Very nice! Glad to see an update
Can't say I like this one very much. Its probably just me though- the pattern is too monotone imo. <.<
btw, If you're looking for more camouflage patterns, I'll be happy to share some of my library with you.
Thanks for the info
Pretty kick ***. Looks like American, European, Iranian, and Chinese rifles all had a love child. Any idea when they're going to adopt it?
We also may be adding a Glock 17 ^^
Nope, its an Iranian varient. I can't find the exact one online but this should be close enough Photos.upi.com
This is getting blown up on both sides. Western media is trying to make Putin into Hitler mkII. Putin is just trying to show off some of Russia's new toys in an effort to save face after some embarrassing portrayals of his forces in Georgia= Russia's military is reformed, but it isn't quite there yet.
It's a massive ******* contest, but there's still a chance that things could get worse- its not over till its over
push comes to shove, we should leave it to the europeans to deal with it. Although they do think their decisions through, they're very afraid to initiate conflict- that's understandable, but I don't think Europeans would do anything until it's too late
The limit of one's personal liberties should be at the point at which their actions directly harm others.
Not if their action can potentially harm others- they must actually be an 100% active danger to the general wellbeing of another.
In this case, it's obvious. Second hand smoke sucks for everyone. On public property it should be banned. The government has a right to spend taxpayer money to impede tobacco+drug companies, especially if the govt is providing a basic level of universal healthcare.
I've had similar experiences to those you've described while I was living in Europe. I have examples ranging from people telling me my country is run by malicious jews to saying the US invasion of Iraq was done to TAKE their oil. I had some random kid come up to me and say "I hate Americans" (causing a bit of a fight) at an indoor pool without any kind of provocation. Even though these incidents were rather frequent, at that age I knew that these people don't represent the majority of Germans or Europeans for that matter- I had to take these as isolated incidents, and I could see how that could be harder to do when observing the US after a lot of the problems we've caused in the past.
Having experienced the American education system, I can honestly say that it gets a bad rep and while it ins't particularly good, it isn't that bad either. I took both US and European history as well as AP government in high school. These classes were actually very informative and had clear bias (which is a good thing). I'll admit we have problems in our education system, but that's to be expected- we have individual states trying to meet federal standards with different funding/methods. Education can differ from state to state and even precinct to precinct. You can't expect any education system to be as thorough as that of a smaller, more manageable European state.
The US is also not bordered with any European nations, so it's actually unfair for you to expect us to understand politics overseas when none of it really effects us- In Europe, things are so interconnected between the states that understanding the other cultures, languages, and politics of your neighbors becomes necessity.
In short, a vast majority of Americans are critical of our government. You really aren't alone, those nationalistic 'muricaheads drive everyone crazy, the majority of Americans included.
Arma 2 had the same issues starting out. Arma 3 will be just as good if not better- trust me.
Oh no! Muslims practicing freedom of religion in a nation founded on that very principles??? noOoooooOooooOo
Weak, maybe, but philosophy and culture thrive in freedom.
You won't have cynics thinking outside the box when you don't have any asshats to criticize.
'murica answers to no one
(except maybe Reagan- America loved Reagan... Reagan and trans fats...)
I know he did.
To some I'm extreme, to others I'm too submissive- perspective plays the largest part here.
But no, I'm not tired of this at all, I'm intrigued if anything. Maybe it'll eventually wear off, but I enjoy the discussion for now.
I could agree with you to some extent- any organized group of people can be considered a circlejerk, but I find it necessary to mention that I'm an atheist because I chose to be one, not because someone else chose it for me, and in a way, I'm simply jerking myself- coincidentally, others here are jerking themselves for the same reason, so sure, we look like a circle jerk, but we are a loose confederation of wankers.
For the most part I'm just glad I'm not being jerked by some priest.
True. I'd still like to point out that atheists, although we may be a fiery bunch of people, don't tend to be violent. I'm not trying to justify this kind of behavior, but insensitivity isn't something that should be directly associated with ignorance- and ignorance, not insensitivity, is one of the attributes I see often in radical theists.
Marines are phasing out the M249 anyway in favor of arming support troops with m27 IAR DMRs.
Although the mod isn't so wrapped up in reality, there is authenticity to it, and given the circumstances, AP team shouldn't feel compelled to keep the m249 just because a small portion of the community likes it. I wouldn't worry though, the team already has the asset, and knowing how scarce new content is for BF2 nowadays, there isn't much of a chance that the team will end up removing the m249 altogether.
Feel free to untwist your testis now
Yes, the US has it's problems, but jesus f*ck guys, there are so many nations out there that are WAY worse than us- we happen to have one of the best systems of government EVER created- we literally pioneered the modern republic, and as it may not be as fast or efficient as it's parliamentary cousins, it's got a knack for overcoming obstacles and representing the will of the people- as the government develops, so do we.
The one unique attribute that the US government brings to the table is fundamental change- instead of a government simply telling people what to do and how to do it, the American republic requires the people to collectively change for the better before they're told to do what is right for the sake of being 'good'- it may seem slower, more complex, clunky, and goddamn ugly, but it's a lot healthier for a society in the long run.
Point is it's gone through worse in the past, and it'll sure as hell go through worse in the future.
Cool camo, but too much noise
New animations, balancing, SMG/Pistol sidearms, and an uncanny craving for cheese.
