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...

Is there any way to merge the mod files together? Cuz i'd love to play it alongside the Enhanced Realism Mod...

There might be. It depends on how extensively the Enhanced Realism Mod changes the game. I may try to contact the creator and work with him on creating a merged version. Thanks for the suggestion!

Well, my main computer's hard drive failed. I'm not sure yet if I will be able to recover any of the files, but it looks like most likely not. I have yet to take it apart and see if I can get it spinning again. However, I did have some backups of the mod online and on another comp, so I should be able to get the latest version, up eventually, it just might take me a bit MORE time to either recover it or rebuild it from the older versions. I'll let you know what I can find out. I'm very sorry for the long delay, and I hope the wait will soon be over!

Just wanted to say thank you very much for this. I've been looking for something like this for a long time. Far Cry is probably my most replayed game and coming off of playing far cry 2 and crysis warhead it was a little underwelming but this mod breathes a whole new life and challenge back into Far Cry, thanks again.

I'm glad to hear it thank you! I'm sorry I haven't been supporting it very much as of late, but I might release a final version very shortly here. I've mostly fixed glitches since the last release, and since I hadn't had any complaints about them I hadn't updated it yet. Hopefully in a few days I'll have a release up!
