I've been to some of the web pages devoted to Far Cry and was planning to DL the SDK and play with it to see what I could come up with. Any thoughts on Far Cry mods in general and which ones really stand out as stellar achievements?

I was wondering the same thing.  I guess the lack of responses says it all.  There must not be any I guess.

I wouldn't know... I was pissed off enough about the 1.3 patch thing that I haven't reinstalled since.

In theory they're working on another patch right now, so take that for what it's worth. I've got a book mark at home to a site dedicated to Far Cry stuff, but I've not explored it much. One of these days though...

I'm interested as well, although I have not heard of anything like the breakout mods that came out for Battlefield 1942 for example.

I think it's the fact that the Source engine has a bigger name so it will be getting the majority of the next cool mods.  Does the Crytek engine support multiplayer?  I've only played the game a little on a friend's computer (mine won't do it justice) and I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the game and the visuals are just plain awesome.  I'd love to have a multiplayer game on one of those islands.

I read in the HL2 PC Lamer that there is a Tresspaser mod (not sure if it's a TC or not) in the works, complete with dinosaurs. That would rule all. biggrin

I'm with clanwolfer. I want a new working patch that fixes all the little nags the game has before I bother touching it again.

Far Cry's multiplayer is pretty standard.  It's as generic as SOF2's, but without the great feel that kept me going back to SOF2 multiplayer for quite a while.  A few more distinctive weapons would keep it a lot more interesting.  Of course, it doesn't help that they released a 1.3 patch to fix quite a few bugs, and only THEN discovered it FUBARed the game with an astonishing amount of configurations, THEN declined to issue a rollback patch.  I got to the uninstalling the entire game part, then decided to reinstall when it's worth it.

Guess what?  It hasn't been, yet.

There's a coop mod out.  It works pretty well.  My buddy and I played about 4 levels last night and the only bugs we noticed were a few sync issues like helicopters not being visible to anyone but the host.

We were doing playing a lan so it only took one cd.  Over the internet would probably require two cd-keys.

Anywhere else you can get that mod?  That site makes you register first.  I even tried and it still won't let me login.

Hi mikeg -

FWIW, I tried to register at a site lately and they wouldn't let me - e-mail denied.  I contacted them and they sent a message a couple days later.  

They said that they had been attacked and that the problem had come from non-isp issued e-mail addresses, so they are denying registrations on that basis.  I sent in my ISP issued address and they signed me right up.

Looks like a bunch of sites have it for download by putting in "FarCry COOP Mod Av8.2" in Google.  Filefront, GamersHell, etc. all seem to have it available for download.
