_Erebus_ Jul 13 2011, 5:14pm replied:

was actually planning on an Alternates package, for those who loved the HD Pack's style. i.e. beretta instead of glock, classic spas-12 instead of the current. the comments so far point to preferring the 1911, so for now I'll stick with that, and Deagle is an alternate.

the alternates will be given just as much attention as far as my compiles go, but won't be really showcased, as they're not the main course. make sense?

it can look great on v_models in some cases. i.e. a magnum model. not always though. look at the SC4 python, find example of a kickass magnum with a chrome overlay.
the problem with chrome overlays comes when they're used on a hand model, because of how the tripmine uses the world/set submodels.

_Erebus_ Mar 23 2011, 8:02pm replied:

some of them might look better as plain additive.
r1chard really loves chrome overlays, i think he used them on almost every NPC. the thing about chrome is, well, it doesn't matter how the smoothing is on chrome, it'll be rendered the same when it's compiled/in-game. shading doesn't properly apply to it, so it's not a very good idea in most cases.

all of that together is around 3500. however, there aren't any models that have both upper arms, and both hands visible, so unseen faces will be deleted for optimization.
it's mainly based on the original models, with some influences from the HD pack occasionally. i'll be releasing a beretta and M4 compile, along with a couple other goodies when 1.0 is released too.

The 1911 I'm planning to use is the "HK1911" .. Heckler and Koch never actually did an edition of the 1911, but Twinke Masta got creative and came up with this:

Render by Slider.

Don't get me wrong, I love the classic 1911s, but something about this really grabs me. It's a great gun.

Should I really opt for a classic 1911 or stick with this guy? No LAM in Blue Shift of course.

Not a very good recreation. You need to work on texture scaling on the ceiling, and you made the room much larger. Also those doors and windows aren't proper. You used the wrong textures too. Hate to tell you this but this was a poor remake, but still not bad for a first map. Read up as much as you can about mapping on sites like TWHL, you'll learn a lot. Good luck.
