Crysis - Natural Mod 2.0.2


Total votes: 82

The objective of this mod is to transform the ambient atmospheric lighting to make Crysis much more realistic. Basically make Crysis look better for NO framerate cost.

For comparison pictures check this thread here.

What does the Natural Mod add to Crysis?

* realistic atmospheric lighting
* realistic dusk and dawn
* realistic ambient fog
* realistic sun
* realistic night
* realistic moon position

Modified singleplayer levels

* Island - Contact
* Village - Recovery
* Rescue - Relic
* Harbor - Assault
* Tank - Onslaught
* Mine - Awakening
* Sphere - Exodus
* Ascension - Ascension


* Launch the installer and follow the instructions
* Launch the game

Remark n°1: The installer copies a file "System.cfg" at the root of your Crysis directory
Remark n°1: If you already have a "System.cfg", it will be renamed as "System_backup.cfg"

The provided "System.cfg" removes HDR glitches and enables all necessary effects to fully enjoy the Natural Mod. However, low-end systems may encounter performance drop with these settings, because it activates certain very high effects. If the framerate of the game is too low, open the "System.cfg" with the Windows Notepad and follow the instruction of the last section "Framerate Optimizations".

If you launch a level by using an old savegame, the position of the moon will be the default one (unrealistic). To avoid this, begin a new game or use the provided savegames in "Start menuProgramsNatural ModSavegames". Furthermore, you can launch the desired level by using the console command "map level_name".

The installer automatically backs up the modified files and will restore them in case of uninstallation
