Far Cry 5 Resistance Mod
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆


Far Cry 5 is an amazingly beautiful game, where Montana’s original world is very accurately reproduced. With a very powerful game engine and a developed playground. But, as is often the case with large projects, much remained behind the scenes and was not included in the final release, and a lot of things were implemented not in the way users would like to see. And after completing all the missions outside the main scenario, the game becomes lifeless and empty.

The presented mod is designed to solve many of these problems and add features not included in the final release of the game. Make the game interesting and exciting even outside the main scenario. Far Cry 5 - deserves more and the Resistance Mod gives you this opportunity.

You will be able to control the weather and time, respawn enemies and participants in the resistance, defend roadblocks, change spawn modes: from war to quiet nirvana, hunting and fishing. Add new and unrealized items to the store. Edit weapon parameters and rewards. And much more. Here is a list of the main options (packages) of the mod, also, you don't have to run them all, just select what you want:

Installation and Usage

The mod uses a convenient installer to select packages of the mod and install them into the game. The installer is localized for several languages, there is a built-in Help and a brief wiki of modding terms.

  1. Download zip, unpack it and run FC5ModInstaller.exe.
  2. Mod Installer will try find the patch.fat (mostly if you have Uplay or Steam version), but if it will be unsucessfull, then manually find the installation directory of the game, go to the path: data_final\pc\ and select the file patch.fat. So you specify the working folder to the installer.
  3. The installer will ask about a backup copy of the files (9 GB). Be sure to agree. If something goes wrong you can always restore the original state of the game (button "Restore").
  4. Select the required packages in the list (selected packages are marked with a yellow frame and ✓). If the selected package is highlighted in red, it means that there is a package conflict, these packages cannot be enabled in the same time. Scroll through the list, find the conflicting package and disable it.
  5. Install the packages using the “Install” button.
  6. Play the game.

Note: Items 1, 2 and 3 must be completed only at the first start of the installer.

Backup also your saves!

To install third-party or your own author packages, just drag and drop the package file with the extension .a3 onto the installer window. Confirm the installation, do not forget to select he in the list and install.

In the section named "Base packages" there are packages which don't change any visible things in the game, these packages are required by another packages. They should be enabled by default.


Updating the mod

If a new version of the mod is released, you should download it, because there can be fixed important bugs.

How to update the mod
  • Go to mod website and download latest version.
  • Unzip downloaded file. DO NOT OVERWRITE OLD VERSION!!!
  • Copy Settings.xml file from old version to the new version.
  • Run the Mod Installer and click on Install.
  • Update is completed.


Note: Updating is completely up to you - if you don't want new version, you don't need to update the mod.


ModifiedFiles directories

Since Mod Installer version 3.25.2 there are several ModifiedFiles directories.
The reason of separating was when the mod is updated, you always must find and copy over your downloaded a3 files or your own edited a3 files in ModifiedFiles directory.
In the new version, ModifiedFiles is originally empty and you can place a3 files here and then copy whole ModifiedFiles directory to a new version.

If you want to edit any package from Resistance mod, just copy it from ModifiedFiles_Resistance directory and place it to ModifiedFiles, Mod Installer automatically loads the one from ModifiedFiles and you will also have backup of original package.

Do not edit or place new files in ModifiedFiles_BasePackages or ModifiedFiles_Resistance!!! Otherwise they will be ignored.

Also, if you want to have your own ModifiedFiles directory with your mod, please contact me and I send you info how to do it.



ModifiedFiles - originally empty, here comes all a3 files you downloaded outside Resistance mod, or your own packages

ModifiedFiles_BasePackages - contains base packages which are needed by other packages

ModifiedFiles_Resistance - contains files from Resistance mod, also place here all a3 files which you download from Resistance mod page

Fast Fixes

  • If you want use the mod, you need the game version 1.011 or the latest game patch 1.014
  • If you have your game installed in "Program Files" directory, run the Mod Installer as Administrator.
  • If you have Windows 7 and the Mod Installer doesn't want to start, please download KB2533623 for Windows 7.
  • If the Mod Installer keeps crashing, shutdown all apps like RivaTuner.
  • If you still have problems with running the Mod Installer, try delete directory "C:\Users\<your Windows profile>\AppData\Local\Temp\.net\FC5ModInstaller". This is possible bug in .NET Core which can be fixed only by Microsoft.
  • If you installed the mod and it got reset on second run, please check if Uplay or Steam didn't verified game files. If so, disable auto updates (Steam).

Development Background

I started this mod, because there weren't many mods which changed important things in the game. Also, at first release of this mod, the last big mod was 3 months old and it didn't contain latest game patch, so I decided to start new mod with more changes and updated game files.

This mod doesn't contain files like download-copy-play. You will get some source files and program that allow you to edit and pack game sources.

It is due to Ubisoft's decision about game files sizes. So file that must be edited has 9 GB - who want to download 9 GB every time for every mod? So I and my co-author RtroActiv (he left the mod's author team in Aug 2019) created mod and program that is much smaller than patch.dat. Also, by this way you can select what you want in the game.


Known issues
List of known issues. Maybe these bugs will be fixed in future.

  • Drubman Marina and US Auto don't have cult music after liberating - still don't known why
  • Some content is still locked - I have done some live events, so for me they are unlocked; if you have some locked, write to comments
  • Some objects at outposts can be overlaped with cult decorations - this cannot be fixed - file has unknown binary structure
  • Some enemies won't attack - caused by Random NPC Weapons, NPC sometimes doesn't attack you, it's because there maybe missing NPC config entry for that weapon, if I find a bad weapon, I'll fix it
  • Unreleased weapons has wrong icon and name - you must know that these weapons were created without icons and don't have created language entries, because they should never have appeared in the game
  • Unreleased weapons store stats - these stats has nothing to do with real weapon properties, they are just for info
  • combat knife take down sound - sounds like baseball bat takedown
  • Weather System - morning fog can cause in some places very high dense fog, rainy weather can cause overexposed (white) view of items in store
