  1. I see some inspiration being taken from the MG42/M60 series machineguns. Makes me like it so much more. If you added a fixed, proprietary bipod, I'd recommend something that folds up onto the sides (Similar to the FAMAS series rifles, or VLTOR bipods) Of course, this is entirely up to you. I'm hyped! Great work guys!!!
  2. Looks great. It's gonna have a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny like the others, with a removable scope, correct?
  3. I'd rather have the Longsword over the Scorp. :P But yeah, I understand that they're a small mod team. of course doing it for free.
  4. "Helmet NVG" would work. Then again, couldn't a similar thing that was implemented with the ODST helmets in the mod be done with the Marine helmets? I still feel, the simplest way, is to just model the eye piece as NVG.
  5. Okay, fine. Fair enough. I just think it looks absolutely hilarious to have 3 versions of the shotgun, all with different camouflage paint jobs, if you aren't going to give other weapons the same treatment.
  6. Why won't you just accept my offer, or tell me why it can't be? :I
  7. Uh, no. You entirely misinterpreted what I meant lol. I meant position it as an attachment on the scope, not a keybind.....currently it is replacing an object that would be important for the operation of the rifle, and the rifle it's based on. ---------- Post added at 05:24 ---------- Previous post was at 05:22 ---------- Hey man, I offered to give a go at texturing the paint :P Not trying to steal your job or anything, it would just be a template, or something you could overlay onto the original design, possibly could make it multi-layer so you could modify it later for any colors and combinations. I'm willing to help. ---------- Post added at 05:36 ---------- Previous post was at 05:24 ---------- The military assigns photographers to specific units that follow regulation more or less, they don't want to look bad, so it can be tricky finding pictures of soldiers field modifying their weapons. But if the Germans, Russians, French, Italians, Swedish......Dutch......English........blaahhh......are any indication, it happens. More frequently than photographed. Even on guns prone to heat issues....*cough* That's Bundeswehr. Most German troops have far, far more heavily painted rifles. Australian SF. This crazy Russian Alfa member, who was supposed to use a black rifle for the meeting of Putin, but didn't give no care. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5d/Alpha_group.jpg (157 kB) Although, it is more often for SF units to paint their weapons than it is for an average joe. Doesn't mean it doesn't deserve a place in the mod. Geez, it was even in ArmA 2 to begin with, and it's in ArmA 3 as well. The "Afghan and back" look would be cool, but really- there's no point. May as well just camouflage the gun. Far simpler, and one could argue it's much more worth their time. Besides! It's purely preference! Why does it matter if you see black guns more often than the camouflaged ones? If you want the black gun, use the black gun. It's not like it's horribly unbelievable for soldiers to modify their guns. They did it during WW2, they do it now, they're gonna do it in the future. No matter what. Even if the military made it so the guns had some sort of liquid repelant on it, they'd scrape it off and paint it :P I'm sure there are plenty of people who will use the "stock" guns. From my experience in ArmA 2, I saw quite a few people running black rifles when the camo ones were available.
  8. Another thing, I noticed my Sniper rifle statement kinda got swept under the rug. :P
  9. Single-tone guns are cool, I admit, but in reality field-modified camouflage gets much more advanced than that, I'm willing to aid in sharing some images of camouflaged guns. This period in the Halo universe, as we all know, is very gritty. The guns look far too clean for what they would have, in reality, been through, and I think we should have multiple patterns for different conditions. Doesn't have to be too advanced, heck- I'd be fine with patterns just like you gave the Shotguns. It's not a priority, of course, I understand that. I just wanted to bring it up. I'm sure Theronnett would agree, if that means a thing :cool: Here's an example, from Russian Alfa unit. http://i.imgur.com/35rOeJ2.jpg (112 kB) I'd be happy to, since it's not as big of a role (this tiny part), texture the camo patterns for you. Not sure what format ArmA 3 uses, but if it can be drawn up in Photoshop and converted, I'd be willing. Still, keep up the good work guys.
  10. That's Iraq though. Similar situation, but not exactly the same. Insurgents and Insurrectionists are somewhat different. At this point, I'm pretty sure the UNSC was bombing insurrectionist locations, no matter who was at risk.
