Extra weapons mod aims to add more World War 2 weapons to your inventory with the best 3d models, textures and sounds that are availlable and that the game engine allows. All the while without replacing any of the stock weapons.

Mod's status in 2024

News 1 comment

Hello everyone! Here is an update on the mod’s progress and future development paths.

Unfortunately some real-life related stuff came up that will require me to divert attention from the mod. With the mod aproaching the 3rd year of development, I’m affraid it might enter development hell and I’ve said before that I would rather release it unfinished instead of letting it become another dead mod.

However at this stage the mod is too unfinished so in order to release it I have decided to make the following cuts:

There will be no multiplayer part;

I understand that I previously said that the mod would have a multiplayer part where it could give the custom weapons to players. Unfortunately I’m still learning how to mod this game as I go and it would eat too much of my time.

It would have required to figure a way for the scripts that I have to work properly with the mod, create new player classes and 3d models in order for the players to get the custom weapons and their respective upgrades.

If I manage to make the multiplayer part it will be released seperatedly some time later.

It will be a client/single player only mod;

I also intended for this mod to be played in servers that did not run it. Unfortunately many people complained that in the pervious version of the mod the surfaces of the weapons became invisible or their animations did not play properly.

I finaly gave up on compatibility with other servers when I started experiencing crashes during testing.

Compatibility with other mods;

I’m aware that many of you intend to play my weapons mod with other mods. The mod currently has files that allow compatibility with custom campaigns where you are given the custom guns and attachments that do not appear in the main campaign. But that’s where it ends.

I was creating compatibility files within the mod but when I found myself having to make seperate ‘merge’ files to work with other mods I decided that it was best if I simply edited the strictly necessary files for the mod to work properly. I was pretty much working on my mod and other people’s mods at the same time and that was eating too much development time.

Optimaly if you run my weapons mod with other mods, it should be with mods that do not also mess with the weapons aspect.

Current state;

The 3D development part is nearly ending. Almost all of the weapon models are done. The only weapon models left to make are the Webley-Scott 1910 pistol, Beretta 1934 pistol, reintroducing the High-Standard Silenced, applying attachments to weapons that still don’t have them (Silencers, scopes, extended magazines, etc…), properly code in the Panzerfaust into the heavy weapons slot and correcting some editing errors on the 3D models.

What is left to do?

The only fases left to develop will be the textures and sounds.

Converting sounds will be very easy and hopefully will be done quickly.

Textures might be harder since I’ve found and have been testing some neat shader combinations that will make the weapons overall look awesome.

I did previously post a video of the new Kar98 model showing off these shader effects.

Here is another example with the MP40:

And a more complex one where 2 reflections on the scope lens move inverted to each other

lens2


lens3


With these changes hopefully the mod might be released by the end of 2024 or 2025 without sacrificing too much of the quality.

See you next time.

It's good that there will be multiplayer separate from the singleplayer, although it will take longer it will be good

Bro, I know that creating mods and making them work correctly are very demanding and that is appreciated by their consumers, this mod is the best, the quality is noticeable with each update you released.

It seems that ModDB's video player doesn't support MP4 videos.

The file has already been changed to AVI format, now just need to wait.

*Edit: The video plays now.

Is there any possibility of adding the m2 flamethrower in the game?

I've considered adding the flamethrower but it would require to change all the files in the mod to properly code it in. Maybe in Update 4 I'll add the Flamethrower.
