The Ghosts - Mod for ArmA 3

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

Just a quick announcement about an Arma 3 mod I am working on, partly inspired by Lightspeeds missions.

A way way, way back I posted about developing a mod for ArmA 3 which captivated the feel of Ghost Recon.

Now about 4 years later after messing around on other stuff and life in general I have a basic mod working and clumped together.

I've put the source files (minus sound files) on Github and can send out a link to the addon on Dropbox (pm me)

 

Github Repo:

https://github.com/bat26/the_ghosts

Dev / Feature tracker:

https://trello.com/b/jt2hH33l

Dropbox :

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/55c9wo1bfnr64tq/AADScrZiJ82LXDv62uQxMCzwa?dl=0

 

 

 

Looking for any help or collaboration.

The end goal is a framework that lets people create missions with as close a feel to Ghost Recon 1.

Cheers,

A few friends and I were talking about a similar project, we were essentially going to remaster the entire game including remastered versions of the maps, but bigger, better and more diverse, with original GR gear, PASGTs, land warrior system, BDU's etc

If you need anything from me let me know

I will do

I really suck at texturing, I ended up recycling a BDU from ArmA 2 which was made open.  In terms of scripting I am comfortable but always looking to get any help or suggestions.

I have setup a Trello board for dev management (yay agile!)

I could probably zbrush and bake a new BDU model if you want me to, saves using A2 ports for assets, I have a good friend who textures like a god, I'll see if he'll hop aboard.

Thanks for the offer I PM'd you

Here's a few screenshots of the kind of loadouts I predone using CUP addons.

The plan would be to keep using the CUP weapons as they are good but improve the uniforms and other smaller things (no points reinventing the wheel).

Still on the fence about whether to use PASGTs or the new ECH helmets.

sorry, i just have to say it, eeew, CUP, there's virtually no upgrade involved with CUP, it's just straight A2 ports and it's bogged down with way too much unnecessary stuff. 
I would highly recommend a switch to RHS, they also have the LWH in there which is essentially a 4 point PASGT, hiddenselections retextures are allowed. and you'd honestly get a much more accurate result with them than using CUP.

but, that's an outside opinion, I may be biased as i work with them, but the bias is reasonable i'd say.

Understood,

I will do some experimenting with RHS stuff tomorrow. With CUP I have flexibility for terrains and vehicles.

Perhaps there is a happy medium with CUP terrains and RHS for uniforms and kit?

Yea the RHS weapons are night and day compared to CUP. Shame they don't have a BDU uniform available.

yes, you're biased and no the bias is not reasonable.

That's your opinion, and ecurb seems to think i had a point, I would go on, but this thread is months old, I'd prefer not to revive it by getting absorbed into a petty and unnecessary argument with you that frankly has no substance.

Sorry, I just took offence to the hundreds of hours of effort put in by the community to bring content to A3, which you referred to as ewwww.

The ewww was at the A2 quality, and again, I'm not reviving this thread with such discussion. I am entitled to my opinion and you are entitled to yours. I would request that you take your passive aggressive quips and fight starting attitude into PM if you wish to discuss this further.
