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.

Lol, I actually laughed at the system requirements. Did you look at performance charts, tested the mod on different hardware with FPS monitoring and hardware monitoring etc. ?

Or did you just think of the highest end stuff and place it in there? CPU, GPU and RAM aren't everything, you know. I'd 'suggest' you to look at the minimum system requirements and max. of the vanilla game.

This is not critique, it's just ... surprising. I mean, come on Pred. What game uses 16GB of RAM? None. No, not even friggin Starcitizen does. 8GB is more then enough for a game like stalker, hell, 6GB is enough. Also, Xray runs best at +3,4Ghz.

There's probably no desktop CPU that runs below 3Ghz if it's an i7 so that doesn't make much sense either. (taking into account you put a desktop icon next to it and didn't include the 'm' in the GTX variants depicting it would be a 'mobile' / notebook version)

Seriously though; Something like an i3/i5 that runs at decent speed, 6Gb of RAM and a GTX5xx or above will run this game, easily. It's dated from 2008, not 2012. It's when bad optimization comes into play you'll need a GTX770 to compensate for the developers flaws, but I take this mod is better quality than that.

ok then..

"Did you look at performance charts, tested the mod on different hardware with FPS monitoring and hardware monitoring etc."

No, besides frame rate monitoring using my own system and the system of co-developers no major research was done. The setup I am running now can run the game at an average of about 70fps with the lowest being about 30fps and highest peaking to around 100fps @ 1680x1050 with almost everything on Maximum, DX10, no MSAA & No SSAO.

GTX 560Ti OC
I5 3.2Ghz
8Gb Ram

The system reqs were put into the flash front as a point of reference for anyone who was not sure what sort of hardware runs the mod nicely and on decent settings. The extreme specs stand as a reference to those who would like to run the mod at a stupiously high framerate @ 2560x1600 ; 4X MSAA ; High SSAO and Sun Rays and Injected sweetFX filter with SMAA.

Which I am sure someone out there may want to do...

Dude chill out. I think that extreme setting is there as some sort of joke. Maybe to poke COD:Ghosts developers as they ststed that you will need at least 8 GB or more to even run their game (16 GB being rported as optimal).

Hey Gulfman, try the hotfix as said by Lito.LV & described by Seeker_of_Strelok. It should be work.

In my opinion "Complete" mod was really good but this one is much better!
