M24 Ballistic Rifle
Added: 03/07/12 15:20:01
Description: TITLE: M24 Ballistic Rifle
AUTHOR: Doc. Caliban
ADDITIONAL CREDIT: Thale

GENERAL:

This mod creates a version of the M24 Sniper Rifle that fires a ballistic projectile
instead of being the usual "point and click" type of weapon. The rifle fires an
actual bullet that travels in an arc from the muzzle to the target. What this means
is that you have to compensate for range and flight time. (More on this in the

"TECHNIQUE" section.)

There are two versions of the rifle, the "M24 Ballistic" and the "M24 Ballistic VIS".
The second rifle fires a visible projectile that is large enough for you to see the
actual flight path and flight time of the bullet. This is useful in understanding
how the rifle works. There are no other differences between the two versions.

This mod includes duplicates of the original four sniper kits for each of the two
rifles:

M24 Ballistic + M9
M24 Ballistic + M9SD
M24 Ballistic + Extra Ammo
M24 Ballistic + Frags

M24 Ballistic VIS + M9
M24 Ballistic VIS + M9SD
M24 Ballistic VIS + Extra Ammo
M24 Ballistic VIS + Frags

This mode is useless without one of the "No Fog" mods that are available ... without
one of those, the visibility restrictions on the stock missions prevent you from
finding any long shots to make. I had created (but have since lost, sorry) custom missions
on the Airbase map that allow you to fire at distances of up to 1 kilometer.

TECHNIQUE:



The rifle is zeroed in (hits dead center) at 200m. This means that it hits a little

high at 100m, and starts shooting lower and lower at distances beyond 200m.



The reticule for the rifle has multiple horizontal hashes on the lower half of the

vertical crosshair. Each of these lines equates to ~100m of additional distance which

means that for a shot at 300m you would use the first mark below center, the second

mark below center for 400m, etc. I have not made a custom reticule that has an exact

set of bullet drop compensation marks, but the stock one does pretty well for the ranges

that you'll be able to shoot at.



Note: This scale is based on a horizontal screen resolution of between 1080 and 1200

with the scoped zoomed all the way in (16x). A lower resolution or different zoom

level will throw everything off.



For moving targets, you have to lead them based on their speed and the range of the

shot due to the fact that the bullet actually has to travel to the target, and at longer

ranges you will start to notice this more and more.





USE:



Simply copy the folder to your Mods folder and activate the mod via the Options menu.

Select one of the sniper kits that show either the "M24 Ballistic" or "M24 Ballistic VIS".



The idea of this mod, some of the pieces, etc., have come from the community

in general ... I simply tuned it to a specific trajectory and put it together for use in

my personal GR mod. Feel free to make whatever changes you want and to use this in your

own mods / kits / etc. Enjoy!





NOTES:



Since I have to use a projectile and define the rifle as a ballistic weapon type like a

grenade launcher or rocket launcher, the game shakes the screen as though an explosion

has happened if you shoot at something close. I've not found a way around that, though

as a sniper, you should probably never notice this effect.



Despite it being a projectile like a grenade or what have you, there is no explosion,

no blast radius, etc. If do not make a direct hit, you will not get a hit at all. When

you do make a hit, the guys go flying as though they've been blown up though, so that's

rather satisfying.



The idea of this mod is based on Thales' excellent LW15 499 rifle mod, including the

projectile model itself. I have adjusted the velocity and bullet weight to create a

trajectory which is very nearly identical to that of a 7.62x51mm NATO match-grade

cartridge being fired out of a 20" barrel.

Just wanted to ask this, do I need IT and DS aswell to use this mod?

Posted By Doc. Caliban on 05/07/12 16:21:09

@Blame:  You can use this mod without the expansion packs, yes.  Enjoy!

Posted By Doc. Caliban on 06/07/12 14:56:36

I'll be creating a custom reticule for this before too long, so that it has exacting bulet drip compensation marks for long range shooting.  Stay tuned! 

 I will also put together a quick guide showing you how to use the info in this mod to convert any rifle that you would like into a ballistic version.

Oh dear ... how about bullet DROP compensation as opposed to bullet DRIP.  Embarassed
