You paid for the vice, you either got or paid for the tools to dismantle your parts, your stuff's too busted to repair with the toolkits anyways, so you are going to get to put those parts, IN YOUR DAMN GUN.
Comes with three versions now: Repairs, Upgrades, & Both
Installation: Put the relevant gamedata folder in your main STALKER install directory. Even if a gamedata folder already exists. The addon is a single file in [install]/gamedata/scripts
Alternatively, if you use JSGME, put the folders in your MODS folder, and then activate the one you want.
A hacky fix for Naxza's No Toolkit Requirement mod. It SHOULD work but, it might still crash under certain conditions I've not tested yet. If it does crash, please comment right away.
Well hey, what's the point of those repair kits then if you don't need them for the vice?
Good question, but to me their existence is justified by the relative ease; You don't need parts to use 'em, you can just repair items flat out without expending anything other than a charge. Not all the parts you'll get will be in pristine condition anyways, so it's still really nice to have something you can just bump their condition up with.
Side note: Pairs great with Grok's Craft & Repair Overhaul
