    @HeySlickThatsMe I have already modified them, I will be releasing in about a month to finalize all the changes. Sorry for such a long absence I have been very busy. But I have a new computer, my studies are almost done. So I will be working on this game much more :)

    hmm I find two global.oxt files in "New Weapons Names" folder, one in the fikder and one in the "DLC" folder, do I install both??

    @xxx78 The mod works well with CPRE, just install my mod first then his. I am not sure if Realistic gun sounds would conflict, does it have a weapons.meta? If so, use mine instead.
    Install both for the weapon names.

    A mod nicely done ! I'm using it with Gang and turf mod and it's really challenging. But I would like to remove the limit of ammo. Sometimes I had to fight a lot (250 ennemies with great weapons and skills) and it could be really annoying to go back to the ammunition in the middle of the battle.
    Could you please tell me what is the file which modify the ammo storage on the character ? (And the file in case it's not easy to guess)
    Thank you :)

    Search <Item type="CAmmoInfo">
    Under it you will find the ammo limit for each weapon class.
    For example, under <Name>AMMO_PISTOL</Name>
    there is <AmmoMax value="36" />
    <AmmoMax50 value="60" />
    <AmmoMax100 value="100" />
    The max 50 and max 100 refer to the shooting skill level. So if you want to carry 9999 at the max level change
    <AmmoMax100 value="100" /> to <AmmoMax100 value="9999" />

    5* for your support too ! That's perfect thank you !!
    That's a smart idea to link the shooting level with also the ammo quantity !
    Cheers bro and keep up your good work!