Regulation yes, but remember that we live in a capitalist society, and we can't scare American industry into China- that would end up killing us. We need cultural change before ANYTHING else will work. Our people are materialistic, violent, narcissistic, arrogant, and self-centered- I don't mean this as a direct insult to other Americans, but it should be a wake up call. A lot of our problems could be solved by a simple change of character.
Insulting us will only make us more defensive and increase these issues- we need to change from within. So my message to foreigners who constantly rip on us, give it a break- all you're doing is picking a scab. We will realize it sooner or later.
This is Arma...
In forest like that, normally the trees have bright green ivy or moss climbing up them. The colors right, but I think a simple fix would be to put some moss on the tree's diffuse
will we be able to mummify our dead?
I agree with you.
The one thing that separates the US from most of the world though, is that we are capable of change without violent revolution.
Our government is like a giant mass of bureaucratic play-doh.
10 years from now, we will be a totally different America.
10 years from then, you won't even recognize us.
I'd publicly protest this ban. Did I say public? I meant pubic.
Yes. I said that.
What are you going to do about it?
1st off, the US didn't get involved until 1942.
Most of the fighting was between Germany and Russia.
The US was not as prevalent in the western theater of the war- our forces were mostly just a diversion to pull some of the German forces from the eastern front, but the Russians still would have won without US involvement.
Now, as for the pacific, the Americans were a lot more significant. Japan was the real threat in this scenario, but all of that was covered up once the holocaust reached the headlines.
So this is where Chads been all this time...
These textures need work.
I'd say it's more like COD 4 with well executed vehicle mechanics.
This does share some problems with BF3-the guns shoot a bit fast, and they could use some louder sounds as well (like more of a popping noise), but it still plays nicely.

ADS makes you slower and less maneuverable, yet more accurate. The laser is just there to look cool.
Australians hate it when we point this out; but the most similar country to the United States happens to be Australia- I'm not playing up my government at all. So if you want an accurate representation of Americans, look at the people around you. We're the same :P
I believe that police should carry guns so long as the citizens carry guns. Citizens should carry guns so long as the criminal carries guns, and the criminal always carries their gun weather it is within the bounds of law or not.
Positive comment +
Dirty words are fun. Why not change the rule to abuse in general. Saying ballsacks isn't hurting anyone. Calling someone a ballsack has the potential to.
See my point?
The middle east is violent towards western civilization in particular because of our blatant interference in their borders and politics. The middle east would be a nice place if the US+EU hadn't been trying to influence them for our own interests. We created the monstrous dictators and radicals, and we are both paying a heavy price for our my country's actions.
and dare I ask how many nations are using v2's?
Fak I'll join because I love this group. When i read it i thought it was a Democratic party group. Ew
I just finished a 10 hour gaming session of civ 5 as Ethiopia on marathon+prince. Half way through the game :)
Is that a *****?
Already looks amazing...so uh-wats the performance hit?
I want you to JONES all over those textures
nice...what is it
Mattman, thats probably the most intelligent thing i've seen anyone write from this group. @triangulum, if you said this, you would look like a hypocrite. make up your mind
Not an HD reskin, just modified the texture a bit :)
Let's research the stimulating effect cold has on the human ability to reason.
Yes, we were based on moderate christian ideals, but that is equally held with freedom of religion and seperation of church and state. I wouldn't have it any other way
bread crumbs are hardcoded :P
kind of is. Remember, not realism mod, just coolness
Sorry about the low quality, I filmed it widescreen :P
well not exactly, the point in PR is that it wouldnt be necessary, they already have kit selection systems
thats what they said about refractor-2
BF2 mod turned Indie. Must watch!
looks liek play4free
Lets try and be professional here, as cool as that is, dont you think it makes the mod a bit...idk, broken?
were trying to show here that this game is going to be as repetative as possible...jk xD
I thought those were iron sights, i see no logical reason why someone would hold a firearm from an attachment, i mean, ive gotten myself in enough trouble hitting people with my lunchbox in elementary school let alone doing that with an assault rifle/UGL
I quite enjoy BFP4F-still fun even if you dont spend $300.00 cause you want a new hat
very origional, very cool, fits perfectly into sof
Cant help but think of PR when i look at this, phenominal work though
No man I think hes right the model doesnt like my textures, I have some better detailed vbf2 gloves we could use instead, maybe the community will like em more
u spullefd gir wrongg
This is very good, cept the back is a bit too smooth
dude I swear i could fill a page with these puns and I would still have more
looks sharp! (heheh see what I did thar :D?)
is this what they mean by "bear hands"
Let him do it, it will look much better
since when did you guys have actual models?
Im sorry but what flag is that in the distance
Very creative from the origional image xD
I know a lot of people ask this, but when are we going to see the pacific?
I really want there to be servers
I swear he edited the post xD, my bad then, go on with your buisness retard
BTW, speaking of vehicles, just as a suggetion could you resize some of the vehicles so theyre more to scale with the soldiers?
I see pictures online and the sizes contrast a bit in BF2
You might as well put the USP in this also, would be pretty cool
Just a few suggestions though: the vehicles (especially the Blackhaks) have some crappy textures, maybe a good Idea in the future would be some better quality vehicle reskins
Going to activate my custom lighting then use some gameplay footage from this and release a video on youtube saying its bf3 multiplayer gameplay, see if nyone falls for it
nonono, it says jones2011 ;)
If you look at the picture on the right the m4 skin looks a bit sharper than the acog, not a big deal though. Also the edges of the acog are a bit too thick in the ADS, Looks good though, cant wait to see the m16 acog
You're a couple of elevated people.
