Agreed with boss, I didn't want to be the first to say anything. :) I think the model could possibly use some reworking, but whatever the case may be, the skull object just looks very cartoony.
* The candle part looks great!
* I think the nose hole must be bigger and/or a bit lower
* The cheek bones and jaw must be obvious and protrudent, and differentiated from one another.
* The eye sockets might be a bit more "frowny" (brow bone slants downward toward the sides of the skull)
* The teeth... well, the teeth may need to be remodeled.
* The chin must protrude further from the face, may need remodelling
* Note the dark shadow all around the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) the joint of the jaw and the main skull.

I hope this helps you.

Great but I think it's more a loker as a curled up, I don't remined me to have seen a curled up on a one shot flare pistol

Edit :
Oups I make a mistake, ... the locker is on the side like you can see here

Escorter: Yes, it's the middle one. I've put a little texturing on the grip as per oBe's request. It looks a little better now.

Fresh_meat: I'm sorry, I'm not sure what your talking about.... a curled up? Do you mean a revolving cylinder? I don’t really want to debate if the flare pistol only contains one flare or not, you never see Caleb reload the thing (as he does with the shotgun), nore does it have any sort of rotating animations. I'm indifferent either way, tho as a note the flare pistol in Blood II had a revolving cylinder, so I did put 4 holes in the cylinder as if it were a revolver.

Blood has all sorts of "not quite" real weapons if you've noticed =]P If the cult has the rescourses to have Tesla Cannon and Napalm Launcers manufactured, you'd think a revolving flare gun might be a little more "practicle" for dealing with the odd zombie that got out of control.

In Blood, the obviously single-shot flare pistol acted like a semi-automatic chain-loaded pistol. Yep, it was pretty much fake as hell, especially akimbo. I could see reloading the thing quickly with two hands to one pistol, but no way you could do it fast with two. And how about the secondary fire? Fires about 9 flares at once? And they explode on impact? I guess a revolving magazine flare pistol would be more realistic as far as firing, but who the hell makes those? Plus, the pistol would need 9 separate hammers. :twisted: That would be sick!

It could be an induced chain fire, ball and cap black powder had a nasty habit of doing that at times. There was a revolving rifle in the civil war that had a reputation of fireing all 6 cartredges, taking off the hand of anyone foolish enough to hold the barrel to steady it.

Are you talking about the pepperbox pistol? I've herd that it fired all chambers at once sometimes. A pepperbox:

It had a barrel for each chamber.
Great work on the flare pistol texture by the way.

I think it would be cool if there were a mod of Transfusion that featured the realistic versions of the Blood weapons. But this idea would be long way down the road once Transfusion is finished.
