thx dude. great pack btw one of my fav'sOriginally Posted by (Miles Teg @ Oct. 24 2004,18:18)
I love this pack! Thanks!
I have a few bugs tho, for the kfir and mirage you can see half of the tire protruding from the cocpit, and with the mirage the pilot's head is sticking out a bit.
Then for the IDF snipers with the desert eagle, they dont have any bullets or they just wont fire for some reason.
For the egyptian infantry, when you are the rifle grenadier and load a rifle, your sweet camoed ak turns into the standard bs one and as soon as u fire it turns back into the lobo camo ak.
Besides that awesome job.
I have a question, for your next mission pack will you make the m-4 car-15 series based on flipper's m-4's? Cause I think they would look allot better if they werent based on the bis xm-177.
Good work !
Lot of desert content to play with on some desert themed island
Thanks guys. ***Hmm...yeah I forgot to check the desert eagle as I don't often bust out the pistol unless I'm out of ammo or I'm doing close quarters. ***Yeah its just an ammo bug...something got messed up in the .cpp of either the weapons.pbo or on the soldier himself. ***In the next update we'll get that fixed. ***Until then if you're going to do close quarters either blast away with the M82A1 or pick up an assault rifle, SMG, or a different pistol from a dead body if you're going to go Rambo on the enemy.
As for the M4/CAR-15's actually they are not based on any of the BIS rifles. Ours are original models made by Vipersheart (although he may have had some assistance on these a looooong time ago from SBJ as they used to work together on stuff).
Flippers looked great texture-wise but I always found them to be too bulky looking. In this pack we attempted to size the M4's/CAR-15's more like the Digital Grenade M4's in their USMC Assault pack.
That size is very accurate. Ours however do not have their folding stock fully extended. Improvements in the future may include an extended stock and also a second magazines tied to the one in use as in real life where magazines are attached to each other in this way in order to provide quick reloading in close quarters combat.
On the Egyptians, yeah there's that little LOD bug on that grenadier. ***We'll get that sorted out in the next update as well. ***Thanks for spotting those bugs! ***Much appreciated.
-Expect the Unexpected-
iam wondering what is in the next update, can u comment on that and agian great pack.
Sure. ***The next update will contain F-16's (Egyptian and Israeli), F-15's, Israeli MD-500 Defender gunships (rocket and TOW variants), updated IDF and Egyptian troops to include HALO special ops soldiers (based on the ROC3 mod HALO soldiers with Andy Lee's permission) possibly an IDF S'13 frogman (although its not for sure), Humvees, and possibly some HEMMT's if we get the COMBAT mod's permission to use them. *** Oh... also we will be converting Footmunch's IL-28 Beagle into Egyptian bomber, AGM, and ECM variants. ***I still need to contact Footmunch just to make sure its cool with him as I can't remember or find an email regarding whether or not he gave us permission to use them. ***So I need to just double check with him just to make sure everything's cool with him. *** We've actually already done the Beagle conversions and they're looking PIMP! ***
We also will add an Egyptian Fast Attack Boat, Zodiacs, and probably both URAL's and M939A2 5 ton trucks for the Egyptians (as they use both).
We'll also look into getting the IAF blackhawks and Apaches although I don't know if they'll make it into this pack.
Then of coarse there also will be that terrorist pack but it still needs a little more work. ***We will be modifying that into a Palistinian pack which will also include suicide vans that explode upon reaching a "destroy" waypoint. *** We already got the van's made and ready to roll. ***They'll provide for hair raising missions at checkpoints and during patrols in heavy traffic in the larger cities. ***
I also got a bunch of missions I'm working on for the next pack as well including some airborne assault missions, a TF777 counter terrorism mission, and one I plan on doing using the Egyptian TF777 soldiers to hunt down Al-Qaeda terrorists simulating the recent terrorist attacks in the Sinai that occured in real life. ***It will probably be a two part mission in which IDF special operations units attack an Al-Qaeda HQ near the port in the Saudi Arabian section of our Sinai map.
These will be done on the new Sinai Version 4 map that we will be releasing shortly. ***I'm testing it right now and its looking super!!!!
It will come with all the addons needed for it in order to avoid confusion dude to missing addons. Furthermore it will no longer need the CATshit Afghanistan map in order for it to work. ***
Lets get those boots in there, too, Miles.
And someone I've got that authentic reload sound for the LAW and the authentic shooting sounds for the silenced Papa Uzi.
And we need someone to make a Negev LMG!

The terrorists will be East, or resistance?
Or will it be palestineians for east, and al quaeda for resistance?
Yeah you need the zelda's for the textures on the MG's..
as for the wrists yeah that is a bug wtih how the models are it loosk weird but i think I might ask suchey for premission to use the gloves from the marines. and see how that goes.
no promises tho.
as for the Deserage Eagle. yeah might be a simple confip typo or something. I will look at it later tonight. yes there will be frog men for atleast the IDF s'13 those are alreayd made. also there should be more lods for the egyptian troops to help with lag issues..
as for the rifle grenader that is because he uses JAM rifle grenade ammo I still have no idea how I am goin to handle that.. most likely I am goin to make my own ammo or just scrap the rifle grenader and maybe give them m203's liek s'13 has or something. it is one of those game egnine issues that hurts reality..
the Kfir is really ugly and does need work but atleast it si there?
lol i will look at it later but aircraft are a real pain to work with..
as for the car-15's they has been resized for this pack. the M4's I might uses INQ's m4's he released for people to use and might use other people's m4's too just to give a different flavor and differnt looks on the m4's..
the arab civilian/terrorist pack. is completely genderic and the civ's are only civ but the terrorists there is 1 for each side ie 1 east 1 west and 1 res.
ther eis like 15 terrorists int he pack and each side has them so you do the math.
as for the palistinings will be on res and east sides for better mission choices.. jordan will be res syria will be east so yeah.
egypt will fight palistings soem times so they are res and jordan has to battle them sometimes too so yeah better range in choices..
