Hello. Only pure curiosity: are there any of you stalker fans, and players, that do not mod the game somehow, liking it in it's original form and idea? Am I alone? I've used many mods, and returned playing stalker (SOC and CS) without them, liking the game to the same extent, or even better. Is it just me? Thank you.
That's like asking how many people leave their windows desktop the same as it was when they purchased their computer. Yeah some do, I guess.
I have completely unmodded game with 1.5.04 patch. I think that almost every mod is kind of cheat (not necessarily new textures but i don't have them anyway). If the developers didn't put something in the game then any changes to the game is making the game easier (most of the mods do it).
Actually it's not. When you add say a weapons mod that makes weapons better overall by default. This makes the game harder actually. Sure if you sneak really well and pick them off ok but you don't always have that chance. Sometimes you are forced to run in under fire and be face to face with a large group. But if you mod the weapons, again the AI has just as much a chance of killing the player. It's not one sided, like a cheat. It can, depending on how you look at it, change the way the game plays overall. Sure some don't like it, but hey that's your choice. GSC did a crappy job with this game and the basic bandits have titanium plates for armor I swear. Most mods make the player and AI somewhat even. Thus making it more of a challenge overall. But if I can't get a headshot on a guy from 50m away with an upgraded AK with PSO-1 scope, then what the hell fun is it. That's not realistic. I can't go running and gunning up on them cause it takes a mag for each guy to kill him. That is retarded! Not to mention the AI all getting together at once to mortar-nade your ass. WTF! Anyways. If you like the stock vanilla game, be my guest. Enjoy!

It's not a cheat because the AI also gets the same advantages as you.
I find it very retarded that I have a fully upgraded VSS vintorez and I sit quietly, not moving, and perfectly aim my gun (scope wise) and I STILL MISS. And that silencer does nothing to stop the enemies from spotting me when I'm a mile away, on a hill, inside a bush, at the dead of night.
Mods fixed it.
I played CS all the way thru once on "Stalker" setting, with no mods. Now i'm playing with mods cause that is really what i enjoy. To each his/her own way of playing CS. Mods rule. That is what is so neat about the Stalker games. Playing new mods and learning what you like and don't like about them.
If you can't hit someone dead on with a sniper rifle at 500 yrds, then what is the point of having sniper rifles in the game? How many snipers do you know that run around with a bolt action .308 and use it like an assault rifle? :lol:
I tried a lot of mods just to try it and in the end i always come back to original game. But i really changed my mind when i come to Garbage on Veteran setting and that granades freak me out. They are fu**ing sticking on my ass!?!
ive never modded either stalker game, partially becaus ei cant figure out how to do it(not good with unpackers and editing and shite), and partially because id rather use a code instead of modding a game. i cheat,don't get me wrong, but just not on these games..theres no point, just like cheating on diablo 2.
