Sorry for not being around much lately but I thought I'd pop in to show some new work in progress. Long overdue and I've got a lot of catching up to do!

Some new W.I.P. captures...

SCAR-L
I've more or less been shy about modeling prototype weapons but I have high confidence that the SCAR platform will make it to full production. I still need to add some rol-marks/etching to the blank are on the outside of the mag. well but I need to research to get an idea of what will go there assuming it makes it into service.
For now it's using my M4 anim. rig but I will change things up for it as development continues. I am developing the rifle/EGLM files in a way that wil make it easier to export an .X file with primary/secondary fire in the same file. Usless for FPSC users but possibly handy for devs. using DBP or other engines.




SCAR-H
This is the 7.62mm version of the above rifle platform.
I need to chang the mount on the DMR from screws to throw-levers to clear space for the charging handle.
Textures are swappable so that the tan, black or two-tone maps can be used with any of the released SCAR weapons.




P226 and GI 1911A1
The P226 is new and the 1911A1 is a revision. I wanted to offer a more classic-looking 1911 than the one in MP9.




P90
I've gotten several requests for this. Most of them from Airslide. I'll be making four versions awailable; normal, suppressed, dual normal and dual suppressed.
I pondered doing an SG-1 version with all the crap on it but with an optic mounted on a riser it's just really tall and awkward loking in the game camera. I might at some later time do a version with the flat-top which has become available in recent years as I think that would look better and help offset polys needed for the optic.




M203 (Stand-Alone)
Sort of a rehash but I like this because it is sort of like a modern M79 as far as game mechanics go. This version has a reflex optic quadrant sight. I might also release a version with only the ladder sight.




M32
I had originally wanted to do this when I was making stuff for MPs 9/10 but ran out of time. I think it's good for a few reasons that I waited. I think it's executed better than I could have a year ago. Also, FPSC seems less buggy now with Flak. I've done a fair amount of testing and it seems stable enough to release.
There are two versions at this time. The frst is the standard U.S. issued version. The second is shorer and has no butt.
The black and tan textures are interchangable.




M16s
Yes... sigh... More M16 variants
XM177E2(commando), M16A1, M16A2 and M16A2/M203.
These are more old-school than the ones in MPs 9/10. There wll also be an M16A1/M203 once I get around to modeling the quadrant sight which clips to the carry handle. I should have done that version first since it's probably the most famous ar far as movies go.
These are on old rigs for now. I'll tweak anims later but these are fairly low priority to me.




870P
Classic-looking police/riot shotgun. Uses the MCS animations. Yes, I know 870Ps come stock with a short pump handle but I like the looks of the extended sporting pumps and I wanted an excuse to do semi-fancy checkering instead of booring slots.





That's it for now. I plan to make most if not all of these available this spring/summer although I need to upload some test files to the TGC store soon before Rick blacklists me.

I really apreaciate all the people who have bought MPs 9 and 10 so far. These weapons and others secretly and not-so-secretly being developed are meant to build upon the weapons included in those two packs. I plan to develop an enhanced arm rig this spring so that I can add more melee weapons and rifles with traditional (non-pistol-grip) stocks.

UPDATE APRIL 09 2008

Did someone ask for melee weapons?

I sidestepped a bit and banged these new melee weapons out. They are fully complete with VWEAPs, entities, etc. I bit the bullet and extended the arm mesh to go up to mid-bicep (used to stop just short of the elbow) and added elbow and uper arm bones to my animation rig. This allows me more flexibility with "reaching into the screen". Something I couldn't do well before and the primary reason melee weapons were limited in MPs9/10. Tee texture mirrors at the extension point, so no UV stretching and looks OK with the human and zombie arm textures.

All of these melee weapons include additional animations:

All include a generic block/parry animation (commented out in gunspec). I know there's no support for this now but who knows where FPSC and the various source mods will eventually go?

Additionally...

The Combat Knife and Chef Knife include both a stabbing and slashing attack animations. The Combat Knife defaults to slashing and the Chef Knife defaults to stabbing.

The Butterfly Knife includes animations for a thrusting attack (default) as well as a slashing attack.

The Nightstick has three attack animations; A twirling strike (default), a jabbing attack and a stiff-arm attack.

These have all had their animations developed using AirMod as the testbed to eliminate any animation popping which shows up in timer based enviroments. They also include AirMod lazy gun settings as well. They have been tested in regular FPSC also.

These melee weapons are all semi-auto fire (unlike my Katana). When a full version of AirMod is near completion, I will consider adding automatic sequences.


Ahyhow, here are the new pics....

These are.... Beautiful .... The best gun models I've ever seen....

Are you going to sell them? Commercial or non Commercial use? I could really use these for my game that's being made. Secret project right now, It's a commercial game, that's all I can say right now. I would really like this to be under $20 USD. But at the quality, I would pay a full $40 buck USD for this.

The hands are the same for 9/10 compatibility. There were a few scavanged bits of mesh but these are mostly new. The M16s and 1911A1 and 870P have the largest portions of recycled content.

Quote: "Do all weapons have a dual wiled option.. that would be nice"


No. There is another weapon not shown but in the pipeline with plans for dual wield but at this time I am holding off on going dual with most weapons for various reasons.

Quote: "are these goin on the TGC store"


That is the plan. I'll also be putting up some of the content from MPs 9/10 starting with some of the optional accessory versions to make things easier for those who have had problems. I'l also put up some user requests for minor tweak versions (ie additional versions with suppressors, etc) and a couple of weapons which were previously shown but unreleased. At least, that's my plan at this time.

