This is my real passion, almost all FPS games and modding them until they are precisely what I want. Somedays being a super-soldier in Crysis meets my fancy, other days FarCry 2, I play all the Call of Duty games made for PC and love every minute of it! However between college, a girlfriend, a jeep, an off-road buggy, a small plane, and family I often do not have time to embrace this passion. ***If you are here for information on The Tactical Expansion Mod for Crysis, I am not the original developer, I had no part in it what-so-ever. I am merely a user with experience in the sandbox and too much time behind a computer screen, I can help with a lot of issues, but I cannot help with clipping, particles, dynamic lighting, shaders, or any texture issues. I can help you find things in game, customize your experience and I can assist with most glitches.***

I must jump on the bandwagon with my fellow players, no dedicated server, no cheater prevention, and no availability for modification or map building right out of the box! BOOOO! It has been some time now and have finally seen the emergence of modifications from relatively few sources, some basic small gameplay/ weapon changes have been amusing, but no maps or zero-gravity that made call of duty 1 and 2 so much fun. Don't get me wrong I love the game and it is fun. But I feel as though Infinity Ward has abandoned us modders and competitive gamers :-(

Hello, I'm the guy having problems with Crytools and tactical expansion. I was using a outdated version of crytools before and it would give me a exact error message of it but I switched to the newest version of Crytools and it doesn't give me the error message, it just trys to start it up and than crash. I honestly couldn't give a **** anymore, it seems too complicated and I'm giving up on modding crysis. Thanks anyway.

Well, I am still willing to try and help, are you using the crytools launcher to load the sandbox? or to launch crysis, I'm pretty sure kilroy said that the mod only works in crysis through the modified shortcut.

Well, I hope it looks like this: "C:\Program Files (x86) \Electronic Arts \Crytek \Crysis \Bin32 \Crysis.exe" -MOD Tactical- Expansion

Without the spaces of course. What is your log file giving you?

Sorry I'm at work, everything I have given you so far is from memory!

Um, I don't really recall at which points anything are available for pickup, except for a big cache in the tank mission up by the tower overlooking the train depot, have you installed the sandbox editor? I am gonna suggest you install it if you haven't already and get the crytools launcher from clivey; what that is is a way to put anything into the level files of the game, you use the launcher to open the editor and then open one of the levels files and you can insert what are called archetype entities such as guns, ammunition, even vehicles and enemies.

But there is a much easier way to play with new guns straight from the start, you can go to mods\ tactical-expansion\ game\ tactical-expansion.pak and inside the pak is all of the mod files. You can actually change your starting equipment in lib\ equipmentpacks\ player_island_full.xml

To change you're weapons you can duplicate what you see for the SCAR and put in the name of the weapon from the scripts\ items\ xml\ weapons\ blahweapon.xml and do attachments in the same way.

Good luck, don't worry about posting a ton on my page I don't mind at all.

Again I have a question. How exactly do you open .pak files, because when I try to it says something about not having the right program to open it with. Also I have installed the sandbox but I canot find any of the new weapons in the DB section so I cant use them in sandbox. I also cant use the new ammo or attachments in sandbox.

I use this program to open and manipulate the .pak file : Izarc.org

If you do not get clivey's launcher you cannot launch the mod in the sandbox and access the modded materials. here is the link to the version I use: planetcrysis.gamespy.com/View.php?view=UserFiles.Detail&id=30

So you launch the crytools, ignore any messages if it gives any(usually the errors do not effect the program), then use quick launch> launch mod> select the mod in the drop down and launch mod in sandbox. once the sandbox opens, it will open automatically, then open> select the level you want(again it will give errors that you can ignore)> then in the rollup bar you can add objects.

Play with it and have fun the sandbox is very useful.

REMINDER: for the sandbox to actually do anything in game before you close it you must File> export to engine and then save the .cry file to save what you did!

And don't be afraid to vote some karma points for me by clicking the +!
