Info about weapon updates, FPD, work progress, and delay of release.

Posted by on

Hello, users of MODDB and everyone. First of all thanks to MODDB site, this is real good gaming site with kind community. Thanks to community for support and comments. It gives me momentum to work faster.

Date of release

So. I'm affraid I will not finish mod to the end of this month. But next month is for sure. I've started in April 2017. So, it seems depelopment is in progress almost an year now. Wow.

Weapon updates

I've found that some weapons had bad run animations, I mean real bad, there was abrupting movements. So I've replaced AKS74, AKS74 "Combat" (it's AK47 "Kobra" now) and Gauss. Changed texture of AKS74u for more smooth one. So now running animations is cool. Also, there is no such a thing, when you see the end of your hands during reloading. Or when attached scope is "disappearing" in actor's head. But there is still no cure for fast stopping animation with attached underbarrel grenade launcher. Anyway, it's just like actor is pulling gun very fast. Reload animations from STCOP was pretty, but AO's models has better run animations, I've chose second.

AKS74 new model

AKS74 "Kobra"

AKS74u new texture

New Gauss

Here is my handmade upgrade icons. Knife and grenades are needed for actor's favourite weapon showing. I've made them because I noticed weapon packs has icons not 100% true to models. Equipment icons also have being edit.

FPD

Also, I've added first person death by SkyLoader. There was bug, now helmet on actor when dying. So now actor just fall down. And it's cool, I think.

Scopes update

Then, I've started to work with scopes textures and have edited Absolutes scopes by CrommCruac. I've made different texture link to different scope models. And changed equipment icons. Icon of scope shows it's color. And color means that: orange - standard, green - more range, red - detector\zoom, gray - nightvision. Here is PSO series.

Here is Susat series. Also left Dusk scope without lens marking as it was in original.

May be this scope marking is not better than vanilla, but it's more useful, and you actually see what you have in backpack.

Weapons with integrated scopes are in development. I'm thinking what and how to do better. There are also some things to do, so stay tuned!

Regards, ABR.

Nice work, dude! I really like your work. ;) You mean next month, right? I hope is my birthday gift. XD
PS: Basically, I not like addons collection type's mod, but your mod is expect, because you have your work inside and make them perfect, so this is why I like. ;)

When do you have your birthday?
I've released just a merged mod pack earlier, but I've decided to make a good overhaul with quality, not quantity.

Well. My mod will be late peresent for your birthday. Btw thanks.
That's not stupid question at all. It needs original COP, but setup is very simple. Just drag & copy folders. I've patched engine, inculded user file.
Also there will be patch for squarish monitors. It should be used with some resolutions, if minimap is outside of the screen. And additional map textures with stashes marks. Mod will be around 1.5-2GB. I'll try to compress it with 7z to the max.

Thank you for your words! I'm very glad to hear that. This is for vanilla COP. No COC. COC is very complex mod, as I undestand. Don't know is it possible to adapt. Time will show. I'll download COC sometime and check things.
