hi luke um best i know..you do not have to fight and kill anything..you can run..um i think some bots fight no matter what by default..others like at military posts.if you have no gun in your hands..they still show red but do not fire on you..after talk to them..maybe trade or get and do a mission for them.then your icon is green for friend etc. but again some fire on you no matter what..so be ready to run and or arm your gun fast if needed..note: its hard to really make any money if you are not killing bots and a lot of them loot and trade your stuff for money or better stuff..you can live just on artifacts maybe.or what you find in stashes or dead bodies..i have a bud at abit forums..he literally takes 4 months to finish a game..and will complain he does not have better stuff..well he is just walking around looking at or talking to all the bots..kind of odd to me [ ha ha bots have tight pants maybe:rolleyes::)]..but its his game and has the option to play as he likes.. see ya:)
Here's a bit of info about how modding stalker is going. You need a .DB unpacker to rip open the gamedata files. you need a another tool for the SPAWN.ALL file. After you got the gamedata parts unpacked there is a lot of changes you can make to levels, but it can get really complicated when you do to much at once. The SPAWN.ALL file controls mutant and stalker spawns and is good fun to change but will really put the game off balance, a few too many raids in the wrong place can really screw up the game. You can also re-skin existing 3d models and a few people with have been having a go at modelling as well, for the most daring mods have a look at the SPK mod (russian) and the AMK mod (russian). For mods with loads of mutants and stalkers take a look at the last basix mod. Be sure to have a go at the tutorial type stuff that's been stickied and see if you can get into it most of the stuff is really straightforward, the problems remembering it so you don't have to keep looking stuff up every five minutes. Be sure to reference more than one website. the GSC forums have a lot of good modders and so does Oblivionlost.de they have an english speaking forum that's really good.
OK what tool do i need to open the spawn.all and where is it located and editing that will.. let me spawn npcs where i like :confused:. some1 give me some pictures or an example or even a boot in the head is that will work !
