Graphical adjustments include distant scenery texturing, 11 weather cycles, 26 weather sky cube textures, more landmarks visible on the horizon, a high resolution constellation map for night, and more. Textures on buildings, weapons, forest, terrain, and vehicles have also been improved.
The sound is also getting a bit of an overhaul, with new ambient sounds, sound themes, and weapon sounds. The Complete mod will also include 23 new compositions, and new guitar tracks for the campfire music sets created for the game.
The AI tweaks let NPCs choose appropriate weapons, use add-ons, avoid friendly fire, and use melee attacks and medkits. Players will also be able to equip their allies with their own weapons of choice by dropping or selling them.
Various bug fixes include unreachable stashes, jupiter scanners, the one shot mission bug, the helmet fix, and the removal of bodies to improve performance. The mod will also fix various localization errors like grammar and misspellings.
This is all wrapped up with general tweaks, like loot money from dead NPCs, modernized scopes and improved nightvision, teleporting, and an item spawner. For a spot of fun, players will also be able to opt to turn NPCs into zombies upon an emission wave.
All of this barely scratches the surface of all the modifications in Complete, so check out the blog for full details. We've slipped the trailer above, and you can always enjoy some pretty screenshots as well.
