Sky4ce: I'm going to be implementing version 2.0 RC 4.1.. The reason being is because certain effects were broken in earlier revisions. The performance is drastically improved over 1.78 and earlier versions of 2.0 and it includes fixed Float 32 shaders merged into it as well. As far as shader options go in my mod, I'll include:
I believe he merged Float 32 2.0 shaders into sky4ce as I get a pretty bad performance drain with F32 enabled in sky4ce, unlike Float 32 1.5267A that has a great performance gain along with better visuals.
As far as weapons go, I've tweaked them quite a bit since my previous release. I did the following:
Easy: 40% Normal: 60% Veteran: 80% Master: 100%
Pistols: Most reliable weapons, little jamming and more useful as a back up weapon thanks to slightly improved ammo.
Shotguns: Buck greatly damages unarmored enemies, but is useless against say, Military PDZ
SMG's: Less Effective than an assault rifle for anything but personal defense. IE: Great Indoors and up close outdoors, but trash for anything else.
AR's: Nato Rifles are less reliable but have better accuracy and stopping power. Warsaw Rifles are more reliable but less accurate and their ammo has less stopping power but greater piercing effect.
Snipers: Ammo for snipers have the best piercing effect and accuracy between shots has been decreased for the SVD/SVU if you're firing shots in succession without waiting for the recoil to lessen. The flash rifle has no hit power because the round fires so fast it will just go right through a person. So all you'll see is the body dropping to the floor.
Explosives: Upped the frags for the Frag grenade and gave all explosives really high hit power for physics :D Hollywood style ragdolls ftw :D --- Antec 900 Case :: Opteron 165 @ 2.43ghz :: 2048mb Kingston Value DDR400 :: 512mb VisionTek HD 4850 @ 690/1184 :: X-FI Xtreme Music :: XP w/ SP3 and Vista w/ SP1

Is there some site or main forum thread I can keep up to date on all this at? I've played the crap out of Ol 2.2 and its realllllly too easy. The zombies and better faction interaction was nice, but I can go through the game with a hunting rifle and viper smg..... oh, and a sniper strictly for countersniping monolith snipers :P Thanks.
