Vietnam: The Experience (VTE) is the leading, most detailed and comprehensive Vietnam mod for OFP, ArmA and ArmA 2.



ArmA early screenshots:
A4
O1 Birddog
M79 grenade launcher
VietCong face
CH-34
GI Joe
NVA
M113
Weapons 21st June 2007
Huey's

ArmA engine will allow us to create incredible looking jungle without such CPU slowdowns as seen with OFP (not to say that VTE-OFP was lagging).

Final ArmA version of our mod was released on Jun 14th, 2010.

Official VTE homepage can be found here and official ArmA VTE forum here.

Online manual here.

Please report bugs to VTE in DevHeaven project page.

Awesome! biggrin.gif

Out of interest, will you be able to convert the islands from VTE over directly? Or will you have to remake them? I haven't had a chance to play with the new tools yet.

Hi, i think that "my" M1911 A1 looks better than yours, if you want... you can take it and make it yours, PM King Hommer if you want; but if you take it
with the model parts that other known people made, then credit 'em. The known names are in the readme.txt inside the .rar file. Let's C ya

well, for what I know about island making for ArmA, with visitor 3 it's not possible to import old OFP WRP, due to the format, and the size (in ArmA with a 512x512 and 10m grid size, you can have a 5120x5120 island)
correct me if i'm wrong m8 smile.gif

Yes all the new VTE islands have been converted to ArmA, using WrpTool and 1 texture method, not Visitor 3 and the satellite layer thingy. The islands is where I base my claims about that we can create nice jungles, because they wont cause any slowdowns in my computer which is very poor.

Vietnam: The Experience modification from OFP is now on ArmA, we have already released quietly two full pre-alphas and few hotfixes. We are working very hard to fix the ported OFP models and tweak the config.









[mg]http://tactical.nekromantix.com/arma/screenshots/VTE-0116.jpg[/img]

We cannot do this alone, we dont have the modeler and texturer we need at the moment. If anyone wants to help, please contact us in our web page or forums here at armedassault.info or email us directly at tactical at nekromantix dot com

Thank you and remember, Vietnam needs you smile.gif

I can fully port models from OFP, today I even created CH-47 Chinook second doorgun setup, what I'm looking for is a "real" modeler, compared to my skills.

But dont you already work in Black Hawk Down mod? Or is that mod sort of slow going (or something), that you have time to edit other models too?

yeah, you are right, but I can handle more things than only one once... tiredsmiley.gif

anyway, I asked only cause I saw that you were looking for helpers, didn't see Real modellers... for that indeed I could not help, since I'm working hard at the BHD MOD. So I thought that you could need some help...
Ok, no prob smile.gif

What models could you port? What "level" this port would be, just basic p3d or working ingame without errors etc?

You dont happen to have in your various project or elsewhere, anykind nice Vietnam material which we could use?

I made the Ia Drang Map for OFP, with various NAM models, including bunkers.
smile.gif
You could use them freely, as they come also from Thone2000 objects, but I modified them to fit better the scene (btw, don't worry, Thone2000 objects are freely to use he said, so I corrected them wink.gif)

Yeah I'm able to import models (P3D's) without errors, adding Materials, creating materials.

I think he's trying to insinuate that the unsung, while it is a good mod, is somehow better than VTE.
Blasphemy! ohmy.gif

While the Unsung does have good quality addons and units and nice fancy scripts, IMHO it lacks the diversity seen in VTE. Which probabley isn't a good arguement, but when it comes down to it, it's probabley better to have a a diverse selection of good quality units that go together well, than a small selection of high quality addons. Some people don't seem to realise that there is a point were something can be too detailed.

No offence is intended to the Unsung. I just like VTE a lot! biggrin.gif

Where can I download these?

I recall long time ago you doing some Ia Drang work, in fact I remember some black (nighttime) video, but cant recall if I actually downloaded something (no idea what filename to search in my OFP DVDR catalogs).

Hey! Creating materials is just the kind of work I'd want to get done now. Could you help with that?

The helmet of the grenadier is Queens Gambit must be helpful in modeling the GI helmet, it looks really good in QG, so I can't wait for your GIs. I was an Unsung guy in OFP, looking forward to trying VTE now!
