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.

Armor Penetration Overhaul

I have yet to see a CoP mod that has an armor system that reflects the actual NIJ level classifications, so I've been hard at work on one!

Damage is very heavy to the actor and NPC's. Armor ranges from class IIa armor to class V. If you try to shoot soft tipped bullet's into a high enough class armor, you're not going to kill an enemy. There's a progressive scale that mimics something much more like real life than what is in vanilla stalker.

Most armors come with just torso armor, or torso and head. Upgrades will allow for armom plates to be added to other areas of the body.

Now a picture, so you know I'm actually still working on the game again!!


PS: I need a few beta testers soon. Send me a PM if you're interested :-)

To answer your questions...

1. Currently plans are you can not join factions in RCOM.
2. There are no plans for new mutant models, but there are some "legendary" mutants being added.
3. The Renegade faction is purely hostile.
4. Its hard to give approximate release date, because there's assorted modders working on RCOM, and one's modding time can be unpredictable.
5. The difficulty is going to be similar to RCOM v.1.0.6 in combat, but the economy is being reworked to be more difficult and give more of a scavenging feel to the game. Lower difficulties are also being tweaked to be balanced as well, for those who find RCOM too tedious on master.

You can't until the next version is released. Current releases don't include additional maps.

MacBradley I love your mod man, just what I wanted to play. But can you help me with something: I just want to use the weapon part of this mod (realistic balistics etc), but I can seem to make it work for me. Can you tell me please how to remove the new AI, interface etc? I hope you don't take offense, I really enjoyed your full modification, but I want to replay it again in another style. THANK YOU!

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.
