What i would like is to have the game much harder, even on master level. Id love money to come hard, i want to hunt, stalk, steal and save up for my equipment. The first raid on carpark, the bandit sweep is the MOST interseting part of the game imo, because its hard, every movement can be your last. Basically id love the game(money and equipment) to come harder and nights much darker. Also a freeplay after 1st time finish so i can explore prypjat and npp like in ABC Inferno mod. Is there something out there that does these things and ONLY these things, or atleast doesnt make u and uberosoldier who can stand in the middle of 10 bloodsuckers and still play his guitar. I want the whole game to be as interesting as the first level. Im sure im not the only one who likes a challenge, a game full of tension and surprises. I know what u will think, if you are so picky make the damn mod yourself! But i dont have practically no experience in Stalker modding. All my modding attempts have failed miserably. I can alter what trader sells at best rofl! So if anyone who can make this rather easy (compared to the huge and complex mods out there(looking at ABC and Fiakes lol)) mod or if there is a mod that does these things please gimme a linky. P.S. Thank you to all modders, experienced and newbs alike, we casual gamers really appreciate your efforts to prolong this marvelous games life! Thank you! Everyone say "aye" if u agree! :rofl:
You'd have to get alot of seperate mods for all that. You could get the pitch black (Modifications: Stalker - Pitch Black Mod - Demo Movie Patch Download Section - GamersHell.com) mod for dark nights (really dark). The redux mod(S.T.A.L.K.E.R. REDUX VERSION, Stalker Downloads, Stalker Singleplayer) displays harder firefights but more armour and and artifacts play a larger rule. Honestly, thats all i know of, you've just gotta search around a bit. (P.S I've got no idea how to put a link in a name like: and you can get it here. Can someone let me know how?
Harder firefights.... I tried this by opening every weapon file and doubling all damage. NPC's all use the same weapons as you, so it is still balanced. Gunfights are much shorter, 1 or two shot affairs with bandits and the like. Fights against experienced Stalkers like the military are lethal. I ended up peeking round every corner, much like the first raid on the bandits. I also enjoyed that and hoped the rest of the game would follow. However, I found I was quickloading a bit too much later on when you have snipers taking potshots at you in Pripryat!! One side effect though, you don't use half as much ammo, and never have to buy any!! It would take some balancing that is probably beyond me...
Is there a mod on making darker nights but not that dark. Just darker than the original settings but not so dark that i cant see anything....and which also affects AI.
