What is this mod?

Simply put this is a mod collection rather than a mod itself, I've grown tired of reinstalling mods and fiddling with them until I can find a working setup that doesn't crash five minutes into the game. So I have built this, ready out of the box installer that will install all my favorite mods, ready to be played without interruption.

Before installing this mod:

1. Ensure you have a fresh install of CoP with no other mods

2. This mod installs various options automatically from the following:

  • - Atmosfear 3
  • - Absolute Nature 4.04
  • - Absolute Structures
  • - These three include texture overhauls
  • - Arsenal Overhaul 3.1 With Pripyat Reborn
  1. PR (Pripyat Reborn) Options Included: (Not limited too)
  2. - Primarily Enhanced AI
  3. - AI can use equipment such as Medkits and Bandages
  4. - AI will adapt to situations better, use cover etc.
  5. - AI is better at fighting mutants and the player (grouse kicks the ass out of bloodsuckers)
  6. - Enhanced and Optimized A-Life Simulation
  7. - Newer and better dialog
  8. - Much more
  1. AO Options Included:
  2. - Hostile Bandits 2
  3. - More Realistic Damage
  4. - Character Spawn Changes
  5. - Player Spawn Changes
  6. - Collect Mutant Parts from Dead Mutants
  • - Dades LootMoney from corpses Mod
  • - Sell all Damaged weapons (price scales AO included)

3. This mod is best installed on an SSD to reduce loading times and stuttering

4. This mod will require a modern computer to run, options such as reducing A-Life and in-game graphics options will help with FPS issues

5. The current build of this mod has been tested but not tested thoroughly, it should be stable please report any issues that you may encounter out there in the Zone

6. This installer replaces many files under your STALKER folder, it is recommended to back these files up in the case that it becomes unstable (all files under stalker directory and the Bin and Gamedata Folders)

7. Installer MUST be pointed to Stalker-COP.exe folder location/install for the mod to work out of the box


How to install?

Simply run the installer and then point the directory to where the EXE of stalker is located, the file path should look like this at the end:

...\steamapps\common\Stalker Call of Pripyat

and not like this:

...\steamapps\common\Stalker Call of Pripyat\Stalker Call of Pripyat

If you do install it to the wrong place you can just copy and paste it to the correct directory. Don't forget to backup your files and Bin and Gamedata folder if you want easy uninstall.

For Non-Steam?

When installing double check the target directory. Installer adds Call of Pripyat automatically select parent directory, ex: "x:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\" for Steam installation or "x:\GOG Games\" for GOG installation.

X = drive letter where you copy of CoP is installed.

^-----------------------------------Give thanks to Lol3r_86 for this-----------------------------------^

How to un-install?

Delete all the files under the Stalker CoP directory and then delete the folders Bin and Gamedata, then you can remove the program from the control panel uninstall software section. As it stands it cannot be uninstalled automatically for reasons I do not yet know. You can then use Steam to verify the game and re-download the missing files or you can save a backup of the game files to copy back in.

Why these mods?

I don't like mods that drastically change the way the game works, I think STALKER as a base game is near to flawless as a game, I feel no need to adjust large scale mechanics; no sleeping bags, no drug running or extra factions, no expanded open map, no major (*cough*MISERY*cough*) and unrealistic amps in difficulty. Just a pretty, smoothly running, vanilla STALKER with some much-needed quality of life adjustments.

Isn't this a waste of time?

K, I mean... Saves you time downloading... And installing... And setting up and ensuring compatibility... And testing for early crashes. Up to you man.

Will you add more mods?

The major issue is compatibility, it can be such a pain to ensure the game will run without crashing because the weapons you have don't like the texture on that wall so for the most part no. However, if you believe that there are some much-needed mod additions that would aid the game please inform me and I'll take a look.

I'm having weird problems in yanov, npcs getting stuck outside, zombies spawing inside the station, bandits shooting others npcs inside the station too, etc

The ai is based on the Pripyat Reborn Addon for Arsenal Overhaul mod, im not the author for these mods. I know its possible to change the emissions to stop from turning peole into zombies which can stop zombies from getting into the station. The bandits are all hostile by default in this mod, mostly cause i hate them and think their pricks. If you download the original Aresanal Overhaul mod they have an addon to turn off hostile bandits.

Otherwise for general strange ai behaviour i cant say much sorry. Vision distance should be uncahged from the atmospfear and absoulute nature mods.

Yes I know that pripyat reborn is from team epic and never finished it, there are several bugs like this in yanov and is a same because in zaton map I haven't found many bugs, works well in general, but these ai bugs are annoying, like duty squad that storm the duty warehouse held by freedom, they never shoot each other and other bugs.
I very like these companion mod, but the standalone version from alundaio not work, in yanov npcs get stuck in idle postion

the ai is so bad fighting mutants, sometimes they get killed easily by a bunch of blind dogs or flesh, without even hitting them, and with snorks they get killed without any chance.

Another thing, i'm having a hard time with packs of dogs and pseudodogs, they always attack on sight even when they are far from me, is very frustrating when you get killed by 2 packs of dogs coming from nowhere

So the installer is not giving me the option to choose where it installs to, how do I fix this?

If it does this you need to find where it had originally installed and delete the files/folders it put in there. Then remove the program from the control panels remove programs list. At this rate im going to make my own installer for this so hopefully this issue will be fixed soon.

Download the Arsenal Overhaul 3.1 mod from the ModDB site. Inside that rar there is a folder called options, in there there is a hostile bandits add-on including an uninstall for the hostile bandits. Simply copy the gamedata folder from the uninstall and replace yours with it overwriting as needed. A new game should not be needed. Report any crashing.

Downloaded A03.1 and cannot find folder named options, just one marked atmosfear_options, one labeled nxr_options and one labeled optional addons, none of which contain what you described. I'm sorry if I'm being a little thick but can you offer some more guidance?

Hey man no problem at all, it's what I'm here for, besides I had to wake up sometime today. ;P
1. Download the Aresenal_Overhaul_3.1.rar file (not the Pripyat reborn version)
2. Open the .rar and follow this structure:
- Aresenal_Overhaul_3.1
- Optional Addons
- Hostile Bandits 2
- Uninstall
3. Inside that uninstall, there is a gamedata folder, extract that to your Stalker Cop directory and overwrite any files needed.
4. Hopefully you do not need to restart your game.
5. If you start experiencing crashing then please send me your log file info and I'll look into merging the mod with your request.
Happy gaming.

Glad to hear! Report any problems or suggestions I check this forum daily.

It's said in the description: "includes Hostile Bandits 2". There's a way to revert this by installing an add-on included in the AO 3.1 mod alone.
