Back to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - November 2021 Update

Hello everyone. Here comes another news about Back to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
Let’s begin.

Render:

First of all, let’s talk about render. At this moment, we have fixed many bugs and issues with graphics. You can see the result in these screenshots:

Mil   r1

Gameplay:

In addition to graphics, we continued to improve the gameplay. Now, if you change the outfit of your hero, texture of arms will be changed too!

Besides, we have improved AI of stalkers and mutants. For example, we have restored old mutant abilities: pseudodog can attack player with psi-strike, the controller can run away from a stronger opponent if he is in danger. Also, stalker can now be zombified by controller. After being zombified, stalkers will go crazy and become enemies to the player. This is influenced by several factors:

  1. Rank of the NPC
  2. Equipment of the NPC
  3. Time spent in zombie mode

Stalkers who fell into a trance can still be saved if the mutant is killed in time.

Maps

We do not forget about locations either. At the moment, more than half of the game levels are already being actively developed by level-designers. We are trying to create new interesting places and re-create the atmosphere of the Old Good S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

When development of the Engine will be finished, large part of the team will be directed to create new quests for the plot

At the end, I would like to share the working renders of the new weapons:

Hope this mod won't die in development. I've been waiting a few months for the release date.

Let's hope this mod recreating old build content won't meet the same fate as Paradise Lost mod, got my fingers crossed for this one to see the release day..

In development 2 versions of the plot

Why not focus on just a single good one instead of two? This will take even more time to develop and there are plenty of of mods similar to this that end up in development hell and not get released or just get released with a convoluted plot like Lost Alpha. :\
