Appreciated!

Feedback is certainly welcome and needed for balance reasons and any potential issues that may occur which I may have missed that aren't already included inside the known issues part of the Description.

Roger that, apologies, been replying to someone on my own addon page and editing the message so it sounds exactly how I wanted the message to come out like lol! Gonna boot up S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Anomaly now and see how the ol' stash thingy ma jig comes along! I hope you don't mind by the way but in the comments section of my addon page here on ModDB, I included your addon amongst the list of addons I have installed on my S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Anomaly.

Do not fret my good man, I won't upload said content as my own, if anything, I'm actually trying to promote other people's addons I deem, realistic, fun and immersive. Nothing gets me more than a completely finished immersive/realistic/fun game/mod. And even then, it still requires perfecting even when it looks finished! Ha!

Anyway, gonna get to the testing now, speak soon fella! ;)

No worries at all!

Currently working on a balancing method and have got a good plan set out that I'm currently testing that seems to be working decently, albeit still requiring more testing itself.

And the mod is public domain and everyone are free to use it as they please. I only ask a link back to the original. Otherwise it is absolutely fair game. :D

Still I appreciate the kind words. It needs a lot of work. Both in functionality and compatability which are issues I'm working on currently.

Apologies dude, I will start testing properly now, I was ******* around a little bit upgrading a ton of rifles, shotguns, pistols, outfits and gas masks that I looted and then my Anomaly decided to up and crash when Duty decided to start shooting their random npc mechanic for like no apparent reason. So tried to delete them all in debug and it crashed, 55 minutes game time down the pan, all because of that fookin' war I had where the Mercenary forward base is! To be honest, it was my own fault, even before I loaded in there were just corpses everywhere. Gonna get out of the Wild Territory now, stop dawdling and get out and about! I'll keep an eye out for any stashes on my way past the barrier doing the main quest. Will hopefully have something decent to report in the next hour!

EDIT: Never mind, my Anomaly decided to drop in a tempsave somehow. So I have only lost out on what... Five minutes game time? Thank god for that either way! Anyways, onwards and upwards! Be in touch soon fella! :)

is there an option to not have it include only artifacts? the clothes and weapons option conflict with other mods.

What kind of addons does this mod conflict with? SSS? Boomsticks and Sharpsticks? Trader Complete? I seriously hope it doesn't conflict with any of those major addons. I love the sound of this addon I'd be gutted if the addon breaks because of one of those three. :(

Sadly due to the way the game and stash manager builds spawn lists, I had to edit all the weapon.ltx's and outfit.ltx's specifically to give them tiers. Sadly this isn't avoidable unless I specifically want it to not spawn weapons or armors.

Until I find a method that would work around this and allow me to let this mod function exactly how I want it too.

I'm still looking into various options for making it as compatible as possible. For the most part, installing this mod first, then installing other mods afterwards will allow your other mods take top priority and all you lose are whichever weapons or armor files are overwritten. Providing the treasure manager file remains intact you'll still get the other features. :)

Well, I have forty two addons installed man. And when the forty second one went in. Being this Stash Overhaul addon. Well, it didn't ask me to overwrite anything? It put in fresh files. So I'm not sure if compatibility will be an issue yet? I'll keep playing the game further.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

The only files that are edited are the treasure manager in

gamedata\configs\items\settings

And the files like w_ak101.ltx inside

gamedata\configs\items\weapons

and files like o_sunrise.ltx inside

gamedata\configs\items\outfits

Trader overhauls etc won't overwrite these as they don't touch the same files, providing the mods themselves don't also touch guns, and Bangsticks mod might use seperate files for the weapon additions.

It should be compatible with a large amount of mods, including the huge popular sound mod. JSRS or similar? As they only edit weapon_sounds.ltx and the SR file which I do not touch.

Time shall tell. :P

I do not recall seeing many mods that edit weapon or outfit files nor the treasure manager script.

Sadly I've yet to find a way to implement a tier system outside of editing each and every suit and weapon, installing this mod first, then installing thers ontop will allow those to function fine, and this will still fucntion mod wise albeit missing some parts of the loot lists, but will still get partial functionality.

Thank you kindly!

Balancing will be a tad off, so beware of that, and only new stashes will read from my new stash manager scripts just as a heads up. So may take a bit in a running game for you to see any changes. :D

If you have any feedback/comments or issues please let me know. I'd love to hear your opinions on balance and such. :)

Sort of, it is more that to stop you getting a Gauss rifle or a full Custom .50Cal Barrett sniper rifle or a Monolith Nosorog suit I segmented all the weapons and outfits into tiers.

It sounds a lot more RPG than it actually is. Balancing still needs work as depending on your luck you can get some really powerful gear early on and I have a lot of room for expansion to the mod itself.

If you have any feedback or critisim or generally issues please let me know. I'd love to hear it. :)

Hey Steelhawk28 , great mod. Could you help me out a bit as I'm trying to in a way balance, as I like to go for a more hardcore vibe? See I'm editing the treasure_manager. But I'm still getting crazy armor and weapons. For example, I edited the weapons something like this chance of 3, impact 100, Tier 1: , 1 , 1 Tier 2: , 0.8 , 125, etc. If you could, maybe clarify how can I achieve a more realistic/hardcore balance. Thanks.

