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.

Report article RSS Feed All new rain & water splash / ripple effects

This video shows completely remade rain and water splash / ripple effects replacing the lame vanilla rain and water splashes.

I'm not sure if this will really be captured properly even in a video. This video shows completely remade rain and water splash / ripple effects replacing the lame vanilla rain and water splashes. Sadly, until now, nobody has really bothered making nice rain and water splash / ripple effects. This is proof that even a "ugly chick", when dressed up in her finest, CAN look hot. No beers required. ;p

I watched the 720 version on you tube and liked the effect but it would of helped if you had put your lamp on so we could see it better. It looked good within the limits of what could be seen but as I said it was a little too dark for me to be able to get a proper look. I would of liked to have been able to see it properly so I could see how close you've got it to the DX11 (10) look.

I made new rain effects :( no one noticed.

And turn both your hemi, ambient and normal lightning up. With the R2 commands ;) It will be easier capturing stuff then :)

I never mess with settings I've finely balanced, it just makes the effect you are trying to show look "wrong". TK is all for realism and making everything look natural to the point of you feel like you could be standing there, not just looking at something on your screen. In my case I have no problems at all seeing the rain and water splash / ripple effects but many people unbeknown to them have completely wrong gamma/contrast/brightness & RGB settings on their monitor, which is why I wasn't sure if the video would show the effects off properly. Maybe its just me, but youtube also seems to of borked up the quality of the HD video.
