Good day sir! i admire your struggle and achievement. Clear sky needed something like this. SoC has Autumn Aurora 2.1. CoP has Misery 2.1 This coul be the next big thing for clear sky! Good, bravo sir! Its great that stuf that boils the experience to nitty gritty hardliner stuff is being made. Mods that just add more stuff but feel like cartoons are selfserving rubbish... I would like to humbly ask if there is a way to merge this mod with any mod that adds more weapons, is it compatible. Would you care to make one in the future? An merge add-on?

Bravo again sir. Keep evolving it! You will make a strong impact just like developers of misery and aa did. Be well sir...

I don't want to talk the mod down but to be honest I don't think this is going to be the "next big thing".
As I said before, this mod has been made within a few weeks and is not as sophisticated as CoP's misery mod for example.
It might, however, fill a gap and is arguably the first real hardcore mod for CS. Thank you for your kind words though.

Regarding add-ons, this is absolutely possible, especially if it's just content. Right now I need to take a break but everyone is welcome to do merge/add-ons to their liking.

If you're looking to improve the mod, I would suggest you try and integrate Sky Reclamation Project for all the bugfixes. If I were you, starting with SRP as a baseline would be my first step before creating a mod. Also, I highly recommend adding some kind of weapon mod, like Arsenal Overhaul. Talk with the developers of those mods and see if they can't help you, I would LOVE to see this mod grow into something bigger! I'm impressed how you made this in only a couple of weeks, most modders don't have that much time on their hands and take forever to release their mods. I hope to see more from you in the future and i wish you the best of luck! :D

Hermann, even though "minimap removed" and "binoculars do not identify targets anymore" are one of the pretty much essential features, is there any way I can get them back? I just need a small instruction on how to do it (especially which file, which line), I know Notepad++ and such.

I'm not at home right now but if I remember correctly, changes to binoculars can be reverted by deleting "w_binocs.ltx" (or something like that) from weapons config folder.
Not sure about the minimap though, think it's still there just moved it off screen. You'll have to look for a file that manages hud arrangement.
Anyways, I do not recommend reverting those changes, of course ;)

weird question: in the missions before the cordon, the swamp ones, i noticed my health going down for no reason. no radiation, no bleeding, nothing. i sat and watched to see what would happen and my character died. i made him sleep, eat, drink, and use 2 medkits, but he still died.
is this a feature or a bug?
