    @State_of_Mind is there a way to Modify The SWAT so that they don't do Drive By's with the Carbine Rifles and Shotguns so that they only use Pistols?.

    is the FoV option going to be updated soon? this mod is great, but ADS is very awkward when you're using the game's default FoV.

    How can I modify the amount of ammo I can carry. It seriously bugs me, even though it's supposed to be realistic it's not enough, and especially when my dad plays it (he's old and has reflexes of a turtle) and he can't aim good, his ammo just runs out and he loses missions...pls halp ._.

    @State_of_Mind Curious, does this mod allow for DLC weapons like the heavy revolver to be permanently placed in our weapon wheels? Currently, they get automatically removed when you change characters or reload a save.

    @Jax765 I've been working on it for awhile but so far no luck.
    @Drakushoru go into weapons.meta and find <Item type="CAmmoInfo"> then search for the weapon class and change the ammunition <AmmoMax100 value=" " change the number inside the "
    @satrnv Once I have the time i'll update it.

    This mod is really great, especially the visible FPS recoil but there are times when the recoil tends to get a bit too much shaky and as many other people have stated; the reserve ammo is somewhat problematic since its value is too little (for me). Still, this mod does what it's supposed to do and does a really great job at it. 4/5

    @State_of_Mind Is there a way that I could get rid of the scope sway for both the Heavy Sniper and Sniper Rifle?

    This mod goes great w/ https://www.gta5-mods.com/misc/naturalmotion-euphoria-oiv-kaai210-bravercoolio-jedijosh920, Combine those with a good realistic wound mod, shooting is more entertaining than it ever was. also appreciate the OIV for weapons compared to most mods.

    I reverted to clean install, started OIV and installed the packages in the correct order. Then I got err_gen_invalid crash on start. Any clue what I botched up?

    Wasn't really a fan of this mod. More recoil and lesser damage was all i noticed. Interesting ideas here though.
