[SUGGESTION] Real Weapons

#1
There are some weapons in Xonotic that exist in the real world, yet they are given some outlandish shapes to make them look more "modern". Examples: Shotgun, rocket launcher, granade launcher, rocket launcher.

Should they reflect a more real shape?. I think they look silly now, because they seem to hide their function for the sake of a futuristic design. Think of a doble barreled shotgun, all in great PVD coated black. Isn't that sexier/more interesting than the current alternative?.

Futuristic designs should be for futuristic weapons. Plasma guns or lasers. BTW, the laser model sucks.

I demand real weapons. These imaginery weapons and complex weapons (those with both real and imaginery components) are too difficult to use.

And does he mean PVC coated guns? What kind of weird fetish is that?!?

sauerbraten has a quad-barrel, so we still aren't as good a game as them.

Maybe we can get samual to add a 7 barrel shotgun. The barrels could be lined end-to-end instead of side-by-side :3

Yeah, I too think he should make a macro-based N-barreled shotgun system.

Maybe a shotgun that starts with one, but gets extra barrel for every frag, so it snowballs, but loses all barrels upon death.

a 4 barrel is just 2 2 barrels put together ...

still doens't beat the awesomeness of an odd numbered shotgun that is > 1 ...

Hey, good point. I guess it was a mistake to speak my mind. Maybe I should develop my own game/aesthetic.

I'm sorry if that was a bit abrasive.
Xonotic simply isn't supposed to be realistic.

If you're looking for an open-source FPS that tries to emulate reality true combat: elite is a good option.
Urban terror brings modern weapons to arena shooters if you like the movement of games like xonontic and quake.

Yes, you have a good argument there. Xonotic doesn't aim for realism, the problem is I just don't like the aesthetics very much either.

Urban Terror I just find awful, even if it uses realistic weapons. You can't please everyone I guess.

Try Arma, I've heard it's one of the few really realistic shooters, it only works on Win32 though iirc...

Woah, dont worry about the barrels im taking care of em.
New shotty in progress with a cool 10 barrel system, 5 at front and when shot they go to the back layer of barrels and the back layer goes to the front.

It will be released about times of 2.0 if lucky Big Grin

Well, it wouldn't hurt to make the shotgun feel more like iron. The current sound and visual combo is very plastic at the moment.

And shotgun also sounds very loud and strong when it fires ...

... like shit?

I think that plstic souds are ok, just think about it: its future!

A note to droid and anybody else who is going to make a new shotty model. The shotgun you are making should be strong and solid, so you can slap'n'smack things with it. it shouldnt be delicate.

It's kinda weird to hear those plastic shells drop when you're in mid air though.
