    More newly uploaded maps available on all servers:

    • mp_machete (FFA)
    • mp_ns (FFA)
    • mp_rs (FFA)
    • mp_sd (FFA)
    • mp_ship (FFA)
    • mp_wake (FFA)
    • mp_wake_too (FFA)
    • mp_turf (FFA)
    • ctf_surf_n (CTF)


    Mp_wake_too originally also was called mp_wake, so it had to be renamed. They are 2 entirely different maps.


    Our fellow player Noob Saibot was kind enough to provide us with translations for the Russian descriptions of Alexander Gorbunow's maps:


    mp_ship
    The map is based on the ship from the second original Carrier mission. Multiplayer battles can be arranged both on two ships and outside. Four types of small arms and two types of grenades are used, plus boats. There is a bridge and suspension cables to cross the ships. Map size is not so big, even two people can play it.


    mp_ns (Night Shootings)
    This multiplayer map is based on the Ship map, except that the environment is completely redesigned for night. In addition to using the same weapons, night vision goggles and a flashlight are also provided. There is practically no lighting inside the ship.


    mp_rs (Raining Season)
    Damned rain - obscures the eyes, and from its noise just right to deaf. Nothing can be seen further than a hundred meters - binoculars will not help. There are several other people like me and all have one single goal - to survive. With a standard set of weapons, this is not easy to do, and in some places there are also minefields. Dense forests, narrow paths and ... rain. At the moment, a beta version of the map is presented on the site, as there were certain difficulties in rendering. During the game, opponents are illuminated with a bright glow, so finding them is easy. Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to fix this glitch.


    mp_sd (Storm in Desert)
    There is a desert. Completely naked and lifeless ... But sometimes gamers come across there. A small military base, naturally closed. A lot of shelters from which the space is well shot, a standard set of weapons that is issued immediately, a bright scorching sun, blue sky and sand. What else do you need to be happy? Well, yes, there is no water and birds, there are no binoculars. The enemy may run over you in a jeep and not notice it. But if you sit in a freight car, you can wait out the storm. But who said that the carriage cannot be pelted with grenades?


    mp_wake
    Remake of the famous map for the game BATTLEFIELD 1942. Yes, the same Wake. Only in modern realities. Summer, heat, ocean, palm trees, birds ... But they shoot often - they can kill.
    On this map, you will not find an ammo bunker or weapon boxes. You won't need them. Even with the margin given at the beginning, you still won't last long. :) But first- medicine and bulletproof vest are quite enough. Be careful! There are plenty of points from which snipers can shoot well, there are barrels of fuel, lots of shelters and dugouts, as well as all types of transport.


    Thank you for the translations and pointing out these maps to us, Saibot!

    3 more maps updated, and some of our most often played maps to boot:



    • am_angelisland
      The fuel tank at flag 1 had no collision, making it possible to shoot through and hide in it. This longstanding bug has now been rectified with a proper collision model.



    • fcmp_PureAssault
      A rock model, used quite frequently and prominently in this map, had severe collision misalignments, making it possible to see through and partly glitch into it. This has now been fixed by replacing it with a newly rendered model with proper collision. Also, the plant that was missing an unrecoverable texture has been replaced with a new custom model. Furthermore, sprite distance ratios have been slightly increased on this map to somewhat mitigate the obvious vegetation pop-in effects.



    • mp_PureAssault
      Essentially the same map as fcmp_PureAssault, so the same changes as above were applied.



    I understand that many people have become used to these popular maps in the past years, all quirks notwithstanding. Therefore, as always, the original map data and loadscreen were left untouched and are included in the map download for reference.


    A quick overview on the PureAssault maps:



    Fixes:




    All servers are updated, so if you play one of the maps above a download should be offered to you. Simply click yes and you should be fine. If anything goes wrong, please download the maps manually from our mapspace.

    Two more maps have come back from the repair shop:



    • mp_stormdrain
      This map has had an error in its spectator/spawn setup that resulted in players sometimes falling to their deaths. This has now been rectified. I also added a spawn point on top of the crane to provide more variety.



    • mp_gallery
      A prominently placed custom texture was missing (cross-referencing) and has now been correctly re-assigned.

    Two more maps are fixed and available for download:



    • mp_bay21
      Like the similar mp_bombay_f, this map suffered from an erroneous setup, effectively turning it into a 2 flag map. Also, the hanggliders have now been rigged correctly so that they will respawn (on LR servers).



    • mp_2v2_basecamp
      Map was missing the radar beacon and mission texts, causing confusion for attackers at flag 1.

    Hello fellow FarCriers!


    As you might have noticed when playing Far Cry multiplayer maps throughout the years, there are unfortunately a few out there that have had longstanding issues. Some small and negligible, some not so small to the point of becoming dealbreakers. As a matter of fact, a few of these otherwise great maps have been plagued by problems for more than 15 years. With our mapspace steadily approaching 700 maps, we finally thought it's time to address some of these issues:



    • am_assault01
      One defender spawn point was misappropriated to the attacking team, causing confusion and spawn killing mayhem at flag 2.



    • am_blizzard
      Missing cross-referenced map objects have been correctly reassigned.



    • fcmp_pure2_v2
      One spawn point had defenders spawn under the terrain or fall beneath the surface.



    • mp_2v2_predator
      Map was missing cross-referenced textures.



    • mp_bombay_f
      Erroneous flag setup, effectively turning it into a 2 flag map as the first one was already captured by default.



    • mp_tript
      Two spawn points were misplaced and had the defenders get stuck in the ammo box at flag 1.



    Go ahead and give these upgraded versions a try. The original map data and loading screens were left untouched and are included in the map download for reference. Nothing else other than the issues mentioned above has been changed.


    If you already have the old versions of these maps on your harddrive, the LR addon might kick you for level data mismatch and prompt you to redownload the maps once you connect to the server. In case anything goes wrong please download the maps manually from the map space. Click the "Download maps" button, proceed to receive the available maps and download the map. Voilà!



    If you know any other maps with similar problems that you would like to see fixed, please post them here and I'll have a look at them.

    Have you ever wanted to become a Far Cry archeologist? Thanks to our fellow Far Cry veteran =|HSC|= Viper we were able to lay our grimy hands on a huge number of maps (300+) that haven't been available for playing in a very long time.
