No i think you misunderstand. If you guys are making decent mods, i would rather see you guys be able to release them to the public than be sitting on them. I don't know if there is a standard on this or not. But i would figure, if you can't get ahold of the developer with the email that was attached to their mod, then i would consider it abandonware. But that is me.
I would say give em a week to respond. I've known some people who are rather over-protective of their intellectual property.
Me? I would settle for someone making up an assault rifle. Not a machine gun; an assault rifle. I wonder why nobody's done this yet, honestly...
be a bit more specific on what you are looking for .... Someone may be able to do it
assault rifle?? hmmm well there IS a MP mod, cant remember the name atm tho, but that one has a M4 (altho its called XM177 or similar), an AK47 and theyre NOT taken from like CS, BF2 etc theyre all homemade by the maker, ive tried those weps out in my own modded stuff and its really cool :-) If i can figure out the name of the mod ill post it here
check the FMJ (Full Metal jacket) thread cuss thats the one i was referring to!! :D Lots of new weps, not only assault rifles such as ak47, m4 etc but new cool pistols, an UZI (i think, its a cool smg anyhow hehe) and my favs ie s h o t g u n! :D When i get my 7600gt back and if it works, ill deff play a lot of that mod, the maker also included a CTF gameplay (thank god, i hate dm) :-)
Actually, an idea for gibbing would to stop human monsters (including commando) from gibbing and have the normal hellspawn dissappear.
