File Description

the aim button will now raise the weapon's sights and line them up properly so that you can actually aim with them. But wait, there's more! When you're not in aiming mode, the weapon is now held realistically at "low ready", making it easier to take close range shots in the absence of the crosshair, which has been totally removed.

The weapons included are the G36, AK47, Mk23 (dual Mk23's do not have iron sights, for obvious reasons), HK416, M16A3 and SCAR-H (the 7.62x51mm one).

Functional Iron Sights v0.9" for Soldier of Fortune: Payback v1.1

If you were disappointed by SoF: PB's completely aesthetic and pointless iron sights, this is the mod for you! At the time of this release, I have six guns completed, and I'll be releasing more as I get them done. 

Now on to the exciting features! The aim button will now raise the weapon's sights and line them up properly so that you can actually aim with them. When the iron sights are not being used, the weapon is held realistically at "low ready", making it easier to take close range shots in the absence of the crosshair, which has been totally removed. In fact, because the crosshair HAS been removed, I recommend that you only use the iron sights of the weapons that are done, and put opticals of some sort on everything else.


Installation
----------------------------

First make sure you've installed the 1.1 patch. Then extract both folders (Models and Gui2) into your main Soldier of Fortune: Payback folder and overwrite any old files from previous versions of this mod. 

Current weapons:

AK47

G36k

HK416

M16A3

Mk23

SCAR-H 


Known Issues
----------------------------

Due to the small rear sight opening on the M16A3, and the fact that moving it any closer to the screen causes clipping during recoil, it can be somewhat difficult to see through to your target. If this causes significant problems, I'll look into an alternative.


Thanks To
----------------------------

Thorny23, for instantly responding to my posts in the sofpayback.com Modding forum.

Panosb, for explaining how to properly pack a .fs file using the unfs.exe utility.

RCF, for discovering that it's not necessary to repack edited files (which saved me LOADS of time), and for explaning where exactly to put those files when I managed to misunderstand his original post on the subject.

Everyone who's given me feedback so far.


Disclaimer
-----------------------------

As everyone says when they release a mod (even thought it would be just about IMPOSSIBLE): If this mod manages to damage your computer in some way, I cannot be held responsible. 


Legal stuff
-----------------------------

Do not sell this mod, use it in whole or in part without my permission, or redistribute it without an unaltered copy of this readme file.
