chiffmonkey @ Lost Alpha Update

We're talking about the same GSC that didn't want to fund Stalker 2. Hardly surprising that they'd be dicks about it.

The Zombie GSC lives on selling merchandise.

Though stalkers are in general an incredible subculture group, there are a fair share of absolute bastards.

Sergey Grigorovich included

I hope LA still manages to serve as an incredible Resume/CV piece for you guys. :) Heck you're currently #1 on ModDB, that's hardly bad for marketing.

They call me Mr Optimist.

Yep, the one who apparently didn't want S2. What a fool.

I'm sorry guys, some of the things I've said here are a pure reflection of the fact that I'm bipolar, and that Stalker is one of the few things I've ever found that helps me control it. Dezowave have my utmost respect and admiration, as fine selfless community people. I'm only concerned for Lost Alpha because of how much the project means to me, after Stalker 2 and S.M.R.T.E.R. faded away, then Survarium changed course. A big thankyou and apology to you all. I won't post negatively again. :)

What's so frustrating with Lost Alpha is it could take another 4 years yet I come back day after day with no idea what's going on. For all we know the project could still die due to legalities. The Septempber kerfuffle was a real kick in the teeth and... I'm just bored of this now. Considering stopping even checking this page anymore.

All Ghillied Up. Which is actually a more accurate layout of the zone, with the NPP being the correct direction from Hotel Polesei unlike SoC.

But the existing materials are stuck in a legal no-man's land because the devs aparrently weren't paid for making all of them.

Why does Vostok's version of events completely contradict this then? Are they just butthurt?

I understand that they earned plenty enough from CoP to make Stalker 2 and so what they did was outright unacceptable from the point of view of a fan. Stalker 2 was CANCELLED very clearly, not frozen. The devs were making it for no pay at one point but noting came of it. For a games company to not care about the games... well then I have no interest in them either. To continue to sell merch after that was just plain rude. I therefore DO NOT trust whatever skeleton of a GSC remains and hope they don't ruin this amazing mod too.

Why did everyone else suddenly start loving this traitor GSC?

"Vintar: GSC is closed? I will have to tell that to the guys working there, seems they never heard..."

That's what we all heard, I thought that's why S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was cancelled and Vostok was formed?

I'm very worried if S2 was cancelled in favour of Lost Alpha even as amazing as I'm sure it will be.

The Faction Pack has a less linear Polis Stalker (heh) mission.

The worst part is the ones that are nearly done then suddenly die.
Like S.M.R.T.E.R. 0.45

That part is the most worrying too, seeing as Grygorovich basically abandoned the S2 devs. I will never forgive him for that.

I still just want to know what went so hideously wrong with the mod last September that prevented a release for coming up on a year now, with no look of release being anytime soon. At the time it was reported that all that was left was bug-testing. It makes me worry that you're developing additional unnecessary features extending the delay ad-infinitum, and that is the key cause of vaporware.
