As similarities between weapons from world war 2 and nowadays ones are very close, it is quite easy to replace originals weapons by the new ones I want to add.

So I will gradually replace weapons from the original game with those I want to use with WolfZone mod.

Thompson to M4 carbine:

The Thompson submachine gun used during world war 2 use 11.43x23mm (.45 ACP) cartridges with a rate of fire from 600 to 700 RPM and a 30 rounds magazine.

The Colt M4 carbine and derivatives use 5.56x45mm NATO (.223) cartridges with a rate of fire from 700 to 950 RPM and a 30 rounds magazine.

So except for the caliber and the rate of fire, similarities into the game between these weapons are close enough to re-use almost all settings as is so I just increased the rate of fire and replaced Thompson animations with the M4 one I have made.

MP40 to AK-47:

The Maschinenpistole 40 used during world war 2 use 9x19mm Parabellum cartidges derived from 7.65×21mm which itself was derived from the original 7.65×25mm Borchardt cartridges, with a rate of fire from 500 to 550 RPM and a 32 rounds magazine.

The Avtomat Kalashnikova model 47 well knows as AK-47 use 7.62×39mm cartridges with a rate of fire of 600 RPM and a 30 rounds magazine.

This time too, similarities into the game are also close enough to re-use all settings with just few changes and replacing animations with those I have made.

Hello jakejakejake55,

Shooting Range is only a test level for me and also to show my work on weapons to other, not a level to be included and played in the final mod.

It's also a good way for me to practice on level making. This one for example was made in just one day.

I understand it's really boring to only shoot paper targets, so I will try to replace targets by bots for the next weapon test...

Thank you for your support, I really appreciate.

I am making that mod on my spare time and at first for me, but I shall be happy if other people like to play with too.

All feedback are valuable, but I hope jakejakejake55's comment is only based on the videos of that particular news and he doesn't read the purpose of the mod who is to "keep the fun arcade style gameplay of the Wolf:ET game" so that mod would be far from being just another boring shooter.
