Remember InfamousSabre’s Pickups mod?
Unfortunately his mod does not support the latest DLC weapons. As far as I know he’s busy right now so I tried it out to continue his work.
Updating 9 DLC weapons:
Arena War DLC: Up-n-Atomizer, Unholy Hellbringer, Widowmaker
The Diamond Casino Heist DLC: Ceramic Pistol, Navy Revolver, Hazardous Jerry Can
The Cayo Perico Heist DLC: Military Rifle, Combat Shotgun, Perico Pistol
Customized 8 slots (rearranged, based on michelangelo777):
3: Assault Rifle/Shotgun
4: Heavy Weapon
5: Sniper Rifle/Light Machine Gun/Miscellaneous
Or 4 slots (original of InfamousSabre):
1: (Light) Handgun/Melee
2: (Heavy) Submachine/Assault Rifle/Shotgun/Heavy Weapon/Sniper Rifle/Light Machine Gun/Miscellaneous
Add 4 new DLC weapons
0.7.alpha (GTA V v1.66 Los Santos Drug Wars)
Add 4 new DLC weapons
Fix the position of Micro SMG, Golf Club, Pool Cue, Baseball Bat
0.6.alpha (GTA V v1.61 Criminal Enterprises)
Add 3 new DLC weapons
0.5.test (GTA V v1.58 The Contract)
Add 4 new DLC weapons
Fix Double-action Revolver and Heavy Revolver Mk II do not have ammo
Re-organize OIV package
Rework the update.rpf/common/data/ai/weapons.meta from update 1.52. Preserving the properties of delayed hit (See video, sorry for my editting skill :P) from InfamousSabre’s old version with updated realistic bullet speed (muzzle velocity), while changing the maximum capacity of ammo (see the XLSX workbook for more details). The damage, recoil & other parameters are preserved from vanilla.
Update slots.xml so that weapon positions attached on body are correspondent to the weapon wheel.
Optional: pickups.xml and slots.xml with 4 slots such as InfamousSabre. (as a tribute to his work)
Change the order of slots in slots.xml
Rearrange weapons to its group in pickups.xml (was a mess in michelangelo777’s file, I’d prefer this way 🙂 thanks anyway pal)
Change ammo type of Minigun so that it could have 600 bullets (originally 180 bullets drain out too fast)
Change ammo type of Unholy Hellbringer, Widowmaker to have independent ammo (orginally use same ammo of Combat MG and Minigun)
BACKUP YOUR VANILLA FILES. NO UNINSTALLATION YET.
REQUIRED: Pickups 2.2 by InfamousSabre. My work only updates the new DLC weapons by overwriting his mod and WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT HIS MOD (AND BROKE YOUR GAME).
Automatic: use OpenIV to install the OIV package. Strongly recommend using ‘mods’ folder as there is no uninstallation yet.
Manual (If you wish to know in details which files I’ve altered): use OpenIV to replace the files WITH THE EXACT ORGANIZATION in the Manual folder. I’ve organized every files such that your game suffered the least amount of change, to avoid mod conflicts.
Optional 4 slots: copy pickups.xml and slots.xml to root/Pickups and replace
NO UNINSTALLATION YET, SO PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP.
