In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km 'Exclusion Zone' around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.

It is now 2012 - man has ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone driven by reports of strange 'artifacts' imbued with anomalous energy. Mercenaries and bounty hunters compete to recover these artifacts, which command extortionate prices on the black market. Others seek to find the truth behind the Zone, while some merely revel in the desolate lawlessness of the place. Whatever their motivation, over time these individuals - Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killer, Explorers and Robbers - have become known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s.

Although confirmation of what there working on has not been released and they've all but said the first game won't be a STALKER title there re-emergence can only be good news for the franchise's future.

GSC Game World, developers of STALKER, are back in business - PC Gamer

skiphs: Looking up how to edit the behavior of the Pseudodog mutant so I can have one as a pet.
skiphs: That won't get shot at.
skiphs: Just one.
skiphs: That's invincible.
skiphs: And able to follow me through the zones.
skiphs: Or be in my inventory.
skiphs: Weightless.
skiphs: Maybe make it a seperate thing from the Pseudodog LTX file.
skiphs: Maybe... Pseudopet.ltx
skiphs: Have it follow me, attack for me, but be god damn invincible.
pressedinabook: sounds great n_n
skiphs: If I figure it out, I'll send you one.
pressedinabook: thank you <3
skiphs: I'll also send you a pet Bloodsucker, they're c*nts.
pressedinabook: xD damn
skiphs: But yeah.
skiphs: There's gotta be a true/false or 0/1 for friendly or enemy, I reckon.
pressedinabook: hopefully
skiphs: So, make a copy of that, work set it to follow, f*** with the immunities, etc.
skiphs: Maybe even switch the Pseudodog in the spawner with the Pseudopet.
skiphs: :l
skiphs: Brb, putting a question out to GameFAQ's.

OTHER NOTES: Perhaps code some scripting/make interface for commanding a pet to sit, stay, lay, follow, attack, fetch (Using fetch to get my pet to bring back anything my cursor's on at the time I've issued the command would make collecting ammunition when behind cover a breeze, and attacking a Controller when I'm really not in the mood to deal with their sh*t.), follow others, find.

Would also like the to give the files the ability to hold something up to the pet from the inventory so it hunts for it, or a frisbee so you can play fetch. Maybe a squeaky ball.

Either way. most of this is out of my current knowledge and ability. So I'm looking to gain the help of those who are more in-depth with modding and/or making interfaces.

I have played STALKERSOUP for a long time and tried many graphical

enhancements to make it even better than already. Here is a short video of

STALKERSOUP with Boris Vorontsov's ENB along with some Sweet FX Boulotaur2024

Injector effects. I am working on and will try to add Dynamic Shaders 2.0 soon


In this video I managed to record a time lapse video after my Stalker died due

to hunger in a sleep on top of a tower in the Swamps. Check out the beautiful

passage of time in the zone, showing lightning and weather effect in all its

The Stalker community is one of the best :)

Now that GSC Game World is back, I hope that's good news for the Stalker series and we see a new entry in a couple of years.
