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.

The road to Limansk

News 2 comments

What is going on?

When I first announced Clear Skies, I intended to build something way better than the old Faction Fronts mod. I wanted to deliver something that was content rich, bug free and immersive on a completely new level. It is with a heavy heart that I announce the end of the road for the Clear Skies mod. But it can't be said that the project was a total loss.

The team at 828 Studios created some truly spectacular features that gave this project its own identity amongst most other mods, however circumstances can change and with most of the team moving on from modding to tackle real life circumstances the project is no longer worth pushing, given my skillset in primarily graphics and configs, the reality is I don't have the resources to take this project to the level I want it by myself. Not to mention the third year of my studies in Mechanical Engineering isn't freeing up any extra time.

So what now?

Well this is where things hit a curve ball of sort. While I have given up the project I founded, I am going to be joining up with another modder who is currently developing the Clear Sky Mod "The Road to Limansk".

So while this project is over, something far better is in the works, I encourage you all to visit the mod page for The Road to Limansk and track it! The project needs your support.

There will be no further updates to Clear Skies, the project is officially dead. You can all un-Track it

I'm having issues with the Device/Harddisk1/DR2 crash. Just wondering if you have any ideas as to ways around it or if another patch is coming to fix it? It is happening so frequently that it makes it hard to play the game. Also, I guess I should add that it will suddenly crash the game, then if i try and reload, the last save crashes on loading screen. But besides that, really good work on the mod. Will for sure be downloading FF CoP when it is finished.

What hardware are you running? I'll look into the problem and see if I can find a solution.

Ok, I was able to fix the issue with Device/Harddisk1/DR2 by using a fixed/cracked exe file. Although, now I'm experiencing random crashes to desktop with no error message. Just black screen, and when I Ctrl+Alt+Del It closes Clear Sky. Not sure if that will help, but I thought I'd let you know in case it does.

When the game crashes, open notepad and and paste, there should be a crash log there. Send that to my email. ff_mod_studios@live.com

One other thing I was wondering about. The Faction Wars still seem to be very slow. For example. I joined the Bandits and it took 20-30 minutes for any new squads to spawn and claim outposts. Is there a way to speed up spawn times? Or am i stuck with waiting? Although, it is much better then without your mod, because in vanilla they would never end up spawning anyway. Sorry for all the questions, but one more thing i was wondering is if it is difficult to make weapons do more damage, to 'up' the realism?

The bandits spawn slower for balance, otherwise they end up dominating the garbage. This is one of the most frustrating things about vanilla Clear Sky...

Alright, that makes sense. I haven't actually played the vanilla in a couple years. I found all the other factions reasonably easy to dominate with. But, is it common knowledge that bandits are the most difficult?

Yeah I'll for sure do that when it happens again. I have come to the conclusion that it is very random, sometimes it happens every 10-15 mins, other times i can play for a couple hours with no problem.Seems to be more frequent when switching between levels. Garbage to Dark Valley ect. But either way thanks for the help.
