1: STALKER - Call of Pripyat, updated to version 1.6.02 or newer. (The Steam version comes already updated)
2: Start the game at least once before installing mods.
3: After installation, start a new game. Old save-games will not work.

New fsGame file (LINK)
Download and unpack to the game folder. Overwrite.

Installation Options:
I highly recommend selecting "Installation for Advanced Systems".
When asked about AtmosFear's NPC Emission Exposure Consequence, select "Killed At Emission's End" if you don't want to change the original game.

Open the "Grass_Pack_Addon" folder, and move the content of "Grass_CoP_2k" into the game-folder.
Open the "Stalker Two-K Tinny Little" folder and move the content of all folders into the CoP game-folder.
Open the "FX-Pack_Addon" folder and move the content of all folders into the CoP game-folder. Except for the following 3 folders:
"BetterFlashlight" Open the folder, and choose either version. I recommend "Long Range(50 meters)". Move the content into the game-folder.
"Nightvisons" Open the folder and choose either version. I recommend "Animated Green". Move the content into the game-folder.

What makes these mods different?
Besides being a collection of the best mods from the years following the release of the respective games, these mods have artwork and modifications from real professional artists. The games have been redesigned with new visual qualities, which both technically and artistically enhances the experience. Each mod for each game has been compiled into one single easy installer, which speeds up installation drastically.
