NLD Units

70 posts in this topic

Lowlands Tactical is proud to present a new release of NLD Units bringing it to version v2017040412.
NLD_Units, a mod that adds Dutch units to ArmA 3 in several delicious flavours! With over 30 units with 12 different camouflages accompanied by the necessary items and backpacks this mod adds over a massive 300 new classes to the game!

To summarize what this mod adds:
- 21 infantry units coming with 8 different camo's: Woodland, Desert, Winter, Jungle, NFP-Tan, NFP-Green, UN-Woodland and UN-Desert
- 10 Special Forces members coming in Black, MTP & KM
- Wheeled Vehicles coming in Woodland, Winter and Desert
- Armored Vehicles coming in Woodland and Desert (we love our tanks)
- Air Vehicles Armed & Unarmed
- Support Vehicles with crew

The units for now are (with a lack of 3D artists) reskins of BIS Units based on what we could find about our armed forces. At the time of writing this mod is by no means finished or mirrors our armed forces very well. So please be patient and expect these changes in the future. We are open to suggestions and contributions in any way! :)

This said, we are searching for a 3D modeler to create content for this mod. If you have any experience with modding weapons and vehicles for ArmA or would like to contribute, please contact me via PM.

Download:
You can download this release from: http://lowtac.nl/NLD_Units/@NLD_Units-2017040412.7z

Dependencies:
- CBA_A3
- CUP_weapons

 

- APEX

 

Notes:
- We have decided to have CUP_Weapons as a dependency as our newly introduced NLD_Units_OPFOR mod also uses these weapons. Secondly it's also a lot easier for when Cup has it's own updates.
- Dutch Aviation Emergency Services can be found under Civilian
- There is a F16C CAS AI version, which can be used for Alive Combat Support. This vehicle includes all the normal weapons
- It's not needed to download the F16C model and the EC135 model as they are included in this version
- With permission we've included several mods, so If you use Aplions HAFM EC635 and NH90, Firewills F-16 stand-alone in your modpack, this might conflict with this mod.
- This mod is made to run in ArmA3 vanilla, adding mods like ACE3 or other mods can change the experience and loadout of this mod (although it shouldn't matter).

Known issues:
- Rebranded CUP weapons still show their original version in the arsenal

- The Apache gunner triggers a "MachineGun" error when switching weapons
- AA Units trigger error on spawn
- No Motorized and Mechanized groups (yet)
- NH-90 breaks the tailrotor when slingloading in some cases

Would you happen to have the other textures from jw that he removed. Like the Panther And Bobcat? I don't know if you would remember but he removed them from his marsof mod, just like the NH-90 in yours :D. Also the AAF Warrior could be an OK CV-90??? Just a suggestion. Love the mod keep it up :)

We have the blue Bobcat & Panther the koninklijke marechaussee version and the NH-90 that is in the mod, but I couldn't find anyhting else.

We also got the 2 color MX version, but for now we are looking for weapons to fit in our mod.

In a new update we wil add more vehicles, like the CV-90, PhZ200, several support & transport trucks.

As we aren't modders we are bound to the standard arma vehicles, and maybe the aproval of others to use their mods.

If you have more tips, about what we can use we are all ears.

Well the new CH-47 Huron would fit nice, And the AH-99 as an attack chopper. I know they do not use the lynx anymore but the AAF light choppers would just add more sandbox content. Which personally I like, cannot speak for the rest of the community.

Can't wait for the update sounds great :) I am not the best texture artist and I do not have a lot of time but I can help if you guys want some more people on the project.

We are looking for the real Chinook & Apache. we are talking to someone to use their mod.

BIS has done something to the Helicopters & Cart updates and we are stil waiting for an update to the Arma Tools.

So we can't retexture the helicopters like the Huron & Taru (yet),

Thanks after Marsof there was a big hole in the Dutch presence in ArmA3, so we filled it and stil more filling to come.

Have you guys also thought about normal vehicles, that the dutch army uses most? MB 290GD?

Like you we have searched but not found anything yet, we don't have any modders onboard, so we might have to look into porting it from previous Arm series.

