If you need to contact me, you can do so on homebrew.

Potatoes' Soup is a bunch of mixed ingredients to add Vanilla+ features and little QOL additions to H3VR!

Full list of additions/changes

Base Game Patches
  • The size of a laser's red dot is no longer dependant on the distance between the dot and the gun, but on the distance between the dot and the player. (In the base game, the laser pointer being very far away will cause the dot to be very big if you are near the dot.)
  • Corrects the Madsen LAR and Panzerschreck sizes to be correct (Not very noticable on the Panzerschreck, but very much so for Madsen. Panzerschreck changed from a bore size of 95mm to 88mm, Madsen sized down from 1230mm to 1080mm)
  • BreakActionWeapons no longer break from adding a suppressor
Bolt Bracing
  • Holding the bolt back on a gun and letting go of the foregrip and grip while shouldering the gun will keep it in place, freeing up one hand while leaving the bolt open
  • Very useful for locking a bolt back on a gun like the SKS to fill it up
  • Works on Bolt Action rifles, Closed Bolt guns, and handguns which have a stock
  • Does not work with charging handles
  • Disables Anton's bolt locking feature
Bullet Thumbing
  • Holding down the touchpad while racking the slide of a gun will "thumb" the bullet in the chamber if it is not fired, inserting it back into the magazine instead of ejecting it.
  • Works with Closed Bolt guns, Bolt Action guns and handguns
  • Does not work if using a charging handle
Clear Stabilization
  • Two-hand stabilizing a gun will now not display your offhand
  • Can be disabled in the config
  • Distance before hiding offhand can be changed in the config
Double Action Revolver Decocking
  • Holding down the touchpad while pulling the trigger on a cocked double action will now decock the revolver
Bolt Action Manipulation
  • Up on the touchpad now cocks the hammer if it is decocked
Easy Attaching
  • Attachments will now phase through held guns, making it easier to attach attachments
  • Can be disabled in the config
Better Panels
  • Options panel now spawn locked in place
Palm Racking
  • Holding grip on your empty hand then hovering over a bolt will automatically grab the bolt. This allows you to hold grip then swipe over a bolt and quickly rack it.
  • Works on closed bolt guns, open bolt guns, and bolt action guns
Ejector Hitting
  • Revolver ejector can now be slapped (swipe hand over, similar to MP5 handle) to eject rounds
Single Action Counter-Clockwise Rotation
  • Single action revolver cylinders can be rotated counter-clockwise with up on the touchpad
Better Stabilization
  • Two-hand stabilization now works even when holding another item in the other hand
Akimbo Reloading
  • If you are holding two pistols or revolvers in your hands, you can simply hover them over magazines in your quickbelt to automatically load them!
  • (Revolver akimbo loading does not work with individual rounds- only speedloaders.)
  • Can be enabled/disabled in config
  • This reloading style can be enabled when only holding one handgun in the config (off by default)



[v6.2.1] - 2023-09-16


  • Fixed magazines being able to be quickgrabbed while loaded in a gun, causing problems
  • Fixed spawn spam when attempting to reload an akimbo revolver with an incompatible speedloader

[v6.2.0] - 2023-09-16


  • Akimbo reloading now applies to revolvers


  • Quickgrabbing now applies to magazines and speedloaders (GitHub Issue #5)


  • QuickGrabbing foregrips can no longer steal your hands. (GitHub Issue #12)
  • QuickGrabbing is now more reliable; more unlikely to cause issues. (Compared to regular grabbing.)
  • QuickGrabbing foregrips now properly hold the gun if you were not already holding the grip.
  • QuickGrabbing now makes the normal grab buzz sound when grabbing objects normally.

Full Changelog: https://github.com/potatoes1286/Soup/compare/6.1.0...6.2.0

[v6.1.0] - 2023-05-16

It wouldn't be a Potatoes release if it wasn't released past midnight.


  • Config name shuffling occurred- your one hand akimbo setting may be reset!
  • Akimbo reload now enabled when second hand is occupied- not only when both hands are holding handguns, specifically! This allows more flexibility, such as pistol in one hand and melee/utility in the other.
  • New setting added: Enable Akimbo Reloading With All Weapons. Enables Akimbo reloading for all closed bolt and open bolt weapons. Understandably, this setting has been pushed to the "Questionable Settings" category (Thanks to the overmind for the suggestion!)


  • Stripper clips no longer are sensitive to falling out of your hand- More elaboration, some bit of code was running that I swear had a reason to exist but never actually did anything, and started causing problems, so now it's gone. (GitHub Issue #28)
  • Bolt bracing now works on weapons with AK style safeties. Previously, when an AK was on safe it could not bolt brace.

[v6.0.2] - 2023-02-25

Full Changelog: https://github.com/potatoes1286/Soup/compare/6.0.1...6.0.2

[v6.0.1] - 2023-02-22


  • Mags can now be kicked properly when being bolt braced! It was not impossible to do this before, but it was exceptionally hard. (GitHub Issue #25)
  • Some guns will now stop spamming console and work with Akimbo. Fix was supposed to be pushed in v6.0.0, but was lost along the way. (GitHub Issue #24)

Full Changelog: https://github.com/potatoes1286/Soup/compare/6.0.0...6.0.1

[v6.0.0] - 2023-02-04 - AKIMBO TIME


  • Akimbo-style reloading! To Akimbo reload, simply hold two pistols, then hover the pistols over a magazine in your quickbelt. It will automatically load the mag!
  • Akimbo-style reloading can be enabled/disabled in the config (on by default)
  • Akimbo-style reloading can be enabled/disabled when only holding one pistol (off by default)
