Global mod for STALKER SHoC, intended to recreate a highly atmospheric Zone with highest possible quality, stability of the game, rich gameplay and loyalty to the canons of the Sci-Fi genre. The upcoming 0.6.9.3 version will be first available in english translation. Current version is 0.6.9.2 R2 - you can get it in the downloads section.
9/10 - Looks beautiful and creates something never done before
I have played up until Rostok, more info will be applied later.
Configurable options and advanced gfx
Fantastic new graphics
Wide range of weapons, items and armour
New quests, and quest bug fixes
Balanced artifacts and medicine
New ammo types
New icons make the game a real masterpiece
No CTDs (atleast not yet)
Bloodsuckers can be killed while in cloak (yes!)
Iron sights for all weapons have been perfected unlike many mods around
Rad tablets etc need fluid to use, otherwise you die, this makes no sense at all, you don't need fluid its just easier to swallow that way. A game that focuses on survival cannot use up all his water;)
Shotguns used to be the prime of killing mutants, but due to their high health, you need to offload 10 shots into a single fleshy just to kill it...
Medkits are scarce and don't restore as much health as the vanilla game.
The mutants that spawned in Agroprom underground was kind of overkill, 3 bloodsuckers and 2 controllers.
The screen blood around the edges is really annoying, but I guess you need it due to no health bar.
The auto-turrets in military occupied areas are just stupid and annoying, it defys the lore of the game. The military were meant to be unorganised and not up to date.
This is the best stalker mod i've had the plesure of playing,it feels like your playing stalker for the first time.The combat Ai of this mod is deadly, way above any thing else i have come across in any other mod,it has a dynamic Ai life that actualy works,it's remarkably stable,belive it or not my first play session was over 34 hours with only one ctd!.But for me the combat Ai seals the deal for me on this mod,you will be playing this for a long time!.An excellent mod.10/10
Have finished the main plot.
Very nice ending with destroying the c-consciousness.
Mod is awesome. Many great ideas. The introduction mod with the Stone Blood effect motivates the player.
And I very like the Dynamic gloss factor changing during rain. Adds immersion. The turning into a Zombie makes the game more interesting.
Psi zones, Horror time and the many configurable setting via OGSE launcher are simply amazing.
In short, this Mod is quality. I had under 10 crashes during complete playthrough. Plus the two crashes with Ghost and Kruglov.
Very good job. 10/10
Good mod, but the last relase version is so boring after many years. + until stable 0692 version was relased I played some earlier versions (from 0684), which were pretty bugful. I only got to ChNPP in v.069 and dropped this mod. I played 0692 only to Pripyat and was bored again :(
The gameplay additions are nice, but there are problems with performance.
Replacement of ENV sounds is not always cool. I prefer to stay with default SoC's.
Weapons are lealistic, but "feel strange" in hands. Also some new useless items (tonns of food), new weapons' visuals and other "new content" a little moves this mod into "modpack" genre.
I'm waiting for 0693 and hope it will have some new and really important content, not replacing stuff by stuff.
