See screenshots and readme below for details, but what this does is:
ADDS names of all functional points to the map of Cordon shown in the PDA.
Works fine, and there is only one file you need to use.. Rest of info in readme, I'll just point here to the original thread containing idea about this mod, and which will be updated with future versions and maps as well: http://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=18415&page=2&sec_id=22
First part was map of Garbage which can be found here: http://stalker.filefront.com/file/PDA_map_with_point_names_Garbage;94726
I have also made Agroprom and Dark Valley maps, and you can find them here: http://stalker.filefront.com/file/PDA_map_with_point_names_Agroprom;94736 http://stalker.filefront.com/file/PDA_map_with_point_names_Dark_Valley;94739
Mod name: PDA map with point names - Cordon v1.0 Author: Lux aka LuxZg Version: 1.0 Date: 11.10.2008. STALKER CS: 18.104.22.168 Description/Changelog: --v1.0-- This mod adds names of points to the Cordon map in your PDA, as they are shown when you get quests. Points included in this map are all those that are valid smart_terrain points for use in current game (1.5.05) This is work in progress, and goal is to have all levels mapped like this. Preview: This is how the map looks.. raw texture (converted to JPEG) - http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/map_escape.jpg Overview on whole Cordon map in the in-game PDA - http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/cordon_pda_map.jpg Zoomed in to the middle of level - http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/cordon_map_zoomed_in.jpg Minimap shows the markings as well (and you see I'm at the correct spot; 2 pictures) - http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/minimap_cordon.jpg ; http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/minimap_cordon2.jpg Maximum zoom-out in PDA, showin all 4 currently made maps plus the Swamp map from Lobstris (soon to be re-made by me to suite the others) - http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh302/LuxZg/4_maps_pda_overview_max_zoom_out.jpg Tested: Tested in 1.5.05, works fine, and no problems at all. Future of this mod: This is probably final Cordon map and will not be changed anymore, unless game devs make more smart_terrains in future patches. Next will be other level's maps.. Initial WIP thread (will contain updates and discussion about all future related map mods): http://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=18415&page=2&sec_id=22 Similar projects: There is already map of Swamps as well, made by Lobstris! Check it out here! http://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=18441&sec_id=21 Styles are different, but idea is the same. So I recommend it completely! At least untill I make my own ;) Credits: Lobstris - for telling me how to use Gimp+DDS plugin - it worked without problems, thanks ;) Blackheim - for telling me where I can find all smart terrain names (configstextengst_smart_terrain_names.xml) jamie1992 and A Lone Hobo - for helping me extract more data from all.spawn files which speeded up development of maps a lot, and made them 100% accurate! me - ofcourse, for making this map 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! P.S. If you do use this in your mods, give credit to me and the rest of the people involved in making of this mod (see my Credits section)! Thanks :)
