VTE: Code green

Hello,
I’am weapon modeller of the VTE Modification.
Here’s a small status report with things about the mod in the upcoming version

First, we will release a small hotfix for the weapons; we create sights for the K98, Itheca and Enfield. (Without sight they we’re unplayable before.
I also switched the K98 texture in a better one.

But here some facts about the upcoming versions,
In the next versions will be more and better weapons in the pack. I made that old OFP Import’s totally new and so we can say, that we’re May able to call us the “rh of ww2 weapons”
There will be a bunch of single and multi player missions too.

It's a bit low detailed isn't it? weirdsmiley.gif

Still, I suppose this is only the long distance LOD, right? smile.gif

Gentlemens!

That are not the models! That are the textures!
Since I have to work for 4 and since I'am new in texture making it take time biggrin.gif

The models are quite more detailed than the older one, a good example is the thompson, I made you a before/after screen. The first one is the new one and you see more details than in the older one (The first one even got 1074 points, in contrast to the older one with 500 Points)
So dont blame the models!

In fact that we still got no texture artist and I'am new in textures it takes time to make the textures in a good quality for me.

Nice how you describe 3 people.sad.gif

Yes, its hard at the moment in the mod. You know, I think even the BHD Mod got more people.
We are 3 Guys at the moment. From this 3 guys 1 Sound maker and 2 modeller, me and snakemen.
Snakemen is busy with the island and units I think, and the houses and some objects, so i have to make the whole weapon equipment, may some vehicles, and some objects by my own.
The Alpha was set up by one single men, Snakeman, its incredible how he managed it by his one man show.

I din't mean to offend you guys!

I know how you feel in this moment (We have the same problem, only 3 ppl working, I hope).
I said that cause the models were not fitted for an ArmA scenario (if they were like in the images), but since you told me they are not low-polys. smile.gif

We're switching the Vilas weapons to high resolution (And when I say high resolution I really mean this and not that low poly rhs things. Unfortuneately they're lagging on low hardware, so i think about to make 2 versions, one with the vilas ones and one with other ones.)
Here a wip

Why not just apply normal maps on the low poly weapons to make them look good? Besides, RHS weapons are really good. They're really well done. I didn't even know that they were... low poly... until you said it.

Optimization is everything. You don't need 15000 tris for an M16 or alike...

Yes, RH Weapons are very good and looking fine. Low Poly dont mean they look bad,

@Helpin' Hand
Yea you're right, but its necessary to increase the poly count. On the old models it isn't possible to make somethin' good with it,
But they're were some guys they even had problems with the old ones.
So if i have to increase the polycount fo' the other ones, why don't let it look a bit better so that you can see the difference.

If you say "The old one" please tell me why, I'am doing my best but i'm new in this,

Which one is the old one? They all look the same...
Also, you might want to rework the model, especially the hand grip. See here for reference: http://www.cybershooters.org/dgca/m16a1.htm

"Default one"

I like the old one better, to me it looks more like the actual M16A1, and not that much different in terms of detail to justify the difference in polycount. It is a little hard to judge though, seeing as the smooth/sharp faces seem to be missing.

"Note: Both are running very smooth"

Is that in a large mission, or by testing it with a single soldier in the editor? (That is a frequently made mistake)

I vote for the old one because the handguard looks a lot more like the real one smile.gif

no offense but i think you need to practice modeling a bit more and do a lot more research on what you are modeling. You need to optimise your model and put polys in where they are needed.
For instance the hand guard, its looking far to triangular and sharp. If i were you i would normal map the holes in and put more polys in to beveling off the sharp edges. The groves in the magazine can also be normal mapped on.
Also be careful when using the boolean tool, it is handy but it can make your model very messy.

Try this tutorial mate on modeling a rifle, its for free and its really good for getting the hand of 3dSM. Its what i first used when i started modeling
http://www.tutorialized.com/view/tutorial/...lil-Rifle/10790
Good luck
