Mod/Asset Request?

Hey Buzzil, I was wondering if you could give me some pointers to help me get a compatibility patch for a unit of mine's custom MG. I would appreciate any help!

So I love this mod, but is there a way to make it so that people can't run around when the tripod is attached to a machine gun that they are carrying? It would be awesome to have a setting to force walking when the tripod was attached if thats possible.

Hey Buzzil. As a long time machine gunner, i love this mod heaps!
I was wondering if there was any chance you could make this work using ace and a second person? say you have a MG assistant like IRL and they interact on your MG and deploy the tripod, similar to the linking belts and swapping barrels in ace. This is how they would do it IRL.

I can confirm the conflict wit Animated Recoil coefficient changer mod. When you deploy the bipod, the Hand gesture activated, then fire the first round, Hand gesture will be back to vanilla status.

Possible patch for the "Animated Recoil coefficient changer" mod? Essentially, the recoil mod adds more realistic recoil in the game, but overwrites this mod to the point of where it does not function as it should.

I'll take a look into, but can't imagine what may went wrong, as there were no signifcant updates recently. What modlist do you use?

Sure, complete pack is available on github in releases section.

Hey mate, would you mind if we packed this into an auxillary mod for our unit? Full credit and links would be included

I have tried to put these in a backpack and that does not work, Also you can not put into a vehicle or pull these from vehicle inventory . The sniper tripod all that functionality works but not with the MG variants on the appropriate weapon systems .

I'm trying to adjust the tripod deploy time, but I can't find where it is set. Can you please point me to the file location where it is defined? Thanks!
