Stalker shoc 's best mods nowadays

Hello gentlemen, you can post here your feeling about your last good experience on english translated mods. This is for all the newcomers, they will have a better idea of nowadays "must play" mods. You could describe and eventually post link to pictures or download. Special greetings to all stalker modders ( russian, english, french and surely others) , translaters and "discoverer" too , thanks a lot to develop this incredible game!

From what I have played:
Priboy Story Overhauled - add new story line with interesting way to complete tasks. If you like "searching for something", Priboy has it also.
Narodnaya Soljanka - played older versions of it multiple times. Adds a ton of new content, but it is heavier for computer.

Both can be found in Mod Disscussion section.

the first mod i ve played with pleasure few years ago, was oblivion lost. it adds many cut features as mutants, weapons or artifacts recipes. The storyline was intact if i remember well but it has done a pretty good feeling in me. I forgot stalker for few years... to finally come back on it 8 months ago. When i looked on the web i discovered a entire world of amazing mods or projects, especially in russia . i found too devoted people to this great game as D.Everett or Iloveshoc and many others...
Thanks to them I ve had the opportunity to play such good mods as Secret trails 2, Lost world troops of doom, priboi story, amk+nlc, old good stalker evolution, ... and recently Rma ( old storyline restoration) + mg volkolak awesome addon

Maybe you should describe what kind of mods you're looking for, as there a so many with very different intention, e.g.

1. total conversions (with new storyline, new levels, mutants, weapons, tasks...)

2. "just improving the vanilla game without changing it too much"-mods like the various rebalancing, fixing, and graphics-/AI-/config-improving mods

3. mini-mods that just add or change some specific feature, like sound, textures, shaders, AI, weapons, mutants, vehicles, weathers...

4. compilations of mini-mods - there are hundreds...

Of course this is not a complete list but should point out that there exist so much different kinds of mods nowadays that you can't just name two or three "must" mods


EDIT:
Shameless self-advertisement: Don't miss my shaders mod (see my sig). It's most probably the most current and most complete shader mod for SoC ever

you re absolutely right meltac
- oblivion lost improve massively the vanilla game adding cut mutants, weapons, artifacts recipe, sleeping ability with random dreams, ...
- Secret trails 2 is an amazing total conversion made by some russian master modders. the storyline is about strelok' s brother search out and adds so many crazy things such as new factions, locations, monsters, artifacts ( +recipes) , many weapons, ... the mod has several ends depending to your choices. it s the best i ve ever played!
- Lost world troops of dooms is a total conversion which give a pure feeling of freedom. there is a lot of new locations, new factions, vehicles, ... you re totally free to explore the zone as you want, and find interesting quest without map marker...
- Priboi story is one of the first total conversion i think. it s a big investigation about the zone. you must find some military documents well hidden in the zone. to find them it s necessary to question characters and deduce where to seek...
- amk is a kind of classical example, it improves awesomely the vanilla game with new characters, quests, weapons, better IA and many new ingame mechanics. it s a "must try" for any new stalker fan, i think
- Old good stalker evolution ( Ogse) is the best vanilla improvement i ve ever seen . it adds many many things to improve the atmosphere of the game. psi surge, blow out, weapons, sleep bag, need to drink after a lot of drugs use, cut mutants, new crazy spawn, ...
- Rma addon ( old storyline restoration) is a real story addon which develop the "lost" role play aspect of the vanilla. there are few new locations, new quests, weapons, ... it s a true new way to re discover the wellknown plot

These are some (at least some, but way not all) of the famous bigger mods for SoC, and all those are either partial or full conversions.

But, don't forget all those glorious smaller add-ons and mini mods which are often integrated parts of the big mods and make the latter what they are!

once more, you re right meltac but i don t know precisely those mini mods... this is often minimods which add new (or old cut ) gameplay mechanics such as sleeping, dreaming, ammo belt or arena extansion for example.

for those who doesn t know yet, this is the link to D. Everett moddb' s page, he has always many links added regularly to quality mods

Recently i tried the offlife mod, it s a pure freeplay mod without storyline. it allows you to choose absolutely every faction with specific starting location and equipment... it includes monoliths or mercs and many others! there is quests and a lot of unexpected hostile encounters. AI looks good too. For those who like freeplay it s surely a good choice and can be found in dl section.

rma 1.1.5 mg volkolak 1.3.5 addon

I really love this one which makes rma much more alife and hazardous too! spawns are clever and it adds few welcome new weapons... the sleeping area system seems a bit more realistic for me in this "hostile" zone . that s a new link as the last is broken.

http://narod.ru/disk/26992331001/Dopolnenie_dlya_RMA_v135.7z.html

install notes : just put on top of rma 1.1.5 + eng translation ( few items descriptions are missing )

- Priboi Story for total conversion

- Oblivion Lost + 3rd party shaders (I prefer STALKERSOUP's) + Absolute Nature + extra textures + extra weapons from Arsenal mod = one of the best SoC experiences

- Old Good Stalker Evolution - another great mod, comparable to Oblivion Lost but more advanced.

I'm going to work on combining Oblivion Lost and OGSE.

About big mods:

I think that OGSE and Priboi Story Overhaul is two bests mods for SoC now.

Secret Trails 2 is another very good mod. But it's a "100% script" mod.
So, it didn't include respawn. The single bad point for this one.

The original Priboi Story is old now, like AMK 1.4.1 or Redux 1.2.

The NS DMX is too much for me. Too many weapons, too many anomalies, too many npc... It isn't the Zone (It's my point of view). It's the "super mega giga mod pack" .

I loved atmosphere in Lost World Condemned.
Lost World Requital was bugged and didn't include respawn.
I hope that Lost Worl Troop of Dooms is better and correct this point. I didn't test it.
I don't like come back in a empty level.

I forget the best one if you would like to play in vanilla game: the ZRP mod of course!

About good specific mod:
Weathers : SWO or WTC
Shaders: Dynamic Shader by Meltac
Textures pack: Autumn Aurora
Particles : PP2

Finally, forget the Complete series and OL2010, i didn't like them, to easy and they are made for very performant computer.

Scar or RMA mod like to be good too, but i didn't have time to test them.
