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.

Second patch for
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha
has been released!

Here is long awaited second patch for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha. Here are some very important facts about it:

  • Due to the changes in storyline and engine, it's required to start a new game after you installed this update.
  • Your previous saves will not work.
  • This patch is cumulative, so you don't need to install the previous (1.30013) patch at all.
  • The patch installer will wipe out your gamedata directory so backup whatever mods you've installed
  • Beware, mods made for 1st patch will not work with this 2nd patch until mod makers make them compatible. We can not give support in this case.

Hello everybody.

I have played S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: SOC a long time ago without mods, only with Patch 1.005 but gave up because of the poor weapon accuracy. Then I installed Oblivion Lost 2.2 and loved it, all the new features and weapons were amazing. Then I tried L.U.R.K. 1.1 and loved it aswell.

Recently I ordered CS and COP and am planning to play through the whole series.

Can experienced players recomend the best mods for every game to enjoy the story without bugs, but not changing the core gameplay?

After I finish the series, I would like to play one of the 3 games as an open world game, with a high quality mod that adds a lot of content. Which of the 3 games with which mod do you recomend to use as a sandbox? I would I was looking at COP with the Misery mod, but I am also waiting for Lost Alpha and L.U.R.K. for SOC.

Thank you in advance.

personally i believe the stalker complete mod is the best for having no bugs, realistic weapon accuracy and damaage, and improving the graphics and sound while keeping the atmosphere intact

For COP I would definitely play Misery I cannot recommend this mod enough, it's amazing. I would suggest waiting for Misery 2.0 though. Good hunting Stalker!

i played first few missions and seems like an AWESOME mod. i'll start over again tomorrow, so i don't screw the quests and acquire enough food, because hunger comes up more often, than in original.
a question: side quest, where you have to shoot dogs around the place near the military guarded bridge. can someone give me any tips, how to hunt em? i shoot one-two and others just run away and i can't find them anymore.

I warmly recommend the mod pack 2013 to every s.t.a.l.k.e.r. fan! i think it's...better than the complete mod (even with a few small bugs)
