It is a Frequently Asked Question, indeed.
The options and messages should be the same language as your localisation. If not, try to copy contents of gamedata\configs\text\eng to gamedata\configs\text\rus
That's how it is unfortunately. I haven't touched the AI behaviour apart that NPCs hide from fallout and psi storms. I don't plan any updates in that matter.
This is not Absolute Nature update nor 2.1 version.
It is plain v2.0 that is available for download for a year here: Moddb.com
Videos here are in R1: Youtube.com
Most likely you have low RAM issues. Try to select low quality sky-boxes during install.
Yup, there is AtmosFear 1.3 for CS: Stalker.filefront.com + Absolute Textures: Moddb.com and Moddb.com
Precisely. And even more as C. uses AF2.1
That one from your screenshot is taken in spring when new branches grow at the top. I took the reference from those: Upload.wikimedia.org Shanasparkles.files.wordpress.com
Yup, new models
FAQ (again): Moddb.com
How radioactive fallout in the radioactive Zone is not immersive? Well, it's your opinion. Turn them off if you don't like them.
I definitely want to add more trees. I also work on more dense and variable grass. I need to get the balance between the amount of plants and performance though. The models are already 4x more complicated than vanilla. I haven't seen any performance hit so far but on my rig it may be hard to notice :)
Not possible. NPC can't change the faction. The only way is to create zombie equivalent to all stalker models and replace normal one with them on zombification. IMO it's not worth the effort.
There are many reasons for that. Mostly related to your system and high mod requirements. Check the log
There is definitely something wrong. Sure, loading time will increase (especially on hi-res option) as there is 100+ textures more to load but it shouldn't take so long. Try to reinstall the game and mod. Make sure that the game didn't actually crash when loading (check the log). On my system CoP doesn't really CTD but just freezes. You can also try to install normal resolution textures to see if it helps.
AF3 comes with in-game configuration tool. Just set the weather to bad and you barely see the sun :)
Check What's New: In game configuration options here: Moddb.com
I've checked. For me the first link from google.com is about demo_record (second is your post :)). Maybe you see something different, probably because that stupid google regional search.
What modellers? Do we have modellers? Is there something I don't know?
Yes, Bar and Rostok (wild territory) are now combined into one big map. Actually even bigger that those 2 together :)
There won't be separate files in gamedata folder. LA will be delivered as any Stalker game with gamedata packed in xray database packs and automatic installer.
The whole package (installer, bins and gamedata.db) will be compressed with 7zip to lower the download size.
Replacing AF2.1 with AF3 is quite difficult. First you need to remove ANY trace of AF2.1 and then AF3 needs to be merged.
I don't plan any other weather effect. In fact I tried to make hurricane/tornado but the engine is quite limited and I haven't been satisfied with the result so I dropped that.
Everything will be packed in db files but it could be extracted to gamedata dir and modded like any other stalker game/mod
Yes, in AF3
