Changelog.

UPDATE 3
- Added a patch for the mod "EFT-Style Reposition", make sure to choose accordingly depending if you have or not Blindside's anims.

UPDATE 2
- Improved the texture, most specifically on the specular, details as follow:
* Text is now much better visible and adjusted
* Receiver has much better worn and shine
* Edges & Corners, especially seen on the scopemount, are much more pronounced
* Magazine now has slightly more signs of wear & dirt, this is because of the idea that the stalkers most surely re-use their magazines.
* More "scratched" details, mostly visible on the firemode selector and receiver.
- Added a new addon; NO-STAL-GIA, this changes the plastic to a darkish worn green and a lighter metal, perfect for those that are nostalgic to the old STALKER games.
- The gun uses a proper icon now

UPDATE 1
- Added a new addon; "Blindside's Animations Addon", you can even install without the original mod itself if you want to.

F.A.Q.

"Will there be 'compatibility patches' with [ADD MOD HERE]?"
No, but I do accept user-made patches, as long as they are good and stable.

"Can this mod work in other STALKER mods/games?"
Most surely, yes, but you'll have to do some merging and the like.

"Will with work with Ken's Enhanced Shaders?"
Yes, it's also recommended (with PBR) since it makes the shininess prettier, but this is subjective.

"Will this work with Grok's Ballistic Overhaul?"
Yes, install/load this mod last.

Thanks for the great mod.
I'm glad to see the model and texture improvements, but the weapon rebalancing is fresh and the most fun.
So far your mods have been AR and SR, and now SG has been released. Do you have any plans for the next one?

Yes, the next plan is to make "The G36 Pack", which will have G36s of all families. I think the best part about it is the fact you can use both scopes on the G36 itself.

The Saiga is the best and largest of all the weapons I have ever known, since I used it in the game "War Z" by the ineffable Sergey Titov.

Hotdamn!

Lovely model and animations!

I found a small error on the model, you can see past the dust cover release "into" the model when ads.

What about the textures?

Also, I need a screenshot of that, I don't seem to have the issue on my end.

I'll take a pic. Textures seem pixelated in areas.

Here's a screenshot: Pasteboard.co

What you can see through there is parts of the fingers and the handguard I guess.

P.s. I checked out your screenshots in the description and you can also see it a little more clearly on the second screen.

Ah yes, that, it's actually intentional.

It's one of the reasons I say the model is professional.

It looks a bit wonky because Anomaly doesn't have the best shadows, but still.

Damn this is cool! Are you planning on doing this with every gun in the game?

Not all weapons, but most of them yes.

For example, PPSh and AKS74 are good as-is, but AKM and AK74 need a better texture despite having a good model.

And then there are weapons like the SG 550, MK 14, F2000 and the like that REALLY need a new model.

Also as I mentioned before, there is a G36 Pack on the works.

If you change the MK 14 you're a legend, I love the gun (Especially with Hellblau's full auto mod) but the model is atrocious

Is it just me or is protagonist charging an empty magazine? But overall a great model, thanks. How about adding Kar98k from STCoP or TAZ? I have done this before for myself, but the animation could not be transferred. I'm surprised that no one has replaced this rifle during the entire existence of the mod.

Sorry, not interested in WW rifles, it also makes no sense for me that these weapons appear in The Zone, except for the SKS.

If The Zone were real, there would hardly be anything other than AK / Saiga and some civilian rifles and carbines. In any case, I will wait for new addons.

My friend Blackgrowl took a look at the K98, he says it's good as-is.

Only thing that needs to be changed is the texture a bit + some changes on the model lighting, and it can be good as new, if not better.

He MIGHT do it, fingers crossed.

Not with EFT Repositions, a patch must be made.

That could be arranged, you should make a Moddb account and send me a PM giving me the details.

Hey man, love your work :)

I was really happy to see you fix the saiga, the gun looks beautiful and the sight is so much better. I'm not sure about the mag size though. I saw somewhere that you're thinking of fixing the vepr too, so you have the option (for balance) to keep the saiga with an 8-rounder and the vepr with a 10-rounder mag box. Although the current 12-rounder box is very a very attractive option, perhaps it's a bit too much, rendering all other shotguns useless, and with the addition of the vepr later on (which should be better), so... I don't know. Just leaving you some feedback, take it or leave it. Take care!

Upgrading the Saiga to the 3-round burst mode will cause it to lose its automatic firemode. Tested on both currently upgraded Saiga and a newly spawned one that is upgraded with debug mode's pocket workshop.

I believe adding a -1 to the fire_mode variable to \configs\items\weapons\upgrades\w_saiga12_up.ltx may do the trick, but I'm not too sure that is the only thing that has to be changed

Edit: adding the -1 to that upgrade file does restore automatic fire, and I'm not seeing any other issues.

Looks great, easy install with patches too; would be nice if it had shells in the magazine like vanilla (not to mention the SVD having no bullets in the mag.)

ZJ-B312 above me is correct about upgrading to 3-round burst removing full auto, however.

If anyone is trying to use this with Stealth, the new reload sounds provided in the Blindside's Anims patch will alert enemies. If you use YUNGPR1NCE's Re-Sound for Blindside's, these reload sounds will no longer alert enemies.
