Finally some real FPS gaming goodness! I just downloaded it, but it looks to be one helluva mod for the Best Game Eva! :)

Take a look and grab it here! (http://www.fc-kartografen.de.vu/)

Looks like fun, once I get through the current pile of new games I have I'll look into this.

Looks cool. :)

Anybody knows of any FC mod which is not island-centric?? .... without those island-centric trees and environments??

Pretty much all FC mod I see is very much "I only see what the original developers made me see". Since the engine has some true capacity, why not use it to that level? :rolleyes:

Well I'd be interested if the Screenshots page didn't make it look like it was made by a couple of 12-year-olds.

I know. The plot is about stealing "Duum 3" source code? WTF. Who would waste their time playing that?

These guys have done an amazing job. It took me about five hours to get through the seven levels in this mod. It includes several cut scenes, 2 new vehicles and 4 new weapons, not including the X850 that you get towards the end.

The levels are very tough and include some good puzzles. This mod refers to the original Far Cry and pokes fun at a couple of scenes in it. You'll recognize them when you see them.

The voice acting is hilariously bad; this game doesn't take itself seriously. But it has a good story.

There are about 150 new textured objects in this mod, (besides the weapons and new characters) like this photocopier. Keep your eyes open for the rubber duck floating in the reactor core. :D

A sneak peek at the X850.

It's a fairly hefty download, about 392 megs for the mod and another 30 or so for the 1.1 patch. You should be patched to at least 1.3. The maps are HDR compiled, so you should get the 32/64 bit patch (don't use the 1.4 patch).

You can check out it here. (http://fc-kartografen.de.vu/) Have fun. :)

Tried it, these guys have talent. :D Sometimes the pace gets pretty fragmented, but then again, it is amazing for an user-made mod, and quite lengthy, too.

Also, what's the difference between Far Cry 32 and 64? I am on a 64-bit processor, but I use Windows XP 32, am I missing out? And should I get the 64-bit version of Windows XP? I heard it is slower for games without 64 bit support...

The AMD patch has support for HDR rendering, but you don't need a 64 bit OS or processor to use it (or even an AMD processor). I haven't noticed any performance difference with the patch but there is a noticeable visual improvement. You can get it here. (http://farcry.ubi.com/) (about halfway down the page).

I would patch the game normally from retail to 1.3 and then apply this patch. It includes 2 new new multiplayer maps as well.

Is this that weird mod where you have to steal "Doom 3" source code?

LOL, you always seem to remember about that one. I doubt it is that one. But I might be wrong. :D

I beat you to it Nutwrench! (http://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showthread.php?t=24561)

But I have had fun with this Mod. It is very high quality in design. Some of the humor is silly, but at least they tried to be funny. :) Be warned, this mod is hard! So I don't want to hear the weakies "Far-Crying" about it.

I just finished Matto3. One of the best single-player maps I've ever played.
