Dagger Scopes - ACE
I like to play the game as a long range shooter, which means I stay 75% of the time looking though scopes. I´ve bought myself a wide screen and could not accept the fact that I had to keep using only a tinny part of its potential by looking through small scope lens all the time. It was a bit claustrophobic to me . In real life, besides the image on a scope be of a small FOV - Field Of View, in your brain the image is formed as something bigger. And the image itself can be a lot larger, should you employ proper eye relief. Don´t need to say you can always shoot with both eyes opened. All those factors have made me build some new scopes with a better screen fit. Because my FOV´s might be a little wider it does not mean they are cheating. A little wider scope for a very narrow FOV is still narrow enough. See for yourselves:
Then, I´ve tested the SWM mod and got amazed by their wide screen reticles. So, I thought I could do the same and ... here we are!
All scopes were made for extremely accurate range estimation and bullet drop compensations!
Inside this pack you will find a detailed manual explaining how to operate each one of the scopes and bringing detailed information about the magnification and ballistics math.
15 mods covered
More than 240 weapons
More than 13 k config lines
All included weapons made ACE compatible
All reticles are range estimation and bullet drop compensation accurate
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ
When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here
Dagger Scopes is the "mod of a mod". Besides it works with default BI´s weapons it brings a lot of other scopes made specially for all the mods listed below. So give them a try because they were considered worth to receive the goodies brought by this mod.
You don´t need to have all the mods that are compatible with my mod. So don´t get yourself bored by those “Addon X requires addon Y” messages on game start. If you don´t like those messages then delete the pbo´s made for the mods you are not using.

Refer to the included documentation for info how to use this.
1.At 30x magnification and above, the spotting scope and TAC50 scopes will distort the images.
2.You will need to manually zero the rifles with BDC´s in game because all rifles had to be zeroed at 0 meters in order to solve the point of impact problem. FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3.When you start using the sight adjustment on the “RH_mk14ebrsp_sd” you screw it all and, for an unknown reason, the shots start hitting your feet instead of leaving the barrel forward ahead. FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!
4.You need to turn ACE animated reticles off or they will be overlapped with my scopes.
5.If you are using Robalo´s ASR config for the UKF weapons then, you will not be able to use my scopes on the L115A3. You should disable ASR UKF if you wish to use my scopes.
