I have a lot of interest in Half-life and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. modding.
These are two franchises that sit above anything else in gaming. Also interested in M&B Warband modding.
I'm too a really huge fan of franchises like Metro, Mass Effect and Deus Ex.
RPS focus on aggressive writing... They're some other kind of journalists, and, personally, I really enjoy their articles. You should take a look at their article on Mass Effect: Reborn mod (saying it won't be long until EA "foxes" it) or their chronicles (their DayZ publication made me fear playing that game).
We, the fans, all know it's more than just THAT. That's what will always matter. Our love towards your work. Their disinterested journalism towards LA mustn't be taken seriously.
Took them a while to notice this.
Also, I must say they're kinda cruel when they say that they weren't even aware there was a possibility of LA being an official part of the franchise.
Still, I can't really understand how what happened completely crosses all the chances.
GSC wouldn't have to pay a cent to make money out of this.
Just put it on a digital platform and share the profit with Dez0wave and the owners of the distribution. Then call it "a reimagination of what the games could have been".
Internet would make any advertisement LA needed.
You guys should upload the fix to ModDB. Many people are not noticing it.
Just a suggestion...
It is a standalone game. No need for SoC.
You realize that I'll have 1 year or + to play Lost Alpha, before this comes out.
Though, a lot of mods with brand new stories (like Lost World: Origin) are in the making, so I'll have a lot of STALKER to play.
Russian fans and modders are really something else...
Download Old Good STALKER Mod 1.8 Community Edition, though it's a russian mod and it's translation is a bit clumsy (only downside). You can find it here Moddb.com just look for it in the blog post.
Alternatively, you can download Clear Sky Mod Pack 2012 by boredgunner Moddb.com
Though, even though it looks really pretty, there are a few things I'm not a fan of.
OGSM 1.8 CE if you don't care about some misunderstanding, but want great immersion and features.
CS Mod Pack 2012 if you want the best graphics.
I really hope that once this is released, it will keep my STALKER hunger satiated for some more time.
So, any news?
I'm able to install and start the mod, but once in-game, I can't do anything but looking around.
Can't move, shoot, whatever.
I checked the options menu and the "keyboard" tab is completely empty.
Can someone help?
How about you just posted the fix here ??
I must say:
I'm supper happy that Lost Alpha is finally coming out. It's been difficult enduring all the planned releases that were not met. The hype as been unbearable.
Though, it displeases me that it won't be seeing a commercial release. Dez0wave deserved it.
Yea, I know that it wasn't certain, but it was possible. And if it depended on the quality presented, I'm sure there would be a lot of it, certainly more than we ever had in any STALKER game's first release.
It would've been great if GSC just sped up the process and worked with Dez0wave to put Lost Alpha as soon as possible on Steam's Early Access (even though I hate it), for example. And don't tell me it can't be sold because it is free somewhere else, because, we all know, everything becomes "free" when it's final. More importantly, the leaked build wasn't even representative of the final quality, as it was 6 months old.
Anyway, I'd love if, post-release, we, the fans, got kind of an "Aftermath" article, describing what happened behind closed doors, not only about the development, but also about those talks the team had with GSC and this accident, in particular.
Greatest of luck for the devs, and I'll be waiting to hear more on that upcoming project and playing the hell out of Lost Alpha.
Good luck, Stalkers ;)
Any ETA on the Steam release?
I just started a new game, so I bought a silencer for my Makarov. Correct round type. Only there's no way to attach it.
Is it supposed to be like this?
When it comes to new levels and quests, how much of it is already implemented?
This mod is gorgeous. If it hand't been said (and if I didn't knew the game), I would never think this is being built on a engine released in 1998.
Your work is amazing.
It's sad to see that this mod isn't getting finished, at least by you.
I wish you luck on your future endeavors :)
Fabulous as always.
Your work is inspiring ;)
I know that. But he's just gone. I even tried using the quest marker to pinpoint his location on the map but nothing popped up. I also searched the Bar for corpses, as I believe he is an "essential" character and his corpse wouldn't disappear when dead. Looked everywhere for him.
Nothing. Any advise?
I am supposed to give Plichko (Duty member) a crossbow. I found both the crossbow at Freedom's base and the one in the Wild Territory.
However, Plichko is nowhere to be found near the Bar or other Duty members.
How improved will stealth be in this mod?
In vanilla, a silent kill and your enemies would instantly know where you are. Or, when sneaking in the shadows, if they faced you from 100m (without a chance of seeing you, 'cause darkness), they would immediately become aware.
I haven't understood something yet:
Is this also a new storyline or just a gameplay, visuals and other enhancements mod?
Anyway, it's looking great and I'll definitely it. I love the rusty detail on weapons and all the Metro: Last Light inspiration.
Good luck with your work NightRider ;)
I can't wait to get my hands on that demo !
Ok, thanks :)
I hope I'll find it again.
I need help with one small "issue", if that's what we may call it:
I had this amazing weapon that I believe was a AUG machine gun variant (100 rounds, golden/yellowish) that I had found in a stash by the passage to Yantar. Though, somehow, I lost it. I don't have it in any stash anywhere. I think I may have sold it (checked traders, didn't find it) or dropped it by mistake. I usually clear my saves every now and then and now I have none with the weapon.
I just want to know if it's a unique/special weapon, and if I'm ever going to see it again.
Whoa! Looks amazing. Really dark atmosphere.
Is it just me or the next version should be called L.U.R.K. 2 ?
I mean, it's been a long time since the last release (4 years now), and after all the progress that we've seen being made, it just feels like something all-new, and not just a patch.
Seriously guys, this is shaping up to be the best SoC mod out there.
You have to name your mod not only to sound good, but to demonstrate how far you've come. Think about it.
Good luck with your work devs ;)
This is awesome news. I can't wait to play a mod remake of the old storyline!
Why would it be dead? Last announcement was made in this year's January, and the images look pretty decent.
I'm just worried about the existence of an exact release date that may not be met...
About that rebranding, how about:
The Refuge ('cause some people flee to the Zone and try to find wealth)
Just trying to help :)
I wish I had a top spec PC to play STALKER with this amount of beautiful.
This screen is just awe inspiring *.*
Thanks man. Wouldn't have found it myself ;)
Hey, do you think you can early-release a standalone install of that HUD? It looks really slick :)
Fantastic! Can't wait for it to hit Steam :)
Lovely news. Great work you're doing with OWR.
The mod is certainly in good hands :)
I really appreciate the honesty. It's to sad to see this is not being finished, not when it seemed to be so close... Our community loses a lot with this sad news.
Best of luck on your new project. I hope it's something along the lines of STALKER :)
There it is. I knew it was stated somewhere.
I remember an article saying he was planning on adding killable Lords...
Amazing work. Been expecting for more of this for a long time.
Can't wait for more :)
You've been teasing us with screenshots of this mod you're working on, and I must say, I'm actually excited to learn a lot more about it.
It's looking really good.
This is something I'd love to test ;)
I've only tested NMRiH when it comes to sourcemods, but I've tested some other f2p games.
I love how gray and dirty this mod look *o*
L4D2 can surely use some good campaigns, and you're right on track!
Keep up the good work guys ;)
It looks and sounds awesome. Awaiting eagerly ;)
Looks beautiful *o*
