This is fix for PDA map/minimap for Military warehouses level. Contains NO additions, just adjustments of the map so it matches the "reality" in the level.
Please - post comments so I know what else to fix for version 1.0!
Rest of info is in the readme and pictures provided below..
P.S. Btw, I will continue with map-mods (with added point names) only when I finish and adjust this map, as this is really bothering me, and I can't make modded maps from original files that are so badly placed..
Mod name: PDA map fix for Military warehouses - v0.8 Author: Lux aka LuxZg Version: 0.8 Date: 18.10.2008. STALKER CS: 188.8.131.52 Description/Changelog: --v0.8-- This is a fix for a major map mismatch that occurs in the level of Military warehouses. To describe it in short, I think it's better to look at the pictures. But in original game when you're inside house, map will be showin you 10-15 meters away. My map fixes this problem, and is better than I've expected. THIS MAP HAS NO POINT NAMES! THIS IS JUST A MISMATCH FIX OF ORIGINAL FILE! Still, another problem occurs, where my new map doesn't match the global_map texture. So I've done a half-makeover to ui_global_map.dds as well. But this was just a rough fix, and it is the reason why this wasn't v1.0 but I've named it v0.8. It's still first public version of this fix, but I had a hundered internal revisions non the less :P :) Preview: First and second picture show the same position, but in minimap you can clearly see the difference. Same thing goes for PDA map, but haven't made a comparision as it's not that obvious due to HUGE actor/player icon in the PDA map: http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/mismatch1.jpg http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/mismatch2.jpg Next a comparision of globalmaps. First is the original map+original global map http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/originalglobalmap.jpg And than you have my properly positined map but a problematic only half-adjusted global map: http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/myhalf-fixedglobalmapwithfixedmap.jpg To make it more clear, highlited in red are parts which should be fixed in next version: http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/myhalf-fixedglobalmapwithfixedmap-h.jpg Since I believe that map/minimap is more important than this small error with global map, I am posting this online. Please report any problems or further mismatches, either in map or global map, so I can make a better finalised maps.. Also, once I finish this fix I will make my map-mod with point names from this fixed map. Tested: Tested in 1.5.05, works fine, and no problems except that one with global map mismatch which I believe is a minor thing. Credits: me - ofcourse, for making this fix original developer - for making such a stupid mistake, so I can fix it :P :D INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS (by an unknown Stalker - but thank you anyway!) -----INSTALL------------------------------------------ Simply put the gamedata to your Stalker CS directory And change the line in fsgame file from: $game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata to: $game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata ------------------------------------------------------ Enjoy!
