Call of Pripyat Complete is the third entry in the Complete mod series, which is a set of modifications created by professional artists dedicated to enhancing the production quality of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game series. The Complete mod series emphasize on improving the original graphics, sound, and atmosphere of each game while preserving the core game elements. Built upon the success of Stalker Complete 2009, which was downloaded by one in every five S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl players, this entry in the Complete mod series is the cumulative culmination of the series’ achievements in aesthetically updating the game without changing the original story or gameplay. Designed to meet the desires of new players and veterans alike, Call of Pripyat Complete unleashes the full potential of the latest, climactic chapter in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R and the Complete mod series.
This mod is promising but ultimately detrimental to the overall experience of the game. I am of course talking about crashes and a long standing lack of support.
Edit: The previous consistent crash I had attributed to CoP is apparently a common issue, I had previously only found people bringing it to light with some relation to Complete, when I found this was in fact, not the case after further research.
The operative line in the crash log is "[error]Description : ...r call of pripyat\gamedata\scripts\xr_effects.script:1470: attempt to index local 'squad' (a nil value)"
I stand by my rating as there are still issues due to a lack of support.
Any kind of animation or cinematic is preceding and ended with a long pause in which my character stands there staring into space, unable to move or draw a weapon. This goes for departure and arrival with fast travel(Not the coordinate teleport feature). Glitches causing NPCs to walk through walls tend to occur more frequently, and this has even led to a snork dropping through a ceiling and killing me. I found out it was coming from the floor above me after reloading and coming back to that area.
I like this Mod, because it gives the game a darker and autenthic Atmosphere altough it has already an immersive Atmosphere. And you can´t say something bad if somebody puts so much effort in this free mod. That´why I rated it 10. 10/10 would download it again.
This mod gave me really good times, and really bad ones. I have Mixed reactions, is great when do the right things but is the most unstable mod I've seen. Almost all the time you will be trying to solve the engine crash and the 1.6 engine stop working error, Its time to let it go for good. There are better mods right now than this one.
I'm voting 10 trying influence producers to correct issues and bugs. This is a good product, maybe with bad optimisation, but it gave me a survival horror feel that I never found in any other modification, neither in MISERY. Honestly, the real rating should be located between 7.5 to 9, but I'm still hoping in a patch to remove those annoying bugs that made the game unplayable for certain players.
