With this type of duplicity, they only have themselves to blame. They still try to play the victim card to anyone who will listen, but I imagine that audience is shrinking on a daily basis.

I think a lot was learnt with this.Any project needs to be honest, transparent and "realistic" (no pun intended). Areal failed at this and subsequently so did their project.

Well, it's still live on Kick Starter. To be honest at this moment in time I wouldn't consider it worth pledging money to. That is a shame because everyone would like a game as it is described, but I don't think this is going to live it to it's own hype.

I don't think it's an out and out scam, by they (West Games), have been proved to have been dishonest withe "sales pitch".

I will stay with the project until the end, and if it is still looking dodgy, I will pull my pledge.

On a positive side, the comments page has been strangly addictive and I have met a some Stalker players, naturally I have sold them to the idea of joining us here on moddb and at the Bar of course.

I agree that this game as it currently stands is highly unlikely to see the light of day.
I have however, like yourself, made a minimal pledge and posted the same questions on the KS comments page. At the time of posting this there has been no updates from the dev team or even a promise of one.
I have however spent a fairly enjoyable day learning from some of the contributors how the whole Kickstart system works and the success's and failures it has produced. The page is now a little less inflammatory then it has been and is all the better for that.

The only updates West Games can seem to supply at the moment are one concept art picture at a time and video from a member of their dev team asking for support to the KS campaign.
They haven't answered any questions about the engine they are using or planning to use, there is no video footage of any of the game, they haven't answered the questions about people associated with them and links to previous possible misuse of KS campaigns. As you know nasha, from the comments section of their KS page, they consider a message of support from Official Stalker Facebook as an important update.
I did back the MDT Seed project on KS because they (MDT), had a proven track record of supplying what they promise, gave real and relevant updates and would answer questions in timely manner. West Games have failed to meet these simple requirements when asking for money from people. I don't think it's a scam, just a complete PR train wreck.

It's just a nice small mod that has a certain warmth. I haven't spent anytime playing through, but that is my first impression, if anyone wants this I can make it available for downloading here and at the 100 Rads.

Thanks, the tree in the road is from added level details, onto which is added some of Ket's & LoNer1's work, most of the time the added details complement each level but there will be bound to be some small things that could look a bit odd.

Sadly I have to agree with you, sadly because it would be great to actually hope that this game could be realised (no pun intended). I have spent some time watching the "fun" on Areals kickstart page, comments section and see you joined in, as expected you ask the right question and show other users, the link you show here, to warn them.
Vostok/GSC or whoever could actually produce a new legitimate Stalker game would not only be following this fiasco (no doubt with their legal heads on), but also seeing the huge interest that Stalker still has (and the money making potential) and just start working on Stalker 2 sooner rather than later. That should put an end to potential scammers and/or badly thought out crowdfunding campaigns all using Stalker as the bait and downgrading it's status.
Sorry, a bit of a rambling post, well done for keeping the community alert to this situation.

Introducing another case of "expect the unexpected", wow Ket, this looks really good.
I'm sure you said, a little while ago, that you could take X-Ray no further, and yet here you are pulling more rabbits out of the hat.
I apologise for a cliche ridden post.
