In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km 'Exclusion Zone' around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.

Description

This is a smaller, BETA release. More to come in the future. This mod compilation is for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Lost Alpha v1.3003. Lost Alpha Mod Pack 2014 is a mod compilation that adds many features from various SoC mods to Lost Alpha. Credit to the original authors. It adds about 50 new guns to the game, which are available at traders and NPCs carry them as well. In addition, about a dozen new outfits are available, most vanilla guns have new, high-res unmirrored weapon skins, sound effects overhaul, and the game has been rebalanced to be more challenging. The player, human enemies, and smaller mutants like dogs die much faster. AI is a bit more dangerous, some mutants are far more deadly. Also included is a large address aware patcher, which is an exe file. This will let Lost Alpha use up to 4GB RAM, increasing performance and increasing stability. Remember that this is an early release. More will come in the future, hopefully including a much needed A-Life overhaul.

Im guessing it has new weapons, are the hands model the same as stalker shoc and la? Or does some weapons include the kingfriday ones?

Hand model is different, not sure who made it. But unfortunately hand models don't change with outfits in LA. Let's hope someone makes a mod for this.

It doesnt bother me the dynamic hand model, i meant the different mesh for weapons. I saw that for your mosin it has the kingfriday one and for the ots (pistol, i guess) its vanilla hand mesh. Sorry i didnt explain myself better :|

If gamefront mirror works, I recommend that one. It's faster and has less BS for me.

Worked and installed :)

But I have encountered an impressive bug right at the start mission (I still have to find out if that is a bug or if it is actually wanted), but if you are searching that little bog for the artifact, there suddenly appears a massive Thorn-like artifact right in front me.
It's about 3-4 meters wide and high, and probably is the artifact I'm looking for, just in huge size...can't be picked up (of course), so I can't complete the mission.

Got that bug sorted, the big thorn was indeed a feature, I wasn't looking careful enough for the actual artifact ;)

Hey boredgunner, thanks for the mod pack! Just wanted to ask how can I re-enable the minimap? Is it even possible?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

You can indeed re-enable it. To do so, go to your Lost Alpha\gamedata\config\ui folder and delete all six of the "zone map" files.

Hi Boredgunner...I have tried this several times and I continually get the following error:
FATAL ERROR
[error]Expression : F
[error]Function : CXml::Load
[error]File : xrXMLParser.cpp
[error]Line : 75
[error]Description : ui\zone_map_3.xml
Only way I can fix it is by adding the zone map files again

Can I get a solution to this? As I posted a few days back, deleting the "Zone Map" files does not work and crashes the game.

If there is no solution, I'll just have to uninstall the mod, which I really don't want to do as I like all the other features. Thx.

By the way guys, I'm gonna update this for better compatibility with patch 1.3003. In the meantime I suggest deleting the scripts folder in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Lost Alpha\gamedata

Is this Mod also compatible with the 1.3003 patch? Or it's better to wait next version? thx in advance. I hope this mod makes it possible for me to use sunshadows, cause my gtx 660 should definitely handle them, but nonetheless have huge performance issues since the 1.3002 patch, also by turning them off. Maybe if the game would use all the vram my card has, would change something. It didnt change with the new official patch... I would also turn sunshadows off completely, but the hole game becomes very dark without them. Im a pcnoob so help is allways welcome ;)

Yeah sry i missunerstood, but dont u think that the thing that the game can use all the 4 gb vram may help against performanceissues? Btw is a NG required?

New game isn't required. You're right about the 4GB patch, it should improve performance and stability if you run high graphics settings.

thank you soooo much !

btw. any chance for a "changelog" *:D ?!

I'm always in for some surprises, but somehow I'm pretty eager on knowing what awaits me in this case *:D

which submods were used ? which weapons and suits were added *;D ?! Stuff like that, only if its not too much work, otherwise I'll be surprised so its fine either way *;D

Hmm are you sure you're in for some surprises? So far no real submods are used, though I'll be adding some when they come out. So right now it's really just a balance overhaul + equipment pack. You can see some of the equipment in action here.

Thank you for solving this problem! I'll put it in the mod description.

- EDIT: What's interesting is that the Thumbs.db file isn't in MY gamedata folder, even though the uploaded file here is in fact my gamedata folder. Where did it come from?

i don't have any idea, your mod is single one installed

i've looked now in mod's archive, in gamedata/textures/wpn exist a thumb.db file, so is not from my computer

The thumbs.db file is generated by Windows automatically if you open a folder in preview mode, so its a end-user issue that you didnt cause.

boredgunner your mod spoils artificial intelligence. People in the game react badly to attack the player. Yellow tint flashlight in the new patch becomes white. Also some weapons poorly configured. boredgunner твой мод портит искусственный интеллект. Люди в игре плохо реагируют на нападение игрока. Желтый оттенок фонарика в новом патче становится белым. Кроме того некоторое оружие плохо настроено.

Various Russian mods look here. Различные русские моды смотри здесь:

My mod doesn't change AI, AI is just that bad in Lost Alpha. And yes I changed the flashlight. I don't think any of the weapons are fully configured.

One weapon was dismissed sight. I do not remember what it was a weapon. Some things in the game in Russian have incorrect names: wpn_m1891, wpn_bizon, bandit_trenchcoat_name. And they have no description. The same problem with the game in Italian. When you play the English names of things and description are displayed normally. У одного оружия был смещен прицел. Я сейчас уже не помню какое это было оружие. Некоторые вещи при игре на русском языке имеют некорректные названия: wpn_m1891, wpn_bizon, bandit_trenchcoat_name. И у них отсутствует описание. Такая же проблема при игре на итальянском. При игре на английском названия вещей и описание отображаются нормально.

But anyway thanks for the mod. And I wish you success in the future development! Но все равно спасибо за мод. И желаю успехов в дальнейшем развитии!

That's right, I'll put into the description that it's English only until someone translates it. Thanks for the heads up.

Game crashes when entering a repair dialogue with AEK-971 in my inventory.
And the weapon selling prices are breaking the game balance.

Do u try to make the additional weapons upgradable too ?
That would be nice.

I didn't make them upgradable yet. I need to fix some bugs first, thanks for reporting another one. I just fixed it, looks like repair dialogue with the AEK-973S will also crash the game until I release this update.
