Description: BLOOD OIL:

This mod is a community made mod,and has change hands so many times, and has had so many people involved in it up to this point. Nobody seems to own this mod and there is nobody in charge of it too. So thnx to all that have chipped in to finish it off.

Blood Oil is situated in Nigeria, and is nothing more than a new mod, and some fun to play.

Searching YouTube for Blood Oil can reveal some eye opening scenes.

SAD's (SPECIAL ACTIVITES DIVISION of the CIA) have been called in to rescue a group of Government officials, being held hostage at a Nigerian gas plant. Several turn of events, will lead the SAD team through a variety of missions, to completing there objective.

Recognise the civilians, they do carry arms sometimes, and will fire if threatened.

* Inside the main Blood Oil directory, there are 2 zip files. (bo_full.7z & bo_reduced.7z). Do not delete the files. If you are experiencing performance issues, simply right click bo_reduced.7z and extract here. This will replace all the large textures throughout blood oil to 512 x 512, also it will replace all the environment files with reduced versions.To switch back just right click the bo_full.7z and extract here, done. This should cause no issues with saved games or joining others servers.

* There are no unlocked heros at present, this will hopefully be addressed in a patch after Xmas.

* Not being a part of the original team, I have probably left people out of the credits, this can be fixed also if anyone sends a PM with info.

* SP is set up as a 12 mission Campaign, all Campaign missions begin with BO ( C ) and are also available for Coop.

* All other missions are just some fun extra stuff to compliment the maps accordingly, which begin BO ( M )

* All game modes are available for all maps.

* Fishing village you may notice not being able to shoot anyone when hiding around the grass stacks, I don`t think there is any contact with the map creator, you will need to be aware of this and not TK your whole team trying to throw a frag like I did.

* River ride map (BO M 19) is primarily a TvT map, it is set up for all game modes, but you map experience a few issues with the AI as it has not been set up correct with working levels etc.

Place BO_patch_1_4_b.7z into your mods directory, right click the file and extract here.

Excellent!  So far.  But In the fifth mission (waterfall) when you press F7 to load a save, the system crashes.

Very decent mod, except that it is unstable. Twice now, when trying to deactivate Blood Oil to use a different mod, it has crashed and broken my game entirely, so that it crashes every time after when I try to fire up the game. Both times I had to completely uninstall GR and its expansions, delete all files and folders left behind, then re-install.

It's a top-quality mod, but not worth this headache. It takes up to an hour to restore my game, and each time I have to lose all my saved data. Massive, massive flaw.

One of the best GR mods available.  A great total conversion with top notch AI, maps, weapons, and powerful music.. 5/5!  Thanks go to Tinker for getting this one out.

That's not all true, some games are coelosns only (like metal gear NOT TAKING INTO THE ACCOUNT OF AN EMULATOR). But yes, PC games do offer modifications and some PC only content that enhance your experience with the game.
