Small Discription
This mod was created with the propose of Faction war zone wich every faction want to conquer camps with the option to player join\leave a faction, an improved AI, bring Clear Sky faction from S.t.a.l.k.e.r.: Clear Sky and another features.


AI
   

The NPC's AI on S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl on Clear Sky Faction Mod are able to loot bodies, weapons and outfits, use grenade launchers, throw grenades, heal their-selfs and their comrades , attach weapons addons (scopes, grenades launchers and silencers) on their weapons and choose better weapons to use in combat. 
 

Faction Wars 
The faction wars is based in multi communities of stalkers and mutants on stalkers camps and mutant lairs also the stalkers and mutants can move to other camp\lair when they want.
You can join an leave an faction whenever you want (Some dialogs in Faction Leaders such as Prof. Shakarov and the Duty Leader only apear after complete a few storyline tasks).
If you are friend with an stalker, you can "hire" him to cooperate with you and you can ask him to leave whenever you want.

HUD & UI
The HUD used in this mod is HUD & UI Mod 1.5 with a few tweaks.

Weather System 
In this mod , we used Dynamic Weather mod version 0.9.4. Probably, you will notice that the most of times it is raining. 

Trading System
The stalker trading system (In normal stalkers, not at the traders npc's) in this mod as the follow parameters:
- Stalkers sell items in high prices and buy in low prices;
- If you are friend with an stalker, he will reduce his selling prices;
The Traders sell\buy prices are a bit balanced, their supplies depends of the area where the trade is. 

Weapon Arsenal & Balistics 
The CSFM Weapon Arsenal is an selected choose of weapons from the Arsenal Mod, Gosuke Weapons Packs and some weapons mini-mods that I found in AMK forum and in other forums.
The weapons balistics are balanced according to VikingStalker Weapon Overhaul for CSFM (Thanks alot VikingStalker) 

Patch Compatibility
This mod only supports Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl Patch 1.0005. You may see that in one read me that may be compatible with 1.0004 but you need a xrGame.dll from bin folder in CSFM core that only works in 1.0005.

Mod Compatibility with others mod
This mod won't work with mod compilations, total conversion mods and other mods that does modifies scripts, configs, all.spawn and others things.

Hello stalkers,
This is going to be little big September Update talking about my current life event, Patch progress and his future.

Univercity!

First of all, I am going to talk about little bit of a recent event from my personal life.
As a few of you know, I'm 17 years old and recently I finished up 12th grade so I decided to apply to a few univercities, to and degree course of Informatic Engineering, and I was choosen in one univercity. 
Due this fact, I will be with less time to dedicate to the mod developing since I'll spending more time with the classes, studying and the praxes ( you can read more about praxes in here : En.wikipedia.org ).

Patch Progress!

The second point of this September update#1, the Mod Patch#1 progression and future plans for it.

Since I released the beta patches, I have been fixing and changes some little details like missing weapons names (if you find any description missing just post it in this page forum in Bugs sections) and changing other details like restoring some particles effects configurations in some anomalies.

So what's already been done :

- Fixed nameless weapons

- Added Clear Sky Faction script support in faction_changes.script for join/leave and reset 

- Restored a few anomalies effects from vaniila 

So what's in Work In progress:

- A progressive trader content and discounts based on if you have completed certain Storyline Quests and if join to either Duty or Freedom.

- Dialogs part for player be able to leave\join Clear Sky and reset Clear Sky faction relations 

- Fix the Blowout Sequence

Planned Features :

- Mercenary Base at Agroprom Institute (Replacing Military personel) with traders, Mechanics and probably a Medic

- Dark Valley Bandit Base will be avaible if you join to them

- A overhaul in the game economy

- More side-quests

Future Patches & Versions Releases!

Since Univercity made a big changes in my life, I've talked with Vikingstalker (Many things such as weapons rebalanced and traders and others stuff was not possible without him. Thank you alot Vikingstalker!) and we both agreed that I'll be released BETA Release Candidates versions of the patch if there is enough new content, fixes and changes to allow me to upload.

I think this is all for this September Update#1
Good Hunting Stalkers,
xRatx

I really enjoy this mod it has a great amount of content and is not broken in the balance department like a lot of mods where you get 1 shotted with a PM from 100m, i also like the UI and how compact it is nothing is removed just like vanilla but made better but i have a bit of feed back if you are interested in hearing it.

1- The shotguns seem way too powerful and as accurate as a sniper rifle (double barrel versions) they can hit you and take 50% or 70% of your health at 90m with buckshot i could kill Exo skeleton guys from 70m with 2 buckshot from a TOZ.

2- When ever a shotgun is fired by me or an NPC and the pellets hit a very close wall or object the game crashes.

3- Blow outs happen way to fast as in they start in seconds and you cant get anywhere before they hit, 1min time to escape would be nice.

4- The game crashes often after 15mins or more.

I still enjoy this mod.

Hello cordenand,

1. We will take a look at that.

2. Can you replicate that crash and post the crash-log (Read : Moddb.com ) ?

3. I've changed that in my current build of patch#1 for 2.4.2.

4. We are trying to solve that issue :)

Are you using the Smart Marauder optional from 2.4.2 with the beta patch? If so, do not use it, it isn't compatible with the BETA patch released. (Revert back to death_manager.script from the beta patch)

Great mod but there are some things that need tweaking:

1)Harmless Emissions bug: I dunno if it's just me but there are times when the emissions don't affect me. Like there was a time that I was outside when an emission occurred. I thought I was done for but after the whole thing, I was completely unharmed.

2)Randomly spawning NPCs: Ok I know that this mod aims for the whole "dominate the zone with our faction" sort of gameplay, but it's ridiculous that enemy NPCs just spawn smack-dead in front the players face. Like mercs suddenly spawning in front of my face or a bandit suddenly spawning right next to me in the rookie village.

3)Better companion AI: The AI of the companion is actually very good but also dumb at times. When he follows you, there are many times when he doesn't attack enemies in range. He just runs back and forth, aims, runs some more, maybe shoots a bit, then runs around again. That makes companions nearly useless in combat. Also their anomaly pathing needs some work. I don't know if this is possible but I hope it could be. Because it is annoying as hell when you have 2 really strong companions (who can survive against any opponent) but they end up getting killed because they walk straight in an anomaly -__-

But still, this mod isn't just 10/10, it's 100/10 :D

Hello TheLoneWalker,

1. In what maps\levels does this bug happens?

2. What you are experience may be a NPC traveling and that NPC turned online (This happens mostly near level changers).

3. That's the problem of the current mod that this mod is using. AI can be a bit bugged. The only fix for this is replace that mod by another one that does the same.

Tnx for the reply xRatx,

1. So far, it happened in the Wild Territory (near the crash site of the Ecologists), in Cordon (where Fox's house is) and in Pripyat (near the stadium). But they happen very rarely so it's not even bothersome. Plus, it could be an error on my part.

2. Oh I see. I guess that makes perfect sense; considering the mechanics of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

3. What mod can you recommend? Personally, the companion system is very useful but I dont want to lose my companions simply because they walk into am anomaly. Can you recommend? :)

1. I'll check them.

3. First, You will edit scripts (Do it ONLY IF you know how properly editing and merge scripts). I'd recommend KamikaZze's "Companions" 1.9C ,

So where is the Clear Sky base? Do they even have one in this mod? I joined Clear Sky through xRatx but I rarely see any other Clear Sky members. I saw one but he got raped by a bunch of Freedom thugs. So where is the CS base (if they happen to have one) and how do I get there?

There is no Clear Sky base so far.
