US Army ACU

Well, officially it's not MARPAT, ;) The desert uniform you see here was purely the result of an accident on my part, as I was trying to dial in the "regular" version- I'm not even sure if there is a desert version of the ACU in real life, but this looks cool. The regular ACU is actually looking pretty good here in the desert setting as well. And, as I had predicted, the lighting of the environment made quite a difference on the color of the gray areas. Anyway, I'm just about to wrap this up, just have to do the demo and support in the desert version and touch up the ACU-vest rifleman. Show of hands- who wants me to release this for download? :lol: Once it's done, probably within a matter of hours, who do I need to contact to upload it for download? Rocky?

I think that there is no desert ACU. The gey... sorry... grey camo, from what I am led to beleive, is multi applicable to different surroundings. Therefore, it saves tax payer money when it comes to ordering new combat gear. They already save money on webbing... only SF seem to wear desert webbing. All other Infantry units, in British and US Armies wear green webbing over desert BDUs.

Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

I just punked out on doing a matching vest on the demo and support guys because it was rather a pain to do the rifleman. As far as matching vests, if you'll notice, all my guys have the SF patch and flash on their arms, so no worries there... ;) And I tend to agree with you. I think the camo is supposed to be truly an all-environments uniform, but I just thought the "desert version" was just too cool to not share.

Okay, it's done. I have a couple more pics to throw up on here later, but it's all finished. I redid the Marines that were originally in the game as I thought the MARPAT was way off, and I did Will Jacobs, Buzz Gordon and Lindy Cohen's uniforms into ACU, as well as IT versions of the soldiers with boonies.

Here's the list of what's included:

Henry Ramirez, Buzz Gordon, Lindy Cohen and Will Jacobs skins in ACU for original maps.

USMC MARPAT skins for rifleman, demo, support and sniper.

Demo, support, rifleman and alternate rifleman skins for original, desert and jungle maps in ACU.

Snowfella's awesome M8 weapon family.

Enjoy, guys!

Now, I just need to know where to send it for upload.

Sent a PM to Rocky, so hopefully we can get this bad boy uploaded for you guys to start downloading. :D Here's the last few pictures of the Marines and the specialists. Please excuse the masks on the specialists. I was playing around with something else... ;)

Sorry guys, goofed up when saving the US soldiers and ended up with files that were 3 MB each for them. THey're 1024x1024 and saved at the highest RGB settings, so you're welcome to use them, but I'd recommend the smaller DL because I didn't see a difference in quality. Other than that, enjoy!

it saves tax payer money ..
:P

Hey great skins! I love the ACU and plan to DL this evening after work! Thanks for the fix up on the USMC characters in IT, that original MARPAT version had to go! :blink:

Any chance you could do a good USMC Desert (w/o SF insignia o' course!) and regular MARPAT for the riflemen and Demo's (WITH K-pot) in the near future? I DL'd some kinda, shall we say, "off-color" skins last year but I always yearned for a dead on rendering! I know that the MOD "Spec-Ops" has chr's in great desert MARPAT but I have yet to see a convincing "green-brown" tropical MARPAT WITH helmet covers too!

Just a thought, and thanks for the great ACU skins!!!! :santa: woot! :thumbsup:

Tell you what, talib, if you have access to Photoshop, and get "Wildcat's Skinning Materials", he has some really killer base camos, including the MARPAT I used for the Marine uniforms (I can't take credit for something as good as that texture- I'm just a beginner! :D). If you don't have Photoshop, PM me or post here and I'm sure I can find some time to put something like what you want together :thumbsup:

Appreciate that! :)

I do not have Photoshop at all and I could not really begin to do the work myself even if I did.

If the offer from you still stands then that would be great if you could put something together!

PM me whenever you do I'm sure you could do a great job, seeing the ACU skins you put together there.

Take your time I don't want you to feel like you have to or anything. ;)

Thanks!

Oh, I will take my time... ;) Got some other projects cookin' up, but if you give me a couple hours, I can probably get something done tonight, if you're not too picky :rofl: I can bust out rifle, demo and support in both camo versions and the sniper in desert. Shall I do a mod real quick then?

Had a go with a couple of missions withe ACU last night...

DAMN fine job with the rendering! Like many people though, I still think the Army adopting this cammo is a little weird, cuz it is so bright! Well, in game, anyways but I think they need to rethink the woodland aspect or having two cammos still at least. USMC did!

I think they should adopt the pattern WP came up with as that one blends in GREAT.

Alot of times I was like "Where's my dudes at??"

Anyhow great one man thanks for the ACU skins and the MARPAT too! *bows!*

:lol:
