Yeah I just realised the Centurion textures in the pack are indeed quite dark.It seems that in the original Singularity game the gun was incredibly shiny, so it was just the light being reflected off it that made it more silverish.
Anyway, I can always worry about that sort of stuff later. Would probably take loads of work messing with phong effects to make it that shiny without looking plastic… I might just end up brightening some parts of the texture 20% or something.
The main thing is the model, the distinctive combination of modern parts and classic revolver parts and the mysterious sci-fi tube on the side. I love that design.
Aaah, the shells in the chamber, yeah I see. I’ve done some VTF editing before, and I’m sure I could replace the shell texture part with black circles, but I’m not sure that would have the desired effect!
When you are eventually at the point of release, it would be great if you made two versions, one with the model named Centurion (for use in gmod etc) and one with the model named the same as the standard 357 magnum so I can use it as a straight replacement when playing ordinary HL2 and mods and stuff.
