    It's hard not to post a ton of screenshots from Crysis. In the excavation pic, notice the big spool BFG'd 50 feet into the air.

    Damn, Deusxmachina!

    That CAN'T be "vanilla" Crysis! What mods/paks are you using?

    Of course. Figured if I'm going to take a screenshot it should try to be interesting, and if I post it on a forum it should be even more so. Here's a bunch more Crysis ones if anyone cares. It was hard not to post more here, but I didn't want to put up two full pages of one game.

    http://allyoucanupload.webshots.com/b/2072198040012577980

    Here's two "real" Crysis youtube videos I noticed the other day. Even with the youtube downconverting you can see how crazy it looks.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znCwkb9m570&fmt=18
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=rXdeC-SMduc&feature=related

    Those videos use the Natural Mod. EDIT: the first one for sure uses a player-made map. I don't think the single player looks like that even with Natural Mod. For Crysis newbies, like I was recently, here's some mod basics that others may or may not agree with, but it's basics:

    Natural Mod is a "time of day" mod that looks pretty darn real. Seems to up the blue a lot, and I think adds fog and things. I never actually tried it because of reading of problems trying to uninstall it.

    Ultima(something) mod is a "time of day" mod. Gives the sun and things more of a Hawaii "yellow/orange" feel than Natural Mod. Some people say Natural Mod looks more real, some say the Ultima looks more real. I'm guessing Natural Mod actually looks more true to life for most people, but it's a video game so real life might not be the most interesting to look at.
    ----------------------------------
    Cuban mod. Has five settings, but no one uses #5 since 4 looks as good. 4 disables fps hits such as blur, but you can add things like that back in if you want. Cuban tried to find the best options while keeping max fps.

    Taowolf mod. Looks great, but has crazy bright HDR. There is a lite version for less HDR, but you can change the setting yourself anyway with notepad. You will need to do the DX9 hack to enable Very High settings in XP, but it still looks great with "only" High. Super easy to install and uninstall since it's only one file to add or delete. If you want to play with a quick mod, try this one. The HDR will make you think you're playing a different game.

    HP mod. A maxed version of Taewolf mod, more or less. Basically has every option turned on including the kitchen sink. Whether you can see or even like many of those options is debateable.

    There are more, but those are the most popular ones I looked into. Cuban mod and Ultima TOD come together with an installer which also does the DX9/DX10 hack. You can use a TOD mod with the other "effects" mods. After playing around a bit, I settled on Cuban/Ultima "CCC" pack for ease of use and possibly fps. Though, the HDR looked a little flat to me, (especially after seeing Taowolf mod :)), so I raised that, the shadows looked way too sharp and solid so I softened those since the sharp ones looked way unnatural to me, and that's pretty much it.

    If you can't run the game well, I read putting everything on low but object detail and shaders on high still looks rather impressive.

    Quick game review: First half fun, second half on rails and not so fun. Being forced to pilot the helicopter and whatever were painful, and cheat codes won't even help. There are mods coming out that will have mechwarrior and Star Wars and Jurassic Park stuff and things. I can see more people buying Crysis for the third-party mods than for the actual game.

    I was going to try a different game soon, so figured I'd install Natural Mod and play around a little more quick. I started a new game to make sure it kicked in and played the first part. Assuming it kicked in, I didn't like it much at all. Same thing I gathered from other screenshots of it: lots more blue, and while things do look rather natural, the Ultima TOD mod looks (perhaps less) natural too but with a blazing sun. I like the Ultima Hawaii look.

    Tried the Taowolf mod again. The glow is like having loud exhaust on a car -- fun only in short doses. And I don't care for the blur and things. Went back to my modded Cuban mod and gained a couple fps in the process. The below pics are with Taowolf and Ultima. I like to call the first pic "What do you mean I can't park here?" The rest of this pack of 10 pics are here:
