You can't beat STALKER. I've tried pretty much every game out there but, I've 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.

It does transform the look a lot, This is using the r4 file you posted over at GSC along with Abs Nat 2. I just deleted my post there like I said but I was hoping someone would reply and post the other 3 r files. But no joy, Have you got them to send me by any chance?

It is starting to look that way, Overgrown like this makes a hell of an improvement, It's a shame it's so demanding, My old system couldn't handle it on built up maps without the fps going too low (below 30). That was a Phenom II x4 at 3ghz(8mb cache) with 4gb (1066) ram and a Sapphire 7850 (2gb +factory overclock). My new one runs it a lot better, a 3570k @ 4.4 with 8gb (1600) but I still need to up the card really.

Jk at Swartz mod provided some which run a lot better than these which are at 801m, His are at 301m.

I was playing with an extended grass draw line today, My pc struggled in places but the zone looks a lot better now. I found myself having to stop to get my bearings in usually familiar places. If your pc can handle the strain try it if you haven't already.
