They're great actually, just no beards.   Mustaches to the corner of the mouth?  Great*!  But more than that is as far as I can tell not done outside of SOF dudes.  I have to throw that caveat in simply because for all I know FOB Roberts in Afghanistan ran out of razors for several weeks. I do know I was clean shaven every day in Iraq, and I've policed up my mustache hairs using the exhaust from my tank to keep the water in my shave cup from freezing**

 

It's your mod man, and what you've put out is great stuff.  Just letting you know beards aren't quite right.

 

(Also Sergeant Majors, both Gunnery and Command types all come from the same place as far as I can tell)

 

*Ancient tanker tradition: Annoying infantry Command Sergeant Majors by growing our mustaches to the literal exact definition of regulation.

**I was just standing behind the tank.  The smarter way to do this is get one of the 7.62 NATO ammo cans, remove the lid (the hinge is open, so opening the lid and putting it to one side removes the whole assembly), stick the lid into the grill behind the exhaust while the tank is spooling up in the morning so it makes a shelf.  Then fill the can with water, and place on the ammo can lid.  After a few minutes the water will be comfortably warm thanks to the heat from the gas turbine, being transmitted through the metal sides of the ammo can. You may now shave in comfort at -4 degrees.

 I made sure my dudes were okay with it when I renamed my tank just because at the end of the day, they're the one doing most of the work on it.

Out of mild curiosity, speaking as a former AJE5, what did you do, sir, ask them?

 

And assuming a yes, what do you think they did? Do you think they answered you?

Thanks for your kind words people.

 

I have taken a look at the US uniforms. I am one of those who don't particularly like the look of the new camouflage (which might be better in person), but there's nothing to do about it, like it or not is a great fit in game, very similar to the real one. We could mod the old '80s woodland one in, but it wouldn't be much of a sense wouldn't it?

It looks bad sometimes due to the stretching effects that textures show on the soldier models when they have certain postures or do some movements.

 

So I will try to apply some mud and dirt on the lower parts for now, just to make the uniforms a bit more used and dirty.

Kieme CMBS reworked USA uniforms

 

This mod slightly changes US soldier uniforms, mainly by adding some weathering.

I decided to go with not excessive weathering because the look of it would be quite horrible compared to the base colors and the camouflage, just a little to avoid the original "fresh new" effect.

 

Changelog:

-light desaturation to the base colors of uniforms, helmets, backpacks, camelbacks, large pouches, boots.

-enhanced details

-3 layers of dust, dirt, mud applied to the clothing.

This mod starts with BTR 's research and conversion of russian vehicles into a realistic green color, so all credits shall go to him as the author of the original texture, which is in my opinion a great digital version of the original modern russian green, therefore special thanks to him and his work.

the original thread is found here:

http://community.battlefront.com/topic/117857-testing/

 

I have desaturated and slightly brightened the green color and added layers of dust, dirt, rainmarks, scratches, details etc. and enhanced the normal maps a bit.

Weathering all green vehicles is never easy, I still have to narrow down the precise techniques to use, so if you have any suggestion please add them as you feel to.

Kieme:

Many thanks for your tireless work and generosity - your buildings are particularly magnificent.

 

Regarding the RUS AFV's, I am thrilled to see a collaboration between yourself and BTR!  It is also great to see someone leveraging the normal maps to greater effect as they apply to vehicles - well done.

Will you be doing a weathering mini-mod of the “Common Gear” applied to vehicles?  Presently, we have weathered vehicles with clean gear applied.  This small mod could also extend to the crew served weapons mounted to vehicles: .50 HMG, TOW launcher, PKT etc..

Thanks again for all of your contributions - I have really been enjoying them!

Thanks Peter,

 

I'll look into the common gear. The US gear was covered with the abrams (it's in that mod) because it was the first of the US family. I'll see what's what with the rest that slipped.

 

As regarding the tank HMGs, some were tied with the single vehicles, some were not. Not sure what was going on there, but I also saw some troubles as few mods were not showing up properly...

yeah I missed a file with HMGs for the US. I'll try to set it up Tomorrow, thanks for the reminder.

 

As regarding the PKT, like the one on the mtlbu, I belive it must be modded toghether with infantry weapons. Another reason to make a "2nd hand weapons" mod.

Agreed.

You what??? Does not compute, does not compute. :D

I really like the weathering and dirt - defiantly what I look for in a mod. I have to say though I was hoping to see it on the dark green that BTR created.

Yeah I think its a bit too dirty, I would like to see the dark green come out a bit more.
