Description

Centers the iron-sights, holo-sights, and 3D scopes in Arsenal Overhaul 3. Also sets zoom scaling to usable degree. Also improves handling. It's a bit nuts.

Just some quick notes.

I buffed the knife fairly significantly. Boxes die in one right-click, as does most anything less tough than a box. For your info, boars are about as strong as boxes! In the early game, you may think the knife is very over-powered. Hold that thought. We'll have a good chuckle about it together when you're in the late game.

The handling improvement only means that it's easier to swing your gun around. I removed the initial penalty, so to speak. Guns still get penalties for weight and their handling stat, and you will feel subtle differences as you play around with that reducing weight and adding upgrades, but the differences between different kinds of receivers is minimized, if that makes sense. Honestly, it's something you have to play with to understand. I think it's a massive improvement.

I have also slightly reduced the time to zoom in. Just to make things feel smoother.

TIP: put the AO3 multitool on your F4 quick-slot. Yank that scope off at a moment's notice when you have to. It's convenient.

Hi I keep crashing when I install this mod.

Hey, thanks for the report. I assume the error comes up when you start a new game? I've tried to reproduce this error, but have been unsuccessful. It's the developer's curse: if I install CotZ 1.2, AO3 0.7 on top of that and my addon on top of that, it just works.

I can tell you that there is no wpn_vz65_5, so the error makes sense. I have no idea where it's getting that _5 from.

So, quiz time!

- Are you installing on top of CotZ 1.2 with AO3?
- What other addons do you have installed?
- Which version of my addon are you trying to install, zoomed or non-zoomed? (it shouldn't matter, but maybe it narrows down the issue)

EDIT:
I am a creepy stalker type dude and glanced at your profile. I noticed you like Project Brutality. Why don't we just skip the foreplay and go straight to Mahzra's Package? ;)

EDIT2: Have you installed any of the AO3 optionals, and if so, which ones? My addon is made for just base AO3, the only optional I tested is the excellent No Sway patch.

I have nimble's legendary arsenal installed.

No other addons and the zoomed version.

It actually crashes when I try to load my game in progress and works fine with a new game?

Install this on top. I patched the affected weapons so you should be able to load your game and have those weapons back all improved and stuff.

Great mod, man.

Is RG-6 still broken, though? :D

I replaced it with a 5.56 Sako TRG in my own game and can't be arsed to fix the grenade launcher. :D

When I do another pass of sight corrections I'll just put my custom Sako in as sort of an easter egg.

After installing this addon, delete wpn_addon_reticle_kobra.dds and wpn_addon_reticle_ekp.dds in gamedata\textures\wpn, and the vintorez versions as well if you have those. That should give you back your three lines sights.
