ISS gore system is great, although the dismemberment doesn’t happen as often as i and other people would want to. Thankfully i have found a way to change that.
Before we start:
You might want to use Notepad++, its free and will help you see if you’re messing with the config files the right way or nah
The gore commands i have found
A multiplier for weapons and explosion damage, setting these to higher values will make limbs more easily dismembered.
|0||No dismemberment, might as well turn it off.|
|1.5-2||No noticeable changes although any value pass this point will cause explosions to insta gib.|
|5||Rifles will be able to take off limbs in 2-4 shoots, Pistols will dismember in 2-5 shoots.|
|10||Rifles will take off any limb with 2 shoots, Pistols will dismember in 1-4 bullets.|
|15||Any weapon (except melee) will be able to dismember in 1-3 shoots.|
|20+||1 hit gib|
The amount of physical “push” that will be applied on the ragdoll, the higher the value, the more “push” will be applyed on the ragdoll from the direction it got hit before dying.
|0||Normal weak push, nothing from explosions.|
|1||Almost unoticeable push.|
|5||Ragdolls will respond to bullets and fall back more frequently, ragdolls will fly from explosions.|
|10||mildly hard pushes even by the smaller callibers, ragdolls will catapult in the air from explosions|
|50+||5 metters plus from the smaller callibers, to the moon we go|
Not sure, but it seems to dictate how easily limbs will dismember with physical damage, like falling or getting tossed around.
Any value change seems to break it making ragdolls limbs insta gib if they touch the ground
No clue honestly
Doesn’t seem to change anything
I would recommend messing around with these commands ingame first, you can simply change its value and kill somebody to see what the command does
There are some more that you can access via the console ingame wich i dont think are important (mainly cuz i honestly did not bother with testing what they did) they all start with “r.Dismemberment” in case you want to see them for yourself.
The config file
After deciding wich configurations seem fit for you, its time to put them in your config folder
Fistly, find the directory of your iss config files, it should be at
Then look for the file named “Engine.ini” and open it
Look for a category named “[SystemSettings]”, if you dont find it, simply write it down
it should look like this:
Then simply add your commands with the values you want like “command=value”
There we go!
Sadly i dont know what most commands do, but even then it didnt show any diference with values so it hopefully wont be a big missout, if anyone knows what they do, just tell me and ill update this guide.
