Default [Faction Proposal] Islamic Republic of Iran Army [Again]

Now I understand that there have been about three threads suggesting an Iranian faction in this very section in the last year, but I feel that considering all those attempts died in the water, a fresh thread with some real content was warranted. Now the basic argument for an Iranian faction goes like this (thanks to Storm-Mama for it ):

Quote:
Iran is a military powerhouse in the Middle East. Counted with paramilitary forces its got the largest armed forces in the world. If any middle eastern nation deserves to get its own faction in PR rather than being part of the MEC it's Iran.
An Iranian faction could act as a likely OpFor for the Israelis, NATO and even the MEC. They make use of a plethora of foreign technology from various eras, as well as some interesting indigenous designs. Luckily most of this stuff is already in PR, including the AH-1Y/Z SuperCobra, MiG-29, SU-25, T-72, SVD, G3, RPG-7 and BMP-2 (as of 0.95 if I'm not mistaken?). What I propose is the addition of either or both of these: an Islamic Republic of Iran Army (IRIA) faction and an Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) faction. The main work required for both would be this:

  • UVW mapping, texturing and animating of Khaybar Series of Assault rifles
  • UVW mapping, texturing and addition of CQ 5.56 parts onto current PR M16A1
  • Addition of M203 onto CQ 5.56
  • Addition of M203 onto G3 (low priority, HK79 can suffice for now)
  • Duplication and reskinning of vehicles
  • Reskinning of MEC soldiers with BDU and 3 Colour desert camo
  • HUD/Localisation work


I've made some changes and additions to Koroush47's design plan, considering he hasn't been on in a few months, I'd like to take charge of the push .

Design plan is here

Basically what I'd like to do right now is have a look at interest and see what people think of the idea right now. Considering two major assets that will define the faction are already well into production (by myself), I'd say progress has been made. If I were to finish the faction though, I would need people who are adept at skinning and someone who is familiar with the inner-workings of PR to get this thing really going. That's all for today, apologies to the moderators if this is one too many Iranian faction proposals.

Cheers,
Nick

No, it won't make v0.95

Good luck with this faction, as a community faction lead, I can tell you that you will have to face a huge amount of work if you want to bring this to PR. Gather some reliable and dedicated people aroung you and you'll be able to develop your faction.

Even if you are skilled in something you can't succeed if you're alone.

Edit : I read your list again, some new maps would be nice as well.

Are you honestly telling me this looks like crap?

http://usi.blacksandstudio.com/wp-co.../08/2_bmp2.jpg

Wolfi did a kickass skin on that. Its highly disrespectful to call someone's work crap like that, especially when it is clearly not.

I think its definitely a good idea, I just think the one main thing missing is maps. Sure you could replace Kashan etc with Iran, but new maps would be a much better approach. - Ninja'd by Hauteclocque

Once I get my current projects done I can lend a hand with UVWing and limited texturing if needed.

Samogon, please, moderate your comments...I would be really happy if you could produce such assets modeling and texturing wise, it's not the case yet.

That would be great Tim. I'll hit you up via PM if I need anything done in the near future.

Again, thanks for the interest , I wouldn't wanna poach any maps off the MEC so having something for these guys is top priority. Any sorta Middle-Eastern urban map would be good for the IRGC. Hit me up via PM if you wanna discuss more.
