Reidy Posted March 1, 2016 Share Posted March 1, 2016 So tonight the repository finally did the update of which we all knew was coming, entering a transition period between the now and then the end goal of the mods they wish to use. They main mod to leave our collection at this moment is the TRYK pack, with the new appearance of CUP Units, Weapons and Vehicles with their ACE compatibility mods also. I haven't really extensively looked into the CUP mods, exception of the terrains, until tonight where I spent a good amount of time until a point where I can truly say I've gathered an opinion of the mod. Personally I really don't like the weapons, and this is a huge down flaw to me as we will be using them quite often, we have SMA also however this pack mainly only contains assault rifles. The other weapons e.g. the SAW or other squad support weapons will be down to the CUP pack once we finally remove the RHS pack which used to provide our M249s and M240s for the MMG squad. The scopes and models for the gun, I can truly say are horrific after using SMA and RHS equivalents. The sounds also are unappetizing however this is a down to preference whereas the textures and overall quality of the weapons can be clearly seen and agreed. The clothing also shares this bad quality as well, and after speaking to many others about this they agree with the fact that the CUP uniforms are a bad quality from the modeling of how it fits onto the players body, all the way down to the textures used. Vests and Helmets likewise with a noticeable lack of helmets. This however is an issue that can be avoided with the confirmed fact of an Ahoy World Uniforms mod to release shortly to add back the advantages of TRYK, without the issues it brought with it. However this doesn't apply to the units that we will be pitched against. This I personally will view as a huge flaw within the Mod pack as such vast difference in the quality of the units. I personally don't like the CUP mod however this is a matter of opinion due to I don't believe in the re-occurrence of the ArmA 2 items into the ArmA 3 Game is a good idea, more of a "been there done that" as I've accumulated more hours on ArmA 2 than ArmA 3 so far. Along with my personal preferance of the A2 textures and quality of models doesn't fit into the Arma 3 environment as anyone whose played both the games can tell you, one of the huge differences between the two games is the Graphics within them. Whats the rest of the communities thoughts on the CUP mod now that most of us have had a hands-on experience with it?
