14 comments by jketiynu on Oct 20th, 2013

Some people likely saw this coming for some time but I am likely cancelling this mod. I'm not saying for sure that I am yet because I have yet to see if I can squeeze some extra time out of my days to keep making it, but it's unlikely. I can't neglect my real life for a mod. I've been doing that a bit in the past and it's a really dumb thing to do.

I don't want anything I've made to go to waste so I will likely release all the assets to people who want them.

I already offered Enigma (Arsenal Overhaul, which already has two weapons I ported/edited for Swartz mod 2.0) my weapons so I'll see if he wants them. If he does people can download his mod if he includes them all and get them through there (I still need to do stuff like finish world models and make scopes regular attachments again).
If he doesn't want them I'll give them to someone else.

In terms of scripts, it's a bit of a mess so I would likely just release it as-is via Dropbox or something and let people sort through it. Hopefully an actual scripter can come along and figure out a way around the shortcomings with the dual-aiming and solve the crash caused by the gibbing script.

I'd just like to say thank you to everyone who has given their support and time to my mod. If it does die I will make a new post with links to everything mentioned. I'm sorry to potentially disappoint people that have been tracking this, but I hope people will try and understand.

This is not the last of me and modding, it's just that due to my time constraints I'll have to make smaller scale projects from now on. I will likely not be doing any future projects for Stalker: Call of Pripyat except for porting over Meltac's Dynamic Shaders 2.0 to COP when it comes out.
I will probably make mods for Lost Alpha when that comes out and now that the source code for Cryengine 3 has been released I may do some mods for that as well.

I have a small issue but I think it might be the games fault rather than the mods...Anyway, when saving it can take up to two minutes to finish it. Same thing happens whenever I access the main menu. It's weird since everything else works fine and I get ~60fps almost all the time and it used to work just fine for the first couple of days. Any known fix for that ?

I barely recall that error but I do know it wouldn't cause crashes.

I have no clue what is going on with your game. Very weird.

Adding to this: if you have the Steam version try verifying your cache. Let me know if you solve this as I've honestly never heard of anything like this before (the hanging on save, menus, etc.)

I can't believe that didn't cross my mind... Yup, the validation fixed it. What I noticed I think it was the exe that had the issue. Silly me installed swartz after installing another mod but without doing the verification first. It seems that "certain mod" used a cracked executable in its installer even though I can't see how it would cause that. "Such is the life in the zone" I guess... Anyway, thanks !

Any way to use this with AtmosFear and Absolute Textures?

It already has Atmosfear included.

As for Absolute Textures, it has some of those included as well, but yeah you can go ahead and install it and let it overwrite existing files.

As for Absolute Nature 3, you can only use the "Lite" version of it with the mod. I had made a compatibility patch for the "full" version a long while ago, it's many news posts back but I have no idea if the link still works.

Can I use this mod while using Misery 2.0 at the same time?

No, they're both big mods.

Do you have some sort of ETA for the next update (for AI and stuff)?
Thanks in forward.

You specifically want an update about the standalone AI or an update on this mod?

In terms of the AI, I'm still having a couple of issues with it that were not fixed using the latest changes in the Misery 2 files. My guess is that I merged it wrong or something, though everything seems correct. The AI author took off but I'm going to see if I can track him down and see if he'd be willing to help make the independent release.

On this mod of course, I had been waiting for Misery for a long time but just too many issues atm imo. This mod is looking really epic already. I just want to play stalker, but at the same time I don't want to play through mods too early, especially just before a huge update comes out!

Will it be like less than a week or should I expect a month or more?

The release date is "Too be determined" which means more than a month.

Thanks, I'll play Zone: Revisited and/or SGM first then.
I'll keep checking this out for eventual updates.

And I accidently -'d your post instead of +-ing it. 0_0

No worries, I've done that on accident a few times too, lol.

Both those mods are good choices. Have fun.
