Now, sadly, UT3 is unavailable in my country and I'm to lazy to check the main page of this mod, to see it's being released on the UDK :P

You've come a long way! Glad to see your mapping, just started doing mapping myself in the UDK, takes a bit to get into eh? (yes, I know your in source, but it's similar in manner you go about creating maps) xD

Also ignore the negative comments your Locust, there's only so many ways to do a Vertical Take-off & Landing Craft, and what've you've done is on-par with the current developments in small-unit/small carrying capacity designs.

Kalenov Jun 15 2010, 4:54am says:

Looks good for a WIP, although I'd like to point out that the highest quality of dragon skin can borderline stop a .50BMG or even a round from a M19 in the right circumstances. Hell, 12g will feel like a kick in the chest but low to moderate quality Dragon Skin would stop it, to the best of my knowledge they've gone so far as to throw a live grenade under the stuff, weigh it down, and have it go off, and it -still- wasn't 100% ruined.

And as a side note, modern Interceptor Vests, when properly worn with the plates in pristine condition, can stop up to 7.62x51 on Center of Mass impacts. 12gauge, in some parts of the world (norther part of north America particularly) is the common hunting gauge for medium to large game animals. While Marines & the like tend to Train with 12 Gauge ammunition for breaching, clearing, and hostage rescue drills, in some cases 10g is used with particularly devastating results, although even then, I can hardly imagine it being used as an anti-'hardened' infantry weapon on the future battlefield.

Probably one of the few rounds that could penetrate it (Dragon Skin) would be some style of Sabbot/Flechet based round, DU core/Penetrator, for a futuristic taste perhaps a ceramic/composite casing on the shell itself to better stand the stresses of the initial 'blast' pushing the round out. After all it'd still have to be moving incredibly fast, as well as the initial amount of propellant would need to be scaled up drastically to counterbalance the weight of the DU Penetrator.

On the modeling side..

Stock needs work, although i can only imagine you'll make it taper a bit better, configure it out to be more of the classical full stock & pistol grip.

Assuming the ejection & feed port is on the bottom of the weapon? Also I assume this is a High Poly asset designed for use baking to a Normal Map? Because that's a lot of geometry/triangles to be running on the muzzle there.

Honestly wasn't the 'first' release declared Late Alpha/Early Beta -anyway-? I mean hell, if you look at 90% of the games on the market, from Alpha to Finished Product, they go through unimaginable shifts.

Hell, Halo was an RTS for the Mac & Half Life was about a character that looked rather Space-Biker-Ish.

Dwarfs are NEVER fat. Infact if you look them up, the sheeting of their musculature is simply denser, and layed out in a different pattern. They aren't 'miniaturized' humans, while the organs are the same the structure isn't while the base principles of the muscles are the same; the layout, isn't.

Actually WH40k Fluff says its projected onto the 'back' of the retina (not sure how that works lol) and its only the more Advanced targeting, or Tech Marines, that would have a 'HUD' so to speak. Everything else is Psycho-Indoctrinated triggers, that when preformed that display small, minimalistic cues onto the eye itself.

Atleast, that's how I understand it.

However, Targeting Systems (Heavy Weapons/Devastators) would have something like a 'crosshair', and targeting system as you see in the start of DC.

Remember, even though they are space marines, they are soldiers, not cyber warriors, the bolter has about as much of a crosshair as a M16 :P

I believe the only chapter that would probably out-right have Aim-Assist Targeting, standard, would be the Iron Hands.

Kalenov Sep 20 2009, 11:34pm replied:

Can we see the reference? It looks a *bit* more like the Original then the A1 Series.

I take it this is from a WW1 Model? Most of the weapons have 2 Pins in the handle, verses the Three you have there. If your referencing it off of a Pearl Handle one, it'd be better to do the 'center' dot shall we call it, in the texture and normal mapping.

Also from this viewpoint, the slide is continuous against the barrel. Flat, instead of a movable part. Safety catch on the slide is also missing; the 'thumb' for the clip ejection would be a cylinder with a textured/beveled head.

Rear bottom of the grip (the 'wooden' or 'pearl' part I guess you would call it), should flare out a bit more. The hammer is a bit more 'PeaceMaker' in style, the 1911 has more of a thumb-spread to it. Also the, small 'loop' you have on the bottom there, runs angled -with- the rest of the clip/butt, while yours juts out at an opposite angle almost.

The 'slope' of the slide, ie; the sides, are a bit more 'boxy' I guess would be the term, while its not a complete square, it is 'beveled' (for lack of a better term), verses the smooth, all most round as you have it.

