The aspirating ass-pirate. I enjoy making simple mods to S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-series games, studying Soviet/Russian military history, and shooting guns. Feel free to talk to me on Steam (Mental Tormentor), or fuck with me in any way you like.

This is excellent! I'm loving all the recent updates, and it looks like you're using Heffy's AKS-74U model, which is awesome!

One thing that I noticed in the G3 video from a while back, the cocking handle in the animation never rotates when pulled back like it should like in this video (1:13 or so): It's a very minor thing, however.

Good luck continuing the mod, we're all patiently looking forward!

Very cool! To answer questions:

1) If SWTC skyboxes are easily interchangeable, include LA.
2) Optional, people may want different texture layouts (green, autumn, etc).

I'm sure I've seen that suppressor on a model for CS:S, I couldn't tell you which because I haven't played in so long. Perhaps try looking through Gamebanana or something, see if anything usable pops up.

Is the Absolute Nature 3.01 included with this mod different from the standard or can I use one I've downloaded previously? The zip file for it was corrupt in my download.

Cool stuff! I'd be interested to see the animations, with good animations and a proper, military-style texture job this could be a great replacement for the vanilla model.

I just wish someone would make an SG 540 variant.

I believe this weight is taking into account the weight of an unloaded steel magazine as well. Same thing with the other AK variants: actual weight of an AK-74 is 3.07 kg, but with a polymer/bakelite magazine (0.23 kg) it is 3.3.

Great stuff, I especially like that you finally used Heffy's AK-74 and AKS-74 models. Only gripe is the AKMSU's anims and the AKS-74N model, which could in my opinion be better represented with a simple retexture of Heffy's AKS-74 for plum or polyamide handguards. Actually I think tsf from Road to Limansk is using a plum version, you might ask him.

2.5 beta with PR looks interesting! Might it be possible to merge with the 1.14.8 version of PR (it has increased spawns all around, new mutants, and many other interesting fixes on top of 1.01b).

It seems a lot more populated than 1.01b, but also doesn't seem to hog memory quite as much with MSO.

Awesome to see that you're still working on this mod, good luck!

If you're working on F:NV modding as you said, perhaps Heffy's AK and AR pack can be ported to CoP in its entirety? I really love his models, and mixing them with Millenia's AKS-74U or Mr. Rifleman's models doesn't seem right. He has just about everything, including "customized" AKs and ARs.

It seems like there's a bandwagon for the color tape method, so I'll jump on. Just kidding, I do think the idea is great, very intuitive and simple. Perhaps you could add the little "AP" icon to the taped magazine icon so that newbies know what the tape means.

For color coding, you may not need to use different colors of tape. This example I'm thinking of would only work if you have three types of ammo, but:

1. No tape = standard ammo (7N6 5.45)
2. One stripe of tape = AP ammo (7N6M or 7N10)
3. Two stripes = HP ammo

I'm loving that you guys are taking time to ask what the community would like for new features, kudos and good luck!

I think an early release of the engine would be awesome, although I'm ignorant of exactly how it would work. Would it simply overwrite original CoP bins and apply to the vanilla game? If so I myself would love to get my hands on it just to see what it can do.

The weapons all look pretty good, except it seems like the hammer on the CZ-75 never moves, which irks me slightly.

I love all of the updates coming from these STALKER mods, good luck on your continuing work!

Will I be able to substitute vanilla configs in? I really don't like OWR 2's weapon models. If it requires merging I can most likely do it, but if I can just overwrite it that's great.

This is... different, I'd say.

I'm not sure if I'd like it without a giant monitor, trying to distinguish certain items and read how much ammo is in a box in my backpack might be difficult for some.

The ammo on belt thing could also be quite tedious in practice, unless you have an ammo reboxing mod (like that one for SoC) implemented. Otherwise we could frequently be placing "boxes" of 3, 7, and 2 rounds (as opposed to full 30 round boxes) in the belt.

I think your last idea of rearranging the original UI would be best. And with "less is more," you're actually adding knife and binocular slots, as well as 5 extra belt slots and tens more grids.

Just my two cents, you're doing great work!

This seems reasonable, although hardly ideal in my opinion. I've heard that some weapon mods are planning to make mergers with this one when it comes out. Perhaps they can address the idea of parts commonality then.

****! I totally forgot where the Q+A was on this mod's page and so I posted my question in the announcement. Here it is, if it's too late I understand.

Do you plan on adding some "immersive" combat features? I guess what I'm thinking of is much louder bullet whizzing/snapping and maybe some Insurgency/Project Reality-esque screen effects when you're shot at. It would make combat far more interesting, and IMO could do wonders for combat balance and difficulty, since you will have an incentive to find cover and not just run around being Rambo.

Another idea is to focus on a sort of ironically bleak atmosphere of the Zone. That is, that the Zone is lush and beautiful, being untouched by humans for decades, yet also depressing because of the anomalies and how quickly and painfully someone can die at any moment.

Very cool! Although, IIRC, the PBS-5 is for 9x39mm, PBS-4 is made for 5.45x39mm (specifically AKS-74U). Also the suppressor seems to be mounted upside-down and slightly forward. It should be mounted with the little compensator at the end facing up (directs muzzle blast upward, and recoil down) and it should be covering the entire muzzle brake forward of the front sight (mounts in place of standard muzzle brake).

Good luck on your relaunch, I'm loving all of the new content!

Excellent! No more goddamn 20-round mags and short barrels on a Soviet surplus weapon. The dovetail mount addition is also a great idea, balances things out so you aren't just using an old semi-auto with 10 rounds and no optics.

Oh god Heffy's plum AK-74, muh ****.

Awesome stuff here, cool to see new Russian sights on these weapons.

As a bit of a side note, are you planning to add the rest of Heffy's AK pack to replace the miscellaneous models? I find that using Millenia's AKS-74U and that other AK-47 model kind of seem out of place.

Cetlysm posted an excellent guide to installing Arsenal Overhaul with MSO and Atmosfear, which worked for me. If you don't want Absolute Nature, you can most likely just skip that step.

Proper way to install AO + MSO + AF:
1. Open fsgame.ltx located in the installation main folder with notepad or text program and change:
$game_data$ = false| true|
$game_data$ = true| true|

2. Drag the main mod gamedata into install folder (nothing should overwrite)

3. Drag the MSO gamedata from optional addons into the main install folder and overwrite

4. Choose any of the *optionals* from the MSO folder and drag them into install folder and overwrite (I didn't choose any, game works perfect this way, if you want hostile bandits don't install hostile bandits until after you're done with the bandit raid mission)

5.Run Atmosfear.exe and install with desired settings (DO NOT INSTALL NANO HUD when asked for it)

6. Copy the Atmosfear patch into install folder and overwrite.

7. Run the game once and exit.

8. Install Absolute Nature and choose desired options.

9. Go to the MSO folder in optional addons and drag the MSO_&_Atmosfear_3_patch gamedata into the install and overwrite.

10. Done, Drag FoV changer to the folder, (only overwrite should be bin folder) open and choose the right number to change FoV 54-58)

11. Install the correct aspect ratio for scopes (don't do anything if you're already 16x9)

Don't install Prefetch enabled or starting gear from the optional addons folder, install them from the MSO folder if you installed MSO.

Hey tsf,

If you're still struggling to find a night vision scope for NATO weapons, I might suggest the AN/PVS-4.

Says that over 150,000 have been built in the US alone, and it has been widely used in the US Army since the First Gulf War.

I hope the mod is developing well, good luck!
