Just a small post about the FN FAL for all the gun nuts out there (myself included). Artwork is up for criticism. Full CREDIT for the modeling of this beatiful weapon goes to Pete Conneely Pete-c-89.deviantart.com

Posted by N.Aaroe on Aug 7th, 2012

When I examined the beautiful FN FAL model of Pete Conneely I just fell in the love with the weapon.
It is actually a hybrid of the FN FAL and FN CAL. See the original model here:

- - - - - - - - -


Then I optimized the textures for a very unique look and gave it new cool sfx and configs.
The position of the model and hand animations have been polished also.
This special model version was introduced for MISERY 2.0 as "Azzasins FAL"

- - - - - - - - -


With the introduction of New Ordnance I was inspired to do variations of the model.
-You know that special itch where you just HAVE to do a certain artwork?
So I researched a bit and came up with 5 different profiles for this weapon:

All models are able to use grenadelauncher, sound suppressor and scopes

Looking splendid Nicolai! Really nice representation of the newer models! Though, I personally don't like the "camouflaged" one as it looks like moss is growing on top of the gun... but that's personal preference and ill likely change it for myself ;)

Well, I have no doubt that 'camouflaged' and 'personalized' profiles will be debated the most.
I chose my camo inspiration from this: Jaybe-militaria.co.uk
and I could have chosen a thousand others.

You are of course welcome to edit it however you like yourself but I went with this one because it has this gritty/custom made feel that I like as the weapon design touch for the MISERY arsenal. And moss is exactly what I wanted for it.

It's a funny thing this weapon design. There will never be a design that everyone likes. To my experience the preference of camouflage designs heavily depend on your national background.

This is a typical danish soldier look: Google.dk The funny thing is I actually do have a tendency to favour the lush green camouflage (I can relate to it more).

And of course there's the more global look Hjv.dk which is easier to relate to for more national backgrounds

Haha, indeed! I like this last one more! :) But, I think i can life with the skin ;) it's only eye candy and yeah, it fits perfectly in the concept of misery's weapon design. I sometimes forget this is still the zone! (Y)

To me it looks like someone has shot it repeatedly with a paintball gun.

Very nice, for a moment I thought you forgot the FAL, and other additions. FAL is one of the weapons I'd like to buy one day.

It looks to me like you hit the nail exactly on the head to achieve that mossy-camo look.

My favourite assault rifle, perfect combination of rifle and machine gun. I'll be sure to try to find that special model version first I can.

Is this going to replace the current FAL model (the one with that horrid red dot sight on top)?

Seeker_of_Strelok Aug 8 2012 says:

I don't mean to nitpick here or anything, but the CAL form might be a better weapon for this mod, since 5.56 x 45mm might be a more common round seen in Misery later on in the quest line.

The original FAL is a battle rifle anyways, using the larger round that some use for sniping in the west. Might be less cost effective for those trying to survive in Misery's unique game play challenges.

Just saying.


p.s. - Nice textures as always, liking the 'old' texture the best so far.

it wouldn't be much effort to chamber the old FAL in 7.62 and the newer ones in 5.56, so you could have both

and personally, I think that standard texture is the sexiest

As a shooter of both rifles, I agree with strelok and his points are right on, the FAL is heavier and better long range, I think putting them in individually the FAL and CAL would be best and then having a tech tree to turn it hybridized would be a great way to go.

More of a SCAR man myself, but can't argue with the service record of the FAL. Now the interesting part is the FAL came in two versions one being full auto/semi auto and the other being semi auto only. Still both versions where 7.62x51 with either a 20 or 30 round mag. Long story short is ultimately range wouldn't matter realisticly it'll put a hell of a hole in you up close or far away. Oh, and on a side note the mossy cammo looks pretty great.

It doesn't look like a FAL/CAL hybrid to me. Looks like an Israeli FAL. Same handguard and everything. That said, the Standard FAL looks amazing as all of your textures do, Aaroe.
