Really looking forward to the patch (glad the money bug is fixed haha) and continued support for this incredible game (it is an insult to call this a mere mod). Thanks so much Dezowave; I have already donated and will donate again from time to time to help support you guys. Hopefully over time more and more of the community will join you (especially programmers/animators, etc) to help polish LA even more so that it can be the best it can be.

I must also say: the artefact merger system is very cool! Love it; you must add some more recipes! I would love an artefact that adds weight (like CoP did); that would be awesome. One thing though about the artefact merger process: perhaps just increase the chance for success more since it will prevent 'save-scumming' to get the artefact as opposed to the rejects. I know I will keep using save-scumming to make the artefacts (which reduces immersion a bit of course), because some of those components are so tough to get, to lose them and get nothing in return is a bit harsh.

Also, at a later date please take a look at the upgrade system: there are some bugs with some upgrades that actually make the items worse (like +recoil, etc.); though I can imagine this will take some time to troubleshoot, so rather focus on the more critical stuff now, but please do fix it sometime since the weapon/armor customization aspect is one of my favourite features (I love how you implemented it by having to make sacrifices, i.e. not being able to get all upgrades).

Keep up the great work guys; this is an incredible game; thank you for all the effort you put in.

Thank you for the very interesting context of the development of the mod. You are overly critical of the mod though, but perhaps that is just because I know just how much work goes into creating something like DXN that I more easily overlook the 'flaws' in mods (though of course I have limits as well).

With DXN, yes the voice acting could have been better, but it wasn't so bad to be honest and in fact even Agent Ingram's voice and character grew on me after a while. I found the level design to be awesome personally, I have no qualms with it, so very good job there. The game pacing and progression systems were also very well done, so you did excellent work there. The writing was not so bad to be honest, it was average (if I had to try to quantify it, I'd say about 65-70% grade), but was quite well paced/revealed throughout the story (which was very intentional on your part as you admit). The soundtrack though (as you admit) was incredible, so kudos to Retro for that; it was for me by far the most "Deus-exy" soundtrack of all the big mods (slightly eclipsing even TNM soundtrack...and that is an impressive feat); awesome work.

Overall, an incredible mod and yes you and all others involved have left your legacy for the DX community. So from all of us: thank you and best of luck in your future endeavours.

I agree with Woozle. Also consider this: when you crouch and use the aimsight, reduce the recoil massively so that it simulates you putting the firearm on tripods or at the very least going prone. I think the point of using a MG is that you want to be able to just shoot a massive volley, instead of short bursts (which are what most ARs are for). Forcing the player to at least crouch (since CS doesn't have prone iirc) balances out being able to just let rip with a MG (spray and pray basically). If you can't do that, I don't see the point of even having MG in the game.

Haha, agreed Vintar. Some of these would swear they don't read anything. It's all these modern CoD players trying out LA and crying that there is no or little hand holding. Guess what guys! A Massive part of STALKER and LA is about EXPLORING and actually PAYING ATTENTION (to instructions and the Zone). /rant

Just made a sizeable donation to Dezowave as a thank you for LA. Again, LA is an incredible achievement. A true work of passion. Even though it is still very buggy and has one or two design problems, the foundation is there and that foundation is pure gold. So please accept my donation Dezowave as a thank you and a hope that you will continue to work on LA so as to make it all it can be. The hard work is over right? It is now just the polish; the car is built, now just to do the trimmings. Hopefully in time as more discover this masterpiece they will lend their talents to the team. This release proves just what modders and Dezowave in particular can accomplish. Here is to the release and continued growth of LA! /salute
