Some of these mods can affect game balance by differing from vanilla attack speed and reload speed values. They might also be distracting or look strange at high agility and/or with the Rapid Reload perk. If you encounter misaligned ironsights, such as with Hit's Anims Season 1, you can align them with ISControl Enabler by following the steps on the Nexus page.
REQUIRED for the following animations - automatically creates ##ISControl nodes for weapons with sighting nodes.

NV Compatibility Skeleton

You may encounter another mod which lists Compatibility Skeleton as a requirement. Should you install such a mod, you must drag Compatibility Skeleton below that mod in MO2's left pane (to overwrite).
