US Navy SEALs for CO v2.00



Hi all,

Since “Act of Valor” arrived also in my country, I decided to release a major update of my US Navy SEALs addon .
The addon is a retexture of BI Delta force, that rapresents US Navy SEAL operators in a wide set of different camouflages , giving the units the possibility to operate in all kind of environments.
In this update, you’ll find new combat shirts textures, improved loadouts, new units and specialists, snipers\observers in “ghillie suite” top, config improvements, 4 new camouflage sets (desert DCU, woodland BDU, full PCU suite, multicam black gear and black balaclava), groups improvements, new replacement files and ACE config updated.

The addon now gives you 16 different operators with their own custom loadout, for each type of camouflage (8 camos), plus 3 snipers\observers wearing their “ghillie suite” top for each AOR1, AOR2 and multicam camos.

There are also 4 fatured groups for every camo type (plus the ghillie ones insede AOR1, AOR2 and multicam), in order to improve the units placement in the editor.
Hope you’ll enjoy this new version !

Description
You’ll find US Navy SEALs in the editor in the following variants :

- SEAL (ACU): in ACU uniforms and light green\grey helmets.
- SEAL (Multicam/coyote): multicam uniforms and coyote gear , for every environment.
- SEAL (Multicam/black): multicam uniforms, black gear and balaclava, for maritime ops, CQB, hostage rescue situations.
- SEAL (AOR1): desert and arid environments.
- SEAL (Des): desert DCU, for desert and arid environments.
- SEAL (AOR2): for temperate and woodland environments.
- SEAL (Wod): woodland BDU, for temperate and woodland environments.
- SEAL (PCU): complete PCU suite for winter/snow, all weather environments.


I used what I found on web as reference sources.

Features:

- All the models HAVE WORKING WOUND TEXTURES.
- Units are equipped with M4s, and have their own specific loadout.
- Every set of camouflage has a wide variety of roles, 16 different units for each different camo as follow: Sqd LD, TL, med, demo, SAW, MG mk48, MG M60, AT, AA, Sniper M110, Sniper M107, Spotter\JTAC, Operator M4, Operator M4GL, Operator MP5, Breacher; plus 3 camo version of "ghillie top" sniper M110, M107 and Spotter\JTAC (find inside AOR1, AOR2, Multicam\coyote).
- Every type of camouflage has is own set of groups, 4 groups for each camo: Combat Team, Strike Team, Recon Team (SD weapons), and Sniper Team; plus 3 sniper groups for "ghillie" snipers version (find inside AOR1, AOR2, Multicam\coyote).
- New "Engineer" ability for the sapper , and all the other units can hide bodies and use explosives.
- Featured content rucksacks , now also in multicam and black version.
- Optional ACE config with ACEX gear available, including ACE "AI talk" module support.
-Custom portraits and editor icons.
-Custom patches for specialists (EOD, JTAC and Medic).
- 8 Replacement files that replace standard BI US delta force models with the ones in your preferred camo (acu, aor1, mult, aor2, des, wood, pcu, mult\black) , with WORKING WOUND TEXTURES on the models off course!


Installation.
Put the addons in the "mod folder" of your preference, you will find the units in the editor under:
Bluefor - US Navy SEALs - SEAL ... (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - US Navy SEALs - SEAL ... (sorted by different camos).

Requirements.
It requires Arma 2 Combined Operations (A2 + OA) to run , because it uses OA models and some A2 weapons.

ACE2 config files Installation.
Just put the ACE2 Optional Config (called "mas_us_seals_ace.pbo") in the modfolder of your preference and you'll see in the editor only the SEAL ACE classes.
This config DO NOT replace original SEAL units, instead it only "hide" them in the editor by setting them as "protected", I did in this way in order to get the maximum compatibility and to avoid changing classnames of the units (for mix makers).

Units and settings are the same as for standard SEALs, but they're all equipped with ACEX gear (Balaclava , Gas Mask and earplugs) and ACEX weapons (ACEX M4s, plus spotters have rangefiders and kestrel 4500, demo expert uses ACEX explosives like M18 and C4, CQB units like breacher and MP5 operator have tear gas and flashbangs,...) .
Units use "English" if Ace AI Talk is enabled.
Units are placed same way as for vanilla game in the editor:
Bluefor - US Navy SEALs - SEAL ... (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - US Navy SEALs - SEAL ... (sorted by different camos).

Replacement Pack Installation.
You'll find 8 different replacement files, you can use ONLY ONE AT A TIME !!!
Just choose your preferred camo (from the 8 option available), and put the relative replacement in a modfolder, you'll see standard BI Delta Force models replaced by US SEAL's ones, all with working wound textures activated.
Graves characters (light and heavy) are replaced as well ... so you can play the campaign again, with a bit different feeling.

Changelog.

ThankYou very much Old Bear for the mirror, really appreciated ;)

Thanks a lot to all of you I'm really happy you're enjoying this new update ;)!

for the classlist , sorry for not including them inside the pack, anyway here they are inside the spoilers:

US SEALs:
Spoiler


and here the ACE units only available installing the ACE optional config, and havin ACE running of course:
Spoiler


Hope I'll find the time to upload also their loadout in the near future.

Well, for the replacement files they work this way:
Once installed the addon you'll find in the editor inside the "BLUEFOR >> US Navy SEALs" class all 8 sets of SEAL units divided by their camouflage (aor1, aor2, multicam\black, multicam\coyote, desert dcu, woodland bdu, full pcu and acu).
And that works the same for the ACE optional config, the replacement files instead replace the standard BI Delta Force unit of operation arrowhead with the models of my US SEALs, using the camouflage you choosed from the 8 different options available, divided by folder.
So if you choose the replacement "multicam\black gear" and you install it, you will still have all sets of camouflage for my SEAL units, but at the same time you'll se all BI Delta Force unit models replaced by the multicam\black gear ones, in fact the replacement file works just on base BI delta force unit, and for this reason you can only use one at the time!

Hope I answered your question.

ThankYou very much again :) !

Best Regards

Ah allright, makes sense, so rep folder does only rep for BIS DEltas, allright. So no matter which rep folder i pick, the seal section of yours in the editor is always the same. Thx for the classlists, thx a lot ..Really good units, exactly what i needed for my lingor mission. I think multicam with and without black + woodland look awesome. Woodland is actually high res , if you ask me. Well done m8 ..you may should edit first post with the classlists

Excellent mod!

For requests pertaining Six Updater, it's sufficient to write on SU support-box, no need to bother authors :)
As you suggested on the SU support-box, separating the ACE configs to another mod-folder was sufficient and has been done.

1. I have to thank you again for these units, i love the black multi dudes having nice equipment on ace by default
2. Thanks again for taking the time and listing all the class names, very good for editing missions. A lot of people don't do that..
3. The rucks are for both, vanilla and ace? Are they filled up or empty? If they're filled up, could you maybe do an additional medic pack if you're ever going to update this addon?
