Just curious.....how long exactly does it take for "all the craziness" to start? I am playing with SmP 2.4....and I just added in Faction Wars after I completed the game. As it stands I need more mutant adversaries...humans basically don't hurt me with their puny guns lol.
Yep. If you've started a new game, clear the military under the bridge and some NPCs will move into Cordon because the path isn't "too blocked".
You'll mostly see Duty, Bandits and Loners roaming around the southern parts of the Zone. Although I've seen Freedom and Military quite a few times. (Watch out, since Freedom is neutral to Bandits, they might share a camp together, you might hit a Freedom guy with a stray bullet turning the whole faction against you)
Faction Wars gives a lot of randomness to the game, I never play any other SoC mod without it.
---QUOTATION--- @jamie, what exactly is changed in the all.spawn?
I would need to merge with mine (although i cant even remember what i've changed in mine lol) ---END QUOTATION---
*Trys to trace back to 2009*
If I recalll all my changes, I change positions of the original spawns a tad, to more open spaces, I opened up the way-points to more than just a specific faction, and I also tweaked the Smart Terrains slightly, I haven't opened that all.spawn in a good 2 years and I've not touched any modding for stalker in a good 6 months so my memory of it all is pretty much shot, as in nearly everything else I learnt whilst modding, feel free to email me any specifics and I'll do my best to answer.

If i had the task to do a faction war i would do:
- create multi terrains by enabling more then one community in basic smarts (especially general_lager, general_lairs)
- slightly increase the capacity of smarts to get more npcs attracted to it
- fiddle around with the respawners to balance the whole faction war thingy
- maybe implement some new jobs in smarts which are exclusive for a certain faction (eg. a camp with cap 6, 3 exclusive for duty, 3exclusive for freedom; both triplettes have same logic)
But cant you just open the ltx files with notepad++ and highlight the changes?