If everyone acted as you do, the world would have little need/inclination for conflict.
ah, I see.
I agree- technology is a huge edge against the enemy, but we should also retain our own natural abilities.
When it comes to guns, I like modernized AKs a lot more than m4s/m16s (although I like german guns best, especially the new M27 IAR we're adopting in the US)- still, our optics are the best in the world, and pretty much every US soldier/marine is issued an RCO nowadays, and that's a huge advantage over other military powers in the world who haven't yet adopted the practice..
this looks delicious
I was also wondering why Saudi Arabia was used as Israel's opposition in this comic...

I can't say I like this post. It's just inflammatory with a very weak/none existant other motive.
in other words too basic for my tastes

rangers are army- Oorah is marines
DICE is in it for the money now man, unfortunately they'll likely never bounce back (same goes for any EA published developer)
the mountains look as if they could use some work. They look like they were pulled out of the ground as opposed to pushed, molded, and eroded.
Just my personal opinion here
The buildings should have some visible signs of being lived in- possibly fences, stuff propped up against walls, lightsources, cobblestone walls, dirt paths, etc
This content is all uncomfortably expensive
If we took all the $$ we would have spent invading iraq in 2003 just rebuilding the exact same towers as a government owned monument, I think we'd be a lot better off symbolically.
It's more accurate than foxnews
We've gotten a lot of criticism from suddenly having an interest in soccer, but I'll now that we actually showed up with a decent team, I actually had fun watching it even after we were eliminated.
+funfact I've hated soccer my whole life- in my experience I've always thought people took sports in general way too seriously.
This is pretty kickass. I've noticed the camouflage pattern on the hat is too small though. You probably want to scale the camo pattern up on that part of the kit
kick *** man
We've always been morally ambiguous, governments just started to have a harder time hiding things with the internet.
The US government has been rather incompetent in regulating/using the internet. Putin, on the other-hand, knows how to play the media like a flute- he's former KGB so it's not far from what he probably used to do working for the USSR.
Honestly, neither side is justified here. We should keep our military strength up (because we have a ton of countries under our defense umbrella), but otherwise we shouldn't get too involved in affairs we don't actually understand.

I did! Thanks (:
It uses very little geometry- I managed to put most of the detail into it's texture
Nice. I love it when teams do their research

most of the gear is from pr. I modeled the helmets, comms, and goggles.
We still need someone to export the kits.
very cool. Any idea what the rifle is called?
Very good work. I'm getting the impression that all the maps have their own unique 'feel'. This is something rare in community maps and I applaud you for it. +1 internet
The concerning thing is a possible chemical attack. They're gaining money and resources and it won't take long for them to reach that capability.

I don't agree. Technology was fairly stagnant up until the reformation. Without a separation of church and state, we could never have come as far as we have. Look at history's great scientists- rarely did they ever follow the rules of an established church.
Even the Christian+Jewish religions have benefited greatly from the philosophical innovations of the renaissance/reformation. Imagine how screwed up it would be if you were punished every time you questioned your faith or beliefs- you probably wouldn't be as strong a person as you are now.
+fedoras are disgusting...
I'm very offended by this seemingly racist caricature.
quality as usual
That's not a german
This isn't training. Its more of a PR demonstration.
Nothing wrong with expression. If you keep your wits about you thats all that really matters
The cap is scaled way too large
real camo. I'm working on an updated version of it myself
If he could change the molecular structure of water he can change the size and shape of his hand
Don't tell Jesus what he can and can't do
I believe there's too much contrast in the texture. I'd recommend making the brown parts of the camo a bit larger as well as making a desert camo helmet cover. Whatever looks good ^^
We were considering a pattern like this for Combat but we decided to create a new camouflage for them. I still really liked the ccp camo on the MEC model.
Put a grenade launcher and then attach an undermounted shotgon. Add 3 different scopes and cover the thing in rails. Put a bipod on the barrel of the weapon and replace the mag with two drum magazines taped together. Throw in a laser sight. Now wrap tape around the stock and whatever exposed points are left on the gun. Spraypaint the gun with complex digital/hexigonal/bacon camouflage patterns.
Then undo all those changes b/c this is perfect- well done as always. Are they on youtube or are you going to have us wait to see them on release?
You kept these pretty authentic looking along with the older skins from DICE. The 2x size looks really good as well.
I've found working in 2k then scaling down to 1k yields great results as people don't usually hone in on the smaller details- when they do, they usually notice a difference in quality between the soldier's skin and its surroundings. In my personal work I try to keep everything consistent
i.e everything is HD or everything isn't
I think different people have different opinions on the matter, but regardless, it's obvious you put a lot of work into this and I can tell. Great work man :) I can't wait to see your future projects.
+you cut the camo along the seams. So few people remember to do that but it always makes things pop a bit more
Nice- well done
Now that is incredible...
true :) keep it up man
Nice! quality work on the skins!
The small bit of criticism I can give is that the multicam could be scaled down a bit.
We didn't have anything better at the time.
MEC still uses Picatinny rails though
Grey fits well into those distortions of color and objects.
To be honest, the best urban pattern would be a mix of completely random, spontaneous shapes.
