A group of stalkers, for the first time, reaches the very heart of the Zone-the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant-and triggers a cataclysm on the brink of a catastrophe. An immense blast of anomalous energy transforms the Zone: the once reliable and relatively safe roads are no longer so, the landscape is wiped clean by outbursts of anomalies, and previously unknown areas appear on the Zone map. Stalkers and expeditions perish or end up isolated within the lost territories.
UPDATED 05-25-2018 (New Game shouldn't be required) A reworked version of STCS 2.6.3 Merged with SRP 1.1.2 Additions of some features, fixes, changes. Read the description for more details. Compatible version of CS Dynamic Hud for STCS 2.6.3 Redux is in the CS addons section.
This is a reworked version of STCS Weapon Pack 2.6.3 - Link to STCS Weapon Pack 2.6.3
It has been merged with Sky Reclamation Project 1.1.2 - Link to SRP 1.1.2
I recommend you read the included "SRP v1.1.2 - Readme.txt"
Lots of changes and fixes, and a some additions have been made in this version of STCS.
Please read the entire readme so you will have a better understanding.
In this update:
-Fixed the Unique VSS Vintorez not having it's installed upgrades or it's own description. Updated hud positioning for it so the scope aligns better when aiming.
In this update:
-Added script fix for a rare crash "\sr_bloodsucker.script:428: attempt to index field 'npc_squad' (a nil value)" - Thanks to Shoker/Shoker mod team
-Replaced the Gauss weapon model with one from AO 3.1 which has a PKS-07 scope, better texture for the scope and better animations. Made new inventory Icon for the Gauss.
-Replaced the PKS-07 scope crosshair texture with one from STCOP, but slightly edited.
In this update:
-Added placeable backpack stashes, a marker is placed on your map once a backpack stash is made. Sold at traders and rarely found in stashes.
-Added the Outfit bug fix (see readme) - Big thanks to Artos + Shoker
-Added silencer to the GSh-18 pistol models, updated the config file.
-Added icons and English descriptions for the takable explosive barrels. Added missing mesh for one of them.
-Added a new hud arm mesh and texture for the Bulat suit so it doesn't share the same arms with the Berril
-Edited stash contents for most levels, nothing too drastic. Repair toolkits and backpacks can now be found in stashes.
I have tested this and fixed any bugs I came across. However, if you encounter any please post in the comments with the end of your crashlog or a pastebin link to your crashlog. Thank you.
The scope system has been fixed, all weapon addons work as they should.
All AC11090, Kobra, EKP, EOT, C-more scopes and the G36 integrated weapon scope use the lightplanes shader with the reticle manipulated in the animations. (The only weapon sights using the selflight shader are two pistols (FNX-45, Deagle with Docter sight)
If the weapon's skeleton did not have an available bone to use for this, a new bone was added to the skeleton and the weapon animations, new animations + hud models were re-processed through the SDK.
While in the process of this, I also fixed some models that lost their smoothing in some areas making some faces look jagged when they shouldn't be.
This was most notable on the hud models of the 9A-91, GSh-18, Beretta, Colt kimber, Scar ironsights, some Sniper rifle scopes/lenses.
•Other changes, additions, fixes:
Edited a ton of ironsights and sight coordinates for the new default FOV (75)
The SVD and SVU now use ironsights by default, and can accept both the PSO and the PSO1M21 scope.
The 9A91, AS Val, SR-3M Vikhr, VSS Vintorez rifles can now accept the PSO scope as well as PSO1M21, 1P29, EKP, Kobra
The VSS Vintorez now uses ironsight by default
Added Sleeping bag + Repair kits
Added Loot money addon
Added item usage sounds, so when you use a medkit, bandage, drink vodka/energy drink, use antirads, eat food, their sound is played.
Added/merged in the "reduced grenade spam" SRP optional
Added run through water gamemtl.xr
Added a better flashlight
Added fix for static lighting renderer not showing lightplanes shaded reticles correctly.
Added transparent inventory texture
Added some replacement textures, the PP-2000, SV-98, G3, PKS-07 scope, WA2000 scope
Made some new models for up2+nimble weapons
Translated spawner mod file, added items to spawner, see Optional folder.
Edited a number of audio files that were not commented, commented incorrectly, or had audio distortion/clipping.
Added a number of missing textures for particles and ground/grass for levels.
Edited shell and fire point positions for 3rd person view/NPC's
Edited scope zoom factors (see gamedata\configs\weapons\Zoom Factors.txt)
Edited the descriptions a bunch as well. Only edited the English text files.

Q: Will you be updating this?

Q: Will there be a port to Call of Chernobyl?
A: Most likely, but have no ETA. Depends on time constraints, life, etc.
