*IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING DESURA*: Desura should work now, so long as you download the full installer instead of DL/installing through Desura.

The full change log is 18 pages long, but here is a highly summarized list of the mod's features, omitting details like damage changes.

Full details can be found here: Crydev.net

Note that the full change log is very, very long (>90,000 characters). It will take some time to read but it's worth it.

Should you decide to download this, please be sure to read the installation info, which is in a separate "readme" file.

**Note**: There's a mistake in the install info. "Assault" should be "Harbor" instead. You're not missing a level.

**IMPORTANT Note**: Do not use the in-game mod loader to load the mod, as it does not work properly for DLL mods. Use a modified shortcut or the CryTools launcher.

First, I'd like to thank everyone who has supported this mod since its surprise appearance in March of last year. Your feedback and comments were very much appreciated.

As of this writing, Tactical-Expansion V1.1 is in its very final stages. I'm putting an installer together right now. Expect the new version to be out very, very soon.

Meanwhile, here is the change log since version 1.0: Dl.dropbox.com

To summarize, I have added several new weapons to the game. These include the MP5SD, SIG P226, H&K UMP-45, Colt M1911, M110 SASS, and the FNP-45. Also included are the AY-69 SMG and the FGL40 Automatic Grenade Launcher ported over from Warhead.

Most of the weapons in the game have also had their sound effects changed. These sound effects are more realistic and have a lot more bite to them. When stealth goes out the window and things heat up, there are going to be some pretty intense firefights.

Another change concerns vehicles and their engines. In regular Crysis, you can critically damage a vehicle engine and that vehicle will still be able to move. In the latest version of my mod, you can stop a truck with a single shot to the engine from the Barrett M107. Additional damage to the engine will result in that engine catching fire and destroying the truck after a short time. The same goes for tanks, put an AT round from the Gauss Rifle in their rear and watch them burn.

In addition to adding new things, some previous features of the mod were adjusted. For example, some parts of the blood effects were revised and optimized.

One very important thing about this new version is that it will have an installer. That means no more messing around in the sandbox to finish installing the mod. This is due to the fact that quite a few people have had issues getting the sandbox to work properly.

Can someone please tell me how to use the features of the mode? like how to actually get all the attachments? is it integrated to the console and possible to get with commands like i_giveitem attachment_x or something like this because I am now starting the game again with this mode and I want to enjoy some of the new features of the mode but I don't know how to get them...

How can I cap the fps to 60 max?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

is possible to add to this mod The Maximum Immersion mod and Advanced IA mod? It could be a good idea?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Basicly this is a nice addon mod. Sadly the modding community for C1 is
pretty much dead,because this mod screams for beeing implemented in costum
singleplayer maps. As things are now,most costum maps work ok with the mod
enabled,others wont even load or crash at some point.
