  Firearms: Source - Stoner Rifle-25, M1911, and Status Updates - Mod News

Hello, and welcome to Firearms: Source's first news post of August. The first thing I would like to go over with you all are a few weapon polishings. The SR25 was originally donated to us by the World at War development team, but has been recently remade by our own developers. The Stoner Rifle, textured by DrHubbler, serves a unique role in the FA:S world. It's semi-automatic fire allows for efficient mid-range combat, but the weapon itself excels at long distances with its high power Leupold scope. It has a magazine capacity of 10 rounds, and comes in at 18 credits.

Next, we have the M1911, which has been re-textured by DrHubbler to ensure that the weapons you will be firing in FA:S consist of highest quality of work. The M1911 was brought over to Firearms: Source after the merger with Fireteam Incursion and was modeled by SiD. The M1911 is our least expensive weapon, 2 credits, but don't let the price fool you. This classic firearm has more bang for the buck than you can imagine with its .45 ACP round. Next time you have 2 extra credits and you are about to reach for the grenades, you may need to rethink your decision and grab the M1911 to help you finish the job. Now you all may be wondering, "what are these nut-jobs doing recreating weapons when we don't even have the game yet?" We assure you that all of their previous duties are already completed, so they are merely doing clean up duty. They are also busy going through our materials directory and making sure we are being as efficient as possible with our texture memory. The M1911 was previously using more space than needed, which is why it was a prime candidate for a make over, along with the fact that it's texture "needed more cowbell."

Finally, to show you the other areas where development has been taken place, you can go over to Undertone's Developer Journal and check out the latest work he has done on his maps. You can see his updates to PS_Sand, SD_Mine, and his latest TC_Greenstone. There has also been a recent update to the website. We removed the Latest Media box, because we felt it was redundant, since we have a full front page devoted to the latest media. We also removed the Latest Video, because the latest video we had was really outdated and we felt its about time we get to work on a new one. So in the meantime, I have added a Facebook script that allows users who don't have Twitter or Facebook, see the latest Twitter/Facebook messages that our developers have posted in the feed. On a final note, if you are bored, please drop by our IRC channel at #firearms-source @ irc.gamesurge.net. We will be happy to entertain you!
