Time to start the wandering, stalker...

Autumn Aurora 2 has been released!

The second version of the Autumn Aurora brings the autumnal atmosphere to the Zone and totally overhauls the graphics, sound and gameplay of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl. The mod is built on the newest Zone Reclamation Project's core, it contains official AtmosFear for ShoC which has never been released before. AtmosFear has been extensively redesigned to match the autumn style.
It also holds an official new Absolute Nature for ShoC (never released as standalone as well) with new tree models from AN3 CoP and some new ones.

It is the perfect opportunity for every S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fan to immerse again into Chernobyl universe in completely different style this time.

The Zone calls again...

Hi, I am big fan of the vanilla game, so my question is: is it possible to install AA2 mod, but only visuals? (skins, models etc.) what I dont want to change is the story mode, stash contents and such things. Many thanks, awesome work.

Been an absolute blast playing through the mod, one or two things here and there but overall it was super enjoyable. However my game constantly crashes right when I am about to enter the sarcophagus, tossing me this log:

[error]Expression : fatal error
[error]Function : CInifile::r_section
[error]File : E:\stalker\sources\trunk\xrCore\Xr_ini.cpp
[error]Line : 342
[error]Description : <no expression>
[error]Arguments : Can't open section ''

If I can get a fix, that would be awesome, would suck to not be able to finish the game when I am nearing the end.

Never mind, now the arguments became the save corruption 'ac' one. With only the main quests on my PDA and right before the end too, feelsbadman.

Personal Feedback so far.

Really enjoying the gun play and graphics overhaul, although the lens flare seems to be obstructing the view. Just a couple complaints but really enjoying the mod so far.

= What I don't like about the mod so far: =

// Bloody Screen \\ -
When health is taken down to a certain state, your screen will become red/bloody which becomes very obstructive.

Would be nice if it disappeared after a few seconds (2 or 3) or just reducing the amount of blood covering the screen.

// Bandages \\ -
Overtime healing was a very nice touch however since It takes so long to apply a mere bandage, this mechanic doesn't feel nice combined with bloody screen because it's going to take time for it to disappear which results in ruining gameplay experience having to hide in a corner all the time. This is very noticeable at the beginning of the game as medkits are a rare resource.

Would be nice if they gave you 1 bar of health upon using then for the remaining duration of the bandage, it regenerates.

// Ammo Counter \\ -
I understand It's probably for immersive gameplay but being able to see how much ammo I have in the clip would be nice.

= What I like about the mod so far: =

// Graphics \\ -
A bit bright to begin with but can be edited to our liking. Really love the graphics overhaul so far as I feel very immersive in my surroundings, the depth of field really added a nice touch however feels a bit too strong/intense.

The UI could be slightly changed and moved more towards the centre of the screen but for the most part, It works and It's something different.

// Gameplay and Gunplay \\ -
I'm pretty impressed at how satisfying the recoil is, Gameplay feels more intense and harder which is great, the only thing holding it back is that bloody screen.

// New Items/Weapons \\ -
New weaponry with their own custom animations was very nice, some new items were a nice bonus as well. Really grateful for this as it adds more variety to the games gunplay.

I'm also having some issues with pitch black player models/props/animals, etc. Even though It's full day light.

ENB postprocessing works with vanilla shaders only. Install non-ENB version and merge with whatever shaders you like.

Stunning graphics and game design, the autumn environments look crisp and natural. A fantastic mod for Shoc that succesfully introduces an alternative art direction...
