This mod turns the Assault Rifle into an Assault Rifle themed at myself(doompig444). It is much darker, and has my logo imprinted on it. However, the true secret isn't on that part; this Assault Rifle has 3 innovative designs implanted upon it. All 3 of these designs were thought up by me, and me alone. -Arrow compass -Handwritten Ammo Numbers -Display plate saying "AMMO" rather than the "x *bullet* thingy" This skin is supposed to look quite shabby, as I like things shabby. E.g. the handwritten numbers on the ammo counter.
Jackle tells me he's never seen the 3 innovative designs listed above used on any other mod/skin, so I'll assume that I am the first to do it. If that's true, then please credit me if you wish to copy any of the designs above. Jackle already has my permission.
The mod also includes Halo 3 sounds and multipurpose maps by PM7. There is also anims, by FlamingRain, and a model by TAZZ. Plus a custom reticle by me. Supposedly, it's because this is an MA5C assault rifle customized by me so that my logo and stuff is on it. In reality, I just thought the skins looked better with the Halo 3 AR model and anims.
This is a beta, and future updates may have Battle-Scarring and more details.
MA5C-DP Variant Assault Rifle beta 0.3 ------------------------------------------ by doompig444 This skin is the best skin I have ever made. It is a skin for the assault rifle that is customized for me. I could make it uncustomized for me, but nah... Supposedly, I repainted an MA5C Assault Rifle so it is themed at me. In reality, I used gimp to edit a normal MA5B skin so it's themed at me. The difference there is scarce, but there is a difference. This skin is awesome merely because I have(I believe) pioneered many never-before-seen features upon it. Here they are: Compass - The compass is now modified by me so that, rather than a strange looking pointer telling you where to go, it's a standard arrow. Like this -->, except I drew it. I believe (and Jackle does too) that I am the first to have changed it into an arrow, though some of the concepts were based off of the "NE" "N" "NW" thing used in Pepsi's FTW. Numbers - Jackle tells me he has never seen anything like ithis before. I erased Bungie's mechanical-looking LCD numbers and drew my own in gimp. Hand-drawn by me with a mouse, these numbers look shabby and crooked. Display Plate - I'm not sure whether anyone else has done this before, but it's still awesome nevertheless. Remember that thing on the ammo counter, which is an "x <=" thingy, directly under the amount of ammo you have, which is basically same you have 60 x Bullets? Well, I changed that, so now it just says AMMO(refer to the screenies if you still don't know what I mean). The three awesome advances in Assault Rifle skinning listed above are solely my work, not copied off anyone, unless you count that small bit of inspiration to change the plate from Pepsi. The assault rifle is also shinier(thanks to Jackle for telling me about that pistol cubemap thing). The mod includes a diffuse gunmetal skin to make the rifle shiny, a full set of compass and number skins, the skin itself, the halo 3 assault rifle multipurpose map by pm7, h3 assault rifle sounds, a cool reticle by me, and h3 assault rifle anims.
