Post news Report RSS September update

We have been quiet for a while, working on the game. Our Dev Diary is coming up late so we wanted to show some progress.

Posted by on

Good evening, comrades.

It’s been quite a while since our last post, and we’ve made some serious progress since, taking a considerable step towards increasing the quality of our content. All of this is possible thanks to the experience gathered from making the first Developer diary, listening to your feedback as well as new introducing new people to our ever-growing development team. Very soon the world will experience the new installment of Developer Diary, in which we will talk about the latest features and demonstrate the actual gameplay. But why keep you waiting? Enjoy some bits of development media! Also, we would like to thank our Patreon subscribers ans well as everyone who supports Ray of Hope online.

Enjoy the materials and have nice weekend!

We’ve started reworking the Zone’s fauna, and soon some of the mutants will receive completely new models to go with the concept art.

Drafts of the new "Garbage“. In Ray of Hope you can expect to find a stalker market, one of the few safe havens – the Black Market. There, the player may acquire provisions as well as a couple of truly rare items

What about the lighting- and the shadowsystem? Will there be changes?
I do not like the new-fangled filters. This ENB costs a lot of atmosphere. I love Stalker for his photorealistic look. Black is black. I love the shadows in Stalker. Or the feeling that im in the Zone/Pripyat without the Filter ********, because the Texture, light , shadow and colors look real.
Filters ruin the colors and is a cheap way to create atmosphere. Or the image is too light, gray or a blueish.

Since when they use ENB series?
They use a modificated Version of x- Ray 1.6 with new lighting and optimization ,plus 64 bits.
The graphics in the dev diary are way better than call of pripyat.

I do not mean this mod.
But Autum Aurora uses it.

Moddb.com

And you write it yourself, they have changed the lighting.

But for me Stalker must have this lighting, realistic / gloomy:

Wordwood has captured it well:
Moddb.com

And it is an art to capture the same feeling as back then the days. And I hope the group will try it. Because I want to host a server then.

I really hope that not that much time is left for this mod to be released. I also hope that the source code and models/animations would be released and could be used (with permission, of course).

Once we are done with everything, it would be ideal to give people the tools and everything to make their own multiplayer stalker adventures. We shall see what future holds.

All of these animations remind me, you guys said you'd have a weapon jam system right with accompanying animations right?

Great article!

I know this is probably most overused question for developers of this mod under sun but: Can somebody tell me how much is mod done? In % or atleast how far is it from being released? Thanks

People will get to know once we are 100% sure. Things wary a lot time to time. But we are in early alpha phase. After that comes alpha, then closed beta testing (where we start getting in streamers) after this is open beta testing, then full release. So we still have a lot to do.

I really can't wait to see how this is going to work...Cause it still is a strange idea to me: Stalker Multiplayer, wuhh?
I hope that we can make dedicated servers (who run on a player's PC) and be able to add mods to it.

Hello
What happened to the Development Diary # 2? A month ago you said that the Diary is on its way, did you have any problems?
Thank you.
