I'm about to replay SoC for the umpteenth time, but if I complete it, it'll only be the second time. I've got Complete 2009 - are there any other mods worth adding to it? Or are there other mods better than C2009? I don't want anything which HUGELY changes the game.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
If you go for the real ending of the game with Complete 2009, after the final cutscene you will spawn on the very top of the nuclear power plant (have a screenshot button ready) with a teleporter in front of you that will take you back to Cordon. I've now walked around the zone for a while after returning but I'm not really sure if there is anything different except me having a gauss rifle and some ammo in my stash.
To answer your question, C2009 is the way to go for preserving the original experience, I didn't add any additional mods myself, I'm very happy with almost all of the changes (I fucking hate the extra save button in the main menu though).
