What about Iron Sights?
I mean, I'm suprised no one have thought of this before; making a hl2 mode that implements iron sights for weapons. Can you imagine how cool would it be to actually using the laser aim of the machine gun, and how more strategic battles would be with this implementation?

"surprised no one have thought of this"
"no one thought of this"
"no one thought"
"no one"

People have brought this up TOO many times.

Why not? the Triage mod implamented it and still plays like good ol' hl2. Same for 1187.

The Black Mesa mod uses the iron sights feature.

Iron sight adds to immersion. In some case old is better but iron sight is a definitive improvement of modern FPS. And they have degenerated on many other aspect.

Half life wouldn't seem like half life with iron sights.

No.

And also, just no.

No, never, no. NO. Just no.
And that's all that needs to be said. Never bring this up again, ever.

Jeez, at this point I wanna ask what's the problem you have with Iron Sights. There's a reason why many GPS have them, and it's because it's add more strategy to the gameplay. A process that started with the original HL btw.

The reason of why I asked about an iron sights mod is because:

a) They made one for the first Far Cry, which was one year older than HL2.

b) It WOULD fit well with the gameplay, as other Source based mods have already proved, and would add some pretty characteristics, like for example the laser aim on the combine machine gun.
