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.
Yes. It's another icon pack but BETTER™ Update 3 Compatible.
Ok. This is yet another Icon Pack for Anomaly. "But, Vyticoz, there's already like 3 of those. Why?" Good question. This pack addresses an issue that none of the others do. COLOUR CONTRAST. The icons in Anomaly look like they were dragged thru a field of sepia filters and then beaten to death with a brown crayon. They're fucking ugly and hard to see. I've remedied this with this addon by adding colour contrast as well as some saturation to make them stand out a little bit more without being obnoxiously bright. Observe:
This addon contains 6 different versions:
Vivid Colors - Enhances the original colors with greater contrast and saturation so that they're a little bit easier to see. Contains compatibility patches for Peach's Icons, QoL Icons, Shotgun Variety 2, Boomsticks and Sharpsticks, Shotgun Scopes and Sights and True Barrett M82 and MP7.
Vivid Icons - Contains the color corrections from Vivid Colors as well as custom item icons inspired by both Peach's Icon pack as well as the QoL Icons and ammo type icons for easier identification. I've also included an optional file so that junk items and artifacts display an icon to let you know which ones are junk, which tier the artifact is if it's a usable artifact, which ones are story mission critical and which ones will just kill you for having them. Not compatible with QoL or Peach's Icons but does contain compatibility for SV2, B&S, SS&S and True M82 & MP7.
Less Vivid Colors - Less pronounced color corrections than what is contained in Vivid Colors but still somewhat enhanced compared to vanilla. Contains the same compatibility patches as Vivid Colors.
Less Vivid Icons - Same as Vivid Icons only with the same less pronounced color corrections that is contained in Less Vivid Colors. Also contains the Optional Artifact Icons. Same compatibility as Vivid Icons.
To install it just pick the version you want, along with any compatibility patch you might need and extract that gamedata folder into the Anomaly gamedata folder or if you're using JSGME (which I highly recommend) simply extract the main version folder into your MODS folder.
UPDATE v1.1: Included compatibility with Shotgun Scopes and Sights and True Barrett M82 and MP7. Includes a less vivid option for those that found the original color correction a bit too pronounced.
