Ugh... those white dots on the mags look.... weird, to say the least. :/

With some modification, those magazines could be used to represent 7 round PPK magazines. Just need to shorten them a bit, perhaps widen them to give the impression of being shorter, and paste the PPK magazine extension on the bottom.

As far as the dots being too light, those could be darkened a bit, but I see what you're trying to do by using the same colour scheme as the bullet casings. Overall I prefer these over some other options I was considering.

With your permission, MissingName, I'd like to include your .32 ACP collection in UC-1.13 v3, though with some minor edits, and the "kit bashed" 7round PPK magazines I discussed above. Also will be adding a +P variant in the same style as UC-1.13 (basically "+P" drawn with pixels). Five guns (Four by Missing Name, plus the early model Skorpion) and four sizes of magazines (7, 8, 20, and the ammo boxes) is more than enough to justify adding .32 ACP. Now to compose some fluffy text for in-game and BR descriptions.

Go ahead, use them! That's why I've been making these sprites.

Welrod:
"It might seem like a sinister nightstick from hell, but this bolt-action pistol is just as quiet as its melee look-alike."

Walther PP:
"A small .32 caliber pistol, easily concealed. Excellent for officers or secret agents wishing to dispose of said officers."

Walther PPK:
"A more compact version of the already small Walther PP. With this, you truly have a License to Kill."

M1910:
Wait, nothing's coming to mind here. Something about Franz Ferdinand?

I'll probably be noting the M1910's longevity along with its historical significance.

The current goal is to work in the phrase somewhere, "delivery like a brick though a plate glass window."

Speaking of Bond cliches, before I reorder the items again, the Gyrojet weapons will be added. They look great as they are, and only one magazine item to add. Also will be good to get some more use out of the rocket rifle trail effect in-game.

"delivery like a brick though a plate glass window"

Aw, I forgot about that one! I'm still not sure which model Bond used. Sometimes it seems like he had a .32, others a .380. It's a mystery.

I think the Gyrojet is filled with loose rounds. Not sure about that.

And another sound pack for y'all. Haven't uploaded one of those in a while. There's a sound added for the Walther firing. Not sure what a Gyrojet would sound like, though...

The Walther P1, the direct successor to the P38. I'd rather have one of these than a Luger any day.

This is what I replaced the M1928 with in my game. I just don't like it - the 28A1 seems classier.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm out of ideas for now...

Still open for suggestions? I was looking for a new line-up for the Arulcan army in my WWII mod:

Rifles

Modelo 1891 and Modelo 1891 Carbine
Argentinian bolt-action rifles chambered in 7.65x53 (so called "Argentinian Mauser").
Toggle Spoiler
The 7.65x53 cartridge would be highly exotical for mercs armed with European and US weapons, but was very common in Latin America

Modelo 1909 Carbine
Argentinian bolt-action rifle chambered in 7.65x53

These three should be the standard service rifles of a pre-1945 Arulcan army

Modelo 1909
Brazilian bolt-action rifle chambered in 7.92x57 Mauser.
Possibly used as sniper rifle by the Arulcan army.

Arisaka Type 38
Japanese bolt-action rifle chambered in 7.92x57 Mauser for export.

The default calibre of the Type 38 is 6.5x50, but Japan was used to export them to South America re-chambered in Mauser prior to WWII.

Mondragon
Mexican semi-automatic rifle in 7.92x57 Mauser.

The Mondragon was the first semi-automatic rifle that went into production and saw combat service: a couple of Swiss made Mondragons were used by the Imperial air force in the early years of WWI for plane-to-plane shooting. This weapon was notoriously unreliable and difficult to repair. There also was a LMG and a bolt-action variant.


LMGs
FN D
Belgian BAR chambered in both 7.65x53 and 7.92x57.


Madsen
Danish LMG chambered in 7.92x57.

Madsens were in use by most Latin American armies for most of the 20th Century. Post-war models were chambered in .30-06 and 7.62NATO.

Mendoza M1934
Mexican made LMG chambered in 7.92x57. Post-war models were chambered in .30-06.


SIG KE-7
Swiss made LMG in 7.92x57.

This one was exported in large numbers to South America.

MG 08/15
German made water-cooled LMG in 7.92x57.

Large numbers of this LMGs were captured by the Allies after WWI and later appeared all over the world. A rather primitve auto-fire only LMG.

SMGs

ZK-383
Czech Export SMG in 9x19. Very common in South America


Steyr MP-34
Swiss-Austrian SMG in 9x19. Very common around the globe in its time.


Halcon M/943
Ugly looking Argentinian SMG in .45 ACP




Pistols
Ballester-Molina
An Argentinian Colt clone in .45 ACP


Obregon
Another Colt clone, this time from Mexico.


Star mod B
Spanish 9x19 pistol. Technically a colt clone too.

I've already got a Type 38 rifle and an MP-28 (Similar to the MP-34). The FN D I will sprite for sure, as well as the 7.65 rifles, Madsen LMG, Halcon and Ballester-Molina.

Don't know about the rest. The MG-08 seems straight out, as it weighs 27 kg alone, not to mention the water, ammo and tripod. (69kg in all.)

@Sampzon: do you have the XML editor?

The one for JA would be the 08/15 (or technically rather the air-cooled 08/18). It's the LMG version of the Maxim 08 and weights some 14,5 kgs, about the same as the M1919.

Length: ca. 1,45 meters
Barrel: ca. 0,72 meters
rate of fire: 450 shots/min

would make something around
range: 71*
Damage: 40*
Ready-AP: 27
Fed: 200er or 250er belt
auto-fire only

-------
* I am planning to slightly re-stat rifle-cartridges. Compared to 7.62x54R, what I used as "standard", .30-06 is a bit overpowered and 7.92 a bit underpowered ATM.

A magnum holster could be useful for UC-1.13; unlike stock v1.13, I'm already set-up for two sizes of revolvers. This was done for LBE reasons, I didn't want revolvers fitting into the pistol holsters (since there was a Revolver LBE added that didn't really do much different), and later found that I didn't want large frame revolvers fitting into the small pocket necessitating the second size of revolver. Right now both sizes of Revolver make use of the Revolver holster, but it would make sense to have a holster specifically for larger revolvers.

Now if only ChrisL would revisit his comments about expanding the number of possible sizes, 35 is not enough.

The Reising .45 ACP submachineguns got a poor track record in WWII, but they weren't really made for military use. The semi-auto carbine version remained in effective urban police usage for quite some time after the war.

For the M1919A6. In my game, there are 5 .30-'06 weapons so far. (M1903A3, M1, M1919A6, M1918, Winchester 70).

Next thing I'm planning is the Puma 1892 carbine in .357 Magnum.
