STALKER Origins - File Description  


Quality: 7
FunFactor: 9
Creativity: 9
Installation Instructions: 8

Overall Rating: 8.3

Description:
This mod changes many aspects of the game. It attempts in improve the AI, and gives you more of a "fighting to live" feel in the game.

Quote:
-Doubled prices of mutant parts and changed weights to suit the limb sizes a bit better.
-Reduced the weight of artefacts to 0.2kg instead of 0.5, and increased pricing by 50%
-Quest timers are, shall we say, irrelevant now, unless your gonna waste a years gaming time.
-All ammo prices have been doubled
-Weapons add-ons have been tripled (still cheap stick out tongue)
-Weapon prices have been doubled, better get savin for those snipers now stick out tongue
-Food Weights lowered
-Medical Supplies are now 4x more expensive. Goes to figure that comodities that save your life should be thanks approprietly. Im tryin to modify corpse drop rates so supplies from stalkers etc. arent so abundant.(watch this space)
-Bandages dont heal hitpoints, they aint lined with anaesthetics are they? stick out tongue
-Medkits dont prevent bleeding, a little odd perhaps, but why bother with bandages at all otherwise.
-Armour Prices doubled, but weights halved (some suits have tiny tweaks to bullet damage, nothing overpowering)

STALKER Origins - Readme  
Readme File:
-----INTORODUCTION-----
I've been through all the stalker files on offer, and have been disappointed by the number of mods that give something great to the game, like improved a.i and weapons repairs, only to also include things like traders owning EVERY gun in the game. For me things like this took away the concept of fighting to live, and made it living to fight. Not Stalkery at all :P
Included in this file are 2 gamedata folders. One contains the entire original Stalker data. These files change NOTHING about the original game. However, once you install them, you too can tweak stalker however much you like. The other gamedata folder are mostly the same files, but i've changed some values to make gameplay that bit more challenging. At least i hope. There are a few other mods included in my version. Credits applied where needed.

So the rundown on my files;

-Doubled prices of mutant parts and changed weights to suit the limb sizes a bit better.
-Reduced the weight of artefacts to 0.2kg instead of 0.5, and increased pricing by 50%
-Quest timers are, shall we say, irrelevant now, unless your gonna waste a years gaming time.
-All ammo prices have been doubled
-Weapons add-ons have been tripled (still cheap :P)
-Weapon prices have been doubled, better get savin for those snipers now :P
-Food Weights lowered
-Medical Supplies are now 4x more expensive. Goes to figure that comodities that save your life should be thanks approprietly. Im tryin to modify corpse drop rates so supplies from stalkers etc. arent so abundant.(watch this space)
-Bandages dont heal hitpoints, they aint lined with anaesthetics are they? :P
-Medkits dont prevent bleeding, a little odd perhaps, but why bother with bandages at all otherwise.
-Armour Prices doubled, but weights halved (some suits have tiny tweaks to bullet damage, nothing overpowering)

The following mods are here too;

-'rules_of_engagement' By KoGar (reduces the threat range that enemies detect you by, so no pistol sniping from 150m)
-Improved sound effects v.9 by dDefinder (only the weapons sounds of said mod here im afraid, didnt like the rest)
-Hud_and_blood_v1.3 by Psuedoant (little for red spray, smaller crosshairs and slicker HUD)
-Show_reward_v1.02 by Onionradish (lets you see what you get form missions before hand)
-'Real gun names v.3' by Kyodan (does what it says on the tin)

If i've credited the wrong ppl, my apologies, let me know.

-----INSTALLATION-------

OK, now if you want my version of the game, simply drag the folder 'gamedata' into your stalker directory. Then simply save the other gamedata (originals) folder somewhere safe (BUT NOT THE DIRECTORY) Vice versa for the original files.If you dont like my file, simple copy the originals folder (WITHOUT the brackets and words inside em) into the same folder and overwrite. You'll be back to having all files and the original set-up. Be aware-if you have other mods when installing the original files, chances are they wont be there when you start up. you've been warned >:)

WANRING: A New Game File might have to be started. If not, then yay!

