Realistic FLIR Thermal Scope - 60Hz, 320*240px and Range 1.1

The ingame FLIR RS32 does not perform like the real thing. Ingame it works at 21Hz, 172*129px of resolution and a limited range of less than 300m. This mod makes the FLIR behave like it should, at 60Hz, 320*240px of resolution and much more range.

Works in 3.5.6, 3.5.5 and 3.5.4. Other versions may work but are not tested.

FLIR RS-32 2.25-9x 35mm 60Hz thermal riflescope

That is the ingame name for the FLIR... 60Hz... it's right in the name... Yet ingame the scope works at only 21Hz. And not only that, it also has a horribly low resolution of 172*129px and a limited range of less than 300m. I like to play SPTarkov with realism mods, and the one thing i was missing was a mod that would fix this issue with the FLIR. There are a few mods that make completely clear thermals with unlimited range and refresh rate, but that is not realistic either, so I tried to make it myself and here we are.

The real life FLIR RS32 works at 60Hz and with a 320*240px screen, and it has a lot more range. This is what this mod changes.

Left is the vanilla FLIR, notice the low resolution and limited range. Right is my mod, with correct resolution, refresh rate and range (lighthouse island visible).

Again, left is vanilla, right is modded.

Installation: drop in user/mods folder

Compatibility: make sure it loads after other mods that modify thermals if you want the changes to apply

This mod would not have been possible without the previous work of TEOA where he corrected the range of thermal scopes, so props to him: Clear Thermal Sights

  • Version 1.1

    Same as 1.0 but now works with 3.5.6 without the version warning.

    Also works in 3.5.5 but it displays a version warning.

  • Version 1.0

    Works in 3.5.5.

    Also works in 3.5.6 but it displays a version warning.

  • banger mod, always had a problem with the false advertising on the flir scope, now this thing competes with the REAP-IR as it should. Trijicon plebs eat your hearts out hahaha.

  • Really nice to see people finding use for things I made, and thank you for the credit!

  • How did you go about increasing the range of the thermal scope? It's fantastic bugcatrainbowbugcatheadbumping

    • That's the work of TEOA from his previous mod: Clear Thermal Sights

      That mod removed the pixelation and had unlimited refresh rate tho, so it was not realistic.

    • I Use that mod but only with the T12-W and REAP-IR. I already change a lot of optics in original game folder. But I couldn't change the range. That's awesome. How you did that? aquadesperate

    • Might be the UInt8 ZeroedUnsharpRadius": 0, but i'm not sure, TEOA is the one who accomplished it.

  • Nice. Now I have something to look forward to when I wake up tomorrow!

  • Works on 3.5.6, I wasn't sure if I would be able to tell I started with the mod and the scope is so smooth, removed it and oh my god the default refresh rate is really bad. Thanks for the mod.

  • This is Ultra Realistic!

    I have tried this scope ones in real life and it looks very good whit this mod, also works on 3.54