Ironsights should be based off of a 'dot'/Cylinder, with two forks coming out of it, lining up with a single extrusion on the end of the barrel. Front of the slide should also be stepped back a little, to allow for the extrusion of the 'barrel'.

While I understand the viewpoint *is* limited in this render, some Wires and a better view of the object would be better to post up.

All comments I've made here, I really mean constructively. And I hope no one takes offense. Modeling is tough, personally I suck at it :P, but I hope this helps.

Also; - Reference, might come in handy.

I fail to see how you get away with saying 400 isn't bad for a "gaming PC" I built mine, with some rather handy deals from newegg & tiger direct, that runs crisis just fine on medium and with minimal loss on high, for about 250-275 :S

Also; its basically impossible at this point, to the best of my understanding, to run Crysis on the 360. Simply put, the 360, doesn't run mods at this point. (Or probably ever, <3 you Tuesday Update for killing Free60)

As per the PS3, I believe, believe, it has been showcased running mods correct? But I believe, those are only for the Unreal 3 Engine.

Your concept, is rough around the edges and very ambitious, I wish you well, all be it I also want to say this might be something you want to put on the back burner, till you have a slowly built up portfolio and skill set in Modding/3D, etc. Granted, I know I'm not one to talk considering I only have a minimal set of Modeling skills, but you have to understand the...monumental amount of work you have listed there.

Also gotta ask, were did you come up with the idea that creating a great mod, would lend twords your being hired by a game studio?

Yes a, "great" mod would help this, I'm sure, but hardwork by the individuals; not necessarily because of this mod, would earn the person that chance. Bluntly put, not all of a 'team' dedicated team would get hired, if any at all.

Very, very nice, but if I may make a recommendation (and this is just my opinion), shortening the barrel, and changing it's classification from an Assault Rifle to a PDW (Essentially an AR, in the SMG weight range.), I just think with a properly railed front (like you have there), beveled down front ( G36C as an example), would look brilliant.

Kalenov Aug 24 2010, 9:23am says:

Now, from previous comments I've gathered your running some type of solid-state caseless projectile (Similar to those being tested in Metal-Storm applications, etc.), so barrel length might not be a huge issue, however the standard 47" overall/16"-20" barrel AR-style feels a bit more, well AR then DMR (Although this issue with the length, might be related to the perspective). Might just be me because I've grown so used to my own DMR, but the Free Floating RIS there should run to about 1-2 inches behind the flash hider, typically because the DMR fills the roll between support-snipers and the average infantryman, they run a Bipod of some kind (may I suggest a Harris-styled?) along with a Vertical Fore-Grip for added dexterity for off-hand/bone support shots.

Also I see your running backup/MBUS styled flip-sights, very nice, but the reason the forward sight is as far "forward" as it typically is, is due to the fact the farther distance you have between the Rear and the Front to "draw a straight line", the more accurate your ironsights will be, out to a greater range. Sorta like the differences between say an AKs "short" sights, and an ARs "long" sights. Both weapons can be insanely accurate in the right hands; but it takes less mis-alignment on the AK with its short sights, to throw you off target then it does the AR styled sights, with further spacing between them.

Again, not trying to be a ****, just offering my 2 cents ^^

actually I agree with your sense on the proportions, but if you look at the art-style for these concepts in general, this is kinda how it works. Looks brilliant, and Maniac I'd like to see you do better :P

wow a bit late in this, but know the reason IPSC/USPSA shooters get the scope mounted to the body, not the slide right? Cause, the slide recoils :P Ie; you'd lose any ability to use the red-dot/scope between shots, also forcing you to go through and re-adjust for each shot.

Also again not to nit-pick but the flashlight mount would be attached to the lower rail, bellow the slide, not going up and around it :S

Other then that I actually have completely loved the direction your going in, a slightly futuristic M9 so to speak. Now just watch, I'll be trolled for bringing up those two *tiny* issues :P

Actually if you look closely, from what I can tell, its the classical M16/H&K417 design, compounded with the KRISS Super V & an L96. Also all things considered, I gotta ask you do you even understand why the SCAR was created?

Each country participating in any major arms race typically runs trials, the XCR and the SCAR where the finalists here in the US to replace the M16 in the, you guessed it, SCAR Trials; thus replacing the 'stamp'/'standard' Infantry Rifle. SCAR (as you know it, not referring to the trial-name itself.) won (****** reason too, but we won't get into that.) so, as per real-steel weapons, you'll seeing more 'SCAR inspired' weapons in any realistic future.

