Runs good when installed right. Best running mega mod I know of.
All saves work good, and can be trusted. The adventure almost
never ends. I have read that it runs much better than Stalkersoup.
Doesn't require a high end machine, runs fine on less than a midline pc.

Everything works nicely from what I'm able to gather after playing a couple of hours. The only thing is - it takes ages to load, but that is the case for every NS version, from what I've read.

Early game is a bit of a train wreck, but afterwards it seems to even out. Read the guide, and ask for help, the devs are very friendly and willing to give you some pointers if you ask.

I picked a great day to comeback and revisit this classic gem of a mod.

Some of my fondest memories are of this mods original inception. Found it through gsc game world forums mod discussion section way back in the day.

Took my sweet time installing this mod, making sure everything was right. Installing something like this is a labor of love. If done right you reap the rewards of one of the greatest mods to ever grace SHoC. Grabbed all the extra files I wanted Translation project, Zone ENB, smaller grids sizes, faster loading, optimized textures etc.

I must say this... this is really something else, mod loading times are way faster than I remember lol. Game looks stunning and not a hiccup in sight. Not one CTD in a 8+ hour game session.

To the creators that uploaded this mod to ModDB and keep updating it with fixes etc. My sincerest thanks, for bringing this mod to new players /or old vets looking for something new to experience.

Anxiously looking forward to what else you will add to this mod in the near future, thanks again!

Narodnaya Solyanka: DMX DKZ is a good mod for any players looking for a total conversion mod within the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. world, but would prefer a good challenge, as well as a different experience then the original gameplay, or most of the other S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mods.

Narodnaya Solyanka: DMX DKZ is not going to be a well-suited mod for people looking for semi-vanilla gameplay since Narodnaya Solyanka: DMX DKZ has on-rails gameplay. Narodnaya Solyanka: DMX DKZ will force you to consult a guide that is unfriendly to non-Russian players, which is something most other S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mods rarely force their player to do. Narodnaya Solyanka: DMX DKZ does not follow the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. meta to the point new characters, and parts of the plot are changed in significant ways frequently. Expect new items that may not function well, and textures that have been purposely reduced for lower end machines.

The main problems I had with Narodnaya Solyanka: DMX DKZ is that I feel too much of the meta gameplay which made the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games so great was too heavily modified. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series and most of it's mods follow a similar forumla that will often keep players on their toes since the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. world is naturally very hazardous which can often cause S.T.A.L.K.E.R. players to make quick decisions based on their own good judgement which allows the players to find a solution to a problem they face in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. based on their own choices. Narodnaya Solyanka: DMX DKZ completely changes this forumla by forcing the player to either cheat, or accept unflexable gameplay changes.

Balanced gameplay, nice visuals that don't ruin the original feel of SoC and most importantly lots of new content. Helpful mod creators that usually respond quickly to comments and complains of user's.

Similar to what is now called STALKERSOUP in terms of story and gameplay options. However this mod seems to be more stable and not very difficult to run properly. Great Audio as well.

Since the addition of Chevyfreaks A.R.M.mod coupled with the new 2 part version of N.S. DMX.DKZ,this mod has become one of the most in depth story driven versions of Stalker,it has many maps,some new,many new weapons and more than enough useful NPCs to keep you busy in the Zone for a year.
