Well, the game has no "proper" mods. This would greatly Increase the number of players, if we had say, a pirates mod. also it's nprimarily a single player game, unlike for example Battlefield1942/2/vietnam etc

And also it is not a sequel like HL2, D3, BF Series, etc. So the community base is fresh and well, n00bish. When you start with nothing you have to learn it all if you're to make a mod which will [hopefully] be successful [like Counterstrike] and more people will join the community. But since Farcry is not a sequel, it's fan base is small. I map, and I consider myself a medium to high quality mapper. I am also one of the more active mappers in the community. There are like 3 modders out there. The DOG with his K-9 mod, the Matto gang, and a few others. Hopefully, Matto 4 and future K-9 releases will change this, and Farcry will grow. Also, the expansion pack can only help Farcry. If FC's community base was 1/4 as big as HL, it'd be great. Actually, I can't imagine that. *cries.* But FC isn't dying. Nor is it dead, it's just small. Give it more time for mods to develop which will draw in more players.

Also the mods need to translate their work, if it's all in german then most english-speaking players won't d/l, and vice versa

The reason I don't play it for is...well that I hate MP in general because of the clans. (very bad experience with them) Anyways, if people would request it I'd be pleased to help out as translator between German and English since I speak both languages fluently, it is a fact that this game was developed in Germany and so the community is mainly German. The problem from my view is however not the quality but the quantity on mods, I looks for them almost daily for FarCryFiles but we're more and more running out of them. Mods like the K9 Vision Mod have shown that good mods don't have to come from Germany, but the community is new and so the modders don't come out with much. We can only hope that this will change, I will be pleased to support any new modder in every way I and the team of FarCryFiles can.

This is one of the reasons that the Tutorial section on my website is going to be very vast. It's just that if someone wants help, you really gotta ask hard or find out the answers on your own to the question, it's not easy. But if you submit like a new SP map or mod, ppl are all over you, "great job," "I love it!," "nice work," but no one helps you if your project is something more than a simple layers/textures/something lame question. It's sad and I think a big turn off for many aspiring mappers/modders. Thats another reason I'm doing the Designer Map Pack thing; to HELP PEOPLE.
