People do realize how easy the S.H.I.E.L.D. version was able to be taken down right? Good Support/Transport Unit, Weak Armor for realism please.
Or it's been resized temporarily to show off the amazing amount of detail put into the unit.
Thank you for the additional strategies, would be nice if each Signal Fire had it's own theme such as Ent Gathering, Dragons Lair, Balrog's Sacred Flame, that dirt diving fire-breathing wurm thingy, Goblin King/Army mini kingdom or Orc Infestation, Mountain/Troll Dwelling, Eagles Nest WITH AREA MIST to Stealth them! Same with Elf Forest that cloaks their "homeland"! Or the Wizard's Tower where their Magic Damage/Cool Down is amplified.
Would also be cool to have these Signal Fire defenders respawn after a certain amount of time as a way of retaking the Signal Tower. This would also allow "lesser" themed creatures to make surprise attacks on the occupying player in a more frequent occurrence then the legendary ones. Creatures such as: Goblin attack, Barrow wright haunting, Spider infestation, Wildmen Raid, etc.
True, it is an old game afterall. I appreciate those who keep old games alive, amazing how some modders are able to modify/overhaul/add in new content to expand and keep the games fresh.
If the gunner gets shot, does that disable the turret until reinforced? Or after a certain amount of time? Another very well made model :)
Radioactive burer discharging a solar flare! Warning! Hazardous Radiation Exposure... Warning! You're on Fire!... Warning! Your flesh has been seared... Now You're a Zombie!... XD
Yes, the zone welcomes you back Mac ;)
Interesting effect, does this mean the pond in Dark Valley will expand or the ditches and basements in various levels will flood? Will our footsteps in this puddles be heard? Will there be a slow effect or possible slip effect depending on depth of puddle? Hmm streams, rivers, flash floods O my. This would definitely be a welcomed technology to the STALKER realm.
Are those rooms searchable? Can't believe how much this mod has changed the original STALKER game. Can't wait to have this zone experience take me! :)
Thank you, Looking forward to your future updates!
Thank you, Fun Mod!
The program "Vuze" can create a torrent for you. It's pretty straight forward. Hope OL 2012 will make a comeback! Thanks for all your hard work!
Nice explanation azuza, thank you for helping me see the "Light"! XD
R.I.P PreSky... Hello Zone! I'm answering the call! XD
But seriously, happy to see what this mod will bring to the Clear Sky game! Best of luck & happy modding! :D
Clear Sky Elite! XD
Thank you for your response & your unique contribution to the Zombie Genre. :)
I was wondering if you'd be able to use Left 4 Dead Models in your mod. Your mod is exactly what I wished the Left 4 Dead games had as another mode of gameplay. Looking forward to your next podcast. :)
Was gonna comment about that too, but his comment says it all.
I'd like to beta-test this mod, nothing is OP when you have skill and knowledge of how to defeat it. GDI's Ion Cannon & Sonic Weapons are GDI's unique advantage/strategy, whether it's OP or not depends on the player & that's where beta-testing comes into play. This concept is interesting and shows a lot of thought was put into it. Well Done :)
Ah, yes now I remember, but I thought it was for one of the Zero Hour mods. XD
If I actually had time, I'd change the maps for you. :D
The last part I guess I just wanted to see a flashier new model rather then a rectangle flying through the air. XD Maybe with some vapor trail or motion blur effects under the model, it would portray the sense of thrust that the unit is creating to propel it through the air.
Always a pleasure to read your replies! :D
I really want to see these zombie variants! :D
For some reason your Cybran units make me think of these as possible inspiration for future units for the Cybran Nation:
Agreed, more variations from new (above pic) to old (un-painted, brown wooden, missing planks, rusted/holed roof) would be nice to have. :D
I believe it's mold or moss, they grow on buildings over time.
