How are you guys getting such gorgeous looking screenshots? Here is what it looks like for me with everything turned up to the max using DX10.1 (except AA is off because it causes glitches on distant foliage) and further draw distances enabled.

Like I said, everything is enabled and as high as it goes - the only things disabled are vsync, AA and DX11. Surely things can't look THAT bad when only missing out on AA and DX11. SoC with LURK or Complete 2009 looks far better than that. I'm seeing orgasm-in-a-JPEG in other people's screenshots but mine is more like... digital blueballs?

I have a problem with detector quest. Normally when i get wealth achievement Owl should sell me Veles detectors. But he's not selling them. I got 2 detectors but can't find 3rd. Anyone knows what to do?

WEll, not many of the shots seem to be of landscapes such as this one. Maybe they are downsampled and AAd.

None of the sun shadow stuff shows up on a cloudy day. The game only looks good with alot of dynMic light. Try taking some shots of campfires at night.

the screens that look good are carefully selected angles with certain mods and lots of image downsizing. they are misleading screens

I think it takes a while until Owl and other traders get better equipment (incl. Veles detectors) once you have unlocked the wealth archivement. Alternatively you can check out this walkthrough guide. http://guides.gamepressure.com/stalk...de.asp?ID=9001
