*** PLEASE NOTE - THERE WILL BE A NEW PACK SHORTLY WHICH FIXES BUGS. IF YOU HAVE LIMITED BANDWIDTH, WAIT FOR THE NEW PACK. ***
It's finally here. After three months of hard work, the FFUR team have finally completed their highly anticipated modification for Operation Flashpoint.
The FFUR mod replaces every Bohemia Interactive Studios unit in the game with community-based models, adds new effects and scripts, and also includes a multiplayer version.
There are six configurations to choose from, from configs for the fastest PCs to slowest. There is also an additional sky textures pack which you can choose to install.
Quote:After three months of hard work, we're honoured to present to you the FFUR 5.0 Woodland Pack. Its objective:
To give Operation Flashpoint a touch of 21st century creativity, making one of the best simulations ever made one thousand percent better than before by replacing and enhancing all the original Bohemia Interactive Studios units and effects with superior ones whilst keeping the game's theme in 1985.
Before I introduce the full list of enhancements I would like to thank both the OFP: Cold War Crisis community and Bohemia Interactive Studios for creating a game that has done what all too few games do - stood the test of time, and inspired many to create and improve both the game, and themselves.
After much hard work we are finally able to present the FFUR 5.0 Woodland version. The entire Mod Project has been completely reworked in order to provide as many new enhancements as possible without compromising game performance in any way. Yes! We believe that this latest version adds NO significant lag to the normal game, whilst providing vastly superior visuals and playability! We've Bug-Hunted this version to death, and we're pretty sure that any residual problems you may encounter will be due to inherent limitations of the game engine itself, and NOT because of our endeavours!
So once again, enjoy playing. Soon we'll release desert and winter conversions too, so you can enjoy all these superior FFUR enhancements in desert and winter-themed missions too!
Please read the list of features carefully. Comments, suggestions and feedback are, as ever, always welcome.
To install, simply run the .exe file you download.
