The mod uses a convenient installer to select packages (options) 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 the zip file from here, unpack it and run FCNDModInstaller.exe.
  2. Mod-Installer will try find the game directory (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: bin\ and select the file FarCryNewDawn.exe. So you specify the working folder to the installer.
  3. Select the required packages in the list (selected packages are marked with a purple 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. Click on "Toggle conflicts" button and disable the conflicting packages.
  4. Install the packages using the “INSTALL” button.
  5. 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.
