If you haven’t played 2007’s most immersive and atmospheric shooter, or you’re back for replay, this mod is for you. This is the world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. like you’ve never seen before, with updated graphics and added functionality that don’t change the original story or gameplay. The game hasn’t been changed beyond recognition, but rather enhanced while preserving the core elements that made it the unique experience it is.
Once you get the mod to work, anything holding Shadow of Chernobyl back will be alleviated, Bugs are fixed, graphics are improved, and Shadow of Chernobyl now feels like a complete experience. This is THE improvement mod for Stalker. Anyone would be a fool to not download Stalker complete.
A definite 10 mod. Anyone who says otherwise is out of their mind. I would say the graphics have improved by an order of magnitude compared to the original game. The original bugs have been cleaned up dramatically, and the user interface is more streamlined. If you pair this with "SC Realistic Weapons add-on 0.8" (in the downloads section) the overall game play is much more enjoyable. You need to play on MASTER skill though or it becomes too easy! All of a sudden you no longer need to empty 2 clips into a guy wearing a leather jacket to kill him. However it doesn't make it easier because you need to be a lot more careful on MASTER skill where getting hit once or twice could be the end. I've found leaning and the dual crouch modes to be super useful now that a few bullets will kill you. I've already had a few epic pistol battles with the AI that had me using the same tactics I would in paintball.
This is how STALKER should have been released. I can't thank the creators of the mod enough because they must have spent some serious time creating this. Game studios should be hiring you guys as consultants!

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like STALKER Complete 2009 (2012). We love games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
