Last Day is no longer being developed or supported by its developers and translators. These two, newer mods offer a similar and better experience:

  • S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Anomaly, a spiritual successor to Last Day
  • Dead Air, a project developed by the author of Call of Misery, which Last Day is originally based on

What is Last Day?

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Last Day is a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod pack based on Call of Misery and version 1.4.22 of Call of Chernobyl, originally created by the Eastern S.T.A.L.K.E.R. community. It includes several addons previously unknown to the majority of the western S.T.A.L.K.E.R. community, such as MLR, which adds a lot of new characters and tasks, Outfit Marauder, adding lootable outfits on fallen stalkers, or an extended edition of Outfit Addon, adding not only outfits and helmets already present in the regular version of Outfit Addon, but also several variants of all types of apparel: regular, worn, and damaged.

Below is a flowchart detailing various projects from which Last Day derives. It is recommended to experience these first.

How is Last Day installed?

Fairly simple. These files need to be installed into a single directory, in order.

The mod runs standalone, meaning it should be installed on its own without being combined with Call of Chernobyl or Call of Misery.

An older version of Last Day is available here:

What does Last Day feature?

Here is a full list of addons and features included in Last Day:

  • Explosion of damaged weapons
  • Fast travel
  • Ghillie suit from MISERY 2.1
  • Multimedia PDA
  • NanoCell Inventory
  • No Ammo HUD
  • Physical appearance of money
  • Psy-helm
  • Radio
  • Smart Artefact Spawn
  • Squads on PDA
  • Thirst simulation

Additionally, there are new models for NPCs and mutants, new artifacts, new mutant parts, new consumables, a simulated PDA network, stash descriptions (like in Shadow of Chernobyl), new icons, new music, new radio tracks, changes in prices, PDA tabs from Call of Chernobyl 1.5 (relations, encyclopedia etc.), and more.

Frequently asked questions

  • Several folders are missing from the gamedata directory. Is this intentional?
    • Most of the files from Last Day are packed in .db files located in the database folder, along with files from Call of Chernobyl and Call of Misery.
  • There is constant radiation outside. How can this be disabled?
    • Constant radiation is caused by the Dark mode option in the game options.
  • How can mutants be skinned? Clicking OK does not work.
    • Mutant parts have to be skinned by double-clicking on each separately.
  • Animations do not play when using items. How can this be enabled?
    • Use item animations in the game options needs to be enabled.
  • There seems to be no obvious destination when undertaking a task to guide other stalkers. What is wrong?
    • The destinations of these tasks are dependent on the dynamic news system. As a result, they are often quite vague, and can only be completed through trial and error.
  • Item icons are scattered and messed up. What causes this?
    • Increasing the texture quality in the video options can resolve this issue. Otherwise, it may simply be caused by using an old video card, in which case no solution is known other than upgrading it.
  • Nimble does not offer any wares. Is this intentional?
    • Nimble, while present in the mod, no longer functions as a trader, and has been substituted by Meeker, located in the book store on the Outskirts.
  • There is still some text in Russian, even while using the translation for the mod. Is anything wrong?
    • The translation is not 100% finished, and thus some text remains in Russian.
  • Trying to enter another level leads to being teleported backwards and being prompted with a message saying, "This path is unknown". What causes this?
    • In Last Day, not all routes between levels are unlocked from the very start. They can be unlocked by completing various tasks, using PDAs acquired on corpses, and carrying out dialogue-specific transactions with traders.
    • Alternatively, they can be unlocked by enabling Open level routes in the game options.
  • How can files from the mod be edited?
    • The DB Tool, part of AXRToolset, is required. Most files related to the mod are located in the .db files in the database folder. Instructions:
      1. Run launcher.exe
      2. Select DBTool
      3. Set the input path to the database folder in the Last Day directory
      4. Create a new directory where you want to unpack and set it as the output path
      5. Press the execute button
      6. The tool has a console command window attached, view it for output and it will say when it's done.
      7. Copy any files you want to modify from your unpacked folder to your gamedata folder, keeping relative path names. (ex. move unpacked\configs\creatures\actor.ltx to gamedata\configs\creatures\actor.ltx)

Mikhail Grishin, the main developer of Last Day, announced today that development on Last Day has ceased.

This might not come as a surprise to many of you. Updates to both Last Day and its translation have been few, and Last Day Lite—another project released by the Last Day team, based on Dead Air—was never translated or even announced here. In addition, my own communication with Grishin has been sparse, and my general activity in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. community has dwindled.

Perhaps, one day, there will be a return to the Last Day translation to finish things up on our part. Nevertheless, Last Day will remain on Mod DB unless we ever get a request from its creators to take it down, and we have a repository on GitHub for the Last Day translation—a repository that anyone can contribute to at any time.

Outside of Last Day, my team and I are working on a translation for another mod, the progress of which can be seen on our group page.

I am having issues trying to create an account so that is why I am "anonymous" Though I am here to ask for some help

On Steam I have purchased all the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games and am a very dedicated fan.

I recently had a problem with my PC forcing me to factory reset it and lose everything. Literally everything. I thought I would chill out and re-download Stalker Last Day and just have some fun to make up for my sorrows.
I have downloaded this mod before and it worked just fine, but this time it isn't working. Here is what pops up when I try to click on the .exe or the .cmd

"Could not find MSVCP120.dll"
"Could not find MSVCP120.dll"
"Could not find d3dx9_43.dll"
"Could not find MSVCP120.dll"

I looked in the folders for the mod and I have found a "msvcp80.dll" but none that are 120.dll.
This is all very odd because I never had this issue before. I do also have S.T.A.L.E.R.: Call of Pripyat installed on my PC.
I downloaded Stalker CoC as well to see if maybe it would contain the missing files, but it had the same issue.

If someone could help me out this would be great. Thanks again.

You’re missing Visual C++ Redistributable Packages. Get x86 if you have a 32-bit system or x64 if you have a 64-bit system:

Judging by your error message, you might also need to install DirectX 9. But I suggest only installing what I linked above first, then seeing what happens.

Also, Last Day is no longer being supported, so you should know that you won’t get much help with any other potential issues. Check out the very top of the description on this page for more details.

Thank you. I knew that my cry for help probably wouldn't be answered but I had enough hope to ask. Thank you very much for the help. I would not know what I would do without Stalker.

I also want to say thank you for helping to keep the mods of Stalker alive. I have seen you in this community doing lots of great things and helping in large and small ways. Thanks again. I hope you have a great day.

Damn. That’s some heartfelt words. I see that the community’s been stagnating as of late, so I’ve been doing my best to keep it alive, but I think my time has come to go do other things in life. Still, thanks.

A Really polished and difficult Mod. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys other Russian mods like Joint Pak 2 and Stalkersoup.

The modpack is well on its way being a must for a Call of Misery installation.

Look forward to updates, Thanks.
