Growing addon Pack with optional files for enjoyment. Expanded trader inventories, Stronger actor, less spongy monsters, better loot and more.
Tested with latest Last Day 1.3+patch update (3/14/2018)
This addon contains optional files that will make the game slightly easier and/or add effects. I started making this for my own wishes but decided to share if anyone would like to have these changes also :)
** Any files that require a new game will have highlighted statements in the following descriptions **
** Retired/replaced addons are still available but not updated. Use at your own risk **
!! ** Compatibility addons should be added AFTER other addons ** !!
** Compatible option for FCO & Custom Shotgun Loads **
** Optional fully unlocked traders stock **
Traders will have more selections and high quantities available for misc items and equipment. Armor and weapons selections are spread out more now so you wont be seeing any modern or new weapons in supply level 2 for example (few exceptions), however all trader supply levels require less goodwill making further supply levels easier to reach. Last Wishes traders have a max of 1000 goodwill and start upgrading their supply at 400 goodwill with each new supply level earned every 200 goodwill after (1000,800,600,400). Choose one of the trader addons you like best.
"Stronkman" Actor file
The player character will run faster, jump higher and generally perform better than your average Last Day chuvak (dude). Also character hunger rate has been reduced by 1/3 and has 2x the stamina, though you will still get tired quickly if under heavy load. There is an optional file for 1.5x stamina also.
No Delay and High Task Rewards
This is just a combination of these two mods, they share the same files so i just merged them all for compatibility.
Less Spongy Monsters
Reduced damage resistance for boar, burer, chimera, flesh, giant and snork. resistances were lowered about 1/3 or 1/4 so they should no longer eat shotgun blasts to the face and just shrug it off.
** Optional multi use (2x) **
Each of the 3 medkit types have extra benefits. The extra effects only last a short time but can get you out of a pinch, prices are unchanged. For example, regular medkit now offers a mild nervous stimulant in addition to mild healing and blood loss inhibitor, army medkit has strong healing and very strong blood loss reduction with pain inhibitors, and finally scientific medkits have very strong healing alongside strong blood loss reduction as well as offering chem/toxin and psy inhibitors with powerful radioprotectant. See notes in file for better details.
Achievements Half Requirements
Achievements require half the normal counts for their prerequisites. All prior savegame achievement counts are retroactively applied and grant their respective achievement :)
This addon simply makes loot such as consumables and aux equipment more common and adds more loot drop options. Nothing major just small boosts to common items and a few nods to faction preferences. Veterans and Masters are the only notable difference being that their drops are more generous with equipment modules.
Lighter Mutant Parts
Makes all mutant parts and food half the normal weight.
Ranked Loot Weapon Condition Range
** In-game option "loot condition dependent on rank" must be enabled **
Looted weapons have a wider condition range that improves with higher ranked stalkers. A master stalker obviously has a good shooter and maintains it regularly but is possible for him to have a jammed shooter. Rookies must settle for junk as usual ;)
Zone Hunters Life
** Add alone or AFTER trader files included in pack **
Artefact hunting not your thing? Try making a living in the zone as a hunter!
Butcher traders will pay good money for trophy mutant parts, especially hides. They also pay more for the other meaty bits like hearts and livers. Scientific monster parts are not as desired however butchers do compete with scientists for some rare parts as far as selling prices go.
Controller Psi Aura Less Deadly but Still Deadly
** Add alone or with any Last Wish monster addons **
Controller psi aura is now survivable with the proper protection. Unprotected skulls are still going to get roasted but military helmets now provide some relief, especially with psi upgrades. Scientific headgear is required for long term exposure to the controllers powerful psi aura. See notes in file for details.
Controller Psi Aura Less Deadly With Voices
** Add alone or with any Last Wish monster addons **
Controller psi aura will have the creepy voice from sarcophagus taunting the player. It includes the change to psi aura damage from the previous addon, so there is no need to install both.
"Your path is coming to an end. Come to me" "Come to me. You shall receive what you deserve."
Phantom Half speed
** Add alone or with any Last Wish monster addons **
This addon simply makes the phantom/ghost monsters produced by the brain scorchers move at half the normal speed. Optional file for 1/4 speed.
Poltergeist Less Deadly but Still Deadly** Add alone or with any Last Wish monster addons **
Poltergeist psi aura damage slightly reduced and telekinesis object throwing time slowed. Fire poltergeist flame aura damage reduced by about 2x.
AI Detection & Alertness Tweaks
The goal of this addon is to make NPC characters less esp aware of the player and reduce xray vision through semi-transparent objects like bushes. Useful if your sneaky, poor or just like to take in the atmosphere and lurk everywhere in the zone with more ease.
It should be easier to lose your enemy in cover with this addon due to reduced xray vision through objects like bushes while alert, also AI will not "remember" where you were as they could before. You can use cover effectively to retreat or ambush alerted enemy AI searching for your location. Expect less precise grenade throws from AI also as they can no longer sense your position as long after you leave line-of-sight.
Detection range factors, rate of detection threshold increase, velocity and luminosity factors are unchanged. The results of the changed settings seem to fit the goals of the addon without making the AI stupid or less lethal in combat. Just go prone and hold still or they will spot you!
