Having X in the name with a bunch of letters and numbers isn't as cool as you might think it is.  Come up with something that is original, appropriate, and not corny.

Sniper Rifle - too generic

XSF 90b AR - too obscure

Pulse Ion Cannon - too cheezy

Think of guns from games in the past:  Needler, Gravity Gun, Lancer, Brute Shot, SCAR, Flak Cannon etc.  Those were pretty memorable names that walked the line between boring and ridiculous.

If you're going for pseudo realism with the names, consider this formula:

[Manufacturer name] [Capital letter (M or G is common, or maybe 2 letters like AK)+number] [revision number (a4 or b2)] [nickname that fits the weapon/description of weapon]

Example: Bruschev A104c Antimatter Rifle

^Bad example, but if your name sounds worse than that, don't use it.

Thanks papasurf.

About the weapons: i ever do weapons a little bit obscure but i'll try...
And i'm goign to change the name of the weapons using that formula.

I really love that weapon henito. If we follow the Espadon's drawing, the names should be: Aliens: Wraiths; Humans: TEC Marines (Terran Exloration Corps) I like the names and the sketches.... the gosteks are done, well we need to do Wraith + Invis
EDIT: ah also Iznagk ... skinny aliens and they don't floar. They have Bio Weapons

That one in the lower, right corner looking like battle android? Graycale or concrete color theme?

Iznagk was originally supposed to be a kiwi-greenish color with yellow highlights. Think avocado. ;)

Well personally I think Henito's deviated pretty far from what the Izagk weaponry was originally envisioned as -- it was supposed to be organic looking, etc. Of course, all intellectual property is now yours and you can change it as you see fit.

They aren't Iznagk weapons! Only author's concept. I didn't wanted to do any organic stuff related to Iznagk this time, so this is your overinterpretation.

Very nice composition and weapons choice (color theme mostly like BMG related to LM89 A2, P56 Punisher work perfectly with lower weapon, HMG etc), also GJ with weapon-gfx, killberserk seem not working.

I can betatest, but after download not faster than in saturday.

Ok, don't worry.

Thanks, i need to fix some gfx. But the problem is the ini, because, if we add config we can't add the ini (or at least in 1.4)

Thougs:

- most weapons have yellow shells, even energy/plasma weapons
- eagles have wrong images when dropped
- sniper rifle has too bright clip, in game looks like white
- knife - white tail?
- chainsaw - no sound
- maybe law is too bright

Eww maybe something more, but I cant think properly now:P

Secondary Pistol: Weak "waterish" sound.

#2 The fire rate is too fast.
#5 It is way too overpowered

Overall the weapons seemed to unbalanced as some shot fast while the other like #7 had explosive shells and you could shoot 3 of them pretty fast.

But you had some good sounds for the #6, #8, LAW and some other guns.

OBEY!!!

Ok, i'll change that ussocom sound.
The slot 2 rate of fire is 1, so i could change it to arround 3 or just put a lower damage
The slot 5 should be an auto shotgun, i like and is low distance and fast, i will put a lower damage also

So you htink that slot 7 should shot faster... uhmm ok i'll try that.
On next verion (for beta tester) i will do that the slot 3 shots more slower and add blink to slot 9

Oh, that "white" pixels at handle of knife.
Btw, too big recoil for BMG, just make a little smaller.

Also try make better clips, magazines at every weapons, when I first time saw clip on 2 - omfg, what is this blackie? :P Plasma guns are mostly powered on energy cells like in Doom, so where you see already case for and exactly this energy cell? This rule apply to all weapons, not only mine, try to not add new elements, use part/s from original design for better visible effect
