Ziggy's Mod is the biggest mod available for Far Cry 3. It completely rebalances almost every aspect of the game to offer a more challenging, realistic and immersive experience for the player. This mod removes all of the arbitrary restrictions on the game's content, giving you access to everything from the beginning and allowing you the freedom to choose how you want to play.
Since the first version of this mod was released in early 2013, I have worked with the great Nexus Mods community along with some of the best Far Cry 3 modders to improve this mod and turn it into what it is today.
» New content: Added a fifth tier of gear upgrade crafting recipes, added the Type 10 pistol shotgun from multiplayer, added two new melee weapons, added seven new signature weapons, added unique effects for signature weapons, added muzzle brake attachment, added long-range scope attachment, added two new colors of night sight attachments
» Freedom: Removed all skill locks, unlocked all weapons and syringes from game start, enabled all attachments for all weapons they fit on, increased maximum allowed attachments for most weapons, unlocked the southern island from game start

» Immersive UI: Removed all unnecessary HUD popups, removed on-screen interaction prompts, cleaned up the appearance of several menus, added cleaner icons for the world map, replaced the minimap with a simple compass

This mod makes hundreds upon hundreds of changes and tweaks to the game, making it impossible to list everything in the description. What is written above are only some of the highlights of what this mod offers. You will just have to install the mod and see for yourself what else has changed.
