Vietnam: The Experience (VTE) has been long in the making. Basically all started when SEB NAM Pack 2.0 (NP2) needed an expansion. First came inside version of NP2 with JAM weapons which SelectThis (original maker of NP2) created, after that NAM Pack Air Module (NPAM) was born.
NPAM however got stuck little bit during the development and after some discussions SelectThis nominated Snake Man to lead the project forward, from there we formed VTE as you see it today.
VTE is the leading, most detailed and the most comprehensive Vietnam War modification for OFP.
There is enough items included to cover all aspects of mission making. Its not only about numbers, this mod has been extensively tweaked for example on the P3D models, many fixes has been done to the originals ensuring that this mod will not drop framerates or require powerful computer. Of course a mod of this magnitude and jungle vegeation will require decent computer and quite much RAM, but the point is that VTE has been specificly tweaked to make sure there are no usual addon making errors included. Many hours have been spent in O2 to fix all kinds of modeling / binarize errors to ensure thing are done "right" way.
There are alot of single missions and few campaigns available. There is enough to play for months and we also include alot of support for mission makers with the items found in mission editor.

Objects & Textures
We include over 400 new objects including vegetation (bushes, trees, grass, palms, jungle canopy, rocks etc), civilian housing and military objects. The ground is covered with many brand new textures. Also there is the good old SEB objects and textures present for the original Ia Drang and few other islands. The objects have been now streamlined and optimized, they look better and should give better framerates.
All that material just for editor? Noope, we include 112 single missions, 14 MP missions and 8 campaigns. Brand new mission to get onboard was Vietnam Tour of Duty dynamic campaign based on GDCE by Kutya.
We have also included several radio identities and group names/colors for units to use. There will be unknown number of music tracks featuring some NAM sixties oldies music. Mist and NVA/VC speech are enabled in missions by gamelogic.
Then we have the old NP2 weapons of course as backbone but we are using JAM3 for the weapons, exception are those which do not have JAM3 ammo available and there is no real close match.
Required addons are as follows; Bn880 tracers, CoC Unified Artillery, CoC Mines, CoC Divers, JAM3 and USMC markers.
