My first request!

Well, I've been wondering for a long time if there had ever been any attempts at a model using an iron-sight like system. After seeing Disciples sig, it brought it to my mind and while I always thought of it, I never thought of it HERE.

Well, that time has come today! So, I ask, has there been any model out there that makes you look down the ironsights of the gun, or would it be too bulky and block too much of the screen? I think it would be an awesome idea to try, but I have no clue at all at what goes on behind the scenes of this kind of stuff.

IronSights were always up so you had to run around looking at the ground.
But, the worst part is that the HL engine makes your gun move up and down as you look up and down, so it was not ALWAYS pointing in the center. Say you are up in a tower looking down on the enemy, your sights would not be in the center so you had to adjust you shots to accommodate for the engine.

I don't get to play many games, DOD is pretty much it, but, my brother was on the promotions team for the "America's Army" game when it first came out (did the web site etc) so I gave that a try. The way it does IronSights is pretty good, it is way more intigrated into the engine to make it work though.

Thanks for the replies and the help guys! I haven't gotten to try them out just yet, but I understand what's gonna happen so it kinda turns me off of it a little bit.

I play different mods for HL, Hostile Intent for example uses the iron sight system, but it stinks because you can ONLY FIRE through iron sights. There is also a mod in production (Been in production mind you) called MoveIn, that is going to incoorporate the iron sights much like how AA has it now. (Great game by the way.)

ANYWAY, I'll reply up again after I try them out, and thanks once again for all the help.
