STILL GOING STRONG
Marcin Trojanowski (aka trojanuch), lead gameplay and difficulty balancer for MISERY, now has a son!
This is great news (and perfect timing). With Marcin recently married and now a full fleshed parent one could think that MISERY will face a decrease in updates and patches. Think again!
MDT consists of a bunch of cool and talented modders and even Marcin is working on a cool update as we write this. Arsenal modder _xXxTWiST3DxXx_ has also re-joined MDT, after a hiatus, which is awesome. Rest assured that we have good things coming for you in a very near future.

Here's how we like to spend our weekends:

WILL THERE EVER BE A STALKER 2?
Yeah, that notorious license to make S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 ...
Let's begin by saying that it is honestly quite flattering that we get this huge amount of encouraging and supportive comments. Who wouldn't love to see a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, right?

Several people have asked us if there are any news regarding our interest in acquiring the license from GSC Game World to develop S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. While MDT would love to pursue this passionately and won't deny an honest interest in taking on such task, we simply lack the resources at this point. A commercial license for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise is not something that is simply acquired, not to mention that the brand copyright itself is enshrouded in blurry mist.
Some might claim that BitComposer would be able to give us such license, but even their ownership, and the extend of their copyright, is officially disputed.

While we have little doubt that MDT would be capable of taking on such task as developing a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 it would require a great amount of resources and investments at this point, if we are to establish the production studio needed for it.

So, while we have a passive approach to the idea of pursuing a license to build the game, the idea itself is something that we will continue to dream about.

If and when new light is shared on the topic of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. copyright we would love to hear about it.

CURRENT STATUS OF MDT
As you probably know MDT has formed an actual company:
Misery Development Ltd (UK)
This company consists of core staff and lead developers from the MISERY mod development team.
This section of MDT is working full time on The Seed.
The remaining section is still spending countless hours on passionately updating and enhancing the MISERY mod in an attempt to polish and tweak the game as we promised you we would.
United we form a large, and international team of creatives.

The courage to actually take this step and form a company was conjured by the immense amount of support and encouragement in this thread. That whole thing sparked a hope in our ideas of constituting something even more solid. Thanks to everyone who placed a vote in that poll, injecting a hope in our passionate hearts.

SOCIAL MEDIA
We recently surpassed 3,000 likes on the MISERY Facebook page.
It is wonderful to feel and experience this amount of interest in our activities and we shall do our best to honor them. Feel free to track our progression on other media as well:

I'm still looking forward to the "green zone" Misery update that was teased a while ago, and about any news on Android compatibility for Seed.

regarding S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 i the love the Misery mod but it's mod and S2 is something totaly different and i believe the only people who created the cop and cs could make the S2.

Congratulations to the new parents and married couple!

Also congratulations on forming a company. This is good news, it suggests longevity with intention to release more content. Hopefully The Seed is a big success and gets various releases in addition to providing the resources for even more ambitious projects.

It is nice to see a humble but clearly driven like minded group move from a solid team of modders into a successful kickstarter campaigner into a company. Maybe in a good few years later you guys can progress into a major producer, lose your passion and make the public who love you guys turn into hate. Haha I kid, but I hope you guys succeed in all your dreams though.

I remember when Trojanuch was a reference for "quality" back in the old Stalker.filefront days. Time passed, quality stayed! Stalker Weather Overhauled was the first mod making me look at the sky and say "whoa!"

Cheers and thx for great news!

Hehe - thx guys for all these kind words :)

Cool thing is that when I was beggining to mod Stalker 7 years ago having a baby would be the the last thing that would cross my mind. It's crazy how things have changed since then.

Now I will proudly show my son how this awesome community has congratulated me him getting born :)

Thx again guys for this!

I don't get it. Stalker is just a name. Sure one connected with a lot of fun we've all had but just a name anyway. Why would MDT need to make stalker 2? Why not just make your own FPS game? By all evidence you all could surely improve on a spiritual successor to the franchise without actually using it.

Trojanuch, all the best wishes go to you, your baby, wife and all your relatives! Congrats! :)

Moving to the MDT itself. The Seed project looks awesome and I am really looking forward to playing it. So, good luck with it!
And, yes, Misery mod...Hope you, guys, are reading this post.
"The remaining section is still spending countless hours on passionately updating and enhancing the MISERY mod in an attempt to polish and tweak the game as we promised you we would."
To be honest, I'm rather disappointed about that. Not because you're trying to polish everything, but because there is no movement. Plus weapon, minus weapon. Graphics improvement. Bug fixes. C'mon, guys, it's 2014, not 2010, not 2011, not 2012 and not even 2013. Sure, textures, particles, weather, models and other visual and content stuff have always been your signature features, however, it's about time to realize that the trends have changed. Modding nowadays requires new plot, absolutely new or reworked original/build locations, first of all.

Yeah, I did complete COP myself 5 times, including playing with SGM 1.7 (or 2.0, don't remember exactly). So did quite a lot of players ond modders. But is it really worth completeing it like 50 times with gameplay mods? Guess what happened to SGM? Its downfall began shortly after a sloppy V2.2 had been released. Why? It had a few new locations with almost no plot and still everything else remained the same. At that time COP Unofficial Patch/SWM Mod was some kind of a rival project. But after some time it has never regained its popularity. It was something rather cool, actually, until the end of 2012. No new misc content, although, Jurok added a few quests (Soroka's story as an example) and fixed some bugs of COP.
Of course, you choose your way and if you choose to continue to improve the same thing again and again, when it is fine enough, I won't criticize you for that. Isn't it stupid actually - to criticize people just because they're doin what they like? :P
But still, I would recommend you to work on a new plot project if you're planning to create Misery 3 at all. Knowing how talented you are, that's really disappointing, that you're waisting your time on original COP. Sure, this is just my own point of view and I may be incorrect.

P.S.
Basically, Roh (the comment above) has got a good point. The only bad thing is that GSC don't allow to use thier engine in comercial projects, so it is worth creating a game using another engine.
