Basix Add-on: MP5 In The Pistol Slot
for Basix GFX-CS, Basix GFXm-CS, Basix Monstrosity CS

Basix Add-on: MP5 In The Pistol Slot
for CS Redux 0.97c

Basix Add-on: MP5 In The Pistol Slot
for GSC "Vanilla"


Install:
Simply extract the zipped file and put the gamedata folder into your main S.T.A.L.K.E.R. folder (usually X: -> Program Files -> Deep Silver -> S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Clear Sky). If you've never played any STALKER mods you'll have to adjust the one line below in fsgame.ltx (change false to true; use Notepad) to look like this:

$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata

Important!: When you extract the download, you'll see 3 zipped folders -- select the one you need (and you can delete other 2), extract the gamedata folder from it, and overwrite the gamedata folder in your main S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Clear Sky directory -- as usual, it is wise to back up your current gamedata folder before overwriting it

Requirements:
- for Basix installation: preinstalled one of these 3: Basix GFX-CS, Basix GFXm-CS, or Basix Monstrosity CS
- for Redux installation: preinstalled CS Redux 0.97 with the 0.97c update
- for GSC "Vanilla": preinstalled game itself with no other mods and fsgame.ltx in order (as described above)
- GSC patch 1.5.05, 1.5.06, 1.5.07 (1.5.04 very likely; tested with 1.5.07)

----------

WHAT DOES THIS MOD DO:

- the mod puts a custom MP5 submachine gun into the pistol slot
- at any time, you can replace it with a standard handgun
- simultaneous use of MP5 and detector
- driving with MP5 enabled for Basix Monstrosity CS alternate all.spawn
- custom MP5 features: holds 50 9x18 in mag, firing modes 1, 2, 3, and Auto, permanent suppressor, adjusted to each installation
- new reskined MP5 model that is visually different than other MP5s in the game
- you can get this gun only at the start as a part of the initial loadout (before the Swamps training mission) and it's not available at traders (so finish your current game before)
- still to do: inventory icon (PURKE62 ? :) . The current representation of the icon in the inventory is the MP5 body with no barrel


NOTE ON THE BASIX INSTALLATION:
None.


NOTE ON THE REDUX INSTALLATION:
To minimally impact the intent of the author of Redux mod, the pistol-slotted MP5 mimics the features of MP5N (that is already in the mod), but with somewhat reduced range and damage. No additional ammo (except what you get with the gun itself) is provided. You will still have to scrounge for your supplies and using the 1, 2, or 3 firing mode may save you some ammo.


NOTE ON THE "VANILLA" INSTALLATION:
The pistol-slotted MP5 function (features) is identical to Basix CS installation.


GENERAL NOTE:
Traders files have not been modified in any of these 3 installations. You can get the gun at the start of a new game. There are no upgrade paths, but with the extremely slow functioning deterioration you will probably never need it.


----------
Hope you enjoy!
