Halo 3 SMG V.4
My latest and greatest evolution of Halo 3's "bullet hose". I guess you could say I'm restarting and refinishing what I already started and finished. This shares many similarities with my previous SMG, which I've long since dismantled. But this newest one will bring LOTS more detail and much better proportions than any previous versions. It was just another one of those times when I looked backed and cringed at the thought of everything I could've and should've done better. So now, I present to you best Halo gun yet! And now, my conscience is clear... ish.
About this creation












Now the stock's not covered in gazillions of ugly studs like before. It also has some nice greebley details that it lacked previously.











Notice the correct texturing on the grip.



The 4-stud width on the previous version's magazine was much too wide to be game-accurate, so I narrowed it down to 3 studs and left the underlying plates at 4 to make the slight overhang that's supposed to be there.



Notice the support rail thingy under where the magazine attaches. An important detail not seen before on any of my previous SMGs.



The red lights on the magazine's feed ramp are one of my favorite details.



Reloading in-game.



The bolt DOES snap forward when released. I just disconnected the rubber band for these pics.



I previously thought you never saw the bolt locked back in-game, but...



During the reloading animation, the bolt seems to have magically locked itself in the rearward position without ever having been touched by the player's hands. What the heck, Bungie?


Working trigger powered by a Technic spring as always. Uh, bang? Or in the case of the SMG.... bangbangbangbangbangbangbangbangbangbangbangbangbang....



Collapsible stock and folding foregrip. Pretty cool, eh?











When the player single-weilds an SMG, the stock is clearly in the fully extended position from a third-person point of view.



But from a first-person point of view, the stock is obviously at the mid position. What the hecky-heck, Bungie?!



It's a little bit easier to see during a melee attack.



When the SMG is dual-weilded, the stocks are in the fully collapsed position from a first-person point of view...



But once again, they're fully extended from a third-person point of view. What the heck-heck-heckity-heck, Bungie?!?!



So here's my answer to this problem. The stock now has three locking positions! Fully collapsed...



Mid-length...



Aaaaand fully extended.



So-so FPS attempt.



I dusted off our old friend the battle rifle for this.











The impossible dual-wield.



Triple... wield... Wait, what?



Oh, c'mon, now. That's just stupid.



Well, in all fairness, that WOULD be a pretty deadly combination.



New and improved stock I made after taking the previous photos. Better angles and proportions, and I'm also starting to add some texturing.



More updates to the stock may follow, so stay tuned!







Now, if only I had a plasma pistol to dual-wield with it...



I still need to find a clever way to add the zig-zag pattern to the magazine...







I am the shadow on the wall...



I'll be the one... TO SAVE US ALL!!!!




Another long, rambling video brought to you by yours truly.

Very cool, however, would love to have a list of what I'd need, and a video on how to do this, this is very beautiful.
