I'm aware that we want to keep the mod list as small as reasonably possible, but we already have some cosmetic mods like ACRE animations so I don't think it's out of the line to suggest some muh immershion mods:
>TACTICAL POSITION READYhttps://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1363663797
It allows you to raise or lower your weapon and it also automatically forces the character to lower/raise his weapon next to walls and obstacles.
The animations look decent and I think it would make CQB a little bit more interesting.
More satisfying recoil when shooting static weapons and visual cues for nearby explosions and when people shoot next to you, I think it goes well with ACE to make shooting feel more impactful.
*the seizure after every shot option ("Force") should be turned off
This mod was made specifically for the ACE trenches/fighting position, it just make them blend in better with the environment and look less like an eyesore, maybe it will get us to use them more often when necessary.
I don't think any of these mods should change the gameplay too much to turn people off and they all have really small filesizes (15mb at most) as well.
