This is a really cool idea and I'd love to play with it. But it is incompatible with "best artifact mod", presumably because the arszi_psy.script is conflicting. It crashing upon loading the save. I tried the ARX compat patch but that did not work. Can you tell me how to patch it for compatibility or perhaps make a patch? I'd be happy to do it myself if you explained how.

Actually i just made one myself. unsure of how well it works but the game starts and nothing feels broken

edit: it is broken, i might be able to fix it, but I would appreciate guidance on how to make the patch

My guess is this one Moddb.com?

I will check it out and try to make a patch.

If you can, send me a error log form <game folder>/appdata/logs/xray_<username>.log

In general I make a comparison of original arszi_psy and one from mod, looking for changes and new functions. Comparing mine would show too much differences.
Then I'm checking out how this functions used in the mod's code, to understand what is needed and for what purpose.
After that I usually have an idea how to design a resolution in mine, but but unfortunately it's not something that I can make into easy to follow instruction.

Upd: Done.

Also, seen your drugs mod, nice idea.
Did you try if my mod interferes with it?

doesn't really make sense, you would normally be more than prepared to witness corpses (especially not mutilated) in the Zone, as you aren't ignorant and you knew that **** awaits you in your journey.

Wow, this is incredible! Survivng becomes more challenging and psybar now MORE useful. But there's one thing. Debug messages in local news appears even if debug mode disabled ("ENTER LEVEL 0")

Oh, thanks!
Missed that, because most of the testing is done with debug enabled.

Will update with a fix in about a week.

Great Mod, very nice addition to create a haunting atmosphere when there are !^^

A Suggestion: maybe make lack of sleep, or maybe hunger/thirst (low meter multiplier) a factor for increased psy-stress!
Because you know, when you are getting exhausted, malnourished etc., you might start to see/hear things that are not there, making you more paranoid.

Thanks for the idea, I will consider it for future versions.

There are two points which make me worried, though.
1) It might create a 'death spiral' effect, when one thing going wrong make other to go wrong, which makes impossible to recover from the situation.
2) Other such system does not seem to have direct connection in the game, so it might feel out of place.

On the other hand, I'm making everything into an option anyway, just will need to decide if it should be enabled or disabled by default.

Would this mod make sense in a monolith playthrough?

Depends on you head canon probably.

For me it seems like they don't lose sense of reality and instinct for self-preservation, it's their worldview gets overwritten by C-Consciousness.

But you can just reduce default stress or set modifiers for some conditions to 0 if you feel that they would not effect a monolith stalker.

After using the mod for a long time I noticed that the passive psy stress is affected by the player's psy protection, which can end up completely negating the stress once you get a good helmet like the Apocalypse.

Would it be possible to make the psy health protection not affect passive psy stress? Or at least make it ignore part of the player's protection? It sucks to have psy health become as useless as it used to be once you get a decent helmet.

I guess you could kind of headcanon it away in that by the time you get one of those you're probably more seasoned in the Zone so the effects aren't as bad. Same with using meds, etc. to temporarily boost your mental state enough to not be bothered by it.

Yes, I am aware of the issues with too high psy protections and know the frustration of gameplay system losing effect.

I want to address that but it would cause a chain effect making low level items even less effective, so full balance recalculation will be needed.

I might try to do that in the future but it probably will be out of scope for 1.0 this RC aims to be.

And thanks for being continuing user it helps a lot to keep motivation.

Aside from ^that^ I love the mod by the way, as I commented in the legacy versions the add-on gives you another preocupation to take care of while in the Zone, and also expands upon a neglected game feature that is psy health.

I just wanted to say, fantastic work so far! I'm working on a project that would tie in beautifully with you addon. I'm adding auditory hallucinations to low psy states. If you wanted to work together in implementing this, send me a DM on discord or on moddb! I've linked my work below

I'm not sure what you are referring to.

There is two options for campfire effect in the mod.
1) Legacy which uses functionality of CozyCampfire by Voland33 (https://www.moddb.com/mods/stalker-anomaly/addons/calming-campfires-for-anomaly-151), when this option is enabled, it regenerates psy health with speed controlled by 'Campfire psy regeneration' MCM option.
2) Current one, which is applied as modifier to basic psy-stress, same as all other environmental effects. This one is controlled by 'Campfire stress reduction' MCM option.

Just re-checked, both are working correctly in game, so I need more details like other mods you are using, or a debug log while character is standing near campfire.

ARX version should work, but psy-regeneartion from artifacts would not work entirely the same way.

I probably will made a patch for that too.

UPD: Done.

I'm not 100% sure about possible side effects, but EFP has too much mods for me to properly test everything.

In arszi_psy.script, find all 'show_message_news("ENTER STAGE ' lines, and comment them out by adding -- in the beginning.

Yes it does, Calming Campfires is included in all versions of the add-on.
Just make sure to enable it in the first place on it's configuration menu with MCM.

I like the idea, but I think the effort is misplaced. I totally agree psy-damage is underused in Anomaly, but I honestly don't want my psy-health to go down while fighting, or other circumstances proposed in your addon.

I would prefer it goes down in places where you actually get psy-damage, just like vanilla stalker games used to do.

You could add in to that certain mutants with psy-abilities that, for now, don't do any psy-damage (burrers, psy-dogs, psy-suckers, etc).

Hopefully such an addon will one day see the light of day.

I appreciate the suggestion, but fixing lack of psy-damage from monsters would be a whole different mod, because instead of updating main psy-helath system it is about re-modding monsters.

There are already some effort in that directions (burer and controller overhauls for example), so for now I can only suggest keeping an eye for other mutants mods and posting them here for compatibility requests.

I'm not sure how good weather detection might work, considering that game is not always sure how to load it, but I will consider it in future.

I love this mod it's come a long way! I do have a consensus question, of all the options, what do you think the most realistic/balanced is? Currently, I'm using [o4_classic_alcohol_only_psy_for_smokes] – combination of o2 and o3. What do you guys think is the best option there and why?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes
livvan Author
livvan - - 105 comments

Well, I don't think that Anomaly is balanced at all in the first place, but I don't think that any smokes+drinks option is clearly overpowered or useless. Basically choose what feels for you like more realistic combination of effects.

Obviously, I prefer "Full" option, since that was what I made for myself initially. :D

Could you add in next version an option to get a psy hit every time you skin a mutant? So if you get 3 game hours shining mutants non stop you start to getting nuts

Thanks for suggestion.

Well, definitely not in the next, but I will research if it's possible and consider for future updates.
However, it's very unlikely that it's possible with changes only in psy script.