I used to love this game :D
Sorry extreme, you'll just have to wait. ;)
I know I'm coming across particular, and I'm well aware that AP isn't a realism mod, but the USMC doesn't use ACU and it's being phased out of the US Army. IRL marines use desert marpat in urban environments- it would suck if you had to change clothes every time you deployed somewhere different.
Yea- He'd better show. I spent a fortune on this Yuribait...
Everything Bush did was within the law. That to me is more horrifying than his doctrine as president...
Atheists don't want to illegalize public display of religion- what we want is the removal of blatant religious objects and imagery from public property. On private property you can have swastikas, satanic statues, and pink flamingos all over your front lawn- we just care about maintaining our secular state and our representation in government.
I've been waiting months for lt.Dann to come in here and say something along the lines of "well maybe they've killed him 5 times."
What about all the materialistic people in our society? Look at our nation's federal government, Yuri- humans have been so unsatisfied with the gods we've created (despots, kings, dictators) that we've decided to throw together our own Mount Olympus. We now have a bunch of "gods" fight over issues with the implied belief that us petty, insignificant mortals aren't expected to be involved in or even understand for that matter. While it's so obvious that we're trying to create human gods you still don't see past a little porcelain baby jesus?
I'm not a Christian or even a religious person for that matter, but I can understand how this artwork helps people connect to their god and better understand themselves. They don't worship the art, they worship the faith in god it represents. The bible has many interpretations, and I'd go as far to say the most relevant interpretation of idols would be the people we try to turn into gods, not the objects.
Its both disrespectful and condescending to call religious art "idols" and justify that with your own twisted version of Christianity.
I doubt the US is going to war over Syria, I'd relax.
Our population has learned from Iraq, and none of our leaders would want to suffer such a hit to their popularity by opening another conflict in the region.
I completely agree with the innocent until proven guilty argument. That's one of the most definitive lines between a free society and an autocratic one.
Wow that's awesome!

thanks- I was making this for the T88 (North Korean) which is a copy of the AK74. I think I used Chinese type 56 rounds as a reference. I'm glad you caught that.
I would have, but then I realized bots would be using it as well
All he's saying is he doesn't know of any atheists like that (which I haven't either), but that doesn't mean he's denying their existence.
I'll admit, I too am a bit skeptical, but I'll take your word for it because it doesn't seem that unlikely. Viewpoints tend to deviate from person to person- it's only logical
I think the new group is going to be a bunch of people agreeing with eachother (in most cases) and we should just work on ironing out the old one...
When i wrote that I meant for customization
More often than not they are factual, but the facts are presented in a deceptive manner- no media source in the world is innocent of this.
Remember to use as many sources as you can when checking information- knowing one's own opinion is the best way to eliminate it from the overarching truth.
keep in mind that fact does not connote truth
oddly enough, they were- the (flawed) logic behind it is that people can't worship stalin when they're busy worshipping god, so the state took away religious freedom and hunted religious people, making it impossible for religious leaders to actually organize people against the soviet state (which in considering itself atheists gave these people reason to want to depose such a government).
You'll find the average Atheists may dislike religion and gods, but are more advocates of religious freedom than anything else. Don't mistake their criticism of your beliefs as a wish to forcefully eliminate them.
For the last time, they were targeted as a power threat- they were persecuted for political reasons, not religious ones.
When has anyone been persecuted by atheists?
It doesn't matter!
By attending black friday sales you inadvertantly consent to being trampled by greedy ********- it's pretty simple- do your shopping around black friday, all the ******** are certain to be absent.
Seems we've got a lot in common here.
Probably the most important part of that is raising taxes for everyone, not just the rich, poor, or middle class, EVERYONE.
Unfortunately Americans don't like paying taxes (for good reasons in some cases (NSA/wars))- It's a politician's worst nightmare to raise taxes, because once they touch the income tax, it starts raining sh*t. It's kind of sad actually.
Thanks bob ^^ Actually I don't think that'll be necessary. You freed up some good space for the wooden bits, and I would have made the exact same call were I making the UV. Your work is all good
Nice! It would be nice to have a face though
It's fast in Europe too, but this doesn't happen as often there.
A simple idiot would jump in and say it's because of the guns, but I'd say it's because people here aren't as happy- I think we lost something in the midst of the 9/11 attacks, and only now are we starting to feel the longer term effects in our nation (I'm not blaming 9/11, I'm talking about living in our cold, post 9/11 society).
Look at how these things are happening:
People aren't walking around on the streets shooting people or going into their homes to kill them- these people enter a public building or facility first beforehand.
There's more to this than meets the eye, these millennial killers all have something in common in their psyche- regardless of their background. Something is happening. We all know it's going on, but we don't know why or even what IT is per say- what we do know is that these shootings are happening A LOT, and I fear that when the time comes to take action, our society will be too busy trying to point at whoever they believe to be responsible before trying to identify the real problem.
We are falling apart, and we need to step back and ask why- what's different now? What would compel you to kill? When did this start? What kind of people do these things?
Why is this even a question? OF COURSE
Just because someone has a learning disability or impairment doesn't mean they don't have a right to live and exist- We live in a civilized society, the fact that someone needs additional help in life is better a reason than any to do just that.
If there's one thing I know for sure, it's that underestimating anyone's capacity to be 'human' is the surest path to losing yours.
