Since the MP7 is still WIP, I also thought of making a similar skin but for the pistol and instead of updating my old beta pistol, I redid it.

Features:
- Beta Styled Skin
- Illumination (Even on the world model)
- Double resolution texture sheets
- Sounds
- Shell eject fix (Czechdeath)
- Improved the grip on the world texture by using the view grip

To do:
- Better screenshots (Tomorrow or after this weekend due to stuff)
- Orange tritium version (My gut keeps telling me it might look good)
- Edit world texture so that the NPC holding the pistol can see the tritium (yeah idk why Valve didn't make it so that they too can see their tritium instead of just us but oh well)
- World texture normal (Either figure out how to make normals from scratch or get someone to make it for me)

    You should never generate normals from the diffuse, this looks like a rock, not a pistol.

    Just use a flat 256x normal for models that doesn't have baked normals instead.

    Very interesting, but I always found the Default Pistol to look better than the Beta one. Not everything in the Beta is better than the final game.

    Good skin though

Notes
I wasn't happy with the very few changes made to the old skin so I took the higher res skin from the leak and edited it to be styled like the beta textures. Only took me a day to make.
