Flag Model Idea?


01-16-2004, 10:31 PM
Hmm....an Idea dawned upon my head tonight...Instead of flag models, why not have a kar98/garand with a german/american helmet on top sticking out of the ground....and have the straps of the helmet blowing in the wind? Sorta like a flag...but not lol. Anyone? Good idea? Yes? No?

That would seriously look cool.

man that is one of the best ideas I've heard in a while!!

If someone could do this it'd be AWESOME!

However, i reckon a *little* piling of dirt around the base needs to be implemented so that it doesnt look like it's just floating there.

I banged this out in 15 minutes. Its fully incorporated into the flags.mdl.

I'll do the axis and brits tomorrow.

like i said earlier, it needs dirt piling up at the bottom or something to hold it up.

actually, just thought of this....how about 3 rifles forming a tripod, with a helmet on top. Ive seen pictures of this before that the soldiers used to do

we could also use it for a mapmodel, some kind of grave?

01-17-2004, 09:33 AM
Woah cool you guys liked the idea! lol. Yeah waffle's right....a small dirt base would have to be added to make it look realistic.

As for your version Grain....I like it alot, but see if you could use a higher poly rifle...it would look much nicer :cool:

and what of the flags that arent on the ground? like the middle flag on avalanche.. I'd be willing to do this.. but its gonna look strange on some maps..

hah ! i love it :D

It's very cool though it won't fit every map, like the tank in donner and stuff :o

Trigger is there any Garand P or W with a bayo? The K98 and Enfield already have one so thatís not a problem.

oh and the "hook" thingy's they "linked" the garands with was by the front of the gun so they barrel would be sticking up and rested on the stock

Iím just going to use the defaults and the bayo Garand. Iím am busy with school and work so I donít have a lot of free time. If someone wants to make a high Polly version be my guest. Anyway itís done all I need is hosting. Iíll email Canuck but he usually takes awhile. If someone wants to host it right away I'll email it to you if you post your address.

Awsome job dude, I love 'em.And as for the rifles looking strange on some maps...who cares? :D I just thought up of the idea for something to look cooler than flags...:cool: Well....a spot in the credits would coo foe meh

personaly i like the flags cause it seems kinda pointless to risk your life trying to capture a weapon and helmet, when you already have both, then again risking your life for a flag is very smart either... not that i do either as im usually tryin to save teammates arses. but its a kool idea i give it that.

01-17-2004, 11:35 PM
lol, I get where ur commin from kettenhund.... I just think that it will make certain maps stand out more and add to the coolness of dod lol... and Grain, as for others making higher poly versions of these, I'm 100% sure they will improve them. IE, Add animated straps blowing around, higher res skins/models... If you feel up to it, you can AIM me the files for testing and ingame feedback and whatnot at AAdrumma94..

What happened to the release thread it seams to have disappeared.

01-18-2004, 03:06 PM
You had a release thread for these? I didn't see it....Hey! where'd it go!?

Captain Dan
01-18-2004, 04:04 PM
yea, where did it go? (i need malarkey's version where the height of the rifles are corrected so they arnt in the ground too far)
