Welcome to my mod. Since I've been playing Vegas 1 & 2 I've heard people complain that certain weapons in the game just aren't realistic. So I researched the weapons in the game and found... They were right! While I haven't adjusted characteristics like the steadiness (or lack thereof) of the weapons when being held or fired (yet, I just might later), I have changed just about everything else. WARNING!!! This mod increases the realism of the game, i.e. it is even more difficult. But since the game has been out for a while I thought people might be up for a little more of a challenge. I adjusted all the weapons to have characteristics closer to the real ones. Most weapons now have slightly better penetration. Weight and fire rate is also now proportional to the real weapon's. I took away unlimited pistol ammo. Movement speed is now proportional to the weapon's weight. Ammo carrying ability is also more realistic. Weapons feature realistic fire select options. Realistic silencers & more.

So, I'm back at it. I usually do short controlled bursts when I play, like you are supposed to. But like in so many things in life when you get bored you often don't do what you are supposed to. So I'm just doing mag dumps. No, it's when you shoot the gun until its empty. No that's not what I meant either.

I noticed my bullet spread was HUGE! So I'm working on getting it under control. I mean, these guys are professionals. They wouldn't go spraying all over the place. Really people!? Keep it together!

What I'm trying to say is I'm working on an update. So, if you haven't already, download the Mod, update it to 2.4.4 and play. Then let me know what you think. And if you like it, vote for it as Mod of the Year.

Have Fun

and

Keep Modding

this is just a tip just in case, most ppl think damage is based on calibre only when weapon velocity almost no pun impact a bullets power/tradjectory so even if 2 diff weapons using same bullet, if one has more velocity in the weapon itself well, that one will have slightly more power etc

Is this mod still being developed?
There's still some unfixed issues from my playthroughs like the G3 or some other firearms making not making any firing sounds; making it hard to track enemies that use them.
Enemy damage also needs to be tweaked or at least how damage is dealt on player headshots. Feels off that wearing chunky head gear can't even stop a handgun...

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have been playing this game for a week and I have come across some bugs.

In Píc des Pyreneés, if I pick a AK-47, I would have 5~6 mags and would increase to 9, if come across other AK-74 liying on the ground.

During the mission on the rooftops, if I hold my MP5N having... 11 mags!? And come across some Škorpion, I would increase my mags to 20!

On recreation center would happen the same thing as in Píc des Pyreneés with the AK-47, but with the FN FNC stacking up to 11 mags!

There is some big issues with the ammo/mag count on this mod and breaks that starting feeling of "I have 5 pistol, 10 smg and 4 ar mags; better make them count", wenn you resupply you end up having 7 pistol, 20 smg and 11 ar mags...

I hope a future patch, fix this bug and set the mag count to a more "realistic" count like 4/8/4.

Working on this now. I also think it would be more of a challenge. Force you to pick up guns more often. I'm working on integrating how much ammo you carry into movement speed as well, not just weapon weight. This should add another aspect into weapon selection. I'm also working on making the bullet spread more realistic. Keep checking back. I hope to have an update in the not too distant future. Thanks for the feedback!

So I picked this game up recently, played it through with my uncle on the coop. I played it like back in 2008 or something, thought it was cool then.

Playing it now, I see that armor is completely useless.

Where in the game files is armor located? I'd love to make the armor actually matter, as well as add armor to the head......

I get armor isnt magical, but good lord....it stops nothing.....modern armor can stop some shots, but not in this game....there is no differnce between 0 or 10 armor...

You can't change how armor works in-game. IIRC light armor (1-3 bars) reduces damage by 10%, medium (4-6 bars) is 25% and heavy (7-10 bars) is 35%. No armor to the head. That's hardcoded. Which weapons are one shoting you? the 7.62?

Jose is right. You cannot change the armor. What I did in my mod was to tune the damage range so the it matched the armor. Light armor is like Class II and stops most pistol rounds. Medium is is like Class III and Heavy is like Class IV. Most Class IV armor uses ceramic plates that are designed to stop four 7.62mm rounds. The Heavy armor simulates this as well. The way that armor is set up actually works out to be fairly realistic. Armor stops the bullet from penetrating by spreading out the impact. So you still get hurt even if it doesn't kill you. I hope you like playing Vegas 2 better with my mod!

Loving the mod. Definitely deserved a good review.
I have encountered some issues though.
If I have armour on and pull out my pistol, I suddenly turn into Usain Bolt. Feels a bit weird, and I often have to stop myself from abusing it.
Sometimes I also have inconsistent speed when running with average armour and and smg.

I also agree that the shotguns are overpowered. They've been causing a lot of problems for me.

But all in all this mod is brilliant.

Glad you love the mod! Unfortunately the Usain Bolt syndrome is caused by the game only recognizing the weight of the gun you have in your hand and not any that are holstered. It is most noticeable, for example, when you switch from the 20+ pounds FN MK46 LMG to the HK USP at under 2 pounds. It's like suddenly loosing 20 pounds! I've tried to to work around this, but I have not found a solution.
Check out the new patch for the mod! I completely revamped the shotguns. Let me know what you think!
