Nice screen but i must say that bridge is physically impossible, a real world bridge would break easily if only suspended on a side like that, the height on the right side would break it near the center (more probable) or break the pillar near the ground (less probable).

I'm certain they are including on that figure, level geometry and small objects like trash tools and stuff, not only characters and weapons. And Gameplay needs animations and that is a department they seam to be low on, has he said is better to show no gameplay then to show bad gameplay and give a bad impression of the game.

Went to see some real stalker screens and now i know why i have this felling, in the original stalker the environments are oppressive with shades of green on some places, gray and brown on others, it feels like the air is poisonous and dangerous, imo on Cryzone at lest on some shots that feeling is gone, the colors are more lively and the zone looks less dangerous.

You are not forced to donate so why are you complaining? If you don't donate you will still play the mod for free, on DLC's if you don't pay you don't play, and if you donate at least you will have some recognition on the mod for your help. I don't see nothing bad with this for the contrary and is a way for modders to have a incentive to better the mod and then self's.

p.s -You guys also need to realize that you are not buying the mod (game) nor the promise of its completion (but it will sure make the mod team think twice before calling quits), so imo think of this donations more has a small risk investment.

He is right you know, the shot from your mod looks more friendly, like is a shot from a quiet family neighborhood in a sundy afternoon, i mean it lacks that feeling that theres bad radiation on the air, that is dangerous to walk there, and all because of the blue skybox, if you used the Vanilla skybox them imo it would look much better.

About Valve not doing this kind of work, they could, they certainly have good artists, the problem is that a full game has to have a limite to how much time you can spend detailing a level, because of money and performance constraints, remember this mod will have very little in terms of AI, NPC's, etc.

Just to clarify a doubt, are you saying is more scary if you have the option to fight the monsters than not have the option?

If yes i don't concur at all with you, i found Amnesia ten times scarier than penumbra because i could not fight at all. Having said that i'm certainly not against some clever ways to "fight" the monsters that do not include hand to hand combat, for example be able to loke enemies inside rooms or set traps for them to fall into, but hand to hand combat or guns is a no no to me on a true Penumbra or Amnesia inspired game.

Did i replied in a bad day to deserve that kind of response?
My comment was not meant to cause this kind of reply from you but to give you feedback, if you don't concur with it that is your right but a professional developer would atlest reply in a respectful manner and say something akin to, "Thanks for the comment but that is our artistic vision, and we think it represents our goal for the game better." Ok i would comprehend that.

And by the way i never said to make a mohawk, that is characterized by hair being vertical and indeed looks ridiculous, what i was refering to was to hair coming down the sides (almost like a horse hair) from the back but let some skin from the ribcage come through that would give a more menacing look to the dinosaur compared to what it is now imo.

yes but in real life shadows are not pitch black they have bounced light from the environment so a real night vision mode does make shadows less dark, you could apply a extra ambient light to the level to make shadows less black when the goggles are on and hide it when they are off, don't know if this is doable on the stalker engine tho.

Hum, Thanks for the suggestion but even with crossfire disabled performance is still very bad, do you have a Nvidia GPU, what is your fps's when looking to the center of the room? It could certainly be a combination of an AMD OpengL driver problem with your game, plus the fact that you have, imo, to many shadow casting lights, visible at the same time when we look to the center of the room, i counted a total of 6 that is overkill, for example when i look to the corners where you have a single light, performance jumps considerably from 8 fps's to more than 40 fps's. Please don't take this wrong but you should not have more than 4 shadow casting lights visible per frame, you should also be careful with overlapping light volumes, i know this because i'm modding the idtech 4 engine and this engine is very similar, if you enable the r_showoverdraw command and look to the center you will see what i mean.

The problem like i said is not visual difference even tho you will find that some more advanced effects like Parallax Occlusion Mapping and others do not work with SM1.1, the problem is that SM 1.1 shaders are so old (like i said SM 1.1 is dx7/dx8.1) that GPU makers don't care about anymore, so driver support will be hit and miss, especially on more modern GPU's. Your GPU supports SM 2.0 and if it runs well then use that path instead because that is dx9a or dx9b, SM 3.0 is dx9c and GPU makers still support it well. By doing so you will have two benefits, first assurance that GPU makers will still support your game on their drivers, and the ability to implement more advanced shader effects if you so desire.

