Are the devs at GSC even the same as the first? I'm excited but cautiously.

I don't think a lot of people know, because it's so early in the development cycle.

its a vaporware scam to create hype and temporarily increase the sales of the 3 released STALKER games.

STALKER 2 isnt going to happen. Save this post.

None of the STALKER games were developed by the same team, all they need is slav magic

A portion of them are. Four SoC devs left after the game launched and formed 4A and are making the metro series, and everyone responsible for the fucking mistake of development that GSC's last attempt of STALKER 2 was got canned, but they still have a lot of people from the old days based off Cassocks 3's dev roster.

no, they all left to go make a f2p game thats been in early access for 3 years. DO NOT expect this to be anything like the original three games.

somebody wasn't here yesterday for the sticky

This is literally a lie. You can compare the SoC and CoP devs to the devs on Cossocks 3.

it's a slav studio
and that's a proven fact
so it's kinda plausible

Fuck I should REALLY play these now huh. I have been meaning to play them since like 2009.

Are there any absolutely vital mods? Things like unofficial patches. I dont even want graphics packs

Fuck me. Life is nice and all but I miss having videogame time and being a NEET faggot.
>>
>>416535594
Well considering they came out of nowhere and released Cossacks 3 without prior announcement I'm willing to bet STALKER 2 will actually happen.
>>
>>416534325
Buying any of the STALKER games don’t even go to the devs headass. Why do you think the community tells you to torrent it.
>>
You think the storyline will be the same as the leaked story? I didn't really like the idea of the Zone being government controlled, the story also felt like a very generic FPS.
>>
I've tried getting into the series. Tell me what's good about them because what I'm playing feels very average
>>
>>416536269
>tell me what to think about a game
No. Play it and form your own opinion.
>>
>>416536269
You either understand why or you don't. If it needs to be explained to you, unfortunately, the game probably isn't meant for you.
>>
>>416536450
It feels average at best. I don't see the hype for it
>>
>>416533929
>are the devs the same
probably only the money hungry president that screwed over the devs of the original paying them shit while raking in tonsa money

i hear some devs are working on escape from tarkov, this weird loot based exploration fps against both other players and ai, where you can pick to be either a cheeki breeki bandit and not risk losing your current gear but go in with randomly selected shit gear or a full blown operator with your good gear but you can lose it. first time i heard "multiplayer" i thought no thanks, but turns out it shares some of the atmosphere of the original stalker.
>>
None of the games had the same team
>>
>>416535762
I usually just get ZRP and thats all. There are some other quality of life mods out there, but avoid the complete pack at all costs. Somebody in this thread likely has the image that explains exactly why you shouldn't get it.
>>

don't worry, after the divorce you'll have more time for yourself

>>
>>416536686
Its the zone, I can't explain shit. Its a niche game. if you don't get it you're either a smoothbrain or a normie.
>>
>>416536838
wait, tell me why, i've been playing up til im about to get into priryat with the fucking complete mod.
what mod should i get? i hear misery is awful
>>
>>416539102
ZRP for your first playthrough of Shadow of Chernobyl, then whatever the fuck you want when you're done. AMK is usually recommended as baby's first mod. If anyone ever decides to revive the general on /vg/ theres mod lists and mega repos for tons of shit.
>>
>>416539413
how about for CoP?
>>
>>416535762
Zone Reclamation Project
>>
>>416539498
CoP requires no additional mods to have a good vanilla experience. Honestly the only mod I have played for CoP was SGM and it was fucking WILD in both good and bad ways.

fuck, i assumed complete was just the go to mod, no idea it just makes the game fucking easier. i'm 10-20 hours in, don't really want to fucking restart, shit.

>>416539919
just start with the first one. I haven't played the 2nd, but I hear its not as good as the 1st and 3rd. the 3rd is pretty cool so far, but I'm going to replay the 1st after, I haven't played it in a long time, I think it might have been better. more spooky, at least.

>>
>>416534107
They might be trying to hire people off of hype.
>>
>>416536706
They said only one of their devs was an ex stalker dev. Maybe that's changed.

Tarkov definitely isn't stalker, but in terms of exploration and semi post disaster atmosphere, it comes pretty close. They just released a new map that's a massive three floor shopping mall/hardware store/Ikea complex. Gameplay is a little rough at times but it's worth checking oit.

Either Last Day or MLR for Call of Chernobyl. Some anon did a translation (kinda) for the OGSE 0693 2.11 weapon mod and it fixes one of the biggest issues about OGSE.

Because they're retarded and didn't hear that GSC is back. Obviously it doesn't go to the asshats making Metro and Survarium but it goes to GSC.

Sergey isn't involved directly in the studio anymore. His brother is. Sergey is basically retired, at least that's what they said when Cossacks 3 was announced.

Many stalker fans assumed it was long dead. This announcement is fucking gold to stalker fans. Even if it is another 3 years off.
>>
>>416533929
Does it matter, really? Making this game a worthy successor isn't fucking rocket science. SoC was an unfinished mess and is objectively a 7/10 at best. What it managed to excel in was delivering an immersive and very atmospheric experience, one that makes the game quite memorable. All they have to do is not fuck that up.
>>
>>416539498
>how about for CoP?
I really liked my play through with Atmosfear 3, MSO, and what I think was Arsenal Overhaul.
>>
>>416540836
alright good to hear that.
>>
>>416541674
I think the thing to worry about most is them making a watered down consolized game. Especially if it does end up being on UE4. I'm hoping they know where their audience is though unlike CDPR.

Engine isn't multithreaded. I imagine there are some graphical limits too. I think the grass is rendered on the CPU so modifying it too much and having too much will swamp your CPU. Same with raising the distance that AI works at.

SoC is better, but yeah Clear Sky is good. Just disappointed with how little exploring it warrants for you in most of the areas unless you go iut and hunt down every single side quest and do every dingle faction war
