An interesting concept called “Receiver” by Wolfire games:
A video showing the updates and guns that were added:
Made in only 7 days as a part of an FPS game programming challenge. Shoot drones, and turrets while manipulating your 1911, Glock, or revolver realistically using the mouse and a lot of keys. Nice touch that they made the Glock with an auto add-on. Available over at Wolfire Games at an introductory price of only $5.
The fact it’s an FPS without the P (person) is interesting until you realize that there’s basically just an “invisible” person. Decent looking game for $5 nevertheless. I like the fact that it’s open source too because if it catches on there are a lot of people that will do some really awesome stuff for it.
As soon as I saw the title of the post I knew it was going to be about carving, and I already had some jokes ready like “CONFIRMED: Hickok45 is old” … yea it was a work in progress. I started the video up though and HOLY SHIT. Turns out he didn’t make them, but regardless they are amazing.
The company that makes them is called Wood Caliber, and they are based out of Davison, MI. The M1911A1 on their website is currently starting at $1800… keep in mind it’s basically a piece of artwork. There is no question those things would take a long time to build, by hand or by machine.
You know I have to ask… When is the Deagle brand Deagle and Glock brand Glock coming out in wood? Well there actually already is a wood Glock which I posted about, but it’s not as impressive… I also posted a wood FN SCAR and a Canadian C7 (M16 Equivalent) Rifle which are quite impressive.
Since all of my previous shirts only had front prints, I had a great idea for a back print so I decided to throw one on the shirt you see the AR-15 magazine on. The back of it is pictured left… football number style.
The California t-shirt, and the keep calm ones are all filled up now too… so have at them.
Confusing, but likely worth one minute of your time:
1911 fanboy panties are going to get knotted up that some of the textures used have rust in them! LOL. Accurate, from my experience not cleaning my Springfield Loaded when I owned it. Guess how much pitting and rust my Glocks have? (Hope you’ve been practicing your *gasp* face) No rust or pitting at all.
There appears to be a few inconsistencies, some of which I argued with a friend on… 0:21 seconds for instance looks too deep to be a crimp… he says not. Whateves… the video is cool anyway, I just hope there’s a less artsy version released.
Thoughts? Requests for a 3D look inside a Deagle brand Deagle?
Even though the title of this work was “Candy Colts” I was bracing for Deagles and Glocks to be in mix. Looks like the artist either got lucky, or is a gun enthusiast because he kept it strictly 1911s and what looks like Colt single action revolver.
