The Zone of Alienation mod is an adaptation of the renowned AMK mod. It is built on top of a specialized variant of AMK that uses a magazine system. From this premise, it has expanded to aim to include the following:

  • Realistic ballistics.
  • An expanded arsenal of weapons.
  • Improved AI.
  • An expanded and embellished storyline, from the original Shadow of Chernobyl, while preserving the original core plot.
  • New levels.
  • New characters.
  • New quests.
  • An artifact detection system, and new artifacts, with old artifacts having altered properties
  • A realistic implementation of night vision, weight, sleep, and possibly weather even affecting the actor.
  • Many visual improvements over the standard SoC, and AMK. 
  • Vastly increased difficulty.
  • Optional freeplay with the ability to traverse every level of the game, and join any faction.

Readme - Changelog - Credits

It's been quite some time since the last update, so FatalFunnel and I are happy to bring you a new and improved full version of ZoA, and would like to thank you all for your patience throughout the process. The goal of ZoA 1.07.2 has been primarily to polish the rougher aspects of the mod; to this end many bugs have been fixed, text improved, and scripts optimized. However, there are plenty of new features and balance changes as well. For a full list of what's new, click the Changelog link above.

I would also like to take this opportunity to announce that I have decided to discontinue my contributions to the mod. It's been an entertaining and informative experience, but I feel that it's time to move on to other things. Big thanks to FF for allowing me onto the project, and to all the ZoA fans for supporting us.

Good hunting, stalkers.

Note: the old 1.07 base and Patch 13 downloads will be removed in a week, so if for whatever reason you want those, get 'em now.

Fixed a problem with the hotfix all.spawn being antiquated and lacking the level changers in the release version. The all.spawn used is now the release...

Are you aware that certain ammo variants are excessively heavy?

One of the 9mm AP rounds is 20x heavier than normal and the ak74 tracers are 30x heavier than normal.

This pritty much makes them unusable.

I've noticed this as well.

I think it might be an issue with it inheriting the 'box' of ammo weight (since the boxes contain 20-30 rounds).

Don't know enough to be sure.

Their weight also disappears if loaded into a mag.

I also can't find the night star (north of the car park?).

I'm probably missing something obvious.

A post I made on the ENB mod page.

I'm getting this game breaking bug. I know it's directly related to the ENB addon. If I remove all ENB/SweetFX related files, or leave the Shaders file unchanged, the problem ceases. Though if I don't remove/rename the shaders file I lose all ENB effects and they're replaced with the original shader files. It has run perfect smooth up until this point. This crash occurs when I approach the Bandit base in Dark Valley.


[error]Expression : fatal error
[error]Function : CResourceManager::_GetBlender
[error]File : E:\stalker\sources\ trunk\xr_3da\ResourceManager.cpp
[error]Line : 49
[error]Description : <no expression>
[error]Arguments : Shader 'effects\shadow_world' not found in library.

I've located the shadow_world file under the R2 folder. Of course for ENB to be enabled this folder has to be commented out. Any suggestions?

BTW, the mod has run bug free up to this point. I know in the past there were some qwerks with weight and magazine management. The gun play is by far the best of any STALKER mod, or most any other shooter I've played for that matter. That's what really draws me to this mod. Thanks guys.

It used to be only for 1.0004, I think the previous release works with it. 1.07.2 is for 1.0006.

when i select the sks (i assume its an sks, its some ww2 soviet rifle from the looks of it) it CTDs. Is there somewhere i can properly bug report?

Also, the patch rendered the game unplayable for me.

EDIT: I found the forum so thats one problem solved :)
