Installation: *Standalone!* unpack and start Stalker-RTTN.exe , that's it!
Read the FAQ first if you have questions.

Road To The North (RTTN) is built on "Call of Misery".
It's made for players who love a mix of survival, realism, lore friendly story and interesting characters.
There are 37+ new missions, which cover most of 32 large maps in the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
Mission updates are easy to follow,as updates can be read in the PDA and in a self writing journal item.

"RTTN has that Roadside Picnic feeling. Everyone entered the Zone for their own reasons and everyone is connected to eachother in some way. The game adapts to recent events, changing dialogs and missions. Characters you meet have their own interests and personalities, some will tell you their story. Everything included is lorefriendly to stalker, based on the information we can find in the original games and will take you on a well written journey. The world's size allows you to choose your own path, the order in which you play missions and write your own story as well. The Zone is an unforgiving place and it will be difficult to survive. Take your time, explore, roleplay and.. Good hunting, Stalker."

many missions and dialogs are multiple choice. Both will change based on recent events, deaths and choices, leading to a slightly different story. Stalkers will talk about these events too. Your choices have consequences. One of the new mutants I'm very proud of, is the "Nightshade".

You can choose who you are. Your gender, faction, name and player icon can all be customised.
Road To The North is incredibly detailed and perfect for roleplaying.

- You can disguise yourself by wearing a faction suit, unlocking gameplay mechanics during missions
- Multiple choice responses to dialogs, even based on gender and your current faction.
- There's a ceasefire between Duty and Freedom near the bar area. others will respond to the situation.
- There's a new faction ("The Beyond"), which is connected to the story.
- The Monolith are an extreme threat to the main factions. Your actions will make a difference.
- Stalkers send eachother messages and respond to what they find and see (Tronex addon)
- A completely new world map (satellite), with level positions inspired by real life.
- Make new friends by helping them and ask them to come with you on your mission.
- Dynamic missions can be repeated, including fetch and assassination missions (DoctorX).

Road To The North story compatible factions are: Loners, Ecologists, Clear Sky, Duty, Freedom.
Other factions are usually enemies of the main story characters. You can still play as an incompatible faction like Bandits or Monolith, with limited dynamic mission support.

Road To The North is standalone, it includes CoM and many other addons, edited by me.
Some of the new RTTN features are:

So far, I love it even though I didn't enjoy playing misery and that's saying something. I will await more addons ;). Perhaps a minimap of some sorts?

Any way to call again the function that show the amount of stalkers in the zone? It fires on new game, but i would like to see it again, since ive changed stalker population setting.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

I'd also be interested to know how that settings affects the game.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I gotta say this mod made me pickup my detector and bolts once more, great story so far, something that puts this mod ahead of the Misery clones that seem to pop up. Though the one thing I’m really looking forward to is The Armed Zone coming to this mod.

*raises a shot of Cossacks in anticipation*

Hey Seda - just want to let you know that I LOVE what you did with x18 :D
BTW - I changed factions to Loner, does changing factions mid way break anything? I paid sidorovich for it

thank you!!!
you can change factions mid game. the following factions are supported by RTTN story: loner, ecologists, clear sky, duty, freedom. being in a different faction can unlock other dialog options too

As a loner fro msidorovich you can be teleported to miltiary base, but that doesn't make sense since loners are enemies with military, is it not possible to change some of the location the trader allows you to fast travel? especially depending on your faction? On a side note Seda, Sakharov behaves weird at times you can't not talk to him since he doesn't allign himself properly at the window

I enabled traveling to all locations even if they are enemy. the player asks if someone can arrange a guide, could be anyone so it's possible. sometimes crouching at the window helps when trying to talk to sakharov

Thanks i sometime try to do that, is it possible to remove from stash the faction patches? You get around 90% of patches or empty batteries in stashes

Hi again. Sorry, CTD to report. All was going well in Cordon. I had accepted the 'Bear Hunt' mission the morning after after completing 'mix tape'. Saw lots of dogs and fleshes fighting near the anomaly on the opposite side of the road to the village, near the underpass entrance. I started 'field dressing' the corpses then got a CTD. Like before the CTD would continue when re-loading the saved game. Deleting the tmp and user files helped. Graphics settings were lower than I was using before. NB - new game patch and latest emergency patch installed.

Highest Rated (6 agree) 10/10

This is gonna be a honest review. So in the term of gameplay elements and features it's on the same level as Dead Air but somehow in this mod the zone feels much more populated. So with gameplay elements I would like to give this a 10/10 The story is amazing. And most of the CoC or CoM based story driven mods are a mess but this is really nice to play so far. It has both a decent story and freeplay at the same time so that's a 10/10 again. (Also seda did a good job using all the maps as much as…
