Level Of Details

News 8 comments

Hi guys, long time has passed since the last Article, so it is time for it!

Many of you has been my support in this project for many years, so I want to thank you all for that!

Now, cut my crap and lets get to it heh!?!?

A lot has changed in the Ghost Land last few months ago, no much updates, images or news... Reason for that is I spent all those months heavily working on Ghost Land, means I have done so many things that seems to be impossible!

As you all aware a source code for both games (Call of Pripyat and Clear Sky) has come out and that was a light in the tunnel for me, and Ghost Land...

Clear Sky Engine 1.5 with patch 10 was still buggy, not in the terms of gameplay (that much), but in the Core of the Engine itself...

But I wanted this sick, old dog (that most of the community HATE) make even better than Call of Pripyat, and guess what, I have manage to do that!!!

My friend, an professor of lua programing in my nearby school teach me everything, so lua language is very simple, you just need a lot of time to understeand it!

We, both work on all files in that source code, fix all those bugs that are reported over gsc-game world community, some even on russian forums...

Now the engine itself...

Clear Sky has the most beautiful graphic of all stalker game series, and yes it was demanding, still is, but we are no long in 2008 year with those normal computors, arent we?

The details on graphic that this engine creates today is amazing, and all of that is thanks to M.E.T.R.O. Game Series...

I personally spent God knows how many hours playing those Games, notice any details, shadows, lightning, shaders etc. and transfer that in the Ghost Land...

The engine lightning is optimised and re-coded, shadows are now perfectly aligned to match any pixel, dust is created on every movement you make, shaders - one of the most important things in game is now triple better with amazing details, trees movement depend on the weather, actor shadows, grass shadows, actor hands/legs shadows on movement, textures in the distance now finally are displayed properly and so on, I will not reveal any more but trust me, there is so many of it...

The most important thing is The Graphic Itself is 500% better than in Call of Pripyat!!!

When's the release date? Because I can't wait! This looks like a piece of well prepared artwork to me.
When it releases, will we have to do the gamedata file fiasco where we have to switch files around, or will it have an install wizard?

Oh, well, that's not what I meant. I meant do we have to download the files, the extract the files, and all that crap for it to work? Or will it have a setup wizard that will download itself into the game? And when will we get it?

Wow man haven't heard about your mod for quite some times now , to be honest i was sure that ya didn't left or "froze" this project, every update you made reveled your concerns about the quality of the game and ghost land , to see ya reach this level of quality today i can only say great job mate , but the sad news is that it's another reason for me to buy a new computer my ****** 5 years-old laptop was able to do great stuff like running modded CS ,COP pretty well , but with your amazing level of quality of the mod , of the video games today , he will not catch up or give a descent result anymore , even then i'll still support you and your future projects ;) ! Changing to the world constant +60 fps might be quite a change for me ;P ! Best of luck to you stalker !
