Welcome to my profile. I am a hobbyist modder who mods other people's mods. I love to take a mod that is enjoyable, and then tweak it more to suit my tastes. This is a reflection of my appreciation of the greater modding community's effort, especially with games like STALKER. There is no greater flattery than imitation. Hopefully you will find something you like in a mod I've tweaked, and then my joy will become yours. Oddworld.odd is my home network, where these projects are built.

To allay any suspicions, we aren't "dead". This mod has, thanks to a number of personal catastrophes, been stretched over a few years.

That in turn has caused "more than a few" of our original development team members to pursue other projects as we lost contact.

Anyone interested in contributing to the project is encouraged to private message me.

I have been play-testing this week and the previous week and things are looking well.

Of the things that remain, few may be truly "fixable" (i.e., large loading "spikes" when transitioning into densely populated areas, assumed to be caused by the introduction of a large amount of new content on top of the existing vanilla content).

Ultimately, I feel we are drawing closer to a release as we weed out and correct some of the last annoyances.

It continues to be my fondest wish that your wait was not in vain and that your expectations will be met wherever possible.

Until next time, happy stalking, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s.

Good news, folks. I shot some video after some initial difficulty on Tuesday, 2014/05/20.

The video turned out pretty good, all things considered. It will be in the Garbage, but will showcase some "general" activity that we're all used to. Searching corpses, shooting down mutants (which can be very, very profitable if you sell the mutant parts to the right vendors), and harassing the bandits as much as they harass us.

It's a little bit of "classic" STALKER done in a way that says, "Guess Who's Modding Again".

Look for this new video to be posted sometime in the next week or two, depending on editing time. I need to set up my editor again, but I don't foresee any great difficulty.

Until then, happy stalking!

Thanks for writing, zin90.

Development had stalled for a bit again, following some ugly personal turmoil that I will spare the rest of you.

The good news is, that's done with, and I am back to my old, happy, modding self.

As for a release date, I don't think I'm ready to commit to a date just yet. I know a lot of modders do this, and still more say, "It's done when it's done". I too, understand why they would do this.

However - and for reasons outlined in the latest news article - I think I may try to frame a timeframe for this project so that I can, at the very least, be a little more transparent with all of you as to how this project is progressing.

I need to take a long, hard look at what we already have, and that will give me a better idea of where we "should" be. I think that once we have that "destination", then we can give you guys some updates timeframes, or at least ball-park estimates.

To friends and patrons around the world,

It saddens me greatly to announce that extenuating circumstances in my life will prevent me from working on this mod, at least for the next several months.

There are very serious situations that I am forced to deal with at the present time, and I will not have the necessary time to continue development of the mod.

I would like to emphasize, however, that this mod is *NOT* being discontinued. While these dire situations are being worked through, I will be halting all development until they can be resolved. Once these situations have been worked through, it is my intention to resume development thereafter.

Unfortunately, given the nature of these issues, it is not possible to give an accurate date as to when progress will resume. If fortune smiles on me, it may be as soon as the beginning of 2013.

I realize this must come as a shock to many of you, and I apologize to each of you for the delayed progress on this mod. I still have every intention of delivering this to the community in due time.

I appreciate your patience, understanding, and cooperation while I work through this extremely difficult time in my life.

Sincerely,

DrBlizzard

It is entirely possible, however, the overall goal of M.I.N.E. departs significantly with most other mods in that we discard absolute realism in favor of more accessible gameplay; for example, increasing the weight limit to an unrealistic 80kg so you can carry more weapons since we've added well over 60 new weapons to the vanilla Clear Sky experience.

I have never, and likely will never, incorporate functions that provide more realism (and a corresponding jump in difficulty), in favor of additions that enhance the core mechanics of the mod; graphics, gunplay, and enhancement of the player in the world (new music, sound effects, etc.)

To everyone who is continuing their support for this mod, I would like to give you our warmest "Thanks".

Currently, we are still working on solidifying the current build, removing bugs, and testing the mod to ensure there are no breaking points or easily identifiable "Crash To Desktop" (CTD) errors.

Presently, we have a smooth build and I am in the Dark Valley working with Freedom. There are NO issues so far!

I expect to be pushing forward into Agroprom and then Lake Yantar, where I will try to produce a video showing the current build and the features that are all working together.

A complete play-test in this build means we have accomplished a complete merger of all major components, and represents a significant milestone in our development process.

Look for an updated news article covering this progress, and additional video to keep everyone up-to-date in the future.

To everyone exercising patience, I want to say "Thank You" personally, as it means a lot to us to be given the time and focus that we need to make a quality mod that is both fun and as error-free as it can be.

Until next time, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s!

I am seriously debating keeping both in-game. I think the newer-looking one here has a hard-coded single-shot reload animation which we can't change; we don't have any animators who can redo it. That means this single-shot variant (shown) will likely end up with a lower price tag, slower firing rates, and characteristics more like an un-scoped sniper rifle.

The second model Fluffy refers to is a stripper-clip fed model, and I BELIEVE I had it working at one point here. I will have to toy around with it, but I just loved the wood furniture on the first model - and that is why you see it already implemented. The second model will likely be slightly more expensive, but may have a higher rate of fire to offset it's quicker reload and higher price tag.

Good observations, and ones I share as well. We're still tweaking damages, but overall, the direction things are moving is extremely promising.

The opening scenes with the pistols were some of my favorites, with the revival of the idea that a pistol can actually be useful.

Right now, the pistols all have high 0.7+ damage rates, which accounts for their almost universal lethality. Assault rifles are in the 0.4-0.6 range, with some hitting in 0.7 (such as the AS Val, Groza, etc.) which may explain the observed behavior. Also contributing to this is the phenomenon where Clear Sky has a guaranteed miss ratio; such as 8:10, whereas 2 of every 10 shots are guaranteed to miss due to the reality that "not every shot will land".

I am wrestling with eliminating that altogether, or potentially bumping some weapons' damage potentials up.

I suppose we'll see!

While I believe the high-contrast upgrade would require a different gun (scope textures in CS are tied to the weapon, where-as in CoP you can define multiple scopes for a weapon), the higher recoil on the 47 is definitely something I want to look into.

Admittedly, in my pre-Mikhail Kalashnikov biography video watching -days, I tried to justify it with the idea that the 47 weighs more. My post biography watching days, and reading several books on the subject, have educated me enough to know better now. :)

7.62 will be a great round in this mod; but as you can expect, it will weigh more and it will cause higher kickback than the 5.45.

You can't delete the texture alone, I'm afraid. I duplicated an existing GSC mesh and then associated the duplicated mesh with a new texture, so if you remove the texture, you'll get non-textured (purple) hands - or worse.

You'd need to delete the mesh, the texture, and then copy an existing mesh and rename it to the deleted one's name so that it doesn't flip out when you load the game.

Otherwise, this has generally been a popular texture and I think it'll grow on you. Give Monolith a chance, won't you? :)

It really goes far to show what is possible when you pool the collective talents of a very talented group of modders.

Those were dart rounds, which have explosive qualities. I thought I'd show how the Saiga can be accurate with the right ammo.

I finally got the iron sights adjusted last night for this, and fixed some of the weapon stats, too. I am shooting (pun intended) for realistic weight, distance, and other properties; all pulled from real-world sources. Should be a fun weapon to use in the end; especially since I give you the 20-round clips instead of the 10-round restricted clips.

I'm also thinking of making the 5.7x28mm round in general be armor-piercing by default. A round of such rarity in the Zone will command a price tag that matches.

If you haven't already played PreSky v0.3, you need to. I never felt so at home in a world where I was in total control of what I did next. Would I go mug a few Stalkers for loot? Would I go hunt artifacts? Would I defend the Stalkers from bandit raids or mutant attacks? Total freedom of choice is a very strong selling point of this mod.

Keep up the good work, Fluffy22!

I plan on doing a video later which will have the Elite night vision from Clear Sky: Complete (the black & white one) which will really allow me to show you some at-length full-bright stealth done in otherwise pitch-black areas.

I thought this one with nothing but ambient light would show that ANYONE can try to be stealthy, even without night vision.

This TOTALLY exceeds the maximum amount of allowed "eerie" in a screenshot. Well done!

It could just be me, but this sounds like prime menu music to me. Definitely a very well done piece, and it captures the hint of things to come from what I have seen of this mod so far.

Sclera's music did the same thing to me - which is why I requested he allow us to include it in M.I.N.E. If you like his work, make sure you let him know. I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

This very well done - I really like the creeping feeling you get from it, as if some unstoppable force is about to descend on you, and all you can do is watch.

Maybe as a favor to everyone who ever played Shadow of Chernobyl and had their ears bled by Snitch's incessant yapping, we will be vindicated by allowing us to pull the trigger on him. :)
