A week till Christmas and we're up to our kilts in snow here in Scotland... :eek:

In a desperate effort to get into the spirit of things I've updated my old Bad Santa RC to work with OA and Combined Ops installations, plus an extra bonus config designed to be used in conjunction with Raunhofers "Thirsk Winter" & KuiK's Winter Camo combo - more about that last one later...

Whats in the download?
There's a readymade modfolder you can use right away if you like... just drag the "@Bush_BadSanta" folder to your main Arma2 directory and add it to your shortcut/launcher... you know the drill...
Theres also a Server Key folder - this is of interest only to Server Admins...
The configs should be completely MP compatible and run clientside only...

Inside the @Bush_BadSanta\Addons folder you'll find 3 files with matching .bisign files... heres what they are and what they do... decide on the ones you want, delete the ones you don't, put them in any modfolder you like... easy...

This replaces all instances of the default Arma 2 Russian OPFORS with Bad Santas

This does the same thing with the default Takistani Army soldiers

... if you have A2 and OA then you'll want to keep both these files, otherwise you can safely delete the one matching the game you don't have...

This is a bonus replacement config specifically designed to be used with the following additional addons...

The deeply awesome Winter Thirsk Island by Raunhofer

Kuik's Winter Camos 1.1


VanhA's Thirsk Coop Mission Pack

What does it do?
Basically - these config addons replace the normal models and names of the Default OPFORS with Bad Santas - in ALL missions you play... Spetznaz are, of course, Very Bad Santas... Colonel Aziz? well he reckons he's the Baddest Santa... Ever!
This should work with most missions using the default units, so its an easy way to replay a few missions and show that Festive Fatboy exactly what you think of this years presents! :D
Just a bit of non-serious fun for over the holidays...

REMEMBER - you must have Sen Chi's Arma 2 Santa Pack loaded as well as this RC addon

Download: Bush Bad Santa 2010
Download From Armaholic (thanks as always, Foxhound!)

... and finally... if you have fun with this over Christmas (and after 4 days of turkey there's few things more genuinely satisfying - and entertaining - than dropping a fast-moving bearded fat man in a red suit at 500 meters with a single headshot :D), then remember it was Sen Chi who made the models! - these are just configs...

Sen Chi's Santa thread - much like Santa himself - is way past the last posting date ;), and therefore off-limits ... (can't have rules an' then not follow 'em, I guess)
A weel... as they say in Scotland, as if it actually means something...

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Valid point as usual Shez!

Yes... since this addon runs purely clientside - using it in an MP game without telling anyone might easily be considered "cheating"...
Fat blokes in bright red suits are easy to spot... :D

Hardly the Spirit of Christmas though, so of course nobody will actually use it to gain an advantage ;)

Sign & Key files are included - which is all thats required by Server Admins to "allow" the addon over Christmas - if they wish... otherwise their usual security sign&key checks should reject this addon just nicely...

What is the best urban terrain for use in a mission where you are a serial killer killing all mall Santas in crowded civilian areas?

Now you need to replace Cows with reindeer, little old ladies with Mrs. Claus, boars with little elves and prostitutes with female elves. And don't forget to port Deanos Beanos' snowball addon from Armed assault. There could be an assault on the north pole. Or maybe a special operation to steal "The List" or Santa's cocoa formula.

You should also consider putting stains on the santa suits and beards.

Somewhere in this forum someone is having a relapse on their childhood phobia, lol. Now all we need is a replacement config with clowns.

A very interesting addon... If only you could so something with Blufor as well.

Interestingly enough, i recently hopped back on to an old favorite server from the game 'Red Orchestra', and they had a mod that replaced all helmets (and hats) with Santa hats. As others said, red/white is very easy to spot...
