First of all, this is a really nice mod and I'm enjoying it so far (yet to finish it). But there are some bugs which should be fixed.

- There is no autosaves whatsoever. Luckily, I never forget to quicksave but here I must do it as often as I can. Like, just before entering the freezing outside section, there must be an autosave but there's none.
- Secondly, in all of the outside maps you can easily get out of the map or get stuck if you fall down in some pit but don't die. As an example, in the freezing section, I was healing myself near the barrel. Then an avalanche came and blocked the path. I just surfed up the wall and climbed over the blockage.
- Also, right before there was a small cave with a can of fuel and a generator. What was that for? I tried to pick it up but no luck.
- I got stuck during a levelchange when I got into the truck. Without any autosvaes and if the player never quicksaved, this makes player starting everything over.
- Then, a quest "find ventilation plans". I found this disk by absolute luck! It looks exactly like any other disk, except it can be picked up. And there's no indication that it was imporant. Literally on the other table are two exactly the same disks which can't be picked up. A small note to that quest, the doors in this room are suddenly opened by USE button, while all other doors before were opening on touch.
- I wasn't able to find the secret passage myself, had to look into the walkthrough. Unfortunately the map didn't make enough sense to me :(
- Entrance to the upper deck of the ship doesn't make sense. It's hidden like a secret passage in the dark corner.
- The navigation inside the ship was a bit confusing.
- The building up in the valley doesn't make any value. It just stands there lit by the green lamp, and there's nothing around it. I wasn't able to figure out how to progress further from there, so again I just surfed up the slope and jumped across the mountain to get to the green crate.

This might seem like a wall of text, but to sum it up, the mod just needs clipbrushes, autosaves and a better indication of valuable items/passages.
Overall it's a really good mod and I rather enjoyed it. Good luck.

Not a bad mod, but certainly has its issues. The means to progress is not always entirely clear and the small scale of some areas make navigation a pain. You get snagged on small details when trying to move around and it makes the combat awkward at times.

Played it through on Hard and had to use Godmode in order to survive one part of the freezing section (There was a handful of medkits right before, but that only got me to 70HP and I died a few feet from my goal...)

Not sure why you included so many files that were not used in the mod... The download size could probably be halved by removing unused models, sounds and other assets.

In spite of all that, I like the setting and the use of new textures and what I can only assume was a unique story line with custom voice acting, but sadly I'm not a Russian speaker so most of it was lost on me. :)

Hi! Thank you for your feedback and detailed criticism! In the cold location, there are points (a tent with a stove and a barrel of fuel) where you can warm up (replenish health). I tested this map many times to make sure that the player using all the means on the map could pass the location without cheats. on it, you need to be careful and periodically return to the heating points) unfortunately, I forgot to test in heavy mode. I will thoroughly double-check this point, and if it is impossible to pass this location, I will correct this error )

Yeah, I should mention that as soon as I got to the tent I was fine :)

However, from the very start of this area, there is a cave at the half-way point that offered no healing (as far as I can tell.) I got to the small cave with 35HP and then I had to reach the tent with that. Every attempt to get to the tent from that cave, I was just short when my health ran out. I used Godmode at the last second just to get into the tent and start the fire.

I expect the main issue was that I wasn't entering the cold area with 100HP from the start. Maybe have a healing campfire right at the start to introduce the healing mechanic? :D

Looking pretty decent, I like that mapping, but maybe an article would be great imo

Keep it up!

I agree, these maps seem incredibly comfy.
