There are those who think that we are fools for not having released version 2.0 back in late 2012. Personally I can't see it any other way than what we've been revealing the past few months are worth the wait. Keep in mind that majority of gameplay elements require a new game start once developed. And to date we are still finishing up on several already mentioned elements that we see as obligatory content of version 2.0.

And there are those who totally agree with the way you have managed MISERY.
Fools? Not a chance. If people can't wait patiently that is their problem.

Wonderful. Exactly what this game needs, enemies are way too smart in unfair ways, always knowing where you are as soon as they are alerted.

How will you be presenting this information to the player? I don't mean by using HUD indicators - that would likely make things too easy; rather, I mean aurally (audio-wise). Different materials will occlude sound in different ways - such as the wooden door example already given. What about concrete? Stone? Metal?... Also, some materials echo sound better than others.

In my mind, letting the audio be affected by walls and their materials would add greatly to both the stealth and (perhaps) suspense elements in the game. For example, what if the player is walking down a corridor in some old bunker, and a monster following the player undetected knocks down a container? That might echo through the hallway, letting the player know they're being followed - if not also giving the a scare.

Sounds really perfect. I can't wait to get my recon class now! But just one question : now there's a utility to get a suppressed makarov instead of a Colt : ok but... We'll be able to 1 Headshot = death with this little makarov? Cause I would use the Colt to get the assurance of 1 shot in head my ennemy. One of the thing I hate in Stalker is emptying my Colt 1911 in the head of a guy and just because he has an helmet : 5 rounds are not enough...

You guys just keep amazing us. I think the people are fools for thinking your dev team are fools for not releasing in 2012. This is why so many games are crap. They develop to a time and not a standard, whereas your team cares about the product that is being released. Kudos.

Make sure you take into account the muzzle velocity of the bullet rather than its size. That's what will make the key difference in sound when firing suppressed.

9mm Makarov is not more silent than a .45 acp their muzzle velocitys are allmost the same (depending on the bullet weight).

Just to make it clear, the fog make visibility reduced for NPC ? I though I read a post from Alundaio saying that he wouldn't waste time doing this, am I wrong? Please, tell me I'm wrong, because this is so, so awesome!

With all this, the recon class is useful now! I wanted to play it so hard, but stealth in vanila STALKER is terrible.

"night patrol teams" ? :o

Yep - situation with fog changed as we've found a technical way to actually make it count a lot (custom scripting by alun had be involved for this as vanilla didn't offer any good solution).

As for general a-life overview and types of squads, locations and overall degree of tweaks refer here:

This is it. This is what I was waiting for. I can finally put the Recon class to good use as it always bothered me that stealth was definitely S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise's weak side. This is going to change the gameplay so much! Thank you for this awesome mod.

Yep. .45 is really easy to silence, because of its slow movement.
And it kicks like a hammer.

harry80 Jan 25 2013 replied:

9mm Luger or 9x19mm is much faster than .45 acp but 9mm Makarov or 9x18 is about 315 m/s so its still subsonic.

Anarcieath Jan 25 2013 says:

Holy ****, this is the best update I've seen so far. I can't tell you how many times I got ****** off sneaking by some people only to have them turn around and light me up where I knew I should've been next to impossible to see, behind bushes or in the shadows of a building. I'm hoping thunder can mask shots too, would be nice taking people out without being instantly spotted after my first shot. But what about mutants though?? I assume they have heightened senses that make it easier for them to track prey, how is heavy fog and rain gonna affect them??

Alundaio Jan 25 2013 replied:

Mutants did have their "senses" increased but they are not affected by these changes. Mutant A-life in STALKER works somewhat differently then Stalkers. They are pretty generic and I have no plans to do much with them which hasn't already been done.

From the sound of it i can fianlly sneak into the mercenary camp and kill everybody stealthly. I remember shooting one guy not being noticed. Then i sneaked up and tried killing a second guy with a pistol and i was noticed, i then tried using my knife and still they used their "hive" mind to tell the rest of the base of not just me being there but my exact location.

Alundaio Jan 28 2013 replied:

If you are talking about the Water Processing Plant they are actually scripted to "find" the actor if one is alerted. Pretty stupid since it's a stealth mission. I corrected this. This entire area has been enhanced for stealth. It would be wise to examine the area from a safe distance with binoculars to plan your mission beforehand.

Keep in mind it's hard coded that if you enter combat with a stalker his entire squad will enter combat. Killing NPCs before you are in combat with them or triggering their alert mode without being spotted will not trigger this effect.

It's actually easier to get detected if you are noisy, but if you are quiet and choose where and when to kill your enemy you can successfully stealth. Weather, positioning and time-of-day all effect stealth.

I just have to say, a properly suppressed .45ACP is absurdly quiet. Its quite possible to fire a MAC-10 on full auto with its suppressor with no ear protection actually, and the only chatter heard is from the bolt slamming around from firing off 1000rpm.

I just hope Misery introduces a system where the enemy NPCs won't be able to see/shoot right through thick bushes of grass and such, got so tired of them being able to shoot and see me right through heavy bushes whereas I couldn't see a damn thing thanks to those annoying bushes, seriously... DX