Not really, no. The DICE model is really crap, and 7 doesn't enjoy working with it...
The production has raised because
1: The demand+market for opium has increased
2: The Taliban use drug money to buy weapons
"Sorry sir, I'm a bit busy over here trying to look badass if you haven't noticed..."
Yea, around the shoulder area and down into the arms
Otherwise, this is all very nice work
I do like that more. Did you just change some verts or something?
That makes sense- my bad man
Nice- I know I'll probably get sh*t for this, but the skin could use a little more color and a tiny bit of lightening.
Moddb.com Good pose
Looks nice- all this with just CS2???
Good work 7
I had some pretty good english and history classes
ah- I'm not exactly up to speed there. Anyway, good luck :)
Nice. Good luck. You know 7 and I always could've used an extra hand with combat xD
yea- trust me, I thought about this stuff. Don't stop pointing things out though- you never know :)
The western world+USSR stole all it's tech from Germany post ww2- no problem with stealing tech if it's good. What do you expect a nation to do? Come up with it's own designs and face a risk of having your enemies take advantage of you, or use the best gear you can get in the defense of their homeland?
Because you're basing the people's ownership of that land on their ancestry- or more accurately their ethnicity. That's why it's illegal.
This is an old argument, what's done is done- undoing it would only cause more misfortune and suffering.
No, this is Kirkuk
that would require we changed the mesh... If we could have, I would've done it already
So a human life is worth less on a national level? Killing never has and never will solve anything.
The Palestinians rejected partition because it was an infringement on their natural rights. Shiploads of jews were turned around from ellis island in the 40's- sent right back to germany where they would be slaughtered- the US did not take them in after the holocaust either, because we were xenophobic (and still are). Israel is not a result of a loving world, it is the result of a hateful world, and whatever you want to call it, Israel was formed illegally.
Jim Crow era anyone??
how about never
We don't have to be. Look at the Clinton administration. Little monitoring, didn't get involved in other nation's affairs (unless absolutely necessary). Not to mention some of the lowest crime rates, teen pregnancies, and largest economic growth in US history.
check out dat UK master race
Problem: Reaganomics killed the mid-west and nearly crippled our econonomy- not to mention the fact that Reagan brought about a whole new era of imperialist American foreign policy.
tbh, I'm a fan of Clinton. He did more for our economy and overall progression of society, not to mention the fact that he removed most of our debt. Didn't have Americans die over trivial matters, he wasn't pointing his d*ck at anyone who spoke out against us, and best of all, he wasn't a bipartisan. He was able to work with both Democrats and Republicans. It would be nice to have something like that in our post 9/11 fear ridden opinionated society.
I was wondering how this was going.
Could you post poly counts+texture sizes?
because killing is good?
War is f*cking terrible. It's important that people see these things...
Ah, yea, slavery, lynching, sterilization of minors, xenophobia, torture, "patriot acts", foreign wars, outsourcing, corruption, racism, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, redlining, ~hundreds of assassinations, funding dictatorships, overthrowing democracies, arming radicals, and supporting drug cartels...
Most of these took place under CHRISTIAN leadership and conservatives, not atheist/agnostic liberals who according to you have "no morals".
I know I know, my point is, how would you handle the civilians living there? What would become of the new generation of Israeli and Palestinian people who had no control over the circumstances under which they were born?
What would happen to them?
My point is, Israel is a small plot of land, and these problems will be solved by time.
Only peace can create peace- conflict only causes further conflict. If a scab is constantly picked, it will never heal. Someone has to end this.
This is quite interesting. Hopefully EA will learn a thing or two from these people.
Well, the only problem with Putin is he's been in power for quite a while. It just seems kind of odd.
There are many Americans as well as Jews who are anti zionist.
Many of us our educated and can see our own folly.
The divide here, is that I'd rather see these things come to an end peacefully- and they can.
I agree with Mattman. This is not a black and white issue- nothing really is. There is good in bad, bad in good, good that looks bad, bad that looks good, bad will be good, good will be bad, your morals are rarely your own.
Overall, I'd say our nation is split. We vote for someone because they identify blue, or identify red, and often, they're both puppets of chaos.
Ironically, what this country needs right now to instate unity, is individualism.
Unity through fragmentation is the only unity a free society can(and should) sustain.
This requires us to educate ourselves and eachother.
So long as we're not talking about Stalin.
I admire Khrushchev though.
It saddens me that our two powers could not coincide.
I'm ashamed for a lot of my country's paranoid aggression after Roosevelt's death.
At the same time, Stalin was a pretty scary guy. I think he is the reason why the USSR ceased to exist as a nation. He stood in the way of their natural progress just as Truman and the subsequent US neo-conservative fundamentalists in power stood in the way of progress in the United States.
I don't think they'd be able to catch this one though, she'd outrun them in no time with her radical bmx skills.
Its a woman, and she's radical dammit!!!
looks like the BF vietnam trailer.
I like it a lot- really good aesthetic
Jesus (even if I think he's fictional). Thoreau. Gandhi. MLK. Are these people "fools"?
Plenty of fools wear armor.
As a matter of fact, I think your statement goes the other way around, Yuri.
what about a switch b/w marpat and m81?