XD Ty, Maybe it could be done later on for the mod, or you could outsource the texture to other texture artists to get the variations done quickly. You're already amazingly quick with updating your mod, can't wait to see the updated texture. :)
Also make the six red lights in the front have a brighter touch of red so they look like lights with the darker red looking like a reflection against the black metal. Great first texture for what looks like a unit that has flown quite a few missions. Is it possible to have the texture change once the unit achieves veteran status, from a newer off the production line texture?
Would still like to see another weapon load out other then lasers. But I guess NOD is laser orientated. Either way can't wait to try out the next version.
...Big Black Dong... XD ;P
If it really is done, you should make the code available to other modding teams who keep the STALKER community alive. Cedit should be given ofcourse, sorry to see the team move on from a successful mod. I especially liked the arena coding.
No problem, I like to help out or give constructive criticism to modders whose mods interest me. :)
Yay, now I know where those background female screeches come from at night... they give me the shivers... Hopefully female mutants will also appear in the zone, those mutants gotta come from somewhere.
First female mutant zone, the "banshee"
runs at you doing something like this:
wandering banshee doing this:
...next up succubus XD
LoL, I meant the Space Force hitting it's enemies hard and fast, it's amazing that Scrin would be able to make onto the planet, but the previous comment was me playing along with your funny entertaining Description that you posted with this pic. Can't wait to try out the chaos that this mod will bring. :)
O_O ...thanks... you just gave me nightmares... -_-
hmm... I see stealth generator possibilities on this unit ;)
Wow, TRON just got jealous! XD
Nice, then that could also mean different skin textures for each species giving herds, or groups of mutants unique and varying looks instead of carbon copy replicas. ei. brown boar, black boar, brown & black boar, boar with gash marks, etc. etc.
Glad your decided to do this. I know it might be time consuming to have each mutant spawn with its own size and texture along with spawning each as an individual mutant instead of insert # of same unit at location. The variety and feel will be well worth it in the end. :)
I see, maybe another modder in the stalker community could help with that, the idea could be implemented at your discretion at a later time should you wish to come back to it.
Another idea I haven't seen is mutant adolescence, I could see the pseudo giants offspring being the vanilla size and lurking in places the giant could not go. I'm not sure if the hardcode allows for size variable spawning, but just another idea to come back to if you want to try it out. Again, good job on the giant.
I agree with Chezzlor, the initial attack either charging or stomping
could knockback/stun the player/npc for a certain amount of time for the giant to stomp the life out of the poor player/npc stupid/crazy enough to not run away. The giant now has a fitting role in the zone.
The Elven Alliance Mod = TEAM? :D

Yup yup, I did that, sorry about the miscommunication, the "gamedata Autumn Aurora Arsenal + Patch overwrite\" = just the "add-on" not the "patch 1.0"
In other words that means I copied the main Autumn Aurora gamedata to the DIR, then overwrote it with the Autumn Aurora Arsenal Add-on gamedata like the readme said. Those were the only two things I did on a fresh install, and the inventory was still not fixed. I'll play around with it some more and see what I can do, Looking forward to you're version 1.1 Autumn Aurora mod! ;)
Hmm... I must not be doing something right, fresh install, patched to 1.0005ww, gamedata Autumn Aurora, gamedata Autumn Aurora Arsenal + Patch overwrite. = Strelok's Inventory screen grids all out of place. Settings 1080p res. all textures maxed. Although it's just the hud that's not fitting the grid lines. No one else is having this issue? Thank you for the add-on seeZ☢™, the game works, just that inventory problem.
Would love to see more zombie infestation in the zone where they are free to roam & moan. Different types of zombies would be nice too, different models. The most terrifying would be a screaming woman zombie as she's chasing you through the wilderness... damn... I crap myself... brb...
O_O ...wow... very realistic, beautiful model, good job!
I'm a little unclear but I believe I just read this update as saying there will be 3 dwarf factions in game with their own unique heroes??? In which case (O_O) wow!!!
This is wonderful news, I'm hoping after the polished mod you could resurrect some of the unfinished mods for the other 2 (ie. BFME2 & ROTWK) games. All the best on your restructuring! :)
Perfect description, love the realism & logic you put into this mod.
