i was wondering if it was possible to make a map in the map editor and then transfer it over th your pc and make it so you could eather add more stuff then the editor usually allows or if you can make it so u can have multiple themes like the military and the ruins together in the same map.


thanks

a good hack for far cry would be removing the 8 map limit in the map pool .. i run a dedicated host on kai and it would be sweet if i could leave it on all day with 100s of maps ..

Sorry just seen that I posted this in user maps and not here... Fixing that.

"has anyone tryed hexing the .dat and .fat files for multi player Brushes and whatnot.
I would love to be able to use military and research together. Is there a program out there that can open these and add new things into these things or even through hex add new things in????" Well I am working on that as I speak and about to test to see what will happen. I put research and military together... If all goes well I will add Ruins to it and have all 3 there...

Let me know how that goes...

I've noticed alot more variables in the map game saves. For the complete story check out my site HERE. Fog color and weather are some of the options that reside in the Map's data file. That's in the game save, so the key would be needed. On the other end of the spectrum, editing the game files directly would be easier. I don't see the research and military working together. It would be easier to write a extract/inject program to replace brushes with half from the research and the other half from military. I have tried editing the Military/Tropical data, but no luck yet.

Oh, did I mention, the largest map collection online? *Plug* biggrin.gif

Well here is the jist of it...

Files to look at to add/replace things

1: farcryed.dat
2:MET_Dependency/met_dependency.dat
3:Any MET folder with the .dat file...

I will work on trying to replace things instead of adding them to the list in the editor.
(Always froze when adding)

So maybe when replacing it will load and not freeze.

PS: Also if anybody can get me ALL the brush names and whatnot organized like
Large brushes
small brushes
trees

I think the .fat files maybe another security issue. Maybe a sigkey? I'm looking into that right now...

it's a signature, if you edit the dat files it will list the map as damaged.

Anybody good with finding out sigkeys? I wouldn't mind making a tool to better suit modding this game.
