Jack Carver is cursing the day he ever came to this island. A week ago Valerie, a brash newspaper reporter, offered him an incredible sum of cash to sail her to this unspoiled paradise; but shortly after docking he was greeted by artillery fire from a mysterious militia group swarming over the island. With his boat destroyed, his money gone, and Valerie suddenly missing, Jack now finds himself facing an army of mercenaries amidst the wilds of the island with nothing but a gun and his wits to help him survive. And the further he pushes into the lush jungle canopy, the stranger things become...

About Crylo with 3 comments by Janzu118 on Jul 12th, 2015

Ive been away for some good time, defense force ended about a month ago so i was taking it easy.

Now about what is going on with the mod Crylo, It exploded.

Nah, but i have made some progress with it, got new characters in like civilians and battle civilians referred as "Rebels" in the future, before i start to talk about everything else i will start with the lore for Rebels.

The United Rebel Front were a complex, well-organized faction of Humans devoted to complete liberation from the influence of the Unified Earth Government and the United Nations Space Command. The organization is led by three Generals, one of whom was General Howard Graves before his death in 2531.*Source wiki*

Like you can read the rebels fought to get free from UNSC and still are since they think UNSC and ONI are suppressing people. The main idea behind them was to give an different enemy to fight in halo games, since in fps Halo games you couldn't play against rebels (mods not included) and they make a good enemy since in mid part player must choose who will he fight humanity or flood/covenant. The flood will make its comeback and so will covenant, or so i hope so since it needs a lot of work to get an elite nicely running around guns blazing and same with other characters from Halo series. That's why i started with Rebels, since i could just slap basic rigging on them and don't need to do animation work one em, only texture it nicely and rig it.

Now about level designs, personally i like to go huge, make open area maps like on snow or something:

But the problem with those are the AI since it will probably drip into the first tree and cant to anything, so i moved indoors.

FarCry0021

Since in there i can choose where will the AI go and what should it protect and all that kind of not fun for the level designer stuff...I started to like the dark area from Quake 4 since it was dark and scary and no vision meant you don't know when will the enemy strike or how. There is a lot do to like always story is only in my head right now so i don't even know how many levels will there be, but i designed the levels into 3 arks: 1 st is humans or Rebels, 2nd is Flood, 3rd is rebels, flood, covenant and a special enemy.

Basically s*** is going to hit the fan at some point and everything is screwed and player must come through it.

About AI, AI's are ridiculously powerful right now since player had armor abilities and most of AI's don't so i made an equal footing like this but AI is still dumb as hell what is kinda worrying, they might have more health and good weapons but not the knowledge to do anything with it. In the weapons department i'm still experimenting with some stuff and with other im trying to figure out some stuff what's wrong with em and squash some bugs with some weapons like concussion rifle and some others, since if i cant get them fixed, i wont include broken assets into the final mod. Talking about assets, i personally hate doing everything from scratch so i will reuse a lot of Far Cry original assets including walls, vehicles and so on.

Without further ado here is the video with my own comments, you will see some action in a new level as well some nasty bugs, so enjoy some eyecandy and ill post another news in next week or so.

Half-Life was released more than 20 years ago. Far Cry was released 2004. Half-Life 2 was released later in 2004.

Ok, Guys arguing about how crysis sucks or not, CRYSIS UN-MODIFIED SUCKS! They put out the SDK editor with it so you can mod it to your standards, that's why Far Cry 2 sucks so much ***, It does not have SDK. Far Cry 1 and Crysis do, they kick *** because of that.

Man, you could read The Iliad while installing this if you have a lower end system. Great game though, but freakin hard!

bout that argument: Id go for both farcry and crysis for the games themselves. They are both fun games, I mean farcry would win in my book though cause crysis was made by a company under the umbrella of EA, and I would bomb EAs HQ if I wouldnt get caught, and nobody would get hurt, or any surrounding buildings get damaged...

I liked Crysis, but i liked Far Cry waaaaay more
i have the pc for it and believe me they mostly only cared about the graphics.
the gameplay is good, but not great

Far Cry is the best i have ever played since 2004

BTW why are there FC instincts screenshots ?

Well Crysis may be innovative and well done, but Far Cry paved its path... Very deep :D. But the Tridgens ARE really really annnoying.

Far Cry is definitely a great game. I can say that its a real masterpiece of Crytek which has everything - the best ever seen graphics by that time, interesting and challenging gameplay, and of course its story. You feel yourself like in a tropical paradise which hides something terrible inside. The game is quite long in compare with other FPS games, and it consists of 20 Single player levels and 8 multiplayer maps. Finally I just want to add that the only thing I dislike is a game difficulty. IF…
