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!

Great Mod! Flawless so far for me. Got to Cordon, talked to Sidorovich, got the quest from Wolf to help the Stalker with the dogs. As I approach the mission area, I get the same bug.

! attempt to use non-existent INFOPORTION [set_changers]


[error]Expression : fatal error
[error]Function : CModelPool::Instance_Load
[error]File : E:\priquel\sources\engine \Layers\xrRender\ModelPool.cpp
[error]Line : 113
[error]Description : <no expression>
[error]Arguments : Can't find model file 'actors\stalker_neutral\stalker_neutral_2a.ogf'.

I can roam the area without getting the mission, all is fine.
Right when I activate the mission from Wolf and approach the mission area, BAM, same error/bug.

I tried a bunch of things including a different save from swamps before Cordon, running in winxp sp3 comp mode. I think this error is on my end only, seeing as this is a pretty popular mission and no one has seemed to have trouble with it in the past. Any ideas? (not running dx10)

By the way, thank you for, what is to me, the best looking and performing mod for CS on my rig.

It is excellent and it's just on alpha! I can only imagine how good it's gonna be when it's out as a final product!

Keep up the great work, modders!

Hi guys and gals.. If the following question has already been answered somewhere else, please forward me to it. Thank you kindkly.

First, I've installed latest version of alpha with latest patch, absolutely no other mods or addons, in a different directory than the default. Also not Steam version.

Now the question: The renegades do not once stop and stay at the "encampment near truck" in order for me to ask "how can I help you" and get the corresponding mission.

I've already completed the entire swamps quests and all. I've tried restarting from the beginning several times. I've also tried going to the Cordon and then coming back, but the renegades keep coming to fight all the way to the Machine Yard, and the bodies keep piling up! The renegades and Clear Sky corpses litter the place!

I did follow all "next missions" and conquered the corresponding bases appropriately.

The renegades did manage to kill a couple of my fellow Clear Sky warriors when I first got the conquer the Southern Farmstead mission, but I don't think this is what's breaking that one mission.

Any insight into this issue will be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your kind and prompt response.

When I tried to use cfg_load setting.ltx the console told me it couldn't load it and didn't. Additionally when I reached the fishing hamlet and a fight started the game crashed, no report. It just froze and showed my windows cursor over the game, I had to task manager and kill it. Any idea what to do?

Playing on DX8 seems to cause the crashing, dx9 works fine. Also I was typing
cfg_load setting.ltx
when I should've been typing
cfg_load settings.ltx

Install has it wrong
