Beretta 92FS - 9x19mm Luger
Beretta Px4 Storm - .40 S&W

S&W 686 - .357 Magnum
 
Ruger 10/22 - .22 LR
Winchester 94 - .30-30 Win
Colt AR15-A3 - .223 Rem
Remington 700 SPS - .308 Win
SKS-45 - 7.62x39mm M43
 
Mossberg 500AT - .12 ga
Sawed-off Mossberg 500AT - .12 ga
 
HK MP5A3 - 9x19mm Luger
 
All weapons/ammunition have custom sound effects.  All ammo boxing/unboxing recipes are implemented.  Certain weapons can only be found in police departments and/or gun stores.
 
Melee weapons, misc. items and containers added:
 
Metal Baseball Bat
Tactical Axe
Tactical Machete
Combat Knife
Entrenching Tool

this sounds great, i was missing having an aluminum baseball bat.

 

but a few items i am unsure of, like what is the difference between the fire axe and a tactical axe?

or the ALICE packs.

 

i like the selection of guns, that HK MP5A3 - 9x19mm Luger could be quite the fun horde clearing item

The tactical axe is based on the United Cutlery M48 Apocalypse which is actually a tomahawk.  I've left it as a two handed weapon though for gameplay purposes.  As far as the ALICE packs, the medium, IRL, is 20x19x11 and the large is 22x20x19.  They both carry more than any of the default bags.

 

The H&K MP5 is set up as a 3 round burst gun so it does tend to get the job done.  You will be very lucky to find one in a police station though and it will burn through your 9mm ammo pretty quickly.

This looks awesome! Would it be fine to download now or should I wait for the ammo fix?

 

The ammo fix is in.  Build 14 is posted and you can go ahead and download it if you like.  The next build will just be distribution tweaks so it won't affect any saves that you have with the newest build.

An excellent mod. I'm not familiar with PZ modding, though, I was curious: is it possible for you to create new world models for the weapons? As they stand they are fine -- though seeing my character hold the weapon itself rather than a normal pistol or shotgun would be neat (unless of course they're actually there and I'm just having issues on my end).

Also -- not sure if it's a bug, but when aiming with a rifle, it seems to disappear from my character's hands visually.

Unfortunately, at this time, you cannot edit the sprites that the character holds.  Perhaps in time they will open them up to modders.  As far as the disappearing long gun, that is a known bug that they will fix.  I'm glad you like the mod so far.  Next update will be a big one.  Got a little idea that I have started to implement and should be finished with it soon...

Nice addition ! I'm usually not a fan of weapons in survival games but it adds variety without balance issues (such as not enough noise, although I didn't get all of them yet).

With luck there won't be reloading bugs with the next build and it will be perfect !

Holy balls, nice job. Did you do the pixel art?

 

Funny you should ask.  The only reason I included the weapons that I did was because I have access to take photos of them.  Either owned by myself, a friend or the local police department (where I am a former employee).  I made the art in the sense that I took the photo and manipulated it.  I have access to several other firearms as well (friend owns a local pawn shop) so if I ever 'need' to add another it should not be a problem.

Just a quick question, I'm not sure it's related to your mod but I gain no xp when reloading, do you ? I tried most weapons (still missing the shotgun and the SMG).

You're right, after a more thorough search it's a bug with all non shotgun reloading weapons. If you "expulse and reload" by clip, you don't gain any xp, but if you reload bullet by bullet, you do.

I'm going to do that since you'd have to reload the clip bullet by bullet if normal or hardcore reloading setting was working.

Ok major update.  I've tweaked/added the following:

 

1. I've readjusted the ammo weights once again.  They are now correct the way that I want them.  All boxes of ammo now weigh 1 and individual rounds weight have been adjusted accordingly.

 

2. I've adjusted weapon distributions.  Now, ANY weapon can be found on killed zombies.  This is to simulate SWAT members, soldiers, patrol officers, etc. having turned with their weapons.  Chances are low for the higher end weapons.

 

3. Added gun cleaning kit.  Use it on degraded weapons to 'fix' approx. 10% of weapon degradation.

 

4. Adjusted parts kit creation times.  Now 10x longer to simulate disassembling the firearm.

 

5. Major change.  ALICE packs are now a modular system.  First you must find an ALICE frame and mount it to the pack.  You will then be able to mount any of three different add-on pouches (Top, Long, Short).  All attachments add capacity and weight reduction to the system.  This is still considered WIP so at the moment the pack must be empty when adding frame and pouches and you cannot remove the attachments.

is there a way to box up lose rounds? running V1.4 right now, and carrying 160 .22 rounds which obviously takes a lot of space.

 

Yes, just move at least 100 of them to your main inventory, right-click and choose 'Put in a box'.  All other pistol rounds are boxed at 50 rounds and rifle ammo at 25 rounds.