This addon pack is going to grow. My future plans/ideas include but are not limited to the following
- Customize trader inventory more in the likeness of their factions
- Expand specialty traders such as the flea market trader, the butcher and trophy hunter
- Expand loot tables for more than just zombies
- Further tweaking of monsters such as burer and controller to change psi effects
- Further modification of items such as food, medical and etc
- Customize artefact spawning rates and maybe spawn locations at some point. I cant figure out the script yet :(
- Reduce armor damage from flame anomalies
It is my goal to keep this addon pack's files completely compatible with itself. If you should choose to add all of your choice addons at once, none of the files will cause issue provided you installed them in the correct order. Keep an eye out for included compatibility patches for each addon type and addons that share effects.
I am not a very experienced modder and my knowledge of xray sorcery is weak. I tested this addon pack and all was well for my run.
Any future updates to Last Day will be checked (provided I payed my isp bill) and this addon pack will be updated as required. If there comes a day when I cannot follow progress of Last Day and this addon pack becomes detrimental it will be highlighted as such or removed (or passed on to somebody).
I couldnt have done any of this without referring to the work of everyone in the credits, specifically strelocc, Tronex and andrejchudoba. Thank you so much!
TRX: Fixes 'n' Tweaks by Tronex. You should consider this as an official patch imo. Use it.
More Fast Travel Locations by yarmoshuk. Made for CoC but works fine (for me) with Last day 1.3+patch update 3/14, however the new map Glade will not be fast travel accessible since it doesnt exist where this addon comes from.
Animation disable hotkey addon in Small and random scripts and tweaks 1.1.2 [LD 1.2] by ssregibility. It works for Last Day 1.3+patch update 3/14, use the numpad 9 key to toggle animations, you will hear a sound when it toggles. (The addon desciption says to use numpad + however the correct key is num 9 for some reason)
-Added new addon "AI Detection & Alertness tweaks"
-Replaced "Better Zombie Loot" with new addon "Dead Loot+"
-Replaced "Army Medkit Bleeding Stop" with new addon "Medkits+"
All replaced/retired addons are still available in the pack but no longer updated, use at own risk.
- Update testing "complete" as no further issues are encountered
- Updated Stronkman actor files
Included missing ecologist hud hand entry for Stronkman actor files.
- Fixed some typos and spelling again :-7
- Updated addons in the pack for compatibility with latest Last Day update 3/14/2018
With all addons chosen at once, Last Wishes now appears stable for Last Day but testing still continues. Immediate CTD issues from incompatibility have been fixed however further testing is needed to be sure no other issues exist. Feedback is welcome/needed.
Removed addons that were not A-life revamp compatible since that addon was integrated into the game and replaced them with the A-life compatibility patches that were already available in the Last Wishes pack, which solved CTD issues.
Removed regular Stronkman addons and replaced them with the HD hands compatible ones since the HD hands changes are part of the regular game now.
Included changes from updated trade presets for all Last Wishes trader addons.
For the Zone Hunter addon, the hunter preset has been removed from trade presets to facilitate custom prices for mutant parts. (its the only way i can give prices more variety far as i know right now)
Also bumped up the prices for Zone Hunter a lil bit.
- Added compatibility options in Last Wishes for the following addons;
TRX Alife Revamp by Tronex - Included entries and visual changes from Alife Revamp for flesh and snork
TRX Sound Revamp by Tronex - Included sound changes from Sound Revamp for Poltergiest
HD Hands by thorbits - Included Actor hud entries (and 3 omissions) from HD Hands actor file.
A helpful guest motivated the creation of these addon patches. There were no serious compatibility issues prior to making these compatible addons, with the possible exception of A-Life Revamp. Adding Less spongy monsters after A-Life Revamp may have been causing script errors.
- Added addon: Poltergeist Less Deadly but Still Deadly
- Added addon option for Last Wish Traders for fully unlocked inventory "all stock"
- Added to Last Wish Traders and all options
Monolith trader now has access to most armor upgrades
Added trade_presets to facilitate trade of repair items for scientists
Ecologist traders (Sakharov and Hermann) now have access to most armor upgrades and trade for repair items
- Fixed Last Wish Traders and all options
Merc trader was missing some weapon repair kit options.
- Added new addon: Controller Psi Voices
- Fixed Monolith and Spore trader for Last Wish Traders - FCO&Cshotgunshells
Monolith and Spore were not selling bolo or flechette shotgun ammo in basic supply as was intended for the addon. They do now.
- Added new addon: Phantom Half Speed (optional 1/4 speed)
- Changed addon: Zone Hunters Life
Prior price settings were way too high. Reduced the payout so hunting is not too profitable.
- Changed addon: Army Medkit Bleeding Heal
Prior setting was healing 750ml a second (way too high) and is now 325ml, about 2x as effective as a bandage
- Added more items and junk to zombies loot table that you could expect to find
- Fixed a bunch of spelling errors in descriptions, probably missed a bunch still :-/
- Added new addon: Controller Psi Aura Less Deadly but Still Deadly
- Added new addon: Zone Hunters Life

Prior settings were dropping weapons too much in good condition or in a higher condition than was intended from the victims rank.

- Better zombie loot
- Lighter mutant parts
- Ranked loot weapon condition range
Tronex's pleasant addon description formats make mine look like a 12 year old typed it and made me feel a little self conscious, so i fixed it up a little :-\
also fixed a bunch of spelling and typo problems. Gonna be lots of that..
