Well I really want to join freedom, but they SUCK in fights and its so frustrating, its like when they see Duty they just crap their pants and go and have a wee in the corner while 4 grenades are lobbed at them. Firstly, WTF is wrong with them??? Where they supposed to be this retarded or is it another bug? Secondly, can we fix it by copying duty or monolith fighting style and giving it to Freedom by editing something? If anyone is capable of doing this then please do! I'm sure it will be a popular mod as ive heard quite a few complaints on other forums about this. Cheers to all who read :)
Freedom, Duty, Loners, Clear Sky, Military and Bandits/Renegades all fight the same. Their "style" is defined in the file 'm_stalker.ltx'. Their movement speeds, morale, accuracy, visibility, even the taunts they throw at each other. It's all in that file.
Monolith have a seperate file, because their tough sons of bitches, and Zombified Stalkers move and fight differently.
It's realistic. How well do you think a bunch of stoners that have been smoking irradiated herb would fight?

Lolz touche. Btw anyone remember the name of the irradiated brand of weed that only grows in chernobyl? I couldnt remember it so i tried googling and found nothing.
I dont care what they do in their spare time lol, but they were much better fighters in SoC and having them suck this much is really bringing unbalance to the game. I sometimes see a whole squad of them get killed before any of them fire a single round.. its pathetic! Besides i hate Duty they are nasty pr!cks lol. Must be a way to do this though?? I imagine it would be easy too. Btw irradiated herb should be put into the game and give you stat boosts for a short period O.o Kinda like the "health pipe" in Postal 2.
Yes duty are a bunch of egotistical dicks in CS but they're awsome in SoC.
And freedom are also awsome because they don't smoke weed in SoC.
Although it would be interesting to make the MONOLITH take a more active role in the faction war.
yeah defo.. the monolith have been in the last parts of both games.. they are tough as hell too! would be cool if they had a base we could take down or something!
Maybe a mod could overhaul the faction war.
Make all the factions reasonably possible to join and rework the bases. Give the Military Warehouse to Monolith, Make Army a bit more prominent in Cordon or somewhere.
What I'd really like to see is multiple home bases.
Freedom bites the butt this time around because many of them run around in gear thats inferior to Duty.
Duty's got strong suits and can wear the regular Duty suit or even the Universal Protection suit (the descriptions for both suits have been swapped). Freedom by comparison only seems to send most faction fighters out in Wind of Freedom suits (those oddball light suits that are pretty weak.)
Duty's bringing the best of Russia with them: AK-74s, Abakans, and the occasional Groza toter. Freedom would be well off enough if they stuck with the L85s & LR300s.......but lots of them run around with Winchester 1300s & MP5s instead. Not the wisest of choices.
Also, Freedom's a little bugged, perhaps. It feels like they're really slow to advance. Even when you do all the work in Agroprom, they're really slow to send reinforcements to occupy new checkpoints, while Duty sends out more drones than an anthill.
But preferably, I'd like to see the Faction Wars expand. They dont feel like they really spread out to higher areas, like Yantar, Red Forest & Army Warehouses. That should change, especially since Freedom wants in on the main warehouses. And once new Waypoint/Guide mods are finally implemented, the dream........Duty/Freedom/Monolith duking it out in Limansk. A real warzone.
Lol yeah that would be fun to have a Limansk warzone with all factions trying to take each other out! Even throw a few stalkers in there to spice things up! I think before we could ever make a mod like that though, a lot of bugs need to be addressed. mainly the ones like you mentioned with the fact freedom seem to sit off having a snooze while bases are up for grabs! I know Freedom arent the best geared etc and they smoke weed.. but cmon! Think how fun it will be if they were tweaked.. Could improve their armor stats and give them fully upgraded LR300s and SVDs. I'd also like to see all stalkers use med kits and bandages more often.. They dont seem to do so. But its definitely not just the equipment holding freedom back, they seem very slow in battle.. stoned or not.. they shouldnt be so dumb and stand there without any cover pulling hand guns out against Duty with friggin chain guns! Something is seriously up with them :( About the warehouses, it would be fun to see monolith take it over as a base and then Freedoms mission can be to wipe them out and claim that base for theirs. Then it would match up with SoC because in SoC that is Freedoms base! I will try pottering about with the files and see if i can do something useful.. Ive modded a lot of other games but never Stalker.. so it will take me a while. Be cooler if someone with a lot more exp of modding would do it though :)
