PostSubject: Changing Scope crosshairs on Rifle mods   Sun Aug 23, 2015 8:15 pm

Hiya, I am hoping someone can give me a hand..I've tried to work out how to do this, but I've reached a dead end.  I have 2 different sniper rifles: http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/42619/?

and another type of sniper rifle mod, however they both use pretty generic cross hair, one is the standard red mil dot, and the other is just a black cross hair.  I wanted to use a couple of the sights from this mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/35908/?

That mod only replaces the vanilla sniper/varmint rifle scopes, but I thought to take the textures,(the mod only contains textures), and replace the textures of the rifle mod cross hairs.  I cannot find any textures for either rifle that are cross hairs and trying it through geck for either rifle only has a .nif.  What am I missing?

Thank you for any help!

Moved from Modding tutorials & Help to Troubleshooting.

Please be more careful next time where you post topics. Thanks.

Cant you just find the crosshair locations from the rifles in your data folder and rename the crosshair file you want to use to them and then replace them ? Thats what would do

I tried that..for instance the PSG-1 mod, (1st mod link in OP), I went into the data\texture folder, there are 2 scope textures, one is the actual scope, the 1st/3rd person view on the weapon and the the other is a kind of fuzzy blue ball. I changed the name of the original texture, and the name of the one that I wanted to the original, but when I went in game, it was the same black cross hair. Would you be willing to take a look at it?

Find the scope reticle model included in the scope reticle mod and rename the file to "mildotscope," then extract it and overwrite to:

"meshes/interface/hud"

And then all weapons using the mildot scope reticle should use the modded one.

Hope this helps Smile

The red mildot texture you mentioned is in data/textures/weapons/scope, and if you replace it with any scope texture you want from the scope replacer mod, by renaming that texture to mildot_o.dds, any rifle using the default red mildot will now use whatever scope you chose. Hope that makes sense.

Thank you for the reply Funky! Yes that does make sense, however I am not looking to replace the vanilla game scopes, I looking to replace the scopes of two different sniper rifle mods. I cannot find any crosshair texture for either sniper rifle I'm looking to change. I even opened them up in nif and checked the tsnips to follow the file path for what I have to assume would be the cross hair texture, I get a 'cannot be found' msg.

To change the cross hair texture for a sniper rifle you would have to do it through GECK not by editing the .nif. If I remember correctly, all you have to do in GECK is change the texture path and it should give you the desired result.
