No Random Gun Shell Ejection Direction
This mod was made with FO4Edit v3.1.3. Thanks to Elminster and the FO4Edit team. Please watch the video for a good demo of what the mod does.
When firing a weapon in game, I felt like the random ejection rate is way too high, which the shell casings clipping through the weapon model quite often. So I set it much lower, almost so that the random ejection direction is close to 0 (0.05 to be exact, down from 0.45). So there is a little bit of randomness, but not a lot like in the vanilla game.
I also set the lifetime of the spent casings to last 2 minutes long on the ground.
If you use Shell Rain – load my mod first if you want to have Shell Rains 10 minute fGunShellLifetime. Otherwise, load my mod after Shell Rain to have a 2 minute fGunShellLifetime.
This isn’t really a super realistic mod (I’ve shot many guns before – no autos though), so perhaps I will upload a version with a greater shell ejection direction and other tweaks later, but of course less than vanilla Fallout 4. Mainly this is just a personal preference mod I thought I would share.
Use NMM or install manually.
Simply delete the .esp and you should be good to go
Thanks to the Shell Rain mod by pauderek for the longer shell lifetime. I felt like 10minutes is way too much, so instead I use two minutes.