That is sad to know about the 64bits OS problems, but i still don't know what you mean by absolute pitch black transparent, does LS3D use alpha maps by the means of a black and white image where black is transparent and white is opaque? Perhaps you are referring to the lack of alpha blending where instead of only a black and white texture you can also have a grayscale one? The jagged edge you are referring to is a black outline around alpha images? If so use this trick to get rid of the problem just extend colors in the texture outward into transparent areas by one pixel (or more).

Decals are just a plane with a alpha mapped image some units above the surface, so if you used that trick before there is nothing preventing you from using it again.

You are free to disagree of course but imo is all a matter of gameplay, is all fine and dandy when you give choice to the player and i'm not certainly against big number of guns but problems arise when you include ones that unbalance the gameplay, when you can get them early on (is not the reason here tho has E.Nigma42 explained).

Argoon Aug 4 2014, 7:18pm says:

Hum, imo they are overpowered, even if in real life they are like that, with a automatic pistol like this i don't need a normal pistol or a submachine gun, and so this kind of weapons become useless. IMO you guys instead of trying to implement all kind of weapons that exist in the world, think of the kind of impact they will have on the gameplay and try to only implement the ones that give something to the gameplay but do not retract from it, again just my opinion and advice but the final word is yours.

But this is why i think this kind of weapons should not be included.

1 - IMO they make normal pistols and submachine guns useless (because is a pistol and a submachine gun in one).

2 - By making the above guns useless you don't need to carry them so it has an impact on the carry capacity (gives you more room to carry other stuff) and so gamers will try to get them early on has possible.

3 - The way to make them less available to counteract the problems mentioned above would be to make them more expensive (You could make them very rare tho) than the other weapons, and why would a automatic pistol be more expensive than say a MP5 submachine gun?

Now i must say this, i'm following you for sometime now and has always your normal maps are very exaggerated and makes your textures look very noisy and ugly, you should really think about toning down the normal mapping strength because it will have a large impact on how people will perceive your game, also the wood beam on the ceiling has the textures in the wrong direction. I hope my criticism instead of making you be mad at me and ignore my suggestions, make you see what you can improve and so make your game look much better.

I have no doubt this is the Morrowind engine, but to me it looked like the oblivion engine heavily modded. :D
Also some of the assets look models straight from oblivion, so that also help the illusion.

And just to show that is the art that make the game not the engine.

I'm not a woman and i'm also not a natural English speaker, so if you don't want a strong accent on your voice acting i don't think i can be of any use to you, but i will say this the English quote you have above is full of syntax errors.

IMO It should be something like this.

"Often I Hide myself in a secret room in the prison. I can take a rest here. I'm studying black magic for around two months now. No one knows about it, knows that I learned how to make hard wood start to rot and decay. My father (dad) was a very intelligent man, he constructed this place only (just) for me. In the future I want to be as dangerous as he was. People will fear (be scared of) me, even my brother and my friends. I feel it, I feel my power growing. Everyone will pay me tribute, Kate." "

Why is that a good news for modders? Unity afaik has no modding support built in, you can't download the Unity editor or engine and mod a already out Unity Game.

Imo Unity is a danger for modders, and it is picking so much rep that everyone and their mother are now using it. Theres much better inexpensive engines out there if modding support is a fact, for example C4 engine, Esenthel and NeoAxis are very good engines with nice modding capabilities, especially the C4 engine.

I don't know how you are making the models for this or what the engine supports or not, but you shouldn't need 90.000x90.000 textures (is not even possible btw GPU's can only render till 8192x8192), if you can give different materials to surfaces is totally possible to bake shadows on the models without sacrificing resolution, if you can't then the only other way i know is using a second uv channel to drive the lightmapps but the engine need to support that.
