GGE: Weapon Swap

In 1 collection by goobin
GGE Mods Collection
5 items
Replaces the default weapon switching behaviour so that the player puts their primary weapon on their chest.

There are a few known issues with this mod currently, including:

- Weird animation bugs when switching from launcher to primary weapon
- Occasional issues when interacting with and taking items from containers (vehicles, dead bodies, ammo boxes etc)
- Swapping weapon while reloading is not fully implemented so will lead to odd behaviour/lost magazines

I will try to fix these issues and others that arise over time, but even with the issues mentioned above, the mod should be in a relatively playable state and should work fine in multiplayer (as seen in demo video).

Like all of my GGE mods, this is a WIP and will be updated/changed over time.

Smooth ass weapon to side animations made by Farore :)

Absolutely massive thank you to BenjaminoBomb, Spirit-Actual and Iceman for helping me test this mod and providing valuable feedback.

Instead of primary I pull out binoculars.

there is a small problem, I ask for help. I don't know how to tilt the weapon to be more tactful, I also can't start walking with a weapon on the edge. Please help me what to click on to do this. And so the mod is good and I'm not watching about the problem with disappearing weapons yet

if you read the "Primary weapon disappears into the void" above in popular discussions, Sergeant Hades gave a thorough explanation as to why the mod accidentally deletes the primary weapon. I wouldn't know how to fix this. The only things I can (barely) mod is cfgAmmo and cfgMagazines for ballistics and behavior. Someone with strong understanding on game mechanics would have to fix this. It doesn't look like it would be easy...perhaps someone with animation modding knowlege? Instead of using an invisible rifle (prob ItemCore) perhaps a command where the current rifle is copied OR perhaps a straight "attach your_rifle to chest in this orientation" animation command?

Tested 11/1/2022
Still buggy
1. Primary weapon may disappear permanently
2. When swapping back to primary while reloading secondary weapon, magazines disappear

pvt TOAST did go through with it?

primary weapon dissapearing, especially in multiplayer still. In the pinned discussions since march of 2021. I think its safe to say we can copy this mod and fix it.

So this mod causes issues with how the AI-Heli Transport works. It's not a huge issue but for anyone using support modules or Zeus it's a huge issue.

I too spent time understanding why the AI ​​in helicopters did not want to pass the waypoints and it is this mod that is the pity

I don't know if this issue has been reported as of yet but I spent hours trying to figure out what mod was fucking up my insertion via helicopters. finally i figured it out it was GGE:core and Swap weapons. what a shame because putting your weapon on your back makes little to no sense in a combat situation.

Besides not liking you switching to binoculars, putting your weapon on your shoulder also becomes an issue. I'm trying to also figure out if Double Weapon is causing a conflict. Still, this is the fastest weapon swap mod I've found yet and finally gives utility to swapping to pistol rather than reloading the rifle.

Weapon disappears sometimes drops to the ground, other than that I'm loving it. Can't wait for it to be fixed completey
