This is a wooden bat add on that i converted (i upped the texture to 4k and added better normal maps), the original uploader on gta4mods is Nobeus.
The bat actually fits better in the hands (e.g you wont see the fingers going into the bat) when you replace the normal bat.
Special thanks to yeahhmonkey ONCE AGAIN for the great Add on base he made i wouldn’t of been able to do this as an add on without it!
Read the README.txt in the archive it will tell you all you need to know to be able to install this.
Drop the files that are inside the “replace” folder here:
