Hello fellow S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s,

I've been busy for a while now, mostly with my study (game programming) and thinking about my future. I've finally got an internship at a company specialized in both offline and online rendering, CGI and other stuff. I hope that I can put the knowledge I obtain there to use in the merge mod I am currently making.

So far progress as been slow but steady. I've been modifying the STCoP 2.9 weapon pack since it was released, trying to strip it down to only contain the vanilla weapon variants and ammo. Think of it as OWR 3 but then with more scopes and the requirement for a special silencers. With slimming down, I don't just mean remove them from the code, but also removing unused textures, sounds and models. Dependencies are a pain in the ass.

It's not the only thing I am working on. I've still been working on editing Alundaio's awesome APP (Ai Plugin Pack) used with MSO 1.1 to contain small new features / changes from AI Tweaks 2.1 and removing the MSO specific stuff (basically what MSO made a pain to merge with any other mod). The random loadout tool is really a lifesaver, and try to edit it a bit more to make it easier to change specific stuff.

I show interest in porting work from the CoC addons to my own merge mod, such as texture packs and game tweaks (I really hope to get the SWTC for CoC's AF3 and campfire feature to work with CoP). I really hope that the HD Models mod will also contain CoP story specific models.

Heh, I think I've spend more time modding the game than actually playing it xD. A friend of mine (Kladdos) helps me out with playtesting the game (he could finish all main + side quests within 5 hours o.o), When he tests a particular mod or merge, I work on another part on it so that no time is wasted.

At last, I've been writing short stories about my earlier S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat / Chernobyl playthroughs. So far I've only released one online. Give it a try:

Oh, before I forget: I got myself and a friend a physical copy of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat. We are both really happy with it!. I didn't expect the local game store to still have retail copies of the game :P. She sold me the last ones they had.

That's it for today. Feel free to respond or share your opinion!.
