Pressing zoom in (toggle) with sniper weapons/ACOG/PSO, all weapons with
a optics texture ( modelOptics = "path\to\model.p3d"; ) zooms in only while
holding the button and returns to non zoom after that.

Like for all weapons without a texture optic ( modelOptics = "-"; ) they
should also permanently zoom in when pressing zoom in (toggle).

  1. editor
  2. player as infantry with m16a2 standard (soldier)
  3. launch
  4. press zoom in (toggle) once
  5. observe zoom in to be permanent
  6. player as infantry with m16acog or m24 (recon/sniper)
  7. launch
  8. press zoom in (toggle) once
  9. observe zoom to return to standard view after ending the key press

In short the toggle mode is meant to switch between no zoom and zoom
by a single key press, in addition to the standard zoom in key action
that needs permanent pressing of that key action.

I think as soon as you let go of the zoom key it should stay at the zoom level for ALL zoomable optics, infantry and vehicles.
