SWAT 4 reticle mod

This small mod alters the SWAT 4 reticle in both singleplayer and multiplayer. The various Weapons and equipment in the game have various reticles ranging from the weapons having a center dot with spread indicators to tools having a center dot inside a circle. This mod removes all reticle parts except the dot and makes this dot larger. I would have removed the reticle completely if the game had an aim-down-site function.

The reticle mod will work with:
-SWAT 4: The Stetchkov Syndicate
-many SWAT 4 Mods eg. Sheriff's Special Forces (SSF) Realism Mod

Thanks to the following!

I was recommended this game for its coop play by TOG Fox who is, like me, a cooperative gameplay fan. I gave it a bit of a test run last night and I like it very much. Very intense.

So, I've added this game on my 'to do' list. Coop and the various other multiplayer modes will be looked at. To be more specific, I'll be running the Sheriff's Special Forces (SSF) Realism Mod v3.1 which is for the The Stetchkov Syndicate expansion pack.

I'm new to this game but here's some basic info.

Be part of a squad and use authentic weaponry and tactics in various SWAT scenarios.

In the singleplayer you lead. In multiplayer it's team based SWAT v suspects. In the multiplayer coop you can lead or be a part of a squad versus suspects.
