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:
Since I lost my place sometime back in December I've had to work on a new version of the mod to replace the old 1.05 release. 1.07 is intended to replace the old version of the mod and it's now the latest stable build.
After working on this, it is now my goal to focus on new levels next, and then rebuild everything once again.
File size was not the issue here, I simply could not upload it to this site, the compressed archive is 2.32GB, which is slightly under Moddb's limit.
I've been paying attention to many of the bugs people have been encountering with it. Almost no mod release is perfect, especially one with a history as rough around the edges as this mod. So below is the link to the first hotfix. I will be working on a follow-up patch in the next few days that adds some things, a few fixes, and in general tries to get the mod more functional and enjoyable to play.
Since this is now out, and we have a new base for the mod to work on, I can start work on incorporating new levels soon, but first I'm going to take a small break from major stuff and work on a followup patch and an optional addon. In the meantime, I'd like to welcome a new member to the modding team, Piznut, he worked on many of the weapon descriptions, and I look forward to him working on this mod in the future, speaking of which, I will be restructuring development very soon, as the changes being made after 1.07 involve a number of things that are currently out of my league.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Zone of Alienation mod. We love games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
