The Zone's Call returns the player to the southern reaches of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, to once again, answer the Zone's Call.

With all of the southern areas from Clear Sky, ranging from the expansive Marshes to the eerie Red Forest, along with some of the more well known areas from Shadow of Chernobyl, are used to help complete the world of the southern Exclusion Zone.

The mod aims to bring a unique view of the Zone to life, with new and improved Alife features, for both Stalkers and mutants. Stalkers will randomly travel the Zone during the day, and return to camps at night. Mutants will alternate between resting in lairs in the wilderness, and haunting abandoned buildings during the day, waiting for Stalkers foolish enough to approach. Emissions will sweep the Zone, bringing with them waves of deadly radiation, or inducing hallucinations and destroying sanity, and ultimately, death to anyone exposed for too long.

With new challenges comes new solutions. Recruit other Stalkers to join your team, and travel the Zone together, clear out mutant lairs, or watch your back as you fish for artifacts in an anomaly. Select equipment from an expanded inventory range to deal with problems in the way you deem best for the situation at hand, or to try something new and different instead.

So, Stalker. How will you answer the Zone's Call?

Sadly, everything must come to an end sooner or later.

This announcement is to say that I am officially finished with Stalker modding for a variety of personal reasons. I have uploaded the non SDK materials and content as a source package for other modders to pick up and use as they see fit, not as a workable, playable demo. I will be uploading the my SDK materials and contents as well within the next few days.

Thanks for all your support over the years.

Just a heads up - i've somehow managed to have caught a summer cold. So until I'm better, I've suspended work on this so the release will unfortunately be delayed.
Cant think straight with these migraines either

Update - been to the doctors (and if I need to go, its usually because I am not doing well).
Good news: My symptoms are more typical of hayfever, apart from the stabbing headache. There have been more hayfever related treatments lately, and given my allergies, the doctor thinks this is the cause of my blocked sinuses and pulsing forehead headaches. So I've been cleared of a cold.
Bad news: The doctors medical opinion, based on the location of said stabbing headache, means I've either got an inflamed muscle in the neck thats pulling/pressing on something it shouldn't be, OR one of the spinal processes in either the C2 or C3 vertebrae has come out of alignment slightly, and is pinching either a muscle or nerve slightly.
In either case, it is firing the pain up to a nerve cluster on the back of the skull causing the stabbing headaches.
I've been given some new meds, and they are dealing with the pain better, so now I have windows where I can think clearly.

I just hope its an inflamed neck muscle...

Sorry to hear what happened, hope that you feel better soon, and that you can continue on your mod. If you don't work on it any more, I know its your choice and hope you find something to put your skill into.

Hi Seta, have you recovered yet? The one liner upload of the gamedata folder seems a bit weird. Hope you are well.

I won't have decent internet during Christmas, so I won't be able to upload.
I'll aim for New Years, as I'll be back at my place then.

I'm currently working on fixing the Garbage Bandits, have my own plans there.
I'll do the same to the Duty and Freedom bases. You'll be able to completely wipe them out once you conquer them as part of the faction war.
