What are opinions of possibly adding in a new class "Sniper" The Allies could use the SP "Snooper Rifle" and if possible Sonuk could make an Axis counterpart. I have a pk3 file that would eliminate the green night vision from the scope,which will be added to the mod

Sniper class = Rifle Colt/Luger X_Grenades {to be determined}

I was thinking along the lines of the SP Mauser. The sniper would have a scoped rifle, ordinary soldiers dont.

We wouldn't have to add an Axis weapon, and I could make My Garand in the same way as the Mauser (separate scope).

There's also the G43, which is very much like the M1 carbine which the Snooper rifle is.

BTW, my research indicates that the M1 carbine would be virtually useless as a sniper weapon. It should be a proper Garand. The directory structure for the weapons incorrectly calls it a Garand.

Also, the "night-vision green" is scripted into code.. To remove it, you'd have to alter the weapon reticle, in CG_DrawWeapReticle.. Included below is what I'm talking about: Defined Variable at top: vec4_t snoopercolor = {0.7, .8, 0.7, 0}; // greenish Now draw the scope stuff //----(SA) added // DM didn't like how bright it gets snooperBrightness = Com_Clamp(0.0f, 1.0f, cg_reticleBrightness.value); snoopercolor[0]*=snooperBrightness; snoopercolor[1]*=snooperBrightness; snoopercolor[2]*=snooperBrightness; trap_R_SetColor( snoopercolor );//you green color getting added //----(SA) end

if(cgs.media.snooperShaderSimple) CG_DrawPic( 80, 0, 480, 480, cgs.media.snooperShaderSimple );//shader to supply end scope effect But you can just take out the code from "//----(SA) Added" to "//----(SA) end" Hope that helps..

A sniper class would be great.

The sniper would have a scoped rifle, ordinary soldiers dont.

^ Thats a good idea.

I really dislike the snooper model though, and the whole silenced garand thing. Sonuk, If we manage to get your Garand model in game, would you like to add your own scope to it? We could use it for allies instead of the snooper... I'm pretty sure there were a few scoped Garands in WWII...

That's what I thought you had planned. The snooper is a "converted" M1 carbine - not what you'd expect to be used for sniping.

There are a lot of references to sniper Garands. Google for GARAND M1C or Garand M1D.
