ACU Mod almost ready.

Recommended Posts

I hate to admit about this, but the best thing about this mod compared to others, is that it comes with its own installer.

PC-ILLETERATES like me can never understood simple "extract-mod-folder-to-your-local-folder" instructions. :stupid:

:lol::lol::lol:

Looking forward into checking it out----sometimes.

Played it in-game. Looks great. Some reason, tho, even on high character model textures it looks lower quality than the screens. Regardless, it's damn good. GJ

hardware problem or do you need to reinstall?

I'm running my game tweeked, with character textures set on 'high' in renderer_settings.xml maybe thats why?

only on a server without Anti Cheat, once the AC bug is fixed on MP, it will be very hard to find a server that does not have AC, this is because alot of people tend to exploit/cheat the modibility of MP... But hopefully there will be a better modding system with AC so that mods will be able to be used in junction to AC on MP... :grin1:

I just want to thank you for the brilliant mod. Excellent work. I have one small gripe: The helecopter gunners are apparently Marines now. I can belive those tankers being Marines in that one mission, but Army units like the 160th SOAR are famous for flying support for Army special forces. I would expect them to be wearing ACU as well. Oh yeah, and the Striker driver should be Army as well.

However I imagine that all those friendly troops in the game use the same model/texture and there is probably no way to differentiate them. oh well.

Besides in the origional we had a camo that I doubt any US troops would be using in the future, and at least with your mod it gets the Marines perfectly.

Over all though, suburb job! :yes:

if the client and the server have the same mod, it runs fine in MP - or, atleast it should.

Yeah, the way that the game is set up is that all the vehicles are operated by Marines, not Army. I don't like it either, since the Marines don't use Blackhawks and Strykers, and for that matter, do they even drive M1A1's?

What I can do, however, is look into the vehicle xml files and see if I can place army characters in the vehicles, rather than Marines.

Marines do, in fact use M1A1s.... or maybe even M1A2s. I don't remember which, but let me assure you, I did see quite a few Abrams when I was at 29 palms a couple years ago.

Which is exactly why I gave the Marines desert MARPAT. :)

eyy scuba. The ACU mod looks great...sometimes I can't find the ghosts, minus that damn diamond of course...haha

I wanna see how the black weapons would look as well. ACU weapons are cool and all, but it would be nice to switch here and there.

I wanna try out your MEX-Digi cam too!!

There most definately are USMC tanks. One of my buddies who's going into the USMC with me has a contract for tank crewman. Trust me, they use the same tank because remember, USMC= air LAND and sea. The US military doesn't have any other true battle tanks other than the Abrams. Marines got M1A1/A2s.

Reminds me of a story. Recruiter's brother was in Desert Storm as a Marine tank crewman. Army is supposed to go straight on into the Iraqi tanks full force, while the smaller marine tank force flanks. The Army is not supposed to advance past a certain point or theyll be in the marines' line of fire, but they get all gung ho and say "###### YEAH, PUNCH IT!" and speed on shooting stuff. Soon they start getting hit in the dark from huge distances by the marines who dont knoiw theyre shooting them. The army guys start yelling into radios "HOLY ###### THEYRE POURING IT ON US! MARINES, BLAST EM!" so the marines start shoving shells out as fast as they can. Army: "OH MY GOD THEYRE FREAKIN ANNHILATING US! MARINES SHOOT MORE SHOOT MORE!!!". Marines: "Oh damn, theyre in trouble SHOOT FASTER!". This goes on for a while, until some officer suddenly goes "Hmm...wait a minute." and orders cease fire. So they stop and the army suddenly says "Oh god, you got em. WE LOVE YOU GUYS!" Army genius at work, hehe.

Scubaman3D, thank you for answering my post. If you could figure something out it would be sweet.

I thought you might appreciate this, I have several pictures of your mod in action: http://filebox.vt.edu/users/maeast/

The later numbered pictures have it on, I've pretty much been using it non stop since I downloaded it, except for online play of course.
