A largescale singleplayer map with multiple objectives and two alternate endings.

I tend to stray from custom crysis maps. To many bad ones out there that are not worth the time you spend downloading, playing and then deleting. Not this map. I spent plenty of time running through the multiple paths you can choose from to complete the level. Not only is this one of the most entertaining maps to play but it is incredibly detailed and well structured. You don't find yourself half way into the map saying, "OK now wtf is this all about. This has NOTHING to do with what I was doing before..." Don't forget, getting to the center of the map is only half the battle. You have to get back out as well... I am not the original author of this map. I have received permission from Hélder Pinto aka [HP] (www.helderpinto.com) to release this map on his behalf. We are both aware of how to spell Volcano vs Vulcano... Features * Free roam on Crysis taken to another level. A single main objective is given, It's up to you to decide which path you want to take, and how do you want to achieve it. * Two diferent geographic endings, depending on how the player get's to the main objective. * A wide range of arsenal spreaded throughout the island, and three supply drops hiden on remote locations of the island. * Around 1h:30m to 2h average play time (playtimes vary on your style of gaming). Installation 1. Go to your Crysis game folder -> Electronic Arts -> Crytek -> Crysis -> Game -> Levels or... C:\Program Files -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> crysis -> Game -> Levels 2. Copy the "Vulcano" folder from the downloaded file into the current game folder (Game/Levels). 3. Start Crysis 4. Open console and type in "con_restricted 0" (without "") to allow access to console commands 5. Load the map by typing in "map Vulcano" (Without "") and press Enter. Enjoy, or don't. Either way I made it to the center of the map without being seen, without killing anyone, without using any custom configs or cheats, while playing on the Bauer difficulty... Can you?

    Excellent map,crytek quatily.Been playing it a good 2 hours now and Im still just working my way around the outside of the island.

    But what it is with the enemy A.I,sometimes groups of em just go wondering into a corner bumpin into a wall,seems strange and dont remember it happening in the main game,maybe it did I dunno,doesnt spoil the fun in the slightest tho.

    Cant wait to complete this one and then start on his other the map 'the resort'

    great map!! cheers :D

    Thanks for the assessment. Apparently the AI was a bit tricky to work with. I saw this a few times as well. Unfortunately it's one of those random glitches that comes with custom maps I suppose.

    Thanks again!

    And I'm going to guess you've never even opened Sandbox 2. All the shit you're saying he didn't do, he probably took more time to do than you when you're waiting in line at the DMV. The number of amazing maps for Crysis has nothing to do with the difficulty it takes to make them, it just shows the discretion the official Crysis sites take to make sure there aren't any terrible maps for such a great game. Every other website that posts maps rips 'em straight from Crymod or has users re-upload them, and 99% of the time they'll never ever see the light of an original map. This map is probably even better-looking and better-playing than the official ones, and you know what I did before I typed this sentence? I ACTUALLY PLAYED IT. In Crysis, and then opened it up in Sandbox 2. You can't begin to imagine what the flowgraphs look like. That, paired with the absolute detail (every tuft of grass you see exactly where and how you see it), most certainly does NOT make him a slacker.

    Anyone slamming this map is dumb. You shouldn't rate it a 10 either because he/she spent 6 months on it, but the detail is fucking amazing. The replayability was what made me give it a 10/10. There are so many ways to do the level, it's amazing. It keeps the nonlinear feeling of Crysis. It is almost as if it is part of a map pack that Crytek released themselves.

    By the way, anyone trying to use Sandbox 2 would shoot themselves :D

    I've seen this map over on Game artist. net...


    Seeing the map vs playing it are two very big differences. Have you played it?

    I thought to myself, sure, he can press his mouse pretty good and let the engine do all the work for him...


    Not to many maps out there were this isn't the case. For the most part this is usually how a map is made.

    But now, saying its so much better than other levels for Crysis, i think I'm going to voice my opinion.


    Just so we're clear I'm saying that it is a lot better than most custom maps. If you've played many custom maps for Crysis then you will see where I'm coming from.

    But how hard was it really? Did you make any of those models? Did you rotate them so they sat firmly on the hill side? Did you rotate those trees so that they didn't all face the same direction? Did you spend ages getting the alpha layers on the terrain to look right with each other? Did you have to spend ages tweaking the light colour, intensity, angle? The fog?


    Keep in mind I didn't make this map. But yes, it is actually very hard. It's not as simple as creating a landscape, brushing on some texture, adding trees and AI. The flowgraphs in Crysis are very intense. You can't throw something together like you can with Far Cry 2 and to be honest, I wish it was. I spent a few hours one day just trying to make a decent looking road that fit a basic landscape. Like I said, I wish it were as simple as the Far Cry 2 map editor but it is most definitely not.

    In short, did the engine do over half the work for you? Looking at the number of horrible looking maps for the Source engine compared to the number of amazing ones, and then looking at the number of amazing looking maps for the Crysis engine and the number of horrible looking ones, id say its pretty darn easy to make something that looks like this.


    The guy who made this map spent 6 months on it. If you play through the map you will see the type of detail I'm talking about. I'm not talking about pretty trees that are well places, I'm talking about detail in map design and gameplay. If you spend one hour in the editor you will see how much fucking detail this map has. The levels physical design alone must have taken over 2-3 months...

    Now after saying all that, i must sound pretty much like and asshole and really disrespectful to the time you spent making this.


    I don't think your an asshole. Your a person with an opinion. If your post was simply, "This map sucks" then I would think your an asshole. Your feedback is appreciated.

    I have no comment on how your map looks or plays, but after reading your main screen shot, it says that you can have destroy a North Korean Nuclear weapons disposal facility. Now why would anyone want to destroy a disposal facility...if anything, that is a target you wouldn't want to destroy...just saying continuity wise, it doesn't make sense.


    What better place to hide a nuclear weapon? Your putting to much thought into something trivial.

    I downloaded this from CryMod, and I have to say, this was the most beautiful, interactive, and replayable Crysis map I have ever played.
