I would like to suggest that the M203 or M203A1 (on M4 or M16 rifle) grenade launcher have its leaf sight animated down when no 40mm magazine is loaded. When a 40mm magazine is loaded the sight is animated up.

This would allow a soldier to choose whether or not he wanted the leaf sight up based on if there was a 203 round loaded.

This is absolutely possible and has precedent within the game engine with no hokey workarounds.

Not possible without model-swapping afaik, which I guess they don't want to mess with.

Would like to see animated leaf sights instead of workarounds. :)
Imho BIS should first keep on bugfixing and performance tweaking ArmA II.

Um, when there's no magazine loaded:

M16 magazine is not visible.
Javelin CLU is not visible.

It's been done before plenty of times.

Dunno if it can be done for a secondary muzzle, but I guess it *might* be doable.

Ah I guess there's the secondary muzzle issue potentially.

And I want a working leaf scope like AA3. Mouse scroll wheel would be good for adjusting leaf scope distance.

Weapons can't be animated like that in ArmA2. It can't be done in any pretty way at all.
