"Covering fire!!"

I thought it was time for my first blog, and evidently our [B][U]400th Devblog![/U][/B]

So hi, I'm CT. I started playing around .95, I started modding here when someone needed a new texture for the Sherman tank, and then I just worked on more things from there. When I'm not mucking around in photoshop I'm working towards my Aviation Technologists diploma, which is fancy for I want to be a commercial pilot somewhere :razz:

I figured after our WW2 beta you guys are thirsty for more :grin: so without further wait

[B][CENTER][SIZE="5"]The M1919A6 BROWNING .30 CAL machine gun[/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]




Please remember all this is still [B][COLOR="Red"]WIP![/COLOR][/B] Im only going to go over the texture side as the rest will come in a later highlight


As you can see, there are 4 different layers, 3 of which are usually used in all of our weapons. [I]NOTE:[/I] I called it an alpha, technically its called the Opacity map, its used in the alpha channel in the refractor engine. The alpha is either a specmap or used for transparency like in the barrel guard in this case.

So here's a really basic go though of how I textured the browning after the model was ready. If you can read my writing that is, its not so good on a tablet :-P


Thanks to everyone that played WW2 beta! Were still working hard at it dont you worry ;-)

    Don't tell me this is just going to be in WW2 PR ?
    Some unconventional kits could benefit from this thing...

    It's ok that this gun didn't really gain popular use in the US Army until November/December of 1944, it is still cool

    It looks so strange to have a browning machine gun receiver but have a stock behind it instead of having it mounted on a tripod.

    Looks sweet.

    Will the sounds for the .30 cal stay the same?