You should try implementing a weapon jamming mechanic.
yea, just because he was a good physicist didn't mean he was an infinite source of wisdom. After all, he is only human.
best advice ive ever heard
They're actually for night maps in combat mod
Many of the founding fathers were deists, not christians. +The US has been one f*cked up country since we were founded. Racism, imperialism, unchained capitalism, espionage, prohibition, you name it. A majority of these were conservative movements(dont give me that "democrats supported slavery" crap either, because southern democrats were the conservative party, and remained so up until Roosevelt) We are in no way a superior nation when it comes down to morals- i don't care what our nation was founded on so long as we remain secular and maintain a balance between social and political rights.
And stop trying to deny people sex-health care. We've gone down that road before and it was ugly and full of teen pregnancy and domesticity...
NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! IT'S CLASSIFIED!
Pretty much a mobile anthill annihilator
Don't take this the wrong way, but the shield looks like it says "****". it's the last theing someone would see before it bashes them in the face xD
probably :P... So in the case that an Arab coalition were to successfully invade Israel, what would happen?
good vids. I enjoyed them.
Makes sense. I think it'd be better to have things like headgear and combat vests rather than flashy camo patterns. The art is very nice though, props to the concept artist.
Very talented artist you have.
Americans do not actually use a lot of camo. I'd stick to either marpat/multicam, then have some 90s patterns like dcu and m81. I think bf3 has enough camo variation.
Well, in this scenario they're being funded by China.
and that was the 2nd time I died
Now modber, you know that based on conversations with me in the past, I am an atheist, which means the likely (and true) answer to your question is no. I can promise you, that even if I did, I would not think any differently than I do now, and nothing either of us say here and now will change the other's mind.
All militaries have their own martial arts programs- I feel you have far to much faith in the surrounding Arab armies, they aren't very effective combat troops. I think Israel would is less equipped to fight a peaceful war than a violent one.
Israel is by far the most advanced military, but it has had it's *** handed to it in recent conflicts.
I LOVE THIS, I WILL PAY MONEY FOR THIS GAME!!!!
Oh, you got clipping on the top left.
yea, I exaggerated proportions. I like doing that
point is, you believe as you do because the people around you tell you to believe that way. particularly your parents.
Very nice. i like the hands a lot
Actually, I just use my right hand, sometimes I use my left, but it begins to hurt after a while. Often I tell myself I'll learn to use my left more often, but I end up forgetting and get into a rhythm using my right hand. In this case, I rubbed my ink everywhere and posted a picture of it on moddb.
Just saying, it's problematic, your hair can catch fire/be used against you in hand to hand combat. You really never know, it's best to be prepared.
Well, most of the US funding went to the Northern alliance rebels who are still supporting US operations, not the southern Talibs.
no, your little scientific trinket means nothing. The shape is just as easily two interconnected triangles- nature's strongest geometric shape. Which makes more sense?
I'd like to ask rq- what do your parents believe?
Quoting religious texts means nothing here because there is no evidence of it's truth, just as there is no evidence of creation.
You'll never learn...
yea. I like the idea of MEC being supplied by china
yes, that. A splashmark.
Only because science must leave room for the possibility of other truths. in real life, nothing is absolute.
How about "Turn the other cheek"? It is perfectly relevant. THEY STOLE IT FROM US * YEARS AGO SO WE'LL STEAL IT FROM THEM. It isn't justice, it's trying to fight fire with fire, and it doesn't work.
So ethically/morally Israel's creation was not justified.
I'd say the houses are a bit close together
and he chooses ignorance- and yes, I heard the "singing stars", and no, the stars are inanimate, and are not praising your god. There are few definite truths in science, maybe evolution isn't true, and some of darwins theories regarding evolution were in fact proved false, but creation has no evidence, have fun playing pseudoscience with the rest of your religious minority.
This came out in 2003? wow, I used to look at it at the store and think it looked cool, but I stuck with the 2nd one until I got into fps games.
Yes, and I said it implied the symbolism was pointing towards violent action and flag waving. I'm gad we've established that.
Yes, because there are calibration curves and dating ranges that are excluded from your biased studies funded by religious nuts :P Sorry, but you're wrong.
Not "Firstly". Just "first". Art is never "just art" it has an intended message and an intended audience.
Evolution is a theory because it has substantial evidence, (carbon dated skeletal timelapse) while creation has absolutely 0 legitimate evidence pointing toward it being any more likely. :P Maybe you can take a bio class where your teacher could answer some of your concerns. Nothing can be true simply because it's true, but if you have a body, a bloody knife, and a guy holding it, you've most likely found your killer, even if you didn't see him kill anyone.
Bad luck Boromir :(
yea, I'll send them to you if you PM me whether or not u got RAR
6,000,000>5. Hm...odds still don't look too good :P
I'd say that we may need to consider socialized health care if we want to keep our guns. Especially mental healthcare+classes for proper gun usage and storage payed for by US taxes- like a planned parenthood for gun-owners. Of course this applies mostly to urban Americans.
Creation is a hypothesis, not a theory. I want you to explain the theory of evolution to me in your own words before you try to refute it.
An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind?
