That's cool :)

An english translation will probably be pretty quick as people will use Google Translator and work from there.

Notes:

1) View at 2k quality at: Youtube.com
2) The orientation of the gun will be changed (will be held closer to actor)
3) Sound on partial reload still needs to be synced better, will do.

If I remember correctly at one point you guys said you'd be releasing the new version by the end of this year regardless of what state it's in.

Is this still the case?

I talked with K.D. a week ago and he mentioned still working on new quests, so I imagine it may not be possible to do that, but I'm just wondering.

There is no drop with actor shadow. There is a significant drop with grass shadows (play Lost Alpha with grass shadows will give you an idea). You can of course disable either of them if you want.

Hi,

There will be variation in npcs simply due to the new armors (npcs will wear them too). I won't be including variation mod though if that's what you're asking.

As for optimization, you mean things like multi-threading, 64-bit exe, less stuttering? I need an actual programmer for that (I'm only a beginner).

As for icons, I'm a fan of fancy icons as well so they will be sexified once the mod is in it's later stages.

I only know English, so if people wanted it localized for other areas they'd have to contact me and volunteer to do so.

We're not ready for any localization yet though.

That's possible to do, but it would require a lot of new, complicated animations to do it. I'd rather avoid that, plus I'm spoiled and like being able to get instant attachments.

I'll discuss it with the rest of the team though and get their input, so it's possible.

You're speaking of DX8, not 9. Static lighting is DirectX8.
Yes, this mod would likely have the same issue.

I flat out don't support Static Lighting and may remove that renderer entirely. Sorry.

I was controlling the recoil in the videos my aiming my mouse down to counteract it, but yes it will be tweaked further.

I think the problem is that I uploaded a 60fps video in 1080p to Youtube. I know Youtube now supports up to 4k and 60fps, but maybe the combination of 1080p and 60fps was too much for it? I shouldn't have blamed Shadowplay as I just looked at the video on my PC and the quality is fine.

Shoker used a 3rd part binary file to do new stuff, whereas this feature is directly part of the game's code and requires no scripts or anything to work, so yeah it is kinda new.

The thing is it's very hard to support every individual FOV.

r_populik did well in releasing a 67.5 FOV (default) for OWR, as well as 75 FOV. Both of those are common.
90 FOV is not really common unless people are gaming at very high resolutions on big displays.

I cannot guarantee that 90 FOV won't cause some guns to clip, as so far myself and fart_blad (who aligns sights for me after doing his animations) are generally using a 75 FOV, so adjustments may be required.

To go further on this: If I wanted to I could be a **** and make the Saiga jam all the time until you modify the gas system, but I don't want to turn people off from using it so I won't.

Basically what I'm saying is although I am taking the above seriously, I also want to find a good balance between realism and gameplay.

Update: We plan on trying to get proper specular mapping working rather than using universal specular lighting in the game. K.D. gave me some tips on how to do that, so I'll get started on it.

Realistic damage is already in their per OWR, but I do plan on stuff like what you said about AR's vs. AK's, etc.

Hint: SPECULAR LIGHTING!!!!!!1

Implementation: by K.D. (who is a God in my eyes, thanks for the help man :) ).

Currently everything in-game gets specular lighting + gloss map lighting. Obviously gloss maps now need to be adjusted drastically as they are much, much brighter with specular lighting enabled as well.
Will be making this so that it only happens on certain models, so that the performance hit isn't as big and everything looks good.

I understand, no worries.

My Misery remark was low, and I do realize Misery is becoming the new "Complete" with some people, and I wasn't sure if that's where you came out or not.

I apologize, and let's continue to be friends :)

Sounds like you're dealing with a lot right now, hope it cools down for you.
