An aspiring game developer starting life as a humble modder, looking to build up a portfolio and break my way into the games industry.
Thanks very much for your kind words - I hope I can make the mod live up to your expectations, I'm sure going to try my best :)
I would personally recommend completing CoP Vanilla (or your slightly modded version) before playing Redux - CoP is the most playable-in-vanilla STALKER game yet, and it's a great experience even without mods.
Plus, it'll make you appreciate Redux even more when you see what the full game was like previously! :P
Thanks for the comment!
To answer your question, yes, the player will be able to go back and forth through the Underpass as often as they want (and are in fact encouraged to do so to access Pripyat - the guide's fees are a lot higher now!)
I know that in the story, the Underpass is deemed inaccessible after passing through it, but I've decided that this is due to GSC's laziness and will ignore it :P
No problem! I'm glad to be there, you seem to be a great guy.
A packed night at the bar ;)
New main page background with a new matching header, and more screenshots uploaded!
Hehe - I like the kind old man that helped the Stalker out most, followed by Wayfarer's tale.
Congratulations again mate, you're well deserving! Also it's just one heart ;)
You'll have to wait and see them in game! :P
So the Conversation Contest is over, and judging will begin tommorow! Thanks to everyone who participated!
24 hours remaining to enter the Conversation Contest! There's still time to win a beta key!
You'll have to test the weapons yourself and see ;)
I would quite like to make other attachments, but that might have to wait.
Great - the more the merrier :)
Even if you don't win, your story may very well be included, so everyone should keep asking those they meet to tell them stuff ;)
Glad to hear it :) Thanks for taking the time to say you appreciate the time I put into it :D
It's possible to port the maps, but it's hard and difficult work, and I don't really see that as being part of the Redux experience anyway, sorry.
It's not a three-person closed beta... This competition has three closed beta keys up for grabs.
Go ahead and send whatever you have, if you want to - I can have a go at molding a little to fit what I'm looking for, if you're o.k with that.
Whatever you like really, but it needs to be tellable by anyone in the faction you choose, e.g any random member of Freedom might say it.
Mail an entry and I'll tell you if it's right or not :)
Just send it the same way but mention that you don't want to win :)
Yes, that's fine.
Yes, if your story is good enough you may very well get into the mod anyway :)
I'm not planning on adding paths to the ferris wheel or anything like that, really - the area out there looks cool from inside the city but it's really not when you get out there :D It's not designed to be used and looks pretty terrible from the other direction ;)
Fair enough, but I am personally of the opinion that the vanilla Pripyat is simply boring and bland, and not even that atmospheric ;)
More military patrols in Pripyat in Redux :)
Thanks for the comments - I really like Strider too, the lore behind him is amazing and awesome.
I'm sure it's possible, but would require a lot of time and effort, which I'm sorry to say would currently be best spent on getting the arguably more important Redux features into the mod - it's a nice idea though, and I'll probably take a look at it for post-v1.0 release :)
I'm afraid I'm not sure if it's really possible :(
Don't worry - you can't join the Monolith. Let's say... you can pretend ;)
I agree with the sentiments about stocking up, but unfortunately, CoP is just too small. With only three zones, you're never far from supplies or a trader :( That said, there's not, and there won't be, a food/supplies trader in Pripyat.
1.0 release, I don't have any ETA I'm afraid, but it's coming along.
Take a look at the latest article: 'Bringing Life to the Dead City' - now in the News section.
Stay tuned and keep watching!
We will probably be adding a couple of new weapons, and new weapon variants, yes.
