In 1 collection by 3cb.mods
3CB mods
10 items
Units representing British Army Soldiers, Royal Marine Commandos and Support Elements in Arctic, Desert (DDPM), MTP, Temperate (DPM), Tropical (DPM) and Woodland (DPM) camouflage patterns
By 3 Commando Brigade[]

If you're over 17 and would like to try these mods on a MP server, our public server is open 24/7.

With a large number of units and a multitude of pre-built infantry Groups to choose from, it is easy to create whole Company sized formations for your missions. Not only that, every Troop or Platoon will look unique, thanks to an automatic randomisation routine which equips each infantryman in gear suitable to his role from the wide choice of kit available.
This mod now fully utilises our 3CB BAF Equipment and BAF Weapons packs allowing the representation of 6 unique theatres / eras:

Arctic: Winter camo and contemporary weapons with LDS sights
Desert: DDPM camo and period weapons with SUSAT sights
MTP: MTP camo and contemporary weapons with LDS sights
Temperate: DPM Temperate camo and period weapons with SUSAT sights
Tropical: DPM Woodland camo and contemporary weapons with LDS sights
Woodland: DPM Woodland camo and period weapons with SUSAT sights

Each theme is divided into 3 factions: Army, Navy and Airforce, giving a total of 18 factions.

Some units spawn with only 1 magazine of ammo. Optics show blackness around the rest of the screen as if I was blind periferally. Is there any chance the default units will carry more than 1 single magazine?

Would you consider adding shoulder/collar armour for the osprey vests?

Nope - but if your download is, try deleting it and redownloading.

is this corrupted?

Ok definitive answer regarding Cold War unit errors.

"CW and ACE are optional, and not part of the main mod. CW adds RHS dependency and ACE is obviously ACE. On Steam these are placed into a single optional download that introduces both ACE and RHS as dependencies".

If you want to run CW Units you need ACE and RHS. No way around that.

CW was an after thought for us and was a quick fix for no CW units.
BTW this has not changed. CW have always been bundled with ACE. Primarily because all the optionals are really only for 3CB, and hence we use RHS and ACE as defacto for 5+ years.

Could it be changed, yes. Will it be changed? Who knows. A lot of work for very little gain (none for 3CB).

Bare in mind that we're talking about CW units and not CW equipment/weapons/uniforms.

I've asked about that error, it's just not something we see, so I honestly think the answer is going to be either A: you're running something else that is causing a conflict. B: you're not running a 100% validated mod and it's somehow corrupted. But I promise to check and come back 👍

Is this ACE only now? I cant load the mod without ACE. Same "Addon 'UK3CB_BAF_Units_Woodland_CW' requires addon 'ace_common'" problem.
Help would be greatly appreciated!

Horrendous. Weapons with optics take up 1/3 of my view. recoil of some weapons sends the sight clipping though my face. Friendly Ai in gunner seat are set to safe by default. They will set the gun back to safe randomly, getting you killed. Some vehicles are nearly invulnerable but that may be ACE's fault. Overall worse than global mobilisation. Would not recommend.:steamthumbsdown:

I have the same "Addon 'UK3CB_BAF_Units_Woodland_CW' requires addon 'ace_common'" problem.

"Addon 'UK3CB_BAF_Units_Woodland_CW' requires addon 'ace_common'. ? Dose this mean it can only be used with ace now? As i dont play with ace?
