There's been significant progress over the last two years, and in addition to everything above there are customisation options which include a complete ai-enhanced texture pack and a script which stops outposts from respawning the moment you leave the area (thank you to Scubrah).

Come and check out the mod pages for all the details, as there's way too many changes to list here.


There are multiple different versions of the mod available, each has a few key changes on top of everything listed so far:

Vanilla+ (Available here)

Vanilla+ leaves the game's original combat unchanged, with its infamous bullet sponge enemies.

Realism+ (Available here)

Realism+ removes the bullet sponge enemies and makes combat deadlier by increasing player and enemy damage.

Chill+ (Available with vanilla or realistic combat)

Chill+ tones down common annoyances like malaria and weapon degradation.

Insanity+ (Available with vanilla or realistic combat)

Insanity+ gives superhuman agility like super fast sprinting and crazy high jumping, so you can approach every encounter from a new perspective.