The new information he mentions comes from mutations that are carried through the next generations. If a creature develops a mutation and it is detrimental, that creature will die out along with it's mutation. On the contrary, if a creature has a slight mutation that is beneficial it will live better, reproduce more, and the mutation will spread through that population of the species. These tiny changes take a VERY LONG time to happen, and then over the course of a few billion years you end up getting separate species. Given this long time interval you won't be able to observe it directly- but just because you can't watch a flower grow through your time parallax as a human doesn't mean it will never blossom. This is quite a fascinating theory in my opinion, and there is a reason why it's so widely accepted by modern biologists (many of which are spiritual, there is no conflict with most religions- There is actually a reference to it in the Qur'an)
Where did I say hate? The artist is obviously talented. i don't hate Israel or it's "supporters". I disagree with them. The difference is that were I pointing a gun at their heads I wouldn't pull the trigger. The message portrayed by this "Israeli crusader" is however, quite the opposite. That is, a man of peace would not need to wear battle armor.
They don't hate the city, they hate the fact that it was stolen from the people living in it.
and right when I actually believed it wouldn't get any more ridiculous you go and prove me wrong again....
you need an animator desperately, but when it comes to gameplay you're in the clear
N is for Nagger.
your butt is too low
I like it- the tape on the clip seems a bit dull though- it would be a nice place to add a little more color.
Just use a grungy brush in photoshop- start by doing an outline, then a shadow overlay, then a color layer. You won't be disappointed...
Nice, It could use some color- maybe a bit of rust on any joints or exposed metal pieces...
Guns guns guns.Guns guns guns gunsguns guns guns guns! Guns!
yes. it isn't that hard once you have it down to muscle memory.
Armors can be made, but I think they have to be rigged- I'll look into it soon.
I use maya 2011 and 3dsmax 12 to convert to nif. Then nifskope and creation kit for converting
clothing styles change- classy changes- they're pants, they do their job- nice clothes can be associated with elitism- it can be intimidating
All of these are logical answers to you're last question.
It's tape btw ^^
Considering the time frame, it wasn't all that bad. When I first played Nexon's Combat Arms I was reminded of that game as well.
Keep up the good work- The lines separating the strips of tape from each other are a bit thick- I don't know if that was intentional or just due to low pixel count.
Will it be flyable?
Sure, there are likely some on the Combat mod website as well.
This is in meshview with the lighting turned off. I've game tested them, it's all fine.
Lighting is turned off. With dynamic lighting it's much darker.
I actually do have plenty of authentic patterns, but if you want to do the reskins, don't let me stand in your way.
I changed it anyway. I'll upload results when my kits are done
Ok, I'll try it out and post the results later
I could, but it won't look very good because there is a collar modeled at the top.
Knee and armpads are from the vanilla texture... there really isn't much of a point in remaking them.
I have a few different versions- I'll upload them later
Nice texture. The vest he is using is Interceptor body armor from the United States though- likely not used by Russian forces. I don't think anyone will care about that tiny detail but I still felt the need to bring it up anyway...
pls put scope on bottom rail teeheehee
It's fine. Creationism will die out soon, Europe has nothing to fear in that regard.
Germany also heavily assisted Iraq before their invasion of Kuwait.
T-Paine. He came to America on a boat.(1+ I actually love this guy (In a straight kind of way))
I recommend consuming more pineapple.
Humans can theoretically do anything that doesn't include dividing by 0.
The Holy Land.
Deer, it wouldn't be receiving land back, it would be stealing it.
The United States is flawed, but I honestly don't think giving one ethnic group power will change anything for the better- Our politics are diversifying, and the best thing about the United States is that we always reform our government before it goes to crap (much like the mcdonalds business plan) Also we get to take all the cool stuff we built when we leave.
Both Israel and the United States should retain their lands because generations not responsible for that displacement were born here. In school we actually go very in depth into the American genocide, and I think the people of Israel should educate themselves similarly.
The land was stolen but at the same time can never be returned. Simple as that.
I'm liking this. Will there be a gp30 variant?
It depends on the situation, I've never been one to get my hands messy and I feel bad about killing insects and fish let alone mammals xD- however, humans are also omnivores, and we love meat (bacon ftw). If I were in a survival situation, I would do what was necessary.
Tomatoes are harmless and quite good for you. I would offer you a BLT, but it's made of deadly virgin swine and poison berries.
The quote at the end :'). yes...just yes
German's also built all of Saddams bunkers he was hiding in during the 90's when we tore up Iraq...
bwaahaha, Obama's continuing through with the same pull out plan the bush admin had
This looks like it will feel natural with BF2. I like it!
Deer hunter, these people would much rather Make science work for religion then let science work for science. Their goals are those of the church, not humanity's common interest.
Hate mongering, no. I just have this fancy internet mask, so I might as well use it to halfassedly throw my opinions at all of you and see what happens. It's good fun.
Google search cleared that up... Still should be a bit more reflective.
for nothing xD
this is actually pretty fun to watch
I don't think 7 gave you permission to use this. Might want to check with him first.
You need to use different grass brushes so the texture doesn't repeat. Maybe add some spots of dirt too
It could use some aesthetic changes, although the textures are amazing. Try making the mag a more metallic and make the wood slightly redder... Also I don't think the muzzle/handle/trigger should have camo on them.
