In the mod I'm developing, I have a "melee" weapon that launches a spray of projectiles (think simulated concentration spell from skyrim vis-a-vis ballistic fist from FNV). Everything works wonderfully, except that because it's classified as a melee weapon, VATS only works within melee range. I've tried altering "reach" and "range" in the form, but neither have worked. I looked into Perk Entries, but the only relevant entries I saw for VATS were hit chance and Blitz, but I don't want to "teleport" in VATS as with Blitz, I want to stay where I am, like when shooting a gun.
Is there a way to modify the melee VATS range without "teleporting" into VATS melee range? (Preferably a method that can be restricted with a keyword so as not to affect vanilla melee)
