this all looks awesome great job! only problem is us brits dont use DPM any more, we use MTP
MTP is currently being issued to combat troops in afghanistan. I did DPM mainly because its widely used around the world so I can use it for a wider variety of countries. (I may do MTP later but for now they are stuck with DPM) WHen I say british DPM thats because I literally took the pattern from a british uniform.. its not a knockoff from portugal
Interesting note.. MTP is a mix of Multicam and DPM. So I may try to cheat and super impose the Muticam I did for the US over teh DPM and see what happens
But yes not every country is going to have the exact camo type made to specifications.. if I did that I would end up with probably 100 or more different textures. Which I would actually do.. if i could implement them without having to create a new unit for each texture. Adding over 100 Units just to add varation isn't something I want to do. (IE if I could specify the texture file by nation rather than being called by the unit itself.)
At the battery I'm at we have some REME guys assigned to us and they all have MTP camo, I guess it depends on availability and demand as its being introduced across the board. Ah well i guess we can live with DPM for now
Ya I'm implementing all the designs now and looking for "holes". Unfortunatley I haven't seen any countries I could use MTP for..(other than the U.K of course) So its being pushed down on the "wishlist". DPM is being phased out by the U.K. your not wrong about that. But DPM is widely used by many nations so it was higher on my priorities than MTP. (Make a texture for one country.. or make one that 10 can use?)
I'm already acquiring quite a list of holes in my list.. and most of them are countries that wanna be all special and have some crazy arse camo design as their standard. (India.. GD palm frond Camo)
Point is once I get the ones I have done implemented I can work on plugging the holes one by one.
I'm about 2/3rds of the way through the list of nations and this is what my list of holes looks like.
edit : Removed list of holes..the finished list is far longer.
I just don't have a pattern similar enough to those to give them one at this point so I've given them placeholders til I get around to making a style thats closer to what they have. (other than the multicam.. but Im gonna just gonna make them a copy of the U.S. multicam with out the tac glasses)
I Might just stick the brits with the multicam variation since most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway.
HOPEFULLY I can finish implementing the textures I have done today and have a test version out for people to play around with sometime tonight.
P.S. northern europe is gonna be a pain in my arse.. they all have their own special camos..
