MP41 replacement for MP40

08-12-2006, 11:25 AM
Has anyone considered modelling an MP41 replacement for the MP40? I know I'm not the only one who'd like to see it. And also, if possible, a buttsmack animation to replace the punching one.

I like the idea, but not very sure about the buttsmack animation... It'd have to be pretty darn quick, esepecially to try to keep up with how fast the current assault melee's can be spammed, which then brings the problem of actually animating the buttsmack (or more specifically, the timings of it).

If the buttsmack would be used in "realtime" (each buttsmack animation is of the same duration as each punch was), it would just look pretty silly swinging the entire weapon around so rapidly over and over, if one were to spam this animation - Otherwise, if there was an artificial delay introduced, so that the buttsmack animation would "feel" more natural and usefull, then the animations would mislead the player a little bit anyway, which probably then wouldn't "feel more natural" anyway.

I'm sure a superfast swinging animation wouldn't make the game look any more silly than it already does.