Thats not the point. the point is that both science and religion have evil people within them. You're part of the problem
7 had a harddrive error or something and we might have lost a bunch of content, luckily we still have our cloud version as well as my own, notice that hes using the old detail lacking 1p textures I made. Other than that development has never really stopped in the first place
Rebel forces ftw
I seem hostile in that reply :P
no, and it isnt a concept, it's a quick drawing that turned out fairly decent
one on the right: ijstcame
^makes so much sense
Well, everyone in the western world is on the internet. As you know, online, the masks are worn and the truth about humanity and our own thoughts is revealed. Religion is only good for those who need it. Some of us don't need it to direct us, and can find our own ways to be moral and ethical without fearing a divine being
IDK what kind of camo or texture you're going to give this, but I have a 2048x2048 marpat pattern (both woodland and desert) if you want them :)
Thats pretty osom
whenever you guys do an update like this I get inspired to open maya and model stuff (no matter how bad i am at modeling) good work guys
Thats the spirit
toast is hardcoded :P
new grenade and 1pmarpat textures as well ^
the 3p gun is waaay too big. looks good though
Gabe Newell ate it
nope, its the way its supposed to be :)
OF COUUUURRSSSEEEE NOOOOOOTTTTTTT. Pay no attention to the new soldiers ;) they are normal
No acogs for the MEC, only Ruskie stuff
kind of wakward looking on the stock and reciever, but, overall looks cool
I ctd when loading morning breeze :(
I agree, blocky scope. You guys could do better :)
it should be a bit higher up off of the rail
Very well done!. The model could use a little bit more detail however.
the wrists and thighs mostly, but still, me gusta!
what about it?
Good art :)
Your textures? Theyre beutiful. Nice normal maps on the other photo.
read "The Looming Tower". You will understand
Im saying that because its low res and snow doesnt stick to guns.
The asian one is the qsz-92...yea, i went there
Kind of given up on these, my recource images are gone and its all just kind of **** now. Movin on ;D
holy crap... 0.0 hey man if I want to spend a lot of time on my computer that doesnt mean I have a crappy life, I just dont have a social life
oh wow, nice textures
So glad these turned out, I was scared. Normally textures dont come out this well on my laptop :P
This looks like a job for ENB SERIES!
long and hard?
AMAZING JOB MAN! this is great :D
I used to be an adventurer like you, then I became overpowered and am now wondering why I cant just kill all the dominion people and unite skyrim myself...ooh, a butterfly :D
The barrel looks way too long, maybe its just the angle
werewolf ate his pants off 0.o
The dead guy is a seperate tex for the US soldier included by the devs as a corpse found in some piles of trash....
The rat was the only good part of the campaign... :(
Woah...Gta4 SA SQUARED???? OSOM!!!
you can only see it when you move the view around in spawn screen. In game it isnt even noticeable.
I like this a lot, all you have to do is ctrl-F anything you want and you spawn it. Great for offline. Thanks!
they called him names throughout school, but now look who has it big where it counts? everyone wants to ride this!
funny, heard that the #1 thing people fear in the world is public speaking...thats above death and rape...
PR team already made it clear they werent going to enter the choppy seas of frostbite 2.
Love it, but Maybe a bit more contrast on the camo, also keep some parts black ok
no, personal mod :P
hm, tried this map with littlebirds once and kept crashing cause of the storm....
all he did is lighten it -_-
Hes not being racist, hes just tired of that model for insurgents, hes ready for some new ones hat he cant have :)
Theres 1 :D co-op but whatever :D
Hope theres some online servers
I agree is that even necessary? and the cartels use chinese guns whaaa?
true, but why does every mod have to follow these facts? do they ALL have to be realistic?
amazing work you guys, just noticed that im not tracking this-yet :)
CALM THE F* DOWN!
"ABOVE US, THERE IS NOTHING ABOVE...BUT STARS....ABOVE!"-Zlad
still the weapon looks pretty hawt, keep it up skull!
replaces g36 right :D?
texture is too reflective
How many 10yr olds scream into your headset on PC vs PS3/Xbox-> a lot friggin less
BTW next time just tell me that my marpat is off, you dont need to be subtle about it ;D
BTW Im also remaking this one because it could also pass as snow camo, seriously, it isnt my best work xD
Vanilla M4-my texture
I like the texture a lot, but I suggest you reduce the saturation a bit for the tan parts and lighten the black a bit...
This mod is getting better and better :)
you mean the rubberband?
You guys should work for Bungie...
I know, I used some of my dads old marpat for this but the colors were a bit distorted when I saved the file for my template...just have to make a new camo, nothing hard
This isnt bad company, no Russians in BF3 :)
near the back part of the gun its too blocky
Id tap that
Strange, it isnt recognizing alpha...u saved as dxt5?
Trust me when I say they look ugly when I give them more contrast, I have tried every ACU pattern Ive made and this one is by far the best
he stares into your soul!
dev, singular :(
You people need to actually start reading the news and summary before you ask questions. No offense but its true!
Yea, the elbow is jutting
Darker blood, its too bright, we arent shooting at carebears here...
YOU KEPT MY FAVORITE BUSH FROM BF2 :D
LOVED THIS GUUN
Are there 3p crosheirs
tex actually looks good but the stock is a little pixilated
Geralt is too busy trying to look epic than do anything about it 0.o
without handlebar thingy and with scope intact, guys, its not a small scop, its a huge as* rifle
^this guy needs a leadership role in the US army
I hope DICE can pull this off, EA being d*ckheads by making them have to push this out so quickly just so they can exploit a religous holiday... Glad DICE cares about their fanbase giving them Karkand
This isnt the Karkand I remember. WE WANT DUSTSTORMS
Sgt retard, its probably because it doesnt have a texture done yet
Lol, Sgt.Retard Ive seen you comment on every mod there is for bf2 xD
Nice map, looks quite origional
