Best texture & sound mods

What are the best texture, sound, & weather mods?

I have an overclocked i7 & 2 GTX 580 so I can handle the most severe.

My personal recommendation?

Use a self-compiled pack, plain and simple.

My personal "playing" loadout uses:

STALKER Weather Overhauled 3.0 (trojanuch) + addons
Ambient Audio Overhaul 1.8 (myself) + SoundEFX / Level Musics
Sound Overhaul v1.7 (darius6)
Particle Enhancement v3.0 (EggChen)
Photorealistic Texture pack (Argus)
Photorealistic Living Creatures (Argus)
Custom weapon skins from snake, millenia, siro, argus, etc.

I highly recommend using the addons trojan and I put together for inclusion with SWO3 for shaders, natural foilage, mutant textures, particles, post-processing effects, etc. Screenshots, vids, etc (http://stalker.filefront.com/file/;116950).

You can grab weapon skins from FPSBANANA. I highly recommend those released by Argus, Millenia, Siro, and The Snake.

If you want more of a "vanilla" or alpha-build appearance, install nandersen's Dynamic Weather mod in place of SWO3.

But - if you're looking for an easy copy&paste modding solution, I'm sure everyone is going to recommend Complete (as it doesn't drastically change gameplay dynamics). Nothing wrong with that mod, though, IMHO; I just kinda prefer to have a more "specialized" build, lol.

I am playing with Complete right now and not very impressed. Plus I am 5 hours in and just blowing through everything on Master difficulty. I have way much more money than I know what to do with and I'm getting bored.
I would like mods that increases the difficulty of the AI, money, & anything else that makes the game more like survival.

I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty with mixing mods, in fact I'd prefer it to get the type of game I want.

What about Absolute Structures & Absolute Nature? Should I use those with Photorealistic Texture pack (Argus) on top? Or does the Argus pack cover those with higher quality ones?

Is it true you want to keep you game patched at 1.0004 for mods?

If I use your Misery mod and overwrite it with the K10 textures it will play fine right?
