The envisionment of TK is to bring you what was promised by GSC for STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, instead of the gutted retail release we were left with. TK aims to cover every aspect imaginable from gameplay intended to genuinely scare the player, to graphics for the absolute best visual experience, cut mutants, absolute realism, optimisations, stability, and a complete game mechanics overhaul, all without breaking the story. The idea is to present the player with a complete retail experience for the purist that liked SoC but wished it was far more fleshed out. In no way what so ever does TK try to be like old beta or alpha builds of SoC, TK aims to enhance everything SoC already has - nothing more, nothing less.

8 comments by ketxxx on Mar 4th, 2015

My spidey senses are tingling, seems like a fair few people are checking TKs mod page lately so I'm guessing thats down to wanting to know whats going on with the final build of TK. No need to wait any longer, heres whats going on.

The final TK build is playtester ready, but theres a few aspects that are needing to be finished and integrated so I'm using that time to upgrade some of the shader visual features. Is there anything with the final build I toyed with adding but won't make the final build? Of course, just like any development cycle different ideas are tried out and some things just don't make it to the final build. I am happy to say however that those cut ideas are very few and very far between. Perhaps someone will want to make a addon for TK putting the few things I've decided to leave out in, who knows, I have built TK with the intentions that others might want to take it as a solid base to expand upon after all.

So with that said by the time the playtesters get to put the final build through its paces (which if everything goes to schedule will be about this coming Monday) these will be the things that will still need to be finished;

- Add rewritten story & character profiles (crimson)
- Add blowouts

Everything else will be in place, new main menu and all (d4v33edz). Which means as soon as the story and characters are done along with the blowouts being implemented and tested the final build will at that time be given a public release.

The finish line is in sight now guys ;)

Mods are technically illegal to get profits from because you are technically selling other author's works without their permission and you aren't also getting the cash to them and such. Mods are always going to be free, unless the person is a greedy little shithead.

Nothing. Since when has anyone charged for a mod? Oh right... *cough* Ubisoft, EA, Activision... //insert whatever game publisher or dev you want here..// I absolutely hate the current trend of empty games *cough* Destiny, Evolve, etc being sold as full games then slapping the gamer in the face like those games and others do with massess of DLC they want money for. "DLC", 95% of the time is just content the game should of had in it anyway IMO. Look at Mass Effect 3 and Javik, for one example among many. TK will be filled with as much content as possible thats practical for the size of Vanilla SoC while being well balanced. It'll be released for FREE when its ready :) I'm working on the final technical points now while the team of playtesters puts the build they have through its paces to catch any bugs and while another member works on fleshing out the story in numerous ways.

The playtesters will soon be putting a new build through its paces, with the exception of the blowouts and some new shader features its just a case of crossing the T's and dotting the I's now. Thats all I can really say at this point as I'm not sure how much time I'm going to have but theres certainly not a whole lot left to do.
