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.

Would be nice if i could play this game because it has been on my shelf for ages and i have installed it only once and have never played because everytime i un it i only see the little splash screen and it exits to windows immediately whit no error messagers, nothing. But Clear Sky works great and Call of pripyat works great too but its in all russian so its a little hard to play.

Hi everyone.

As you may know, there are a couple of global mods for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
Super Mod Pack, STALKER Complete 2009 and L.U.R.K. all seem to be great, bringing back some of the features that did not make it to the final release but were planned when the game was still in the making, and revamping it's less polished aspects, while even adding new cool features. I was wondering if you can give your opinion about the ones you played, compare them, point out their pros and cons, etc.

Thanks in advance

Out of all of them I'd go for Lurk. I haven't played SMP, only the original Oblivion Lost. Stalker complete certainly is a good mod on its own right, but I find Lurk to be that and so much more, and that the graphics are also still superior to Complete.

I've only played the SMP, but my impression is:

LURK - Pretty much the ambitious, unfinished one. I mean, they added an entire stealth system. Attempts to cherry pick the best parts of the other mods.

SMP - Oblivion Lost, plus the Arsenal and AMK mods and a bunch of other crap thrown in for good measure. Eats through ram like it was nothing.

Complete - The one to go for if you like your graphics shiny. Plays the most like the original game for better or worse.
