ABR MOD


ABR MOD is new overhaul mod as alternative to Complete Mod. You can consider this mod just like a pack with merged mods, but it was made as one solid overhaul with its own balance, graphics and audio. However, this mod doesn't change game dramatically. The main goal is to make COP up to date and give good experience for a couple of game sessions with same atmosphere. So, it's just a good renewal and a reason to go back to the Zone for one more time.

Hello, users of MODDB and everyone. First of all thanks to MODDB site, this is real good gaming site with kind community. Thanks to community for support and comments. It gives me momentum to work faster.

Date of release

So. I'm affraid I will not finish mod to the end of this month. But next month is for sure. I've started in April 2017. So, it seems depelopment is in progress almost an year now. Wow.

Weapon updates

I've found that some weapons had bad run animations, I mean real bad, there was abrupting movements. So I've replaced AKS74, AKS74 "Combat" (it's AK47 "Kobra" now) and Gauss. Changed texture of AKS74u for more smooth one. So now running animations is cool. Also, there is no such a thing, when you see the end of your hands during reloading. Or when attached scope is "disappearing" in actor's head. But there is still no cure for fast stopping animation with attached underbarrel grenade launcher. Anyway, it's just like actor is pulling gun very fast. Reload animations from STCOP was pretty, but AO's models has better run animations, I've chose second.

AKS74 new model

AKS74 "Kobra"

AKS74u new texture

New Gauss

Here is my handmade upgrade icons. Knife and grenades are needed for actor's favourite weapon showing. I've made them because I noticed weapon packs has icons not 100% true to models. Equipment icons also have being edit.

Upgrade icons

FPD

Also, I've added first person death by SkyLoader. There was bug, now helmet on actor when dying. So now actor just fall down. And it's cool, I think.

Scopes update

Then, I've started to work with scopes textures and have edited Absolutes scopes by CrommCruac. I've made different texture link to different scope models. And changed equipment icons. Icon of scope shows it's color. And color means that: orange - standard, green - more range, red - detector\zoom, gray - nightvision. Here is PSO series.

Here is Susat series. Also left Dusk scope without lens marking as it was in original.

May be this scope marking is not better than vanilla, but it's more useful, and you actually see what you have in backpack.

Weapons with integrated scopes are in development. I'm thinking what and how to do better. There are also some things to do, so stay tuned!

Regards, ABR.

No. I searched and there is no official PRP. It's mentioned only in Special Edition Mod.

Can't wait to try out this mod on release! Is there a way to enable emissions?

Thanks! Unfortunatly not. In the start there was bug - music didn't start after emission. Then after setting everything in weather, sun was going crazy and flowing fast in the skies before emission. And I'm not scripter to make everything shiny. And the most sad thing about emissions is AI behavior. I was standing in cover and enemies just walked to me to wait emission too. Well, it was atmosphere breaking. I would happy to keep it, but I couldn't.

Do you consider ask some modders to help with that?

Simple example. I've asked how to spaw some bodies around Major on start of the game. Modders said: make it thru the script. Genius. I'm really tired and just can't wait to finish everything. Only one or two times somde people helped me. But that's the minority of cases.

It's a waste of time. They just say some common things that never helps or just don't say anything. I've asked Cromm, but he's busy enough, because he didn't answered. So I am alone in this.
