    Idol included a version that "just" cuts the prices down to 10% of the original. So you still need to pay some cash, but can call down any cool toys without problem.

    It also staggers all the unlocks so that you get more and more fun toys to spawn in the further you progress in the game. It's this version of the mod that I personally use when I play.

    OR
    Just Cause 2 modpack v1.1
    http://finalack.com/Idol/sr2/jc2_modpack_v1.1_IdolNinja.rar

    The original has everything free and unlocked from the start. v1.1 was a request by Stormwatcher for setting all prices at 10% and also unlocks the extra black market stuff with chaos (game progression) instead of being all available right at the start like the original.

    NOTE: You can probably just grab blackmarket.bin from either mod if you don't want the rest of the stuff.

    Cool. I was just about to ask for this. The agency should pay for all Rico's toys anyway. I just got the game as well as the DLC on gamersgate, so it'll be nice to have an unlimited supply of monster trucks. :D

    Also, I had a question. Does anyone ever get random chaos when they play? For example I was base jumping off a tower and a random message said gas pump chaos and I had heat all of a sudden. It's not a big issue. I'm just wondering what could have caused it? I wasn't using any guns or grenades and I didn't ditch any rides. Another time I was flying for awhile and got a message about kills, but this could have been one of those messages just telling you of different achievements or stats throughout the game. I'm not sure.

    Sometimes enemies just blow themselves up. Or start randomly shooting. Or the gangs start fighting, and you get the chaos.

    Panauan government develops hovercraft technology. Scorpio blows it up.

    I came across this glitch over the weekend. Why haven't more console games been released with a "capture video/upload to YouTube" feature? Did YouTube complain about all the incredible videos this game generated?

  • subediisubedii Registered User regular
    Probably because video capture / conversion takes additional system resources. Resources which most console games are making full use of already.

    Is that on the PS3 version? Because I'llf totally buy it again off PSN if it is.

    So the one stormwatcher requested, is that 10% off on the items or like 10% of what they usually cost? Because I might go with that one since I'd like to just continue to unlock stuff throughout the game rather than all at once.

    steam_sig.png
  • StormwatcherStormwatcher Uee Citizen Record #2051 Über Star CitizenRegistered User regular
    10% of the total cost, so a 1000 credits item will cost 10 credits.

    Ok, cool. Yeah I'm going with that one. I don't want to be spoiled all at once with cool stuff.

    On a side note, is anyone else waiting for more keys from gamersgate? I bought some of the DLC last night and apparently they're out of keys and I'm still waiting today.

    I'm loving the HD clouds and extra grapple length. Besides the pack IdolNinja put together are any other mods worth it? I was looking at some and I'm pretty sure like 99% of them are horrible. How many different kinds of moons do we need that aren't even moons? A McDonald's logo? Seriously?

    They never released the tools or source or whatever they need to do seriously cool mods, did they?

    There was a coop mode mod that was last seen in alpha, and they had managed to get two players into the same world. Although the only footage was of them just driving around without any ai anywhere, which is fair enough because having to change the ai to be able to react to two players sounds pretty difficult and is something to be done a bit later. Not sure what happened to it.

    edit: definately seems to have just dissapeared off the face of the earth. Which is a pity.

    After all the fun I had with this one, the only thing I think I would ask for from JC3 would be multiplayer. I bought mercenaries 2 on 360 back in the day, and that was pretty fun with a buddy. I can't even imagine how ridiculous this would be. Think two grapples would be enough to attach a monster truck to a helicopter? Because that would be super sweet to drop into an enemy base.

    They decided that JC2's engine just wasn't suitable for coop/netplay and abandoned the effort.

    I'm not surprised that turned out to be the case, but they certainly gave it the old college try.

    Installed the modpack recently, and I'm loving it. Super extended grapple and all are awesome. Taking my agency airplane to the ocean and doing an upside-down flight about 4 inches off the water looked preeeetty. 8-> Then I hit a boat. Whoops!

    Avalanche Studios are the guys behind this game and they do own the property. That said, they have stated they intend to make another game in this series but their last known project was Mad Max, to coincide with the movie remake. If anyone can do a Mad Max, its these guys.

    If Saints Row the Third can implement multiplayer co-op, I have faith that it can done in Just Cause 3: Cause Harder. Not saying that I have faith that game will ever be made, but that they could do it.

    Saints Row 2 had multiplayer coop. I don't know if Saints Row did or not.

    SR3, from what I could see, is basically the SR2 engine ported non-shittilly and gussied up a bit with higher res textures, new animations, and a less wonky random car/person generation system.

    Given that JC2 wasn't designed for multiplayer, they'd either have to do some significant work to bring it in, or scrap most/all of it and rewrite it...

    Basically, I'd love to see it happen, but until I see an announcement I wouldn't expect it to happen.

    Or unless the announcement is far enough out that they're throwing out the JC2 engine entirely anyway because it's outdated tech.

    Oh, Mercs 2
    Such a fucking pile of shit. Just Cause 2 does everything M2 tries to do, a does it a billion times better.

    Mercs2 had coop, and coop is fun on almost any game, no matter how shitty, but other than that, it was crap, crap, crap, crap... And really fucking similar to JC2, now that I think of it. Exotic location, rebels and soldiers, two guns at a time, steal any and all vehicles, kill VIPs, find collectables.... They're almost the exact same laundry list of features and gameplay activities, only one was 100% shit, and the other was 100% awesome.

    According to this they don't own the IP.

    Avalanche founder and original concept creator of Just Cause Christofer Sundberg explained to Eurogamer that while the Stockholm-based studio does not own the Just Cause intellectual property, it remains intrinsically linked to it.

    "I can't really comment on the future of Just Cause," he said, "but as we created the IP there is an attachment to the studio even though we don't own the IP."

    Well Sega published Renegade Ops, so I'm guessing Eidos/Square Enix just own the IP and Avalanche are relatively independent.

    So I downloaded the version of that mod that storm requested where the items didn't all unlock at once and they were 10% of the regular price instead of free and I noticed that the DLC I bought is still the normal price in the black market. Is the DLC also free like the other stuff in the black market in the other mod? If so what file do I need to transfer over so I don't overwrite or replace anything else?
