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:

Post news Report RSS 7 new weapons added so far, more information soon.

I've added about 7 different weapons over the past few days, they are roughly implemented, some are hastily balanced, and many lack descriptions. However soon I will upload a video to show that the mod is currently making progress.

It is not adding weapons into the game that is difficult, it's a rather simple process. The real work is adding weapons to the trader files and on NPCs in a manner so that they are balanced in price and their placement in the game. I am currently compiling a list for the weapons that NPCs will carry that will be edited into the gameplay\character_desc files. I am deciding which NPCs get what weapons depending on the following factors.

  • Time spent in the Zone (experience)
  • Faction, or grouping.
  • Level the NPC is on.

These three factors determine what characters will be armed with. Loners and monolith will have the highest variety of armament. More organized factions will have a more organized use of weapons, primarily based on caliber, and the logistics of managing ammunition. Some faction goals and purposes will have an affect on NPC loadout, for instance, Duty will carry higher end shotguns than other factions to deal with mutant threats.


Every single screenshot except the M16A3 one is nearly impossible to see due to its darkness. :P

Sweet though. May I make a suggestion? I've been fascinated with this lately:

It's a .50 revolver. Its shells come in ball, AP and shot. I think I've already seen it mentioned in the context of STALKER, whether a mod included it or something, so you might be able to get your hands on a model and animations.

The metric system is one hell of a drug.

Very interesting. It's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for as far as a revolver that would be carried in the Zone.

If only I could get this, the Los-7-1 rifle, and the PSS pistol all added.
