which has become a necessity because e.g. the previous structure made the mod hit the limit of what the game is able to load properly, resulting in a variety of glitches and serious errors (the cause of which was difficult to trace, initially). After some trial and error, I've found the culprit in the file/folder structure and re-organized it in a way that should not cause any more problems in the future. As an added bonus, the new structure allows for more modular modability, e.g. map re-texturing. Good times ahead!

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Errm... it looks like I'll be crossing 30 GB installed size with the new full (non-beta, yeah!) release of Heroes Unleashed 1.0. Next to a space consuming major restructuring of file and folder hierarchies, there'll also be quite a few 2K HD textures in the next version. I'll try to keep the download below 10 GB, but it's going to be a close call.
  21. The new wrapper for macOS 10.13 High Sierra is now available for download (I've updated the opening post with a new working download link). Sorry that it took a little longer than expected, but I also added a couple of new features to the wrapper that should make the longer wait worthwhile.
  22. Looking for people to cooperate on this. Please post here or PM me if interested. Ghost Recon Forever!
  23. Currently testing the next wrapper on 10.13 High Sierra. Looking good so far... Still some new stuff to implement. Will upload when ready. Should be in a couple of days.
  24. ApexMods

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    It‘s due to a typo, which will be taken care of in the full 1.0 release. Loads of fixes and essential restructuring coming, and at least a couple of new maps. Will be a big download (>8 GB) and install (>20 GB), but should be worth the disk space. Heck, some new titles with close-to-Zero replay value weigh in at hundreds of gigs nowadays, so...

    Oh, and the M14 DMR comes with either TS-30 series Leupold Mark 4 or Unertl M40 scope, IIRC, both featuring 10x magnification.
