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!

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.

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.

would this mod work with stash filler (a mod which makes all stashes automatically filled?)

If it doesn't replace any of FFCS' files, then yes...