Thanks for the comments. Nice to see some familiar users are still around and good to see some new-to-me ones as well.

I want some of whatever you are on....

EAI,
You know I am buying...I have two questions.
1. Are you selling these as individual weapons,as a pack or both?
2. Is there any chance that you are going to release gloveless hand textures for the weapons?
While I could retexture them myself there is no way on Earth that I could come close to making them even close to the same quality as yours.
One way or the other you have my cash...as usual.You make the best weapons...

Excellent stuff Errant, good to see you're still alive.

I noticed for the P90 magazine you're going for the full opaque black. I'm currently making a Vietnam era M16A1, but I really doubt mine will look anywhere near as good as yours.

Just one small tiny crit, the M16 body looks a bit too clean, unless that was your intention.

Look forward to seeing more as always.

Best.

Fred,
These are planned to be individual. Although I would like to do another pack, I don't know if TGC would be up for that.

Fred and LT tatters,
I have no plans for gloveless hands on version 1.x of this arm rig/mesh. The mesh itself has glove geometry so the best I can offer are the fingerless gloves included in MPs 9/10. There is also not enough geometry IMO to pull off a realistic looking nekkid hand.
I plan v2 to be more robust but will not be compatable with these and previous weapons. I want to some civil war era and other historical stuff at some point and that will require gloveless and sleeved arms. When these are done, released weapons can be retrofitted.

OpFor,
Thanks.
Yes, I went opaque on the P90 mag but will also offer the standard look as an alternate texture. It drives me batty to see ammo that doesn't deplete.
It's too clean because you've been stealing my photoshop mojo! Good eyes though as yes, you are correct. I have yet to put any stampings/roll-marks on the A1 and A2 lowers and these are the base textures. I'll add some more grit later though not as much as in 9/10. I hope you won't get too mad at me if I make some M14s/M25s at a later point I've been wanting to build one since I bought an M1A a year or so ago and fell in love with the designs of John Garand but never got around to it.

edit
Keo C,
I don't intend to operate a comercial site at this time. These will be through TGC store. If you have a SOPMOD configuration you are looking for but was not offered in 9/10, please let me know and I will, if possible, put those on the store as well. I orchestrated the SOPMOD models in a way that is friendly to accessory swapping. The only issue is polycount if too much stuff is added. For example, I have a really cool version set up like USMC VIP protection with ACOG, bipod, PEQ and supressor but it dogs a bit so I have no plans to release at this time.

Keo C,
Wow. Haven't seen that image in a while. Some of the variants listed are still on the back-burner lol.
The CQBR made it into one of the packs pretty much as-is. I'll plan to offer some of the alternate color schemes now that I've got a better method for doing tan color schemes that look allright. There are several RO635 and 633s which were never released. I'll look into what will be needed to get them up to snuff.

Quote: "I'd ask at your forums, but you don't seem to be accepting new members."


I think it's possible to sign up on that board still. I'ts mostly abandoned now and spambots outnumber humans by about 700:1.
I check it only a couple times a month, on average. There is some content visible only to members.

I put up a general request thread on my sub-board over at BDG.
http://www.blackdracogames.com/associates.html
Anyone should feel free to post any and all requests there.
Eventually I plan to migrate the services offered such as work crit and reference help to the BDG sub-board.

puppy of kosh, let me know if you have a preference. I have so many M16/M4 variants and limited bandwidth for uploading.

Those are freakin' awesome! No, really, that's almost R6V quality right there. Those guns are truly marvelous and I'm loving the P90!

Will you be making an Uzi, an MP5K, a UMP45 or some other sub-machine-guns? I'd love to see that from you!

Oh, and a question, you've been talking about MP9&10, which made me wonder, will these be free for the buyers of MP9&10? Yeah, it's heroine, but seriously, I'd like some clarification.

I felt the same enthusiasm, you're not alone.

EAI- I don't know if you're open to suggestions, but if you made a decent Drum-Fed Thompson SMG like the ones in the old mafia movies, I would definitely buy it.

i want to game is correct. If you have MPs9/10, these new weapons won't look out of place and you can use the bonus hand maps included with those packs or custom user made skins.

For users wondering about customized SOMPMOD weapons, check out this guide I put together:



Some of the components are incomplete but you can get the jist of what I've got to offer. Obviously, some items are mutually exclusive. There are other combinations that just make for poor ergonomics or are too resource hungry.

Quote: "PS: I forgot to ask before, when is summer/spring over there in...
well, wherever it is you are."


Spring is just now starting.

Quote: "I'm willing to donate some of mine to support great work."


Thanks for the offer but I should clarify. These modifications will be uploaded to the TGC Store and made available for sale there. So, I'm not concerned about storage space. My problem is that I am on dialup at my current location and it is not convienient for me to upload every possible combination.

Quote: "Will you be making an Uzi, an MP5K, a UMP45 or some other sub-machine-guns?"


MeZoFoRtE , I'll take your suggestions into consideration. I'm going to focus first on getting this crop of weapons ready. The MP-7 is currently at the head of my que for SMGs.

Quote: "Sorry that was rather childish of me"


Airslide, I expect no less LOL

Zaibatsu, It's on my backburner list for now. What I need to know from you is if it's much of an isue for the hands to have gloves. Have you ever seen that photo of the collection of siezed weapons from John Dillinger's gang? Some day I want to model all of those as well as the Barrow Gang weapons. However, I'm planning to hold off untill I have an arm rig that that supports sleeves and gloveless hands.
