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.
Because Stalker is FPS - FIRST person shooter.

Because R1 is soooo 2004? Play builds and you'll have your atmosphere.
Check the title of the video you've linked and answer yourself.
In Atmosfear3? No.
AtmosFear only changes the weather and adds some effects. SRP could be merged with AF3 manually.
Nah, we need to leave something for other modders. They would be angry if they couldn't fix LA :)
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.
No, probably it won't. There will be AF3 ported to CS and SoC and that's it. Next one will be for Stalker 2 :)
Well, with the amount of hours spent on the mod (1,452,666 so far) times the chinese slave worker hour rate ($0.01) divided by amount of ppl that would buy this (10) it's gonna be about... I don't know. I'm not that good at maths :)
Don't want to shatter your dreams but Dez just meant full quality.
Check dynamic_weather_graphs.ltx. It holds the weather probabilities.
Well, technically the shadows are visible in R1 as well, only static. Anyway, The vid was made with R2.
No offence, but those 'old stalker atmosphere' fans seem to me like some old communist narrowminded hardliners. Play the old builds then and stop whining. Beside that LA in R1 has only default weather compiled from builds. How closer to 'old stalker atmosphere' can we get?
Thanks for your analysis. All the comments will be taken into consideration.
And 0:51-1:01 underground is not Yantar :)

Rank: 1 of 15,873. Wow!
Did you start the new game? The old saves don't work.
Reinstall the game, patch to 1.6.02, reinstall the mod and start the new game.
You of course can run with 20kg backpack forever and you eat only once a week :)
This mod is about realism. That's why it was set like that.
The options and messages should be the same language as your localisation. Anyway, try to copy contents of gamedata\configs\text\eng to gamedata\configs\text\rus (or whatever language they are now).
Because it was in Soviet Union when the disaster happened. Do you think someone bothered to change the signs in exclusion Zone when Ukraine regained the independence? For whom? Mutants?
Your welcome. Glad, I could help.
BTW: MISERY is now 4th in ranks. :)
Doesn't matter. One or another, or both.
