  • M9 (.45 Semiautomatic pistol)
  • M3 (12 Gauge, pump action shotgun, with buckshot YAY)
  • M4 (5.56mm Fully automatic assault Rifle)

In addition, it provides Night Vision Goggles (for now, they just barely help to see in complete darkness).

the mod works great :-)

pros:
-do good damage
-fun
-fast shooting

cons:
-i dont know which ammo goes to which gun (maybe make the ammo name be "<gun name> ammo")
-also if you are shooting at somone but are close enough to see the selection box then they are not damaged

if you want to make it destroy the surrounding area then look at jordan4ipbanez butter mod. also have the item itself take in the surrounding area. i think that explosions shouls be configurable in case you want the damage to the player but not the damage to the land

Thanks :)

The idea is not to make a "Handgun ammo", "Rifle ammo", etc. The idea is that you can use, for example, .45 ammo on a .45 Piston or on an SMG. Ammo reusability reduces the number of items that needs to be defined, and is more "realistic". Modern FPSs use this system.
The idea of being guns is that they are used at long range. For short range, have swords handy :)
Anyway, that is a bug and should be fixed. Thanks for reporting.

Yes Idea, I like see you can, make a Minigun heres the catch, though...I like it act like a Minigun have the barrel turn when, firing.

And I will add some of my weapons on here later.

This looks like Halo.

i think that the guns should have the # in their name. like the .45 pistol and the .45 ammo

I want a sniper scope and i don't want a punch movement when firing a gun/pistol, bow or dart gun. Maybe something for the core coders to consider.

100% agree. I'm trying to come up with a feature for a pseudo sniper rifle using current engine possibilities.

i think that bullets should be able to go through water. atm they don't. when i shoot a grenade underwater it explodes on me. if you make a bow maybe only have arrows go through water.

Kaeza has always been on top of improvements and bug fixes for the Mods we use on my server. He also takes well thought out user/tester ideas under very good consideration. We have been using his IRC Mod and a Co-Op Jail mod that him had RAPHAEL built and love working with him on those and hopefully other future projects ^_^

and a couple observational notes:

Bullets stop as if hitting a solid when entering water... that's how they test rounds of ammo when a crime has been commuted.

People can only do what is available in the games API and are limited to the options that the game already has coded within the program.

Thank you DARGON for your continuous support. You and RAPHAEL have been supporting me a long way, and I really consider you excellent friends.

@jojoa1997 As for the projectiles "dying" on water, that can be easily done. Ditto for any other node. This mod is just getting started. I suggest you have more patience.

@Likwid I suggest you get more knowledge about how things work in the engine before you suggest things like these. BTW: The code can be copied and modified (provided you comply with the terms of the license), so why don't you try doing that yourself?

@all If you want to have bows & arrows, why don't you use this mod instead?

if you have any sane suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them :)

Thanks!
Nice idea! Working on the grenades and a silenced pistol :)
I'll think the tranquilizer gun will be somewhat possible. Let me look at what I can do :)

Works on anything implemented as an entity (which sadly means you can blow up your dropped items). Buttets do not collide with other bullets though.

Also, forgot to mention: anyone daring enough to edit firearmslib.lua can enable smoke traces on the rockets. This is done by uncommenting the 'if' block at the start of ent.on_step inside firearmslib.register_bullet.
Here's a video demonstrating it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZusRnxOqPY
I have disabled that feature because it sometimes leaves orphan entities (i.e. smoke does not disappear), and also because this would lag servers.

EDIT: Please excuse the poor quality of the video :P

Actually, mauvebic said he did something similar a while ago, but IDK much about that.

BTW New Updates:
- Added shoot sound for all weapons.
- Fixed a stupid bug where player entities would be removed from the world if killed by a shot.
- Reworked some of the textures to look better.
- Tweaked the range of some weapons and the default range.
- Implemented burst fire support for weapons.

I'm looking for better sound files. They can be released under any license, provided the license is considered free (i.e. it's free to use and modify the files even for commercial purposes).

The feature jojoa1997 requested (that dead entities drop items) and the stealth weapons will be added soon...ish.

The only features I can include in a sniper rifle are increased range, and very high to perfect accuracy. That will also be done soon.

i love the semi auto carbine. upon futher testing the npcs dont get any damage and they are just remove (unless the mese is destroyed also). this is the code i use to make they drop stuff when killed.

Code: Select all

    if self.object:get_hp() == 0 then
        local obj = minetest.env:add_item(self.object:getpos(), "default:mese")
    end
