Features:

3D PDA

3D PDA

One of the most popular changes in Anomaly 1.5.1 since Beta 3 is the addition of a 3D PDA.

When holding the PDA in the lowered position, stalkers can track their position on the map while walking around. This will make it easier to navigate towards map markers like hidden stashes or mission objectives.

And to interact with the PDA it can be held closer to your eyes so it will fill almost the whole screen and the text on it is more readable. If you prefer the old style 2D PDA we even added an option to switch back to it, but real stalkers would not do that.

Story

Pripyat

"Lost to the Zone" Storylines has been added to 1.5 update, with its three installations:

  • 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 among the few 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.

And the new bonus story:

  • Part 4: Hollow Boundaries: play as a member of a foreign force to investigate and reveal the secrets of the Zone.

Additionally, you're free to assist your faction and complete their questlines.
The majority of quests will offer info about your targets before accepting, in addition to new types of quests to keep the player busy.
Every stage of the storylines will unlock a bonus faction for the player. A new set of achievements have been added to game as well.

Atmosphere

Atmosphere

Every single level has been reworked to help convey the feeling of an overgrown, relatively undisturbed Zone. The weather system is improved and expanded to offer variety and atmospheric feel.

Shaders and visual effects have received major improvements, such as the new gasmask with nice refractions, cracks react to light and raindrops. In addition to better tone mapping, water reflections, new wet surface shaders and more.

A-Life

Detector

The A-Life received major changes. For a start, stalkers travel more frequently and report their activity in the other parts of the Zone.

The Zone is constantly changing, so are the anomalies and mutants. Dynamic world items are everywhere around you, even in places you might not expect. Each playthrough will carry something different for you to look for. Explore the Zone, and you might find something nice during your journey.

Special characters and common stalkers offer more unique tasks, along with expanded dialogue. Stalkers can sell and buy items from traders, or even visit local mechanics to upgrade their favorite weapons. In addition: Loners, Mercs and a few others can offer escort services for a fee. Many special characters also have connections around the Zone: you can offer them a payment to bribe an enemy faction, temporarily preventing them from attacking on sight.

The disguise system has improved. Your equipment and behavior affects the way stalkers observe and remember you. And a new experimental feature will make stealth kills more viable to kill enemies sneakily.
Your rank and reputation counts. Exceptionally high or low values respectively will attract attention, possibly even from your enemies...

The amount of addons for this game surely is very impressive, as well as it seems to be a nice political tool to keep the game up on the local list - some could claim it deserves it, both the popularity and the rank - but from a practical standpoint, which is from a standpoint of a person who just wants to look up for some nice tweaks to have in the game, it is self defeating. One could think you guys write a book here and I do not think only of history. Nonetheless, keep doing what you are doing, there is no turning back now.

Maybe the devs do take inspiration from some of these addons, thinking about their next release, either of this game or some other.

Quick Release System for the backpack: it should maintain in the inventory anything that belongs in the quick access slots (default F1-F4) just like the ammo is maintained for guns.

For the minimap, probably a sheer compass with a clock could be an option, next to the whole minimap or no minimap thing altogether, depending on a player choice.

Dumb question. Is 1.5.2 the last version or are they gonna update it in the future ?

Most likely, there will be no updates, because the old development team has broken up, and the new one, which tried to make 1.6, decided to leave it just a platform for mods and as an independent project it is no longer of particular interest to the audience. In the official discord channel, you can read the reasoning of the authors of the mod that in the era of mega-assemblies GAMMA, REDUX, EFP, 1.6 output does not seem appropriate.

Вітаю, друзі! Підкажіть будь-ласка, чому редактор на зброю і броню не працює, тобто редагувати можна, але після збереження параметри не змінюються?
