Illustrated Builds - Part I

Took a lot longer than planned, but I finally made some progress on the visual component...

Build 1098

This build features - shock! - a female protagonist.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/3311/1098player.jpg

The player spawns next to a tarpaulin-covered tank thing with some subtle advertising on it.
http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/1830/1098tank.jpg

In combat the player is aided by three cute little robots...
http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/6941/1098friendlyrobot.jpg

...Against waves of vicious little robots.
http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/1404/1098fighting.jpg

"CRY SOME MOOOOORE!"
http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/6081/1098enemyrobot.jpg

Surviving long enough to actually see the Aztec ruins is a challenge in itself.
http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/3294/1098aztectemple.jpg

Build 1114

The player now sports the familiar stalker suit and an early version of Marked One's face. The Agroprom courtyard is a bit less cluttered here.
http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/4166/1114player.jpg

Fighting the extremely spastic proto-Spetsnaz.
http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/6089/1114soldiers.jpg

The original zombie, created by Ruslan Konovalchuk. Konovalchuk's work on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. also included such items as the robots in build 1098, the original crow and rat, and the face of Wolf. The patch on the zombie's shirt is the same as the one on the arms of the stalker suit.
http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/2086/1114zombie.jpg

Reloading the Hi-Power. The animation is borrowed from Counter-Strike's USP.
http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/7838/1114csreload.jpg

In the Cordon, meanwhile, there's not much of a presence at the southern perimeter.
http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/894/1114cordonsouthend.jpg

There are, however, some power lines and pylons.
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/8485/1114cordonpowerlines.jpg

There is also an early version of the under-road tunnel near where the player meets Tolik in the final game.
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/2448/1114cordonroadtunnel.jpg

Instead of a bandit carpark, there is an elevated factory with a bunch of junk scattered below it.
http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/6889/1114cordonfactoryfromad.jpg
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/1838/1114cordonfactoryfrombe.jpg

Looking down at the tunnel from the factory. Note that the AK-74 (which looks more like a confused AKS-47) shares part of its mesh and texture with the Groza in build 1098.
http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3593/1114cordonviewfromuphig.jpg

Looking northward from the same spot. The Chernobyl NPP appears on the skybox.
http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/5223/1114cordonviewfromfacto.jpg

The factory itself.
http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/793/1114cordonfactoryupclos.jpg

The factory was cut somewhere between builds 1935 and 2205, but this garage and damaged building were recycled into the Wild Territory.
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/7450/1114cordonfactorygarage.jpg

These structures near the bridge were completely reworked.
http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/3987/1114cordonnearbridge.jpg

The bridge itself is also quite different.
http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3908/1114cordonbridgetower.jpg

The checkpoint at the north end would be rebuilt as well. The road between here and the bridge is considerably longer than in the final product, though there's not much of interest along it.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/2660/1114cordonnorthend.jpg

Build 1154

The view from atop the Agroprom rail tunnel - the green, it burns!
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/1257/1154agroprom.jpg

There's a semblance of an outpost at the Cordon...
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/2848/1154cordonsouthend.jpg

...And a rookie village occupied by soldiers.
http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/6508/1154cordonrookievillage.jpg

The factory is now at a more accessible elevation.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/8236/1154cordonfactory.jpg

The bridge hasn't changed much, though.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/8918/1154cordonbridge.jpg

Build 1469

One thing I forgot to mention about build 1469 is its primitive inventory system, which can be seen even when nothing else can.
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/6444/1469inventory.jpg

Build 1511

A regular stalker and an ecologist.
http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/9987/1511stalkers.jpg

"Psst... How long do I have to hold this pose?"
http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/3957/1511ecostalker.jpg

I don't remember ever seeing this guy in the end release.
http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/8269/1511whoisthis.jpg

An original exoskeleton stalker, hanging out inside the sarcophagus. This version persisted until at least build 2205, and the 2205 model can be used in the final game without modification.
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/9656/1511exo.jpg

Freedom looks quite familiar...
http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/8065/1511freedomstalker.jpg

...As does Duty.
http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/2923/1511dutystalker.jpg

Captain Ivantsov's salad days?
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/9869/1511ivantsov.jpg

A military stalker. Konovalchuk had created a version of this character as early as the Oblivion Lost days.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/7639/1511militarystalker.jpg

The other white meat.
http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/7230/1511flesh.jpg

An earlier stage in the evolution of the blind dog.
http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/9239/1511blinddog.jpg

"Duck, you sucker!"
http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/1407/1511sucker.jpg

The 3D inventory display is pretty cool, except that it uses the ambient light (which is invariably either too much or too little)...
http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/797/1511inventory3d.jpg

...And draws the first person weapon model over the selected item.
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/9223/1511inventoryglitch.jpg

Drivable vehicles include manually opened doors and utterly atrocious physics. In the background, Lenin declares the revolution will be motorized.
http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/1395/1511truck.jpg

Agroprom showdown: Marked One takes on his evil ecologist twin.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/6018/1511fight.jpg

"This is MY world! You are not welcome in my world!"
http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/8454/1511kaboom.jpg

One of the test maps. This one was apparently meant for playing Ragdoll Roadkill.
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/3581/1511vehicletest.jpg

The Agroprom has more detail now, at least inside of the fence.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/2497/1511agropromfamiliar.jpg

The Dead City is pretty impressive...
http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/8480/1511deadcity.jpg

...As are the Generators. After the level was cut, the generators themselves were incorporated into the NPP. The ground anomalies reappeared in Clear Sky.
http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/8584/1511generators.jpg

The Brain Scorcher itself didn't change much...
http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/1305/1511radarwide.jpg

...But there's no access to the underground bunker, and the area is completely walled in.
http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/5623/1511radarnotunnel.jpg

Likewise the Army Warehouses are largely finished, though the outside terrain is not and there are parked helicopters where Screw and Max are found in the release version.
http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/8725/1511warehousesuphigh.jpg

One part of the Warehouses which did change was this section on the west side, where Skull and friends will dynamite the wall in the completed game.
http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/9386/1511warehousesthiswasch.jpg

That's all for now. Happy holidays, everyone!

Lovely post BobBQ!

I still think that the 1114 Cordon looks better than the retail one.

Was there any info on build 1850? I heard that it's a fully functional build, but that it's locked by a password.

I sure liked the pylons and the factory.

It's thought to be a mid-2004 multiplayer build with an MP Agroprom map and possibly some SDK stuff, but nobody has been able to get it unpacked yet. If anyone does, I will most definitely add it to the guide.

Here's how the 1511 alpha SEVA suit looked like:

And here's a 'fixed' version I made for my TBD mod.

Totally irrelevant.I always feel that the atmosphere would of been better if they had the cordon stalker village situated OUTSIDE the zone perimeter.Then the bridge as it is now would of had tons of army men walking the length of the train tracks and so no chance of entry.But thru Sidorovich you get access in from one shady military person who allows people in for a price situated under the tunnel.

Another thing would of been kool is the bridge being a checkpoint and if you stand there you see military trucks filled with troops entering and leaving the zone.They of course are there to kill any stalkers who try to bring the artifacts out to sell on the blackmarket.

Instead we have a stalker rookie camp situated right inside the military outpost and a guy tryingto talk people out of going any further into zone on a megaphone while drinking vodka. Tons of military men everywhere,trucks with troops coming and going,helicoptors traversing the perimeter and sirens blazing would of really made enteringthe zone seem forbidden.
