TO GAME COMPANIES: First of all - thank you for your work and contribution to the world of gaming. As mentioned before: You are the Easter Bunny. We (the modders) are simply painting the eggs. But we are actively engaged in projects of serious game improvements. Mind that we are doing this in our spare time for zero ecomic benefit. I strongly encourage you to consider staff candidates from the Stalker modding scene. This is likely to be one of the best places for you to find motivation and dedication for a professional development environment. Several active modders are well capable of taking part in an actual and professional game development process. And if you choose not to I wish you the best in development and hope that at least some inspiration was found here. Thank you N.Aaroe The modding community

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion based on the information we have.
Nothing new in that. Some people know me well, others don't know me at all.
For those of you questioning my character or the lead mindset of MDT, I'd like to provide a piece of information that might aid in any lack of faith in our profile and/or activities.

I've served as a recon, and a medic in Kosova under NATO.
I've been serving Greenpeace as an activist in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Germany. I've been modding S.T.A.L.K.E.R. since 2009 to keep Chernobyl awareness levels high (and to have a bit of fun with an unpolished jewel of a game series).
I've been donating on an ongoing basis to a variation of charities including Greenpeace, SaveTheOrangutang, AidConvoy, WSPA, Chernobyl Children's Project International, Chernobyl Children's Project (UK based), just to name some.
Personally I am not a fan of self promoting, but now I sense a clear reason to do so here, just this one time. I know for fact that some core members of MDT have some remarkably inspirational backgrounds, and I witness their devotion to MISERY first hand.

Kickstarter does not allow a project to be a fundraiser for charity, but they don't control how potential profit is spent afterwards. Supporters of mentioned project have 0% expectations of any future donations - they are focused on the product itself, as per officially stated rules by Kickstarter. Even briefly stating that a KS project is constituted on good intentions of charity can jeopardize the whole thing.

I wonder why some people got themselves convinced how MDT is going to utilize any potential earnings from the project, since this is stated as often as any charitable plans (in both cases it is 'nowhere').

I don't blame anyone for ever doubting the mentality of MDT in a lack of background information and I admit that I personally could have handled things better. Starting fires in a much beloved community was never my intentions. And yes, I did consider actual fundraiser websites designed for charity and went on another route. I have learned from this rather unexpected scenario.

Use this piece of information as you will and have a bit of faith in humanity still.
Please don't act in ignorance and please forgive me if I ever upset you.

I would place my bet on the team that is not developing the project in their spare time.

Stated tweaks and edits are subject to change, but they are all tested and fully implemented at this point.

What a delight to read this. It sums up so much about the whole modder/community relation.
It can be quite demoralizing to spend all of this time on a mod and share it with the public, only to see it bashed by many who does not like the changes made. If more people had your mentality fewer modders would leave the modding scene

Yes, that is the plan. However, as indicated by stretch goals this decision will be influenced by the funding result (to some extent). Cheers!

Hi!

1 - a key member is moving at the moment and we have to wait a bit before publishing. Patch will include economy tweaks, weapon anim tweaks, new weapons, translation updates and more.

2 - good idea! Actually IIRC Loner1 once announced an idea about doing a tutorial playthrough, somewhat related. I myself have also thought about this idea with a commentary track. But since I am no native US speaker I would probably just sound retarded and/or unfocused
