Best Mod - Which one and why?

Privyet Stalkers!

In the spirit of the CS and COP boards I thought I'd start a post to take stock of the wonderful mods made to date and invite some of the greyer haired Stalkers to list some mods they enjoy and why? What makes it great - immersion, graphic details, range of weaponry, environment, features?

I'll nominate one I'm playing now:

Oblivion Lost Ultimate - D/led on moddb by Majorsoft - he's basically packed OL, with some others that marries awesome graphics with expanded features with traders and AI is good too!

Feel free to put yours forward.

I was thinking that it was probably good to organize a comp like they do on gamefaqs where they vote for the best games of all time - could we hold an annual one with mods for each division SoC, CS and CoP?

It would be ridiculous how easy the Lost Alpha would win!

Ah ah ah! The rules were you had to say why. What are the key areas it does well in? But unreleased mods kinda don't count yet

Proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Best Mod?

There isn't one, since everyone ( to a degree ) likes somewhat different additions to begin with. A lot of mods today do use similar things, like ZRP as a base, or have AMK and Oblivion Lost incorporated into them.

Most mods I end up downloading to play.. I usually always end up tweaking the item and weapon stats to how I like to play the game.

Of course, some people say the Complete mod is a good way to go, has good graphic additions, uses the ZRP and other additions.

Some like the 'Mega' mods; like Super Mod Pack, Stalker Soup and L.U.R.K. to name a few.

My favorites at the moment are Ket's STALKER: Twilight K.E.T. 2.ZERO ( http://www.moddb.com/mods/stalker-twilight-ket-2zero ), it gives a good difficulty boost without being too crazy, and besides being updated, it plays well and looks nice.

Also there's and a mega mod made by Majorsoft abbreviated U.L.T.I.M.A.T.E. ( It has several parts to download http://stalker.filefront.com/developer/Majorsoft;29753 ), it has the usual assortment of AMK and Oblivion Lost which add lots of new weapons and items, also a few custom things that are regarded as optional add-ons, like a Kar98K ( iron sights and scope ).

Lost Alpha is high on a lot of people's list, mine included.. though shouldn't be included in this thread, as it isn't released for all of us to play.

There's a plethora of Russian mods out there, some either fully, partially, or not translated at all (AMK is one I'm pretty sure ).

Best bet is to try the base mod, translation if there is one, then try merges of it with others to see what you like.

It's all up to you, so busy your bandwidth with mod downloads.

The community is great, too.

SoS

P.S. - Ha, I should of read your post in full . Any fondness for that BAR yet? Since you've been on Mod DB already, you probably know about rating, reviews, etc that comes on each mod page, if not.. you do now.

There's a million and one mods out there, of differing quality. Some are excellent, some are good in principle but leave a lot to be desired when you actually play them.

My personal recommendations are Paradise Lost (to tide you over until LA is released) and RMA. RMA is pretty excellent as it restores a lot of the old plot.

There's also stalkersoup if you want possibly the biggest mod out there. It's still very buggy and has a few questionable choices, but you could probably play that mod for the rest of your life and never see everything or get bored of it.

I've tried many SoC mod and I found Lost World Troops of Doom 3.3 with guns addon and translation the best. Not because of the graphics (it's marvelous though) but because the atmosphere. I think it has nearly the perfect feeling: there just a few stalkers, very interesting quests, brand new maps, brand new effect, beautiful weapons, and so on. You really have to try it.

For a vanilla overhaul I found the Zone of Alienation the best. It's graphics is amazing, the reload system is not perfect but makes the game unique.

For another total overhauls try Priboi Story with the overhaul and Secret Trails 2. They have really good quality.

Stalkersoup is a BETA mod which is fine, as long as you understand what that means

There's always Narodnaya Solyanka--crash prone but fun. boutch71's English version of DMX 1.34 works well--all quests work, except for some insignificant side jobs

you need a good PC to play DMX

Without disrupting the main quest, my favorite is a merge of the following mods:

Oblivion Lost 2.2
STALKERSOUP shaders
Complete 2009/K10 Vision/Absolute Structure textures (in addition to the new ones in OL)
Absolute Nature
Arsenal weapon pack.

This is quite a bit of work to put all of these together, but in the end it's worth it and it looks amazing.
