I do coding/scripting/configs/ect. Right now I'm working on the 'STALKER: Call of Pripyat' mods RCOM and Faction Fronts.

This mod is about the most opposite from dead that it could possibly be. We've been busy working hard are some things that I feel are very much worth waiting a little bit longer before showing them off. :)

It is difficult to do, because the models don't allow for it. For example, the lr300 has no hole on the rear sight, so it has to be treated like an open sight. It would require new models, unfortunately, I don't model. :(

MacBradley @ RCOM v.1.0.6 Beta Patch 1

Thanks for the feedback!

1) Yes, the shotguns are pretty bad without sights. In fact, all the guns are. I'll test them out and see if they seem too loose without using the sights, like you said.

2) RCOM Final will have HUD options that are selectable with an installer. What other original features were you referring too?

3) The lr300 should fire at about 900 rpm. All rpm values are set according to their real life counterparts, via the internet. AK74 should be right as well, maybe you're thinking of the AK47 that has a slower rpm? Regardless, I'll look through the files and make sure I didn't make any errors when writing the rpm values.

I'm not familiar with how the Russian voice acting mod you're using works. I do know that in RCOM both the eng and rus text files have english in them, however. For text to appear in Russian with RCOM, you'll need to delete the "rus" folder and also have the language set to Russian (in system.ltx, if I recall correctly? idk.).

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you're enjoying RCOM so far.

The AI being too unaware is by far the largest bug remaining that I'm aware of, and it is being worked on.

I'll have either an ATMOSFEAR patch for the next version, or an optional version with it merged in already (Cromm Cruac already said it was OK).

The crosshairs were left on with iron sights by accident. It was for testing sight alignment, but I forgot to turn it off since I play with cross-hairs off altogether.

Thank you, I do put a lot of work into RCOM. There are other modders work (details in readme) in RCOM as well though, who also are extremely dedicated. :)

And no, I don't work in the game industry. Would be a better job than my current though! Haha, maybe after I finally finish my degree one of these years. :P

Because I changed it, haha. It is left over from me testing some things with the Deagle.

It great you cleared up what the mod is about; it'll definitely decrease confusion and get more people to check out PP.

Sorry, but I can't help you with crashes relating to your merge attempt. I haven't even downloaded "I work alone" mod, and can't be spending my time making patches to merge with other mods that already have many different mods that I don't know all the ins and outs of.

The Desert Eagle can use .45 rounds or .50 rounds, but to use .50 rounds it needs brought to a tech. The one at the beginning of the game can't use the ammo in your inventory, because those are just left over from me testing the different ammo types to make sure they both worked when they should and shouldn't.

Good question, because its not the most simple thing to understand what the releases of RCOM contain unless you've been tracking the mod or read through all the comments/pics.

Clear Sky maps/mart terrains/ect are in the working copy of RCOM that isn't released. RCOM Beta v.1.0.6 does not contain the new maps.

New maps are completely repopulated and involve different quests; mostly like the ShoC and CS repeatable and somewhat random freeplay quests.

MacBradley @ Call of Pripyat Complete

While editing some values is easy, balancing the game for realistic weapons is a whole different animal!

The AI in vanilla CoP doesn't even engage targets outside of a 30 meter range, so with realistic weapons you'll just be target practice shooting helpless NPC's from afar. That's just one of VERY VERY MANY game breaking issues that need modified for any resemblance of balance with more realistic weapons in STALKER.

Awesome! Looks good so far. From the angle it looks like his head might be scaled slightly too large. clothes look great, but I must say I really like the full coat design like in your artwork in the previous image. I'm glad you wrote no trenchcoat "yet." :)

MacBradley @ Work in Progress v2 - Overlays

Yes, me. :)

Currently I'm having issues with pretty bad FPS loss though; hopefully I'll get to the bottom of the problem so I can give Predator_828 a copy of the script for FF.

Regardless, I believe mods are only supposed to be filed under game's that they actually run on. You might be surprised how many people would get the wrong idea and think this isn't for CoP if they saw it on the CS game page.

Nice model! Are you doing the textures Predator_828?

No, there's mutant parts again. Only thing, is that they aren't found in monster's inventory anymore; GSC removed that functionality from the game engine. Now they drop from mutants on death. I think I'll try and incorporated a timer though, so it doesn't look like they poop out a mutant part RIGHT when they die, but instead it spawns after they fall and you have to move the mutant's dead body to get their "loot."

Great! You'd think a map would have been an obvious inclusion for the "Stalker Nexus" of CoP. Wanted sign a good addition as well, it adds character/atmosphere.

MacBradley @ RCOM

Glad you're enjoying the combat and AI, as I've spent a lot of time working on both of those. :)

Yes, I am currently working on quests for the new maps. A small handful will be specific, one time quests, that effect the storyline. The majority however, will be repeatable with randomized elements; hunting legendary mutants, gathering loot, assassinating stalkers, retrieving stolen goods for NPC's, finding artifacts for NPC's, ect. I figured vanilla CoP has plenty of scripted elements, so I'd return freeplay style quests like ShoC and CS had.

Artifacts will still be invisible and require detectors, but I've got some tricks up my sleeve (for artifacts) I'm not ready to disclose yet. :) There IS now about 3x the artifacts and their stats/locations are now different.

Ammo prices was a band-aid economy fix. I've been reworking the whole economy for every separate map/faction/trader as I fill the maps out. :)

I agree that many won't notice the differences, but the subtle changes already make it look more "organic" and like something stalkers would build, as opposed to a level designer.

Great looking vegetation! These textures makes the grass blend into the terrain at the no grass draw distance SOOOO much better than vanilla. Nice work; I can't wait to check this out in game.

I'm not sure, but it would be nice. Dialogs maybe? Those are easy to add once they're written.

MacBradley @ Snatcher Mod - Sky Traffic Test #3

This is a good example of how much more fun could have been had with the Crisis engine than a simple old shoot Commies and Aliens story allowed for.
