....and the best features taken out, dave_5430 might've been an *** the way he put things but he did have a point. This is not Firearms, it lacks all of the pace and strategy of the first one. This mod feels like a Modern Warfare/Counter Strike Source Mod. It retains none of feel and game play that made the first mod great. I also get tired of this mod being defended as its only "First Release". There are glaring errors and problems that should have certainly been solved in their internal beta. If you are looking for a run and gun game like CSS but better (not that hard to do) pick this game. If you are looking for a strategy FPS with realism, look elsewhere.
Run and gun gameplay? Check. Little to Zero strategy? Check. Attachment system? Check. ******** weapon damage rates? DOUBLE CHECK. Yes, it is ALOT like Call of Duty and CSS mixed together (unfortunately).
He may be a little too angry about it, but he does have a point. This is not Firearms, it is a Call of Duty HL2 mod.
Still think the V-Spec II is far prettier Moddb.com
Pretty amazing that this ROAD CAR can do over 265 mph
I have plenty of free paged pool memory (few things run in the background anyhow), and I have been using mat_queue_mode 2 (I use that tweak in all source engine games I run). It just doesn't seem to want to be all that stable. I have seen that the damage rates are to be increased, but to be honest "30%" and "66%" are still too low to create a game that isn't just based on 'run and gun'. My main issue with this mod is that it does not "bring the best aspects of the Firearms(hl1) Mod to the source engine" it rather discards them in favor of a more fast-passed Arcade, Call of Duty type FPS, instead of the strategic aspects that made Firearms(HL1) a truly great mod.
I'm sorry as much as I wanted to like this mod really I do not. The damage rates are nowhere near where they should be, recoil on several weapons are....strange to say the least and it seems to crash way more than it should (I have no problems with any other source mods or games). I realize that this is the first release but these are errors that really should have been resolved in an internal beta. There also seems to be little to none of the strategy that made Firearms for Half-Life 1 so enjoyable, unfortunately it seems like this mod has fallen into the run-and-gun type FPS that we all have Call of Duty to thank for. That being said, its still a thousand times better than the joke of a game called Counter Strike Source.
Love this game.

Great video, steering seems a bit "springy" at the moment however.
those lights look great.
Intresting headlights, not sure I like the blue in front of the air scoop. Did Koenigsegg at least have the good sense to install a rear spoiler on this version?
best version of the GTI
Well after driving it all around Jamaica (in various road conditions---including area where there is basically just a dirt track) I can make the following observations: Brake and throttle response are complete rubbish, you have about 3-4 inches of pushing before the car "knows" you are pushing on the brake/throttle. Break is very sharp and sudden when (finally) engaged as well. Gear changes are also not very smooth, the car will sometimes lurch into a lower gear (it is an auto-transmission unfortunately) without warning on a flat road while your foot is depressed on the throttle. Best way to drive this car with auto-trans is to continuously shift the gear lever into the appropriate gear (L,2,3,D) for where you are (towns, or open road) and what you are doing (ex. shift DOWN to 2 if overtaking). Many parts of the exhaust hang too low under the car so its very easy to bottom out on a very rough road (there are plenty here). Car is slow, but not unbearably so (at least with 4 people including driver) but if loaded with luggage and people it will struggle to overtake or climb a steep hill, the lack of power WILL get to you after awhile as overtaking and speeding up quickly after breaking hard here is something you do frequently. Only real advantage with this car here in Jamaica is her size. If you go to Jamaica and rent and plan to be driving many places, best bet is to spend a little more money on something slightly larger, with more powerful specifically and with all-wheel/four-wheel drive.
One of the few Alfas I really like (along with the old Alfa 75, and the Twinspark). Very pretty car. Great chase scene featuring the 159 here Youtube.com from Quantum of Solace
Just posted an Alfa, never been a huge Alfa fan my self but even I have to admit the 159 is a pretty car.
As far as posting images I believe it falls under Fair use ( En.wikipedia.org ), as this is non-profit, and for educational and commenting on.
I believe it, the steering is not exactly.....precise.
I definitely agree, it would be very useful to have a clear all button for updates. Comment notification would be nice too. It would certainly help those of us that watch many mods.
Its the first day of the 2010 World Rally Championship. First stage is the Uddeholm Swedish Rally taking place from February 12th-14th. Wrc.com
There are many tracks around the world that will usually do a "track day". Where you bring and race your own car. Best way to find out is ring the closest track near you and ask if they do track days.
amazing, no other word for it.
Simply superb, can't wait to use that FNC
