Hey, I am beginning modding and have tons of ideas but don't have a clue how to make them work. Here are a couple of my ideas:

  • American Scout - M1 Garand with the scope
  • American Engineer - M1 Carbine
  • British Medics - Sten Gun
  • All germans should have a P-08 Luger

I don't have a clue on how i would do with but if any of u can, good luck!

um i really dont know if your realized this but, the m1 garand is not a sniper rifle. it is a semi auto matic rifle that fires as close as it got to a automatic. so really if you wanna change the sniper rifle, dont, because the springlfield 04 is what they had, give the m1 garand to the engy.

one suggestion that i have to make is that (if this is at all possible) to let the assault guy take either the MG, SMG, or the rifle it would make it more of a versitile class since whichever gun they have would give them more ammo. the only limitation would be that the allies still could only take allied weapons and the axis could only take axis. I think that would be really alot more realistic. :rock:

other than that, every other suggestion u make sounds correct.

After you make the new mesh for the gun you have to edit the objects.con files for each of the types of classes. And, the Germans have not only the normal packs but the desert packs as well so that's twice the editing.

Actually, you're wrong. The M1 Garand could be used as a sniper rifle by adding a scope, though the Springfield was used much more.

ok, u can put i scope on almost any gun and sight it in and call it a sniper rifle, but the m1 garand wasnt as powerful as the springfield, meaning that the bullet travel time is not as fast and it drops alot quicker. so really, i dont think the m1 garand was ever used as a sniper rifle. what movie or game or history channel program have u ever seen that has the m1 garand as a sniper?

I never said that I had seen it on a movie or history channel, and I never said that it was widely used as it wasnt. All I was saying was that it was >possible< to use an M1 Garand as a sniper rifle.

Anyways, I really think the M1 Garand should be on the allies, with the Gewehr 43 on the axis.

I agree, that the m1 garand should be on allies, but keep it more real by keepin the springfield as the sniper, give the m1 to the engy or someting, oh well, i wish in the next patch the sniper gets more ammo, 15 bullets is just not enough!
