TK build 3-10-12 complete update 3, see description for full details.
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 texture replacements / enhancements for the absolute best visual experience, cut mutants, absolute realism, optimisations, stability, and a complete game mechanics overhaul - all without breaking the story. I want to deliver a mod which anyone who plays it will have their breath literally taken away by its sheer quality, attention to detail, and being the only mod players may well have to keep a spare pair of pants handy!
Thats right, I need help! Below is a list of current openings to assist in the development of TK, if you or somebody you know can help just leave a message on this news post along with what opening you can help in and I will drop you a PM :)
- Character modeller
Whats needed: Anyone who can use Maya or Max to edit existing NPC and mutant models in SoC, what needs doing isn't anything ground breaking or overly time consuming for anyone fluent in the use of Maya or Max I'd just like to have the character models meshes tidied up so they look more like the models in CS and CoP (in other words, no nasty sudden sharp edges on the character models). If the modeller happens to be talented at making textures and wants to retexture some models then I won't have any objections.
Whats needed: Anyone whos fluent in LUA, scripting is the one thing I suck at and I just don't have time to learn LUA with all the other things involved for putting TK together.
- Playtester (x2) - FILLED
Whats needed: Anyone whos got time to play through the upcoming internal RC build of TK to generally proof it to make sure there are no serious bugs I've missed. As a playtester you can collaborate with other playtesters I already have but you are not to leak the internal TK RC build as its internal for a reason - its a work in progress.
- Media creator
Whats needed: Anyone who is capable of putting some nice in-game videos together for the upcoming internal TK RC build, its just to save me some time so I can focus on the mod more :) Any media creator will have pretty much free roam on the videos, as long as its the RC build thats all that matters really.
- Story writer
Whats needed: Anyone with a good imagination and a slightly warped mentality :) I started expanding the vanilla story so things are pieced together more and to make the experience more engaging but theres definitely a lot more aspects that could be expanded. Only shackles on the story writer is that the story is simply to be expanded, not completely changed, knows how to open and edit XML files and that the writer understands the kind of dark atmosphere and gritty language needed - none of the PG pop crap.
Thats it folks, those are all the openings :)
