Shedding a little light.

Hey guys, hope you all are enjoying v1.0.
Here's a little sneak peek on one of the new things we have in the works.

Tim's doing up a wonderful 'generic' flare gun to be used by both unconventional and conventional forces for illumination and signalling. The texture, audio, kit allocation and illumination effect are still being worked on.




40mm UGLs will also tout a new parachute flare round, which will function as a means for a squad to illuminate a large area for up to under a minute, allowing the squad to more effectively fight under low light conditions.

By Tim as well (a real sport, considering this next model isn't really a test of his hi-poly modelling skills..), is the M17A1 Flare Launcher (colloquially referred to as the Pop Flare), which is a one-shot self-contained flare launcher, fired by slamming the bottom of the launcher.


A 2D sketch mock, planning the animation for the Pop Flare.

Look forward to playing with these toys in a future patch!

    The flare pistol looks like a commercially-available 25mm Orion flare pistol, though I don't recall seeing them using flares that protruded past the end of the muzzle.

    How about mortar-launched ones? Is that posible?