  11. Last I checked the UNSC wasn't too worried about breaking up protests in a peaceful, or less than lethal manner.
  12. I know that, but so are PDW and carbines. Shotguns are mostly used for shooting locks/hinges off the doors in a breaching situation. My point is, why would anyone want a shotgun, something with limited range and accuracy, over something far more versatile? Preference is the key word.
  13. I am 6'3" as well, but I'm joining the Marines as an 0311. What about a carry handle option for the Assault Rifle? I can see that being lore-friendly, and useful for people who prefer height for their iron sights and no obscured vision from the scope.
  14. Okay, fair enough. Why would anyone use a shotgun when they can use an assault rifle or SMG instead?
  15. Because, why not? That's like saying "you shouldn't have an MP5K PDW stockless as a primary because it has no stock" I don't have a personal reason for it, but I don't see why it shouldn't be there. I'm not demanding, nor requesting, more so just throwing out an idea.
  16. Ah, never mind then. Should have collapsed/extended stock SMG versions for primary.
  17. I'm simply using the logic you stated gave me to use lol.
  18. MA5B were the standard issue weapons, and therefore it wouldn't make sense, based on that logic, for the outer colonies to have them issued. Last I checked, the MA37 is far older, outdated.
  19. It wasn't an M4 during the Vietnam war. So, that's a fallacy. They had the CAR 15 and XM Series, and the La France M16K. M4 didn't actually exist until early 90's, and CAR 15 were still more common by mid 90's. MA5C, not MA5D. MA5D is again, dumb 343 logic. MA5B already existed, why did we need the MA5D?
  20. I understand that it takes place during the Insurrection periods, after all, Op Trebuchet was the final assault on the Erridanus Insurrection. The final blow. I think the MA5C should be left out. That was the Covenant war, not the Insurrectionist period. MA37 was shown being used by both Army and Marines, however I feel like, ignoring 343's Anniversary BS, the events on Reach lead the Marines to outfit their troops with whatever they could find, since it was a planet the MA37 may have been more commonplace than the MA5B, which would explain why the MA5B wasn't present at all, in the theater the main characters were involved in.
  21. SpaceNavy, you are bae. You still never accepted my friend request on Steam </3. Yeah, 343 design changes make no sense and conflict with actual canon too much.
  22. I just feel like Halo: Reach should be the primary reference for all of the equipment in this game, with books/comics coming in second, Halo Wars too since it's considered canon (ignoring the gameplay elements needed for the game to work, like Spartan shields). I would love to see the original Marine uniform from Halo: CE being implemented, since the Pillar of Autumn was an outdated vessel, we could actually argue that the equipment employed by the crew was old as well, or of a different variation. Maybe redesigned a bit, but the original appearance is still very cool. I still wish to see the Marines/Army eye piece show up as a replacement for the current NVG. Really kills immersion atm.
  23. Yes, but the Mi-24 is built and operated using a totally different logic from the Pelican. Soviet doctrine was far different from the UNSC's, and the UNSC obviously takes queues from the US Armed Forces. The Mi-24's secondary role is transport, it is not used in that role as a primary. Normally, the cargo bay is only used by SF. The Pelicans primary role, gunship or not, is to transport infantry and vehicles. Hind can't transport vehicles. Ejection seat is cool, but I meant an injured pilot. If your copilot gets shot in the stomach, you normally don't eject and leave your passengers to fall to their death....
  24. I just feel that the original design was 100% more believable. Yes, the current design would make total sense if it was an in-atmosphere only aircraft. But since it is capable of leaving atmosphere and traversing space, the original design still makes more sense for what it is. The rocket pods of the original were legitimate, the turret on the nose made sense, and the gun in the rear was effective. This is true to real military aircraft. As a veteran you should be able to acknowledge the value of a crew being able to tend to an injured pilot in a transport aircraft, such as the MH-60, or UH-1, or CH47, or Mi-8. Not only that, but communication would be far more efficient, etc, just like in real life. The pilots would also be less exposed in an evacuation situation. 343 has a lot of illogical, unrealistic, more sci-fi like designs.
