Weapon requests

User is offline   11bush 

#1

I have been trying to make a weapon every couple of days to improve my skills, but I'm running out of ideas on what to make.

If anyone has any ideas for something they might want, just let me know. If you like it then you can have it, if not it's no problem I just want the practice.

Thanks!

Good idea of how to get good at making weapons and then actually getting used in a mod! I would love to see a Browning Automatic Rifle in Duke3D!

DN64 weapons, the ones not included in the PC version :P, or the alternate ammo.
Otherwise, there are a lot of choices from other games and no-games: BFG, PSG1, Dragunov, Steyr AUG, USAS-12, M-79, K3G4 (from Syphon Filter game and its piercing effect against bulletrpoof suits, it was not just a description xD), also GTA games, i always liked SPAS-12 (semi-automatic mode).

I think you can either try modern or old weapons, i'm more curious about old weapons like ww2 era because they are similar to what you've worked on for viet stuff... think to M1A1 carbine, M1 Garand etc.. also you can make some artillery like M79 and M72 LAW ... I don't remember / cannot track if you already did them, but anyway you got the point ;)

What kind of info are you looking for? How to make the image or just how to get it into the game?

I'm done the BAR, it isn't perfect but damn if that wasn't a hard gun to make haha ;)



If you want a faster firing rate and a bigger clip just add this to the bottom of your game.com

gamevar WEAPON1_TOTALTIME 4
gamevar WEAPON1_CLIP 25

Haha, it's just a weird looking gun, it was hard to find a way to make it that didn't look weird I guess. :P

Yeah, it replaces the pistol, I can make it replace the chaingun if you like, I might go back and try to improve on it a little later as well.

Here is my progress so far on the SPAS-12 Idle frame, I will still add a bit more detail, but I like it so far. :P

I'm surpirsed that the BAR sounds that good by using the pistol sound.

That looks really good.

Just a suggestion, but depending on what soft you are using, you could use PBR materials and an HDRI to get more realism on your sprite renders.

The original game sprites tend to have more dramatic, directional lighting, with more highlights and shadows.

You are right. How does this look?

OK I have one version nearly complete, I'm still working on getting the semi auto version working. If anyone has any suggestions on what I could improve let me know, I'm trying to improve ;)

Damn, i'm drooling man.

The spark during the fire animation could look more solid (IMO).

Duke's shotgun uses totaltime 30, if it lowered to 24 it shot a little bit faster and will complete the "reloading" animation.
For a semi-auto version a totaltime between 16-20 sound good, but the animation looks broken when the number is under 24.

Personally, it looks so nice already, but artists need to take their time, no need to rush ;)

I made a bit of progress on an M1 Garand so far. Anything with wood on it is hard to get looking good on the duke palette :lol:

Use Image Analyzer to convert your images to the Duke palette, or any other palette for that matter. It seriously does it better than any other program. I use PhotoShop for almost everything but still use Image Analyzer to convert the colors, it can't be beat.

That's awesome ! And you're right about duke palette, even if it has 64 shades of brown (pun IS intended :D)

After messing around with wood textures for a bit, I ended up making a tommygun this morning, so I packaged that up with the shotgun here if anyone wants to check it out. Just unzip it in your duke folder. (Backup your stuff, since it has a new game.con and user.con though.)



If anything doesn't work just let me know and I will add any missing files, I have a lot going on in my duke folders :D

Edit: Removed the file until I get it sorted out tonight.

I think with all this weaponry being made someone should pick up the Duke Begins mod.

I think am doing something wrong.

If i replace my User.con and Game.con (or just one of them) it give me "Error compiling CON files." when i run eduke32.

Also, the tiles.020 ART is causing (for me) dark screen at the start (after the nuclear logo), a weird background in the title menu, crossair and pistol disappeared, and also; pistol, shotgun and RPG (btw the effect with RPG is pretty funny) spawns SPAS-12 sprites:

Spoiler


Using eduke r9205.

If am correct the content is:


SPAS-12 related: TILES000.ART - tiles020.ART - SPAS12.CON


Tommygun related: TILES009.ART - GAMEVARS.CON - tommy.wav (not sure about the modded GAME.CON and USER.CON even more)


Everything worked prefectly with the BAR.
