Anomaly is a standalone S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod powered by an x64 version of the X-Ray engine. Starting with version 1.5.0 Anomaly uses a custom engine build called the XRay-Monolith engine. After almost one year of development of the Anomaly 1.5.0 update, the mod continues its way on expanding and adding new features while maintaining a high level of quality and replay value.

Description

Drink water, go and sleep for 10 hours, weake up and lose health of dehydratation. This is over now. A new age of dehydratation has arrived! This mod rebalances thirst and water intake completely! Including losing water while bleeding!

I was annoyed how often you are required to drink and how ineffective water sources are in the game, to the point I just disabled the thirst. Hopefully this mod will change that. Going to check it out!

The water system is not a bad thing in Anomaly, but it might have some issues, compared to mods where you do not have any system like this.

I tried to address the issue. As long as you are not sprinting everywhere, and try to handle combat situations carefully, you won't have issue having enough water with my addon.

Lets say, we are having some good ideas with one of the devs, actually he has good ideas, I might just tag along, but it might happen in the next version of Anomaly only, because of some limitations in the current version. I do not know yet if it will happen, but I will try it definitely.

Actually, you can, because they were designed to be compatible with each other :D I will release stuff still on the weekend. I have been working on a lot of things for months, and I got some free time this week to make them ready for release.

Yes. When I started making them, I made them for my entertainment, to be able to enjoy the Zone the way I want it. Then I decided, that I will share it with the community, there might be people who would like them. I would shoot myself quite on the leg, if they would not be compatible with each other :D

I love the idea/logic of the mod. but I think the thirst from damage is a bit too severe.
Fought two snorks, 1 hit, needed to drink twice, got hit again, another two drinks.
4 drinks of water in about a minute from getting scratched twice seems a bit much. (especially since I'm using mods/settings that make good food/water expensive :/)
Or maybe I'm lookingat it the wrong way. If others provide similar feedback, maybe consider an optional version with about half the bleed dehydraton?

If it is too much for you, you can modify the following line in the "txr_thirst.script" file:

local arszi_bleeding_thirst = 50

Lowering the value to 25 would lower the thirstiness increase while bleeding by half. I balanced the values for the water prices of unmodded Anomaly. Also based on your description, you must have really heavy bleeding... Your rupture protection is not high enough to fight snorks effectively at the moment.

I agree with Jakkar that you shouldn't ever deal with dehydration in the middle of combat regardless of armor. It should mostly be a slow killer that mostly kills you if ignored, similar to radiation.

Dehydratation gives you damage over time, I just modified its value to 1/10th of the original. Sleeping 10 hours could kills you before.

In combat, you deal with blood loss, which leads to dehydrataton. The more blood you lose, the more sever it gets. It is possible to bleed out.

I made an update, where you can apply one of the two optional settings. One of them halves thirst gain by bleeding, the other one make thirst gain by blood loss to 1/5th of the original value.

Initial experience not promising, though I've loved your other contributions. Loaded my save after installation, took a /single/ heavy leaping strike from a Lurker which dropped 90% off my health through my damaged Predator suit. Bleeding was immediate and severe - killed it with two quick 153 rounds, hit my bandage hotkey, but had in five seconds gotten to the red zone of thirst already.

Drinking a can of my better water put me into the yellow zone. I've never even *had* red thirst before.

The impact of bleeding should not induce catastrophic, health-harming dehydration within a few seconds.

While typing this I noticed the most recent comment by a Guest account mentioned a similar experience, and you responded 'you're not well protected enough to fight Snorks', but is that really a fair assessment of the player's experience of Anomaly? We can't pick what we find, or what finds us, especially as a beginner or with a random starting position. We don't choose our luck in having our armour damaged by an anomaly, even as an experienced stalker. Loss of rupture protection/severe bleeding is simply part of the game, and it seems unrealistic and quite strange that your default settings induce overwhelming and instantaneous dehydration in the middle of combat.

Now, occasionally I do wander with a sustained bleed because I have lingering effects that slowly reduce it, or simply because I can endure it while I stagger to the nearest trader because I've run out of medical supplies. In that case slowly getting more thirsty than usual would make perfect sense, but your current default is a little crazy.

I'll be reducing the local arszi_bleeding_thirst to 5 for now, and see how that feels. Getting thirsty and hungry faster after losing blood makes a lot of sense, but not to a degree that could get you killed before combat is even over.

Nonetheless, thank you for your work - your other mods have enhanced my experience a lot =)

I did not mean the snork thing offensive, I just wanted to state it as a fact, without any intended harm.

I intended this mod to be realistic, like getting an artery bleeding is not fun in real life eaither. But it is difficult do balance it out regarding what other addons people might use. Water is a sensitive topic in Anomaly, as I understood reading the comments.

UPDATE: I supplied two optional versions for my addon!

There is an optional version, in thirst gain by bleeding is halved, and one, in thirst gain by bleeding is one fifth of the original value.

If you wish to use these modified values, download the addon again, and the compressed file will contain them!

Further instructions are in the description and in the read_me.txt file.

I uploaded a new addon to (partly) support this one's issues with new game with factions who start deep in the zone:

I'm not having problem with default Anomaly thirstiness system. Last night I was thinking that I was carrying even too much water because I often find it on corpse and I tried to think a way to decrease this possibility. If you have to make this even more easier disable thirstiness completely, but I love this Anomaly feature that I din't find in any other mod (and I asked for, eg. playing Misery).

Why go out of your way to check a mod out that you seemingly didn't like only to tell other people how you PlAyEd MiSeRy and how you like default Anom. Thirst lvls? I mean come on man...

Eh no, this addon is named "THIRST OVERHAUL", I thought was something about making it harder. When I saw what was it in real, I commented my thoughts. Is that wrong for you? It's all about critics and freedom of speak.

The thirst you get from running is insane. I’m a firefighter, and even after doing loads of work in a suit specially designed to be as insulative as possible, which has our body heat build up inside big time, I’m still not able to be THAT thirsty.

If it is too much, modify the line:

local arszi_thirst_run = 1.5

to

local arszi_thirst_run = 1
Or less.

It is not easy to balance out everything. In the game sprinting can be exploited big time.

Thanks for the mod! I've installed it, everything alright. I'm using version 1.5, with hotfix 8 and the 1.4 update, with Generic Mod Enabler, version 2.6.0.157.

Fourth or fifth mod of yours I've installed! Keep it coming, they're of great quality!
