This patch is for the latest public release of RCOM, which is currently v1.0.6 Beta.
RCOM or 'Realistic' 'Combat' 'Overhaul' 'Mod' is a mod for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat that aims to bring in a greater emphasis on realism. Additionally porting most of the 'Clear sky' levels to 'Call of Pripyat'. These levels are being filled with new content, NPC's, Dialogues and Quests.
Rcom will also have extended support for mods like Atmosfear 3. So you can customize the game to your own personal preferences.
It's been a while since the last RCOM update, so here's a quick one!
I (MacBradley) have been taking some time off of RCOM work for the past 4-6 weeks.
I needed a break because real life always takes a priority, and this mod is something for my freetime when I have it and willing to use it. I took a break, and now I'm back to working on RCOM. :)
While on my hiatus, the rest of the 828_Studio team has been working hard on both RCOM and FF:CS both! They are working on various weapon models, textures, UI, ect. Eventually you'll hear more about specifically what they've been working on, but I'll leave announcements on that front up to them.
Before taking a break, the largest of many current RCOM tasks I was working on.
Placing and testing all of the alife "smart terrains", which are what dictates what possible jobs stalkers have at what places. I just picked up work on this again, and it the whole RCOM zone is almost entirely finished being filled with a-life simulation smart terrains. The PDA screenshots at the end of this update shown below are a demonstration of this.
Many smaller tasks have been done as well.
Weapon recoil has been reworked across all weapons, possible via some great scripting ideas from Rulix (his work is found in pretty much every major STALKER mod compilation) of the Russian STALKER modding community. The difference is subtle, but each gun really gets a bit more a unique "feel" to it with the new recoil system additions.
Aludaio's AI work will be included for the next RCOM release.
He has done some awesome work with STALKER AI, which will be detailed more specifically later.
Highest Rated (3 agree) 10/10
Very good Mod, realistic just like i want my game to be. May be too punishing, but nothing constant saving can't fix. Gave it a 10/10 Great work.
