But it's still not good to make a wapon plugin

1. It would look like crap cuz AlamDV2 is not a 3D program.
2. Buy a toygun or something, it looks alot better.

Would these work? They're some gun plugins I made a while ago.
There are more guns but not shown. Sig P226, SPAS .12, AK-47, P90, USP Match, RPG7...etc.
The pics are from a lightsaber test.

It would look crappy even in a 3d program. Just buy the prop.

Yeah, buy the prop instead, you can find gun props really cheap these days.

Y'can buy toy guns that look fairly real (Take of the orange bit, too)
They cost very little
Doing it in Alam dv would be very very hard.. You would have to use loads of different plugins (Guns form diff angles etc), mask of stuff that isn't visible, match up the position etc etc

Not fun
Even make up your own "gun", outta cardboard etc if your really stuck
