Short History:

The STALKERSOUP Project began as an English language version of the popular Russian Megamod, Narodnaya Solyanka (Peoples Soup) plus DMX 1.3.4, from a group led by TecnoBacon.
Released July 30th 2011 as an open BETA test to aid the mod team in adding new features and rewriting the game code. The standard version retains the dark decayed look of the earlier DMX DKZ 1.3.2 Mod release. New texture packs, and revised scripts, offer improved performance. The Collector, is integrated and expanding with the package. And that is only the beginning. There is more content on the way.

On August 1st 2011, the TECNOBACON.COM site went live, with the STALKERSOUP Mod (Narodnaya Solyanka + DMX DKZ + DMX 1.3.4, open BETA). This is a playable BETA RELEASE, poised to become the best English version of Peoples Soup, and to continue growing from there. Many issues have already been fixed, jump in and have fun. You can help by testing and reporting. Send those reports to the email address: stalkersoup@tecnobacon.com.

People Solyanka - this is not a game, it is - virtual reality. Here you are guaranteed a different experience with every game. Here everyone can find something to their liking."

Let me add that the game becomes much better after the Cave level. Be warned, for some of us that love the Stalker series, this mod is addictive "Stalker Red Bull". We can't stop playing it.


This ModDB page is new, and still under construction. While work is underway to create a better site for you here on ModDB, there are several sites with active communities of Stalkersoup players.

Finally a nice reading conclusion of the Moddescription! Really looking forward to your 1.1. Release. Many things to fix (weapondmg, bandits, language, quests) from the previous version.

Any news about 1.1? I found the 0.9 and tried it but I gave up due to its heavy RAM requirement (I've 4GB and 64-bit but the client sucked up 1.4GB and that was only the beginning with lower settings than what I wanted).

Any closer to release?
