With some help of drugs, lack of sleep, and friend who checked it on other PC, you can now download second version of mod, that I tested on clean installations of most popular mods. All work perfectly, so if anyone have problems, sorry, I cant really help, because I did what I could, I checked all thm files, all textures, everything work. If you have crash after installation... life is brutal, you need to make sure that you dont have any other mod that can mess up game and you have enough juice in PC to not get OoM crash.

Fire under a bridgeNew morning in Rostok

I decided to release this version now, ditching installer, and few unfinished texture because more and more people started to use it in other games than default CoP and CoC. I never give 100% working guarantee for other mods beside those two, and I still dont give it, but again I tested those textures in most of popular mods and they work... If you have problem with crashes after installing those mods, dont blame me, I tested this specific zip file with those mods:

  • Call of Pripyat - Work perfectly(main texture pack + grass for CoP)
  • Clear Sky - Work Perfectly(main texture pack + grass for CoC)
  • Call of Chernobyl 1.4.22 - Work perfectly(main texture pack + grass for CoC)
  • Call of Chernobyl 1.5R6 - Work perfectly(main texture pack + grass for CoC)
  • Misery2.2 - Work, but Misery suck, so you can encounter OoM crashes(main texture pack + grass for CoP)
  • Call of Misery - Work Perfectly(main texture pack + grass for CoM)
  • sgm 2.2 - Work Perfectly(main texture pack + grass for CoC)

Stalker Two-K - Second Release



Right now I had to totally change my plans regarding this mod, I cant really spend as much time as I want. I have other projects do make, new job that is killing me due to hours and crappy pay I get.

But it doesnt mean that I cancel that mod. No, im still making new textures, but that work will be stretched to longer time with less updates.

I had in mind to release one update per month with about 40-60 new textures so I would finish remaking all important texture of game before end of the year, and then focus on vehicles and smaller stuff(decals signs etc), so Stalker would have full texture remake ready to use by other devs and players.

Stalker Two-K - Time For Bed KidsNew Rubble and Trash Textures

But right now I give up with that plan(not mod it self). Maybe its not big mod like Radium or Ray of Hope, but I think remaking almost 1200 texture alone is enough to call it big modification. Not to mention that if you look at any asset store or site that sell textures, you will realize that such texture pack would cost you LOTS of money, and even if textures are not perfect, they have enough quality to be at least "good". I was also a bit disappointed by ungrateful people, and I dont mean moddb community(mod is also available in different places). And its not actually only about my mod, Its about whole Stalker community and other mods. In any other game, you can get proper support donations and suggestions, and stalker mods... you can see that there is more complaining and crying than actual support. You spend free time giving people something, and they can PM you complaining that they dont like name, specific file or even fricking screenshoot(seriously few people complained that I didnt give bigger screenshoots)...

But hey, no one is perfect, life is brutal, and for past month I got so much donations that I cant even buy coffee :D Its hilarious that players can donate for few crappy textures for Minecraft or CS, but I, and any other Stalker dev here, cant get even 5$ for coffee -_-

Of course Donations are not related to mod it self, its just to put smile on my face and buy coffee that keep me awake at night when Im doing things, but for now I have gathered less than 3$ so I cant really afford any coffee in nearest bar :D

yeah it is, AN deal with natural objects(trees, foliage) AF3 is more of weather mod, Arsenal Overhaul is gun mod na HUD is HUD.

This mode, beside grass and few ground textures deal with man-made objects.
It replace lots of textures of buildings, walls, floors and other smaller objects.
It doesnt even need new game to work...

Yes, but why do You even ask? This great mod contains hundreds of handsome textures in 2048x2048 resolution only (It has some great fx effects and very high quality grass, but these are optional. And should be compatible too). It's 100% compatible.

Would love to see your take on better quality skyboxes/night skies for this mod.

Congrats on the new job!

Funny because I tried that 3 years ago :D

But there just no nice big res sky textures for free use(and paid where too expensive), I tried to make my own but I had that luck where sky was just ugly(Its need to be mentioned that making such panorama sky textures need lots of time and good high place to get proper results).
I even tried to make fake sky from fake clouds and some 3D environment to make it look more natural, and it was most ugly thing I made for game :D

I could try again with lower res sky(1024px) but seriously it would not be better what eg. atmosfear have.

I also tried to mess with real moving clouds using oblaska texture used for cloud movement in bad weather, but I didnt managed to make anything better than big pack of clouds flying weirdly all over the sky(really psychodelic experience...)

Yeah I'd figured maybe you'd dabbled in the area :)

What sort of resolution do skyboxes demand?

Moving clouds? That would be awesome. Got a video link of it working? I think I need to witness it.

default res for sky are 512x512, better ones have 1024x1024, that technically is enough if you keep it not compressed, but it would be nice to have bigger res skies, because after all they are biggest thing in game after ground textures that player look all the time, and because Stalker doesnt have dynamic sky/cloud, just overlapping textures, its one of area that really would need hi-res content.

As for moving clouds its not exactly single clouds moving around like in eg. Fallout. Its textures sky_oblaka.dds in gamedata/textures/sky that is used in cloudy weather that give that sky movement effect. I tired to use proper single clouds instead of that one seamless one, but as I said it was really psychodelic experience... In this week I will try to find it in one of my backup drive, so I post screenshots.

But as we speak, there is user :AzzzA: who posted mod Skygod that look just amazing... so no point of messing with it now if he started it.

I know about that some people have such problems, sadly I have new job, and I need to work my *** off all day, and just dont have free time right now to release fixed version. I barely had time to finish few textures that I already started doing.

For me its not so simple as "fix and upload" because I dont have such errors, and I need to download all mods, and try them over and over to find anything, especially that we talk here about graphic that dont give any error log.

Right now I would recommend downloading zip package and manually copy them to gamedata folder. Maybe misery lack one of detail texture, because this is most common crash related to graphic that i can think right now...

That's unfortunate. :(

I've been playing with this addon for quite a while. It's good.

ok so with the Stalker Two-K - zip file the game boots up with misery 2.2 but it now crashes when loading a saved game or starting a new game.

i guess ill have to manually extract each folder in the textures folder, boot up misery 2.2 and load a game to see which textures are causing the ctd.

its the mtl, wall and wood texture folders that are causing the ctd on loading a game with misery 2.2.

the other textures work fine. figuring out which set of textures in particular are causing the ctds within those folders is going to be a royal pita. maybe someone can figure that one out!

glad most of the mod works for misery 2.2 though, thanks!

btw these textures might work with misery 2.2 if you delete the misery 2.2 folders first before extraction.

As I said its probably because detail textures that are missing from misery, and are used by metal/wood thm files.
I made lots of changes in bumpmaps and details and I probably used detail textures that I forgot to put in main texture pack, and mods like misery dont have them -_-

Right now I just probably archive installer version and put info to use zip file... Installer is not a problem here, I just made it later than zip, and forgot to double-check if every file is there :/
