Autumn Aurora 2 it's modification made by small group from Poland which brings the autumnal atmosphere to the Zone and totally overhauls the graphics, audio and gameplay of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.

As usual: sorry for my lame English.
After the months of polishing weather system is finally ready.
On the following screens I showed only one hour from 6 cycles(I forgot about 7th, a bit foggier and more haunting than you can see here).
Sometimes I heard the questions about different atmosphere from the first version of AA.
Yes, will be different- more haunted, in the shades of grey and brown BUT all lovers of the golden autumn will be really happy because there are a lot of hours between pale-blue autumnal sky and this characteristic pale autumnal sunlight, which is different than sun in the summer. Maybe I didn't show this golden autumn
on the screens but you can trust me that you will see it(especially during the sunsets and sunrises! :-))
Don't worry- you won't run with flashlight inday. Everything is perfectly balanced. Screenshots doesn't shows the whole lighting- sometimes clouds cast shadows and sometimes it's looks just awesome when you are standing in full sun and you are seeing the flowing shadows a few meters away from you.
Audio site is also finished. Each weather's cycle has own unique ambient sounds. I'll be honestly and maybe it will sounds rudely, but playing with this mod, I felt again
this SAD atmosphere of the Zone like in 2007 when I played in this game first time.
I really hope that you will feel the same sadness, feeling of solitude and truly beautiful atmosphere.
