Southafrican Army Mod

Recommended Posts

hi everyone!

we´re some guys working with a southafrican mod that we hope to

be able to release soon.

the mod work was in the first place started by cobaka, but he could

not finish it so he asked me if i could give it a go.

as i´ve never done this thing before, i took the challenge.

i realise now how much work the other mod-guys/girls are putting in.

heavy respect on their accounts!

xe_joker and callmehobbes is making the chr´s with some skin-help

from stalker.

i have mailed and asked for permission to use weapons to many

weapons modelers, wardenmac, dvs1 and streinger.

we have a green light in that department.

those guys have been really helpful in any possible way.

dvs1 is making a light sniper rifle especially for this mod. :D a teaser.

stalker_zero has sent me the monster: Mechem NTW-20 AMR!!!

everything looks good to release the mod after some testing of course,

but it would be even better if we could include a small campaign or

something like that. :whistle:

i know that there are some very skillful mission/campaign creators out there.

you are more than welcome to join us and make this mod even better.

why should the guys in this community/forum settle for anything less.

cobaka had some ideas and i also done some thinking about a plot.

screenshots

any hints, suggestions and so are welcome.

best regards/ ingeloop

i'm curious as to whether or not this mod is going to have some RECCE troops.  :shifty:

again, im very excited about this mod!

we´re going to have reece guys in the mod.

xe_joker and callmehobbes are working as hard as they can.

the best thing to do is to let things take time, so that it can

be as good as it can be.

so be patient all you out there, we´ll keep you posted and

showing screenies along the way :)

Hi,

I'm not sure about using the police camo as the desert skins. (This is an army mod!) I've been playing around with the tones of the camo and feel that we we better using the army camo on both, but with the desert camo toned to suit it's environment- it looks and feels far more authentic. (And works very well on the desert ghost town map). I think the police camo should be used for a specialist and possibly AI chrs (depending on mission types).

Oh, I've got a Recce chr that is looking not too bad at all(no screenies yet as I've no face for him!)

Still having problems with webbing/tac. vests. I've tried to copy the real thing and it looks awful - too orange! I've seen shots of green vests so I may just use some artistic license.

cheers and good luck team!

Like I told joker in a pm...I really like how the sniper turned out. :thumbsup:

I like how you split the ghille layer off the back of the pants legs. Sorta looks realistic that way.

Show him using the ntw. :P

Give him a dramatic pose prone on the ground along a full side profile view. And give him a spotter laying next to him with his binoculars out. :yes:

a small update on how things are going:

chr making is coming on strong, screenies will be posted.

weapons needed is a go-go, permissions have been asked for.

thanx to all the great weapons modelers, you scare me with

you skills :)

map-permissions are under work. contacts been made.

things are really looking good, i just hope that the mod will be

as good as it looks.

of course things can never be perfect, but we´re trying at least.
