64 comments by Panzerdraco on Sep 28th, 2014

Firstly, allow us to get this out of the way: L.U.R.K. mod is no longer in active development, and we're launching a new project on Unreal Engine 4.

For a long time now, a lot of you have been asking about L.U.R.K. 2.0. Truth be told, we were enthusiastic about the future of the mod, and all the recent developments in the STALKER modding community were extremely promising. Within the past few months, we've seen the release of the much-awaited Lost Alpha mod, as well as the source code leaks for both SoC and CoP.

We were spoiled for choice, and took a step back to reassess the direction of the mod, now we had so much more to work with. Despite all these new and exciting developments, we kept having to face the grim reality: no matter what, we'd still be working with half-broken tools, shoddy SDKs, and messy code just to make it all work.

Relatively recently, Epic Games launched their new Unreal Engine 4 on a new subscription model, making it accessible to many indie developers putting their foot in the door of the games industry. Some of us who already hold game dev jobs were already working with UE4 and enjoying its power and usability immensely, which made going back to STALKER development all the more frustrating. So in the end, we made the decision: we're going to march into the future, and carve out something from scratch. A new game that serves as a spiritual successor, but without all the shortcomings and buggy workarounds inherent to working with STALKER's engines.

This decision was based on a lot of factors - with the amount of assets we've made for LURK, we can painlessly move them over to UE4 to have a solid foundation to work with. We'd also be gaining a lot of relevant experience working with UE4, so even if we fail, we'd still walk away with something we can take into potential future careers.

However, it's still sad to say goodbye to the project that first inspired us to become developers, and I hope that you all understand that we don't make this decision lightly. L.U.R.K. has been my baby for over three years now, but now is as good of a time as any to move on to bigger and better things.

Keep on lurking, fellow LURKers. We have great confidence in the STALKER modding community still, and we know that you'll all find enjoyable mods still being released into the future for this great game series. Expect to hear from us again about our new project sometime soon!

Bring back the minimap. u have like pda but u cannot see ur friend from it. u can only recognize ur friend with Binoculars. It's very nice when u are sneaking night to behind ur friend or enemy then u have to check with binoculars is it friend or enemy. u know when u see urself from pda u should also see ur friend that are added as friends ./

btw without headphones it's Pretty unrealistic when u can only see from which direction people shoot there should be some sort of minimap system that show Pretty much from which direction voice came. :/

The weapon is the Mosin Nagant, a bolt action rifle, I'm pretty sure it was fixed in the latest available patch so that it shows the weapon's icon.

I'm not sure, but there is a bug that when you check dead mutants inventory they change from enemy to frindly and vica versa, but that shouldn't be a problem when they are alive.

The weapon I have no idea.

There is also a bug reporting at the forum for this mod so it would be smart to look for answers in the forum and post their problems on the forum too.

got the acog to work with the m4, but still not on the m16. also i cant mount the pso-1 scope on the mosin. this in very minor though. what i would like to know is if there is a way to activate all the rest of the arsenal weapons and to have them available?

Nothing mounts to the Mosin, that was human error with the guy in charge of descriptions.

In order to enable all arsenal weapons at traders, you have to look up how to modify trader files.

If any important person dies so you can't progress the main quest I belive you can just buy the information from the trader you first meet(Sidovrich or something, I don't remember).

So, what can I do to continue the main quest? Just go to Strelok-stash and it'll update?

if Seriy dies, just continue to Agroprom, it'll fix itself out there.

If Guide dies, you can go to Sidorovich when you get to that part of the main quest to continue. Ask him if he sells any information and you'll have to pay about 15,000 RU I think.

I really don't think it should HAVE to be like this though.

Ah crap I forgot about that quest, I don't know, I guess you could try to continue your game and see how far it gets. I haven't ran into any issues yet (other than Seriy being dead), and I'm heading into X18 for the quest the barman gives you.
