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.

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.

The final release of the Iron Sights Mod. It includes all of the most recent features and fixes and should be glitch free.

The next iteration. A number of new features have been added, some smaller, some larger. (But it's OLD now!)

(SO OLD!) The first playable version of the mod. It should be stable and free of any major glitches, but not every feature is implemented or perfected...

If I had modelling tools and the skill I would, but unluckily I have neither. You could ask some of the other Far Cry mod developers though.

I'm pretty sure you don't need the disk as long as patch v1.4 works with it there shouldn't be any problems.

Unluckily the developers never released a 64 bit version of the sdk, so I cannot make a 64bit version. Currently the mod auto deactivates iron sights if you load it in the 64bit version of the game as they will not work. As for FCAM, Garcy will be releasing a version with iron sights included soon. You could maybe mesh them with FCAM now, but if you want to play multiplayer with it, you will have to wait for Garcy to finish implementing it.

I love iron sights it took me 2 years lol to finally get 2 working iron sights plugins for CS 1.6. SMOD was great made 50+ custom weapons painfully scripting iron sights coordinates to those high quality CSS, DODS, hl2dm custom weapons mostly made by Twinkie Masta so I can enjoy playing CSS SCI FI smod to the max. Now iron sights for FC ...really completes this classic game! Tnx man!

Oh btw here's my cs iron sight mods hope it's ok to pimp them a little here hehe...

Thank you very much, and nicely done! I wish Far Cry had as many guns as your mod to make my mod more substantial, but good luck with it!
