The new screens look great, but what will become of your old Source maps? They look absolutely wonderful and if you've got no other big plans for them - and you guys are alright with it - releasing those for use in Garry's mod would be probably one of the most helpful things anyone could do. Those of us who make poses in Gmod are sorely lacking for good, detailed maps, particularly following an Eastern Bloc theme.

Oh, and by the way - the thing being thumbed on the CZ is the safety, not the slide release. The hammer isn't even cocking back as the slide locks, it seems to just clip through it and remain in the 'down' position.

Seriously dude, these need redoing, and preferably with some actual reference material. These anims are even less correct than the ones in your average CoD game.

Texture isn't finished yet, still has work to go on the bolt, barrel/gas system, front sight or mag yet. That's why they're still grey.

The MAGAZINE (clips are for M1s) is released by a button on the right side of the magwell, just above and in front of the trigger. You won't see it unless you rotate the rifle all the way left, and why the hell would you want to do that?

This appears to be a Heeres Leuchtpistole, probably a model 1928.

You realise it remained a front-line rifle, right? Converting issue rifles to marksman or sniper rifles is actually pretty common, and has been so since WWI or thereabouts

Nitpick police here: the rounds are spaced too far apart on the stripper and they also look like they may be a bit off size-wise.

The bakelite mags have a wonky silhouette owing to what I think is a reinforcing rib on the front and an extrusion on the back to aid with proper insertion. They aren't smoothly curved like steel mags or 7.62x39 mags.

Please don't just have it RT the whole time. For anyone who's ever used optics on a rifle before (or even a pair of binoculars) it just looks wrong. The only time you can see **** through any form of optical sight is when you're directly lined up with it, and even then if your eye relief is out the sight picture will be blurred, constricted, or otherwise bad. While you're not actually aiming through the sight, all you should see is the reflective coating of the lens.

Most people probably don't care (or know any better), but it seems nobody can be bothered to put in the effort anymore (even Insurgency, which did it originally, changed it for some retarded reason).

rossmum Jun 3 2010, 5:49am replied:

It does, but it's about as controllable as you could expect any full-auto firing 7.62x54R to be and thanks to a light barrel, it's incapable of sustained fire. In short, it's more for close quarters or maybe VERY light supporting fire in a pinch. It's not something you'd use on auto very often.

I fail to see how pointing out that not every Russian is caucasian is racist. Most people utterly fail to realise that Russia spans two continents and a whole shitload of different ethnic groups, so if anything the comment I was replying to was the racist one.

Personally both sides **** me off, because neither has any concept of when 'defence' ends and 'attack' begins. It's become a self-perpetuating mess.

It was used in every environment the Soviets fought in, including plains, forests, and during the winter. It wasn't just used in Stalingrad. Also, no sane sniper is going to stand so their barrel is overhanging a window, no matter how well-camouflaged their rifle is.

Because PMCs (don't start me) tend to fit them with retractable mounted M134s. I think the Secret Service does too, but I wouldn't know for sure; might be a few special forces around that use them.

You do realise, right, that the mask filters air so you can breathe safely? If the filter ***** up and you're still in a contaminated you're in deep trouble, but if it happens in clean air, you'd just keep breathing. There's no risk at all of suffocation unless you decided to vacuum-seal the air inlet, and you'd have to be suicidal to do that anyway.

It's the same deal with the remapped Dear Esther. They both look incredible, but they're both running on Source. Valve don't like straining the engine, they prefer to keep games accessible to everyone rather than make them look stunning but only run on top-end PCs.
