Hello, friends!

As of now, we are almost done with creating levels for ISOTD3, so we'll be concentrating on gameplay and quests soon. Apparently, the next few videos and screenshots will probably be dedicated to, say, anomalies, artefacts and quest elements.

And here's a presentation of the majority of our maps (with English subtitles included).

Enjoy watching!

As of now, according to this video (you can find it on the official discord for Stalker 2 : inside Info -> -youtube)
The project is globaly dead. They may do a short release with little content or maybe not... But main goals won't be achieved anyways.

They will make (or had made) public it's source (especially maps and scenario).

If someone is good at speeking Russian, can you confirm it ? YouTube traductions are awfull.

They are still alive, though not so much public-wise. Update on the status in the VK group by Dec 3rd:

«Greetings everyone, I contacted with one of the developers - Maks Vintorez and we had a talk about the "In Spite of the Death 3" mod.
I'm publishing this with his permission.

News about the In Spite of the Death 3: the mod's locations set has been completely re-thought resulting in some of the locations being dropped out. Those most likely will either be shared as a build with another team interested in them or uploaded for public use. All the remaining locations will be used to execute the mod's concept in a, so to speak, shortened way and following mini-mods releases, like it was with the vol. 1. Well, how much of desire the team will have to do so.»

- Is there a chance to participate in the mod's testing?
- There is, if it will be needed at the last stages of development.

- I see. So the Valley of Shadows will not be used in the vol. 3?
- Can't reveal the list of locations.

- I understand. What caused such silence? It's been almost 2 years.
- Developing has been progressing very slow and with breaks, lack of good news and the future seemed very unclear.

- Regarding the unused locations, will it be possible to have an access to them only after the mod's release?
- Nah. If the team decides to release it for public use, then before the release.

- Is it meaningless to ask about the release date?
- Yes indeed, nobody knows the date at all.

- What about the "Path in the Darkness", "Valley of Whispers" and other mods continuation in the vol.3? Or it's also unclear?
- Can't give you a solid answer. Something will be implemented, as far as possible. But the main priority is still the vol.3 of the "In Spite of the Death".

- Got it. What was the reason behind the lack of the Valley of Shadows in the vol.2? I recall, it was said on Ap-Pro that there will be a new location instead, however, there were only Swamps and, I think, Underground on release.
- There were difficulties with connecting it. Not enough technical knowledge, if you will.

- Does the team help with SGM and Apostate/Renegade (RU: «Проект "Отступник"») development?
- Not anymore. We have already finished what we were helping with.

- Did the enthusiasm exhaust itself?
- Mainly, yeah... Good times are, sadly, over.

- What year was the most productive so far?
- 2016, I believe.

- And how many people currently are working on the vol.3? I remember there was a long list of modders: you, Swamp Doctor, Geonesis, FantomICW...
- It's 5 people.

- Are you tired of it yet? Or it's more like a hobby?
- For those who are still in the team, it's the latter.

- By the way, is the VK group curated by anyone?
- I visit it... on rare occasions.

- What do you think, will you complete the mod?
- We definitely will not be capable of finishing everything that we've planned 5 years ago.

I agree! We deserve an update for at least following this mod. Cmon guys, show us some hope here.

They could at LEAST give a heads up and say that the mod is still alive or if it died, no need for feature updates or anything, just say if it's alive or not. Quite frustrating to wait for a mod and it may have been dead for a while...

Well, in case if anyone is still following the development of the mod or interested, there are some fresh news. One of the devs after the long silence just revealed a new location work in progress called "militari", Its an old abandoned complex near the city of chernobyl. Clicking on the link you can see some pictures.

Sadly there is no further update about the progress of the mod or any ETA about the release.
