Clear Skies


Previously known as the 'Faction Fronts Mod', Clear Skies is a large scale modding initiative, to re-design and expand S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky. With the umbrella motive of creating a realistic, graphically superior and entertaining hybrid of the original game concept. Built from the best works the stalker clear sky modding community has to offer, along with the personal works of members from 828 studios. Clear Skies is an all inclusive package, designed towards a single vision, with a consistent level of quality and attention to detail.

First of all before I start with all the news I would like to wish everyone a very happy Easter weekend. I hope you are all having a fantastic day with family and friends. Time has just flown by since I posted the last alpha on moddb and RL commitments have since taken over a vast majority of my time. As a result of this, the mod page has sat in a state of dormancy, to make it clear I do intend to finish the mod to the best of my abilities but it will most likely be a solo project from here on. The coming (Winter) recess is the most likely time I will begin to add content to the mod and add the finishing touches. Unfortunately though my skills are very limited in the field of scripting, as I have always been more capable with graphics over code. However I intend to provide a stable fully playable content rich mod and attempt to eliminate some of the issues by removing the overcomplicated, heavily scripted features that tend to fall apart some times, even if this means losing some of the more advanced functionality.

To end it off, the final state of the mod largely depends on how many skills I can acquire before I finish it. Then again I will always be open to working with people who would like to join and assist in development. However sadly clear sky and the stalker modding scene is slowly beginning to decline as the platform continues to age.

If you would like to help me out with Clear Skies, send me a pm here on moddb stating your skills and what you would prefer to work on.

Happy hunting friends!

Hi all, mod is currently in a state of inactivity. My RL commitments have since taken over a vast majority of my time. I intend to try put a team together again and finish what I started. Thanks for all the support with existing alphas!

Unstable.

* Agroprom crashes when I accept missions from the duty squad at entry or getting near the duty base. I can get to the base if I make duty hostile, but if I kill them all off I can't talk to the general and can't get to the underground. Can't proceed with the game :(

* Most "faction war" missions are bugged.

* CS faction doesn't seem to need you to recapture the swamps, I had to run frantically to get some of the action. CS never captures the north-east bandits camp and the bandits keep recapturing a point needed for traveling out of the map. Also, when I came back to the swamps I lost all my reputation with CS faction.

* In cordon I captured the north passage but they didn't send a squad to hold it. They eventually did sometime later.

* At the garbage I captured the bandits base but the stalkers didn't send a squad to hold it too. Only once, when I came back from dark valley, there were a couple of stalker squads that did capture the bandit base, but it didn't reproduce.

* At the dark valley, at the antenna triangulation mission the south post was conquered (before I even arrived there) but freedom soldiers were still "agitated" and the mission wasn't complete (as if some bandit was still lurking around off the map); had to load a save a couple of hours back.

* At agroprom it's impossible to sleep at the stalkers base at night, I kept getting killed by a spawning dog, even when trying to sleep on a ladder!

Many of these things you are listing are complete vanilla bugs and therefore have nothing to do with the mod itself, as this isn't primarily a bugfix-mod I suppose ;)

It's just the sort of problems you encounter with STALKER Clear Sky in general, so I sadly have to come back with "deal with it".
