This is the newest release of Narodnaya Solyanka (named "Narodnaya Solyanka 2016" by the developers). Unfortunately for the English Stalker community, the mod is available only in the Russian language.

I'm personally hand-translating the entire mod to English. This means that not only will it be in English, but it will not be some garbled machine-translated nonsense.

On-top of that, included will be a quality third-party weapon pack as well as many other edits (better textures, shaders, etc).

The foundation of the NS storyline has stayed the same, but some things have changed. Many of the quests will seem familiar to you if you've played NS before, but they will have a new twist to them giving a much needed breathe of fresh air into NS. Many of the NS maps have been recompiled in both it's geometry, light maps and AI grids. This has fixed many of the bugs plaguing the older NS branches (out of memory crashes, etc.).

There have been added quest branches to the CoP maps (which you can actually get to unlike some NS variants). Two new maps added onto the normal NS map expansion: Darkscape (taken from Lost Alpha) & Mine (exclusively made for this mod). Scripts have been optimized for fast loading. Secondary task givers are stronger than normal NPCs, but are not immortal. Ability to switch to different HUDs using the in-game menu.

Fixed the crashing issue I was having and was able to implement the weather mod back in. Found some bin files to increase buffer size to prevent out of memory crashes (like those commonly found when in the Swamps).

Are the newly added weapons from the NLC weapon pack?

Yes, they are taken from both NLC7 & New Arsenal.

Update: Had to remove the weather mod completely. It was causing a consistent crash in the Swamps that I could not fix. Will have to leave it out for now unless it gets patched.

Translations are still going smoothly. Currently translating all dialogue in Swamps.

Thanks for everyone who took the time to vote. Looks like the majority of you want me to wrap up translations before releasing. I will still do my best to appease both crowds on this topic. Thanks again!

SO there might be a chance of an early unfinished release?

Possibly, dependant on whats needed and what's secondary. For example, the dynamic news doesn't need to be translated asap because it won't affect the playthrough of the mod.

Hey, question:

Is NS 2016 newer than the latest Joint Pak 2? Pretty excited for this mod by the way.

Hey, yep, it's newer. JP2 came out in 2014.

Hi!

I have a big question, how do you plan to install the mod?

Do you need the ShoC base game or will it be "autonomous" as Joint Pak 2 "?

Hey! You will need SoC installed, it won't be an "all-in-one" like JP2 is. I don't have knowledge on how to create an auto-installer, but the zip will be designed for easy "drag-n-drop" installation on a fresh copy of SoC.

As for which version, I'm using 1.0006, however I read that 1.0004 also works. I would recommend using 1.0006 as that what I've been using.
