Added two optional files with no sound and softer sound when switching to fanning and back. Choose only one, Install over main file.


The mod adds ability to switch between fanning and normal fire mode for any revolver. 

How To Use:
After you complete a small quest, you will be given the item "Toggle Fanning Mode" in your pipboy/aid section. Just favorite it on any favorite menu slot. Use it to switch between fanning and normal firing mode for revolvers seamlessly. See The Video For Demonstration:

Other Features:
  • You can fan any revolver from other mods which use .44 revolver animation keyword (anims44), like Remington 1858 e.t.c. V 1.6 adds support for pipe revolvers and any weapon which uses pipe revolver's animation keyword (animsHandmaderevolver).
  • The Speed of fanning depends on quality of your revolver receiver, better receiver = faster fanning. This mod even adds a custom receiver specially for fanning, with increased speed and accuracy.
  • Small quest and unique small bunker which players can use as home.
  • Custom made perk magazine with custom picture.
  • Other small surprises

Note From Author:
Please don't use console commands to spawn something from this mod before you complete the quest. It starts automatically, is very small and takes only 5 minutes to complete. The only reason I made a quest and a custom magazine for Fanning Ability is that I don't like when new stuff is added in game without some lore explanation if possible.

Another Note From Author:
The Fanning animation is from vanilla game and is 1st person only, so there are no 3rd person animations available at this moment. 

Future Plans:
-Add fanning for pipe revolvers Done in update V1.6
-Fanning in v.a.t.s while ability is active
-Make third person animations
If you have other ideas what can be done to this mod let me know

Use NMM or drag and drop files into fallout 4 directory

As fanning animations weren't made for pipe revolvers, while shooting them cylinder moves back. That's slightly visible but anyways. I can't fix that without directly editing animations.
