PUBLIC TEST VER - SAH ENG v1.22 COMPATIBLE - Makes artefacts more visible on the Svarog and also enables the Svarog to display the artefacts added by the SAH add-on.
Svarog's Artefact Visibility - Public Test Version
Welcome to the public test for SAV! While I have done my best to ensure that this small add-on works as well as possible, your mileage may vary. If you have any problems please let me know through moddb either via the comments section for this add-on or messaging me directly. I will do what I can to try and solve the problem, however please note that I am not a skilled modder and this is very much my first attempt at modding any of the STALKER games by myself.
If you yourself are an actual mod-maker and know how I could improve this add-on, please do let me know in as much technical detail as you can manage. Though I do request your patience if you do attempt to teach me anything.
Pre-amble aside, I made this add-on for my own purposes after playing CoC with SAH. I found that the artefact icon on the Svarog was simply too small and hard to see, fixing that was my main concern in the process of creating this add-on. However, in the process I also decided to make the Svarog detector also able to display the new artefacts added by the SAH add-on for QoL.
This add-on is intended to be used with the SAH add-on, however it should be perfectly compatible with vanilla CoC. This add-on should also be completely compatible with every other add-on so long as they do not make any changes to:
For this reason I cannot guarantee that even the vanilla version of SAV will be compatible with any other add-ons which tweak artefacts, detectors or the PDA in any way. Though any conflicts should be easy to fix by manually merging the relevant files.
-- INSTALLATION --
This add-on is pre-packaged and designed for use with JSGME, if using JSGME simply drop the desired contents of this archive into your MODS folder and enable according to your desired configuration. Starting a new game is not required as this add-on is completely plug & play.
If you're not using JSGME then all you need to do is go into the relevant main folders and copy the gamedata folders from each over to your main CoC directory according to your desired configuration.
Once again, thank you for downloading my add-on and participating in the public test. Hopefully your experience will be free of any issues. However, if you do have any problems then please be sure to let me know and I'll do what I can.
Thanks to polomane of gamewatcher.com for his SVAROG MK2 mod as it was a valuable resource in figuring out how textures worked.
Credit for the yellow Svarog texture belongs to the developer(s) of SAH v1.22, I simply tweaked it to improve display visibility
