This is a work in progress release of FB: UNLEASHED so you can see the current progress. Instillation instructions, legal notes and change logs can be...
The Zone is a unforgiving place where S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S. must use everything they can to live another day. Do you wish you could build barricades to keep the mutants and bandits at bay? Do you wish you could climb onto a box and reach that vodka on top of that cabinet? With this modification; no longer will you have to run for cover! You'll be able set up cover such as tables, boxes, signs and more! You'll also be able to place other items such as chairs, sniper-towers, dumpsters and even teapots! So you just ran inside a house and heard a bloodsucker roaring not far off? Why don't you barricade yourself in with a table and a few boxes? What's wrong? Too short to jump over a wall or a fence? Just set down a box! The possibilities are endless!
I plan to re-work the actual fort-building mechanics and actually add the newly added items to the actual game world.. NPC traders just aren't going to cut it...
What you do with the various items is your choice, Stalker... I also plan to do some voice-acting; As I mentioned in the UNLEASHED features list; I will be adding three extra factions to the zone; thus, I think a monologue would be pretty fitting for the character I've worked on.
As for the pet feature; I'm still looking into this... I know one thing however; it will be "hacked" together so to speak.. I will work on this on vanilla to start with; I think spawning a dog via a special spawn menu and having it set to follow you will work (Although it would make mutants friendly to you whilst the dog is spawned - Which could be abused...). Anyhow; the basic concept is; once it is "injured" (dead) you must go to a trader to have it's "timer" set to 0 = spawnable again. That's the basic concept; chaotic as you can see... I shan't be having this high up in my priorities for the reasons above.
Unsure about the food/music hud system; It caused a lot of bugs and I've encountered a few CTD's when loading with this from time to time... For the sake of stability; I will leave it out although if enough people want it; I'll have it set up as a OPTIONAL addon to FB:Unleashed.
Now that I've got a new laptop I'll also be able to actually show mod progress with good graphics.
So yeah.. A long awaited update. I'll have another in a few days concerning progress above.
