No Man's Land: China again!
« on: 10-07-2010, 17:07:44 »
China again!

Hello and welcome to another update of No man´s land. Today's update will contain many interesting things, some of them you have already suggested.
First of all, welcome our new member, Archimonday. His work is very nice, as you can see below
Mauser C96 "Broomhandle".
The Mauser C96 (Construktion 96)  is a semi-automatic pistol that was originally produced by German arms manufacturer Mauser from 1896 to 1937 Unlicensed copies of the gun were also manufactured in Spain and China in the first half of the 20th century. Approximately 1 million C96 pistols were manufactured by Mauser alone, with the number produced in Spain and China being large but unknown due to the loss, non-existence, or poor upkeep of production records from those countries.

(the normal map is still WIP)

The Mauser C96 had superior range and better penetration than most other standard pistols; the 7.63x25mm Mauser  cartridge was the highest velocity commercially manufactured pistol cartridge in existence until the advent of the .357 Magnum cartridge in 1935. Besides the standard 7.63x25mm chambering, C96 pistols were also commonly chambered for 9mm Parabellum.


CHECK this video to see it ingame: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nc-ahyknwgY

As a military sidearm, the pistols saw service in various colonial wars, as well as World War I, The Estonian War of Independence, Russian Civil War , the Spanish Civil War, the Chinese Civil War, and World War II.

In No man’s land, C96 was created by Rataconfusca and codded by Archimonday

Second „weapon“ is quite known thing, but not very often used in wargames: Whistle!
The whistle has its roots dating back to ancient China, where night watchmen would blow into the tops of acorns to alert the towns to invading Mongolians In ancient Egypt two blades of the papyrus plant along the Nile river were held together in between the palms. By blowing into the palms the papyrus leaves would make a loud vibrant sound.

(US and Brittish)

Whistles were used in various military engagements in the 20th century. They were used primarily to initiate a pre-set plan so that all parts (within earshot) would move simultaneously. Officers in the first world war would sometimes blow whistles to signal all troops along a broad stretch of trench at the same time. It signalised time to die, that is go over the top and charge the other sides trenches.

(German)

Whistle was modeled  and codded by Archimonday, skinned by Ronisayswoot.

Ha, I knew about the part of the C96! :D
Good job, lads, looks very nice so-far. Just one question: What role will the whistles play in-game? Are they simply for aestethic reasons in game or do they give some sort of "boost" to the players, like in BF1918?
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

I made a better render of the C96 and optimized the textures a bit :)


Edit:

You can see the picture in the first post.

Nice work guys...The sides of the hammer and the bolt should be left in the white on the C96.  At least that is how mine is.  Anyone know for sure?
