Narodnaya Solyanka DMX is a very large merged modification for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl that combines the original 2009 Narodnaya Solyanka experience with the 2010 DMX 1.3.2 addon ... there has also been content recently added or modified from Refragger, Shidentora, Define, merv71, Chevyfreak, and John Coltrane [JC]
*NEW GAME MAY BE REQUIRED!!! Though you can try your luck and continue playing... Re-enables the use of flashlights on non-playable characters (and maybe zombies....) for the A.R.M. addon (which disabled all flashlights for "a bigger challenge" -chevyfreak). Report in comments if you have a crash or problem. Send me the log too. Updated for 9/18 (LATEST) version of ARM!!!
Same installation as always. Copy and paste the "gamedata" folder into your SHOC folder.
THIS IS ONLY IF YOU WANT FLASHLIGHTS BACK IN THE A.R.M. MOD!!! (INSTALL IT AFTER THE A.R.M. MOD OF COURSE)!!!
*Thank you DKZ for the assistance as I got tired of being killed in the dark.
If you wanna edit how often NPCs spawn with musical instruments or flashlights, install this addon and go to:
gamedate -> config -> gameplay -> character_items.xml ...
You will see this:
harmonica_a = 1, prob= 0.1 \n
guitar_a = 1, prob= 0.2 \n
device_torch = 1, prob= 1.0 \n
balalaika_a = 1, prob= 0.01 \n
ONLY change the numbers... so for example- "device_torch = 1, prob= 1.0 \n" means a 100% (1.0) of a flashlight spawning for every NPC. You can edit the 1.0 to any number between 0.0 to 1.0 for the rest.
