About this mod

An overall update to the weight's list of every consumable, callers and scents in the game.
There will be future updates to weapons, sights and portable devices.

Permissions and credits
Do you prefer to always be prepared to whatever you would encounter in the wilds? Do you love to have every kind of callers and scents hanging around just for the right occasion? Do you despise the fact that a glorified child's toy weights half a kilogram? So this mod was made for you.

This is a simple mod that changes the weight value of all the callers, scents and consumables in the game so they are close to what they would weight in real life. I searched every item that I could, and estimated the weight of other based on their materials.
You can see what changed in the "Change Log.txt".

- Download the file;
- Go to your Steam games library;
- Right click on "theHunter: Call Of The Wild" and choose "Properties";
- Press "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS" right in the "General" tab;
- Paste the line bellow (with the dot in the end and the slash in the beggining):
    --vfs-fs dropzone --vfs-archive patch_win64 --vfs-archive archives_win64 --vfs-archive dlc_win64 --vfs-fs.
- After making this change, go to the tab "Local Files";
- Open the file you downloaded and unzip the "dropzone" folder right in the folder that opened for you (Usually, this will be the one: Steam\steamapps\common\theHunterCotW)
- Open your game and enjoy a weightless hunt!

Disclaimer: This is my first mod I ever created to a game. I love this game with passion, but I can see thousands of ways I can tweak it to make it better, so I will try to come with new ideas and mods along the way. For this mod, I would highly appreciate if someone with real life hunting experience could help me with the weight of weapons and sights, that's my next objective.
I'll try to leave it updated, even tough I don't think the devs will change how the game read the weight of items. If you notice any discrepancy, just let me know.
There's no other mod that changes this file, for now, but if you download any other mod that changes the file "dropzone\settings\hp_settings\equipment_data.bin", this one won't work.

--- If you liked this mod and you want to thank me anyway, I would love to see anyone of you guys in my stream. Be sure to check it out and follow it! :D Haotran's Humble Twitch ---
