-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Smart Mod Manager installation:

General info:

- if you see a square (checkbox) next to a component - this is a 'main' component

- if you see a circle next to a component - this is a 'patch'to a 'main' component - you can use it to customize the 'main' part. You don't have install any 'patches' for any components (just select 'no patch' - you'll have default settings in this case). Exeption: Proper Env Addon plugin for Core has to be installed if you intend to use one of the Envirnomental Addon presets.

- 'OPTIONAL' phrase means that a certain point of procedure can be bypassed

Installation procedure:

0. Unpack the package

4. OPTIONAL: Check / uncheck the box for one of the 'SWO v3.0 Envirnomental Addon' presets. ALWAYS ISTALL ONLY ONE ENV ADDON!!! UNCHECK THE BOXES OF TWO PRESETS THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO USE!!!

3. OPTIONAL: Check out [#extras] folder and install content of you choice

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Technical notification:

- almost all sky textures from SHOC, CS and StalkerSkies pack used. All of them hand-reedited to achieve the best quality skies in SoC ever!

- as always: sunrise and sunset timezone synchronization (Kiev, 01.05.2012) and semi-real, east-west sun arch (sun rises in the east and sets in the west)

- best graphical quality achievable in SoC (3+ years of SoC weather editing experience)

v3.1
- all sky textures reedited (recoloration, bluring, bug fixes)

- made sun flares finally look properly for all presets (used to look baloon-like for clear presets before)

3. OPTIONAL: Check out [#extras] folder and install content of you choice

Game Performance:

- The mod can and propably will decrease you game performance.
- If you have a low-mem system the game may crash due to lack of memory (especially after installing Argus Texture Pack) - this is due to increased sky-cube size. If reports are frequent I'll prepare the low-res versions of them
- if you experience too much slodown - pls decrease the in-game ADVANCED graphics bars to improve FPS. HOWEVER AVOID USING IN-GAME BASIC PRESET SWITCHES (LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH ETC.)!!!
