With the announcement/new vid of STALKER 2 I see more traffic here, so I wanted to give a quick guideline on the different LA DC versions.
LA DC 1.4007: Is a mix of all the original teams work along with the RU team. The main thing it did was get rid of a bunch of cut scenes and the “Illuminati” bits along with lots of fixes and adding in more side quests. Must use the Storyline changes v1.08 mod from the launcher for full effect of the story changes.
LB's LADC 1.4007 Compilation: You must have LADC installed. My comp is just an extension of 1.4007, read all the notes. It retains the vanilla ideals, but updates/fixes some more stuff. It adds in the item usage mod for immersion that was released on the RU VK page as well. Also includes an unpacked Storyline changes v1.08 with additional changes by me, so no need to use the mod. This comp will only work with a few mods mentioned in the description. Also contains a newer configurator and bins. Link below:
LA DCE: Was solely made by the Russian speaking part of the team, the main developer being also the same person that was the LA DC main designer and scripter (Michael Rast). It does have lots of cool fixes/updates, but it is more like "Misery" type game play, designed for maximum challenge. The save system has also been changed to a check point save system. Read more about it from my article below:
