For me you can't beat STALKER. I have tried pretty much every game out there but have found none that put me where this game does. I start playing and get lost in a world that can be both beautiful and terrifying. I remember my first visit to the Yantar lab in SHOC. It was in the early hours of the morning, I was using headphones while sneaking around the lab. The atmosphere had me on the edge of my seat. Ten seconds later something totally unexpected happened and put my heart in my mouth. I paused the game, shaking like a little child and from that moment on for me it has been the stick by which all games are measured. And sadly they just don't measure up. STALKER is a thousand games in one. Set in a constantly changing, evolving world. The only time any two playthroughs are the same is when you hit that ENTER THE ZONE button at the start of the game.

Make a copy of the configs/ui/scopes_16.xml and rename the copy to scopes.xml and replace the one in the mod with it. This stops a crash found and fixed by Seeker_of_Strelok (SoS).

Old Storyline Restoration Mod http---narod.ru-disk-24504819001-rma_patch_mod_115vr.7z.htmlTranslation https---dl.dropbox.com-u-8664592-rma_115vr_english_translation.7zThis is a mod for SHOC 10006. It adds numerous new tasks to the original storyline as the name suggests. I have not tried the mod but I'm told it has been given a decent translation by several residents at the GSC forum and is a pretty good mod. This is a recently updated version with another set of added tasks. There is a thread for it at GSC with more info.
This is a rebuild mod for the Clear sky game. The translation is currently being updated by Leet Hax0r and JimByr Links for the latest required parts and translation are here:
Zmeelov mod image - david.m.e - Mod DB
A Russian mod for COP that adds approx 10 new areas, lots of quests and numerous new items, weapons, outfits etc. This version includes an English machine translation and a patch that was done because weapon recoil made the original virtually unplayable for a lot of people.
A new translation will be available soon.
The All-in-one of Dead city was removed so you will need to download the seperate parts (5 in all) and put it together yourself. The parts are in this thread at GSC.
