Iamstalker.com interviewed me a little while back, been forgetting to put it up, so i thought maybe another thing for those to read...

We from IamSTALKER.com have had a Q&A with SNIPER-X. He is the project leader of the STALKER-mod: "STALKER Theft Auto"

The mod is based on Grand Theft Auto, but where GTA is a single player game, STA will be multiplayer.

Q&A with SNIPER-X, project leader of the STALKER-mod: STALKER Theft Auto.

IS.com: You are planning to make a Grand Theft Auto like mod. GTA is a single player game, how are you converting this to multiplayer ?

SNIPER-X: "Well GTA yes is a sp game, and yet i love it, simply after playing MTA..Multi-theft-auto, i simply was frusterated about using all seeing eye server program, and all the screwed up bugs and glitches it gave off, plus...

...i wanted to see GTA on a new sophisticated high-end engine such as X-ray."

IS.com: What do you like about GTA and what are you going to change?

SNIPER-X: "Well i love majority of GTA but, in this, i wanted to have more enterable buildings, gas for cars, advanced AI, and a mp game that would carry very few glitches, not to mention characters bodies that looked undeformed ect,"

IS.com: I assume you will going to build a large city, can you tell us about some of the landmarks you will put in it? Like an airport, harbor...

SNIPER-X: "well cities are in a voting state right now, if you go to the website you will be able to vote for which GTA city you would want to see first remodeled on x-ray. Landmarks are going to be real, you could expect a 7-11 quickmart, or best-buy, safeway, possibly some actual airport companies ect, places that seem all familiar to us at home, not to mention i will add a gamestop. heh heh"

IS.com: In a large city people will need transportation. What means of transportation are you planning? Cars, (motor)bikes, boats, helicopters...

SNIPER-X: "Cars are planned for the moment, afterall the cars physics state in STALKER seem fantastic,although i do question how they blow up or look like when breaking glass.
i think helicopters will come second if anything, basically this mod is like GTA 3 going to it's next step in changing GTA in new form. boats, really havn't thought about it, but it's considered. motorcycles..ehh kinda hard but it's a possibility but not for a while."

IS.com: What kind of gametype(s) are you going to use?

SNIPER-X: "Free for all, basically enter the city in an random location, with other 32 players, and ya..kinda appear out of the blue like the terminator, only not naked.
2nd. would be a team/"Gang" deathmatch.
not really, a all out battle in location but it could work."

IS.com: Are you going to use NPC's? If so, how... for law enforcement would be cool!

SNIPER-X: "NPCs are being considered for yes, Cops,ambulence,whores/hookers,gangs,dealers, casual daily morons."

IS.com: I know that you are a big fan of making the killing as real as it gets, what are your plans?

SNIPER-X: "hmmmm... well the real aspect of violence for this mod is to deliver real gore, but it's hard to find the right people out there who can implement such features like Soldier of fortune, or Manhunt, or Postal 2. It's planned, but not sure as of yet how to implement it, until i read some scripts and until GSC can finally answer to wether it can be done or not.."

IS.com: Do you think you are going to pull this off? Because GSC has cancelled coop, vehicle code for multiplayer and limited the playercount to a max of 32.

SNIPER-X: "yes, anything is possible if you set your mind to it like a girls body(that's hot) , Co-op is cancelled for it's offical retail release, but GSC has announced a month or 2 back that they will consider it to be on the first patch, or an extra download., and for Vehicle code.. well i'm sure we can fix that, just that i will have to send them an email, and mp 32 count is no problemo."

IS.com Thanks you for your time, I will post it ASAP!

SNIPER-X: "Thank you for the Questions."

Do you have your own questions for SNIPER-X or would you like to join his mod? Ask him on the STA forums!

just a little something. (nothing much for now_ but will be updated soon with something new.)
