It's a decently executed idea. You have done a great job not darkening all textures directly, but maintaining parts such as scope, wood, the red/green lines on grenades, the clips on SG552/AUG, and the firing mode indicators of the MP5. However there is still room for improvement.
Overall the weapons feel way too dark. On areas with shadows, all I see is a lump of coal. They could be lightened slightly to appear better in darker areas.
There is a lack of consistency between the dark shade across various weapons. Certain weapons are darker than the others (eg. FAMAS, Glock), whereas others are a touch lighter (Deagle, C4). Also the darker versions retain the original color tones - i.e. some weapons feel "blue-ish"/"green-ish"/"red-ish" depending on the original texture. Desaturating all the weapons first before editing them would provide more consistency.
You haven't skinned the shield models at all. It creates an inconsistency in-game - the shield models retain the vanilla CS look and when the shield is dropped, they suddenly revert back to the dark-skinned versions. It's easy to add them though, all we need to do is change all the pistol textures via a model viewer. But the shield model itself has not been changed.
For Player/World models, you can use Pralinen's Hi-Poly pack which are actually just conversions of the current View models. They look great in-game and still retain the vanilla CS feel. We don't need to create any extra textures as well since anything that can be applied to View models can simply be copied over to the Player/World models.
As extras, you can provide matching buy menu images as well as alternate red/blue/yellow and more color versions for the green dots and scopes.
4MB sounds too big for this pack. For the creation of the download RAR, what level of compression was used? I tried compressing the files using 7-Zip set for maximum compression and was able to get the file size down to 1.5MB.
this is a simple but beautiful skin pack i just wish you didn't change the deagle color because i think white is better( yes i know that in this pack all the Weapons are suppose to be black but i think a white deagle is more beautiful)
All my designs are made by me, I respect other creators and wouldn't steal in any case. As I have mentioned before, I try to do original designs that are different than others.
I am 25 years old. I've played Counter-Strike between 2008-2012 after then I left, I started working on maps and this skin in 2010. In the COVID-19 quarantine, I started playing again and finished the projects that I left undone.
If someone tries to tell me that I stole their projects, just respect my works.
