Thought I'd create a thread for people that are working on something which isn't complete yet, or that they want feedback on.

The Ithaca 37 was the second model I ever made, I've redone it now for the third time (IIRC). I am playing with the idea of starting a small "self-defense" mod, as I loved the mission in Resistance where you just had the Kozlice to defend yourself. Nothing much, just a few hunting rifles and maybe a hand gun or two.

2196 polygons (still need to run it through for optimizing though).



I've decided not to post pictures on other large forums anymore, as alot of people are just plain rude.

looks pretty sweet, what program you use? I'm still looking for a free and easy to use one that uses most common formats.
Trying out Blender3D at the moment and using SketchUp for Architechture style design plots etc etc.

IIRC I have a CStorm model on my HDD on the desktop at home which I may put some pictures up of it untextured.

Modified Trabant from OFP

Roof Rack with board and mast pieces added.




Done back when I had the time to spend on anything. was done for the Trabant Addon by "Kalashinikov Productions" and I think we all saw where that went.....(well those of us on OFP.info at the time)
Beta can be found...somewhere
Would love to do more modeling though.
note: I do not and cannot texture my PS/GIMP skills are so limited it ain't true.

Both look really good. Keep up the great work. Sounds like an interesting mini mod JdB.

JynX,
Not sure but I think JdB uses 3ds Max.
I've have been using blender for a little while, and I think it's very good also.

Know what you mean about texturing, as I have given it a big go myself, yet still suck ..will keep trying though smile.gif

/OT* Just had a quick look (atleast as quick as photography allows) over your D-art page and it is very impressive (imo). Some amazing skyscapes you got there makes me want to go over to UK. I'm using a D70s at the moment also (all ways used film so its my first digital), need to get some better lenses though. Kinda ran out of money so hopefully I can get enough soon glare.gif OT/

(Edit: Opps hope I was allowed to post in here without showing work)

Correct smile.gif

I tried Blender, but didn't quite like the interface, too messy (though that is more likely due to using MAX for more than 2,5 years now)

And yes, you're allowed to post here without showing work as long as the content of the post is on-topic.

Meanwhile, if people have some suggestions for hunting rifles, please post them and I'll consider the options. I've planned the Ithaca and Kozlice for now as well as the Colt 44 (maybe the 357 instead).

Define a hunting rifle. Thats a rather sweeping term. I like the Mauser 98 Magnum and some of the remmy 700s.

A rifle used for hunting tongue.gif

Preferably rifles pretty much exclusive to hunting, instead of military rifles.

Ok then. Sako 75 without a doubt or a Tikka T3. Can't beat the Finns at dedicated hunting rifles!

Hehe well I don't know WTF these are, but any of these at all usable?
All as I know is that the bottom one may be pre-1950 russian made.
Probably nothing like what you are after, but if you think they are worth the effort, I can take better blueprint type shots with the silencers off and bolts in.. or whatever.
Ohh and the top ones a slug gun (I know wierd to have it scoped), it's used to hut birds eating fruit so... ?biggrin.gif

These are just idea's though probably not the kind of powered rifles you are after.

Pretty much yes, I got them when my dad died afew years ago, which is the reason why I have no clue on their orgin.

Which ones/one do you want and do you want the silences in the picture(they were added 3 years ago).
They are 0.22s and I have like 10 boxes of Winchester subsonic cartridges which I use them for rabbit hunting (and to finish the odd sheep off). So I hope that is big enough prey for what your mod is about smile.gif

Mostly the top and bottom one, but especially the bottom one. I do want to make one with a silencer, but it's easy enough to make a non-silenced version as well, as I image the bores have no muzzlebreaks like a modern military AR does.

I'm currently mapping the Ithaca. After that I will bugger Linker Split for help on the normal mapping naughty.gif

Sure no problem, I will take them tonight. But yeah, if you find something better or don't get the time down the road its no trouble. Even found abit about them in the process thumbsup.gif

If anyone is interested, by the markings on the USSR one (bottom) I googled it and got this
http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=171848
(T03-17 made in ussr) But I know it was atleast before 1955.

And the scope on the slug gun matches the one from earlier 60s on this site
http://www.nikkostirling.com/
(Nikko Stirling TIARA 4x28) made in japan
Not sure about the gun itself as all I can make out is
BSA GUNS LTD ENGLAND 177 CAL


Edit:
Didn't have much time so they are pretty poor, but here is afew that may be ok (don't think they are good enough for blue prints though)
Mag-bullets
http://img117.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsc0013it8.jpg
Silencer off

Rest

http://img138.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsc0010gf3.jpg
http://img138.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsc0011qa7.jpg

But maybe you should use better blueprinted ones from other sources like JynX suggested, either way best of luck with the project. If you do end up using the above and need afew better shots, let me know and I will try get them but if not its no worries as I probably needed photos, for when I get house and contents insurance (if ever smile.gif)

JynX, yeah New Zealands camera market is abit behind i would expect, this was about as best I could get.

Edit:No problem, like I said, they are usable for me for other purposes also.

good place for blue prints i've been using: http://www.the-blueprints.com/

plenty of old rifles in there.
If some one made a detailed version of the one from Bresseb's tutorial hosted on the OFP.info site that'd be grand! smile.gif Think it's the Browning Stalker or something like that.

I'll be picking up my O2 files when i'm at me house later today so that with my OFP files will allow me to do better and more stuff, i preffer O2 to most proper things lol

OT:@Bracken: thanks most of those weren't taken in the UK i'd say almost 80% were France or Tenirefe but some of the ones which hold the same horizon were taken from my old house. D70s are good but didn't think Nikon were still manufacturing them anymore, haven't seen one aside from my own since i got it.

Finally began texturing the Ithaca, doing the diffuse map first (the thing I'm actually relatively good at in contrast to normal mapping...):



Will probably make a separate thread once I get the first weapon finished.

looking cool, one assumes the CStorm (Barreta I think it is) is as in OFP to small to be brought into the game properly, was considered redoing a model i made of it.

Also working on a set of fictional Revolver models such as the one in OFP for some one to texture and port to the game if they so wish

will post pics when i get stuff worth posting pics of

I did a model of the CStorm as well a long time ago, funny weapon. EDIT: never mind, issue resolved, but thanks for reading anyway. Solution: always use a background, no matter what color, it won't affect the normal map, as long as you don't process it with the Normalmap filter

I am having some problems with the normal mapped effects, they work, however not the way I want them to. Nothing says it better than a picture:

As you can see, there is a box shaped edge around the drawing, which isn't supposed to be there (the only thing on the normal map are two such (two sides of the weapon) identical drawings, no background what so ever), the diffuse map of 1024X1024 is a separate file (same mapping as the diffuse map). The boxes around them just appear after using the Nvidia Normalmap filter, so I am assuming they're causing it, what can I do to prevent this? Use some sort of background color? Please help...





Just a note: The white lines are my way of keeping track what I'm doing (darkness on black would be too hard to see when working).

Im really curious how will shotguns work in ArmA. In OFP they werent very effective as the shot was actaully a few shots strafing in a line from top to bottom. I hope that in ArmA you can make the shots spread out in all directions... sweatingbullets.gif
Btw very nice work JdB and Jynx, that Trabi is just a marvel w00t.gif
