*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.

Uhh.I registered to ask for some help.
I got pretty confused at using the editor because the link to crytools doesn't work anymore and the editor just crashes when I load up the maps.Is there any way I could get a working levels.pak file somewhere or should I just give up :(

In this case just do plan B. It's buried somewhere in these comments but here it is.

1-Ensure you have a backup. Can't stress that enough.

2-Go to "Crysis/mods/Tactical-Expansion/Game/" and copy the "levels" folder inside to the "Crysis/Game" folder, overwriting the files.

3-Now load the *normal* sandbox and do the open level + export procedure. You won't see the new objects in the editor, and you'll see lots of yellow spheres, but when you load the mod in the game it will work fine.

One other thing, if the editor is still crashing try changing the editor config spec (there's a button along the top) to low. No idea what your computer is, but if you can barely run the game the editor will struggle.

I found a mistake into my folder structure. The entire Folder was in the Mods folder not only the Tactical-Expansion folder.

But it doesend work. In the editor i can see the 20mm weapon. But if i start the game there is only a big yellow ball. So the claymore mine isnĀ“t possible to use. There is always this red "X". And there is no kind of new ammounition

That's steam being annoying. The mod isn't loading for the game, but it is for the sandbox.

First go to the "library" tab in steam and right click on the game. Click "properties", then click "set launch options".
Then type the same thing you added to the editor shortcut target field into the window that comes up.
This will make the mod load every time you launch the game, so you'll have to undo this procedure to play the normal game or other mods.

I reinstall the game from steam. Download seven GB and try another Install of 1.2. But I read in steamforum about an mistake of steam. Steam didn`t show which patch it has install. The Version number (or something like that) is the aktuell Version.

That error report looks pretty typical. All the maps have errors, even without a mod loaded, so that's nothing to worry about.

Now, with steam, the game automatically updates, that way you should have the correct version.

That being the island map, the fastest way to test if the mod is loaded would be to fly to the area with the bonus objective. Look on the wooden platform for a stack of metal ammo boxes, you should see a bunch of different ammo pickups on top of it. You should also see a 20 mm cannon in the corner of the platform like what is shown here:


You could also just press control + G, switch to your pistol. It should be very different.

(Note: I need to go to bed now, so it will be a while before I'm back on here)
