Description

Is there a demand for some woodland paint-schemes of some of the new vehicles in OA? I'm currently working on a woodland re-texture of the BIS-upgraded Bradley (hope to have some screens up soon.)

I figure the USMC versions of the HMMWV are fine for woodland US Army (with the possible addition of the uparmored 50 cal in woodland), and i presume ACE will bring back the green Strykers at some point. It's my understanding that its pretty rare to see desert camo LAVs and AAVPs in USMC service, so desert skins aren't needed for those.

For OPFOR the only new vehicle useful for other factions seems to be the BTR-60. It would be a nice counter for the Stryker in TvT games (as the BTR-90 is almost impossible to balance) however from what I gather it has been replaced by the BTR-80 in Russian service, but i could still do a retexture of it in Russian camo like I did for the BMP2 if so desired.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but any other suggestions are welcome.

I'm all for the idea. I was going to ask for a retexured btr-60 among other vehicles, but ACE has enough on their hands. Thank you.

Edit: By the way, thanks for the BMP-2.

Sounds great, OA Humvees in woodland would be swell.

Hokay, heres a quick preview of how it looks (ignore the colored boxes, those were just references). I have a issue where the Bradley seems to have a strange blue tint, attached is a comparison to the LAV25. In photoshop the colors are pretty much identical between the two vehicles but in-game they are quite different, if anyone has any clue as to why its doing this I would love to know, otherwise i guess ill try and just compensate for it in photoshop. Once that's solved all that's left is a last check to make sure the camouflage matches up everywhere (the UVs are exactly conducive to a camouflage pattern) and some weathering.

Its the materials. We gave the RVMAT and SMDI for the M2 some interesting attributes to get the desired material in OA.

I have the source PSDs and MLODs for the M2 in OA (being one of the artists who worked on it) so don't worry...woodland is possible yet.

Updated by ThePieSpy about 5 years ago

Ah okay i figured that it was something like that, thanks for the reply Scuba. At the moment im just adding some caked on mud/dirt and some rust to match the weathering with the BIS woodland vehicles, i figure it would probably be easiest to just send you guys a .psd of it?

Is there a possibility for CDF and ChDKZ reskin for the BTR-60?

Updated by ThePieSpy about 5 years ago

I'd be willing to do it, although i know RHS has a BTR70 in the works with versions for basically every faction, not sure if ACE plans to include those.

Perhaps if the ACE team includes the British Armed Forces in the upcoming DLC package then you could do a retexture of the Jackal and Warrior in OD. Thanks for your work so far.

I believe it was already mentioned somewhere that they wouldn't work on the DLC.

Thanks, I wasn't aware.

Any chance we might one day see these changes with HMMWV's?
