      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

I believe that if you will go to "alta vista"
and there you will seek for "guns history"
you''l find your request....

There are fanpages for almost every gun in the whole freaking world. Usually just type the gun type to Altavista.com or in googles and you''ll find the page, or at least manufacturer''s page. I personally like H&K G11,
Spas-12, AK-74, and M203 Carbine with underslung grenade launcher/Master Key. Spas-12 is good gun for hunting because you can drop whole duck pack/swarm at time without reloading.

At last a question i can answer.
Though i don''t suppose you can read Hungarian, this site contains a lot of VERY good pics, and background about a
wide array of weapon types. (my favourite is the newest H&K
development, the G36)So, here you are:

www.nitor.hu/usr/tomslayer.hu

Perhaps you can translate it somehow...

Why don´t you check out Charlton Hestons homepage, or search for something like NRA4Ever?

Besides there are a lot of Gun mags to be had (those paper thingies, remeber?)


My personal favourite is of course the Steyr AUG thingy (i guess). "Another fine quality product made in Austria"
(That´s also what it says on the bottom of our ant-personnell mines)

You name it, they probably have a pic.

http://www.specialoperations.com has links to more information than you could gun down with an M249. While there make sure you check out the article on my personal favorite, the M4 carbine- http://www.specialoperations.com/Weapons/Features/Default.html

Did you ever consider that that is a bit sick?
I'm not against hunting or anything, but saying something is good because it can destroy a lot of things quickly, does that sound, strange?

I think he was trying to make the thing about the ducks a little funny. At least I thought it was funny.

I thought it was funny too.... But I would think that you would need a bigger round (say a .50 cal.) so that even if you miss the little puuckies whould get killed from the shock!

Furby, when people go hunt, do they just shoot one duck and call it a day? No, you kill a whole flock if you can and fill the back of your pickup with their carcases.

Plus you need to shoot a couple extra to give the dogs for being such good doggies!

E:cb woof!

if you hit a duck with a .50 cal there will be no duck. literally. there''ll be little bits-o-duck flying in every which direction, but i doubt you could put them back together to recreate the original.

Hunters suck....Unless they hunt hunters......

You know why ? Because I´m mad !!

It also releases nice sound when every single fowling-piece from 12. Gauge hits to duck from short range. I can''t even descibe it, it''s just like SPLURTS or SQUEEEK.

Don''t take me serious. I haven''t ever dropped wild duck pack.
