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.

After many months, the Iron Sights Mod is officially released.

Posted by SemiMono on Oct 7th, 2012

Hello fellow gamers!

At long last, the Iron Sights Mod is released! Yes, I know this should have happened months ago, but it's better now than never. The main changes from alpha 1.1 (yes, I completely skipped beta) are mostly for stability. I haven't encountered any errors, crashes, or annoyances in this most recent iteration, and that shouldn't be a unique experience. I also tweaked the recoil animations and put the videos back into operation.

The full list of features is as follows:

  • Fully functional iron sights for the M4, Falcon, Jackhammer, MP5, and M249.
  • Faster transitions in and out of iron sights.
  • Higher mouse sensitivity while zoomed.
  • New recoil animations when zoomed.
  • A red dot sight for the P90.
  • Smooth transitions in and out of all scopes.
  • Menu options to disable iron sights or crosshairs.

Because it seems the P90 isn't a gun but a sniper in FC.

Yeah, I can understand the frustration with this one. It was simply because I had no better option short of remaking the P90 model. To do it properly, the model would be remade with a functional reflex sight built into it, I just didn't have the equipment or talent to do that.

I was a tad worried that this VERY worthwhile endeavor had gone the way of the ghost. I'm happy to be proved wrong.

Out of all of the FC mods out there, this is THE one that will get me to reinstall the game.

Few things increase the sense of immersion more than functional iron sights. In fact, I will not even consider purchasing a title if it doesn't have them.

Thank you for all of your hard efforts, and I look forward to any future work that you participate in.

I can't ever imagine Far Cry not being in my top 3 all-time favorite shooters and it's things like this which make it so. Nice work matey, thanks a lot.

place originals each weapon names, this would be very good, does anyone know how?

PS: Do not believe the speed of running some weapons too weak?
