Here's one, it's called Stalker Complete. I tried but all it does is crash the game. Maybe you'll have better luck.

That works & looks great, Thanks .... Does anybody know is there anyway to for some AA?

I have the in-game slider to the max and there's still some pretty bad jaggies in-game!

Default Re: Stalker mods.

Just yesterday I posted this at Overclock.net relating to stalker mods

I have played many mods in the past (AMK, ABC Inferno, OL, Complete 2009, LURK etc) and this is by far the best one I have played yet.
-------------------------------------------------------------
So I've been wanting to play Narodnaya Solyanka mod for a LONG time now, especially after watching these videos of it a while back:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSH2s...el_video_title

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAYGK...el_video_title

Downloading (getting a hold of the proper files + patches + english translations is very tough indeed), so recently I got back into STALKERa after taking a short hiatus and discovered on the GSC forums that someone had merged Narodnaya Solyanka + DMX mod (DMX mod info here: http://www.amk-team.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=8977) + english translation (not perfect, but very playable) + tweaks of his own for a smooth merger.

I am enjoying this mod, So decided to share the info with those of you who would be interested in such a mod.

-----------------------------

All files for mod + patches + proper documentation and install instructions can be found here:
http://j5films.ca/externalsites/nond...kz_02_English/

Screenshots here:
http://dariuskzoot.imgur.com/

---------------------------

My screenshots:





















If you haven't yet I suggest you guys give the mod a run to see if its to your liking.

Enjoy fellow STALKERS!

Breakdown of what mod encompasses:

- You can go prone
- New storyline to follow (many new characters to meet and tons of new quests)
- Their are portals that let you travel from one location to another with ease.
- Many new types of anomalies present in the world, which all randomly spawn. When you reload a saved game for example, the anomalies will be in a different places. Keeping things fresh and you can't memorize the pattern and avoid anomalies.
- You mention about carrying tons of artifacts in original Narodnaya Solyanka yes, but in this version of the mod you can only carry 18 on your belt. Some artifacts you can't put in your belt, only for selling purposes. When you pick up an artifact you take some damage, get dizzy and possibly get radiation sickness if you don't quickly put it in your "artifact container" you start of with a container that has a slot for one, you can buy more containers later from merchants right now I have one container that let's me carry 8 artifacts.
- Artifacts randomly spawn as well, making for each playthrough to be unique.
- More merchants available in game world.
- Recipes to make your own artifacts available through quests etc.
- Player can play guitar, harmonica. Smoke a cigarette (when you lose stamina, no more running for you stalker)
- Many types of vodka, many types of foods to choose from (for when character gets hungry etc.) (No more just bread and sausage!)
- MP3 player can be bought from merchant with many songs, additional usb drives can be bought with even more music (that stick to theme and atmosphere)
- Many new locations and maps from clear sky.

..............and lots more I am forgetting right now or haven't seen yet.

Many more await me, just need to play it more.

The Complete Mods are awesome. Unfortunately, I finished SoC and CS before the mods got out. For CoP, I waited until this mod was released and it makes a huge difference. Can't wait to play some more CoP Compete
I had a quick read of the comments. Are people trying to say 1080p is higher res?!

Narodnaya Solyanka is definitely the best mod for SoC.

But quite a few are thinking that TVs or multiple TVs are better. I don't agree with that
I LOL'd at the ones recommended 46"+ screens. Could you image a screen that big so close? You'd get a saw neck looking around at everything. ::
