Well, my names David and I live in a small outback town in NSW, Australia. I've always had a passion for gaming, computers and technology in general and I'm also quite the history and firearms expert, despite my age. I'm a nice guy, and always willing to give a hand, so if you do need any help, whether that be background knowledge, firearms statistics or even just someone to talk to shoot me a PM and I'll get back to you when I can.

I was once a young, and not incredibly bright fellow.

I somehow got the idea that ground coffee would be amazing to snort, thus in a fit of stupidity I did exactly that. I snorted a small mountain of ground coffee off of the kitchen bench in one hit.

It was like snorting disgusting tasting rocks. I was sneezing and coughing up coffee for days. Coffee is also not blow. Don't try it.

My Rangers have informed me of the location of two stashes, one in close proximity to Skadorsk, the other further out.

The transmission to LRZPG Headquarters is as followed;

Stashes located. [Stop.]
Dock Crane, up high. Heavy load. [Stop.]
Processing Bridge, underneath. Light equipment. [Stop.]
Rangers out. [Transmission ends.]

More Stashes are to follow as we can free up Rangers from other tasks.

Freedom. The Hippies of the Zone tend to carry, from my observation, more sniper like weaponry than Duty. Also, siding with them tends to mean Hawaiian sells gear along the lines of SVU's and SVD's.

Working hard on another short story for you all. I'd just like to take a minute to thank the N.Aaroe for the support he has been giving and offering. Be sure to leave feedback about my stories, and I'll keep providing them! Happy hunting, Stalkers.

It's in the Vanilla game, so it's not added by Misery. I believe it to be some kind of cooling unit from my time spent around machinery with my father and grandfather.

I also experienced this. It would seem A-life spawns Bandit squads under the bridge (in the camp). Having detected a hostile they flood the Station, hunting you. Best advice; Loot a lot of stuff, then run.

Although difficult to distinguish between their are in fact differences. The colour of uniforms and head gear are pretty good indicators after quite a bit of game time.

But, nevertheless good luck Stalker!

But...*starts to whisper* word around the camp says that once you get enough money Owl carries them. They're pretty rare though.

Good luck Stalker.

I personally prefer the AS Val, if you can find one. Low-ish recoil, decent penetration with AP rounds and a potential 30 round clip.

Strap a scope onto her and you've also got a decent short-mid range sniper. My Recon always uses one.

Word will spread of your deeds in the zone, even one murder can turn a faction against you as they can't spare a single man and someone willing to bump off one of their number is a serious threat.

If you have killed Stalkers in the area they will lock up and won't talk to you for at least 3 in game days. You're on your own, Stalker. You'll have to live on scavenged gear and food. Also, all factions may be hostile. Keep watch, and don't forget to jump on the forums if you need help locating supplies.

I dipped my fingers in the pool of blood, bringing it up to nose to sniff. It's close, I muttered to myself. I stood and checked Uegene was loaded. He was. Pretty little thing, he was. A customized camo painted M1911 named after an old friend who'd died of cancer a few weeks before he was to travel with my group to the zone. My thought's were interrupted by a snarl from the bushes to my left. My instincts kicked in and I threw myself to the side as a snarling figure hurled itself over my head reaching for me as it flew. As it landed I was already on my feet, pounding away towards the hill. My heavy breathes fogged the visor of my combat helmet as yet more snarls reverberated through my ear piece. "Run, now." The stern voice in my headset was not to be ignored so I pushed harder, my feet throwing mud left and right as I pushed through the mush that made up so much of the ground in this Miserable place.

Half way. Thump. Thump. Garrrhghghghghhh. Another snarl. Oh god. That one was closer. I pushed harder... Thump.Thump.Thump. Go, I screamed to myself. Go man go. I crested the hill and jumped.

My legs buckled. I fell. I coughed, gasping for air. A claw scrapped against the outer layer of my Bulat Suit. I tried to scream, but that caused me to cough more. I buried the pistol into the eye piece of it's gas mask, and said it's brain skywards with a single pull of the trigger. The mutant slumped but it's friends still came. Snarling, scratching. Right up until that F1 landed in front of some of them.

Cardan stepped out of a bush, firing his AK like a possessed man. One Snork. Two. A third ugly bastard. Then, all was quiet. He walked up to me, pulled the Snork off of me and hoisted me up to my feet. He spat in his hand and affectionately rubbed the blood off of my visor whilst laughing. "That was close," he chuckled "but you always were a tough bastard, Barge."

Is there a way we can add flares? I think it'd be cool if I could drop a few flares around in my 'base', or out in the killing fields of the surrounding area. Maybe they could attract mutants and NPC's, so...Using them is a double edged sword.

Me and N. Aaroe had a small chat a while back about a moveable light source, how did that work out mate?

Ok, so I have a few ideas, but I'm not sure if they've been suggested before;

1. Trader/Mechanic Ideas: Could we have an option to aqquire broken weapons for Mechanics, and sell them for parts? Or, maybe a discount of some kind?
Would it be possible to set up a system with say, Owl, where the player can order certain rarer items, like spare ammunition, a 'box' of 12 grenades, a hunting knife for skinning animals, stuff like that?

2. Location Ideas: Would it be possible to place a sniper atop of Skadorsk, who kills nearby roaming animals, to add realism? (You're not really going to want a pack of wild dogs setting up camp near your base, are you...?)

3. Misc Ideas: Here's my biggest idea, and possibly the coolest. Now, would it be possible to implement a feature of investing money in the stalker bases? Now, hear me out... The supply situation in Skadorsk and Jupiter is obviously pretty dodgy, and I think it'd be cool if there was a feature that allowed the player to literally 'upgrade' the Stalker bases. For example, Beards Tea, now Beard obviously doesn't really make a lot of the stuff, but say an enterprising Stalker decided to give him a few thousand rubles to set up a small growing station on Skadorsk...The player gets access to slightly more tea, Beard makes more money, and the Modders get a cool reason to be able to arse around with different 'plans' for Skadorsk... Just an idea, aye?

Feedback is welcome.
