Vanilla Clear Sky sucks, 99% of Clear Sky gameplay mods are retarded garbage, but do not dismay. I have improved the gameplay, weapons, ballistics, sounds, and other facets of the game - adding little to no extra gamedata content which may pose crash problems, install problems or mod compatibility issues, but rather improving upon the vanilla content and some existing mods [insert goofy shout-out list]. Install this mod using the basic copy+replace process (add gamedata folder into your game directory then set gamedata to 'true' in the fsgame.ltx file). I recorded the preview videos on minimal vid settings on an old computer with no GPU to show you it runs super well without looking like minecraft or some PS1 game. Porting this stuff to SoC and CoP is super-easy too, if you are familiar with modding any S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game.


Patch Notes

Weapons

○ Improved skins
○ Improved sound files for weapon draw/shot/reload/close (in sync with animations)
○ Improved scope textures (PSO-1 Scope, SUSAT scope, G36 scope, RPG-7 scope, Binocular scope, etc)
○ Fixed iron sight aim (all weapons), added aim-down-sight to pistols & RP-74 light machine gun
○ Realistic aim-down-sight speed
○ Realistic turn sensitivity
○ Balanced rate of fire (in sync with animations)
○ Realistic bullet damage/spread/range/drop
○ Realistic gun jam rate
○ Enabled tracer textures for bullets
○ All upgrades for all weapons available everywhere
○ All weapons display their real names in-game

Other Textures/Graphics

○ New arm textures (one for Exo suits, another for non-Exo suits)
○ New blood splatter textures
○ New player icon in the Inventory menu

Other Sounds

○ Improved ambience sounds, weather sounds, distant gun sounds, random environment sounds, etc.
○ Improved device sounds, inventory bag noises, heartbeat/bleeding sounds, death sounds, etc.
○ Improved bullet whizzing sounds, bullet impact sounds, explosion sounds, etc.
○ New audio at various bases/encampments
○ Tributary gun sounds from the game 'Rust' added into the game - AK47 sounds for the AK74, Waterpipe Shotgun sounds for the BM16, Revolver sounds for the M9 Beretta/Fort-12/Browning Hi-power, P220 sounds...

To reverse any changes this mod may make to your game version, extract the original gamedata files from your torrent .db (database) files (using the extractor for clear sky on moddb.com) and copy+replace them into your game's gamedata folder.


General FAQ


"Why was vanilla CS bad, and need an overhaul?"

Basically, a large majority of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series players skipped over vanilla CS for multiple reasons: No pistol aim-down-sight, bad crash problems, misaligned gun crosshairs, generally garbage sounds/textures/gameplay. For those left, who tried to play the whole game immersively and read the storyline, the experience was insufferable, uneventful, disappointing and did not entice many to take to modding the game to make it mor tasteful. Most serious modders ask the question "mod or skip this game?", when deciding whether or not to dedicate their time and effort toward a certain addon/mod/overhaul, and in the case of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky a lot of modders (from the fanbase and outside) chose to skip straight to Call of Pripyat (later installment, generally better developed, more potential rewarding modding projects).

Among the moddb.com and gamebanana.com communities, very few actually decent mods were made by the fans to make CS playable, and trying to mod CS is like rebuilding the game from scratch into a piecemeal sandbox thing that you may as well forget about and mover onto CoP modding. but as a true fan of the series and a long-time player of 'Rust' on Steam, I wanted more out of this underrated but poorly developed game which for a prelude to SoC was pretty disinteresting. So Clear Sky Playable overhaul is all about dealing with those issues and resurrecting the game with all of its redeeming aspects, then taking a specific look at every aspect of the game experience (textures, sounds, weapons ballistics, game physics, scripts, configurations, etc) and tweaking ANYTHING out of the ordinary or discrediting to the rest of the game experience.


"What is the focus of this mod/overhaul?"


Not only to fix the multitude of issues with vanilla CS, but to enhance the game experience and to bring CS up to the same level of quality of SoC and CoP (because in it's vanilla form it is a disgrace to the series and existing mods online don't make it any better).

CS is notoriously crashy, and half the time I spent fixing this game was trying to deal with the RAM issues and instances of crashing throughout the progression of the game story. After strenuous testing, and playing the game through to CNPP I couldn't find a single crash or memory issue that could lead to loss of performance.

Many enhancements in this overhaul can be ported over to SoC, CoC, and CoP, for example the 'weapons' texture files and config files (for ballistics settings). It is hard to attain accurate information on how to mod CS (as opposed to the other two installments), but with this mod it is a simple process of just copy+pasting some files into the game directory.

Why this isn't packed in one? I'm confused

It's over 2.8GB which is the upload limit.

Installation process:

Download folders from the files page, make a new folder called "gamedata", unpack the .zips into the gamedata folder and move it to the game's main folder, set the $gamedata$ setting to true/true in the fsgame.ltx file, download the 90 FOV file and copy+replace it to your 'bin' folder ...and it's playable.

edit 2: DON'T BE LIKE ME FOLKS! Reply to the creator's post below if you have any problems, DON'T MAKE A NEW POST!

Nice mod, really nice, but the gunshot sounds don't track where the enemy is. Sometimes there will be a battle I'm watching in the distance, but the gunshots sound like they're right up in my face. Is there a way I can fix this?

edit: Whoops, I didn't reply under the main post. Sorry :/

fix to make the sound work:

go to gamedata\configs\environment\sound_channels.ltx and edit this in...

min_distance = 0
period0 = 25000

The only issue I've come across so far is that the Flashlight emits a blinding white blob on the screen.

Are you sure if Alternative Ballistics from SRP are compatible with this mod or any other addon from SRP?

If you are trying to imply that SRP's ballistics are better than mine pls go, but yeah if you are trying to copy+paste all these weapons/configs from CSP to SRP you gotta just make sure they're Clear Sky configs not CoP configs with added variables that crash CS and SoC. So, what are trying to merge that you're strugglin' with?

Now you are just confusing me, what CoP configs? Is this mod only for CS? Why not just upload a patch with instructions how to install both SRP and this mod.
