This is a pack of weapons textures that I have made.I decided to make this after I found that the default textures were (I think you can all agree with me here) were pretty bad. I also decided to look on some mod sites, but none of them had the feel I wanted,
so I decided to modify the best skins I could find to look what I think is more realistic. The list is as follows:
- Abakan was darkened in some places and the metal magazine was replaced with a plastic one, as it is supposed to be.
The name of the manufacturer and model of the firearm was added right above the clip. A version without this logo is included.
-AK-74 has a plastic mag now like the real version. The furniture is still plastic, but black seeing as how the AK-74's in servie within the
army use black plastic furniture. I tried to make it look smooth and new. An Afghan version of the AK-74 is included. This model has
an old-fashioned ejection port and wooden furniture like the AK's used by troops in Afghanistan in the 80's.
AKSU given black ejection port and made to look newer and has full wood grips now.
Beretta is from beta 2215. It has been darkened to make it look more realistic.
Colt has been darkened and given black slide and lower part of the gun is used from the better 2215 version.
Desert Eagle made by Paynexkiller, unaltered seeing as how it was very well-made.
Fort has been given black slide, darkened, original default texture's text has been removed from the slide. Replaced by the actual
weapon's model name.Darkened 2215 version also included if first version does not suit you.
G-36 has been darkened.
Shotgun Shells are all-metal now, like the Soviet-produced ones that are usually available in Eastern-Bloc countries.
It used to show up as full of pellets even after firing when default. This has been removed, shells are now empty, seeing as
how you don't see the front of them when you reload. Delete this if you do not like the way it looks. I tried my best.
Grenades are from Beta 2215. They have been darkened a bit because they looked too shiny.
Groza has been darkened and given wooden top like the ones that are actually in production.
Browning Hi-Power has been darkened to make it look less shiny.
Knife has been lightened on the blade, while handle has been darkened.
L-85 was darkened. It was originally black, but a version with green grips has been added due to popular demand.Both are included.
LR-300 has been darkened to make it look "tactical" and less gray.
MP-5 by Factor-X , unaltered seeing as how it looks really good.
PB darkened, and given wooden grip.The model number has been added to the slide. A version without this marking is also included.
PM darkened to make it look more modern. The old plastic Soviet-Style handle has been added along with the "Made in Russia" on the slide
that is found on many new Makarovs issued to the Police. This Makarov is made to look like the Izh-71 currently issued to the Russian police.
A no text version is also included.
RG-6 has been unaltered.
RPG has been darkened, the gray-ish wood was made to look more like wood now on RPG-7's nowadays.
Sig-550 darkened in some places to make it look more metallic.
P220 darkened, slide from 2215 version has been added.
SPAS-12 darkened and given a Franchi logo. A version without the logo is also included.
SVD darkened and touched up in some places.
SVU darkened, given the same front grip as the SVD, but it does not look right in DX9. A different version has been included for DX-9
users. Until the SDK comes out, the model can't be altered so it looks the same as in DX8.
TOZ-34 is 2215 texture. It has also been darkend.
Upgrades have been darkened to make them look less silver-ish and out of place.
USP is 2215 texture. It has been darkened.
VSS and VAL are 2215 versions. They have been darkened and the grip had been made black because that's how they are issued now.
Walther has been darked. Text has been added to the slide along with the model number like the 2215 texture. A non-text version is included.
Winchester has been darkened, along with some parts being switched with parts from the one in the Realistic Weapons pack made by YourMessageHere.
The Winchester logo has been added. A version without this is included.
Extract to your STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl folder. Make sure folder is named "gamedata". If you already have a gamedata folder, cut and
past the wpn folder into your textures folder inside gamedata. If you already have a wpn folder in textures, copy and paste the textures you
want to use into that folder.
I don't have any problems with people modifying these textures as long as the authors of the originals and I are given credit, and if no
money is made. Thank you very mich and enjoy. :)
Notes: GSC have allowed the use of 2215 textures, so it's legal.
Any problems or mistakes, contact me at email@example.com

The rest of the screens can be found here. I'm not done with all of them, still busy tweaking. Any criticisms, let me know and I'll try to fix it.
Hope you like these. :)
