That was actually done on purpose. Weapon names and types are registered trademarks of their producers. GSC couldn't use them without permission.

There is the end of the world scheduled on Dec 2012 so highly unlikely. Sorry, no Happy New Year either :)

Are we developing STALKER 2? No! So stop asking questions about S2 or GSC. This is not the place for that. We are not a part of this company.

Yes it has something like that. Surfaces during rain seem a bit shinier and seem to reflect the sky a bit more. It's just a HDR texture trick but this is all we can do.

It's your personal feeling. We respect that. But please stop guessing an telling us why. Some of us are doing CGI graphics for 20 years already so we know what we are doing.

You can check the log. Without the log I can't really help you. Make sure you've unpacked the installer with latest wirRar or 7zip preferably. If you merged AF3 with other mods other than Absolute texture packs it could break it.

That's a bit strange as the configs of AF3 are almost the same as AF2.1 so the lighting should be the same. It could be just impression as you used to AF2.1 sun position.
Regarding that you can restore the vanilla sun positions by restoring the render dlls from bin/dll_backup. Just be aware that you won't see the moon anymore, the sun won't match the sky-boxes orientation and the hours of the sunrise and sunset won't match the appropriate textures. Especially on sunset which is 2h earlier in AF3 than vanilla.

Absolute Texture Packs are not included in AF3. Download them separately from addons section and install. They are compatible with AF3. They are just texture packs. There is no change in engine grass distance. The trick is to make the grass more visible in the distance and blend it with the ground so it appears like it was drawn further.
BTW MISERY has exactly the same grass draw distance as vanilla.

Problem is that each shader set require different user.ltx settings to look OK. On one shader set everything looks too 'oily' so gloss_factor needs to be lowered. Other is too bright so lumscale and tonemap settings need to be adjusted etc.

Frankly, each of us have different shaders installed tweaked to our liking and we haven't decided yet which shaders will be included in LA by default (or option). The New Year's video was shot on sky4CE but since we have the policy not to add any 3rd party work in LA it definitely won't be included.

In Atmosfear3? No.
AtmosFear only changes the weather and adds some effects. SRP could be merged with AF3 manually.

Water in LA won't be irradiated in general. There could be patches of radiation where the water stands still for a long time or near the big metal objects that accumulate the radiation. Running water like rivers or streams won't be irradiated.

Yes it is. It is something between v2 and v3. Correct sun position for the summer but no addons as blowouts, psi storm and fallout. Full version maybe will follow later.
