After speaking to Sid once and later returning from Garbage to buy suit I find his door closed...!? Doors at agroprom, Yantar and gate at Red forest also closed... 've been trying different things and spoke to everyone but nothing seems to work?! Nothing to be found in blue crates at checkpoints either... Are these all bugs or am I missing out on something very essential?! :confused:
I follow teh Moo!

I take it using the usual F key to open doesnt work?
F-key don't work, neither does running in to them, shooting or throwing grenades... Thus I cannot get to some crucial places or characters,...
Slightly cooler than a n00b

I had this same problem, and apparently it's due to scripts bugging out. If you don't complete the story missions in the correct order, or enter an area earlier than you would via the story, scripts that are supposed to run, don't. There is no known fix other than to keep lots of saves and play in the correct order. This, understandably, is utter crap and spoils the explorative nature of Stalker. I expect this will be fixed in a patch somewhere down the line. It's the ONLY thing that has spoiled my experience so far, and stopped me dead at Yantar because I couldn't get into the lab.
Looks like I'am going to start all over again... And watch every step I take... Damn right it spoils the explorative nature of the game since I normally get better suits and weapons on further levels only to return and finish missions easier from where i started... guess I'll have to be a good boy and foolow instructions in the near future... Thanx anyway...
