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.

As usual, everyone is hard at work and we have a lot to share.

First of all, we have our first programmer, Heiker! Please welcome him. He's still trying to get used to X-Ray at the moment as he has never programmed for a game engine before, and I don't think he's very familiar with Stalker either, but he is a C++ and HLSL programmer who prefers to do things visual in nature. I'm sure once he gets settled in he'll make some nice contributions, especially if he uses some of the graphical/shader goodies I sent him :)

Internal testing is underway right now with good feedback and a few bug fixes. Testing just started though the other day so we haven't gotten far with it yet.

news upload 1

Burguois is making daily updates and most recently he has added a very special artefact that spawns in gas/acid anomalies, added a few achievements, implemented a Stalker network/news system, implemented a script-based night vision system, implemented a very unique way to loot money from Stalkers (starts a quest), and some features I want to remain secret for now. He has also made a ton of radio mixes you'll hear on radios throughout the Zone. They are not just traditional Russian music but a nice variety of good and fun music to listen to. Plenty of other mods have added authentic Russian and Ukrainian music so it's nice to have something different (and you can always overwrite the radio files with ones from another mod if you don't like this).

Comrade Bear is getting the hang of animating in X-Ray and is currently working on new animations for a Mac-10. Hopefully all goes well, and after that he may go back and animate the Smith & Wesson M19 that's been sitting around in the files without any use.

*Edit* I forgot to welcome [TZP]LoNer1 to the team! I'm sure many of you are familiar with him due to his work with his many mods as well as Misery :) He recently made some new scope for us.

In terms of new weapons, that's no longer much of a focus. Maybe a handful more, but I'm pretty happy with what we currently have. It adds variety without going overboard. Next step for weapons is re-doing their upgrade system :)

Misc. other features that I've worked on is I added mutated bear to the game (don't know the original author, they're Russian I'm sure) whose new effects have yet to be done. I added bugs that circle around lights and then go away when the light turns off/is shot out. I fixed loadscreen tips to be truly random instead of only differing between a handful like the current system does. Also changed hand models to the one's used in STCoP as the vanilla hand models are ugly.

I also added a new anomaly to the game that I guess the Lost Alpha team never got around to implementing but had written a basic script for: Rusty fog. When you walk through it your helmet, outfit, and guns will be slowly have their condition degrade until you move out of it. I may expand this to have it affect items in your backpack as well as making a new variable for outfits and gear that will help to protect against the corrosion. Haven't decided where to place them yet.


In terms of the engine, with some help I recently made a big update.

Here is a list of all the features:

  • Re-working of sun cascades and shadowing in DX10 as well as several visibility rendering bugs fixed.
  • All renderers have more prominent shadows now (noticed no drain on performance personally).
  • Added cloud shadows (called sun mask internally) as a console command that was also added to Advanced Video options along with many other new options Burguois has brought to the various menus.
  • Replaced OpenAL32 with OpenAL Soft. It adds software based HRTF for headphones, as well as 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound capabilities. I have not yet implemented those three things into xrSound, but will soon. Currently it has a small bug where it won't let you pick your sound card device if you have one instead of OpenAL Soft, but that will be fixed long before this mod is ready ;)
  • Added g_spawn_antifreeze as a new command line option. This allows for staggered spawning instead of all at once, which decreases stuttering. On some systems it can cause rare crashes which is why it's disabled by default. System invented by Alpet and then ported and tweaked by avotishin. All I did was add it as a command line option with help from Alundaio.
  • Tweaked AI by Alundaio.
  • Consumable items with icons greater than 1x1 dimensions will no longer crash the game when dragged onto a quick slot (thanks for this Alundaio).
  • And miscellaneous other goodies :)

Future plans by Burguois and myself:

  • Giving Nimble a new purpose in life beyond selling special weapons. Burguois has a couple good ideas on what we can do with him.
  • Implement a new Fallout system that works randomly through weather configs during appropriate weather cycles.
  • Add more properties to PDA.
  • Add weapon hud collision like in Lost Alpha.
  • Add bloodmarks to bodies (not promising this as it's a lot of work).
  • Create new ambient sound system where all sounds come from a source. Crickets will have a specific place where they are, a monster growl will be from that monster, etc. (don't worry burguois, I'll be doing this myself, lol). Got this idea from the recent Ray of Hope update, so thanks to them!
  • Maybe make it so that NPC's wearing normal exo suits can't sprint? That or maybe it's random, some can some can't? Seems like not everyone should have bought the sprint ability yet.
  • Add HRTF, 5.1, 7.1 functions in xrSound.
  • Increase amount of multi-threading used in COP (it does use 2 threads, it just doesn't add much to the second thread).

    upload me2

Now for some important information.

