Huge congratulation to releasing this mod! Previous version was great, but this is way better. This was definitely the best S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod released last year (talking about Russian version here).

Btw: Great feature list!

Hi, I am having problems running the mod.

I have downloaded all parts and the patch, I have installed the mod and then the patch on my stalker folder.
The launcher works fine, when I launch the game it crashes with error on the xrcore_gsc.dll, can you please assist?

Do you installed it standalone or on your installed SHoC game?
This mod is standalone and do not require original game - you need to install it in separate folder.

How did you manage to get blood marks on the bodies of humans and monsters? Did you create a script for that? I'm trying to do this for Call of Chernobyl so I can upload it as an addon.
