Discover one of the most beautiful but also most hostile environments in the world, Africa. You are sent to this war-torn region to assassinate the Jackal, a mysterious arms dealer who has rekindled conflict between local warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives.

In order to fulfill your mission you will have to become a gun for hire, trapped in a war-torn African state stricken with malaria, and forced to make deals with corrupt warlords on both sides of the conflict in order to make this country your home.

Play the warring factions against each other, identify and exploit their weaknesses, and neutralize their superior numbers with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.

The Vanilla+ Mod Collection

Four Different Flavours of Far Cry 2


I have created four different mods for Far Cry 2 so that whatever your preference or playstyle there is something here for you. My aim is that whether you've never played Far Cry 2 or you’ve played it a hundred times there is a new experience to be had. Each mod has different options to choose from and in total there are 24 ways to play.

The base game has been tweaked and improved upon in addition to whole new features that have been added.

These are the best of the brand new features, available in every mod within the collection:

  • Enemy infighting - The world is now alive as the civil war rages around you and you are caught between both sides.
  • Expanded enemy arsenal - Now it’s not just you that has access to the heaviest firepower, the enemies come fully equipped too.
  • Silent machete assassinations - Time to unleash your inner Solid Snake because stealth kills won’t alert everyone around you!
  • Additional ‘gadget’ weapon slot - Choose either the flare gun or IEDs for an extra weapon slot accessible by pressing the machete button twice.
  • Weapon holstering - Put your weapons away and get immersed while looking for diamonds or taking screenshots.
  • Weapon inspecting - take a closer look at your weaponry and enjoy unique animations at the press of a button.
  • Improved graphics - Lots of improvements including further draw distance, improved LOD and better shadows. 60fps is targeted on all hardware and the changes scale so if you have a 2080ti or integrated graphics you will see graphical improvements.
  • New game+ mode - One playthrough not enough? Start again against tougher enemies and reacquire your weapons at the start of the game.
  • Optional limited saving - Turn up the difficulty or relive Far Cry 2 on console by limiting saving to in-game save points.

All of these come along with lots of gameplay tweaks including increased stamina, increased jump height, reduced fall damage, faster vehicles, swapped enemy patrol vehicles, less bullet spongey enemies and much more!

Check out each mod’s page for a full feature list, but let’s take a look at what the different versions include.

Vanilla Banner

This is my original mod, designed with the purpose of enhancing Far Cry 2 without changing the original feel. Seriously, every mod focuses on realism while the vanilla game is already great!

It might not be to everyone’s taste but I enjoyed Far Cry 2 as it came, malaria and bullet sponge enemies included. If you’ve never played before this version is first playthrough appropriate while adding enough to make the experience fresh for veterans.

There are no exclusive features in this version but if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

Realism banner

Something about Far Cry 2 inspires the desire for a brutal, immersive experience. The more recent Far Cry games have turned into playgrounds of destruction but Far Cry 2’s atmosphere and mechanics make you feel like the whole world is coming for you without mercy.

To cater to this Far Cry 2: Realism+ comes with two main exclusive features:

The first feature is 2x damage for both the player and enemies. This makes combat much more unforgiving and to cope with that enhanced first aid is included where the player can heal when out of healing syringes by holding the heal button.

The second feature is limited navigation. You’ll have to be aware of your surroundings as the map no longer shows your position, undiscovered outposts aren’t marked and there are no more objective arrows pointing you in the right direction. Coloured roadsigns that lead to objectives are also removed.

These features are available separately or together so the gameplay can be as realistic as you like.

Chill banner

Malaria getting you down? Getting annoyed by weapons exploding in your hands? Well Far Cry 2: Chill+ is for those that want to relax in Africa without the hassle of more survival orientated features.

I’ve included exclusive features designed to make things a little easier, such as unlimited stamina, unlimited breathing underwater and no fall damage. Sit back and relax with every weapon being available at the start of the game for reduced prices. Your buddies are invincible so there’s no fear of being out there alone. The most common complaints have also been addressed and time between malaria attacks has been increased x10 and weapon reliability has been increased x5. All of this comes with enhanced first aid so you’ll always be able to heal yourself.

Insanity banner

This is Far Cry 2 as you’ve never played it before. Playing more like a mix of Far Cry and Crysis, Far Cry 2: Insanity+ allows you to approach every encounter in a new way. Fight from rooftops and cliffs that were previously inaccessible, jump down from mountains or hang gliders as you attack, use hills as ramps and fly in vehicles that have a massive boost in power. You are now your enemies’ worst nightmare.

Your enemies know you’re coming though and have brought their heaviest firepower to try and fend you off. They come with their end-game weapons, plus extra grenade launchers. Enemy drivers always come equipped with flamethrowers so be prepared to watch the world burn. Your buddies also got the message and brought their own big guns, along with flamethrowers and grenade launchers.

