[S-WIP] Default model M1-Garand

09-20-2003, 09:24 AM
I've been MIA for some time now, just really busy with things. This is the first thing I've worked on for DOD in a few months so it doesn't look too great. I've taken |3ruTaLiz@tioN's wood skin from his Enfields and hacked them onto the Garand. I also browned the default metal slightly as well as darkening it. I don't know if I'll release it, tell me what you guys think.

Picture of the WIP here. (http://www.shade-of-grey.com/stuff/pub_upload/brwoodgeniemetaltest2.jpg)

Please note that I had to compress the pic to 100kb to upload it, the wood and metal is blurred a bit in that pic, but not in-game.

Comments suggestions?

For some reason with the default garand ( to me ) you either have to change both the metal and the wood or else it wont look good. The default garand metal only matches with the default garand wood.. I dunno its hard to explain. Make some custom metal and ( in my opinion ) it will look better. :\

The wood looks great, but is it just me or is the stock darker than the other wood?

It does look darker, I can always tweak it.


I filled in some areas of the skin that for some reason, didn't have the new wood applied to them so it was pure black. I also brightened up the stock. Tell me what you think.

maybe it's just the screen shots, but the wood looks a little stretched out.

It was a bit of a quick hack-job so it isnt really supposed to look great, I can tinker with it some more to eliminate stretching.
