I'm using only the Compilation 2.6 mod, I started a new game last night
I can't see the map markers I make... I could see them in 1.6 (I think it was, which was the one I did my entire first playthrough with) but now I can't see them at all. I also can't see any icons on hunting/contract boards. This didn't happen before, but it happens now. It only occurred after I took the first outpost in my new game, it was working before that.
Okay here is my first compilation. This is an experimental compilation, please use test only.****
THIS METHOD IS OBSOLATED.
> USE THIS THREAD <
So the name will be :
Warning! Currently tested DX11 only!
Use own risk! This mod is harmless and don't affect the a multiplayer game experience but I don't recommend how use online play.
- removed minimaps rendering (.dll) and replace a compass (its a simple texture editing)
- and remove both minimap icons (its a simple texture editing)
- remove area visibility in minimap container (mission - restricted zones ? - need confirm)
- remove fog of war in worldmap. Worldmap show the full map of Islands. If you unlocked a radiotower just show the territories - about unliberated outposts. Example here. Note: if want this feature need remove minimap too or fog of war (the complete alpha layer) remove in minimaps too...
- the .dll contain - now removed, use SFK for patching - weapon holster, stop blinking, remove crouch/stand icon patch too.
- if you want switch HUD on / off live the compilation included a Cheat Engine Table: just load in CE select process Far Cry 3 load the table and tadaam, PgUp switch on off in the HUD.
- the included test patch contained some mod from Chorizosss / jketiynu / inakrin - like wingsuit/2nd island, and skill abiality unlock...

For .dll patching, use my little tool: SFK Binary Patcher (i updated patch library with Compass mode.)
**** Here is a safe method for the testing:
- I recommend only try this if you finish the whole game!
- Pls. backup your safe files (Program Files\Ubisoft Game Launcher\savegames\...)
- Try testing offline.
Warning! Use own risk without any warranty!

WELCOME TO NEVERLAND V2 : PICK YOUR CHOICE
To totaly test this mod , i should finish all the game but i already played some hours withit without seeing any issues.
With this mod , when player unlock an outpost a message ask him if he want to take control of this outpost ! ! If The player choose "Cancel" Rakyats are coming to defend it but you still in red zone !! Meaning that you still can make pirates encounters !!.If you click "Ok" , the oupost behave just like normal , the camp turn into a safehouse fast travel point and you have acces to automatic shop and memory card ... BUT pirates are no longer spawning . So choose wisely , because an outpost turned into a safehouse can't be pirate or merc owned again.
-Once an outpost is unlocked ( but still in red area ) , you will recieve 500 xp and 300$.
-FastTravel to outposts in red area is impossible.
-Once you quit the game the outposts that are reds are re-taken by pirates .
-Animal hunt and Wanted quest of every outpost are unlocked from the begining so you can play them without unlocking an outpost.
-Main mission outposts and safehouses left unmodified.
-Outpost Safehouse in red area remain closed.
Planing to do next release :
-Give player a memorycard...because as the outpost is not unlocked the safehouse remain closed , so no access to the memory card.
Why ? Because i didn't find the memorycard objectid ... maybe in a still encrypted file ?
Or count the number of outposts taken by player and at 10 times unlock the weapon unlocked by memorycards.
-Make different amount of xp bonus depend of how the outpost is unlocked ( stealthy , rambo style ... ).
ps : Already unlocked outposts still unlocked :/ so if you already unlocked every outpost , you must restart a new game to take total benefit of this mod.
ps2 : If you want sidequests to not be unlocked when you're cleaning an outpost without making it your safehouse , just don't use the getsafehousestate.lua file gived in the .rar.
-How to install it ? Put it in your patch.dat and patch.fat ! How ? Read the first post .
-As outposts are re-taken by pirates , if i die , i will spawn in the middle of pirates ? No , The game will spawn you in a safe house you already unlocked before using this mod , a radio tower , or in safehouses opened during mainquest ( like amanaki village , doctor's house etc ...).. but you will not spawn in an outpost that still red thanks to this mod. .
If you see any issue please tell me , i will keep up this mod as updated as i can.

I see some minimap modders have added an alpha mask to make it semi-transparent. How did they do this?
I'd like to keep the minimap as it is but make it semi-transparent, and is it also possible to make the other HUD elements semi-transparent as well?
I've unpacked and converted textures to dds and attempted to add alpha masks but it doesn't seem to work, is not semi-transparent in the game after reconverting to patch file.
Or can I do this from a hex hack instead?
Also, I've mentioned this before and so far haven't seen an answer, has anyone successfully decrypted an .FEU file yet?
And, has anyone worked out how to re-enable the command console?
Hi guys, would it be possible for someone to combine the better scopes, extra attachments, ballistics and unlocked second island weapons into one compilation please?
Thanks in advance if this is possible...
