Clear Sky 2016 - STCS2.6 AF1.3 AN2 Dynamic Hud !


This is a compatibility patch that makes the best russian weapon mod for Clear Sky (STCS 2.6.3) and the best dynamic hud mod (Rulix's Dynamic Hud), with its variable breathing effect, run together. Beside Atmosfear 1.3 + Absolute Nature 2, and surround sound, these great mods all together provide a truly refreshed experience for all S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fans. Credits go to the mods creators, i have just put the little patch together (still WIP, if you find a bug please report it back and i will try to fix it).

Over a clean install of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky, patched to version 1.5.10:

1- Install Atmosfear 1.3 (link below) for Clear Sky.

2- Install Absolute Nature 2 (link below) for Clear Sky, with the options of your choice.

3- Copy the content of STCS Weapon Pack 2.6.3 (link below) to game dir, overwrite files when asked (it is not necessary to apply the STCS 2.6.3 english patch).

4- Copy the content of CS Dynamic Hud (link below) to game dir, overwrite files when asked.

5- Copy the content of Clean HUD - No Minimap (recommended, link below) OR Clean HUD - default (link below) to game dir and overwrite files when asked.

6- Copy ALL the content of this patch to game dir and overwrite files when asked.

7- I recommend you to disable completely the HUD - keeping the radiation and bleeding icons . To do it, after doing steps 5 and 6 above, simply unzip "NoHUD_only_icons" in the game dir ('extract here'), overwriting files when asked.

8- In the game dir, unzip "FOV_switcher_v17" ('extract here') and run "fov_switch" to adjust the FOV properly (type 37 i.e. for widescreen users, fov=75).

9- Start up the game, adjust all options and there should be a new sound device showing up in the sound settings menu, called "DirectSound". Select that and restart the game.

10- While playing, type "~" to open the console and load the atmosfear configuration using the command:

cfg_load user_atmosfear


A- Don't forget that you must modify the "fsgame.ltx" file, found in game dir, in order for any changes of these files to work in-game. Once you open "fsgame.ltx", change the "$game_data$ = false| true|" statement into this one: "$game_data$ = true| true|"

B- To enjoy surround sound, make sure that you have OpenAL (link below) installed.

Known bugs: The scope system used in STCS is quite "broken", i am trying to test a new config. system but it may take some time until a fix is completed.


To the original creators of the mods (please check their readme files), and also:

Rulix for the Dynamic Hud Mod (and tsf00181 for adapting it)
Smurth and FlyingDebris for the mask textures used in this patch