-----THINGS TO COME------ (he hopes)

i am by no means a prof modder, so feel free to point out where i can do the following. I'm looking into changing the loot parameters so that meds are harder (not impossible) to come by, makin them a valuable asset, instead of weight wasting stacks of 20s. Also, when i understand trader.ltx files better, ill modify them to sell a few more usefull, lower grade ammo's. and make the same ammo drops rarer. The idea will be that artifacts and mutant parts (which have been doubled) will fund your purchases of ammo and weapons, rather than looting thousands of bullets and a bunch of guns and running back and forth to sell to the trader. Traders in my opinion should be there to stock YOU up, not the otherway round.

sounds like a great mod... and very similar to mine >.>(REALITY S.T.A.L.K.E.R) no problems though, thats a good thing, stalker needs to be much more realistic. if you want to look at wepon drops and change them around look for the "death_items_by_communities", "death_items_count" and the "death_items_by_levels" files in your "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobylgamedataconfigmisc" folders thoughs will give you exactly what you need

sorry I meant item drops(like ammo and med kits) in my first post. as well for the trader files, from what I understand(which is limited) under the by conditions. the second number for the item is the price multiplier, for the price that they will pay for buy the item from you. I have no clue what the first number is. under the sell conditions the first number is the maximum of the item the trader will stock at that time. and the second number is the percentage of chance that the trader will have the item in. in sell conditions I don't know what the first number does but the second number is the multiplier for the cost to buy the item from the trader. hope that helps with what you want. and as well feel free to DL my mod to look at how I did some of thoughs things.

Thanks makeupsomething! I'l dig into those files. And yeah you'd be right sayin the files are similar to yours, just that i specifically chose which parts i liked and left out the ones i didnt. This file comes with EVERY single standard stalker files in ltx form to, so any1 can have a crack at moding this "diamond in the rough".

Forgot to mention in the ReadMe, if this is the first modification any1 is making to Stalker, go to the Stalker folder, find the files names fsgame and change the line
$game_data$ = false true| $fs_root$| gamedata
TO THIS: $game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata
Its needed to force the game to prioritise the modified files over the normal ones.

You say you're "disappointed by the number of mods that give something great to the game, only to also include things like traders owning EVERY gun in the game". Well I feel the same, and I feel the same way about your mod too. Why did you have to include "hud mod"? It's here on this site for everyone to download so why not just suggest people that they should download that too instead of including it? Well... your mod sounds great so I will still download it and try to remove that stupid hud mod myself stick out tongue

Sadly your mod doesn't work. I have 1.0003 patch installed, and when I try to run your mod, I am just prompted back to desktop...

works fine for me, i havent changed any critical data, only item values, and the other mods are not related to one another and work fine with most other people. Did you change the fsgame.ltx like i said above? thats the only thing that might trigger a stall to desktop. And as the ReadMe says, this file i gave has the full BASIC AND UNMODIFIED files for you to play with. My version is pretty basic and to my liking, i havent forced it on you big grin

I found it used to crash to desktop too, but i assumed it was the stupid game engine. I use the low game settings with anti-aliasing off, so im not sure what effects higher settings might have. Try lower settings first, and if its still buggered, ill ask filefront to pull this file. Seems a few ppl are havin trouble with it for some reason. Maybe i'll just upload the basic gamedata files alone, useful for any1 who wants to mod.

It seems that after a little tinkering around, ive discovered that the craashes are not due to my handy-work, more that having every single file that was in the gamedata folder installed was causing the problems. As a result, i'll be posting an update that only includes the files solely that i editted. Really shouldnt have included the full gamedata folder. My bad! As for the original files, DONT install them to your stalker directory. Instead throw them in your desktop, downloads folder or whatever, then simply copy paste files that you've edited into your stalker directory. Sorry if my mods caused problems. Makeupsomething has a great mod Reality Stalker 1.2 i think. Check it out!
