    Description:  This mod started out when I was learning how to mod JC2.  I've included aspects of some other mods, which I've noted in credits/changes.  Also fixed some bugs combining them, and not to mention my own 'tweaks' to various other aspects of the game:  Weapons, Effects, Enemies, Gameplay, Spawns, etc...  This mod is intended for fun, and learning as well - I've included all modified sources, as well as comments in the .xml code wherever I could so others could see what was changed.  The .bin files are also NOT locked, but I'd recommend using the .xml as it might be cleaner/easier to read.  Thanks for looking, enjoy!

    -You need all DLC.
    -If running ANY other mods, back them up and start with a FRESH (empty) dropzone folder.
    -Unpack the 7z archive to your Just Cause 2 folder (not just copy it there, that will do nothing good).
    -Dropzone, DLC and archives_win32 mods are included - no need to (re)create any folders.

    Changes (see readme file inside for more info):
    -Populated Salad island - DLC items, and some traps.
    -Added some 'Colonel Invalidnick' battles across Panau (roughly 10x), also he respawns.

  • speaker_notes Installation

    -Backup your DLC, and start with an empty dropzone (I don't know of compatability with other stuff, but feel free to try), and any blackmarket mods from archives_win32 folder. -Unpack this archive to your Just Cause 2 install folder (it had both the DLC and dropzone folders already setup). -Play JC2. -blow stuff up. -Rinse, repeat.
