Description

The second version of the Autumn Aurora brings the autumnal atmosphere to the Zone and totally overhauls the graphics, sound and gameplay of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl. The mod is built on the newest Zone Reclamation Project's core, it contains official AtmosFear for ShoC which has never been released before. AtmosFear has been extensively redesigned to match the autumn style. It also holds an official new Absolute Nature for ShoC (never released as standalone as well) with new tree models from AN3 CoP and some new ones. It is the perfect opportunity for every S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fan to immerse again into Chernobyl universe in completely different style this time!

Hnnnnngh....

...downloading I suppose.

Also, is there any way the AA2 ENB and DynamicDOF can be ported to Call of Chernobyl?

Is the Call of Chernobyl mod for COP? If yes, there is no way...it's the ENB only for SoC.

Hard to say. It's something special only for AA2.1. You need to play to see the difference in graphics (updated ENB, lighting, colours etc.)

I don't know, I have been going back and forth to them and I feel like the new version is very washed out in terms of color. I guess I will keep at it and see if I adjust more to it.

Is secret trails 2 ever going to be re-added to AA 2.1? I always wanted to try it out but the download was removed.

Yes, I was thinking about it and I'll make new adaptation with AA2.1. I only need original english version. If there is somebody who has link to this it would be nice because I don't have it on my harddrive.

Cool! To download the English version, go to Mega.co.nz and scroll down to the Secret Trails 2 folder.

Your earlier merge is there too, in the Autumn Aurora + Secret Trails 2 folder.

Another great mod that could do with the AA2 love is RMA - Old Storyline Restoration Mod. It's a vanilla+ mod that simply restores the unused assets in the game and doesn't change anything other than the story, so it kind of makes sense to add AA2 which changes everything but the story. :-)

And since I'm listing wishes - AA2 + AMK 1.4.1 + RMA would be a superb mod. Extra challenge (AMK, AA2 gunplay), super atmosphere (AA2 everything, AMK anomalies), extra content (RMA)!

Hi!

I'm a huge fan of STALKER series and mods. I've tried all add-ons so far, and I can tell, this is the BEST GRAPHICS and ATMOSPHERE STALKER MOD EVER MADE! God bless all the authors of it! In some aspects even better graphics, than Lost Alpha and it achieves this with DX9 "only"!

Thanks for your hard work! I would love to see this working together with Dynamic Shaders 2.0, but unfortunatelly I haven't been able to merge them together so far, without having some issues (mostly on trees' and ground flickering textures).

Keep up the good work!!!

Thanks.

I love this mod! I've been playing the last version, but I must ask.... will I need to restart to play this version? Is it as simple as over-writing existing files with the new ones, or will that screw stuff up? I looked through the comments and can't seem to find any answer, so if you would be so kind.....

Yes. Remove old version and install the new one. New game is required.

Yo,

Made an account to post about an issue I'm having, haven't played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in a while, reinstalled and decided to take this mod for a spin after hearing things about it. Looks great and all but I'm noticing that talking to NPCs is odd in the fact that it autoskips quest text and updates (Things like receiving objectives, guns, ect...) All gets skipped immediately and closes the text box, the tutorial Sidorivich offers being another thing that gets skipped through. I've fiddled around with everything for a while but have yet to find a way to get that to be fixed. Any ideas?

Why do the graphics now seem more.. Washed out? Like the contrast is too high or something. I thought I was seeing things but then I installed the old AA 2.1 and it looks a lot more crisp and visually stunning than the new release.

What gives?

Are you using an external AA injector? The new ENB setting enables EdgeAA by default. If you have another source of AA going, you will get a washed out look.

I LOVE the graphics but i HATE the gameplay :(
I don't like the new hud, the disabled counter and the missing red dots. I don't like the new balancing..

Is is possible to only install the new shaders you use?
I already have the latest Absolute Nature and Absolute Structures (even though you say the mod uses newer versions.. it's okay for me).

When I try to copy the shaders they are totally linked to weathermods etc and they are connected to scripts and then I need to look individually for every gameplay-relevant script and take it out.

Do you have the shaders in a clean folder and could release them please?

Hi. first off let me say that Autumn Aurora 2 (and SHOC) is an experience to be had. Visuals are impressive and the immersive gameplay is matched.

Each version of AA2 is different in gameplay and graphical fidelity(maybe). Is there a way to use assets or scripts from version 2.05 (20.08.2014) in version 2.1.

How do Artifacts "respawn" in Autumn Aurora? If they even do.

I don't mind if there is no blowouts, but artifact respawn should be possible.

Hello I am currently running the game on a windows 10 laptop and have succesfully installed the mod once, but in the wrong folder. I have uninstalled it, and now I keep on getting the same error message of windows not being able to access to the mod launcher, maybe because of permissions.
I have tried everything from turning off my windows defender to resinstalling everything, and I keep on getting the same errors.
I may have bugged some stuff during uninstalling the mod for the first time, but I don't know what that is.
I am the only one currently having this error... Would install stuff manually, but will take too long...
Although I haven't tried downloading the mod from somewhere else, would that fix the problem ? I doubt it
