Mission III - Crystal end

Image


End-Of-Year Review 2010

This year I started with the totally new and inovative mod PSP Remote where you can connect the PSP and Crysis together to gather a totally new gaming experience. A few weeks later, an Irrlicht3D port for PSP called SEELE was released, which wasn't open to public anyway (due to the use of the official PSP devkit), but there was a small preview video on youtube (SEELE - Engine). In sommer this year I finally release the next episode of Crybusters - Mission II - Cryst end evil (see below). Beside those project 2 term papers have been released. Now where I'm attending the masters degree I don't have much time left. Atm there is one project left for crysis wars - The Dam. Furthermore I'm developing a own 2D (C++) Engine based on OpenGL ES 2.0 which is already working on PC/OSX/iOS. Therefore I released Crybusters Mission III today.

Crybusters Series - A non success?

Badly for all fans of Crybusters Mission III will never be finished because of my lack of time. But to support all modders out there, I have release the last 2 levels as they are. Very WIP but with many places created in hundreds of hours by me. Big THX to LIAM for creating the Snoey Hunt village fight place - I'm sorry that it was never released!
Crybusters Mission III (three) is the 3rd part of the Crybusters MOD series for Crysis/Crysis wars. After successfully releasing Mission I and Mission II with more than 20k downloads there was some piece missing to finish the story around the Crybusters. However, due to lack of time and interest of the community in the project I decided to release the 2 levels as they are.
The levels are not playable ingame but in the editor. You can find more information about the MOD on Fantasyhaze.com. To use those levels you have to download Crybusters Mission II and add the levels to the mod levels directory. To get a impression what have been archived until now I have created a short Trailer with music from Erik Ekholm from Brickwall Audio. Thank you Erik for supporting me with so many good tracks, you rock!

Mission II - Cryst and Devil

Image

Ghosts and Aliens - call them SNOEYS
Finally after 3.5 years of development we from Fantasyhaze can proudly present you the next part of Crybusters - Mission II - Cryst and Devil, a singleplayer total conversation for Crysis Wars.
We really hope you like it, keep in mind that this is a fan project and has nothing to do with any real game development - it's a product of many man hours, made in free time and with a lot love in detail for all assets. This mod started with one person and ended with one person - as so many projects do -. But with help of the community and a lot of great assets from all team members of Fantasyhaze and of the Crysis community, we created a full mod in the end . At this place I wanted to thank all of my team mates and community members which helped to make the mod. For a detailed Credit list, please check the credits ingame or the help file in the root mod folder.


Video Trailer:
If you want to get some first insight of the mod, feel free to watch the trailer.

Development:
A long time before Crysis was released, in August 2006 team leader David ---___db___--- Berger started the first concepts for Crybusters. At this point it was known as Ghostbusters for Crysis, but after a long mail session with Sony, we were forced to create our own story, and so we did. A few months later Ghostbusters the video games was announced and so we knew why we had to change our story. However Crysis Demo editor was released and ---___db___--- started to map the basics of the mod as you can see in the picture in the end we had to skip many many thing and as you can see in the second pictures. This was a pity but necessary to finish mod we skipped more than 80% as you can see in the second picture :

Image Image


The mod was started with demo editor and was edited a lot in vanillia crysis afterwards. One day we skipped a lot because the map was much too big, but still 20% stayed whereas only 5% have been used in the end which can be played in tenor_of_energy level now. There are still 3 level which have not been finished until now, but maybe you will see them either in a few months or later on with CryEngine3 as standalone game for free - if crytek will release it as free standalone sdk, mentioned a few days before-.


Story:
Attention! - incomming transmission!
R.E.A.C.T.O.R 1, the communications system of Crybusters broadcast a warning and the Crybusters starts off their machines. Markus, Lucas, Mia and Nasha are awaiting the status report of R.E.A.K.T.O.R 1.
It finnaly informs them that the submitter has the same communication sequence as the submitter from mission I, which was 20 years ago. "Load mission I", Lucas commanded.
Loading Mission I:



Mission I - A Crystmas Story
Christmas Eve, a distress call was reaceived from the Cryham Orphanage by R.E.A.C.T.O.R 1.
The caretaker of the orphanage had called the Crybusters. "The house is a lie! It kills us all!", he had screamed before the connection broke.
Our heros; Lucas, Markus and Mia are now on their way to find out what has happened...
End of transmission I ended loading real world.

Mission II - Cryst and Evil
Christmas Eve, 20 years later Crybusters are on their way to a military station near Fantasyhaze World. Dr. Yelcow sent an emergency call to R.E.A.C.T.O.R. 1 the communication system of Crybusters. After they have review their first mission from about 20 years the found out that this strange orphanage is very near to Fantasyhaze World too. Our heros; Lucas, Markus and Mia are now on their way to find out what has happened this time, and they didn't know but their end is near ...

Memories. :love:

Changed quite a bit since I saw the level the last time. Definitely going to play it. I think I still have the wip screenshots of my skipped level floating somewhere on my rig.

I love that you didn't give up on this. :)

Looking good, but the selection screen needs to be simplified, and the plasma "splats" should be reworked / replaced.
