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.

Why is there no mention of the amazing "STALKERSOUP" mod, by the talented TecnoBacon and his Team?

Because it's a pain in the *** to find and get it running. Why isn't STALKERSOUP on ModDB?

If you're still looking, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Complete is pretty much exactly what you ask for. It improves visuals and gameplay by a good margin, and is the mod that remains the closest to the Vanilla experience. Highly recommended, but the Complete mods do require a good machine to be ran sufficiently.

It was the first mod I tried and finished and I agree 100% with your comments. I have found a few other mods now GOSE, Stalkersoup & Spartan 11 11. I have just have to except most stalker mods made are a lot bloody harder.

Mostly because they want to add the experience of actual survival in Stalker (besides Soup's Wizard-like difficulty) that the games dont really get into very well. Not many STALKER mods expand on/improve Vanilla besides Complete, albeit Ive never really used that one.
