Full concept modification of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat that touches every game aspect including textures, sfx, music, weapons, AI, items, weather difficulty and much more.
I just created an Account just to say this was one of the first Game/Mod that I was completely excited about. I really love what you have done. I love that you even took the time to adjust what is in the stashes to make sure its not too easy. I love the atmosphere. As you know there are some things that could be adjusted and I'm sure there will be a patch to adjust them accordingly. Thanks you for your time and effort. If you want to be apart of the gaming creating community then I hope someone recognizes your hard work and your focus to see a vision through.
For everyone with the CTD's and XRay crashes. I was experiencing them as well. I did everything I could to troubleshoot the issue but nothing worked. What I did to make it run like a dream was to UN-INSTALL everything. Because I have modded CoP before I couldn't even use the uninstaller and had to use Revo Uninstaller. This removed all traces of the Mods and Cop from the registry as well. The problem was that the previous mods left behind little incompatible traces that conflicted with XRay. I hope this helps.
One of the issues I've had with STALKER in the passed, is that the game was only difficult in the beginning. Once you learned how to fight fast, lean, aim down iron sights and got some good armor... the game got easy. You always found alot of weapons and extra items off everyone allowing you to hold quite a few stuff (even with the realistic weight and carrying capacity) if the other things you carry are only the bare essentials.. you could end up making alot of money after a few hours of gameplay. That just didn't make much sense.
This mod ends up making NPC's pay you less when you sell them stuff, damaged weapons can't be sold and in general its more rare to find enemies with sidearms or other items (rather than all the time like before).
The mod does so much more to make the game alot more survival based game like it should have been.
This is what it'd be like to live in the zone. Very few STALKER mods come close to the feelings this mod gives me. The new arsenal, new sound design, new textures, everything gels together in a wonderfully fluid and complete way, with stability as an added bonus. I have the utmost respect for the Misery Team and TrueZoneProjects as a whole. Any new TZP mod that comes out will be getting a download from me.
This is definitely the best existing modification for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat. It pretty much perfects the atmosphere of the Zone in both the look, and the challenges one would face inside of it.
Very well done, though it could use some minor tweaking. The PSO-1 scope's reticle is incorrect (it was actually accurate in the unmodded game) and too hard to see, weapon stats & scope zooms could be made more authentic, and I think stamina should be improved slightly when over-encumbered and running (not sprinting), since you get exhausted after just a few steps.
Also, night vision is not nearly effective enough. Nevertheless, this modification is a must have for CoP.
