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.


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 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.


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.


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.

Hey stalkers, care to give some help pretty please? I was wondering what was the difference between Warfare on and off: when disabled, do the factions remain "static", not engaging enemy forces but mutants that wander around, or is there still some movements like squads and the like attacking each other? Do they respawn if, say, you wipe out a campment/base? To me, with Warfare off, I would have the feeling that the game is less dynamic, that factions never enter in contact with one another and that danger only comes from mutants that travel here and there or from other stalkers only if you get too close to their base. Am I right?

If I understand what you're saying, I suppose a good way to look at it is warfare is like CS (Based on faction wars) and Free play is like SoC/CoP (based on story mode) squads will still attack each other but they won't try and invade other bases. If you kill an important character from an enemy faction then they won't respawn, but squads will. If you want the most faction action hang around the Army Warehouses, every faction will spawn there, with exceptions being the special ones. Hopefully that answers your question

It's pretty funny, something this mod has taught me is that the best place to hide something from a veteran stalker is right in the middle of the floor!

After 12 years of scouring every nook and cranny, it's the last place I ever think to look. :)

One of the military uniforms is bugged and looks extremely off. Any one have a fix? Currently using 1.5

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Military HD uniform has glitched shadow texture
If you join Discord, you will know that HD model texture is no longer support and 1.5 Final are concern to not use it

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…
