Skin of Iranians is too dark
Reviewed, NormalPublic


the skin color of Iranian people is a little darker than Europeans, but in the game they are completely black. this is completely unauthentic and should be fixed with a more realistic skin color. in fact the skin tone of the Iranians in the early screenshots were much better.

Completely agree. Being Iranian myself that's one of the first things I noticed. The soldiers' skin is way too dark.

they probably hired many african mercenaries and soldiers

If you people bothered to check, the game has only black and white people faces at this time, I'm sure middle-eastern and asian complexions will be added to the head model selection later.

Edit: The iranian's dont even speak persian yet, it's clearny not finished.

Correct. I guess the middle eastern skins will be added at some later time.
Hopefully there will also be some skins with beards. :)

Agree with that, they look like negroes now.


There are asian, greek, persian heads. They are not listed in profile menu, but you can type their names in arma 3 profile.

I think it's the lighting and shading that is causing the problem, not the textures.
