Weapon Upgrades are not compatible with silencers, even the one that says it is installed as a weapon upgrade (though you cannot see it, and it does not silence your weapon). It will result in your weapon having the stats as if it did not have any upgrades that effect damage, range, bullet speed, or knockback (impact). This will only last as long as the silencer is attached, but with the better upgrades on a good rifle, this is pretty bad.
If we (the modders) figure out a way to correct this, or if GSC acknowledges that it never worked and then fix it, I will post the info here.
I just up the hit power with a silencer on to negate this problem. Not really a problem. I use the IL86 with upgrades. It works just fine.
I silence all my weapons and I've never had this problem before. o.O
I have to say I've seen this little issue here and there. Any stat that the Silencer affects will be confined to whatever the Silencer base stat is when the silencer is equipped, regardless of if upgrades have been applied to boost it further.
I wonder. Is it possible to just erase the silencer stats altogether, or would that cause a CTD? Cause if so, I wonder if this problem would just go away....
I was mistaken, they do work after all. I had removed some nonsensical code, but now I understand that is was just lazy coding. Go [COLOR=Purple]here[/COLOR] for a more in depth explanation.
The silencer_ stats in the individual weapon files are not used anymore. They were too lazy to remove them. Now all silencers reduce your weapon's stats by about 20% regardless of the weapon or the round being used. They just nerfed any realism with silencers, but I am going to try and de-nerf it.
Blah, is that so? Damn, now I'll have to alter my mod's own changes to negate that as well.
The trick here is, depending on the mod & even in the original game, don't leave your weapons other than in your backpack. In the original game when I first played it, even though I left everything in the backpack, I had upgraded them but when I left AGRO, entering Yanta, all my upgrades were gone whereas I was back to basic weaponery which made me very angry, spending all that hard earned cash for nothing! Very dissappointed in that glitch!
By the way, always check your inventory before & after a portal making sure you save it at the entrance into it just in case somethings goes amiss!
