This Monster Hunter: World mod removes Scoutflies

Pest control

The monster-tracking Scoutflies in Monster Hunter: World can be too straightforward for their own good, but they serve a purpose, and as long as they aren’t yanking my camera around, I think they’re fine. If you’re a returning player who doesn’t need or want the assists, yep, there’s a mod for that.

You can probably envision a world without Scoutflies on your own, but here’s a visual aid from modder MHVuze. It’s a work-in-progress, so there are a few caveats. There’s a faint glow “when a monster or spot is set as a goal,” and the “camera neck snap is still there.” These are both known issues.

Here’s the install instructions and notes straight from MHVuze:

Tested and working with game build 151639.

Use at your own risk! Play in offline mode if you fear a ban or whatever.

Note: Untested with Elder Dragons since I’m not that far on PC yet. Let me know if it works. It should.

1. Move the nativePC folder from the downloaded archive to your install dir (i.e. D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Monster Hunter World)
2. Profit

As a quick aside, Capcom says it’s “working diligently on a patch to fix the connection errors.”
