******* NOTE: On the Desura page, please be sure to download 'Full Tactical-Expansion V1.1 Installer", as this will eliminate the Desura installation issues. ******* This mod enhances the things that make Crysis great, and adds a number of new things. New blood effects, bullet drop and penetration, 22 new ammo types, and more weapon changes than I could list here. Armored vehicle have different ammo types. The US Tank gets SABOT, HEAT, and Canister shells. The NK Tank gets HEAT, SABOT, and AT-11 Missiles. The APC's get HEI-T (normal) shells and Canister shells for the cannon, and the TOW missiles are now player guided. Weapons are more versatile, for example the Gauss Rifle can destroy any vehicle and can shoot through concrete walls. The SCAR with all the different attachments and 40mm grenade types can be used in any situation. Also included are Fortran's Barrett M107, and Rad15's advanced AI, used with permission of the respective creators.

In the early stages right now. Taking it one weapon at a time, but first I need to copy over the particle effects which is a slow process. Been on it for the last two hours.
Have to first create the entries in the sandbox, which is done, then open the file and copy the data for each individual effect.

Yay for XML notepad 2007, this would be a nightmare to do with plain notepad.

You're welcome :)

Little update: the changes to the shotgun and SOCOM .45 are in, and I'm working on the other weapons. Going to save the SCAR and FY for last since they're the most complicated due to all of their attachments.

Now I just have to sort out what to do with the ammo. Crytek elected to make Warhead's levels completely locked-down, so I can't place weapons or pickups in them. All customs weapons will have to be either replacements or used by certain AI, and special ammo has to be either given at the start of the game and/or given when weapons are picked up.

Petition Crytek to unlock the levels? They're not even using the same engine any more...

They would need to upload the .CRY files to do that. I've tried to contact Crytek in the past with questions related to game code and got no response at all, so I doubt a petition would get anywhere.

OK guys, this is very much WIP, but I've uploaded the current state of the Warhead version for you to play around with. There's still a lot of things to add and adjust, but currently the shotgun, SOCOM, SMG, AY-69, and DSG are in, as well as some of the SCAR/FY attachments.

Install is nothing fancy, just put the downloaded .PAK file in your Crysis Warhead/Game folder. You'll need to start a new game or load a map with the console.

Note that the AY-69 is in the "5" weapon slot.

You're porting your very cool Tactical Expansion mod to Warhead? That is way too cool!! Glad to see you still modding, I love this one.

P.S. I found a possible problem with TE for Crysis. I left the comments on that page (v1.1)

One more thing Kilroy: thanks for mentioning Lindsey Stirling, I'd not heard of her before. I've found a lot of really good music from checking out what writers and modders listen to while writing/whatever.

I tried to play Warhead almost a year ago just after finishing Crysis with TE installed and had to abandon it a day later. Compared to Tactical Expansion vanilla crysis just felt as interesting as a piece of stale wonderbread. Now that TE is being ported to Warhead I'll have to install it again.

I've noticed it too during testing. Always assumed it was a memory leak, but more than one person getting a crash when a helicopter shows up seems like way more than coincidence.

The process of porting the mod to Warhead - Involves Lindsey Stirling music, note taking, lots of windows, and trying not to confuse myself.
