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 'Clear sky' Levels to 'Call of Pripyat' which have been filled with new A-Life and content.
RCOM uses a script that randomly assigns weapons to NPCs, but within certain constraints and influenced weights. What this means, is that NPC's will not have pre-defined load-outs when the game starts. Instead, they will be given their weapons and items with a certain probability that is also influenced by:
- NPC Faction
- NPC Rank
- Random Influence
This system allows for every STALKER to have a unique load-out, and every player to have a different set of NPC's compared to another player.
Also, issues of a completely random load-out system (ex: first novice stalker you find has same chance as a Master Merc to have an FN2000) are avoided using the weight system.
