I am looking to get Far Cry, and I really like to make mods, so I was wondering how much you can warp and mod Far Cry.

Can you do the following:

Make maps, both SP and MP

Make new player models, vehicles, plants, props, etc?

Make changes to source code

Make, replace, or add new weapons with different damage, etc properties?

Other?

Thank you!

I'm not a modder, but I do know you can create maps and what not.

The place does seem to have a lack of mods available (at least in my opinion) ,but you can go here to see what other people have done.

Yes. I have experience with both. You can make a simple map or something very complex, but MP is much easier than SP to make maps in. It all depends on what kind of map you want to make.

You import custom objects such as vehicles, plants, structures, props, etc. Most people just use props, vegetation and structures for a map but if you want the objects to be functional like a new weapon [also possible] or vehicle, you need to make a mod that loads after the base game loads.

The SDK is helpful if you want to start modding seriously.

Sure, but that'd be modding.

[quote=seancsnm;4411046] Make, replace, or add new weapons with different damage, etc properties?

Making and adding new weapons is a complicated task like adding a new vehicle, but it can be done, yes. Changing properties of existing items is extremely easy to do, that would be a simple mod, some text files.

[quote=seancsnm;4411046] Other?

Near-endless possibilities.

Ok, then you may see some new files in a year or two, because I probably will get Far Cry in the distant future.

BTW, thanks for the info.
