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.
Hey Artistpavel, just applied the mod - a bit late I know lol but thought I'd just say it's absolutely wonderful. I appreciate all the work you and your fellow modders put into this. Definitely improved the whole experience of the game - finished it playing vanilla and just started again with the complete 2009, right from the get go you can tell the difference. Thanks a lot!!
Out of all the mods ive played, this by far has made the most significance. It made STALKER SOC what it should have been when it was released. The new music is perfect, and adds to the immersion of actually being in the zone.
The only thing lacking is support for multi-core cpus. Quad core owners will see their first core at 100%, second core at 30% and the 3rd and 4th cores at idle. The graphics upgrade causes slow loading times and in-game stuttering because the game was not optimized for 2 or more cores.
