This mod from "Unknown03" makes various changes to increase game difficulty. See File Details for specific changes.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Clear Sky - 1.5.04
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Clear Sky -- Compilations of Modifications v1.0rc
by Unknown "Unknown03"
This is a personal project of mine that has finally evolved into the release candidate of 1.0 for Compilations of Modifications, or, "CoM."
The goal of this series is to make S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky a more frighteningly realistic game, adding substance and changing it to, what I feel, the game should've been.
This is NOT recommended for Novices that are new to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series. It is recommended that you complete, in full, the Vanilla Clear Sky before taking a chance in the Zone with this MOD for full effect.
No more will you engage in firefights without caution and special tactics, as the ballistics have real-world values.
Your friends play a larger role in your success. Your enemies have the same chance for survival as you do -- and they are not happy. The further along you make it in the Zone, the more your luck is fading. If you can make it through alive, you are a true veteran.
Do not be naive, Stalker. The Zone wishes you dead. How will you respond?

1: Change your "fsgame.ltx" from:
$game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata
$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata
2: Drag the gamedata folder from the archive into the root of your Stalker: Clear Sky directory
3: Play Stalker: Clear Sky
Those are only the changes I can remember as of now, as I'm sure I'm forgetting something. This mod is compatible only with 1.5.04 because 1.5.05 hasn't worked for me and I cant really test it.
EYESOFARAVEN Unofficial Patch for 1.5.04 has not been used as it makes the AI passive and unresponsive. USE AT YOUR OWN WILL.
Veteran difficulty recommended.
Please report any bugs that are RELATED TO THIS MOD. When a new patch comes out I will try to make it compatible.
You are only authorized to reproduce/change provided you Credit those who have made this mod possible, along with myself .
