SJB SAS Addon v1.1
Brought to you by Jackal326 and SafetyCatch.

IMAGES OF V1.1
DESERT UNITS FROM V1.1


WOODLAND UNITS FROM V1.1




The SJB SAS Pack v1.1 contains Special Air Service operators in both Patrol Kit and Assault Kit with the requisite camouflages for use in both temperate woodland and arid region environments. These units are high fidelity representations of modern SAS operators circa 2006-present, using equipment sourced from photographs and information proprietary to the SJB mod team. Currently the units are equipped with BIS weaponry. Later versions of the pack will make use of the upcoming SJB Weapons Packs which will include weapons such as the L119A1 (Diemaco SFW) intended for use with the SJB SAS Pack. Also included are "ACE Compatible" Units, which have had their backpacks removed using hiddenselections to allow them to utilise ACE's Backpacks system without too much clipping occurring as a result of wearing "two" backpacks.
However, please note:
*** THE UNITS DO NOT REQUIRE 'ACE' AT ALL, THERE ARE NO 'ACE' DEFINES INCLUDED - ACE IS OPTIONAL ***

Addon Contents:
- sjb_sas.pbo - The unit PBO
- sjb_sas.pbo.SJB.bisign - The signature file
- SJB.bikey - The SJB Key, for use on dedicated servers
NOTE: This is a newer version of the key to that packaged with the SJB Sub-Machinegun Pack, as I've since upgraded to Vista and unfortunately lost the old signature files. As such, this new Key probably (read: definately) wont work with the SMG Pack. If you currently use the SMG Pack on your server, and also wish to use the SAS Pack, I'd suggest sacrificing the SMG pack, as they will (at some point) be updated using the new key, and hopefully fixing bugs etc. I offer no guarantees as to when this update to the SMG Pack will take place, only so far as to say it will happen eventually.

Credits:
Jackal326: Model editing and new normal-maps.
SafetyCatch: Mega work on the textures.
Johnny: Original models and textures.
Jennifer/Neph/Retro (Same person, different nicknames): Original night-vision and headmount models and textures.
RCIR Squad: BETA Testing as well as suggestions and ideas that were for the most-part ignored smile.gif

Change Log:
> PUBLIC RELEASE V1.1 (THIS RELEASE - 11/6/09):
- Completely overhauled textures using overlays and other Photoshop trickery I don't understand - Thanks SafetyCatch.
* Re-did all shirt/trouser textures.
* Revised Vest texture, improving overall look and changing drag-strap etc.
* Re-made the majority of the normal maps reflecting the changes made to layout of the textures.
- Implemented XML Arm-Patches onto the right sleeve of all units.

> PUBLIC RELEASE V1.0 (5/4/09):
- Finalised textures and packaged for release.

> BETA v1.4 (UNRELEASED INTERNAL BETA):
- Fixed texture-layering issue with gloves slightly over-lapping radio texture on desert units.
- Made Desert Patrol Medic's backpack OD instead of black.

> BETA v1.3 (24/4/09):
- Fixed a few mapping issues with the ACU shirts around the neck (correct the scaling of the ACU pattern.
- Added "ACE Compatible units" in their own grouping - only difference is the backpacks and a few pouches have been removed, to allow the use of the ACE Backpack system.
- Tweaked desert DPM slightly, more tan, less white.

> BETA v1.2 (16/4/09):
- Added Desert Units.
- Added Sig Sauer P226 proxy to all holsters, replacing the default M9. Looks awesome,
- Fixed the numerous ST Errors caused by the P226s in the arma.RPT file (hopefully).
- Fixed yet more shadow bugs (hopefully the last of them now).
- A few model tweaks * Grenadier's SORDIN headset moved away from his neck to lessen the clipping issues.
* Pouch position and rotation on various units.
- Fixed the lack of MP5 magazines in the ammo stash.
- Other crap I can't remember.

> BETA v1.1 (20/3/09):
- Added Woodland Assault Units and Backpack Stash (Ammo and Weapon 'crate').
- Fixed various erroneous selections that were a hang-over from Johnny's original SF Models (distorted pouches and lower LOD issues).
- Added DPM Backpacks and tweaked other backpack textures to be less sh*t.
- Tweaked unit-specific textures (added OD windbreaker to OP, varying DPM generations for variety).
- Fixed a few texture issues (DPM Backpacks, Operator trousers).
- Fixed a few shadow bugs.

> BETA v1.0 (5/2/09) Initial Release:
- Pack consisted of just the Woodland Patrol units.

I doubt they will be due to some things that cropped up with the original creator etcetera. Although that could of changed since I last spoke to Jackal.

Jonny, SafetyCatch and myself recently (i.e. a few weeks ago) had a group conversation on MSN and were able to sort out the issues regarding porting to ArmA2. The project is a go for ArmA2. I've managed to get the units ingame, after a few config tweaks (and a LOT of swearing). I'd post screenshots, but all that happens with printscreen in ArmA2 for me is a big black screenshot, which is about as useful as a chocolate fire-guard. I'm too lazy to use FRAPs, so I'll need to find a work-around. The full release of course is dependant upon the release of the updated Binarize tool and TexView by BIS, as neither Johnny or myself are prepared to release the units in an unbianrized state (Jonny's reasons are self-explanatory, mine are routed more in the huge performance hit I've noticed with unbinarized models, not to mention the huge *.RPT files that results, as well as the massive file-size of the resulting *.PBO).
