Life mods are generally frowned upon in the more purist arma community though, they detract from what arma actually is supposed to be, a sandbox shooter, a lot of life is just 9 year olds, stupid youtubers scraping the barrel and a lot of servers and life mods use stolen content.
one of these mods would be contextually better to use:
RHS CUP VSM gear pack Tryk's multiplay uniforms and not to sound egotistical but Identizee was made solely for the extra character customization options.
but i'm just being nitpicky, cause arma's my baby 'n' ###### sorry i'll go back into my cave now
I like to customize, but i think that's just myself as a modeller and an artist it's sort of a habit to make something and make it your own so to speak.
if it's like mass effect where i'm going to see the face i create in cutscenes I feel i do it more so, in games like Skyrim i care somewhat less as there's little facial focus in talk scenes and there's no actual cutscenes to care for as much, as it's all pretty much live in real time right in front of you
generally though i don't mind so long as there's at least some customization of gender available, call me a feminista, but if you're going to have customization of a no-name character of some sort you can't overlook one of the biggest things to customize in that character. looking at you, Arma 3...
if its ###### where you play as a specific and important person, in a canonical story line then it makes sense and i don't begrudge it.
