*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.

This mod seems really interesting, but I can't seem to run it at the same time as Blackfire's mod? Is there any way to run the two together or are they incompatible?

I don't know if this mod is still being worked on, but it is phenomenal. the only thing I would like to see done is having a standard EoTech reticle for the reflex sight.

Truly incredible! The 1.1 mod takes what was a great game and makes it excellent.

After Google turned up rather little, I have, for those who want to lengthen the replay value a little more, or to snipe some Koreans early in the game, made a weapons, ammo and attachments list for those who want to make a custom start, without learning to use the editor. The link is:


THESE ARE CHEAT CODES. If you dislike cheating then please do not download this file. Again, I have included it for those who wish to play around with the game without mastering a complex editor. I believe I mention it in the file but I will say it here: It is entirely possible that the list is incomplete and that some codes do not work properly. It is also possible for the weapons in the extra folder to cause instability within the game, but I'm mostly saying this to cover my bases...

[Error] File sounds/physics_exp1/physics_exp1.fev open failed!

I doubt i'll get answer to this but oh well. I have Crysis on Origin and everytime i try to load the mod via the ways you mention in the readme, up pops a window that says " missing ssleay32.dll" You know of any way to fix this besides using the start up options window in origin?

Is there any way to use this with Crysis Expanded?
The game just disables Crysis Expanded when I start the game with this.

The VS in this is saying it is detecting an updated version of C++ and that VS can't install. Any plans to update the DL?
