News Update #7
Stielhandgranate

Hello and welcome to another update of Traction Wars. This month we have some renders of the M24 Grenade kindly lent to the mod by Ror-Shak, we take a look at another model licensed to the mod the Mauser 712 machine pistol by Boogie and we present two diorama scenes by the lastest developer to to join the team maniche. Welcome to maniche, we hope you enjoy your time on the team.

The M24 Stielhandgranate was the standard issue grenade from the beginning of First World War I to well into the Second. It's distinctive shape gave rise to it's nickname "potato masher". Mid-way through the war the M24 was superseded by the M43 Stielhandgranate which continued it's distinctive shape although its mechanics where completely different. It remained widely used until the end of the war. The textured model below was created by Ror-Shak who has been kind enough to lend it to the mod under license. The Mauser 712 machine pistol was produced in the early 1930s and included a fire-select between full-auto and single firemodes. The untextured model shown below has been kindly licensed to the mod by Boogie.

Finally for this months update we want to share with you two screenshots maniche produced for his trial task. Although they won't directly be in the mod we thought we would share them with you anyway.

Superb! Maniche is a hero, though I think the first map image is a little over-saturated.

I agree the first image is a little over-saturated but I must admit that I love it ;)

I mean just look how much different it looks next to the typical brown and grey environment to the right (which is also great). I am sure the real battlefields were much more entrenched which is why the darker color schemes work better for representation. However it would be nice to have some levels or areas that are untouched countryside that just turn into an impromptu fight. Kinda like the picture on the left... I'll stop ranting now, sorry ;)

Great looking mod team!

I think what's missing from this pic is that WW2 European feel. The grass, trees, foliage and even rocks don't look natural European. I think more accuracy in these details are necessary.

The scene of the beach looks just about as real as it can get! All the textures look great.