Anyways, it's a rather brilliant design, the ejection port is a bit high if that's what it is, but I'm loving it! :D

Texture contrast/saturation seems to be off comparing it to the building behind it; and the -massive- tank next to it. Also seems to be some issues with the bright greens not having defined lines/edges, might just wanna 1px black edge those. That or there's stretching issues on the UV map. (Or its missing an AO pass from the Highpoly; if the engine even uses normal maps, never played around with C&C3 before)

The concentrated 'detail' (plate lines/body lines) on the tank looks ridiculous compared to the simple lines of the mastodon, seems to me that you need to unify all the textures to make everything more cohesive.

For the bases, are we looking at a Heroes of Might and Magic style construction system? Ie; one building per 'turn', or a relative amount of turns for each piece of construction, and you don't control the placement of the buildings, or will we be looking at more of a heavily interactive placement as seen in games like Battlezone 2/C&C Renegade/etc?

If I may make a recommendation; I understand its supposed to be some form of android, as such it needs an organic & inorganic feel, stiffening the edges around the 'pads'/'armor of the legs, and the central circle's walls (the one of the characters left side/viewpoint right side)could use a touch of it as well.

The collar feels like a space-helmet's locking collar, and I like that actually, after seeing the painting you did on the previous model I have no doubt you'll be able to pull that look off, but making it feel/seem more like a machined piece of metal, stiffening/pinching the edges down, and smoothing/flattening the stiff areas around the 'holes' you see there, would go a long way.

I know I'm no master at this, infact I'm far from even being able to do what you've done there I'm sure, but I took some time and highlighted areas that seem to need more refinement, *this is just my opinion remember*

If I may make a recommendation as well, the 'joining' area, between the 'collar' and the suit, look like poorly defined cables/tubes, might just be me but I'd love the look of two black, ribbed cables/tubes there. I used that for a Borg/Evil-Cyborg piece I worked on awhile back, simply adding the 'ribbing' you see there on the center, would make that joining area look amazing.

I know its not supposed to be exact in anyway; but heres just my 2-bits. Pitch the shocks back twords the rear wheel a little more, extend the connection bar from the top of the springs, out to the front of what looks like the connection point/axle.

Titling the headlights back, as well as lowering the top (and bringing up the plate) of the buggies front windshield area, letting it pitch down more, as well as 'hollowing' the 'wing's of the buggy, were the doors would naturally be on a normal car. Extend the rear rollcage out a little more as well, or the whole body the model, it wouldn't be insane harsh just, a small tug. Also, again this is all my opinion, I wouldn't've created the Axles, like that, using them as a separate mesh and joining them into it later, would add more detail and would look cleaner then a simple block.

I know this model is *far* from a In-game, but those are just my 2-bits, goodluck ^^

While orks can be equal to space marines; Imperial Guard face them -regularly- on a lot of battlefields, the touch of Corruption that the Plague Lord Nurgle brings in, adds a bit more depth in my opinion, and matches the 'infected' theme. I believe it was shortly after the battle (or durring) for Apocalypse/Apocalypse Campaign, that a plague daemon (or perhaps Nurlge his-pestilential self)brought forth a Zombie-Plague, that would raise the dead.*

(*Also Seen twords the end of Space Wolves; Book 2)

As per it being Ogryn, they are known to fall to chaos, but wouldn't it be a bit harder to remodel it into an Ogryn form, also considering they wouldn't move the same way, new animations/new bones/etc would need to be rigged and animated (as far as my understanding goes.) So I think this works, and this concept art has been great guys, keep it up!

2nd reply (and I hope double posting isn't against the rules), but this game is great, I'll admit the puzzles at times were a *tiny* bit weak, but I feel thats beacuse the Board tool was to big, the tiny 'pips' or 'rivets' on the end, 1 set of those (say the right side) is what needs to be shaved off in my opinion.

Also the inertia from death on some levels (happened to me twice) *can* carry you backwards off the platform when you respawn. It's not a big deal but just something I thought you might want to know.

Other then that, my only wish besides more levels *no doubt this is happening lol* is some sort of level editor. I think designing and sharing your own maps for something like this would really bring it a step farther.

But, all in all, its a 4/5 Game, I didn't give it a 5/5 simply because of the inertia glitch I described above =\ if one was on a set amount of lives, that would be infuriating.

Also the Camera movement, the panning on the screen, seemed to be a *touch* slow, I'm not fully sure why this is, but yeah. It just seemed that way to me at least, might not for others, but as I've said, this is just my opinion.

Oh P.S. make the Erase icon a little bit better, or a bit easier to see, maybe its my short attention span; or the fact I haven't slept in awhile lol, but I actually didn't even notice it till my 2nd new game, because I couldn't erase the props/structures given to complete the level.
