Indie doesn't mean illegal.

After 3 years of being a one of the most popular Crysis mods, and being featured in many popular publishers' news, still no one officially said that it is illegal. Ubi and Crytek do know about this project. I asked them many times about co-operation, but still got no answer.

Why do you guys always think about copyrights, not about how cool something is? I understand the stupid copyrihgt situation in your countries, and mass legal illiteracy of the people in those countries, but SOMETHING NEW DOESN'T MEAN TO BE ALWAYS ILLEGAL. That's sad about all of you.

i am a it amazed to read this, that this mod goes indie, because why would you want to make the Far Cry game again on the same engine, only a newer version of it, (the Cryteks sandbox engine). ok, it will look much better but to make only for that reason the whole game again? but, please don't get me wrong, that is just my personal opinion, nothing more! that said, i do have to agree with that i too think that this is on, or even over the border of the copyrights. and that i and the others don't say to be negative, we just don't want you to make a whole indie game, just to find out in the end that you can't release it, or at least ask money for it because of those rights. and this is not because we are legal illiterate but we don't want to see a modder or indie dev get harmed in any way.

when i was you then i would really try to get some answers on this before i would move on with this project, just so you are save and now that it can and may be done.
that they don't answer on a mail with the question if they are interested in a co-operation owner ship doesn't say that they agree to this. best is to check this some more, but, you are free to do what you want. i just don't want you to work on this and get huge troubles.

much success,
and as Far Cry enthousiast i am interested in this, although it will be quit hard to get the original gamesplay quality. but that just makes it much more interesting!

OMG, the only comments I see is "It is illegal" or "it is probably illegal" or "it must be illegal".

I will delete such comments in further, because legality isn't a thing that should be discussed here. If you care so much about legality and copyrights, then get your ***** the **** off from torrents, cracks, patches, youtube (almost illegal), wikipedia, and never say the copyrighted things aloud (it's illegal to say them too). And also never tell your friends what are the movies you've watched about, before you get assured that they paid to the film company money for that movie.

Oh, yeah, the best thing to be 100% legal with internet - just cut off your internet cable from computer, and then format all of disks on it, because there's something that is possible to be illegal inside your computer.

I just want to make clear one thing: I don't care about all this ****, I'm just doing my work. Especially, I don't care, before I'm done.

Make your own game, with your story, your setting and your idea

No you don't, sure you are remaking the maps, the models, probably the textures and the sounds too, but you're still ripping off the name, the setting, the design, the characters and all the ideas of the orignal game in general.
It's not like it would hard to make something new, I mean the only original thing about the first Far Cry was the big landscape other than that the rest could have been taken in a bloody B-movie

Remake is remake, it's not a copy, and if you followed the mod since its beginning, you might hear about our plan: we are not going to just copy everything. Our goal is to re-create it as we think it should be better.

And now, after all of comments in news, I will probably not develop it anymore. People usually don't prefer to read details, they prefer to judge the content by its cover. Of course, I can make it just for people who will download and play that game. But I don't see any point of creating something really great and difficult, to spend my time on those people who will just cry "I GUESS THIS COULD BE ILLEGAL!!!". So, yeah, **** it, go make your own FarCry yourself.

so what, because people bitch and complain that this is illegal you're going to stop production? pretty much every mod gets penalized for something but they don't give up because of some prick who couldn't shut his mouth. I honestly wonder why people post on forums just to put people and their projects down but you need to have more pride than that, screw them this is your interest everyone else is just along for the ride; ignore the idiots. This mod would have better performance, graphics and I personally would love to use my 360 controller with it; that's one thing I can't do with the original game. please continue with this it has more going for it than just graphics and screw the legal system, it only helps the rich stay rich... nuff said!

Oh please, Alex626 is one pillaging and I'm the bad guy here ? Also don't give that whole 'screw the system' thing, you are not a radical badass, and we aren't dealing with trying to import foreign culture into a dictatorship.
It's just a single guy incapable of comming up with his own idea for a game, that could have a been an hommage to the first Far Cry, with an orignal story and characters, but no it's a blank copy/pasta, with a couple of new weapons, and upgraded maps.

Copy-pasta is when you rip the things directly. CryEngine and CryENGINE 3 are incompatible, so we have to do a remake of everything.

Remaking the Far Cry is a giving a tribute to it!

Yeah right, a tribute you are calling your work, a real tribute would have been an original game keeping the core gameplay of Far Cry and would have tried to give us something orignal

Well, you're more than welcome to make the mod as an indie game without asking permission from the original owners of the retail game. You just need to prepare for any legalese they shoot at you once you name a price tag.

Actually no, it's a breach of the contract, if he bought the original game, and a breach of copyright in a more general fashion, selling it or not.
Selling it make it more risky to get problem through

It's not a reason for me to stop the mod. I just was upset with latest news comments. We will develop it slowly, anyway.
