Replaces the simple zoom for weapons without scopes with full iron sights. It doesn't simply use an image, the front and back sight actually line up in the center of the screen over the crosshair. There is a new option to remove the crosshair.

Very nice!!! Seems the m249 finally has Iron Sights now.
Downloading...btw I've been doing some Iron sights modding as well on this old but super cool hl2 mod called smod. Man it's take lots of trial and error to get the proper coordinates for sights to align...is that how you do it as well?

I started out by doing trial and error, but eventually I changed the weapon scripts to reroute the fire and reload buttons to incrementally change the position offset and angles instead of making the weapon fire or reload. It still takes a little while, but after some practice, It only takes me about fifteen minutes per gun. Another thing I do when I'm adjusting them is increase the amount that the view zooms in, making it possible to make the iron sights more accurate to where the weapon is actually aiming. I hope that helps!
I'm glad you like it, and yeah, I noticed that I forgot about the M249 in the previous versions so I added it in.

Happy playing and modding!

Nice mod! Always questioned why they didn't do iron sights in the first place but this makes it much more fun

Really god job man; thank you ;)
I'm currently porting some weapons from other mod (AngusWeaponMod, JackFarmer, etc.) so they have correct ironsight alignment. If you want to have my scripts for those weapons, drop me a message; I'll be glad to share this with you.
BTW, I didn't achieve to make the M4 like in the video (not a big deal)

Thank you! If I ever get back into the swing of modding Far Cry (simply depends on how much free time I have), I will be sure to ask you for those! Hopefully one day, before the game becomes too terribly out dated. :P
What exactly did you mean about the M4? PM me if you want.

Cheerio!
