About this mod

Shells and bullets remain active for a much greater period of time (15 minutes)

Permissions and credits
// Preamble

A modification of the mod by @Joshuahoeth which you can find here. His mod does not work on the Steam version, so i decided to fix that for my own Steam copy of the game. Then i thought why not upload the mod for anybody that may need it (after kindly asking permission from Joshuahoeth of course).

// Features 

Bullets and shells will remain active in the game world for 900 seconds / 15 minutes with interaction physics fully enabled, instead of almost immediately disappearing after 4 seconds in vanilla game. On my mid-level machine i haven't noticed the slightest FPS change even with 100s of bullets on the floor. In other words, it helps with immersion. 

// Installation

1. Extract the contents of the downloadable archive. Now you should have a "Shells_Stay" folder
2. Place that folder into a "Mods" folder in the game root directory, eg. "C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Crysis". If the "Mods" folder does not exist, then create it.
3. In order for the mod to be recognizable by Steam, you must launch the game with a custom configuration target. So go to Steam, right click on the game and select "Properties". On the main panel that appears click "Set Launch Options" and type: -MOD Shells_Stay
4. Launch the game from Steam there and enjoy.

Tested with latest Steam version, on Windows 8.1 64bit. Also works with other popular mods, such as Tactical Expansion.
