Adds more CS Armor variety to various factions, trying to be somewhat lore-friendly as well. CAN BE USED AS MODDERS RESOURCE.
Alternative Clear Sky Variants. CSVars for short.
This mod adds some custom models that use different textures for various factions.
The idea is that, considering what happened to Clear Sky in the second game, it would make sense that their armours got obtained and refit for Monolith's colours.
Also, Renegades are always in constant conflict with Clear Sky, why wouldn't they loot some of their own armors, right?
As for Sin, they're part of Monolith, I consider them as the "Bosses" of the Zone or at the very least Monolith, so they indeed get the best from Monolith.
This mod can be used as-is or be integrated into another mod.
If you're doing the latter, please read the license and put it in your mod in accord to the textures made.
Simply extract this file's "gamedata" into your main Anomaly directory.
NOTE: Do not uninstall or you might have crashes due to missing models.
Please do note that these are TEXTURES only, there are no significant model changes, at least not yet.
For now, I have only made variants using the CS-1a, CS-1b and CS-3b, the rest of the armors will be done later.

Anything that changes "character_desc_general_" is not compatible.
Basically, not compatible with any other mod that adds new stalker models or so.
Compatibility patches will not be made, although it is HEAVILY encouraged by the End User, that is you, to make them.
If not, ask the modder who has incompatibilities with this, the patch should be very easy.
Please make a comment in the Moddb page itself for feedback.

In short; you can use this mod anywhere you like, as long as you explicitly credit me, Blackgrowl, as well as share a profile to Strogglet15 and share a link to the mod itself.
You can also make changes and share it with others.
I would like to give thanks to "Dux Fortis", "Ladno" and "Qatapro" for some of the help they provided.
I would like to give thanks to "Feel_Fried" and "Thundervision" for making poems with me, for the Sin variant.
