Royal Marines Conversion

A Skin Mod for Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat [MOD]

This is a replacement for all U.S. Marines in Insurgency to Royal Marines Commandos.

****************The Skin**************** This is a player skin that replaces all U.S. Marine textures (MARPAT) with the Royal Marines Commando Desert DPM textures. Everything has been reskinned, including the kevlar, to match the loadout of present Marine Commandos in the Middle East today. Every texture also includes normals. Maps are extremely large, which reveals more detail when moving closer to the character. Enjoy :D *****************Credits***************** Textures: antman311 Normal Maps: antman311 & KnifeInFace Guidance, Historical Accuracy, Reference Photos: Captain David Love - Former SBS (Special Boat Service) Commando and Royal Marines Commando that served two tours in the Middle East and trained along side with the SAS. I couldn't have finished this pack without his help. **************Installation*************** Extract the "materials" folder to... Z:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\YOURACCOUNTNAME\Insurgency\insurgency\ **************Release Notes************** You may not redistribute this conversion pack giving yourself credit, or anyone else that was not originally involved in the project. You may not sell this conversion pack to make any type of profit. If you desire to use this pack in a skin/mod pack of yours, please contact the authors first to make sure it is okay with them before you do.

    While I like the idea of the Royal Marines, the actual texture is quite lacking. They lack any sort of wear which is a huge draw back. They also feel quite cartoonish. I would really like a worn version of this to make it perfect.

    The textures are quite good, the details are great but i think it's way too dark and grey for desert environment.

    Ok, so here I go: Pros: It's a great looking skin, with awesome normals, and it definitely works for this setting. In my opinion, it's much better than the default skin, but at the moment, only truly so because of the normal maps. The normals really work for the benefit of the looks of this skin, as they create the great sort of bumpy depth illusion from fabric. As well, like every other pack you've shown me, this is a very complete pack, containing everything that it should. You've changed the Armor plates (crotch and neck), and made a custom Pack as well. It's great to see you put so much effort into these things. Cons: Some problems with it, are that it's too clean (even though I know you're currently fixing that, I'll still mention it here). It needs to have some dirt and grime, and if there's any blood, make it small cuts or the likes, as not every soldier sees combat, and not everyone who does gets shot, but pretty much everyone is going to scrape themselves on something or other. There aren't enough creases on the texture in the appropriate areas, such as the elbows and knees. It needs to look like it's a used uniform, and not a tube of fabric that's never been bent. Show that there is actually an elbow, and that the arm isn't just a tentacle that can curve instead of bend, if you understand what I mean. The normal maps, are awesome, my only grief with them, is that for my computer (which is a relatively good Gaming rig) has trouble running with them. They look great, but they slow your framerate by a lot. Improvements: Well, as I mentioned, you need to fix up the creases in the right areas, as well as add some dirt and grime to the skin, to show that the soldier has been running, jumping and crawling through the dirt. As well, the patches on the arms appear on both shoulders, but with one shoulder the right way, and the other reversed, which is probably the fault of the UV, but still, if you could fix that... Notes: This is a great skin, and I definitely recommend using it, at least once, if not forever. 9/10 from me. For anyone who wants to use this skin, but doesn't want to have the lag from the normal maps, add these lines to your Games launch settings:
    -mat_specular 0 -mat_bumpmap 0
    Note that it will disable all normal maps and specular effects on your skins, but it does increase perfomance.
