It's that lack of deadlines and potential monetary gain that puts modding such a long way from the unfinnished churnware that seems to fill the gaming industry lately (I hate to admit it, but this happened even to Stalker, and it's the reason Lost Alpha is in development). The key difference is that Smrt actually cares about the quality of the finished product.
I hate to be the guy to derail the comments section, but Survarium's facebook page only needs 28 more likes until a big unveil! Facebook.com
Yes I know it's standalone but Dez definitely said it requires the disk to verify you haven't pirated the game and never said how it would work for Steam owners.
"I am so smart! I am so smart! S M R T!"
Maybe tell Smrtphoneusr? He's still at that kinda stage with Smrter 0.45, whereas LA is already in testing. Besides I have no doubt people will do their own flavour mod-mods for Lost Alpha post release that could include such features.
Thanks very much, I'll be sure to have a shufty at the weekend. :) Btw if you ever need stalkery sfx or music just message me, trying to build up a portfolio so doing stuff for free. :P
I'd describe this as a fourth game. Smrter seems to be more of an NS adversary.
Oh sweet I just friended him earlier without realising it was his screenie.
Let me guess, release will only be for physical stalker soc disk owners :/ I've been worrying about that for a while.
I too am worried about this. Aparrently it requires the disk to verify authentic game owner. :/ How the hell am I gonna find boxed stalker.
Heh I asked about scoring ages ago, no reply. soundcloud.com/chiffmonkey btw, got a couple of stalkery tracks up.
I've got so hyped there's no way this mod can live up to expectations. Or is there? :D
Wow geez a week! Could you tell me what resources are needed to start up stalker modding?
Always nice to see a contributor. Wish I knew how to mod. :/
Rostok Factory is actually in the game, but as a multiplayer map only. Predbannik is also a mashup of some other multiplayer maps with no sp counterparts.
I just love the amount of added gameplay to the existing fantastic environment that is slightly otherwise lacking in things to do. Now imagine more gameplay AND MORE ENVIRONMENT. :D
Ooh smexy header. Will there be a countdown clock? Or perhaps a countdown ferris wheel!
No BMS isn't dead, they just went into hiding to avoid getting shouted at to hurry up. Progress is definitely still underway.
I don't get it. Graphics have gotten better, but stalker still looks REAL.
Hands up if you dislike stalker. *Takes aim at any raised hands*
A lot of dead stuff. Generators?
So ask about what's been done recently, instead of sounding like you're preparing to pounce on smrt for a release :P
This probably goes in the face of everything any of you would agree with, but I actually think that could do the series more good than harm. After all CS was really just SoC 1.1, and CoP felt kinda like a bethesda game anyway.
The fact of the matter is Grygorovich WILL sell the rights to someone that isn't GSC. As far as gaming companies go, there's far worse. The only other place I can possibly see it going to is Crytek Ukraine (who are making Cryzone Sector 23 and somehow supposedly planning to go commercial with it? How is that possible without buying the stalker rights?)
The latest pics are relatively recent. Heck, the metro level video wasn't even THAT long ago.
I am a bloodsucker waiting at the end.
I'll just tweak for best results. The zone looks beautiful even on minimum settings. :)
I disagree, metro looks too... How should I put this. Shiny?
Stalker graphics on the other hand don't feel forced, and I never find myself looking at them as abnormal, they just feel perfect for the atmosphere.
Then again I think LoZ Wind Waker has the best graphics of any game so I may be a little bit of a poor judge. :P
'cause rotterdam is anwhere, people of the zone. :P
"We haven't tested it yet with Steam version."
:( I've never even seen the disk version. And presumably most now have it on steam not disk anyway.
So my point stands, will it work with Steam version? As there is no disk.
