K so, as the title says, how do I get to Pripyat? I dunno how to get there. Also, theres one helicopter crash site I can't get to cuz theres mines all around D: I keep getting blow'd up.
Do the main quest line to get to Pripyat.
I would, but I can't seem to stop dying on those mines trying to get to the helicopter.
Maybe use a couple of grenades to set off the mines. Or temporarily increase your jump height in actor.ltx to something like 14 to clear the mines in one jump.
Take a bolt and throw it on the ground every step you make. If you hear a tick, it's a mine and it's very likely to explode, if you don't hear a tick, the path is clear.
Yeah I tryed that at first with no luck, so I did some other quests, and when I came back the bolt trick worked. Thanks for the help though, I probably should have posted that I got past the mines last night lol. Damn boars took out the rest of the mines so I just sat ina corner with my auto shotty and pumped the rest of them.
BTW. If anyone else read this and wonders how get past the mines the correct way, pay attention to the details. 1.On the minimap you can see some explosions patterns, along with a dead stalker near a rock. 2. There are pipe coming out of the ground near those explosion marks on the ground, they form a trail. 3. Follow it, starting from the 2 that are togheter, in a straight line, and always toss a bolt to be sure.
It took me quite some time to notice it, after I got frustated blowing up all the time, I wondered if I wasn't suposed to do something smarter than trial an error.
The easiest way to get through mines just to follow along the wall on right side! That's all. ;)
You just lower the grass density setting and there are several small pipes sticking out of the ground that zig-zag the safe pattern to walk to the helicopter, use bolts to make sure you don't run into stray mines. The one I ignored till last was the helicopter that you had to jump through an anomaly to teleport to.
We're past this. /thread
