S.T.A.L.K.E.R .Rebalanced. v1.2

Is a global mod in a single complete package that aims to provide an evolutionary enhancement of the single most atmospheric game of 2007, if not ever, Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl. Almost all aspects of the gameplay have been re-balanced to be fair, fun, deadly and a redefinition of your ultimate Stalker experience.

What does all this mean for you?

This mod enhances the retail version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl through improved; graphics, sound, balance, AI/A-life, day/night weather, weapon ballistics, ragdolls, quests, trading, unique items, text/interaction, interactivity, artifacts, health & sleep system, options, hidden secrets and bug fixes. It's hard to explain, but now the game simply feels smooth, like it never has before.

This is a well refined and tested mod that the team has been developing and improving on in one form or another since Stalker's first release in 2007. Over that time many pages of user feedback have gone into polishing it's many builds and iterations with the last major release being out since January 2009 and the next build has undergone many more improvements, tweaks and implementations that have totally improved upon the end product since then.

You will not be disappointed with S.T.A.L.K.E.R .Rebalanced. v1.2 when it is released shortly, just check out the latest incredible screen shots below!

Stalker Rebalanced v1.2 Progress Report

Well don't just stand there, come in...

Stalker Rebalanced v1.2 is not dead, in fact it's progress is very promising. Their haven't been any updates for a while, so why now you maybe thinking...

Two reasons; 1. NatVac has released the new Zone Reclamation Project (ZRP) v1.07r5rc, which is light years ahead of ZRP v1.05, which was that last version to be integrated in Reb. This new version has so many bug fixes, feature improvements, anouyance removals and optimizations that it really was worth waiting for. Plus it also has more modding tools and detailed dev comments within it's files, which makes it much easier to integrate and tweak the features.

2. Meltac has released the amazing new Dynamic Shaders v2.0 CTP, which incorporates shader improvements ported from Clear Sky, Call of Pripyat and Crysis as well as many other features and graphical optimizations for SHoC. I was planning to showcase some screen shots working with Trojan's Stalker Weather Overhaul (SWO) v3.1.1, on which Reb's entire weather and environment system is based. But, the system demands of the new shaders are a bit much for my aging laptop now (I havn't upgraded since 2010!). So, I've been forced to work in the R1 Static Lighting renderer while integrating the ZRP and other changes. Once this is done, I will look to optimize these shaders and show case some screen shots in the coming weeks.

Things are looking good. As well as these anticipated improvements highlighted above; Stalker Rebalanced v1.2's focus will always remain on the evolution of gameplay, and the balance of progression through the storyline aspects that have always been the staple of this global mod project.

Please feel free to follow the mod's progress on the main GSC Game World forum thread.

Alrighty, talk to you...

yes that is the current version of this mod. being version 1.05. Team Rebalanced is currently working on v1.2 of the mod, which will be much more advanced than v1.05. also, if you do install v1.05 while you wait for the newer version, then make sure to grab the v1.05.3 patch too.

links are on the very 1st post in this thread.

Like most overhaul mods that muck around with scripts, this mod is broken. I installed 1.05 and the 1.5.03 patch, making it the latest build and while Nimble now hangs around under the bridge near where you heal him at the start of the game, the mod says Fox is wounded and is being attacked by Mutants at the army base!

It took a long time to clear the base, and there was no Fox, but there is a fireproof container with Strelock info. Without Fox, the main quest cannot be continued, and there is no mention in the readme of this fireproof container you find at the army base and how to access it or who to give it to,

This is a known bug. there is a work around for it in the v1.2 build (not yet released). Fox is still in his usual place north of the rail bridge.

The container you can give to Trader, after returning from the Dark Valley story line mission.
