Well, I tried releasing this over at the BI Forums, but it went over like a cold day at the beach
So, I thought I'd try it here, seeing as most people here are more mission editing minded.
First off, this addon is for mission makers only. This is not something you can play with in the editor, it requires some setting up.
This addon adds weapon sights usable for any cutscene, much like the binocular resource that came with the game. It includes every weapon I could think of and find, which, AFAIK, is every weapon that came with the game. See the included example mission.
Now, why should you use my addon instead of doing this yourself? Because, when an optic file is defined as a resource, it is turned upside-down. My addon corrected this issue. Also, most of the optic files that came with the game give errors. Again, my pack fixes this.
See the readme for more info.
What I'd like to know from mission makers is:
1. Is this pack complete and satisfactory?
2. Would you use something like this, or find is potentially useful?
3. Do you even care?
One other thing, the optic sights that come with the game also include the muzzle flash. My pack removes this.
