USMC Force Recon Mod V2


Recommended Posts

:santa::santa::santa:

Title says all, so I'll keep it short :) .

I'm playing GR's original campaign on elite (again) with my USMC FR Mod and I found many things that I'm not so happy with, so I will release version 2 of this mod.

The great thing about it is, the file structure and the skins already exist, so I just have to edit stuff, so the release will be in the near future.

Here are the major changes:

More chrs /skins - there will be several skins for each class, e.g. one with normal sleeves and one with sleeves rolled up.

Improved skins - new FSBE Amphibious Assault Vest in woodland & desert plus gear (made from photos for a maximum of realism).

More attachments - Element11 is making some more versions of the MICH, I also plan to include radio packs etc, so the marines will no longer look all the same.

More Specialists - V1 only had 8 Specialists, V2 will have 12, equipped for all environments!

More weapons and kits - I plan to include a few more weapons, but I'm not yet sure which ones. there will also be realistic loadouts, e.g. the rifleman has four 5.56 30rd double mag pouches on his vest, so he'll have 8 magazines for his M4!

Plus: camo'd weapons for specialists! :rocky:

Additional skin packs - the mod will also feature several skin packs that you can choose from, like urban or winter skins (:notworthy: Frostbite :notworthy: )

And much much more....

:shifty:

Awesome, glad to hear you're expanding your already great mod CC. How far along are you on this and how long do you expect it to take to finish?

I hope to get it done within a few, say 2-3 weeks.

Also are you going to do that Ranger mod you were talking about?

Oh yeah the Ranger mod. I really plan to do this one, but let me finish FR V2 first. Easiest way would be to make a skin add-on which reskins the Marines to Rangers.

thanks! Yes I'll try urban MARPAT, though I'm not sure if it will look good in-game.

Here's the second desert variant of the regular rifleman.

Whoops, I almost forgot to mention that the chr is from :notworthy: Bajabravo :notworthy:

I'm not certain if the colour of the vest and gear is correct, what d'ya think?

Cannot wait CC!!

Good luck.

BTW, I dont have ICQ so if I email you its probably because I need a way to convert the skins you sent to RSB..

The RSB converter only convered RSB to JPG not JPG to RSB :/.

Ah OK. should be no problem!

:D

Didn't Bajabravo stopped by this year. Man I hope he can stop by again with a gift. :shifty:

Can't wait to see this mod. :yes:

Ooooh I can feel that skin addiction coming back :lol: !

Completed the regular grenadier today (woodland version, too but I was in a hurry so only pics in desert).

The grenadier will be similar to the rifleman but, the name says it, he'll just have an M4 with M203. And, the times of only 5 or 6 40mm grenades are over 'cause the grenadier will carry 12! Half of the riflemen will be grenadiers.

hey cc...what about THAT snow camo that make u score 35+ votes? will our marines wear that one? ehhehe

Thought about that, too, but haven't decided yet. In fact this "snow" camo was a prototype pattern for urban MARPAT (not sure if it ever got or will be adopted). I just edited it to make it fit into winter environments.

:D

cm'on...cm'on... we should use the same words of the WJ competition...

maybe YOU ARE NOT ENOUGHT GOOD?

buahahah

lookin' forward for this one CC!

PS i have some cool skin made by snowfella, the same model of yourpics, with bandana, head radio and kneepads...tell me if interested and ask him too!

you know what would be interesting, and i want to do with COFS? taking out the sniper class. Sniper only in specialists, that will have passed the advanced markmanship or what is its name. Instead of sniper, grenadiers, and riflemans equipped with spotters kits or assault rifles in "sniper configurations". So, It will be harder and, in the same time, you'll protect at all cost your few experienced snipers!

That's exactly what I did in V1 and what I'll do now.

Only Specialists will have access to sniper rifles, in this case the M40 and M82. The snipers in the regular platoon will be "marksmen", but I'm not sure about their armament, what do you think? M4 (or M16?) with Acog & bipod or M14 DMR like in the first version???

Also another question. I've seen pics (over at militaryphotos) of Marines shooting the SR-25 (designated M110 now ,right?). What d'ya think should I add it (if I can get my hands on one) ?

decisions, decisions....

:D

for me you should put in the SR25, like those one in snowfella xm8 mod V2 (by thumper i think) that are avalaible in camo version (both forest and desert).

or also piccolo SR25 from Navy Seals v 2.1 and, if u wanna, there is also the M40.

Anyway, i do not remember with what name it is designed...i remember Mk 11, but i'm easyly wrong.

about the marksmen, i'd say all 3 weapons... m16 from m16 armoury maybe, m4 by prozac and the m14 DMR. Maybe do something as thales did, a kit with a scope with a lot of zoom. A nice scope was in SAS21, if i remember well, or just ask thales.

what else...uhm...a pistol leg attachment for those grenadier, or maybe a big pouche on the right leg to store nades...there is one in IT, att_cuba_alied_demo.qob, but note that its texture is rotated of 180, a small error of RS i think! LOL if u try the "original" file on an actor, u'll see the bottom high and the top low... The attachment seems to the Demolitions left leg pouche.

Err...maybe some backpacks?

Excellent work CC, those Force Recon guys look absolutely awesome.

A semi-unrelated question for you though, these Rangers you plan to do at a later stage, are they going to be based on current generation camo pattern, or earlier? (Woodland BDUs and 3 colour desert DCUs versus the new ACU pattern.)

Or do you plan to have all three patterns?

I for one would like this, always nice to have a bit of choice.

acu (army combat uniform?) is just for the Army if i understood well...marines (navy) have the Marpats (Marine Pattern?)
