Or just use it as a STG44 replacement like Bittles and Whiskas old FG42 model. That said very nice work, but the machining cut for the slide on which the bolt carrier works on extends into the handguard. I'm assuming you know this, and just haven't gotten to the process yet of cutting up the handguard for it.

11-07-2005, 05:45 AM
Awesome! Make it a replacement for now for the STG44!! Different clip size but then at least you can use the auto/semi switch.

You assume correct.

Looks good.

Not a techincal question, just a preference question, why did you choose the earlier model over the later model? (this version it will be much harder to position hands on the the p_model)


BTW I have some very nice hi-res pics of this FG42 if you want them

11-07-2005, 07:34 AM
Thats because there wont be p_models :o

Unrelated but deciever your sig is wrong, the end of the FD quote is

"si pwn u" not what you have CBONDU or whatever you have.

Model looks good :P

I'll hold my comments until I see a pic of the mesh for that model and the polycount :D

11-09-2005, 01:38 PM
PC is ~4000 and the mesh is clean, check the big render.

I would REALLY appreciate any pictures on the bipod. Every angle on it, is precious.

So, I can finally get this finished :P

11-09-2005, 01:53 PM
looks good nice job ;)

very sexalicious model Sproily (hope you don't mind if I call you that on here, it's shorter, and I'm lazy :p ), can't wait to see it skinned and in-game. :D

11-10-2005, 06:08 AM
I'll try unwrapping it myself and if it doesnt work out, I'll haveto bum someone an unwrap. Polygon did tell me he'd skin it tho. I will do it too, though if he loses intrest.

Thank you, Wile.

edit. Wile, I didnt receive the images. I wonder whats wrong :/

edit. Uhh i know it kinda sucks

Clean out your PM box :P

Wile E Coyote
11-12-2005, 10:15 AM

11-12-2005, 10:20 AM
Yes, thanks.

11-12-2005, 10:31 AM

When the model is done, I wil be more than glad to host it at SOFW. Heck brother, I will even give it a front page welcome for all to see. Can't wait.

11-12-2005, 01:32 PM

Looks great!

Cpl. Entek
01-18-2006, 08:22 AM
This still coming out or what...?

01-21-2006, 01:29 PM
Nope, sorry.

Cpl. Entek
01-25-2006, 04:15 AM
Whadda mean nope? Why. what happened?

01-25-2006, 07:00 AM
Was too crazy to unwrap :E

01-25-2006, 09:19 AM
You sir, need to unwrap this....its must be done....for....for the community...do it...do...do....DO IT! :crazyeyes:

Please this is the one model ive been waiting for :(

01-25-2006, 09:51 AM
Sorry, I asked a very talented guy to unwrap it and he just couldnt do it, too true to the real :E and the real on is just crazy.

01-25-2006, 12:15 PM
Ahahahaa, mr. bullet-head being failed in unwrapping it, I finished my unwrap. (its very bad, mostly a joke)

01-25-2006, 01:31 PM
So the FG42 is gonna come out now?

01-25-2006, 01:50 PM
Maaaabeeeyyy, if it gets a skin :P

01-25-2006, 02:07 PM
So will the skin quality be detriment to the unwrapping?

01-25-2006, 02:37 PM
Well if the unwraps are bad it cant be skinned easily, resulting a worse result than normal, yes.

But.. in my oppinion.. they arent unskinnable :)

Wile E Coyote
01-25-2006, 02:45 PM
Just a crazy question:

Is it the scope that is causingthe unwrapping problems? because if it is, just 86 the thing. It' just on there for looks at the moment anyway (no scoped FG42 in Source)

01-25-2006, 02:48 PM
Just for looks. It doesnt cause problems.

01-27-2006, 06:09 AM
I thought people liked this model :E

It's gonna be skinned, im pretty sure. Im thinking of doing it myself now.

01-27-2006, 09:56 AM
i would love to see it get skinned :) and im sure it will have to be animated too correct ?

01-27-2006, 02:17 PM

Cpl. Entek
01-30-2006, 07:41 AM
Get this out in the next 2 months and i will cycle to your house and be your personal pet for 8 weeks :dog:

01-30-2006, 09:53 AM
:E I dont think it'll take that long :P

In the time being, visit the skinners page,



01-30-2006, 01:37 PM
That will be awsome if this comes out but i would prefer if it was another class not a replacement.

Cpl. Entek
02-18-2006, 06:20 AM
*BUMPS* before its lost off the bottom of the page forever....

(impatient geit) any news?

02-18-2006, 01:05 PM

02-18-2006, 01:51 PM
