Important Notes:

  • 1.5 requires a new game and is NOT compatible with old saves!
  • The Beta will reset all your settings, set them again after starting the game.
  • Don't install any form of add-ons for 1.5, only "Back to the Root (Models)" and "English Voices" work fine for now.
  • To start Lost to the Zone storylines, ask stalkers around for any new information they know. You might find someone who can give you important leads.

Features:

Anomaly 1.5 is the biggest update yet, It includes a lot of new features and major changes

Story mode


"Lost to the Zone" Storylines have been added to Anomaly 1.5 with it's 3 parts:

  • Part 1: Living Legend: a famous stalker has returned to the Zone. Pursue him in order to obtain his invaluable knowledge.
  • Part 2: Mortal Sin: a sinister faction emerges from obscurity to take over the Zone. You are the only one who can stop them.
  • Part 3: Operation Afterglow: the Zone attracts a lot of attention. However, some people believe that its many secrets are best kept hidden.

The Story mode now includes "Lost to the Zone" storylines, along with "Mysteries of the Zone" and DRX Questlines. The player is free to play any of them whenever they want.

Major quests won't be given to you upon starting a game, you need to ask for it.

Warfare

Warfare has become a part of Anomaly as an optional mode. It simulates a war between different factions in a dynamic fashion.

The mode lets the player assume control over their faction. This is done at run time, and the player can choose between either the dynamic expansion system or the manual expansion system. The dynamic expansion system will adapt to any bases you captured in manual expansion mode when you switch back.

With an offline combat simulator, squads can intercept other squads arbitrarily, so the zone will be much more dynamic and the large scale war will rage at the far corners of the map.

Atmosphere


The engine received a lot of improvements, and many new features has been added such as HUD inertion and FXAA support.

The weather cycles have been completely revamped by meatchunk to achieve better atmosphere and quality. And many improvements are done to the surrounding environment such as trees swing in storms, glowing anomalies, dynamic rain and more.

A-Life


The A-Life received major changes. Stalkers travel more frequently and report their activity in the other parts of the Zone. The disguise system has improved, your equipment and behaviour affects the way stalkers observe and remember you.

The mutant spawns in underground levels is reworked for more dynamic encounters, each playthrough will carry something different for you.

Every time you start a new game, the spawned items around the Zone will be different. Their availability depends on the chosen difficulty.

Special characters and common stalkers offer more unique tasks, along with expanded dialog.

Sometimes you want to pass through some area without worrying about an enemy squad camping there. Many special characters have connections around the zone, talk to them and provide a payment to bribe an enemy faction temporarily.

you can ask natural squads to join your company and provide protection for a fee, the service is offered for a day or two. The escort squad will decline if you travel to abounded locations or monolith areas.

On high ranks or really bad reputation, you'll attract enough attention. Your enemies will put a bounty on your head and send elite squads after you.

Inventory and Items


The inventory has been expanded with more item slots. In addition, a lot of changes have been done to the item system: all devices operate by their own batteries, you can swap batteries between devices.

Backpacks are essential to increase the carry weight while equipped. And bolts are limited on hardest difficulty.

PDAs found on corpses can be viewed by the player to dig the messages inside. Messages related to the dead stalker can be about anything, search for any important info you can find.

A new set of headlamps and PDAs with special features are available. In addition, a new 3 detectors are added for quests and general-usage:

The Geiger Counter is now a detector with its own model. Using it will show the radiation value on the HUD. It operates under 3 modes to show readings in different ways.

The RF Receiver is able to catch signals coming from different radio sources. Along with the Anomaly Measurement device, both are used for different quests.

Let's hope the Anomaly mod makers avoid the bad gameplay decisions seen in most Russian STALKER mods (drawn-out quests wasting the players time, grinding, unfair difficulty balancing, Misery-style gameplay etc.) - and also being able to make a great looking game/mod, like Dezowave did with Lost Alpha. 2009 is a long time ago....

From what Ive seen , looks like we will have three more factions in Warfare - Sin , Renegades and UNISG / ISG .

Pretty awesome if you ask me ...

And check the raindroplets effect :

Sick .

I love the effect, but I must admit that the speed of the drops moving combined with the size and amount gave me a slightly disconcerting feeling. But oh well, Vutner seemingly stated that those settings are controllable/editable?

Also, out of sheer curiosity: Where did you get the info about the new warfare factions?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

The_Preacher

Yep , all editable .

For new factions , I saw them on Warfare feedback thread on Anomaly Discord . Plus, Tronex added new Warfare UI overview - similar to that in Clear Sky .

Unsure where the new factions starts and traders should be , though ...

Thats good they finally add some interface for Warfare, no more manualy checking and assuming other factions power (btw that probaly only feature which I liked in CS, apart from "new" locations).

Also, that new factions can be unlocked by progressing in story mode.

Yep , and faction unlocking is a good idea - will give some sense of progression and serve as additional "reward" .

The Warfare UI in CS was one of my favorite things - I would check from time to time how factions stand at the moment , and sometimes after bigger attacks on factions done by me ( like Renegades in Swamp ) . But now , the Warfare for Anomaly is much expanded compared to vanilla CS one .

In my opinion , I would put Renegades in Anomaly even as a bit stronger than usual Bandits ( Renegade Exo already serves as proof to that ) and because of their simply badass badge , lol . Sin is basically some hybrid of Bandits and Monolith . UNISG should be technologically advanced , on top with Monolith . Basically , UNISG would be some kind of "more militarized and advanced version of Ecologists" .

Really nice mod, with, weirdly really good damage balance that somehow fit to my annoying needs. I said weirdly because most of mods just try to hard to mimic Misery that it self is really bad made mod(its not hard, its just annoying with fake hardness made via stats not gameplay it self) and thanks to it you dont need to play it like doom/quake, progressing trough game just for better gear that deal more damage. You can really get fist gun and take care of it and it will take care of you. Just…
