HUD and Blood

hud_and_blood_v1.zip —


Here is a mod that will add more blood splatters/smears to walls and re-locate parts of the HUD. As you can see in the screenshots, the HUD items are shifted down towards the bottom of the screen, providing you with a clearer view. There is also a greater 'blood puff' from when an opponent is hit. In addition to all this, there is a smaller crosshair, and no crosshair when there isn't an item equipped.

All in all, a relatively simple mod with it's own perks. There is no need to restart the game from the beginning, just extract the files and go! :)

My English is not good, so please check previews instead. :D


1. Copy all files from "gamedata" into... 
   ..\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata

2. (I'm not sure whether this procedure is required or not)
   Open "..\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\fsgame.ltx" with a text editor.
   Change the second line to...
   $game_data$   		= true|		true|	$fs_root$|		gamedata\

3. No need to start the game from beggining. Just load your save data.

[Known Problems]

Single Player: None

Multi Player: Since this mod changes a few config files, you can't connect unmodded server with this mod installed. 

When you want to play multiplayer...

	Workaround A: Change the name of the following folder to something else (like "@config").
	 ..\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata\config
	 If you do this, only modified textures and sounds will be activated.
	 You should re-rename the folder to "config" for offline play.

	Workaround B: Rename "..\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata".
	 If you do this, all of the custom stuffs you installed will be temporally disabled.
	 You should re-rename the folder to "gamedata" for offline play.
[Using with another MODs]

I edited "..\gamedata\config\system.ltx" to get a smaller crosshair and bigger blood effects.
This can be a cause of problems when using with another MODs.
In that case, delete my system.ltx and do the following.

1. Open system.ltx from the MOD you want to use (or currently using) with a text editor.
2. Change the line 156-161 as follows.

	wallmarks			= wm\wm_blood_1,wm\wm_blood_2,wm\wm_blood_3,wm\wm_blood_4,wm\wm_blood_5,wm\wm_blood_6
	dist				= 4.0	;2.0 ;2.4	
	max_size			= 0.5   ;0.4 ;0.3
	min_size			= 0.1   ;0.06
	nominal_hit			= 0.5   ;0.5

3. Go to the line 183. Change "cross_length = 0.015" to "cross_length = 0.002".
4. Install all of the my files except "system.ltx". 

I learned how to edit "system.ltx" from Huztle's Stalker MOD. Thank you! 
Long live STALKER!!
