CS Complete vs Reloaded

Ok, I've finished SoC and CoP lately, both heavily moded (Oblivion Lost 2010 for SoC, Misery for CoP) and started to look for some mod for the next STALKER game. Complete and Reloaded.

Generally this question is to ppl, who tried both mods. The seem really similar but which one can be considered as better and what are differences?

Thanks

I just voted for Complete yet I was not trying to vote. So forget 1 vote for Complete it was a mistake. Why only two choices? I would try something like OGSM rather than them. What are you looking for exactly?

I would play unmodded first though. If you want visual improvements and bug fixes I would use Sky reclamation project, Absolute nature and structures. There is another texture mod for CS which is on Stalker files that I use on top of these but its name eludes me at the moment.
But if you've never played before go vanilla not modded with just the visual tweaks and fixes.

I'm looking for best experience possible. I like modpacks, something like Oblivion Lost 2010 or Supermodpack for SoC. Visual/Audio overhaul with new features, with new weapons, thousands of minor improvements etc. Misery for CoP would be another great example.

I don't have time for several playthorughs unfortunately but I don't mind playing heavily modded Clear Sky for the first and only time.

I don't see any option to edit the poll or even delete it. I just thought that Complete and Reloaded are the only 2 big mods out there for CS.

Complete or Reloaded

I've always enjoyed the Reloaded series more, Complete seems to make the game in general a good bit easier even on the Master difficulty setting.

Complete and Reloaded seem to be about graphics, some bug fixes and maybe some AI things. Then there's OGSM.. it adds in new things and is probably my favorite Clear Sky mod.. just make sure to get the latest version, patch and translation.

Anyway, Reloaded got my vote. The 0.8.5 Beta is pretty good. http://www.moddb.com/mods/stalker-cs-reloaded/downloads/clear-sky-reloaded-085-beta-version

I might be interested in OGSM then, but how are the visuals comparing to Complete and Reloaded? Complete is visually amazing, judging from YT gameplays

I played Complete. All the 'completes' are very good mods and very stable, which is a HUGE issue for me! I can't tell you how many mods I've played (mainly SoC, some CS) that are great looking, but crash very often. That's a waste of time as far as I'm concerned. Try Complete, then try one of the mods that alters the game more.


I'm looking for one that adds more *weapons*, items, but keeps a similar storyline. Any suggestions?

I think my favorite mod for SoC so far was CSFM with all those amazing weapons. But midway through the game, in Yantar, the saves don't work and you can't progress.

Graphics Comparrison

OGSM I'm pretty sure doesn't add in new graphics ( textures for the ground, buildings, plants, trees, etc ), just for the new items added.

Liquid would know much better than me; perhaps you can add Absolute Nature / Structures or something called Graphics Pack (Clear Sky) (v.1.0).

I'll post the links, don't do any merging yet though. Complete I think uses a tweaked version of the Absolute series, or they did their own, I forgot.

Go with Complete if you want : Some bug fixes, nice graphics, bit easier play through.

Go with Reloaded if you want : Some bug fixes, nice graphics and a good re balancing of the economy and weapon characteristics.

The Links :

Absolute Nature CS

http://stalker.filefront.com/file/Absolute_Nature_Texture_Pack_for_CS;113351

or

http://www.moddb.com/games/stalker-clear-sky/addons/absolute-nature-2-texture-pack-for-cs

Absolute Structures CS

http://stalker.filefront.com/file/Absolute_Structures_Texture_Pack_for_CS;113353

or

http://www.moddb.com/games/stalker-clear-sky/addons/absolute-structures-texture-pack-for-cs

Graphics Pack (Clear Sky) (v.1.0)

http://stalker.filefront.com/file/Graphics_Pack_Clear_Sky;95317

Installing these of course uses more ram, and puts more wear and tear on your system and the engine.

Try OGSM, or wait until Spartan finishes his new build.

For Spartan's mod

look here https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=22535&sec_id=21 for the download thread

and here https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=21079&sec_id=22 for the discussion thread.

You might also look on filefront http://stalker.filefront.com/developer/Spartan73;28147 , but they're older builds.

SoS

P.S. - Spartan's mod is supposed to be adding new levels, too. Take a look at the threads.
