Yes, I noticed this, but in the inventory there looks to be a special slot for night vision goggles.

I'm nowhere near far enough into the game to expect to find nv yet, so am holding my breath.

Overall the DC looks very impressive so far.

Sorry to say but I'm starting to agree - which is a shame as initial impressions are fairly good - excepting geometry issues, with white lines flying through the scenery (never seen in 1.3x)

As for 'I should wait for dark and sneak into the Military Checkpoint in a MJ with no NV and maybe a Fort-16...' yeah agreed = stupid!!!

I'm not sure what's gone wrong, but I wonder if the 1.3 leak has meant that they have not given 1.4 to enough people to properly test.

Overall it's considerably more buggy than 1.3 - which had it's own issues - but in 1.4 I currently can't even get to the bar area, due to some nasty physics bug.
hi, i used the teleport function to go get the suit, rifle and artifact, then t/port back to cordon. worked fine
---END QUOTATION---



I'm sure it worked 'fine' for you.
I prefer to see if a game is playable without resorting to such subterfuge.
i.e, playable as is.

Two pieces of good news.

Night-Vision goggles are on sale in the Bar! ...13,000+ Ru though...

1.4002 has solved the crash when entering the Bar area from Garbage.

Great stuff!!!

Outstanding news! 13000Ru is not so bad when you see that a Downloads module is 11000Ru.

(Hopefully - they work...)

The 'Chinese' nv works.

Just very badly.

But then, it's 'cheap'.

I can feel a headache coming on already. Maybe the EHT will earth through my neck later?

Had to laugh. The Chinese nv is pretty much useless, really not much better than nothing at all, and definitely not worth the money!

One small moan, the location of Strelock's key in underground Agroprom is fantastically hard to find without resorting to Google. Even knowing where it was I still struggled to get it.

I don't mind things being hard, but when they are too hard there's no satisfaction for me, and will merely incline me to use Google for solving LADC item hunts again.

It's only a very small moan, as overall 1.4002 is looking good.

You can get those from Sid early on - this is a screenshot from after I saved Fox, but before I stole the documents from the military base and before I left Cordon

the thing is, if you scratch Sid's back, he'll scratch yours... don't rush through The Zone, stay a while and do some missions and scout the area(s) you enter - there much more to this game than meets the eye

Good advice!

I was finding the game very dark, adjusting r2_tonemap_lowlum x.x and r2_toneamp_middlegray x.x (one up the other down) has helped a lot, and made the NV actually useful.

Another nice double-win!
