The superb Dynamic Hud mod created by Smurth for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat, is now compatible with Call of Chernobyl, and optionally Arsenal Overhaul, STCoP, OWR and/or Outfit Addon. The goal of this addon is immersion: - No more intrusive HUD (see the "optional" folder for seven variants). - Breathing sounds: you will hear the actor breathing differently according to the kind of situation. - Dynamic visual breath effect. - Bleeding screen edge indicators. - Radiation sound indicators and little visual effects on high radiation levels. - Automatically remove gasmask and/or hide weapon on the usage of medkits, bandage, food, vodka and drugs. - Optional 3D animations when you plant and detonate a C4 charge, use the consumables, loot mutants and also when you get hurt severely. - Optional weapon overheating effects causing a weapon condition to temporarily decrease as the weapon heats up, including a smoke effect if your weapon gets really hot. - Optional weapon's recoil effects.
Version 3.2.2 is out!
What is new in the version:
- Restructured: C-4 is no longer default. Old saves using c-4 must add the c-4 option to work.
(this feature is not available when playing with STCoP or OWR due to an incompatibility)
1- Dynamic Hud + animations options integrated into the "Game" menu of Call of Chernobyl, making it perfect to configure the addon in-game.
2- Outstanding 3D animations when you use medkits, bandage, anti-radiation drug, energy drink, hercules, vodka, bread, diet sausage, tourist's breakfast, drug pills, edible mutant parts, loot mutants, plant and detonate C4 charges and also when you get hurt severely. Note: To enjoy 3D animations, make sure that you have selected "full" under "Consumable Animations" option and don't abuse of effects to avoid overlapping when using several items at the same time.
3- Enhanced shot effects, simulating more realistically the recoil of your weapon, selectable (on/off) in the "Game" menu.
4- Weapon overheating effects causing a weapon condition to temporarily decrease as the weapon heats up, also selectable (on/off and the optional HUD bar) in the "Game" menu and including a smoke effect if your weapon gets really hot.
5- Dynamic breath effect that depends not only from stamina but also from your helmet's condition (a highly damaged helmet will not present it, simply fix it to have the effect back).
Copy all the content of "Install Files - Copy ALL the content into CoC dir" folder of this addon into CoC dir (if you want to play with AO, STCoP, OWR and/or OA, they must be already installed, what means that the Dynamic Hud mod has to be installed on top of the other mods) and overwrite files when asked.
Apply the compatibility patch corresponding to the weapon/outfit addons of your choice (please check the options below).
Check the "optional_hud_and_npc" folder of this mod for extra HUD (please check below the preview of all HUDs) and NPC spot options, a patch that will turn the helmet textures off (you will get "everything", sounds, animations, effects, HUD, etc..., except the helmet textures), and also a patch to revert back to the default "helmet textures on".
All optional HUDs feature dynamic bleeding effects, including the "Regular", "Autumn Aurora 2 styled" and "Small HUD Lite" ones.
Check the "optional_conserva_animation_AO_ONLY!" folder of this mod for an optional animation to the tourist's breakfast, exclusive to Arsenal Overhaul users (it is NOT compatible with other weapon mods), and also a patch to revert back to the previous animation.

HUD Reworked and Extras 2.0
This mod is a remake of the original "DynamicHUD" by Rulix.
It also contains a modified version of "DynamicHelmets" by
Mechanic, Shoker, and Antnigm.
Except the hit_effect() and shoot_effect() functions which
contains only minor modifications, everything has been
written from scratch.
The textures used for the helmets/gasmask are based on the
work of FlyingDebris.
Since some people had crashes when trying to merge this
mod with Atmosfear3, I've decided to release it as well.
The mod has been developped and tested on 16/9 screen only,
and the 4/3 version of some files are just copies of the
Feel free to adapt their 16/9 counterpart for 4/3 screen and
contact me to see your name added to the credit list :)
- no more intrusive HUD; only ammunition type is shown
(see "optional" folder for variants)
- breathing sounds: you will hear the actor breathing in
different kind of situations; when he wear a gasmask,
when he's running, when he's getting hit hard, and, of
course, at low stamina levels. I've tried to make the
breathing as natural as possible, including variation
of its speed/volume.
- bleeding screen edge indicators.
- radiation sound indicators and little visual effects
on high radiation levels.
- automaticaly hide weapon and/or remove gasmask on some
item usage, plus other special effects (see below)
- basic medkit usage incapacitates the actor for about 10s.
This is to show you how you can play with item using
effects, but don't abuse of effects to avoid overlapping
when using several item at the same time.
- Weapon's recoil effects.
Notes for modders/scripters:
The actor_effects_data.script file contains three tables:
- "options" which let you tweak the helmet/breath part.
- "wpn_fx" containing data used by the recoil effects.
- "item_fx" containing sequences of action "played" on
The "wpn_fx" table is still a work in progress but you
should be aware that the total recoil amount depends on:
- the ratio (installed cam_dispersion upgrades) / (weapon
Note: the upgrade must have the "prop_recoil" property
and define the "cam_dispersion" value.
- the "impair" ammo coef.
- the player aiming or not. See "k_aim" at the begining of
the wpn_fx table.
IF YOU WANT TO DISABLE THE SHOOT EFFECT, JUST COMMENT OUT
THE CALL TO "ammo_check()" IN THE "update()" FUNCTION
(LINE 34) OF "scripts\actor_effects.script".
I highly recommend to use actor_effects.use_weapon(0) and
actor_effects.use_weapon(1) instead of db.actor:hide_weapon()
and db.actor:restore_weapon(), respectively.

Thanks to jketiynu, trojanuch and MacBradley for their
feedback, to Xavier De La Obra for his Voron Mod and
special thanks to Alundaio who gave me some bright advices
about the scripting thing.
