Top 5 SoC Mods

Hi all,

It's been a while since I've posted last. I'm keen to get back into STALKER but I'm not sure which rate as the best ones for immersion and realism.

Oblivion Lost and AMK did a good job of making the weapons as deadly as they should be.

Do people want to put forward their top 5 so far?

Another fun and enjoyable mod.

There's others out there, like U.L.T.I.M.A.T.E. or the 2013 Mod Pack that have Oblivion Lost and other bits well blended :

Mod Pack 2013 :

Just off the top of my head, there's numerous others, I've mostly returned to these ones over and over again.

Thanks guys, anyone else feel free to contribute. Please try and put the main strengths of the mod so we know why its so special!

It would be good if the mods were easily classifiable. Right now you have to take a look and read through it to get to what you want.

Myself I'm pretty picky on the gun play. If the guns don't feel realistic or I feel like I can bullet sponge then I lose interest quickly. The lethality to me really cements the survivor feel.

These are all great suggestions - I look forward to seeing more.

Maybe some old gems that have stood the test of time that people play as an add on for the vanilla/base game?

Again, please list why each mod is special so others can pick based on its merit.

I like posts like these because its great to take stock of the great mods that have come out and try them again efficiently rather than 'pot luck' trying everything.

Thanks again for the suggestions all!

Oblivion Lost 2.2 - old classic, without thirty thousand other things being thrown in on top of the mix.

Priboi Story (original or overhaul edition) - From team dez0wave. New story, new character. Overhaul is done by 100radsbar, and if I remember right, it adds new weapons and tweaks a bunch of things for the better.

STALKERSOUP - NS + Collector + DMX + DKZ + who knows how many other mods, with stability updates and load time improvements.