I like... I like it a lot
Huba Huba Huba!!!
If you watched the original STALKER movie, you might get a better understanding of why there were no females in the zone.
...but on a very scary note, you would think the bandits would have a brothel to pass the time since they could never go back to civilization... plus history is unkind to women.
Nice work Pendalose, it looks like armored vehicles are getting their neon on. XD
Sounds like an Iron Curtain power ending with a suicide bomber's fate...hmm...maybe a mini-nuclear explosion would give it a fitting death for such a powerful war-machine.
If that's the case, I hope the mod will scale everything to make everything look relatively proportional to everything else.
VTOL aircraft should have that option, plus the "airports" in generals are ridiculously compact for normal aircraft. I'm hoping the airplanes in the game have realistic flight speeds after take-off, for interesting areal battles rather then what was shown in the video of airplanes moving like at cloud speed. I hope my choice and suggestion make sense and help the mod out. Good luck Gunz
I would have to agree, no marines would knowingly go into a dark mission without flashlights. A way to remedy that, would be to have the lights go out from certain triggers when maybe the tech marine does something wrong or someone shoots a barrel that knocks out the power etc etc... even in "Aliens" the flashlight is standard, you could have the flashlight that's unlocked on later lvls light up more of the map while a standard light has a small range/radius. Just some helpful thoughts. Game looks scary good!
Wow, now that's a pornographic image you got there.
-In a final effort the Taliban who spread a message of propaganda which made their enemies tremble in fear and innocent civilians join their cause, all in the name of Allah. (Might want to change the Taliban, which are locally centered in Afghanistan to Al-Qaeda which is a terrorist organization all over the Muslim world).
No problem, I understand, I'd like to suggest making the AIs of NPCs smarter and more behavior orientated. Meaning bandits stick in groups like a gang when in the zone. Loners are well...loners or in groups of 2 or 3. Military/Mercs are in groups of 4 or 5. Boar/Fleshes travel in herds lair in brush. Dogs in Packs, Bloodsuckers hunt in groups & stay in buildings which make them deadly...not the unload a clip into them and they still run around like nothing happened. Rats should be near buildings and travel in hordes of 20+ The controller surrounds himself with stalker zombies. Burers live underground/basements like dwarfs. Snorks in swamps/buildings.
Basically making a logical mod with realistic AI and not randomness is what will set this mod apart from other mods. Also unique items that certain factions carry, like smoke grenades from mercs, mines from military, unique detectors from ecologists. Along with tons of new items, modifications, weapons/ammo & artifacts will send this mods rank & fans to the top of moddb.
I'd like to hear more about you view on making this mod different.
Hi, I love the beautiful scenery, I was wondering about some of the plants changing while you were panning the camera, is that a bug or is that part of the draw distance? What are the other changes you are planning to do for this mod? Will the models of the npcs look less "plastic" looking?
Your mod has me interested again in Far Cry, please keep us updated on your progress, all the best.
Barefoot butch girl... XD I thought the model was only partially done, everyone else in the zone is clothed up for survival from mutants and radiation. She's not mutant looking enough to be local to the zone, but not geared out enough to look like she has purpose for the zone... unless she was someone's plaything and finally got a chance wander around camp...
It's great to see a female in game, great job, just needs to look more like she belongs there :)
Yup remove it all bud, real stalkers don't need to see all that, if they want to see their status they should check their inventory or pda like you would in the real world. XD XP
Nice pics bu the way :D
well when you put it that way... I'm right there with you :D
I think you were thinking about the last bit, the succubus, which in a sense could be a female controller, but she'd control you in a way you don't want to be controlled XD
The first bit was more of a female fear factor to the game, something you don't want to wake up to in the zone. :) +1 for your scary naughty thinking :p
Yea the infantry are nice, but they are giants. Scaling the model and most likely their speed down, will give players a more realistic feel for such nice realistic infantry. :)
Hope to try it out soon :)
When will the new mod be ready for testing if you're able to finish it in 1 month?
