A huge mod compilation of some of the best mods, for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl v1.0005. Not looking for any credit since it's not my original work. IF YOU USE V1.0006 (STEAM VERSION), YOU HAVE TO DISCARD THE INCLUDED BIN FOLDER IN ORDER FOR THE MOD TO WORK. It's a mix of Oblivion Lost 2010, Photorealistic Zone, Particle Paradise, Arsenal Mod, gnomus scopes, STALKER Shaders MAX, Dynamic Shaders 1.1, Absolute Nature, Music Expansion, and much more. All of it retweaked for increased, but more balanced difficulty and more realism. Best graphics mod for SoC bar none. The mix of shaders as well as Panoramic Mod just makes for a distinct, perfect look. As with any mod, SAVE OFTEN! And don't just use one or two saves. Yes, I'm aware of Photorealistic Zone 2. There's a separate Beta version that uses it, but it seems that X-ray engine can't handle it. Performance is very unstable and the mod pack itself may be unstable with it. Use that one at your own risk.







NOTE 2: I recommend using motion blur. To do so, modify your shortcut that launches SoC (right click, Properties). Add -mblur to the target. In-game, motion blur can be tweaked with the r2_mblur command (e.g., r2_mblur 1 uses the most motion blur possible).

NOTE 3: From edwin11373: "Actually, I found a way to make better. In the ini file, the Sun_near was set to 12. I changed it to 30. The lower the´╗┐ number, the higher the quality of the shadows are BUT the far shadows are blocky until you get near them. So, by making the near shadows less in quality you can lower the drastic transition between high/low qualities of shadows. I don't mind having a bit low-res near shadow just as long there's no awful transition."

NOTE 4: The Stalker Shaders MAX settings application is not fully functional. Don't use it.

OPTIONAL SUNSHAFTS REPLACER. This makes it so dynamic outdoor shadows can only be viewed from certain angles, like sunshafts. This shader implementation comes from OGSE.

Note: I recommend using the 3GB Enabler found on Complete 2009's page. Here's the Readme since it isn't included in that link, and this needs to be at least 300 characters.

Shadow of Chernobyl Mod Pack 2013 is a merge of the following mods:

- Oblivion Lost 2010 by Kyuzo84 and OLP team for OL2.2
- Photorealistic Zone by LoNer1
- Particle Paradise by LoNer1
- Arsenal Mod by Arsenal mod team
- Gnomus scopes by gnomus
- STALKERSOUP shaders (tweaked STALKER Shaders MAX)
- Dynamic shaders 1.1 by Meltac
- Absolute Nature by Cromm Cruac
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Music Expansion by Sclera
- Everything re-tweaked for difficulty and immersion by me
- New outfits, misc items (from OGSE), new sound effects (from TehCourtJester), some particles from Particle Paradise, and much more.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS for max settings at 1080p
- Intel Core i5 dual core at 3.5 GHz or more, or AMD equivalent
- Over 4GB RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti / AMD Radeon HD 6870 or better

- Open or unzip the file "Sockmode 2" and drag the gamedata folder to your Shadow of Chernobyl root folder (e.g., C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl OR C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl)
- OPTIONAL - > put the bin folder in the same directory
- START A NEW GAME and enjoy

As with any mod, you should save often. I tend to make a separate save for each level, and overwrite it every time I enter that level.

***********NEW BETA VERSION******************

Has Photorealistic Zone 2 instead of the original. Much better texture quality. But BE WARNED, performance is all over the place on my setup (1152p, max detail, GTX 680, i7 2600 @ 4.2 GHz, 8GB RAM). I think this just pushes x-ray to the limit, and the dual core limitation probably hurts a lot too. But if you're feeling brave...

Check out these gameplay videos!

Bottom of the description.

Some of those are WiP, especially the first one. The newest vids demonstrate it best.

Started downloading, will leave some feedback once it's up and running.
Thanks for your efforts on this gunner, this must have required a lot of patience.

If running successfully will attempt to upload some video gameplay.

This is the latest version of the mod 2013's? Perhaps you remember that I was inquiring about the past and the PKM MG3 problems (could not take delivery), and the minigun order. So, here we are PKM? Yeah, and I can see how to install the mod in two in a row?

Yes, latest stable version. The PKM, MG3, and Minigun aren't in this version. As for installing, download both parts, merge the gamedata folders, and put it in your Shadow of Chernobyl folder.

Hey Mr Boredgunner, I see you've been a bizzy boy.
I'll grab this puppy an' see how it runs, but a quick question about that 3 Gig enabler, I found it on ModDB but there is a comment or two about it being a waste of time because of Win 7 being brainy enough or something?
So could you post the link / tell me the 3 Gig enabler IS worth putting in?
Cheers big ears.

Hmm I don't see how Windows 7 would affect the game engine's ability to utilize more RAM. I'd get it just to be safe, because I never played SoC on Windows 7 without the 3GB enabler. It's really quick and better safe than sorry.

Thank you Boredgunner, the 3 Gig doofer worked a treat ( I can see on my G15 keyboard ) .. loads fast, looks just freakin' glorious, so thick and resinous with the foliage and lighting. The cats and OL zombies, the scary thunderstorms all making for an epic session.
Only a couple of very minor things stop it from being 11 out of 10 .. the fire sounds are damn nice, but a tad loud, and once in a while I get a weird graphical glitch like a flickering, but fortunately it doesn't last.
So thanks again and seeing the wonder of these graphical features I can only marvel at the genius of LoNer1 and these other founts of technical creativity!!

Boredgunner, or anyone out there, know of a way to get The Bar to play the cool radio music? I only get the static/random noise when I go in. I checked the mod's sound files and found some cool tracks but haven't heard them in game yet.

Played with the mod for about an hour and the only problem ive had is the weapon holding positions are not as they should be. They're either completely out of the hands of the npcs or just a few inches off of where they should be.

Just wondering, is this mod compatible with the 1.0006 patch? As well, will Absolute Structures and the Zone Reclamation Project also work with this? Thanks!

Doesn't work with 1.0006 or ZRP, and this has better textures than Absolute Structures.

I just got this game and decided to install this mod. But every time I try to play a new game it just crashes. I'm only using this mod pack, and im installing it all into the stalker SoC folder.

I wonder if this works with 1.0006 if you just discard the included bin folder?
