Paradise Lost (commonly abbreviated PL; also known as Paradise Lost modification, and Paradise Lost mod; full name: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow Of Chernobyl - Paradise Lost modification) - a modification for the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl, developing since 2007, based on the recovery of content that is not ranked to the final game.

The main purpose of Paradise Lost modification is to approach the game "S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl" for such a model, which is shown by the developers GSC Game World for the age since 2002 to 2005 years - that is a kind of returning of all the interesting things that were lost in the release, but remains on the old screenshots, trailers, "the finalcounts", articles in many gaming magazines - everything that can now be seen in the assemblies of the process of the game development (builds), which, fortunately, are available for download. So the purpose of this modification is to embody all the best from the builds in the final version of the game: visual style, graphics and its unique features (DX8 and DX9), behavior of NPCs, some plot points, and so much more...

Today, all English-speaking fans of Paradise Lost Mod - a holiday!
We are pleased to finally present to you the english version of the modification.

I would like to make a small digression: if on the eve of 5 years of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl, Ruwar (assistant in the development of modification) is not offered in the original theme of mod the Russian-speaking forum to create a page Paradise Lost on Moddb, then perhaps you would not soon, if ever learned about mod, and did not get in the end the English version of the mod.

Most Russian texts of mod translated into English: dancer893
Texts in-game news mod, build english version of mod, and other small things, had: Earthworm-Jim

Now, regarding the content of the modification. She got used some changes. Mod is a version 4.3.1 Beta, consisting of version 4.00 (January 2, 2012), and set on top of Update 3.1 (27 December 2012).
Here are just some of the innovations Update 3.1:

Was adapted marking in PDA from "R.M.A. Shadows Addon 0.6".

And now I would like to talk about plans for the further development of Paradise Lost Mod.
They are all the same: the restoration of content that is not ranked in the final game.
Until recently was being developed in terms of the reconstruction of the old locations and monsters, and continuously work on improving and fine-tuning the current graphics modifications to the kind we saw in 2002-2005.
For more information: Moddb.com
Also been done in terms of the reconstruction of the old gameplay chips, such as communicating with the NPC on PDA.

However, in its last report Scavenger (main developer of mod) states that: "In recent times with work and personal life, time and effort to develop modifications are sorely lacking. But do not expect the news to the name - Paradise Lost is adjourned. On the other hand, news about what is global while also not expected".

We hasten to reassure you, mod is not frozen! Forces assistants developer, we will soon release a new Update with new innovations and corrections. But as said, Scavenger, can not wait for something global.

In other news:
In twitter was created official page of Paradise Lost Mod: Twitter.com
In it, you can follow all the news of the development of the modification.

Also now we have the official e-mail: paradiselostmod@gmail.com

More on moddb we opened the forum: Moddb.com
In their respective categories you can discuss any part or all of the modifications in general, or ask your question on the technical part. By the way, we will be FAQ, so as not to answer the same questions.

That's it!

But remember, this is not the final version of the game, and a beta version, designed for open testing the current version of the modification.

I don't get why this won't work! I put the files in the mods folder easy as pie but the game won't recognize it, it just starts up vanilla STALKER! What the heck is going on? I'm using the GOG version 1.0006.

I have to say this...
The mod its just... AMAZING!!!
i can't believe how amazing is this!
the colours , the weapons , npc's , tasks , the new features (belt , sleep ,etc)
The optimization (Playing with an old 8800gt 60fps+)
It feels like im playing a finished Beta build from the game.
VERY VERY stable! (as a beta , its 75% stable)
The translation its not the best , but i can understand everything!
(I speak Spanish)
i must say... this mod has a lot of future , Thanks to all of you guys!
Goodluck With Everything!