Hey, I`d also like to go for a much harder balance. The mod works great but every 3rd stash had mid tier armors and this is just a bit too easy for me.

Dave10156 & Holysnout

Agreed, balancing is much more up in the air at the moment and is something I'm slowly working on. V1 was more built around the notion of concept and V1.1 was focusing mostly on the implementation of the new teir overhaul specifically built for this mod. The next version I hope to have more balancing worked out, and along with a file that will explain to people how to tweak it to their own tastes also.

If either of you wish for more indepth discussion around tweaking the settings to your own likings, feel free to shoot me a PM or similar and I'll help you both reach a goal you'd prefer difficutly wise with the mod so you aren't sat waiting for V1.2 :)

The chance to get outfits out of stashes is way too high, got a merc scout suit, SSP Ruby, and a Nomad suit out of 1 stash in the Dark Valley. I really like that I start looking for stashes more instead of skipping them but the amount of outfits in them is way too high. I think outfits should be rare to very rare tier item in stashes.

Quite right, the balance is still something I'm working on to try and find the sweet spot.

May I ask was the stash a common stash or a rare stash? (Green or purple Icon)

I didn't have the stash location found, just randomly checked a stash location I knew of. It was the stash between rostok and dark valley level transition if that matters.

Very likely happened to pull the rare stash contents then for the prespawned stashes in the world. Currently they all pull from the same tables (common or rare). Balancing should slowly ease this issue. But I have a few ideas how I can get around this.

I can't open the file ...

"The archive is either in unknown format or damaged"

I tried downloading multiple times and different mirrors. All the same error.
I should just be able to open it with WinRAR, right?

First time I've seen this issue reported, It must be something your end. But yes Winrar should work just fine, however it could be worth testing with 7zip and seeing if that can extract the archive, if not then it must be getting corrupt upon download.

Incredibly unbalanced. Not 5 minutes into a new game in Rostok, I found 3 suits and an artifact. I now have enough money to be in mid-game.

This needs some serious tweaking.

No, I wouldn't imagine it does, this was built using purely Anomaly mechanics and systems, I'm doubtful that Dead Air runs a similar set up specifically compatible with this.

Hi there, I'm not really interrested by adding to stash, well I'm still early game so maybe later if really I'm unsatisfied by the loot ^^ But I'm wondering, what is that stash limit ? Is the game stoping the player from making "too much" stash ? Or am I understanding it all wrong ? ^^ If I'm not, what's that limite "vanilla" ?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I don't think the game limits player made stashes if that is the question. But I honestly never used more than 2 of them in any game I've played of Anomaly so far so I couldn't tell you for sure.

The balancing, like you said many times, is quite off. I was wondering if lowering the max weight of the stashes would work as a temporary solution.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Steelhawk28

Is this with V1.2? Rare stashes are still unbalanced to a degree, sadly I can't change that much without changing a lot of code around as world box spawns are dictated from the same tables, I'm looking into various methods, 1.2 should for the most part keep it semi balanced. I have many plans for 1.3, but time is short and the plans are fairly long term additions to create.

But yes, lowering the weight of stashes will help ease that issue. Or making the weight impact of the catergories higher so that less points can be spent on those parts. Let me know how you get on, and if you need any help please feel free to send me a message and I'll see if I can help you.

I am currently testing out lowered weights, lowered stash tiers and increased impact of some items. Seems to be a bit better, however, the stashes still spawn a lot of bullets, meds and drink/food. Will probably need to up the impact of those even more and maybe even reduce the chance.

Just want to say this is an excellent mod that really amps up the treasure hunting aspect of the game. Balancing is something you say you're already working on, so I won't go on about that. I look forward to doing more runs of the game with this mod installed.

Some problems I noted during my playthrough, mostly to do with loot bias. During my playthrough I found around 8 to 10 tier 2 tool kits and 2 to 3 tier 1 and 3 tool kits, and ammunition was a bit too plentiful and varied, I would personally tone down the variety of ammo but keep the ammount about the same for non removed ammo types, finding a stash with 90 5.45 EP rounds seems plausible but finding those 90 EP rounds right next to 7 other types with matching quantities is alot. Everything was plentiful at the beginning but towards the endgame stash quality seemed to drop drastically. this might be a problem on my end tho.

also I suspect that this mod broke the "curious stashes" you get from visitting all the locations. they were total crap and a disapointment. Oh, and the guns in stashes are in really bad condition most of the time as you know.

other than those I found this to be almost a musthave mod for an enjoyable experience, really love it, keep up the good work!

I think i figured out why the weapons are all spawning in low quality

When I look at a weapon from a stash, most of the parts will be at 1% and one part will be something reasonable, like 35 or 93.

How do you do the randomization for the weapon quality?

Not sure if's a bug but I have found around 6 advanced tools and 0 basic tools and 0 export tools from like 50 stashes. Seems like Tiering system might a bit messed up. Fresh installation too.

Hey Steelhawk28, thank you for the addon! It runs fine on my game.

I'm using version 1.5, with hotfix 8 and the 1.4 update, with Generic Mod Enabler, version 2.6.0.157.

I'm a big fan of Stalker, and rediscovered the game after so many years. And I keep finding these gems, like Call of Chernobyl before and now, Anomaly and its add-ons. Yours, it helps with the immersion, at least for me. So thanks again!
