I had a weird 'bug' - i do not think it is intentionally - but, who knows... at battles in Army Warehouses and Red Forest, dead NPC's, both friendly and enemies, dissapear in the moment they touch the ground. Their rifles remain there, though. So I cannot loot the bodies. At the same time, there are 'eternal' dead bodies which were there from the beggining, when the map was loaded. This is Clear Cky worldwide, 1.5.04 patch, no mods. It does not bother me much, but... if someone has an answer?! :confused:

Do all bodies disappear straight away, or only some? Both games have a weird bug where sometimes a body will disappear. If you shoot the area, or throw a grenade near where the body should be, it will reappear.

Both games also spawn some dead NPCs. In Shadow of Chernobyl it was mainly to add atmosphere (like the dead Stalkers at Agroprom) but some were used to store quest items or to trigger audio logs (Vasiliev at Yantar, for example).

Most of the bodies. Eg. - battle at Red Forest at the bridge, after freeeing Merc squad from the 'Space' anomaly - they are lowering the bridge, and Clear Sky&Scar are supporting them with fire from the other (our side) of the bank. When bridge is finally lowered, and bandites defeated, there are only two dead, even if we managed to knock down over of 30 of them. So goes for the friendly Mercs - nothing except their SiG's. Weird. Also at the Mliltary Base at the Warehouses. Also, at the Depo in the Garbage. No bodies. Was it intentional...

I had this problem too mate, it was a mod causing it.. I renamed my gamedata folder and started a new game and body despawns were working fine again. The only problem is that I was unable to continue with my saved game after removing the mods.. but I didnt mind restarting because I wanted to play the game again with the latest patch anyway. I have a idea it might have been an mod called STOC 1.1 or maybe just the sleeping bag mod that is included with it causing the bodies to disappear instantly. What mods are you using?

No mods, no mods at all, but only Freedom mechanic fix v3.0, from Filefront. But it does not bother me much, I found those 'Goldfish' and now can carry everything I need, and 'Snowflake' with extra endurance, don't have to loot anything except ammo. And rifles remain... but I still wonder, was it intentional, to reduce clutter, or to motivate the player to organize resources well? :uhm:
