I, personally, am nowhere near the end of the game yet, and I enjoy taking my time in games. I played Morrowind for hundreds of hours before even joining the blades. I have played Oblivion for over 200 hours and still only entered one or two gates.
However, I am safe in the knowledge that in those games, when I do finally complete the game, I will be able to continue. From what I have read, the same will not be true in this game (The Edge review I read mentions this, in a non-spoiler way).
Is there perhaps any way someone can make a mod that allows the game to continue to be played after the credits roll? I hate it when long games (such as some RPGs) force you to reload a save, for example, from before you beat the last boss.
I don't know if such a mod is possible, or if the SDK would be needed to do it. The chances are I won't be completing this game for a good few months yet, but I just like to keep one long save, usually, so I don't like the idea of having to start the game right from scratch again. It wouldn't be so bad if it allowed you to save at the end of the game and then take that "character" into a new game...
Thanks for any help on this.
Well, i cant mod at all but that sounds really cool. Therefore, i am requesting the exact thing The person above me requested. It would be cool to continue after the end...
as of now tho ... you can re-save a point in the game under a different name and go back to it later . Personally, I saved a point in Pripyat so I can play different endings or go back in the map. Now, in the short game ending, it would be kinda weird to continue beyond the credits and you'll see why when you get there. In the long game endings ... I think some of them could be worked out to continue beyond credits, tho even that would be a stretch and somewhat anti-climactic. I see the SDK as an opportunity to expand the game with more maps and missions, maybe make some side-missions more intense. Playing beyond the credits in this game for some reason just doesn't fit right into the story (but it's more a matter of personal opinion than a fact). However, don't forget the sequel to this game is in the works :)

Yeah i still think an expansion would be better for STALKER though.
or how about a whole Total conversion that continues the story through someone elses eyes?

That would still involve starting with a new inventory and the like, however, which is the main reason I would like to continue after completion, rather than having to start a whole new file, you know?
Still, the thought of total conversion mods (probably once the SDK is released) certainly "whets" my "appetite".
