Definatly Like this Garand Model, I love using the garand, and this actually has the correct open bottom on the rifle.

All the others I have seen (correct me if im wrong) don't have that. :)

Best M1 Garand model for v1.0 I`ve seen, and I`ve seen a lot of.



Is there any chance of seeing this model with normal hand skin? It looks weird on "summer type" maps :S

finally, a garand more prettier than the one dillinger skinned.. ;)

Ahhh, there is a god. Great job guys!

Edit: I was just looking at the bayonet version in hlmv. It seems that when it's in empty idle, the bullets are floating over the gun.

09-29-2003, 04:40 PM
Great job on it, I only have two "problems" with it.

1. I prefer FOV corrected models, it just looks too skinny imho.
2. I don't know how the actual Garand is, but from a top-down view it get's thinner towards the end of the barrel. Sorta looks strange to me, if that's accurate my bad.

Minor side note-There is a small portion of green skin on the rear section of the gun.

It's a great job and great skin hack.

Keep it up!

09-29-2003, 04:54 PM
Looks really great. I agree with you, Genie. I hope someone makes this one with FOV.

09-29-2003, 05:06 PM
afraid i don't know what to do about the FOV thing. i know it has to do with scaling and such, but i'm not sure on to what extent it's supposed to be scaled. As to the stock narrowing towards the barrel, that is correct.

BTW, i have made many modifications to my model since Kiff decided to compile it for DoD. I will release my updated version later, when i have finished my own skin. I know many of u are pleased with the skin applied to it now, but, as great of a job that kiff did, it's still a rather hackfull job, since the skinmeshes really weren't designed for my model. I assure u, i will do my best to create a skin u will all enjoy. keep ur eyes peeled in the WIP threads for shots of my upcoming skin.

weeeeee gj kiff/mr.fu

BTW: jusssssss wanted to say that i stuck grain's wood on this and it looks sweet. :\ i put the k98 bayo anims and it kindu gets messed up


09-29-2003, 06:13 PM
oh shizznickle double post :eek: err.... can't wait mr. fu:D

09-29-2003, 07:23 PM
I don't know why, but I don't like any Garand models that kinda get narrow like that going out. The one I have, the barrel looks more correct to me. Maybe the one I like is wrong, but I kinda like it better. No offense to MrFu and Kiff.

Also, is it just me, or is a lot of times a model in a 3d program, look better than the actual finished product. I mean, with a lot of models I was looking forward to, I kinda was dissapointed at the end result. No offense once again. . .

IMHO its an ok model, i still prefer Dillinger's Medal of Honor reskinned garand

09-29-2003, 07:29 PM
looks cool I llike =)

09-29-2003, 07:58 PM
hey guys, i got some work done on the skin. check out this thread for WIP shots:

Mr. Fu awesome model

09-29-2003, 10:29 PM
I've made some FOV edits and fixed the empty idle anim, and also added a few polygons to the back of the bolt, so you don't see through the weapon when loading a fresh clip. If it's ok with all those involved with this model, i will release it if you like....:)

09-29-2003, 11:21 PM
I realised why i didn't pick up on the empty idle anim, because you never see it in game due to auto-reload!

Good thing you fixed it up though. I'll be using this Garand for 1.1 as well and a long to come i think.

As for the narrow out at the end i guess it's a personal preference. I prefer the narrowed out end , other people don't like it so much. Now thanks to Marzy we have both versions!

Anyway. Well done MrFu! :)

09-30-2003, 12:19 AM
well FOV looks pretty f'ed up IMHO compared to the other version. I dont like the slanted view... GJ anyways MaRzY, the guy who requested it some posts below will pick it up when u host probably.

09-30-2003, 11:38 AM
This is the best M1 Garand Model I have ever seen, the model is perfect and the shoot sound that comes with it makes me feel like I am living the Band Of Brothers Movie, I played Glider with it and felt like a God.

I tell you all, This model is so good its Scary!

Marzy, could you release that FOV edited version? Thanks in advance.

09-30-2003, 03:06 PM
Thats a nice model MrFu, but, again, I dont like the FOV.

MaRzY, release taht now! That is great!

09-30-2003, 03:16 PM
What is FOV anyway? I'm confused....

09-30-2003, 04:19 PM
It looks good, but rather odd. It looks like the barrel is ten feet long and has a toothpick point at the end, and the information imprint looks more like it's bending in instead of out. That's all I really have to say, everything else it good.

09-30-2003, 04:31 PM
FOV means Field of Vision, I think.

09-30-2003, 05:13 PM
Motox is right, when you make the front end uber-big, it'll appear like it should in real life. For some reason the HL engine does somthing or other and makes the front appear thinner than it actually is. (I don't know the actual process or what happens but that's a general idea.)

10-01-2003, 02:41 PM
Where is the updated FOV model, MaRzY?

10-01-2003, 03:04 PM
When doing the FOV stuff, would it be possible to go kinda half and half? Like not make the front AS big as it is now, but not as small as it was?

Well the reason i've not released it is i PM MrFu709851 about if he minded if i release it, but i've not had a PM back. So this could be one of two things maybe, one he has not read his PM or he's doing his own FOV version.

10-01-2003, 05:59 PM
Ok, I'll use Grain's updated Garand till it comes out ;)

10-01-2003, 07:18 PM
sorry bout that guys. i always forget to check my PM's. I've given Marzy the goahead, so, not long now........
