Post news Report article RSS Feed Zeitgeist, The Arsenal - Part III, the Colt 1911

Part three of our little firepower-demo, this time featuring the classic Colt 1911. Iron sights, animations, sounds.

Posted by Albatros44 on Dec 18th, 2011

Hello! Hello! This is Zeitgeist calling!

The Colt 1911.

Multi-million-selling, revolutionary weapon, that has been the backbone of the Entente trench combat troops. The magazine has a capacity of 7 shots; the weapon itself is extremely reliable: snow, rain, mud, even acid don't really impress this gun. The strong cartridge makes the Colt lethal, but hard to control.

As with our last candidate, the MP18, sound and animation as well as the texture are still subject to improvements and thus WIP, but we hope you like our Colt implementation nonetheless.

Cheers and a happy x-mas time,
The Zeitgeist Dev team.

When he releases the slide, he shouldn't have to **** it again.

When he puts the mag in his left hand looks a little odd to me. Other than that it looks great!

The recoil seems a little much but then again I'm no gun expert

Actually, the Carbine M1 was developed because Colt education took way too long under combat conditions. Or, in other words, learning how to control a .45 calibre handgun took _weeks_ whereas shooting the carbine was not much of a problem after a couple of days.

Thanks though for the critical opinions everybody, that stuff is always helpful, even if it's about a feature we've included intentionally; in that case, we can clarify that specific point for the rest of the community who probably had similar thoughts but didn't write them up.

Cheers :)

Given that this is a work in progress, of course there are still things to address. Having said that, overall this is looking very clean and slick. Can't wait to see more :)
