Beac
Beac Feb 22 2015, 11:08am says:

My overall aim for mutant behaviour is for a basis in realism, and improved interaction with Stalkers (and the player).
Mutants should alternate between searching for food/territory in the day, and hiding/resting in their lairs at night (reversed for certain mutants, as in the image). In vanilla, there was no real distinction in these behaviours for some reason.

What I've done is separate smart terrains into mutant territories, and mutant lairs.
Territories are usually outside, and often places that Stalkers will camp during the day, or search for artifacts.
Lairs are almost always inside buildings, sheds, or underground - Stalkers can sometimes camp at these locations overnight if they are too far from a proper 'base', but more information about Stalker behaviours in Part Two!

Overall, these changes should make for more realistic mutant behaviour with certain mutants hiding indoors in the day and coming out at night to hunt, with others doing the reverse.
Watch out when you venture down into that basement in the middle of the day, there may well be a bloodsucker waiting for night-time down there!

As well as better foliage models and textures, Wormwood will also feature a lot more of it!

Expect hundreds of new trees and bushes in each level, with little FPS drop thanks to their optimised nature.

Now the Zone of the game will look a lot more like the Zone of real life!

I was out and about in the Zone waiting for one of the crashes to happen and stumbled upon this rather pretty scene at sunset!

After I took it a group of Stalkers zombified by the recent emission attacked Shevchenko, but the brave loners inside managed to fend them off. A-Life!

If you missed the stream, the idea for the sawmill is that Freedom attempted to establish a forward outpost in Zaton, to match Duty's. During construction, a controller attacked the base, wiping out the expeditionary force and zombifying them all.

You can help Freedom out by retaking the Sawmill, allowing Freedom to regain their foothold in the region, creating a hub for increased Freedom a-life in Zaton!

(also, you can always kill them all later and open the new base up to random a-life)

Radiation levels now increase slowly through simply being in the Zone, simulating the ambient low-level radiation present in the environment.

Utilising artifacts, eating and drinking irradiated consumables, and frequenting localised radiation hotspots will all add to this underlying ambient radioactivity, which you will need to control using the various tools now at your disposal.

Are you ready to Descend into Darkness again, Stalkers?

This is our little Christmas present to you, to thank you for all your support over the last week of our first attempt at getting anywhere in Mod of the Year.

Our aim with Lab X-12 is to really make you feel the same feelings you felt when you first stepped into X-18 in Shadow of Chernobyl - not knowing what lay below you, or if you'd ever see the sunlight again.

Hopefully you'll agree the entrance to the lab provides this feeling!

A late one tonight! Here you can see the first of our brand new caliber-specific suppressors, the .45 ACP 'Bronson Boomslang'. The Boomslang is based on a very distinctive real-life silencer, expertly modelled by our newest team member, Virgil. We're very excited to have him on the team, and he's already producing excellent work as you can see!

We're planning a total of seven caliber-specific suppressors to replace the illogical 'universal silencer' in the vanilla game. You'll be able to buy these new items from traders, as well as find them in the world and being used by NPCs.

Something a little different this time, this is just a nice shot of one of the brand new areas we've created for the mod - a fleshed out smaller warehouse building in the Jupiter Factory complex.
The factory itself was processing a lot of stuff, so surely they needed somewhere to store things, right? Well, now you can explore it.
This area has a fire, so Stalkers will dynamically come here and camp for a while.
With more places like these, there should be a lot more interesting gameplay around the factory complex.

I'm tuning the RWS, but I don't see why experienced bandits shouldn't occasionally have heavy weaponry ;)

This patch replaces v1.05! If you have v1.05, over-write with this patch! If you have anything pre-v1.05, download this patch instead of v1.05!

It was, but unfortunately one silly bug slipped through from a last-minute addition (the ranger station crash) and the Snag Box crash which seems like my changes in the files weren't saved :P

You also don't need to start a new game for any of these - I'll make it clear if a new game is required (which it really shouldn't ever be for a patch).

Do you mean the cone of the light? It's already really small, any smaller and it would just be annoying, I think.

I'm not sure what you mean, are you saying we should use models that are out there already? We much prefer to create as much of our content as we can to ensure the best quality, and we don't want to have pages and pages of content used from other sources.

We are 100% aiming for a 2015 release, and will do so if the quality of the mod is at a level we're pleased with. No promises however, it's done when it's done.
