SCK Viewmodel Element Will not change

Hello,
I am currently tweaking a weapon that utilizes SCK,

What I am trying to accomplish is a visible chain of ammunition gradually turning invisible as the ammunition inside the magazine depletes.

I have read that you are able to alter both V and W elements on the fly within the code so this should be easy to do.

But no matter how I write it, I can not get any element to change within any function.

The only way I have been able to change the view element was by changing the constant mag02 itself.

Is there something I am doing wrong?

You should be able to change it by doing

self.VElements["Magazine02"].color.a = <value>

That did the trick,
Thank you!
