Skins for 2017 Ukrainian/Pro-Russia Separatist forces

Recommended Posts

All,

A link for my Ukrainian/Pro-Russia Separatist skin is included below.  

Back in early 2016, I did hours of research and created a set of skins for the Ukrainian government and separatist forces based on several preexisting mods (Veins' Russian and Ukrainian Infantry skins, Stagler's Russian skins with gorka and flora camo, Blimey's "Separatist - UKR Digital Slot").  The resulting product is a line-up of government and separatist forces wearing a motley of different camo clothing.  I would like to thank Stagler, Veins, and Blimey for your wonderful contribution to our community!  But if any of the original content creators object to my usage of their mods, pls message me, I will make revisions accordingly.  This is my first post, do let me know if you encounter any problem with the download or the mod itself, I will fix it.  Also please share your thoughts on how we can improve this mod together, I want this project to belong to our whole community.  Hope you guys enjoy!

Description of the mod:

1. Ukrainian government forces:

The government soldiers wear mostly the new digital camo pattern, mixed in with some uncovered green/gray helmets and the old bytan-pattern camouflaged helmets and ballistic vests.

2. Pro-Russia separatist forces:

I chose the digital slot for the separatists because I feel that, notwithstanding reports of Russian arms surfacing in Donbass, the separatists' equipment is still predominantly the same equipment used by the Ukrainian government forces.  What differentiates this mod from Blimey's version is the inclusion of a different mixture of motley camouflage and helmets, rebalanced to reflect (in my opinion) a more authentic look for the government forces and the separatists.  Based on my research, olive gorka suits and Russian flora patterns are fairly common among separatist ranks.  Occasionally, you will also see some separatists wearing equipment in the new Russian digital pattern.  For identification purpose, separatists tie white bands on their arms and legs (Government forces sometimes use yellow tape for identification, but I left this feature out b/c this practice appears to have become less common since the adoption of the new digital pattern).  This mod reflects these observations accordingly.

Furthermore, I reintroduced helmets for the separatists for several reasons. (1) I can't add bare-headed separatists without also having to remove helmet chain-strap from all Ukrainian models. (2) In intense battles (e.g., Second Battle for Donetsk Airport), video footage showed many frontline separatists wearing helmets.  (3) This game reflects the conflict in 2017, it's likely that the separatists have become better equipped.

Great job man. Could you please add Gorka for Ukrainian side as well? Ukrainian Armed Forces especially VDV forces are using them a lot. Since this year Ukraine producing Gorkas of its own - with those patches areas colored in digital uniform.

When using this mod is it better to select digital camo or standard at the bottom left of the quick battle purchase screen?  I thought I had it figured out to be standard however when I opened a test map in the scenario editor I had to change the choice to digital to get the separatist look to appear.  What does everyone else use?

I downloaded from the dropbox link but the mod content of files only appears to be Govt (Ukranian) soldiers. Where are the Separatists at?

You have to select digital camo. for them to show up.

Thanks for your response but my point is that all the textures are Ukrainian soldier textures, there are no Russian ones.

EDIT: I see.. so you have to set up a battle scenario as Blue on Blue.

BUMP.  This is a good mod that is not located at CMMODs III so I thought I would bump it back up.  (It is also a mod used in the scenario: Tactical Operations Center :))

BUMP - please, please upload mods to CMMODS - that way we can all find them and their availability is not subject to the whim of HD rot / Dropbox decay. :D

Anyone having trouble getting upload permission can reach out to @Bootie if needed.
