MISERY 2.2 Update

News 52 comments

WEAPONS & ARMOR DISMANTLING
You will no longer need to haul packs full of heavy damaged loot back to base. Using either improvised tools or highly specialized kits you will now be able break down weapons, armor, and even electronics into small and large parts, debris, fabric, etc. When you use a specialized kit you may be able to extract helmets, integrated or permanently attached scopes, etc. The parts, of course, can be sold.

More importantly they can be used to bring a looted weapon from zero condition all the way up to 100% enabling you to bring the highly damaged carcass you found of your favorite model shooter up to glistening pristine condition without spending all your hard earned cash. You can use the parts on the spot in the field to repair the battle wear before you even head back further reducing your load. You can fix up high end weapons you find with bits from lesser weapons and sell them for profit. Electronics in good or bad condition can be salvaged to recover the batteries within, or even components they were made from. Did you earn an outfit you don’t want or no longer need one you have because you upgraded? Break it down for valuable spare parts and toss the rest.

When you right click on a valid tool all the weapons/armor/electronics it is capable of dismantling appear in a window you choose your target and salvage the item. Not all tools are created equal. Some need to be sharpened before use, some may break, some you will never want to leave home without. Different tools provide different results. It’s your choice to break it down in the field with whatever you have at hand or bring it back to base to squeeze every drop of value from it. Some procedures require a helper tool to complete. You can still drag the weapons back and sell them without breaking them down. You decide, it’s your hard earned loot. The dismantling process isn’t just going to lighten your load and enable you to realistically scavenge useable parts from weapons many know often have common pieces. It will unload, remove the silencer, scope and grenade launcher for you as you dismantle. No more having to painfully check each weapon for precious bullets that might be the only thing enabling you to eat tomorrow.



Parts and debris can also be used as helper materials for other repair kits making them even more effective. All these wonderful features have to be programmed for each and every variation of every item in the game. All the tables have to be built, verified and tested. Probabilities for various combinations of factors like the tool used, original condition of the item, etc. all need to be written. When complete it will be quickly but thoroughly tested and any bugs fixed. Final balancing will be done before it will be yours to enjoy. As you can see, it really isn’t a feature you would want to leave out. The rest of the team are still fine tuning and polishing other new features to truly MISERY worthy levels while our coder is slaving away with only enough chain to let him reach his paying job once in a while.

If you wanted to go to extremes you could say that MISERY 2.2 has had a status of 98% completion for the last few months. But you don't put a car on the market without a steering wheel. And the steering wheel in this case is considered a core feature of the upcoming release, that just can't be pulled for technical reasons.

Lately, we have downscaled our promotion and teasing of the upcoming version because we understand the prolonged release of MISERY 2.2 feels unbearable and provocative to many followers.

On behalf of our beloved coder and the rest of the team we thank you for your understanding and patience. We will turn the ache of waiting into true MISERY soon enough.

Thanks again and best regards
Misery Development Ltd.

Pусский

Вам больше не придется таскать тяжелые кучи серьезно поврежденного хабара на базу. Использование либо подручных средств, либо специализированных наборов инструментов позволит вам разбирать оружие, броню, и даже электронику на малые и большие запчасти, обломки, обрывки и т.д.. При использовании специализированных наборов вы сможете извлекать шлемы, интегрированные или перманентно прикрепленные прицелы и т.д.. Части, конечно, можно продать.


Более важно то, что они могут быть использованы для доводки найденного оружия с нуля до 100%-ного состояния, позволяя тебе превратить найденный тобой сильно поврежденные останки твоего любимого оружия до состояния "новенькое, еще в масле" не тратя все с таким трудом заработанные деньги. Можно использовать запчасти для ремонта снаряжения прямо во время ходки, тем самым уменьшая вес, который придется нести на базу. Вы сможете чинить дорогостоящее оружие элементами более дешевых образцов вооружения, и продавать его с выгодой. Электроника в хорошем или плохом состоянии позволит восстановить батарейки, или даже элементы из которых она была сделана. Вы нашли броник которые не будете носить или старый вам больше не нужен? Разберите его на части, оставьте ценные и выбросьте остальные.