Wow, I guess Scrin is Screwed XD
I'm wondering why you chose Mount & Blade, why not Grand Theft Auto, since it has much of what the series had ei cars, buildings, modern day looking people, guns, etc.
Will be very interesting to see this mod, just stumped on the game platform choice.
XD ...ahhaha yea...
...wait wuh... 0.o
-_- ...sighs*...fine I can wait... ^_^
U Da Man Zeke!
Generals... or any C&C game for that matter are Classics that will never lose their hype, the game is always improving with mods. :)
o_o ...Whoa... will the other factions be able to capture those husks?!
LoL, I thought you said that power didn't make any sense? XD You could possibly have a power like meteor/comet drop/strike/shower. Where they harness asteroids from space and direct it towards target locations. They could be in likeness to artillery barrage or a nuclear weapon but a lot more powerful destruction wise. More 2cents from me XD
Sounds good, especially the random effects, I guess I'll save the commenting for the article then. Happy modding :)
I mentioned it was a quick fix alternative to those wanting English asap and then I get voted down for attempting to be helpful to others...I thought that feature was reserved for people that troll forums...
Wow, there's a lot of talk about this English translation lately, just convert the German into English using Google's translate, it's crude, but it get's the job done while we wait for their English translation to be complete. However the Edain team is always producing more content, so I hope they are translating the new content to English on the spot so they close the gap between the languages, otherwise we will always be waiting. I recommended awhile back that they release patches of translated material for those who absolutely cannot or will not play the mod without English. Gnomi politely replied their reason, and I respectfully accepted their decision. This mod is easily one of the top mods for this game next to RJ-RotWK with a little bit of tweaking from me. Hope this helps everyone. :)
Thank you for your reply
I like your thought process then. Too bad about Arnor, maybe you could do what the RJ-RotWK (http://www.moddb.com/mods/rj-rotwk) mod did:
- 10 Factions including Gondor, Rohan, Dwarves, Elves (3 sub-factions), Arnor, Mordor, Isengard, Wild, Men of the East (2 sub-factions), and Angmar
No one has modded this mod in a long time, and I found that mod to be a great template to make my own personal mod. Sadly disk failure and RL have stopped me from seriously modding, now it's a couple of skirmishes every now and then. Your mod is up there with the best of them, just hope that mod will help you out as it did for me.
XD dunno but it was cool right? I think it was suppose to be the equivalent to the china nuke. But you're right it was out of place, what idea did you have for their mass destruction power? Maybe an elite Gundam? Or maybe no need for one, all the hero class Gundam in Generals had their own super weapon powers. That would be unique to the gundam/robotech factions? How would each of the new factions powers be unique in your mind?
Sweet, the epic part was mainly for map (supcom huge maps) and unit size (a horde of orcs vs a legion of insert other cool unit here*).
Hopefully you'll have units use auto-cast on some of their abilities, to give some kind of semblance of realism to each unit, which would lighten the need to micromanage a group of units.
Looking forward to your demo/work :)
Worth a try right? Lol, any chance we'll be seeing some of the same powers from the original Xenoforce? Since those are already done and not being used, they might help fill the up the list of speacial powers to rival the original 3 factions.
So a transformers mod next then right? jk jk
Np, Sounds good, as long as the game is always improving & Vandrerer is happy making his mod all is well. :)
...Now all we need are Transformer factions Autobots & Decepticons...
You work fast Azuza, keep it up buddy! :)
Glad to see most of the changes I suggested implemented into the next version. Wasn't sure I read it right, but is Arnor faction no longer in the game? Awesome "become a hero" ability by the way.
A little suggestion for the Harad and Rohan Fortress Super Powers, in the movie, both factions were called in as reinforcements. Maybe for now each fortress could call in a greater number of reinforcements then other spell powers for a limited time and then disappear? Harad with Mumakil & Rohan with Horses or Elven reinforcements or both.
Hope this helps can't wait to try it out! :)
