Armour Reinforcement Mod for Call of Chernobyl 1.5.
This addon rebalances outfits and helmets based on stats from Call of Pripyat. Features several classes depending on armour value:
Inspired by my first playthrough, aka "Cardboard Armour Gameplay". Despite toting a fully upgraded exoskeleton with 2 armour-enhancing artefacts on I repeatedly fell to OHKs in late game. You may avoid my frustration with this little addon.
The differences between outfits are actually meaningful now. While you should not jump into crossfire thinking that you are invincible anyway, with this addon you can actually sustain a few hits and survive long enough to take cover and heal up.
Instal the aforementioned addons first, then this one. Overwrite files. Apply the patch if required. Enjoy!
