Sadly, I have to officially announce that The Mutant Factor 2 mod is officially dead.
I know there have been no updates so most of you already figured this out but I wanted to finally explain what happened.
Basically, two things killed this mod:
1. The modding community and Crytek never really supported modding on Crysis 2. I was so excited to use the C2 assets and editor and loved what I had created so far. Unfortunately, I ran into technical issues that were not present in the older engine and, when I probed the forums, found nothing to help me. Crytek didn't even have a Crysis 2 modding forum! They were too focused on the FreeSDK. I thought that would be great until I realized that I could not use any of the C2 assets which I needed for my mod. I am not a modeler so the FreeSDK didn't have everything I needed to complete the mod. That was so frustrating!
2. My interest waned. Simple as that. I am a team of one (with the exception of the voiceover talent and some help with the menu in the first mod) so I had no one to spur me onwards. I was hitting a brick wall with technical issues and I was beginning to work on my music again after almost 20 years.
So there you have it. I never posted that the mod was dead because I held out hope that I would, once again, pick up where I left off and release something. I do not usually let projects die without finishing them.
On an upbeat note, I released my first album in years in October of 2015 and am halfway through my 2nd album. Here is our bands Facebook page: Void Contact FaceBook Page
If you use the app on our FB page, you can listen to the first album: "Many Happy Returns".
It's a mix of Power Pop (Jellyfish, Toy Matinee, and The Beatles) meets Progressive Rock (Yes, Genesis, and Rush) with lots of harmonies!
