Sifu Melee Combat Mod (UEFA Brawling Style Pack #1) 1.2 (Control Update)


Basic Description:
What this mod is all about: (THIS IS NOT A SCRIPT)
This mod overhauls the visual aspect/functionality of melee fights allowing them to look more realistic and varied when compared to the original GTA V melee system.
It completely enhances the melee combat system adding in new melee weapon combos, counters, finishers, fighting animations, taunts, damage/reactions and much more. It makes melee fights longer lasting,
visually appealing and generally more fun. In this stability release, it uses available brawling styles from Ultimate Enhanced Fighting Animations mod version 6.5.5 and makes it compatible with GTA V Story Missions and gameplay.
INSTALLATION (HOW TO INSTALL): (read carefully please)

1. Open OpenIV, go to the "tools" tab, click on "Package Installer". Double click the OIV file "SifuCombatMod.OIV" and then click "install" and "install into mods folder".
Or/ Simply drag and drop the OIV file anywhere into Open IV, with edit mode activated, and install into mods folder.

2. Use this same path and install "New Melee Combat Sounds v1.5" to make the sounds MUCH more brutal! Stripped from the game Sleeping Dogs and upgraded version!!
3. Use this path to install "IV Unarmed Damage Effects" to have blood splatter effect to unarmed punches as seen in UEFA 6.5.2 showcase.

4.Do the same for the other OIV file titled "Remove MW Fears" IF YOU WANT TO REMOVE GENERIC PEDS RUNNING AWAY FROM DANGEROUS LOOKING MELEE WEAPONS...(machete, hatchet, dagger etc)

--------------NOTICE (following is not required for installation just general helpful stuff to know):-----------------------
I recommend you backup your update.rpf, common.rpf and x64c files before installing this mod. They are hefty files so be aware of your computer space, but this will help make sure you can revert quickly to previously edited files without reverting back to vanilla via uninstall package.

This mod changes your gameconfig automatically to have the one necessary for this mod and uninstaller will add vanilla config. (After joining the discord community below, go to gameconfig-manual-edits) to manually edit your existing gameconfig if you desire to keep your previous config. (gameconfig contained in this mod was built from the ground up from limitless vehicles with author permission) or go to mod-fixes channel of our discord community to install updated test files. (If provided)

Please read text document "4.How to assign fighting styles to models" it has a video tutorial on how to assign styles to Base game peds. You can also Join my discord and go to tutorials section to find a tutorial on switching addon ped styles. ;D
