Play only CH NPP Map?

Hi, I'm new here. Excuse me for bad english, but I'm Italian

I played SoC three times but I lost saved games. I love CHNPP Map and I'd like to explore it without play all the game again. How can I play it?

And another little question: can you remember me the name of the mod that allows to remove mutants and quests from te game?

Thank you all

Look at the thread for the ZRP or Zone Reclamation Project.

You can teleport to any map you like and all sorts of other things.

Hi again. I installed the mod and started a new game, but Chernobyl NPP is not in the teleport list. I think I have to complete all the game before I can explore it. How can I explore it without play all the game again?

Have I tu use a 100% savegame? Where can I find it?

Thanks again

A while ago I saw savegames for all vanilla maps on some website. Don't remember the name or link though, you'll have to google it.

Another way would be to create a level changer somewhere in the start map from where you could travel directly to CHNPP. However this approach requires some scripting. If that's not a problem, look for example for Vintar's freeplay mod (it's somewhere in the mod downloads section), he's got a fairly easy to use script function letting you spawn your own LCs where you want to

I can't find the link for the mod anywhere!

Could I open original CHNPP map on X-RAY SDK Editor? Is it possibile?

Thanks

It sounds like you didn't read the documentation that came with the ZRP, ThEf0x. Just a guess: You used Esc J (the intra-level quick jump) menu, which listed only a couple of choices. You should have used Esc T ("The Zone is Open" ZRP Teleport) to access a complete chapter list.

You don't have to complete the game. Just start a new game, talk to Sid, and then access the chapter selection list via Esc T. If you want to resume play at Chernobyl in the storyline, you can select "Chernobyl NPP" from the list and click the Go button.

If you want to directly play/explore it without the timer, there are at least three ways to do that. A couple involve editing files, which I'll discuss in a moment. The first option is a bit more involved as of ZRP version 1.07 XR2:

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Do it with the standard ZRP 1.07: Jump through hoops.

Install the optional _custom_zrp.script script per the instructions, start the game, press Esc to return to the main menu, then press T to display the TZIO dialog, select the "Final Level or Free Play" chapter and click Go and accept the level change. When you get there, press Esc J L to teleport to the last battle area, then move into the area so that the final bad guys start to spawn. Immediately press Esc followed by J C to get to the top of the tower. You'll probably see the final cutscene, which you can cut short if you enable that feature.

When it is done, you can go through the teleport to get to the Cordon. Once there, press Esc T again to bring up the TZIO ZRP teleport menu. Now select "Chernobyl NPP" and check the "Teleport Only" checkbox and click the Go button. When you get there, make a named save; Esc S will make a quick named save for you. Play.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Alternative 2: Edit a text file.

Edit gamedata\scripts\_dev.script. Find this line (line 1062):

-- ,"aes2_monolit_teleport_ready_final" --test for m_osoznanie removal

make it look like this:

    ,"aes2_monolit_teleport_ready_final" --test for m_osoznanie removal

(Remove the leading hyphens. Yes, there's a leading comma. Don't remove that.)

Save the file. Start a new game, listen to Sid, then press Esc T E F. That opens the TZIO dialog, checks the "Just equip for level" checkbox and selects the Final/Free play chapter. When the screen updates stop, open your inventory, put on an outfit and select weapons and artifacts you want equipped. You are probably overburdened, so you'll need to drop stuff. When you are ready, you can press Esc T T N to just teleport to the NPP.

Again, make a named save when you get there. Play.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Alternative 3: Edit a different text file.

Edit gamedata\scripts\sr_timer.script. Find this line near the top:

local freeplay_state = 0

Make it say this:

local freeplay_state = 2

Save the file, start a new game, listen to Sid, then press Esc T N. Make a save when you get to the NPP, then play.

The last choice is easiest for your purposes, but you'll need to change it back if you ever want to play the normal game with the NPP blowout.
