Best Clear Sky mod contest

Since posts with questions about the best "big" mod for Clear Sky have been popping up quite frequently, I decided to make a poll for everyone to see and not ask every month. Go ahead and place your vote!

I don't think a contest for "best" is really appropriate, because they all do different things. TFW is a complete game-changer, Fluffy's pre-sky is intended to enhance the normal stalker gameplay style, I'm not actualyl sure what warmongers is for, I Just know it did a bunch of changes and improvements, Complete is almost entirely a graphical update.

Sp what is best to one person may not reflect which mod is the best, simply because their choice is the one that fits closest to what they want out of a mod.

Just my 2 cents.

We're not here to compete with each other, after all

+1. PH couldn't have said it any better; the results of this poll won't accurately reflect how good each mod is. I mean, the complete mod could be almost *perfect* at what it does, but since I don't care about graphical enhancements (and my computer probably can't handle it anyway), I wouldn't vote for it.

Also - since you have it in your poll - is there a new version of Faction Commander out? Because the newest one I can find is outdated (2.5.1) and unstable as hell.

Complete is a Graphics pack, really. An enhancement mod.
PreSky is a total conversion focusing on creating a look on the Zone from a more ordinary Stalker perspective.
The Faction War is another total conversion focusing on the neglected and buggy vanilla faction war, expanding it, and making it the focus of the mod and fixing it.
Spartan 11:11 is a hardcore mod with a fair bit of 'FTW" to it.
The Warmongers also looks like a hardcore mod. Strange that it has the most votes, and isn't out yet.
Old Good Stalker Mod - from what I know, its an enhancement mod.
Faction Commander - expands on the faction war for the vanilla game, as far as I know. Enhancement mod.
Sky Reclemation Project - Bugfix mod.
S.M.R.T.E.R. Zone hardcore mod. Unstable, and long abandoned.
CS: Enhanced - Another enhancement mod.

Really, the only mods that can be compared are the mods described as enhancements or hardcore. Everything else is in a category all on its own, and can't really be compared to each other.

Each sort of mod (Enhancement, Hardcore, Total Conversion) each appeals to a different sort of player, and has different attributes that make it difficult to compare.

Yeah, maybe "best" isn't the best word to describe what the poll might reflect in the near future. I think "most popular" is more appropriate.
Still, I believe it's good to have such a poll.

Fluffy (and if anyone else is considering giving OGSM a try) I would consider OGSM more then an enhancement. It adds in the Pripyat underground between Limansk and the NPP. More story and story related quests along with dozens of "fetch" quests like in SHOC and freeplay at the end.

It also adds in all cut mutants (nicely spread around the world, without feeling cramped) a few new weapons and armors and some old artifacts from SHOC that spawn in anomolies around the world (i.e. slug, mica, etc...) along with a number of other features. It keeps to the original atmosphere very well and I highly recommend it to anyone

I did not realise it did some of that, I have had it sat there for a while I only spent an hour or so playing it and got way laid with COP stuff, I must make sure to give this a complete playthrough.

+1

We can't compare a new storyline mod with a graphical mod. It isn't the good question.

If you want to compare them, maybe can you compare the complete mod with the CS Reloaded (for graphism), or TFW with Faction Commander (about faction war aspect) for example.

You can compare one aspect between two or more mods, but you can't compare all mods.

I thought OGSM was never officially ported to the english version of CS, and as a result was hilariously unstable? But that could be old information, I haven't actually heard anything about it since then, and that was almost 2 years ago.
