Its been a while since we gave you an update so we thought we would give you some more information on the development and also some more pics to drool over. Remember we told you a couple of weeks ago that all the weapon models and textures were complete? Well here are some of the ones that you haven't seen before along with a little teaser for our next big map release.
Well we had to have a G3 in TA didn't we? Its design hasn't changed much since the early 50's when it was first designed and it is still widely used by military forces across the world. This one was also modeled and textured by Pixeldamage and is looking very smart. If you were waiting for a heavy duty automatic rifle then this might just do the job.
The Glock is the basic and cheap pistol for the terrorists so you will see plenty of these in the early rounds. GuyB modeled the Glock for us and Disaster did a good job of texturing it. It is perhaps not as well known as the Desert Eagle but is still useful as a Tactical backup to a bigger rifle.
You have already seen the Remminton 870 but here is the Terrorist shotgun, the good looking Mossberg 590. A bit shorter but will all the same firepower as the 870, handling this is going to be very important in the tighter maps if the Terrorists want to escape. Some Aussie teamwork saw this one completed with Nizza on the modeling ans Sampson with the very nice looking wooden texture.
The Mac-10 is a powerful weapon for the Terrorists, cheap adaptable and in the right hands quite deadly. We knew that SWAT were going to have to have an equally awesome weapon so we had to make sure that we did a good job of the MP5k and Nizza has once again excelled himself. This is the SWAT version as used by the Special Ops for covert missions - it is slightly smaller than the standard MP5 and due to the shorter bolt also has a faster rate of fire.
Modeled by Disaster and then finished by Midgard our super fast texture wizard, this is the SWAT answer to the MP5A3. Small fast and cheap these can be used as an alternative to a pistol to back up a bigger rifle. We know that these were never as well known as the MP5's so we thought we would make it look cool just so that you were spoilt for choice.
Here is a sneak preview of Laky's map: Fusion. It is set in an abandoned industrial estate so expect a grubby warehouse setting. It looks great already and is very nearly finished, all that remains is some intensive team testing to iron out the map bugs. Our next media release will be a full preview of Fusion so keep tuned for that one.
Thanks to Nizza and Igi who were very helpful in getting these weapons rendered. I think its about time for me to get started on that fusion release now...
See you on the servers,
Your TA Team.
