This "FPS Fun Pack" aims to make playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. a more enjoyable and smoother experience. I think the authors words say it best.
This mod was made for the people that tried the game and didn't like it. A lot of people have started playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and got very discouraged... sometimes enough to quit playing the game outright. This mod is meant to take out some of the things that I thought were a pain...and to make the game more enjoyable and smoother running. Any mod could be considered a cheat....it really depends on how you use it. This game is not a true FPS type game...this mod tends to make it seem more like a FPS than it really is, and still try to maintain the spirit of the game. This mod was designed for the less experienced gamers...but even more "hardcore" gamers might get a kick out of it!
This mod is a variant of the original FPS Fun Pack. It will have a somewhat higher difficulty level than the original. You will have to think about food, ammo, and health items now as they are very scarce!
FatRaps FPS Fun Pack LEAN AND MEAN for 1.0004 Patch Only! by J. Rogers (email@example.com) PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE...... READ CAREFULLY!!! This mod was made for the 1.0004 Patch and it will require starting a new game! This mod is a variant of the original FPS Fun Pack. It will have a somewhat higher difficulty level than the original. You will have to think about food, ammo, and health items now as they are very scarce! Life in the Zone has taken a turn for the worse. Gone are the days of fully stocked shelves at your local trader. Everyone is feeling the pinch... the bodies you search are almost dead broke. The rewards and stashes are barely enough to get you by. Ammo and health supplies are hard to come by. You may have to set your favorite weapons aside while you build up ammo reserves for them. Food is almost non-existant...... you will have to hunt down mutants for your food! You have to plan your missions carefully or you could easily run out of supplies. REMEMBER this game is pretty buggy to begin with and even though this mod fixes a lot of those bugs the developers missed in the latest patch, I am sure there are some more lurking about. Even with this mod, it is a good idea to make periodic "saves". Many, many thanks to all the S.T.A.L.K.E.R modders out there... your work is truly appreciated! I would like to give credit to the following modders: bardak NatVac hawk318 Speed natasha8384 farcrychris gullgotha cisco256 PiIsARational Bolm onionradish Save Balnazzar gannebamm dezodor Melodic Ceano Kanyhalos Sergeant Kelly Matressi FacTor-X Victim silverpower Hectrol And, last but not least, all the members of the different forums who have posted ideas, suggestions, fixes and frustrations. Your thoughts have been a tremendous help! I used Save's CarryMod3, onionradish's ShowReward Mod, Hectrol's Stalker Mini Mod 0.5 and bardak's stk10004 bug fix attempt in this pack, and I used ideas or concepts from mods such as ABC Mod, Basix Mod, olmod, AMK Mod and many others. If I have failed to mention you or your mod, I sincerely apologize. You all did some tremendous work! INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Note! To use this mod you must edit the file "fsgame.ltx" in your installation folder... for instance C:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl Change the second line from: $game_data$ = false| true| to: $game_data$ = true| true| Then, extract the files in the mod pack to a temporary folder and then copy the folder "gamedata" to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. folder. This will prevent accidentally over-writing files by extracting directly to the game directory. This mod pack modifies many files and will require starting a new game. Also, it probably will not work with other mods unless you merge the files very carefully!! If you try to over-write the files, your game will probably crash. HERE IS WHAT THIS MOD CHANGES: Modified 4 unique weapons and 2 armors. "FatRapper" - A modified VLA Special Assault Rifle that you can attach a SUSAT scope to that has true sniper scope magnification. Accuracy, reliability, and durability all increased. Power level of existing sniper rifles in the Zone. Magazine capacity increased to 30 rounds. "FatRap Snork Sweeper" - A modified Viper submachinegun that you can carry in your pistol slot. Rechambered to fire all 12 ga. shotgun ammunition. Full choke barrel narrows buckshot dispersion. Never run from a mutant again! "FatRap Kruzer S14" - A modified Tunder S14 that is rechambered to fire all 5.56 ammunition. Will also fire both VOG and M209 grenades. Magazine capacity increased to 30 rounds and power level slightly increased. "FatRap Kommander" - A fully automatic silenced Colt 1911 that has been rechambered to fire all 9X18 and 9X19 ammunition. Magazine capacity 25 rounds. Power increased to .45 ACP +P+ power level. Very high rate of fire with minimal recoil due to special porting in the barrel. Very accurate! Ideal weapon to start with. "FatRap Zoner" - A modified Protection suit that is suitable for all areas of the Zone. Tired of those numerous trips to the traders? This suit enables you to carry an additional 450 kilos! It offers protection levels on par with the Military/Ecologist/ Scientific suits that currently exist in tne Zone. With the proper artifacts in your belt, this suit is ideal for STALKERS! This suit is equipped with the better night vision. "FatRap Grunt" - A modified Stalker suit that allows you to transport an additional 600 kilos. It has a lower protection level than the standard Stalker suit resulting in a lower cost. A true workhorse, and very inexpensive. Basic carry weight increased to 150 kilos....