Part 1 of the biggest texture mod for STALKER, Shadow Of Chernobyl

  • Name: PRZ2 (Photo Realistic Zone 2)
  • Version:
  • Game Version(s): Any
  • Creator: LoNer1, Argus, Cromm Cruac
  • Release Date: 22nd of Feb, 2013


Hello fellow S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S...

I want to take a moment of your precious hunting time to introduce my newest project, Photo Realistic Zone². Many of you know the original mod, made by Argus, and consisted of the "Structures" pack and the "Creatures" pack. I took both of these textures packs, with some other high resolution textures from Cromm Cruac and merged them all together, as a base for my mod.

Now, I didn't take the textures from various packs, merged them and took credit for them. I followed various texturing tutorials, recognizing different materials, usability of photo's, making my own textures with various other textures, making seamless textures etc. etc. I've come a far way, from making my very first weapon skins to my latest works.

Some other tutorials I followed...

"There is a lot more to texturing than you think. You need to have a keen eye for shapes and design, you need to know traditional art theory, you need to be great at observing and picking apart things, and you need to know how to balance your shapes, among many other skills." - racer455
So with that in mind, I'd like to welcome you to my newest project, old followers, newcomers, everyone. Please, be sure to leave as much feedback as possible so I can imrpove even more. I need you guys in order to make a balanced texture pack, because I am sure most of you guys wont agree on every new texture I make.

So again, welcome both old and new, to the Photo Realistic Zone²



Should be compatible with every mod.

Installation Procedure 1:

If you already have a gamedata installed, follow step 2. If not, follow step 1 :)

1. NON-modded stalker version:

If you've never used mods, go into your stalker dir, mine's

"C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl"

And open up:"FSgame.ltx"

Change the first line to this:

"$game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\"

Now the game will use data from the "gamedata" folder, instead of the .db (.database) files :)

Now, copy parts 1,2,3 into your directory, i've set it all up. If it asks to overwrite the current gamedata folder, just do so :)

Installation Procedure 2:

If you already have a gamedata with textures in it, don't mind the fsgame.ltx switch.

Backup your original files and overwrite the 3 parts in the textures folder :)


  • BAC9-FLCL, He's been a huge, huge help to me in the development of this mod.
  • Argus, For his textures
  • Cromm, for his valuable advice and permission to use his textures :)
  • Meltac, for his shaders making my stuff look even better!

Optional Links / addons:

Some links to stuff which looks great in combination with PRZ2:

Something awesome about this pack is, is that you can already install it :) You wont have the full package, but you can play while downloading the rest!

Also, I enabled community media adding, so if you want to add images like wallpapers with the mod (you HAVE to have the hud turned off tho) or bugs, post them to the images section. This will make it easy for me to spot the bug(s). Just name the screenshot "BUG with [level name here]"

We need more download options.
I suggest Zippyshare, free and very easy to use.

Why? I think Gamefront is fast enough.

The problem is not speed, but availability.
Gamefront seems to be overloaded. I've been trying for hours and i still haven't managed to start the download of Part 1.

I'm "hurting" inside, i want to rock this with StalkerSoup ASAP. :P

I realize this is compatible with the COMPLETE mod, but I am wondering specifically how I install this over that mod and get everything to work ok.

Also. what sort of system requirements am I going to need to run this mod?

Thanks in advance,
