This is the original version of Winter of Death by Johann and his team, It has a full translation and the changes are credited for in the read me. Artwork by Alexander Rudenko.
Isn't this the mod that runs absolutely terrible?
That depends what it's run on. It is demanding but it runs no worse than SGM for example (I'd say better, I get less stutter with this). It's running great on my current rig, my last rig struggled with it but it did with a few mods.
Really? Hm. I just remember trying it out and my PC runs COP fairly well (Got an old i7 920 and a GTX 670) but this mod just ran with 20 FPS or something. Even on static lightning!
I had the same problem when I tried it, and even after I toned down to the minimum, nineties resolution, it still ran as slow as on max, which defies logic. Maybe has something to do with nvidia. Anyway still played a bit, but the damage done by me and the damage done by enemies was too unfair and didn't bother playing further.
This is a different version to what you tried. The one you tried had an addon which in my opinion screwed the mod up. You'd find this very different if you tried it. That's why I uploaded it.
Im playing it "as we speak" (just crashed, but starting up again now). It runs sometimes OK, but when I look into the distance it most of the time falls heavily in FPS. Also stutters quite some when I'm just sprinting around. But it definitely feels better than last time I tried it.
I feels a lot like SGM 1.7 (2.1-2.2 runs smoothly, imo) which ran a pretty bad FPS along with some stuttering too. It might be some scripting in the mod that does it.
Have you tried playing with Atmosfear in it?
I added Af emissions but thats it, not AF3. I'm gonna do a vid of it too show what it's doing.
for me SGM runs smoothly, with no problem i always use static lighting.
Even though I've been watching my fps with fraps I can only guess at what my average is but I'd say it's in the high 50's with mid thirties at the Skadovsk and Yanov station. That's on a 3570k with a 7950 boost. I've been watching it because my old Phenom quad with a 1gb 6770 used to get the sort of fps you mentioned and I was interested in seeing how much better it runs now.
Have you noticed that the CPU usage is at a contsant 100% when playing this mod? on ALL cores. It's insane. How did they manage to archive such horrible performance?
What about without the bin files? What are you reading cpu usage with?
Well I have a widget of some sort on my 2nd screen that shows usage on all cores. They all blast up to 100% as long as I am ingame but drop while Im in the menu.
I experience the same thing, it's OK but otherwise, if I look in the distance towards the rest of the map it's less than 10fps I think. I don't see how the visual change could really have this insane impact on the system, idk, must be something else; probably, as you said, it's bad optimization for certain gpu
yeah, I noticed that too, I will try to not use bin files to start the mod
I do not know why, but there is no sence of making and releasing the mod that force your CPU go on 100% ,thats insane
The mod and graphics/atmosf. is amazing in the mod but unplayable with this FPS, I am so sad :(
Does this mod have new quests?
Seems to consist of new quests.
isnt this the mod that one guy named duty326 sugested because i remember seing the picture
I'm afraid I don't know, This is a fairly old mod. I rewrote the translation a year or two ago and originally had the English all-in-one on Megaupload, I've only recently decided to move the mods to a Moddb page. As the name suggests there all Russian mods that have been converted so we can understand them.
Hey friend,first thanks for your awesome translation that enable us to enjoy quite a lot of good mods：）,
but……uh……I god one personal problem with it(wod):when I delivered the strange artifact to shakharov and back to wolfhound,he said that currently he had no job for me,then I hang around in the zone for several days,don't know what to do or where to go……(sorry for my poor english)
Ain't there new missions avaliable?
Sadly that's the end of the mod, It's quite short, I added back the Mutant hunter tasks and some access cards via stashes for the Pripyat lab etc that were cut out to flesh it out a little but it's still a bit short. Did you do the little tasks in the Dark valley like rescueing the hostage and finding the tools, Also did you try using the Bandit option for getting from the Garbage to the Dark valley?
Yes.The F2000 rewarded by the freedomer are very considerate,can't beat the heavy armor without it and also the rpg-7 from the bush,a very effective weapon for bombing on the Pseudogiant afterwards.
And that's also amazing when meeting another Degtyarev in Pripyat*_*
Thank you for all new features you added on this mod,and hope johan can complete this mod soon^_^.
I felt a bit of a idiot when I realised I hadn't changed the players name from Degtyarev especially as your playing a newbie merc, The screenshot above gives instructions for changing it but it needs a new game to take effect.
If I heard right this was the last version of the mod and there won't be an update, which isn't a bad thing as I'm sure he's doing a new project and that's a good thing.
Haha,it's ok,just like an Easter egg~_~.Two mighty Degtyarevs stands together seems more interesting even than the whole mod(Something potential~_~,you know).
I think the existence of Degtyarev in pripyat meant all jobs around that place was completed by him long before……
This mod is not interesting much ... but still good and funny too .. Oasis found <= Save game said but the true Oasis not in there :P !
It's not a vanilla based mod, your not really meant to do the vanilla stuff, I added tremor's mutant quests back myself just to thicken it a bit, It's not a long mod but if you follow the story line as it is set out, doing what's required it's a good mod. You need to follow the storyline and it leads you to new areas. Like the Garbage and the Dark valley
I've enjoyed this mod until trying to get the Artifact hidden in the Eastern underground entrance. I went to get it the first time and was attacked by about ten guys and killed them all. I returned to talk with Wedge and warn him against another trap. After sending me their again to find the artifact, I could not find it and when leaving was attacked by about five guys this time. After killing them, the spot still shows on map but I cant seem to find it. I have looked all over that little room that's under the spot on the map. What am I doing wrong?
