Hello guys.

This update is a bit special, as there won't be another one soon.

The progress has been really slow lately, as I have been plagued by bugs of all kinds.
Compiling bugs, logic bugs, it seemed that every time I tried to add something it came with a new bug attached.

I was planning to reach release candidate in April, but I am far from this.
Problem is that I will have no time for the mod in the coming monthes. So whatever work left will have to wait .
I finished a bunch of tasks though, included the full textures update for NPC and most of mutants.
You have a preview of the two main stalker groups and the updated flesh mutant below.
NPC also have new faces, and all have at least updated outfits, some have brand new ones.
Flesh mutant is now a very dangerous beast, much faster and very strong. I always found that mutant a little lame, very weak and quite useless.
It has really sharp pointy limbs (I think the original uses lobster claw texture and shape !), and it should be a lot more dangerous with these huge weapons.
So now if it hits you, you get a lot of damages. And they run pretty fast too. Beware.
As dogs and boars, there is 3 variations. Different sizes, two different skins, and different skills. The bigger ones are more resistant and more deadly.

So now the big question.
What about an open beta using the current version of the mod ?
As I won't be able to work on it for a while, I was thinking that may be having a detailed feedback from you guys would help me a lot when I'll be back to this. I would have a good idea about how to improve and update the current version in addition of having modt bugs identified and reported.
The downside for you is that as it's a story driven mod, once the plot is spoiled by playing the beta, would it be interesting to play the final version ?
Tell me what you think about that in the comments.
Getting a beta version ready for the public would be quite easy, I just want to be sure it's the right move.

I was reading Roadside Picnic recently, and it almost made me scrap the current mod and move to a new one closely based on the novel. Almost all assets are ready for such a mod, and in fact I am surprised we don't have one yet.
I know there is a couple of mods already trying to be more faithful to the novel/movie, but they still are very far from it.
I would really like a mod with a zone without humans, a lot more dangerous and distorted. And also an outskirt where humans live, where life is quite normal, with an underground economic system where a few stalkers are paid good money to scavenge weird items from the zone.
But well, I have no time anyway.

So here is some previews of the new updates, cheers !

I will wait as long as it takes, don't want to spoil anything. You been doing so well with this mode, now you talking about months until release, what happened?

Unfortunately my free time is very minimal now, and I have other projects going on.
I was hoping for a steady progress but lately all my work time on the mod has been devoted to figuring out crashes and bugs.
But I want to clarify something, the mod dev is not stopped, the mod is not on permanent hold. I'll have a lot less time for a while, but I'll try to have regular work sessions. There is not a lot of things left to do, but some of them take some time (logic + testing).

Okay, so I am a bit confused. Not complaining, just confused and asking for clarity.
The title of this article states "Released", which implies the mod has been released in some form and is available for download and play.
However, after reading everything on the landing page, I can find nothing which indicates where the download files are located.

Is the beta released and available for download, or not?
If so, where can we get the downloadable files, please?

It's automatic.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Sorry, but your response doesn't make any sense whatsoever and is not helpful at all. In what possible way can a download of a mod be "automatic?"

Reply Good karma Bad karma-1 votes

The site automatically displays "released" status when the release date set by the uploader comes. No one is calling the download automatic, BUT it is also possible for the file to be available automatically on a date you set.

Please think before commenting.

Please provide responses detailed enough to not create more questions than they answer.

I see now that the title of this article has been changed and now reflects a projected release date sometime in Q3. My questions are answered.

You can open the open beta and upload it to us as updates and fixes are released. People will help with finding errors and various problems. I just really want to play it. ((

It's a shame we'll have to wait longer, but the wait will be worth it if the final mod will be stable. Looking forward to updates in the future!
