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 :-)

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!

Still can't wait for final release.
Got a problem though.
I tried merging Atmosfear 3 with this mod (because the game would crash during loading) but now the game freezes up everytime a NPC near me enters combat mode (stalke/bandit skirmishes etc).

Can any1 point me in to the right direction as how to solve this?

Hi Brad, I'm really enjoying RCOM right now, but I've encountered an extremely irritating set of bugs. (Keep in mind I like to lightly modify games to my personal liking)The first one below was after I added a damage value to one of the Desert Eagle's upgrades (just one of the .50AE conversion, not all of them, so that might be the problem):

Error Reason:
xrEngine.exe caused BREAKPOINT in module "e:\steam\steamapps\common\stalker call of pripyat\bin\xrCore.dll" at 0023:006DE12E, xrDebug::backend()+174 byte(s)

User Message:
Expression : fatal error
Function : CInifile::r_section
File : D:\prog_repository \sources\trunk\xrCore\Xr_ini.cpp
Line : 502
Description : <no expression>
Arguments : Can't open section 'ammo_12.7×33mm_AE'. Please attach [*.ini_log] file to your bug report

This next one keeps reappearing after I removed the damage value. I also tried moving the default upgrade file back and removing the ability for the gun to be upgraded, and both times still the same thing:

Error Reason:
xrEngine.exe caused ACCESS_VIOLATION in module "e:\steam\steamapps\common\stalker call of pripyat\bin\xrGame.dll" at 0023:078EF4EB, CDialogHolder::CDialogHolder()+101307 byte(s)

In the future, its a little easier to answer bug issues in the bug section of the forums, but I'll do it here for you since you already posted a comment for it. :)

For the first crash, make sure you have the "RCOM v1.0.6 Beta Patch 1" installed before tweaking any values. Beyond that, you'll have to find the text string the report mentioned ("ammo_12.7×33mm_AE") and replace it with the proper one, which should be "ammo_12.7×33_ae" instead.

For the second crash, the "DialogHolder" crash, it is hard to say what the issue is. That usually means a typo or error in an xml or ltx config file. You'll just have to find the typo by going over what you changed again.

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.