По щелчку правой кнопкой мыши по соответствующему инструменту все оружие, бронежилеты и электроника поддающиеся разборке появятся в окне, вы выбираете вашу цель и извлекаете ее. Не все инструменты сделаны равными. Некоторые требуют заточки перед использованием, некоторые могут сломаться, без некоторых вы не захотите выходить из дома. Разные инструменты дают разные результаты. Вам придется решать, разобрать все в сразу прямо в ходке, используя то что окажется под рукой, или дотащить все до базы чтобы вытащить все ценное до последнего винтика. Некоторые манипуляции потребуют вспомогательных инструментов. Вы по прежнему можете притащить оружие на базу и сбыть торговцу не разбирая. Это ваш хабар, вам и решать. Разборка снаряжения призвана не только облегчить вашу загрузку и позволить реалистично использовать годные части оружия, так как часто они общие для нескольких стволов. Это позволит разрядить, снять глушитель, прицел и гранатомет для вас, когда вы разбираете. Больше не будет болезненного тыканья в каждое оружие в поисках драгоценных патронов которые могут стать единственным, что позволит вам завтра поесть. Части и обломки так же могут быть использованы как вспомогательные материалы для других ремонтных комплектов, делая их более эффективными. Все эти замечательные возможности должны быть прописаны для каждого предмета и всех его вариаций во всей игре. Все таблицы должны быть составлены, проверены и протестированы. Возможности различных комбинаций факторов такие как использованный инструмент, исходное состояние предмета и т.д. все должно быть прописано. По завершению все будет быстро, но тщательно проверено и все ошибки будут исправлены. Окончательный баланс будет готов прежде, чем мы дадим Вам возможность его попробовать. Как можно увидеть, это действительно не та возможность, мимо которой стоит пройти мимо. Остальная часть команды все еще доделывает, настраивает и полирует другие новые возможности до уровня истинной MISERY, в то время как наш программист пашет как раб на цепи, позволяющей ему иногда сходить на оплачиваемую работу.


Строго говоря, можно сказать что готовность MISERY 2.2 последние несколько месяцев составляет 98%. Но вы не выставите в магазин автомобиль без руля. А руль в данном случае является ключевой особенностью предстоящего релиза, и это не позволяет его выпустить досрочно по техническим причинам. В последнее время вы уменьшили объемы анонсов и тизеров предстоящей версии потому что понимаем, что откладывание сроков выхода MISERY 2.2 для многих наших поклонников невыносимо. От имени нашего любимого программиста и остальной части команды мы благодарим вас за понимание и терпение. Мы превратим боль ожидания в настоящую MISERY достаточно скоро.

With Thanks to 6apcyk for the translation!

Hey Guys! According to the recently published screenshots, the note says these were created in 4k resolution using two 1080 cards in SLI. Does this mean, that 2.2 will fully support SLI? Did you make any code optimalizations to achieve that?

No. The lucky guy got a present right after he purchased one and couldn't let them go to waste, who would? :) SLI/Crossfire will help some, but there has been no miracle optimization of the engine. Using sun shadows and high grass detail murders performance, especially at that resolution. Some balance choices must be made between those awesome shadows and millions of blades of grass to find that sweet spot with the FPS you need.

Thanks for your response! To tell the truth, looking at the shots made using SLI configuration I begun to hope...:)) But no worries. By the time 2.2 comes out, there will be 1080 TI available (or even better cards as well). Keep up the nice work!

We did some careful comparisons between my single and his SLI 1080 config troubleshooting his higher temps. If you like the grass turned up (I don't) the load seems almost exponentially to rise with shadows enabled as you increase the grass density a notch. It's a hard choice to make.

To be fair. Once you install AN4 it goes way better. I only have a 650ti 2gb and can run it with maxed details and filters. Of course providing I hold back a bit on resolution. I get around 40-50 FPS at the ship, near flawless in the wild.

There might be no miracle but I got the feeling 2.2 is gonna feel like one.

AN4 replaced the troublesome FPS killing tree models which overall improves performance. Also a bad waypoint on the Pripyat map was discovered that made Strelok run the wrong route. This should also be fixed for 2.2. Due to the sheer size of the distribution, only the Misery color scheme will be included, but users should be able to choose one of the other 7 flavors as an add-on. I don't know which would be creepier with the new ambient music Bambi in the forest green or Misery drab. You have to be careful stopping to smell the wildflowers in the Zone.

Hey Jasper, sorry for being a little bit off topic, but I'd like to ask something. Many of us thought, that after the release of Cossacks 3 GSC will turn back to STALKER 2 (however, Cossacks 3 doesn't seem to fulfill developers' expectations due to critics). Do you think, that hopes for STALKER 2 are permanently have slipped away?

Cossacks was their bread and butter, so I expected they would push that out first. Along with everyone here I hope they have the resources and will to continue the series properly; not in a brotherhood of steel manner. The longer a project drags on, the more resources it requires. COP was probably released in a much less viable configuration than they desired. Maybe something like the pre-release alpha sandbox release would keep their income stream viable while they develop.

Perhaps they could also try a common fund like Kickstarter. They would get the money needed for STALKER 2 in no time...

I have seen startup games sell $20,000,000 worth of advance copies of their ALPHA. That's a lot of startup capital :)

So is the conclusion, that GSC is actually sitting on the treasure box, but they are too blind to open it...?

Survivor horror at it's finest, although slightly flawed. Once all the kinks are ironed out, this will be the definite Stalker: Call Of Pripyat mod.

Lowest Rated (141 agree) 3/10

With the intention of being realistic, it ends up feeling like its "overly" realistic, while some aspects make sense, others do not. The idea that a trained military sniper gets too tired to even move after WALKING about 100 yards, only carrying 10 pounds of equipment, seems silly to me. A normal person might get tired, but military personnel are trained to run for miles with much heavier equipment. The ai could still use work, their detection system is most certainly unrealistic and can be very…
