Another MOD pack?
Seems so. It's sad that no one wants to create anything original =\

Although I understand that you don't wish to offend, I can't say I wasn't a little tiffed at the idea that no original features were added.

Every single aspect regarding weapon parameters, NPC scaling, especially AI parameters have been completely overhauled. I've designed skins for each and every character model, ported content from Clear Sky, and so on and so forth.

Lots of effort has gone into making L.U.R.K. distinct, refined, and fun. While incorporating brand new features, that are of course still being implemented as we speak. Making new things is difficult when merging and balancing is on your top priority list, quality over quantity is the primary goal.

I'm sorry for the misnames, and as I've stated in the main post, I'll talk to Psycho in order to correct the mistakes in naming.

What a gloomy outlook! People are doing original things, too: ZRP, Ambient Audio Overhaul, Nandersen's mods, etc.

I don't want to be rude or offensive, it's not my style, the images are nice, everything is clear and good, but i cant understand, why do everyone release the same modpacks over and over again with the same or very similar features under different names.

Actually one thing i didnt like (this one was the reason why i posted): incorrectly written names, such as xStream's name (i dont know what that Holden guy did for the aipack, but i wouldn't add the origi author to the end of the list) or BAC9-FLCL's name (if BACL is an other guy, then my apologies). They wont be angry though, i just found it important to post it, because i dont like when someone calls me "dezoder" too.

PS: don't listen to me, im just burnt out, and i don't want to make anyone sad or angry, just wrote down my opinion.

L.U.R.K.: Overhaul Discussion

L.U.R.K.: Overhaul


The purpose of L.U.R.K. is to create features, and take pre-existing features from other mods deemed positive, and merge them as well as completely overhaul every aspect of them in order to create a balanced and rewarding experience. Much effort was put into preserving and improving the original atmosphere and balance of Vanilla Stalker, while adding more gameplay elements to the formula. Although we're nearing our first release, we've been consistently adding and changing features based on community input at our discretion. We're working hard to create the definitive Stalker experience.

This mod was founded and being developed from the 4chan /v/ and /k/ community.

Please note that your support and suggestions are important to this mods success and completion. We're always looking for input from the community, and we wish to emphasize that by all means necessary.

New grass sprites and grass placement from Clear Sky
Note: Clear Sky increased the grass sprite variety and grass density, as well as distance to a considerable degree
(GSC: Clear Sky, Holden)

New color mapping for every level
Note: Color mapping is what gives terrain variety and diversity, as well as reduces the visible tiling effect from ground textures
(Holden, BACL)

Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, Steep Parallax, Improved HDR, Stronger Shadow Contrast, etc..

Overhauled weather system, randomized, dynamic weather structure, saturated sunrises and sunsets, rich shadow contrast etc..
Note: Weather wasn't created under the concept of realism, rather aesthetics and gameplay

Overhauled AI structure, including dynamic light visibility parameters, flanking capabilities, medkit usage, dragging corpses etc..
(Holden, Xtream)

Various bugfixes

And many more features implemented from our team and other modders
I apologize in advance for any miscrediting/lack of crediting in the features, and I implore you to correct me whenever possible.

Also, if anyone wants to hear from Holden, Don Reba has to unban him.
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