But no promises ;)

We are stil working on a few transport, support & water vehicles.

Weapons & Helicopters are comming soon, so stay tuned.

Hey, Massi has some landrovers out of all kinds. Do you think they will fit into the mod? I am creating a unit based around the NLD so the more sandbox content you guys come up with the better :D. Keep up the great work. Also.. the AAF Kamaz trucks could fit as a logistics DAF truck?? Just an idea.

NLD Units by Lowlands Tactical

This is a new release mainly meant to fix small bugs and add small features.

In the v0.2 release we hope to add other weapons and more helicopters!

Download it from here: http://lowtac.nl/NLD_Units/@NLD_Units.7z

PLEASE NOTE!

Due to a clean-up in the config older scenarios will not work. I have no way around it at all at this point.

My apologies for these growing pains.

This is however easy to fix.

1) Go to the directory of your scenario and open your mission.sqm file with your favourite text editor.

2) Search for the following two lines:

And replace this:

addOns[]=

{

"NLD_Units", <--- This

};

addOnsAuto[]=

{

"NLD_Units", <--- This

};

with this:

addOns[]=

{

"NLD_Units_Infantry", <--- This

"NLD_Units_Air", <--- This

"NLD_Units_Wheeled", <--- This

"NLD_Units_Tanks", <--- This

};

addOnsAuto[]=

{

"NLD_Units_Infantry", <--- This

"NLD_Units_Air", <--- This

"NLD_Units_Wheeled", <--- This

"NLD_Units_Tanks", <--- This

};

Changelog

v0.1.5

- Clean-up of the config

- Zeus support (thanks to a clean-up of the config)

- AGM fast-roping support for the MH65 and the NH90

- SF units now have a regular pistol, but a silencer in the backpack (due to AGM)

- Medics now Medic

- Engineers now Engineer

- Explosive Specialists now Deactivate

- Haters now hate

Known Issues

- Changing Backpacks in VAS/Arsenal may give you all the gear in the backpack (again)

- MH65 pilots sometimes stand in their seats. This is a rare occurrence, but this is with BIS (I think).

Credits

- PingWing to point-out the flaws in our previous release (many thanks!)

- CrabNipplez for valuable feedback

- Tangodown: Tactical Gaming Community and Dutch Lions Community for secretly testing this for us! ;)

Lowlands Tactical and LowLands Warrior are proud to present a new release of NLD Units bringing it to version 0.1.7.

We have teamed up with LowLands Warrior for this modset and we would like to hereby thank Neptune for his support and valuable contributions!

Major changes in this release are:

- Different weapons closer to home

.kju kindly granted us permission to use the weapons in CUP. While the current implementation is somewhat odd it does offer a much needed change.

- Better armour for helmets and plate-carriers

Now we should die less often when getting hit, previous values were comparable with t-shirts and baseball caps :-(

- Empty backpack for Arsenal/VAS

This should prevent having the same items multiple times in your backpack.

Other changes include respecing of the kit of several roles reflecting the adoption of CUP Weapons for the arsenal. Also SF forces have a unit with an MP5 for your CQB action! ;)

Downloads

Download is available at: http://lowtac.nl/NLD_Units/@NLD_Units.7z

( Please be gentle with our little server. )

Dependencies

- @ASDG_JR

Known issues

- Rebranded CUP weapons still show their original version in the arsenal

- SF (black) COMSPEC doesn't have a UAV table (like it should)

- Still now insignia's (next release!)

Future plans

The goal is to turn v0.2 into a vehicle release. I cannot disclose or promise what will be in this release.

You may already know this but the most recent update for HAFM_NH-90 has added the Marine Variant. I believe its the same one the NLD uses. Just thought I would bring it up if your interested. And the other variants would be cool re textured in a woodland camo and maybe a tan/arid camo to "Enhance Netherlands Defence Forces Combat Effectiveness In Operations :P" Again, just suggestions. It takes a lot of work to re-texture and model stuff.

Hi BagPiperGuy,

We will be replacing the vanilla NH-90 with HAFM in the next release. We already have the skins ready for the marine version, so we got this covered. :)