And that’s it! I hope that everyone can find something here to enjoy.

Golden AK-47 ought never to deteriorate, that is my opinion. But it should count as a special weapon, in return.

Anyway, just learned there is a paraglider in this game, just how cool is that?

Other thing, thought of a "rusty" challenge - use only looted weapons in the game, never guns bought from the vendor, even though you do have the right to upgrade guns and other equipment of use - in most simple terms, do not visit the armory, ever. This also prohibits you to "refuel" ammo in the armory or use any utilities present there, adding extra spice to the challenge. Only weapons of quality you can use are the pistols handed to you by your buddies in rescues - which is the regular Makarov, I suppose. Other than that, your machete, plus you can use the vehicle-mounted and the stationary heavy guns. Theoretically, the golden Kalashnikov, does not break the rule of a challenge, especially that it does deteriorate eventually, as it is present.

I am also quite wowed that grenade launcher is a secondary weapon, but yeah, that does make sense.

Important Suggestion to all FC2 MODDERS
Just some ideas to Give this Game a Second Life (Unlimited/Endless/Realistic Survival Freeplay Features):

SURVIVAL

MAIN CHARACTER NEED TO DRINK WATER (!) AND EAT FOOD to survive (after some game time passed). Add effect from pills from malaria to water and food.

- The effects occurs depending on how long the character runs in sprint mode without using transport.
- A character can carry 2 or 3 points of water or food with him so as not to lose consciousness during the game.
- Food can be looted (you will take 1 food point) if you kill the animals you can also buy food for diamonds from a merchant.
- Water can be found at mercenary outposts, but cannot be bought from a merchant like food.

GUNS

The weapons that you buy from the merchant do not remain in the arsenal “forever”, but are used once and eventually wear out, but they are better and break less often than the ones you pick from the mercenaries.

- The weapons you buy from the merchant are used once (if it breaks or you change it to another), but if you have enough diamonds you can buy several units of guns at once (and use them later).

- If you have not used some kind of weapon for a long time, but bought skills on it, then after some time - they disappear and you need to re-buy them again from the dealer.

DIAMONDS

To compensate the features I described, it is NECESSARY to make the diamonds respawn again after a certain period of time, so you can loot them again (FOREVER) and buy a new weapons/skills or food from a merchant.

- You can endlessly complete missions from mercenary leaders or merchantsand have much more diamonds than in cases.

- Each time you take a mission from a merchant or from mercenary leaders - you get a random mission from those that were in the original game and you can perform them endlessly.

LIVING WORLD

- The game will spawn a random number of mercenaries at a long distance and in a random direction from the main character (This feature should "populate" empty locations in the game world).

If to be peculiar about it, vehicles would need to refuel and could run out of fuel eventually, while the fuel should refill in the same manner as your Molotovs and other 'gasoline' based weapons. For example, if you have collected a fresh gasoline supply, the first vehicle you get into afterwards, will recharge fuel to a maximum amount. Not pretty balanced, is it, to imagine carrying around all those gallons of liquid, while being prickly at the same time about one more grenade at the belt, needing an upgrade to carry? Vehicles differ upon fuel consumption, depending on their speed and mass. Mass of a vehicle, should project upon the gunfire cover that it provides to the driver. Samewise, you speak of water, but what about the shade? Walking in full sunlight ought to exhaust the protagonist a lot more than walking at night, sunrise, sundown or in a forest. If to be ridiculous, walking under full sunlight without 'recharging' in any sort of 'legitimate' shadow could result in the character passout, samewise like with the malaria thing, to a degree, but this, ought to affect not only the protagonist, but other characters as well. If to think about it, how would you distinguish 'legitimate' shadow? You would have to introduce a "petrol station" philosophy, where entering a location does this or that to the equipment. But to speak for real, I mean, is it worth it? Is 'Far Cry 2' not designed in a way that it is supposed to be, which is, punishing but not borderline ridiculous about it?

EDIT:

Furthermore, what about the resting? Should the game force you to rest with blurry vision and stuff? But then, can you rest wherever or only in the safe houses, perhaps in "resting petrol stations", which are areas generally marked as safe, but again, what does "safe" mean?

Also include some weapons developed in Africa, like the NTW 20

These are some neat ideas! I originally wanted to include a number of them with redux:

- incorporate water/thirst, and tie it to stamina

- buy "crates" of weapons. 5 diamonds buys a crate of AKs

- more non-respawning enemy groups and conflicts

Unfortunately, none of this is possible without a proper development kit. Sounds like some great ideas for an indie successor to FC2, though...

Brilliant game from a very good game developer company. If you love open world games, especially FPS games, then this would be something that you will love. This game throws you into a hostile environment and basically anything can kill you; from malaria to hang-glider crashes. You will have to survive by relying on the only few weapons you have that can be by times, not really reliable after all, and as well as your buddies that can bust you out of a firefight when needed. This game is in my opinion…
