Firearms Changes Mod for Pillars of Eternity Version 3.06 (released 14/06/17) .

First of all this mod was inspired by:
Firearms Overhaul by DaNecron
Firearm Rebalancing by Elsograd
I agree with these mods that Firearms need tweaks and changes because they are un-balanced at higher difficulties. Dual wielding Pistols and Blunderbusses is just common sense. But sadly these mods are out of date and have not been updated for the latest versions of the game. So I decided to create my own and base it of these two mods.
Disclaimer: I did not use their assets when creating this mod. I started from scratch and made them myself.

All Firearm Changes

All firearms have lost the '-0.25' critical Modifier.

Pistol Changes
Now Dual Wields!
Removed Accuracy Penalty from -5 to 0.
Increased Range from 8m to 10m
Decreased Reload time from 5 to 4.
As DaNecron pointed out in his mod that the pistol 'Forgiveness' has a +20% attack speed modifier that doesn't actually do anything, therefore the reload speed for the Pistol Forgiveness is reduced from 4 to 3.2 (20% of 4 is 0.8, 4-0.8=3.2).

Blunderbuss Changes
Now Dual Wields!
Reduced Accuracy Penalty from -10 to -5.
Decreased Range from 8m to 6m.
Increased Projectile Count from 6 to 7.

Arquebus Changes
Increased DR Reduction from 6DR to 8DR.
Increased Range from 8m to 13m.
Removed Accuracy Penalty and added an Acxuracy bonus from -5 to +3.
Increased Interrupt from Weak(0.35s) to Average(0.5s).
Decreased Reload time from 6.8 to 6.5.

Known Issues
  • Firearms firing and reloading from your off-hand has a weird animation.
- This cant be helped as the devs did not create specific animations for dual wielding firearms.

I haven't thoroughly tested the higher level and rarer firearms but they should work fine. I also have no idea of how balanced these changes are, I just based these changes from the two previous mods and my own experience from playing. So please let me know if there is anything horribly broken (both in terms of bugs and balance). Feel free to leave suggestions as well.
