S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Way of the Wolf

Status Update #5

Summer is firmly here folks, so distractions are numerous and common!
That said, we're all back to hard work whenever we can get away from sun, swimming and drinking!

Main news this time is regarding the WotW Dev Team, which you may have already heard from the screenshot I couldn't help but release last week. This means we'll finally be able to get started properly with systems that will seriously raise WotW up beyond the ranks of all others!

On with the show!

Dev Team Update, StalkComms Overview

Way of the Wolf now has a coder!

That's right, joining the development team is the very talented ThunderFreak who will be making our dreams for under-the-hood scripting magic come true!

His first project is an AMK-inspired news/Stalker messaging system that I've nicknamed StalkComms!

The idea is that Stalkers will broadcast messages and have conversations, factions will declare their triumphs and spew propaganda (as in the main picture above), and sometimes there may even be weird transmissions received from unknown sources.
StalkComms is designed to provide a greater sense of belonging to a living world, with Stalkers possibly conversing about events that may have occurred by your hand. Either that or spilling their sorrows on the airwaves on a rainy night over a bottle of vodka!

StalkComms is the first of hopefully many script-systems Way of the Wolf will introduce, and we can't wait to show off what else we've got planned.
Welcome to the team ThunderFreak!

Summer? Where I am it's winter! And at this time of the year the lions are roaring all night long. It's crazy. But in any case, this mod is amazing and the work you guys have done so far are just insane. With the new addition of a scripter you guys will sure as hell kick a lot of ***!

You're so lucky right now.

I would so visit, just to watch your toilet spin the wrong way. Or wait... since you live there, and I'm the foreigner, maybe my toilet's direction is the wrong way... and yours is the right way?

Oh man... this is gonna take some time to decide.

Have you talked about upgrading yet ? This was THE missing feature from Redux for CoP. Weapons variations aren't just the same. Anyway, good work up there. I have a feeling this is going to be the Priboi Story of CoP.

Hopefully it'll be better than Priboi ;)
Upgrading is going to definitely be in, don't worry.

Thank you for the flowers. :)

I try my best to get a proper chat/message broadcast system running.

This really is some promising news. With the obvious creative talent behind this project, it's fantastic to hear that the potential of having more of those great concepts of yours may actually become implementable in-game. Good to see such a valuable member added to the team.

I'm eagerly waiting to see what's Beac's got up his sleeve next !