Due to some changes, this mod will not work on Windows XP. I'm sorry for Windows XP owners, but that OS is now 13 years old, time to update (and sorry for those that can't, I know what it's like to be poor).

Also, I had to remove the static lighting renderer. It was making changes too complicated and quite frankly I believe DX8 is even older than Windows XP. I know a lot of laptop users use Static Lighting, but the DX9 "Objects Dynamic Lighting" option is still available. Try using that and messing with the settings to get it to play well for you.

Another thing you should know is that provided I can find 64-bit versions of code for all the 3rd party extensions Stalker uses, I'd like to convert to 64-bit. What I will do is release both 32-bit and 64-bit versions with the installer so you can choose what works for you.



That's it for now. Before I go though I want to ask more people to vote in the poll I left in our forum, as well as provide some feedback. You can find said poll here: Moddb.com

I'd also like to give special thanks to burguois, Alundaio, and avotishin, without which this would just be a simple weapons mod instead of the monster this is becoming :D

Monday Edit: We lost a tester and could use another one. PM to apply giving your full system specs including OS, how much time you have available for testing, and anything else we need to know. It's important that you try and squeeze in time to test at least a couple times a week as we're always adding new features that need testing!

When I went into the secret lab in Pripyat by chance I found the main document to complete the mission almost immediately. I learned later there were 6 documents there in al. The other 5 had some use but only the one was the key to completing the mission. I went back later and found I missed a lot besides the documents! Another mission gets a red access card to get into a store room in the lab. It has some goodies, but is not mission essential. I missed that mission and never got the card. I think it's possible to missions out of sequence and other missions never come up as a result. Early on I was supposed to talk to this hermit for information on how to get to a plateau. While exploring the area I hit some sort of anomaly purely by chance, wound up on the plateau and the talk to the hermit mission disappeared. It didn't show up as active, completed, or failed. It was just gone! My main Pripyat gripes- lots of buildings but very few were actually accessible. The ones you could get in had limited places you could explore. The other gripe was bodies started disappearing almost immediately. I would encounter a dozen mixed Mercs and Monolith troops and had a hell of an enjoyable fire fight. When I would go looking for bodies to loot I would be lucky to find two or three. Even the exit is a massive firefight from one end of Pripyat to the other. After the choppers leave, not a body can be found. I still playing in free-play mode. I've seen everything there is to see, explored all there is to explore. The only fun is the far too infrequent massive firefights against Mercs and Monolith or between Bandits, Stalkers, Freedom, and Duty.

Since this is the STALKER:CoP moddb, I thought it would be a good place to let people know about my STALKER:CoP mod, RCOM. It is primarily a ballistics/realism/AI/damage modeling/ect mod, but as that has started to come together other features/content are being added. Feedback is always encouraged! :)

This is an amazingly good game, but...

I just hate how linear the storyline is. You get to choose bandit/stalker at the start, but duty and freedom give you f*ck all. And even with 3 huge areas, the game is over incredibly quickly. Pripyat itself is barren and utterly boring. I spent 3 hours camped on the roof of the X lab building with my Dragunov and saw two groups of 3 people. A group of psi dogs then spawned right behind me, on the roof (which is full of electrical anomalies) and tore me to pieces.

The sad fact is that that this game never provides common ground. You're either on a rooftop with a clear view of the enemy and out of the AI's visual range, or you're caught by a sudden crushing onset of snorks that spawn right next to you, often spawning visually on screen.
Bloodsuckers are harder to hit, but nowhere near as scary as they were before. Once you realize the crosshair still changes red when it passes over them, the fear goes out the window.
Once you finish the first mercenary mission (Kill mercs, grab PDAs and laptop), the game is no longer a challenge, and the scenarios are barely fun.
Where's the replay value in these huge areas? Groups of enemies do respawn, but only in some places.

Since that brilliant shootout at the hospital, I haven't gone back. Why? No enemies or neutral stalkers use it. At all. In over 20 runs past it I've seen one chimera and no people. Pointless.

Yes, it's bigger. Yes, it's more stable. Yes, in many ways it can be called better. But it can no longer be called S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in my book.

At the very least they should add a few more missions after Strelok arrives.

This is the most stable version of STALKER there is. Get it, especially if you loved the first two STALKER games or SHoC, at least.

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.
