Description

Some of my personal changes to Dead Air Tweaks mod. I really enjoyed the original mod, however, i didn't like author's view on the game's balance, and wanted to make it closer to the hardcore of the origingal Dead Air.

I like the idea of more perks and loadouts, but everything else seems like it kind of makes stuff more useless. Not my cup of tea, but more addons are good!

well, that kinda was the idea
i didn't like PassiveAgressive's view on game's balance, and wanted to make it more like it was in the original game, where decent equipment, especially weapons, was a very rare thing at the beginning of a game.
i also wanted to force players to pick some equipment perks on the start, so that's why i added two more armor perks and removed armor from traders' stash on the first location.

I just installed your latest update from today, but I get a crash everytime I try to start a new game (after I picked my skills etc.) I use the latest 98b and a vanilla install, apart from the english patch.
The log gives me this:

FATAL ERROR

[error]Expression : <no expression>
[error]Function : CInifile::r_section
[error]File : Xr_ini.cpp
[error]Line : 520
[error]Description : fatal error
[error]Arguments : Can't open section 'ammo_knife'. Please attach [*.ini_log] file to your bug report

I'm not that good with this stuff, so maybe you can help me out. If you need any additional info, let me know.
TIA

i just checked out the startup with the same mods as you (vanilla, english translation and my mod) , and everything works fine
it's probably something on your end
also, it would be nice, if you told me what perks/loadouts causes the crash at the start, so i could check them out

i think it's some conflict with illuminating grenades mod, i'll check this out when i have time.
also notice the following:
- dead air outfit overhaul won't work correctly with this mod, since it alters trade configs. it was patched for the original dead air tweaks , but not for my mod.
- neutral mercs doesn't work properly with diehard2222's mod that disables shared reputation between ecologists and duty/military. only the mod that you installed last will work.

Can you bring back orginal addon's recoil? Because dead air's default recoil is horrible.

it is compatible with dead air tweaks saves.
should also be compatible with the vanilla ones, but i'm not 100% sure about that.

Good tweaks, everything works. I'm actually thankful for restoring weapon damage because it really destroyed the balance.
Does anybody know where can I change audio levels? Especially for guns? They are way too quiet for me and I don't see any option in the menu.

thanks :3
you can change sound and music levels in the options menu
if you want louder and more realistic gun sounds, i suggest you check out "gus' sounds mod"

I have gus sounds mod, these are pretty good but still quiet to me. I guess I've been spoiled after playing squad, escape from tarkov and visiting the range a couple times. Even .22 sounds more powerful than rifle rounds in dead air. Ok, I'll quit complaining now, thanks for the tweeks.

I have a problem with malfunctions. I'm only getting broken fire selector malfunction, and not any other. Even in 20% or less guns.

did you install it over original dead air tweaks?
if so, delete the original version and install my mod only, the tweaks mod itself is included.

Thanks for those awesome tweaks, really enjoying them. Any chance to have a compatibility patch for the outfit overhaul addon or is it too much to ask?

Anyway thanks a lot for your job :)

thanks!
sorry, but i probably won't be releasing any updates in the near future.
as you could've noticed, i've dropped the work at the mod after november or so, because i'm too busy studying and working part time and i just don't feel like spending the little time i have now to work on stuff like that
maybe i'll do something after the new version of DA itself comes out, i've had some plans before i dropped the mod, we'll see

anyway, it isn't like i did much, i just tweaked the original mod because i didn't like some stuff and then i felt like sharing it
if you don't want to wait you can just make some changes that suit you in the game files, it's very simple, really.
