I suggest talking directly to Winterslice (in the Forum or IRC channel) since he is (re-)writing most of the descriptions and sure is open for critic&suggestions. -- 18:56, 11 September 2006 (CEST)

What particular part of the forum? And what's the IRC address? KingMob 22:58, 14 September 2006 (CEST)

Very interesting choice of the 4.7mm. Is this round similar to the G-11 4.7mm Round? If so, you may want to bump up the capicity of said weapon. KingMob 19:22, 16 September 2006 (CEST)

Yes, the 4.7mm I had in mind is a souped-up G11 round, but the G11 had very long and straight magazines and a rotating breech to allow that mag configuration. The UFO:AI assault rifle has a curved box magazine (presumably spring-loaded) loading from below. It's not going to have as much capacity as the huge G11 mags. Hell, with the big block of propellant that encases the G11 round, I wonder if you could even fit 30 into a double-column magazine. It might actually be bigger than a 5.56mm in its casing. -- Winter
Well, I don't know how the logistics of the 4.7 would work with spring loaded and caseless ammunition. Is caseless something you wish to stick with? Then again, it looks like they use caseless ammunition with a more standard configuration here with the [VEC-91]. Just some thoughts. KingMob 03:37, 17 September 2006 (CEST)
I believe caseless ammo is the future. It's significantly lighter than the same round with casings, and it takes away the need to eject hot brass, therefore making the whole weapon safer and more resistant to outside elements. Today's problems with caseless are almost definitely going to be fixed by 2084. -- Winter
Hmmm, how about creating two types of magazines (with same type of picture, maybyin future versions with two different pictures) - one small (curved) for 30 or 50 rounds and one big (box or drum) for 70-100 rounds (simmiliar to mags for M16 - low and high capacity).
And idea for new weapon type - simmiliar to weapon for future warior - weapon have common barell (5,56 or 7,62?) for anti-personal shoting and integrated 40mm grenade launcher + integrated night vision.

There should be more documentation. What is the recoil, minimum strength, encumbrance of each weapon?
