and why in the world would it need scratches and dirt? that's quite stupid, it's like the phoenix don't take care of their guns.

Maybe I should make it more noticeable but you can see that the chin rest and the where you hold the front of the gun up has some wear on it. all the edges on the metal have wear, I just didn't want to go crazy with it.

I see that constructive critisism isn't accepted well here ... So I should simply write (like bazylion of other ppl.) "This is amazing!"? I noticed that textures could use some dirt and scratches and You act like stupid kid (YOU SHALL NOT FLAME THIS MOD, DIE!). Think, before You write.

no constructive critisism is fine but texture needing more damage is very vague and does not help the artist. Also what is the fascination that none can look after their gun and must look very damamged.

First off, thank you for taking my criticism so well. I really hate it when people go apeshit because I try to suggest to make their stuff better.

Anyways, it's just the texture of the body - it seems like someone just generated a cloud texture and placed it on. I'm not sure how I'd fix it, and I understand how annoying this is, but it does need fixing. Try adding a specular map. It looks pretty shiny here: Desmond.imageshack.us . Also, I'd try increase the grain a tad, and make the wear color slightly less saturated. It doesn't need to look like it's been through hell and back, but at the same time, not right from the factory. In WWII, for example, I heard a lot of guns were from WWI. Maybe no one will notice it when being wielded, though.

Oh, also, I read about that oily fingerprint thing - that's genius.

In fact, the moderately maintained sporting .22lr rifles are in good shape for years. As for the skin; in my opinion metallic parts shouldn't be tampered with, only few minor deficiencies on plastic and rubber.

I feel like the texture on the stock could be improved. It's not a bad texture it just feels very bland. Maybe make it darker with more pronounced shadows. And it might add a bit more character if you added some sling mounts to the model. Other than that it looks great!

The scope texturing looks OK, but there's just something about the body texture I'm not enjoying so much. Perhaps, as other people said, it needs more wear-and-tear in general. If this gun were to be used by people fighting the Combine, it would appear to have more scratches on the metal and some paint wearing and chipping away.

I'm a texture designer myself and if I can offer a few suggestions, it really does look like a cloud texture overlay on a solid color. What I would do is put a grunge texture over the diffuse and change the blending mode to "multiply" then decrease the opacity. This will give the texture a more grainy and more realistic look. And don't apply dents or gouges, it makes the gun look like it was thrown through a garbage disposal. Apply a very few small nicks here and there for a bit more realism, and apply a few specks of dirt or maybe a few light stains. Don't go overboard with it though, as it looks fake and cheap then. Just do what you think is right and it will look right.
