Posted by on

In this video, we presentate the trunk and fuel feature we made. In short, fuel is needed for vehicles. It will be hard to find, and expensive to buy.

Why to have fuel?

Well, vehicles now have nice trunk, so you can pack there your stuff, much easier to carry weapons, and other items to the trader, isn't it? Trunks have limited space, we plan not to give more than the player's actual carry capacity. Also not all vehicles will have trunk, only the 2 lada nivas, the vaz2105, moskvich, zaz986 and zaz918, and possibly the uaz. (it would look strange to have a little trunk on a big kamaz or zil truck)

As you see, it may be important to use vehicles from now, if you are that "collector" type of player. Applying the fuel is easy. When the vehicle runs out of fuel, it will stop. Then from inventory, you can refill the benzin/gas and can continue your way. Vehicles needs to be purchased from traders. You may also find lost cars in the zone, but 99% of them won't work, or the rest will be locked. You will be able to purchase lockpicks at bandits, but entering the bandit base won't be an easy journey :)

will you make cars demagable as in old stalker was planned?(i DO NOT mean twisted metal on model, that would require almost new engine for just this thing - like in Carmageddon2=)

If I may put here suggestion:

I wouldnt make them explode, like they was in OL. Thats ******** you hit three and your car explodes and dissapear?

I would make car just unoperatable,like you cannot start motor anymore, or replace it with its prop model when it is destroyed.

that would be badass your car brokes, so you will still have your stuff in trunk and it is still around, but you cant ride it anymore.

what do you think?

It would be funny if you had just loaded up a bunch of loot into your trunk to haul back to a trader, and a bandit came out of the brush and carjacked you. That would definitely make me mad, and laugh at the same time.

So now we get Ukrainian IFVs and MBTs patrolling around?.

That would be such a OP and a "hax" scenario.

So you found it a good idea to add vehicles such as the Kamaz and the BTR without some sort of way of refueling? I wasted 500k on a BTR and instantly saved the game under the impression I would at least be able to refuel and repair it, nope not the case once you run out of fuel you can't use it anymore. Great use of money. That's a stupid idea, and the Kamaz being unable to carry anything? What's all the cargo space in the back for then? Also you say it's vehicle realism but only being able to put in the trunk of a vehicle what you can have in a backpack is ridiculous you have a whole trunk the back seat and the floor space, you could hold so much in all that space if it were realistic. The BTR you could also store a bunch of stuff in the back where the troops are to sit. That's so stupid how you call it realism when you can't open the back of a Kamaz or a BTR and put a few things in.

Hey guys. One conclusion. I played stalker last month to the end and there is one point I would add to the car. When you open or close the door, it will be very nice to add a open and closing door sound to it. I missed it or reality feeling. Lost Alpha ist a stunning game. I will buy it and play it once more with a better graphic card then mine at the moment. Best, introflexie.
