Hi shadics, welcome to the pit!

There is a setting in Ja2_options.ini, CAMO_KIT_USABLE_AREA, which controls how much of a merc's body can be covered by camouflage kits (the rest then has to come from armour or LBE gear). Set it to 100 to get camo kits to work as you described.



Saren threw his head back and screamed in impotent fury, before falling to his throne, head in his claws, trembling in horrified disbelief.

Then he heard a faint chime as Sovereign subscribed to her ECHO channel.

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.

Just keep in mind that 100 minus the value in CAMO_KIT_USABLE_AREA defines how much camo you can get from your gear. So if you set CAMO_KIT_USABLE_AREA = 100 your armor and LBE won't give you any camo at all.
Camo from armor and LBE is permanent but you will have to refresh camo from camo kits once in a while. This could become a problem if you can't manage to acquire enough camo kits.

thank you for the answer, i don't want to break the balance, so you nerfed it to 5% to make the game more balanced? if i buff it to 10% should be ok? so it will not be overperforming

Actually I wouldn't call it "nerfed". The idea behind CAMO_KIT_USABLE_AREA was to limit camo kit usage to visible skin parts of the body. The rest is covered by clothing and armor. The 5 percent are basically face, neck and hands.
You will need to get proper armor and LBE to cover the rest. It's not hard to reach 50+ percent camo with proper gear and without using camo kits at all. With Ghillie suits you can get very high camo values but these come a bit later in the game.

Thanks for the help, the LBE work really good, but all my mercenaries looks green now. How i could make them stay normal, without changing the camo%?

In Ja2_Options.ini there is an entry "SHOW_CAMOUFLAGE_FACES = TRUE". Just set this to FALSE.

Hello Shadics and welcome to the Bear's Pit,

In Vengeance: Reloaded Mod we even set this value to 20 for balancing reasons so don't worry that you break balance with 10.


Best regards; Schein...

i'm not referring to the face, i'm talking about the spriters, is there any way to don't modify the suit, i mean keep the original suit even if they pass 50% of the camouflage ?

As soon as total camo reaches 50 percent the uniform will be displayed in dark green. It's not possible to modify this without code changes.
