ABR Pack v1.0 contains most popular and interesting mods on 2017 for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. COP. This overhaul doesn't add new quests or items keeping the original conception. For list of features and credits in "Read more" section. Works only on DX9. Tips: Save with ~ button. Push ~ and type for example: save 001 , and press enter. After emission music can dissapear, click ESC two times and it's awright! ATTENTION!!! Old KBO & Prometheus Theatre have stable crashes without logs in particular places. Save often before buildings of Pripyat. Mod tested on GOG version of game. Choose russian language and use english text from mod archive. Works on i7-3770, 16GB, GTX970 for sure. There can be lags near of Noah's ship on Zaton.
01. New weather by Atmosfear 3 but not so dark. Separate preset for each location on bad and good cycle. Zaton is more cloude & foggy. Jupiter has more clear weather but rains will be too. Pripyat is more cloudy and stormy. I tried to make more rains with more light weather to prevent "dark nights" during day.
02. New textures of nature, structures, scopes.
03. New simulation by MSO makes life in the Zone more active but I've choose settings to prevent constant shoot out. Mutants now are really active in nights. Nights are dark and you can catch a headshot from hostile mercenary. NPC's gather weapons, use addons, medkits, surround you in fights.
04. New sound of background musics old are there too, but now music in location during day is 15 minute mix, during night - 10 minute mix. New sounds of anomy - very immersive, thanks to Sclera. Also I took sound folder from Misery 2.1. Though, some sounds of mutants can cause a little click sound, I think that because of abruption of audio without fades. Anyway - it's not critical.
05. New hud. It has minimalistic design. I devided it on two parts so minimap is down left coner now - it's onle for loot and quest NPC's. There are no enemies on minimap anymore and with Variation Mod you must see whom you're shooting at.
06. New NPC's models. I started new game very many times, and every time stalkers (excluding quest NPC's), had a new models. It's 2017, no more clones.
07. New weapon models and animations.
08. New artefact models.
09. Be a butcher - cut off trophies from mutants and sell them to local barmen. You sell 20 kg's of meat and earn 1500 rubles. Very usefull in early stages of game.
10. Darth Vader syndrome - now if your wear a helmet you see and hear it. I make breaths not very loud. Thanks to Smurth, now Major breathing is situative. If you're running - you breath often and louder, if you're dying - you're breathing as a fish on fry pan.
11. Major now wears his helmets in cutscenee, it's not only on entering the Pripyat, because everybody is without helms in that cutscene.
12. Nimble sells ammo. You can find Vintorez buy ammo and play this from start. Anyway you will die from each shot or anomaly, at least you'll have a chance.
13. Nimble has less unique weapons. Now he has only one pistol, one smg, one rifle, one shotgun to order. They're models with unique caliber, mag size or my favourite - automatic shotgun. Why? Because NPC's are walking with cool toys now (thanks to MSO). What point in ordering protecta, when youcan find it.
14. Medics don't heal.
15. NPC's weapons are in middle shape, you can grab a cool gun, repair it and be cool. No point of collecting garbage. Zombies always have bad weapons. Inventory has marks on condition bar. If weapon's condition is lower than it - drop this. Collect ammo.
16. Inventory grids are smaller - no scrolling. And has more light textures, weapons are black, inventory are black - I have a miopia and don't wanna go blind. You eyes must be living in this game, not being dying.
17. Medkits are healing slowly. Use drugs when you're going to anomaly.
18. Outfit are made of material now. It damages. You need to repait it. Gas mask can crack if you catch bullets and anomalies to many times. More heavy armour are more durable.
19. Quest NPC's during missions are immortal now. Because with good AI came the problem of friendly fire. Your squad could kill themselves because of two tushkanos.
20. Actor's stamina regenirating while standing, you run far without too much weight. You can take 70 kg's. You can think it's cheat. But really, my intention was that you could take a long trip through the Zone, not running every 5 seconds for Skadovsk. Bleeding is dangerous too. Always have a bandages in early game stages. In the end you will be a termanator - but it's classic.
21. Artefacts are rebalanced. Some are less effective, some are more effective - shock resistance and additional weight. Now you can shot from 4 weapons, you can take as much as you want. Game must be fun.
22. In tunnels for pripyat you will have a little action music on background.
23. Lost sentry in Pripyat will be more controlled now.
24. Finish all quests before quests near to evacuation.
25. Bloodsuckers now are very fast. You can check your reflexes, or run.
26. Weapons are deadlier. No five headhots now. But even in exoskeleton you can be killed too.
27. You can sell second compass and oasis to barmen. Guess which one. But better don't do this.
28. Kuvalda will ask money for detector. Trapper will give you money instead of weapon.
29. Intro has new track and info why are you starting your journey in bandit coat and one pistol.
30. Now military squad in Pripyat will not die if you will go to kill monolith in next building as it was scripted before.
31. Now subtitles in outro video is white, not gray.
32. P.S. This is not a HARDCORE mod, but can be competetive at start.
