  • Modset Culling

    With the 2019 modset needing completion, the first step is to cull off all the extra fat. The Admins are asking you what mods you can live without.

    Do consider if many missions were made with these mods, as this will render them out of action
    . Also, remember that we are asking for your thoughts on this but the final decisions will be made by the Admins with the Missions Makers help.

    here is the current list and their sizes:


    Current Modset:
    BAF Equipment - 536 MB
    BAF Units - 89.2 MB
    BAF vehicles - 1.13 GB
    BAF Weapons - 1.24 GB
    ACE - 146 MB
    ACE Placeables - 540 KB
    ACE AFRF Compat - 48 KB
    ACE GREF Compat - 16 KB
    ACE USAF Compat - 84 KB
    CBA - 2.13 MB
    CUP Vic Compat - 308 KB
    CUP Weap. Compat - 388 KB
    CUP Terrian Core - 8.58 GB
    CUP Terrains CWA - 3.21 GB
    CUP Terrains Maps - 3.17 GB
    CUP units - 2.86 GB
    CUP Vehicles - 5.48 GB
    CUP Weapons - 2.40 GB
    FFAA - 1.63 GB
    FFAA Compat - 192 KB
    Leskovets - 391 MB
    Isla Duala - 282 MB
    Jbad - 1.86 GB
    Lythium - 1.40 GB
    MBG CELLE - 446 MB
    MGB Buildings - 80.5 MB
    Medium Helicopters - 467 MB
    NIArms Core - 257 MB
    NIArms FAL - 95.2 MB
    NIArms G3 - 212 MB
    NIArms M60 - 33.1 MB
    PKL - 1.92 GB
    POPFOR - 1.44 GB
    Uncut - 569 MB
    RHS AFRF - 5.10 GB
    RHS GREF - 1.86 GB
    RHS USAF - 5.20 GB
    ShackTac - 196 KB
    TFAR - 158 MB

    IFA Lite - 10.3 GB
    LEN Weapons - 206 MB
    UNSUNG - 14.2 GB

    TOTAL = 76.431902 gigabytes


    I understand that some choose not to download the special modset and miss the mission nights that run with this modset, so I guess, technically, you could forget the special set in your final calculation of modset size.

    TOTAL = 66.66841 gigabytes

    I could be persuaded to remove the CUP Vehicles, Weapons and Units but going through the footage for the year in review I was surprised how many assets I saw being used. So, for now, I would be happy to keep it.

    As for adding mods,
    I wouldn't add really anything, maybe a few new good maps which wouldn't
    be more than 1 GB

      I would vote for dropping the double ups - if RHS has most of the things CUP does or vice verser - we could lose those - It will however make my newly minted missions defunct.

      Otherwise my votes are for removing: MBG CELLE, FFAA, Leskovets.

        TOTAL = 41.22GB Regular Modset (No IFA, no Unsung)
        (both Special Events Mods [IFA + Unsung] total = 67.16GB)


        Only change is removal of Celle and keeping of Medium Helicopters and NIArms M60s to allow cold war weapons without the need for Unsung for those who don't download Unsung - they can still play post-Vietnam Cold War missions. Celle is quite a dated map now and can almost argue to keep Leskovets in it's place as our Cold War map (or a newer map with similar theme that can fit in the modset).If 33.1MB is a real killer then M60s can be let go since a lower quality version is in CUP.

        I'm tempted to keep Lythium as it's our only Mountain Warfare map but it is a large mod - I'll see how people feel about it. Hate to lose the mission I have there but it's just 1 mission.

            I would like to see the removal of CUP assets mainly because there is a ton of double up with RHS and BAF but also the fact that it is collectively > 10GB. RHS is also adding many of the things already in CUP and in objectively higher quality. On the note of quality getting rid of BAF would mean deleting a very high quality mod that has a lot of potential within our modset.

            Leskovets is a pretty ugly looking map and could probably be replace with something more interesting.

            MBG is quite outdated at this point and could be replace with Rosche, Germany.

                Most if not all the maps can go imo. i know this will cut a lot of missions but adding some new maps could be cool to spice things up
                anything vietnam as i dont really enjoy those missions since there are so many but i usually dont go anyway.
                get rid of the double ups with RHS and CUP

                  I'm with others in regards to CUP assets. The maps are classic but there is indeed a fair amount of overlap with equipment. I was on the fence in regards to Uncut but now they've started to do some serious development with it I'd like to keep it if possible.

                    This would mean no further WW2 or Vietnam missions which I understand that a few people seem to enjoy however it is my own personal preference that I no longer enjoy those particular types of missions. You may notice that I have left both CUP, BAF and RHS in my personal cull list as I believe these mods can compliment each other well and if missions makers want to avoid using mods from either they can simply choose not to load that mod when using the A3 Launcher.
