Pedrofire21 AKA H34DCRUSHER Convertion to GTA IV

My very first mod released to the public community; Already made by my great friend Killerfist, decided to release anyway because of attachment choice and difference of models.
IMPORTANT NOTICE:
If you have a request, just post it here:

About the weapon:

The Barrett Firearms Manufacturing Barret M98 Bravo is a bolt action long-range rifle, the first and only 'till now to fire the mythical .338 Lapua Magnum, known for its superior accuracy.

This release features the following options:

- Bipod (folded) + Scope
- Bipod (folded)
- Scope
- No attachments

Naruto607 has given us a quick peek into his next release by giving me the opportunity to release a custom Weaponinfo.xml line specific for this weapon. I have edited it to match all four versions, with diferent traits affecting range and accuracy (although the last one only affects NPCs).
I made custom icons and included a IV classic style icon made by Smeagol_RP for Killerfist's Barrett:

The non-bipod weapons were released just to keep the options enabled, as they are very bad in terms of hand positioning.
For the scope I've used Morpahdron's TMR, available here:

Please bear in mind that this is my first mod. Constructive criticism is much appreciated.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:
I'd like to thank:
- Killerfist for the excellent supervision and tutorial, not mentioning all the tips he gave me during development;
- Naruto607 for the Weaponinfo.xml line;
- Smeagol_RP for the classic IV icon; Although I couldn't make contact to get permission, I've decided to get the icon in the release and credit the author;
- Ac.amir for the excellent Ghillie suit/Camo tent model, used during pic taking;

Dude, this is not bad for your first upload. Well done man. I haven't tried it in game yet, but from what I can tell, it's a 10!

^Oh stop it you! Thanks for the feedback, try it and comment on your thoughts bro.

Ok, I just checked out the version with "both attachments" and the version with "no attachments" and as you already mentioned, the one with no attachments has hand position issues, only at the forward hand guard though so it's really not too bad.

The one with "both attachments" however, IMHO is 100% perfect and is bad as hell bro!! I love it, and I will confirm..it's a 10/10! Again, nicely done! Can't wait to see some more releases from you :)

@Dr. Toker Thank you very much once again for the feedback, love this baby as well myself. I'll try to thinker with the model in Autodesk, but as you know, IV's hand positioning is sometimes the utter limitation for some releases. Meanwhile, set your bipod, adjust your scope, and lay down lead rain on those you hunt.

awesome make an elcan SD or aimpoint SD version that would be ill

@Pedrofire21, No problem bro :) Yea, sometimes the hand position just can't be helped. But, I prefer the one with both attachments anyways..I wanna see the look on the face of the helpless victims when they eat my lead lol. The look of sheer horror.

Btw, I was trying to post a reply to you on the request thread but I keep getting a "internal server error" and it's not letting me post it, so I'll post it here!

My reply:

I would love the 552 tac, the Kimber compact (Kimber compact would be best since killerfist already did the Kimber II), and the Remington 870 tac (killerfist already did the M3) and I agree, those shotties are awesome!! :D

Thanks man and keep up the great work, and definitely keep em coming!

@Pomodoro I will find a suitable attachment and later post the Mediafire link here. For some reason I couldn't upload my mod directly =/.

@Dr. Toker I'll make the 552Tac, the Kimber Compact and the Remington, no problem my friend =). Always a pleasure.

@Xboxlover For some reason the mod the mod isn't available on the website, but I got it here:

http://games.softpedia.com/get/Mods-Addons/GTA-IV-Addon-Call-of-Duty-Ghillie-Suit-Pack.shtml

Enjoy =)

@edsir98 Thank you very much my friend, it goes both ways, although I am a novice in converting =). Thanks for the help.

@Fabriciuz Thanks, enjoy :D

@Killerfist My friend and dear mentor, thank you very much for all the help and insight on this and future developments. Sure you can add me mate, go ahead. I'll make Dr. Toker's requests and then I'll start by doing older requests.

@Homyans Thank you very much dude, that means a lot :). Next release I'll use your creamsuit for the pics, love it!

Added you to the list, it'll be nice to have some more modders working requests so thanks for that.

I'm glad everything worked out for you and hope to see more mods made by you in the future. If you want to make close-up screens (from different angles) next time, you can just save a random piece of clip and use the video-editor to make screens. That's how I make mine, just fire a couple of rounds from different positions and hit F2.

@Killerfist Ah so that is how they get so good. Lol I used FRAPS 'cause my girlfriend uses it to capture vids and take screens in COD. Seriously, she plays it O_o. Once again, thank you.
