This mod fixes what Ubisoft left unfixed. Dylan's Realism Mod changes Far Cry 2 from an Africa-based sedan and pickup truck simulator into a (semi accurate)
African conflict simulator. Realistic weapon damage, recoil, realistic ammo loads and weapon reliability have been added, along with a more effective stealth suit, and revamped AI weapons. (No more SPAS12s and AR15s for militiamen). Checkpoint AI has been tweaked as well. Checkpoint guards now have a 60% chance to chase you after passing through, as opposed to 90%-100% in vanilla. Militiamen also communicate more frequently in combat, and use suppressing fire more often. However, you are now as vulnerable as the AI. A single burst of rifle fire can kill you, so you are probably going to need that extra ammo and stealth suit.

It's nearing the two year anniversary of this mod, and I'd like to thank everyone who has made it a success. You haven't been forgotten. To quote last year's post, "I'd like to thank the fans of this mod and all of the people who have downloaded, watched, or told others about this mod in the past year for making it a success. ".

I am revisiting Far Cry 2, and there is a new version of the mod in the works. What I'm going to look at changing with Version 1.5 is mainly fine tuning the damage system and modifying enemy voice chatter and stamina. Voice chatter and stamina is simple, I want enemies to talk more and I want the player to be able to run further. Those changes are in testing now. However, the big change for 1.5 will be the damage system. I am considering matching the player's health more closely to the enemy health, and giving enemies a little more of a fighting chance. I'm not going back to vanilla FC2, but instead of them being glass cannons and you being a hardened glass cannon, I'm looking at putting the player on level with the enemy troops health-wise and making them both able to resist a little more fire than Version 1.4. Leg and arm damage has been reduced so that rifles are more useful damage-wise and pistols won't be able to instakill enemies with a single shot to the legs from 100m away. I am also planning for the player's health blocks to regenerate slower and take longer to start regenerating. If you have some comments or ideas for the next version of the mod, feel free to PM me.

Thanks again for two years of Far Cry 2 as it was meant to be played.

One year of FC2 as it was meant to be played!

I'm going to be honest. I haven't done much work on Far Cry 2 in the past few months. That's going to change.

First news post in a long time.  Not the last, though.

"Real Mode" is disgustingly tedious with the realtime map markers disabled, and functionally breaks the game for anything but unstructured free-play, and Infamous Fusion isn't realistic at all, just a bunch of obnoxious artificial difficulty.

This is as close as we'll get to an un-f*cked vanilla FC2, which his why it's still very popular.

Because it was the first mod to come out that was a complete overhaul of Far Cry 2 that made the game actually able to be played without getting really ****** of by how unfinished the vanilla version feels. But I agree with you though, it is very outdated now and in my opinion real mode is the best patch mod for Far Cry 2. People are probably just still interested in this mod because they haven't heard of real mode or infamous fusion.

It's probably not coming if he hasn't said anything for over a year. Just go play real mode instead it's a lot better.
