A new Far Cry 3 mod strips down the confines and limitations of the game, giving a much more free and open experience with Ubisoft’s tropical island shooter.
Ziggy’s mod takes a simplistic approach to the Far Cry 3 gameplay and drops the unnecessary HUD and game prompts that detract from the open world layout.
The mod removes the minimap and replaces it with a simple compass, which doesn’t identify plant and treasure icons, further relying on your naked eye to spot objects you require.
It may seem like it makes things a lot harder, but the fact is that it immerses players a lot more and adds some reward to actually finding items.
The mod also unlocks the entire map (both islands) from the start, along with all weapons being purchasable, allowing you to really tackle what you want.
The crafting system has also been reworked; upping the requirements needed for crafted items, but giving you more pouches for your work. This makes it a bit more difficult, and while it may put some off, it does add greater value to your discoveries.
Enemies are also outfitted in camouflage gear, making them harder to spot from their original bright-red getups.
So if you’re looking to turn Far Cry 3’s fetching missions into a real challenge of exploration, then check out Ziggy’s mod.
