Because some clown has stolen the ammo and put vodka there :)
But seriously, to make the ammo scarce at the beginning so it's little harder to get it. Not just having 1000s of bullets at the start. Later on the next levels the boxes will have the usual content.
About 1 day after it's finished
The Gods are pleased (nom nom nom) :)
But seriously, it may be the weather. There are some conditions that the blowout could happen. One of them is a proper weather. And because it's random it might never met this requirement in your case.
Glad to hear. It's very rare problem but it happens from time to time to some players. Dunno what causing that as it is hard to replicate.
Nope, we haven't
Broken save, load the previous one or the one from the previous level.
Maybe because people don't have the Patience to answer the same questions for a 1000th time.
FYI: 16bbp means 16 bits per pixel (16bit color palette).
Seems like your laptop uses 16bit color palette. The colors in that mode are interpolated to the closest one in the pallette causing discoloration. It's mostly visible in dark areas.
The day after it's done ;)
Well, it's not one of those hard-I-am-a-masohist-core mods. It's more challenging but not insane difficult. The difficulty mostly comes from a lack of resources like food, guns or ammo. The fight is also more challenging, but in a good way. Sometimes it requires scouting or stealth. You can't just run'n'gun.
Why not to test yourself? If you can't beat your opponents, you can always lower the difficulty level in the options.
TBH, I've never managed to make AA work properly in any Stalker. You'll have to live with that ;)
You know what definitely would help? Reading the instalator messages: Up.oblivionlost.pl
You had to tick the radio button to agree that you will read them but you haven't anyway.
Emission covers in CS and in SoC are completely different things.
Check the PDA map. Possible covers are marked there.
PM me the log (from FATAL ERROR line). I can't help without it.
Rare case of the broken save. Unfortunately it happens with xRay from time to time. Load the save from before entering the lab.
No, not any but some may work. There is a weapon pack (mentioned somewhere in the comments couple of pages back) available but I'm not sure about stability and gameplay balance.
That was the idea ;)
I'd suggest to use Absolute Nature 3 levels as a base or at least the tree models I've prepared. I'm far from bragging (merely expressing gamers opinion) but they look much nicer than the old vanilla models. You can download the whole levels and objects for SDK from my AtmosFear page: Moddb.com
I can also provide the tree pack used in LA. They're optimized better (less polygons/vertices). Gimme a shout on PM if you are interested.
Erm... that's not AtmosFear bug. That's how xRay engine works.
If you saved your game on the clear=>foggy transition (even one minute after it started - still clear sky) it will always load the weather at the end of the transition (foggy). The engine can't start displaying the weather in the middle of transition.
AtmosFear for ShoC is a part of Autumn Aurora 2.1. There won't be a standalone version probably. As for AF3CS that won't happen in any foreseeable future. No HR resourses available :)
Ah, you meant Absolute Nature 3 Addon. I thought you mean AtmosFear 3 itself. Well, yes, it may happen that some item will fall somewhere or be clipped due to different tree models. Still, you are the first actually bothered by that :)
You can try to rename gamedata\levels\level_youre_on folder. That should load the vanilla geometry. Rename it back when you get the stuff.
IIRC Redux has one of the AFs included, not sure which one though. Ask Redux creator.
Nobody has reported that since the release 3.5 years ago. You probably haven't taken all the items.
Nope, only merc commander in cordon has this rifle. No one else.
Mercs attacking the cordon village may have them.
