Well with all that autoaim I guess nobody will have to worry about having to aim.

you still have to aim there isn't any what I would call auto aim. you do get punished if you don't aim properly. as Praz said plenty of movement stuff comes into the equation. I've only been testing for a short while but it's definitely a challenge to always get the perfect shot on an enemy

I don't see any auto-aim...

Are you talking about the little target indicators under each player?

Yeah, those are the teammate indicators - they are being repositioned to the chest of the teammates.

I think your getting confused with all the markers showing where his team mates were... I thought it was autoaim at fist but if you watch in full screen you can see the crosshairs and it didn't look like there was any autoaim...

Auto aim? I don't notice any?

There are locational hit boxes (as in chest and stomach hits take away more than legs arms - head shots are even more effective. Also there are a lot of player-movement based activities such as iron sights, sprinting, and more... a lot gets taken into the equation when it comes to combat.

Don't worry.

A.) You're models were built far too sloppy and couldn't be used.

B.) We had to re-design most guns and re-model them.

You may contact Dec and Peder (as well as Werd (texture artist) for more information.

Yeah sure, except that quite obviously is my rifle model you're showing off in the video.

"You're models were built far too sloppy and couldn't be used."
You are models, nice one. Seeing as you have no 3d skills whatsoever, this quite probably is a weak attempt at insulting mine. Nice try though.

Nah, don't need to contact anyone else on the team, you know what to do buddy.

HellSpike, its as simple as this.

You are no longer the author of this rifle. You are one of them, yes. And years ago, both when you joined the forums and signed up and received developer access, and through a verbal agreement between you and my self, any work made for the game was for the game. Period. Authors of the work will be fully credited, and here's the authors of the FNC-30.

dec_is_ruler - recompiling, decompiling, full weapon edits, muzzle flashes, other bones and attachments

Mix_Tape: animator

Gabe - animator

ET: Model reconstruction

And various other authors that brought down the poly count and removed that otherwise confrontation and questionable modeled statement inside the model.

So. You're options - Either contact all of those developers and have every single one of them tell me they don't want that weapon included. Or take me to court and otherwise have your name in the credits.

This is the last I'll be responding to you, as I have very little respect for you, and I do not wish to see you on this page again.
