Call of Pripyat takes you once again into the vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor that exploded in 1986. This so-called "Zone" is a highly contaminated area cordoned off by the military and now is combed through by the so-called stalkers, modern fortune hunters, in search of unique artifacts.

In the role of Agent Alexander Degtyarev, who is dressed up as stalker, you have to investigate the mysterious disappearance of five military helicopters and thereby stand one’s ground against the various stalker groups.

You might like what RCOM is doing then. You won't be able to join the Monolith Faction, but CS zone levels are combined with the CoP zone levels and the CS ones are freshly populated. There's a bit more faction against faction going on (in terms of whether they'll fight, not in terms of large population) and also some new factions (re)introduced as well.

I think COP generally has less mod Development because it's smaller. Gameplay improvements aside, unless you do something very ambitious and add in the old maps like MacB is you don't have a lot of dungeon/structures to cram full of ambushes and whatnot.

Try to look in RuNet or UANet. There are many strong communities with a lot of different mods and adons. Use Google Translation, while surfing pages. It will help you to navigate and understand.

I haven't played Call of Pripyat yet, but so far I think Clear Sky is better, apart from the pistol aim-down-sight....
Overall, it's got more faction-based missions and things for the player to get involved in, and is more kinetic and dynamic than SoC.

Hmmm... Haven't heard of an all-in package, but there's retailers that are offering the threesome at a discounted price (at least at my neck of the Zone)... As for which one is the best- That's definitely a hard question when it's thrown at the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series...
Call of Pripyat plays the best (not counting the small stuttering which is avoidable with a higher-end machine- something moderately modern [two cores of about 2.2 GHz, 3 Gigs of RAM and a decent ATI card]). It suffers from minimal save-corruption (emission/save bug still present but rare) and it only crashed on me once and I wasn't really fair to the game that time (I was Alt-Tab-ing a lot). Many aspects of the games' features have also been improved, though some still suffer- for instance A.I is still somewhere around the 40 IQ range (nothing a mod can't fix)... Unfortunately it's the shortest (with just three areas), but you can continue onwards once finished with the main story.
Clear Sky is also good- it stutters more often then Pripyat and saves tend to get corrupted every now and again (not mentioning the emission/save bug- you pop out a save and the world refreshes, there's an emission before you load, means you load dead...). The story is somewhat interesting but it gets haggy with the frequent emissions. The Zone (in my opinion) also feels bigger and harder to traverse.
Shadow of Chernobyl's still cool- it has the most bugs, IMO, and crashes every now and again. There are no emissions, so no save bug, but corruptions are fairly often- NEVER Alt+F4 after a save. The story is interesting enough to keep you playing, but the gameplay lacks many of the features of the others...
In all- all three games are cool to play, even with their many downfalls. Together they build a great story (based on the book by the same name, which I totally recommend)... If you're looking for the best story- well, just buy all of them and play them one after the other...

Any idea how I can get rid of the stutter-ness? The game plays well but at certain moments and areas it starts to stutter... Not exactly lag, but stutter... Most often it's when I'm in a base (i.e with a lot of intractable NPCs around), but also happens a lot when I'm out in the open... The game just starts to cut-up a few seconds at a time for about a minute or so then goes back to normal... I utterly hate it since most of the time it starts stuttering when there's an emission aaand I ultimately die since it's impossible to do anything when you're playing with 10fps...
Sooo... Any tips? I've already downloaded a small mod that's supposed to take care of the issue, form Steams' forums, and it did- it was waay worse before...
In case it's not obvious- I meet all the requirements (recommended ones) to play the game... I far as I understand- it's from mutants spawning at the same time and the games' pre-fetching of files...

I had to upgrade my comp, I used to meet minimum and now im WAY above recommended and I don't have that problem anymore. It might be something with the game itself?

Awesome final installment with the potential for modding greatness.

The downsides, It is too short and when you do jobs in certain places you end up with an empty area afterwards. But Modding is the answer and mods like MSO solve that particular problem.
