First and for most the team behind Contagion Theory wanted to thank all those who voted for us during the MOTY. We felt good making it past phase one so again mad thanks to all those who voted for us.

On to the good stuff. Chris is doing a over haul on the Darkplaces code for Darsana which will help the code base for Contagion Theory. We have all the weapons finished and we have all the parasite concept finished. We showing you today the first concept of our officer for the project and the last weapon for our first release.

We are looking for professional modelers who have the time and talent to make our parasite models come to life. On top of that we need the player models started as you can see from our officer concept we need some extra help. We are on GameSurge #ContagionTheory and our site is being redone since we have all this concept to work with so make sure you keep an eye on us via our profile on modDB.com

now dont get me wrong, i just read about this game, and i think it sounds awesome, like really. but theres one thing that seems kind of off to me.

why would they use a famas in the future when were on other planets and stuff? that would be like making a game now where we still used thommy guns or m1 carbines. the famas model looks great, really, but i dont know. maybe use the famas as a base and change it so it looks like a realistic futuristic weapon (as opposed to the way a lot of games go when making future weapons that looks ridiculous)

its good either way though, its your guys game. keep up the good work.

Consider that the AK-47 is "old" but still one of the most reliable weapons around. Same with the 1911 pistols. Hell, up until recently the 1911a1 was the sidearm of the United States Army. Also, if you factor in the story for this game having "older" weapons makes sense. The corporations that terraformed and started mining these planets were in it for some quick cash. It says in the mod description that they were very sloppy about everything, so when you consider the weaponry available it probably wasn't the highest of technology that you'd expect. Especially considering that no one knew about the parasite threat until it was already upon them.

ah, it only takes place in 2040, i missed that. i figured just the setting descriptions and such that it would take place way further in the future.

then yeah, it works, my bad.

Yeah, so things like the Famas, SCAR, M8, FN2000 and such are equivalent to older weaponry of nowadays, like AKs and such. Makes sense, although I doubt a heavily funded military would still be using the same weapons in that time period.

Looking great as always, those concepts are gorgeous!
