DLX Weapons Fix – Aligned Sights, Aiming Directly From the Scope and More

7 days to die dlx weapons fix - aligned sights aiming directly from the scope and more, 7 days to die weapons

Welcome to DanyEr12LX’s mod project!

This mod was born with the purpose of fixing the iron sights of all weapons! How? His goal is to adjust the height of the front sights, align them correctly with the rear sight, and add the latter to all weapons that are missing one.

Over time he has gradually improved other aspects and added new components where he could.

Here he completely overhauled the concept of aiming with the scope, using the real scope on the weapon rather than a small reticle drawn on a black background.

This game has caught his attention since the very earliest alphas (He’s one of the players who played Alpha 1 back in 2013) and he fell in love with this game from the early days. But there are some things, like weapon mechanics, that have always left him wanting. That’s why, starting a few months ago, he finally learned how to edit and create a mod for this game.

This is the first in a series of Mods that will cover the majority of current weapons.

Weapons currently treated: Pistol, Ak 47, Hunting Rifle. Over time he will cover other weapons, such as the Magnum, SMG, Lever Action Rifle and so on.

Stay Tuned for more additions…

P.S. He recommend using this mod alongside Ragnar’s Mod FovChanger and set it to 60.

So, Here’s What’s in This Mod

Main Goal

Sight

  • The rear sight is shortened to the right height.
  • The Scope, Reflex, and the Iron sight are perfectly aligned.
  • CameraOffset Z, which is basically the zoom on the weapon when aiming, is correctly set.

Scope Overhaul

  • Completely overhauled the Scope concept, removing the old zoom method accompanied by a reticle in a completely black background.
  • You can now use the Scope directly from the Scope Model (In a COD-BF style).
  • Added an external slide that reflects the external environment in a dynamic way.
  • The inner slide contains a reticle and a central bright spot, all set in a dusty reddish background.
  • Improved Textures, so that you can zoom in on the Scope model without losing texture quality.
  • Improved Mesh, so that you can zoom in on a well rounded Scope model.
  • The Zoom is correct: by aiming the objects will be magnified exactly twice for the 2X, four times for the 4X and eight times for the 8X Scope.
  • Added Scratches on the right side of the Scope to help distinguish the 2X and 4X scopes.
  • Added a Blur Background for the 4X and 8X Scope.

Bullet Shell and Muzzle Smoke, Muzzle Fire and Muzzle Light

  • Added a Bullet Shell of the right caliber that exits the weapon chamber, visible both when shooting from the hip and when aiming.
  • The Bullet Shell dynamically interacts with the external environment.
  • Added Muzzle Smoke coming out of the chamber after firing.
  • Added Muzzle Fire, consisting of 3 different particles, different in shape each time the weapon fires.
  • Added a Muzzle Light that illuminates the surroundings of the weapon.

Animations

  • Improved Weapon Fire and Weapon Reload Animations to make them smoother.
  • New weapon components have been animated, such as the Pistol Hammer or the Ak 47 Charging Handle.

New Mod Models

Added new models for mods currently not visible on the weapon, such as the Magazine Extender, Muzzle Brake, Fore Grip etc…

  1. Looks great.

    Only thing I would critique is the Chevron. It would be delightful if you added a normal + scope option.
