Battletech Grass pack new version
I've managed to secure permission from Sled88 to release the final version of his excellent Battletech grass (Erba.pbo). This version fixes a bug present in the publicly available alpha/preview version where the grass model blocks bullets fired from certain angles (which made the preview version impractical for me to use in MP missions).
Although Sled88 no longer had a copy of the final version (which was never publicly released) I managed to locate the model being distributed (without attribution ) as part of Drago island. With Sled's permission I have repackaged the model with the two original textures used in the preview version as well as the texture used in Drago island release.
The grass itself is excellent for covering large areas and can block AI vision pretty well. I've included a template mission with various tiling patterns for use by editors.
Filefront download (Filefront's servers seem really unreliable so this link doesn't always work).
OFPr.info/ofp.gamepark.cz screens and mirror.
Sendspace mirror NOTE click the "Regular Download" button then "Click here to start download from sendspace" DO NOT click any of the other "download" buttons

Interesting, I will try it
So, what is better for performance in larger areas and cause less lag in MP? the I44 one or this one?
I get an error when i try to open the link! it says invalid ID!
Yeah filefront's servers seem really crap recently. Try refreshing a couple of times (it works about 50% of the time for me) or try the link from the main list.

For large areas Battletech grass is better, try the demo missions for examples of large areas. Battletech is comparable to Dragon Rising's style of grass while I44 feels more like Arma 2's so the two addons complement each other nicely.

Why are you adding Malware (if I don't want it it's malware)to this by making an installer that installs "BFix Toolbar,changes my homepage to "MSN' and makes Bing my default search engine? Wait it adds a shitload of others as well. Someone ban this guy already.
Err are you sure you're clicking the right link at sendspace? It should be a zip file, not .exes or installers etc.
Yup just checked the sendspace link and it downloads Battletech grass.zip.
For that matter why the hell would I be making an installer for single pbo addon anyway? Maybe you should think a bit more before making rash accusations.

EDIT Z is correct and I am sorry i didnt see the small download link (rolls eyes) that is below the HUGE ass one that actually loads up.

I always run NoScript so I never see the extra download buttons that litter free hosting sites.

no just maybe a small pic added to the post should do it. because until you actually confirmed it I didn't realize the other link was down below. All good please excuse the stupidity. multiupload kinda does them all. they all you to have an account as well and if you click the multiupload link it is a direct download.
