This is an updated Version of my Previous Skin. I have added proper lighting and shadows, fixed the misaligned wood grain just behind the receiver, and de-saturated the color a bit

Credits:
Model: Nomad
Original Skin(the metal parts): Polygon
New Wood: Grain

:D thank god for kontiki That gives me an idea. Although it would take some coding. Not all weapons IRL look exactly the same so it would be cool if there could be a random skin selector so that every time you spawn you get one of several choices of skins on your weapons, and your team mates could have different skins on their P models.

hehe that's a great idea, if it can be done :\

I think this actually can be done but I'm not positive. I know how to set this up so you have more than one skin on the same model but I don't know if it'd work in DoD and I don't really feel like testing it out. If you want to do it yourself, look at some of the Natural Selection models as they have skins for white and black soldiers and it might be chosen on random.

EDIT: Nice skin btw, I liked the first one and this one looks even better with lighting.

The metal you darkened is far too dark ( I own an M1 Garand so I do have a say in this) and the wood is pretty decent overall. I would suggest adding some darkness to the bottom and to the front wood piece.

I didn't say there was anything wrong, it's a good model, i used to use back in 3.1 etc. but I like the default model and I think nomad's model has to much polygons

The links don't work. Could someone reup the model or fix the download links?

Well done.

Internet Relay Chat is not a one-on-one instant messaging program. IRC servers are networks of filesharing, communications, and conferencing.

<3 Thanks anyway, I got a buddy of mine on IRC to send it. The model is quite sexy too, nice job! :)
