My name is "Diesel". I first started out on the computer doing CAD for architecture over a decade ago, but then I got into 3D animation and I have attended Animation Mentor (for two terms/dropped out due to deployment) along with completing multiple college courses on animation and advanced 3D modeling. My main program I use is Maya. I am also currently working with UDK. My specialty is web design along with modeling and animating weapons and war type vehicles. I am a combat vet and served with the United States Marine Corps for 8 years as an infantryman, served on the SWAT team as an entry team member for a local police department, I also was a military civilian contractor as a security operations weapons specialist. To break it down; I know combat, tactics and weapons. I founded "The Vets" group which is a group solely of military veterans from all over the world willing and able to provide the know-how to those that are seeking it. Want some military or combat advisement? Just ask.

Hey Guys! First off, love what you are all doing. Fantastic videos and progress. My only concern is your M2 is scaled too large. Is that just for this video to demonstrate the animations, controls, etc.? If so, great, but I would definitely scale it down appropriately for the final version. Great job guys! Keep it up! IF you guys need any help with accuracy or AI tactics, feel free to ask. I'm a combat vet with years of experience.

Looks great. Are you going to include the flash suppressor in the texture? If not, then you need to adjust the barrel some. Great job guys!

Looks good, I would do a little more beveling of the edges. Glocks are boxy, but still beveled. The slide looks a little thin on top, maybe it is the angle of the image, but that is where the “guts” of the weapon are. Also with the silencer, it would be longer and due to the threading it wouldn’t be so close to the firearm it would stick out a little bit. Lastly, the front sight needs to turn around. The flat section (where the dot is) would face the shooter. Other than those few things, great start.

This was also sent via a PM.
1. The pistol grip has too large of a gap between the grip and the trigger guard.
2. Your ejection/loading port appears to be too far from the trigger guard, maybe move it in just a little bit.
3. There is no side ejection port with an Ithaca. They have a special ejection port that is also their loading port on the bottom of the receiver.

I'm not sure I understand the concept. You want to have the player go back to all the wars and stop them? So, you want a world with oppression and slavery? Don't get it...but good luck.

That wasn't practical in Vietnam. With the weather and the elements, dirt and mud would jam the other magazine that had the rounds exposed.

Looks good. My only suggestion is that the magazine is too long. If it is a 30 round magazine it needs to have a curve to it.

That is not entirely accurate. We are trained to count every round and to leave one in the chamber so that we are able to fire if we need to while reloading. You never drain your weapon.

To correct what information you have received from Wikipedia; the guns that are a coaxed in the UGWS are a 40mm Mk 19 and a M2 .50cal machinegun, not a 25mm Bushmaster chaingun. Your start is good; however the sides near the front need to be worked on a little. It is more of a straight side unless you have the optional EAAK armor. Also the plenums need to be reworked. There is also more than just one radio antenna.

Let me know if you need any resources. I am the founder of The Vets and I have personal experience with these and many more vehicles, weapons, etc. in combat.

It is mainly designed for amphibious operations. It isn’t designed to get into a one-on-one firefight with tanks or even a BMP. I have however seen one take a RPG-7 shot and still have the ability to maneuver and continue in the fight…but even that doesn’t speak much now-a-days.

We asked ourselves the same thing. We brought the AAVs further inland (about 450 miles) than they ever have been in history. There were threats that the bridges crossing the Tigris and Euphrates were going to be rigged so there needed to be a way to cross them. Whether that was the only reason or not, I do not know. But we brought them and they did their job.

True as it may be. You are authorized to shoot equipment. So unless the enemy is running around naked, they are fair game.

I know this posting is old, but I just stumbled upon this. The actual title of this vehicle is the AAVP7A1 RAM/RS. They started manufacturing the raised suspension with the tracks after the U.S. Army Bradley IFV around 1999. Great model though!

I'm not 100% sure. I did it years ago and since have lost the actual Maya file. I just held on to the JPEG. I do know that it is much higher than the other Glock models that I posted on here. Those were for a mod. This one I wasn't worried about poly count so I didn't shy on detail, although looking back I could have done a lot better.

This video would only be true in the instance of the belt-fed machine guns. The rounds are linked together and are distributed to the forces in the boxes already linked. The other mags for the assault rifles and pistols are dependent on how the situation is. You are trained to keep you mags, however, in the heat of battle you are thinking about putting more rounds down-range. You normally pick up the extra equipment (from both sides) once the combat has subsided. If you guys are intent on making this mod "real" then feel free to contact me as a resource. I served in the Marine Corps for 8 years and as a military civilian contractor security operations weapons specialist.
