*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.

First, I'd like to thank everyone who has supported this mod since its surprise appearance in March of last year. Your feedback and comments were very much appreciated.

As of this writing, Tactical-Expansion V1.1 is in its very final stages. I'm putting an installer together right now. Expect the new version to be out very, very soon.

Meanwhile, here is the change log since version 1.0: Dl.dropbox.com

To summarize, I have added several new weapons to the game. These include the MP5SD, SIG P226, H&K UMP-45, Colt M1911, M110 SASS, and the FNP-45. Also included are the AY-69 SMG and the FGL40 Automatic Grenade Launcher ported over from Warhead.

Most of the weapons in the game have also had their sound effects changed. These sound effects are more realistic and have a lot more bite to them. When stealth goes out the window and things heat up, there are going to be some pretty intense firefights.

Another change concerns vehicles and their engines. In regular Crysis, you can critically damage a vehicle engine and that vehicle will still be able to move. In the latest version of my mod, you can stop a truck with a single shot to the engine from the Barrett M107. Additional damage to the engine will result in that engine catching fire and destroying the truck after a short time. The same goes for tanks, put an AT round from the Gauss Rifle in their rear and watch them burn.

In addition to adding new things, some previous features of the mod were adjusted. For example, some parts of the blood effects were revised and optimized.

One very important thing about this new version is that it will have an installer. That means no more messing around in the sandbox to finish installing the mod. This is due to the fact that quite a few people have had issues getting the sandbox to work properly.

Have being play this mod for years with 32bit but CAN run the 64bit up until Assault (harbor) level.
After killing the knock off’s at the end of Relic. The Assault level starts loading almost gets to the end, and then will CTD.
Have loaded the map via console and will work but at some stage will the while playing (can be 2 minutes usually or 20 but rare and have never had a complete play through) will CTD.
The vanilla 64bit/ runs without any issues and with texture mods also.
Anyone have a fix for this?
I just get better performance with the 64bit as in higher lower FPS where the 32bit has a minor dip in some areas.
Win 10 64bit version 1809.
Retail version of Crysis.

A small help for summoning weapons,attachments and ammo:

Type it EXACTLY as you see them without extra spaces

Also be aware you CANNOT have everything !!! There is limitation because there is a lot more new content in weapons,ammo and attachments.
