Awesome eh?

Some of his notes:

Some notes / advice from the thread:

WATER :

I just want to point out again that the effects are achieved through a combination of many different little touches throughout a spectrum of settings. Not just TimeOfDay (although it's pretty darn important). For example to get some better results for the ocean, I would recommend those settings (in Terrain->Environment->Ocean):

FogColor: 32,48,57
FogColorMultiplier: 32,48,57
FogDensity: 32,48,57

And in OceanAnimation:

WindDirection: 0
Windspeed: 4
Wavespeed: 50
WavesAmount: 2
WaveSizes: 0.5 (for some ugly/weird effect, try 100 )

This comes from the fact that water is of course a colorless liquid, and with those settings you'll achieve a more "transparent" look while retaining a feeling of depth.

TERRAIN:

Basically for the terrain I used a dry grass layer tainted in dark green, and for the vegetation those "game/objects/natural/ground_plants/grass/bigpatch_medium.cgf". Then use "Paint Object" to apply them. That should give you some thick greenish grass. Then of course some small bushes here and there for variety's sake.

Also don't forget, once you painted and added your vegetation, to use File->Generate Surface Textures. Then in this window check High Quality and Calculate Terrain Sky Accessibility. This is extremely important to get some kind of accurate ambient occlusion pass going on (what makes it look more real). But be ready to wait, as it can take several minutes to calculate even for a small map.

From what I read based on the auther of the map's own posts, I'm pretty sure his intention was only to show how good the CryTek II engine could be, as he said somewhere that he won't actually release a practical map to the public for a long time, as his current maps aren't really maps, just landscapes of eyecandy.

I can get lost so easily in this game. I mean in the awesome surroundings. It's as close to real as I have ever experienced. I finished the game yesterday and I already want crysis 2.

The online play hasn't impressed me yet.

No, I think what you're seeing is someone managing to push the editor to create scenes that, to me, are pretty photorealistic.

Whether or not he maps the island is another thing, but he'd be a good choice for any of us with a level idea but lack the skills to make a natural environment around it...

You could go to the map authors site:

There are more pictures of his map. But it was only created for some nice scenery.