(175 max.) (Helps reduce the task of multiple trips to the traders. To carry even more use the special armors!) Explosives can now be carried. (Very useful in tasks such as "Kill the STALKER" or "Destroy the Duty Squad") Belt slots increased from 5 to 7 slots. (Adds more flexability in artifact selection) Corpse stay time reduced from 36 hrs to 3 hrs. for humans and .5 hr for mutants. (Reduces game clutter, stuttering, and load times.) Mutants are your main food source. The body parts they had before have been replaced with food items. The body parts will now appear in stashes so you can still complete the "Find the mutant part" type quests. Inventory of traders reduced to a minimum. Food items are no longer for sale at the traders. Traders will offer different prices for both buying and selling. (HINT! Yantar trader pays premium prices because he is in a location that is more remote than the other traders.) Freedom trader (Skinflint) has unlimited buying power like the other traders. (You will learn how he got his name when you see his prices!) You can trade more items with other STALKERS. (You can PROPERLY equip all your comrades!) Tasks have less rewards than previously. Just the bare essentials are given for task rewards and for treasure locations. Task time limit extended to 5 days. (Allows you to organize your jobs and enjoy the game instead of running back and forth through the levels just to meet a deadline!) Fixed the faulty task in Yantar...Where the request was for a mutant boars leg, but the true target was a pseudodog tail!! Box size of some ammunition lowered to limit inventory, and 12 ga. buckshot pellet count increased from 10 pellets to 15 pellets. "Terrible Reputation" bug fixed! (Reputation will not toggle from "Excellent" to "Terrible" as easily.) Dialog will show the reward when you ask for a job. (Nice to know if a job is worth the effort.) Flashlight has been modified to give better vision range with less glare. Some artifacts have been tweaked a little...for instance, "Moonlight" has had the negative electrical shock aspect removed. (HINT!) You really want to find or earn the artifacts "Pellicle" and "Moonlight" !!!) Crows are now shoot-able...this is just a feature to let you improve your "snap-shooting" abilities! This is a little buggy... sometimes the crows will fall to earth and sometimes they stay airborne and pirouette! The jumping ability has been enhanced...you can now jump further and higher. Certain NPC's have different starting weapons. For instance Fox will now have a Snork Sweeper instead of a sawn-off shotgun and Wolf has a FatRapper. Wide screen patch incorporated in this mod. NPC's are more resistant to dying in fires. The weapon you are given by Wolf at the beginning of the game has been changed from a PB to a FatRap Kommander. Added Hectrol's wonderful texture mod. It "freshens" up the game for those who have played it as much as I have! If for some reason you do not want to use it, simply delete the ACT folder that resides in the gamedata/textures directory. It might cause decreased performance in some computer systems that are memory challenged. I also used a new texture for the mp5 that I believe was made by FacTor-X and Mattressi. I hope I have the credits correct! Known bugs: 1. After you complete the task of getting the information from Mole about Streloks stash, the game will crash if you come back to him at a later time and re-engage in the same dialog with him. Just go about your business and ignore him if he starts a repeat dialog with you. (After I complete the task with Mole, I usually go back and wipe out the newly arrived task force and scrounge all the carnage! If I take too long, this triggers Mole to repeat his dialog.) 2. Not really a bug, just a side-effect of the faster corpse-removal time....If you save a game when dead bodies are present and then you re-load the save, those dead bodies will be gone unless they are a "perma-corpse" or if they contain PDA info such as stash locations, etc. So, I suggest you raid all the bodies before you save the game and reload. Or, if you want to get rid of the clutter, just save and reload! Helpful Hints! I don't want to create a spoiler here, but I would suggest that when you first start the game, avoid meeting with Wolf's people for a while. Instead, do the "other" jobs he offers you (such as eliminate the boars lair) and explore as much as possible without leaving the Cordon map. You can pick up enough artifacts, supplies and armor to go back to the trader and buy better equipment. Now, you are ready to take on the bandit camp and if you do all the tasks for Wolf, Nimble, and the trader....you should get rewarded with enough goodies to get you through the first 1/3 of the game. You will want to buy the sniper rifle and the SUSAT scope and the "Grunt" armor as soon as you can....I would suggest that you do this before going to do the tasks with Mole. About artifacts....the most useful combination of artifacts to carry in your belt would be 3 Moonlights, 2 Pellicles, and 2 Crystals. It pays to carry an extra Moonlight with you if you get an extremely heavy load and you need to sprint a long distance. A Night Star can replace one of the Crystals. So be cautious about trading these artifacts off or giving them up for a task. In my opinion, with the exceptions of Battery, Spring, and Mama's Beads, the rest of the artifacts are just trading fodder. Plan your missions carefully.... Cordon is your main source of food. You need to stockpile it in order to have enough for the later game levels! Also, because the mutant parts have been replaced by food items, you will now find mutant parts in stashes. Save these and don't trade them off because you will need these items for jobs that the various traders will give you!
