If you love Far Cry 3 but want to spice up your gameplay with more realism, challenge and immersion, then you should definitely check out Ziggy's Mod. This mod is the biggest and most comprehensive mod available for Far Cry 3, and it completely rebalances almost every aspect of the game to offer a more satisfying and enjoyable experience for the player.
Ziggy's Mod removes all of the arbitrary restrictions on the game's content, giving you access to everything from the beginning (not for free) and allowing you the freedom to choose how you want to play. You can unlock all weapons and syringes from the start, customize signature weapons, enable all attachments for all weapons, unlock the southern island from the start, and even use the wingsuit from the crafting menu.
But don't think that this mod makes the game easier. On the contrary, Ziggy's Mod increases the difficulty and realism of the game by making several changes to the gameplay mechanics. For example, enemy weapons do increased damage, enemies have a larger variety of weapons and carry secondary weapons, enemies wear camouflage clothing and black gear, location-based damage modifiers are added, suppressors aren't completely silent anymore, tagging/wallhacking is disabled, enemy sniper lasers are removed, bullet tracers are removed, free weapon unlocks from radio towers are removed, object highlighting/blinking is disabled, and much more.
Ziggy's Mod also enhances the user interface and audio of the game by removing all unnecessary HUD popups, on-screen interaction prompts, grenade switch tick, crouch/stand sound, humming on menus, death music, XP gain sound, interaction prompt sound, and various other sounds. It also adds realistic icons for weapons, cleans up the appearance of several menus, adds hi-res icons for skills menu and world map, replaces the minimap with a hi-res compass, adds hi-res reticles for all attachment sights, and adds multiple reticle color options for all attachment sights.
Ziggy's Mod also adds some new content to the game, such as the Type 10 pistol shotgun from multiplayer, two new melee weapons (machete and kukri), unique effects for signature weapons (such as explosive arrows for Predator), muzzle brake attachment (reduces recoil but increases noise), long-range scope attachment (increases zoom but reduces field of view), two new colors of night sight attachments (green and red), and more weapon stats to the store menu.
Ziggy's Mod is compatible with most other mods that don't modify gameplay or UI elements. It also has different versions for different preferences: regular version (with crafting requirements), hardcore version (with increased difficulty), vanilla version (with minimal changes), and custom version (with user-defined options). You can download Ziggy's Mod from Nexus Mods or Mod DB.
Ziggy's Mod is a must-have for Far Cry 3 fans who want to experience the game in a new and exciting way. It is a mod that respects the original vision of the game but enhances it with more realism, challenge and immersion. If you haven't tried it yet, what are you waiting for? 29c81ba772
