1 comment by TecnoBacon on Sep 28th, 2013

Patch available now, more fixes and additions.

All should update, new games not needed but if an old save has an issue then please send to stalkersoup@tecnobacon.com and I will try to resolve it for you.Things are moving fast and there is work starting on getting the task descriptions improved so a guide should not be needed as the NS guide is becomming less accurate all the time.

Next focus is the final balancing of weapons into the game world scale, this will make some weapons much less lethal at a distance. I will be writing about the new enhancements made on my site in the next few days. Things like the dynamic objects per level and dynamic sound zones which all share the same memory space. Protected logic so npc without any story continuation will not crash the game but force the npc into an idle state until talked to or threatened. Much more has been done so I will get these posted and the theory behind them.

109933fix 2 is in the Repository.
This fix will take care of Voronin and also the bad saves but you must go back to a save before the corruption of your bio radar and/or when your pause menu screen fails.

109928 Update
Almost ready, still working on wharehouses. Actually it is a flaw in the group spawner, some of the spawn radius callouts were commented in the all.spawn and this one inadvertantly commented out the logic for the squad spawns so the barrier squad that is supposed to be attached to the captain never spawn.

The load out system was the key to balancing the squads in combat situations, can't wait until I have time to expand them from 5 levels of probability to 10. I need to get the weapons catagorized and completely listed (dAVROs has been doing some, thanks!), then I (or someone) can truly balance them accross the Zone.

New Bioradar also works smooth and is much better in combat. It now will show all living creatures first then corpses up to the scan limit. This way a reasonable limit can be placed on the radar update slice to prevent staggers and stalls.

I have perfected the 'one in the gut then one in the head' style combat... when you shoot an npc in the gut he will scrunch over and loose his composure for a short time which allows for the second shot. The timmings and hit ranges are very touchy and now that the ranges are correct small changes make BIG differences.

Hopefully I will have the bad squad spawning fixed soon and can release this patch.

I'm having the same problem! Once It happens to me when I start the game. I patch the game to the latest patch and after I start a new game my icons are distorted and all! I've not a clue how to fix it. I delete the user.ltx and replace it again then the same thing happens. I'd really love to play this mod but I can't. So any suggestions TecnoBacon? I would really appreciate it! Thanks :D

this is the texture_lod value, it must be 0 or 1, 2 is not supported.
It changes to 2 when you put texture detail to half or less.
