I don't wanna take "the nay-sayer" role, but no matter how beautiful the image seem in this one (and the images ARE beautiful), my personal feeling is that I wouldn't like to see too much sunshafts (like in the main page video - seems like through the fog) or too much wet (actually - mirror-wet :) "after-rain" reflections. Gives too much Clear Sky feeling. As for me, it definitely loses vs. dark and depressing feeling you get from builds and Lost Alpha.
No matter what I wrote above, the job done is simply amazing. I'd only like to see these imagery for hour or two per in-game day.
I agree to all voices saying "don't hurry + let's wait + let the finished LA be released" after simply looking at the map! Indeed, it's a masterpiece per se, I cannot even IMAGINE what's really *in* there. My personal feeling when I saw the poll on the main site was so much confused with bitterness that I voted for "release at least something" but now I am definitely pro waiting and supporting the guys in every way possible (by the way, donations part looks different now).
Good luck and let's take our +3 patience artifacts on our belts again!
man, no insult intended - I'm telling you from the Russian speaker perspective. Just the perception of how it's written.
hey, I could help if u're interested. PM if you're serious about it.
Look at the sonar on the Niva's roof! It says:
- Prishlo vremia! Ya vizhu tvoio zhelanie!
man, these clouds and the sun... I'm speechless and drooling more and more
do it! announce it! u keep us on our toes already!!!
Accuracy should go way down if they're fast strafing with or without iron sights, but this kind of fast strafing looks necessary to me. What's bad with this kind of realism or hardcoring? Especially in the dez0lated Zone with small number inhabitants - it's but vital for their chances to stand player's attacks.
I think it should vary from faction to faction: Duty and Army should never perform "berserk" attacks, but Monolith or Bandits (or even Freedom) might do that all right - as they are really unruly ones.
THAT'S A HORRIBLE THOUGHT!!!
80 8O D: D;
The guys who will give us this joy had it "spoiled" from the very beginning!...
They are martyrs then!
I don't think it's too sophisticated for STALKER and it "sounds" cool in my screen as well!
Thanks a lot man!!!
I always thought it was a remix for "Fighting the Unknown" by Firelake - the flute part reminded me the original.
sorry, been inattentive))
maybe got too much inattentive...
Well, what do you think Chelyabinsk has to do with Estonian chemically contaminated location?
Maps.google.com.ua - this is where Chelyabinsk. I think you know where Estonia is better than me.
Thanks for the link.
Frankly - I'd put the Pripyat "graffiti makers" behind bars for life. Do their "masterpieces" mean at least something? Do they express the horror of leaving your home for good? Are they filled with misery and pain of those who participated in disaster recovery and never received even the proper treatment? Are those made of pure compassion or of selfish desire to show "hey, I got balls enough to get into the dangerous and contaminated area and put my writing on some wall!"?
In my opinion, Pripyat is BY ITSELF a monument of grief and misery, lost (or stolen) future and lost hopes. Nothing extra can deepen or mitigate the sadness or the desperate memories it brings.
why is that, may I ask?
why do u all say he's annoyed? it's the welcoming/greeting gesture. Is my East European understanding of gestures so different from your West European? :) he's looking at the "photographer" and saying:
- Heeey! It's good you came! I've just finished vanilla L.I.F.E. - look, the final credits and screen are still there. And yeah, Lost Youth will be out in few months only! Cant wait for the release!
I guess LA will be an eye-opener in many ways for many people. And yeah, it already opened my eyes on R1.
I thought it cannot get better. It can.
Thank you, dez0wave
you're right but it's NO SKYBOX!!! IT'S SKYYYY!!!)))
I would say LA skies are the best I've seen in STALKER series.
But I simply cannot tell r1 from r2))
this one is simply perfect! even the dot in the center has its sacred meaning: "It is not a posed photo. It is just a screenshot, a 1/60 (or even less, 1/90)images per second of a PLAYABLE game"
Sidorovich in stalker outfit commanded few scientists in his past, I guess
good doggie! see, I even raised my pistol!...
man I love the curvature and the asphalt texture of your Kordon!
By the way, speaking of foliage! In vanilla you can actually hide well enough in a bush! Even south to Kordon broken railway bridge - the foliage surrounding two tall trees on both sides of the asphalt road is GOOD ENOUGH to hide!
Playground.ru - is this what it's all about???
hey hey hey! Screw tight your vodka bottle caps and calm down (+1 to S.E.V.A.). Talks of "official" with no links are same as Marked one starting sales dialogue with Sidorovich, selling or buying nothing and then annoyed Sid goes:
- Well, why didn't you bring empty cans then, he?!!
I can also go: oh, oh! and yesterday I met Yavorsky in Kiev and he was all in tears and depressed etc. and I asked him "hey dude! how's it goin'?" and he replied "all gone... no stalker... nothing... only darkness..." Then what?
For those not familiar with "Bandit polka"...
It's value for understanding of the whole setting of STALKER is around 10-20% of the value of the "Roadside Picnic". I might exaggerate but a certain percent is definitely there.
When heard for the first time in CS, it gave me the widest smile in my gaming experience - I've really met NOTHING more authentic than that "jail chanson" (in post-soviet area it's called simply chanson but it'd be too much abusive for the original "chanson" term and the music altogether). It only lacks really awful hoarse vocals and it's a perfect example of what bandits and their wannabes listen to here.
Anybody from CIS - please bury this comment if I'm wrong. But please be honest and DO NOT BURY it if I'm right :)
Good hunting, stalkers
