Stalkers, you want to travel in a open Zone. This freeplay mod is for you. I use two greatest mods as base, the FreePlayStart by Xiani and the Stalker Map Pack by Kostyan et al. This mod add new spawn in empty levels, modify level geometry for few levels and add news ones. And more features are coming...Now, your Zone is extended and it is coming to life.
It's a beta demo of my first level, Bog area. It contains a marsh level with forest and deserted scientific bunker. Beware, this demo need 1.0006 SuperBin.
Into The Zone - BOG level demo
### INSTALLATION ###
Install S.T.A.L.K.E.R SoC world wide version and patch 1.0006
Install SuperBin for SoC 1.0006
Copy the gamedata folder from the demo archive to your S.T.A.L.K.E.R. folder (ex. C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl).
Go to your Stalker directory and open the file "fsgame.ltx" with a normal text editor. Then you just have to change the second line:
$game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\
$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\
Start a new game.
If you don't want to install 1.0006 Super Bin, you could copy-paste the gamedata folder to your 1.0004 or 1.0005 Stalker SoC version.
You need to decrease "Distance Vision" parameters to minimum in graphics options. Without that, game crash randomly as CS Marsh or CoP levels from Stalker map pack.
