Weapon World Model Directory Paths Issue|
There's an ongoing thorn in our side regarding the directory paths of world models for weapons. Let's use the AK-74U as an example.
This is what the "visual" line in the config file looks like in vanilla.
visual = weapons\ak-74u\ak74u.ogf
And this is what it looks like when we change it to a new model in our new, neater directory structure.
visual = weapons\assaultrifle\aks74u\aks74u.ogf
This produces absolutely no change in the world model. It still appears as if it were the vanilla one.
However, if we place the new model in the vanilla directory's position (weapons\ak-74u\ak74u.ogf) then it appears ingame fine. If we change it to another vanilla model's directory (i.e. weapons\lr300\wpn_lr300.ogf) then that changes the ingame model to the appropriate model. But if we use our own directory then it doesn't appear to read it at all and instead reverts to vanilla. No errors or anything.
Is there a fix for this, or will we be forced to use the vanilla directories?
