  1. Hi Jackie,

    I’m listed on farcry.crymod.com as Jackette and I’m an absolute technical NOOB which means I know nothing about modding.

    I’m trying to learn and implement my first mod for Far Cry 1. In looking through old post to see if I could find anything helpful I found one on creating sharks in the game. I’d like to be able to make them to actually be on Jack’s and Val’s side so that they attack only their enemies when they’re lured to the water. Is this possible?

    Any advice would be much appreciated, also if I have any other questions, may I ask you? I won’t be too bothersome I promise.

    Cheers,

    Jackette
