A Russian dude played my Crysis mod...

This is pretty random but when I was a teenager (32 now) I made a mod for Crysis 1 that I called the super powers mod 1 and 2 (made 2 versions). Somehow I stumbled upon a Russian YouTube channel in which someone made a full playthrough of my mod. It's a small channel but it made me really happy to find. Feels good to have my mod gain a little appreciation even if it's over a decade later. I don't have any IRL friends that would really understand what I'm talking about here since not a lot of my real friends are big gamers so I just figured I'd share it here.

Haha yea and the mod especially. He's not really using the extra nano suite powers very well. You can basically run up right behind an enemy really fast, cloak, then Choke them over and over if you switch nano suite modes quicky, among other cool sort of combo things that he never really explored.

 

Still really cool to find his videos. I asked him if he liked the mod and he said "medium mod" which I said with a Russian accent in my head. ?

 

I'm not a modder or anything, I just spent a lot of time messing around with the free cryengine editor they came with far cry 1 and Crysis 1. I figured out I could easily alter the enemies to make them harder as well as just copy paste them to make more, and the nano suite changes were just a simple config file. The biggest change is the vtol level, I took out the vtol so the player has to go through it on foot.

 

Here's the mod I'd anyone is curious: https://www.moddb.com/mods/super-powers-mod-2-complete

I still have that mod saved on my NAS actually, as well as that graphical enhancement pack another other forum member had posted.  Real Lifesys I think it was called.  Good times, good times. :wheee_orange:

And you really should feel good about that chain of events, and thank you for sharing it with us all here. :)  Not very many people can say that they've personally made content and its been shared and used worldwide.  That's absolutely an accomplishment.

Love it, must be nice to see a blast from the past like that ! I loved Crysis, though only used higher texture mods on it though. Wanted to see how much I could punish my 8800GTS at the time.

 

I have been tempted to pick up the remastered version.

Thanks man, very kind words and thanks to the others of you who replied. 

 

Did you ever play the mod? 

 

I've actually thought about doing a version 3 of the mod several times but I didn't think it would be worth it for an older game. If the Crysis remaster supported mods, I would do it but as of now I don't think that's possible. That could change though, digital foundry seems to be pressuring crytek to update the game to include the editor. I saw that crytek actually added back in the vtol level in a recent update for the remaster so who knows, maybe they will add the editor as well eventually.

If its on my NAS, I've ran it lol.  I don't RECALL using it, no.  I only ever used Crysis as a benchmark and, "look at all the purdies!".
