Modification of story from the developers of Secret Trails 2 - proposed release date Dec 2013. Looks interesting. Videos and details.

http://stalkermod.ru/MODYI-Teni-CHernobyilya/stalker-mod-fotograf-chast-pervaya.html

F.O.T.O.G.R.A.F with such a seemingly unusual name is a modification of the story from the creators of fashion secret trails 2 , developed on the platform of the game STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl. Players will be asked to go to the exclusion zone of the face of a war correspondent and a scout named Photographer. Vast areas with new locations, an interesting plot with parallel branches reaching quest, a new quest characters that will be encountered on the way to the protagonist of the story quests. Old story of the original version of the game is completely cut, which has a positive effect on the passing fashion, forcing the player to not be distracted by extraneous quests and tasks.

During his "reportage" A photographer will be necessary to carry out some investigation and find the strings in this tangle is not predictable plot twists, and that will lead him to the promised and the mysterious phenomenon of the Zone. Is it possible to perform the Photographer its primary mission will depend on you.


About the story:
At the end of the first decade of the 21st century energy crisis reached its climax. The world powers, the big oil and gas corporations have begun secret, a very active and relentless struggle for survival in the acute shortage of natural resources. On the one hand, huge amounts of money have started to invest in the development of technologies for the production of excess artificial energy. On the other hand, rapidly boosted the search for alternative natural energy sources and topliva.Po fragmentary and under an hour before the end of unverified data sources, in the exclusion zone, many years ago formed around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, there is something that generates enormous and hitherto unknown energy. It is something to be somewhere in the heart of the Zone - Chernobyl Sarcophagus. Someone is attributed to this source of extraterrestrial origin, someone was sure that this is the result of the accident two decades ago.

Camera for taking pictures of objects Zone

But be that as it may, the secret services of many countries, with the support of their governments, major research institutions, the terrorist organization and a powerful oligarchs began in secret from each other smuggle in a small enclosed area reconnaissance and single agent, in order to get first access to Sources of free and inexhaustible energy in nature. Began a hidden race for supremacy in the global energy market. And it was obvious that the one who first reaches the target will subsequently be infinitely rule the world.

One of these agents was hired our protagonist - an experienced war correspondent and scout nicknamed photographer, past fire and water in many hot spots. He was hired by the leadership of the United Peacekeeping Force, performing the function of monitoring the perimeter of the Exclusion Zone. The task of the agent was secretly penetrate deep into the zone and get the most accurate information, not only on special groups and lone agent, but also possible to find out what is really out of this mythical himself and such a welcome source of energy for all.

Peacekeepers supported by many community organizations and their supporters were convinced that the latent confrontation of superpowers, major corporations and terrorists in pursuit of power in the global energy market and as a result, boundless political, economic and military influence that could eventually lead to tragic consequences , and can be total collapse for the whole of humanity. Guided by these principles, they sought to avoid such an outcome ...

The main changes in fashion PHOTOGRAPHER:

Completely new story, an old story completely excised.
New quests with multiple parallel lines going quest intertwined with the main story line.
Implemented in parallel running quest line a research center aimed at finding and converting crystals, amulets, talismans and minerals absolutes.
A completely new system for issuing secondary quests, the number of which has about 60. Issue these quests in the game will be six characters, the job will be issued as you progress through the story.
The game includes 15 inhabited locations, all of which are involved in plot and logically linked.
Transitions between locations will be available to the player immediately after the story missions.
According to the new loading screens decorated and game menu.
There was a system of hallucinations, which will manifest itself in contact with some of the protagonist minerals or crystals.
The main character has been hammered thirst, and the actor is subject to a viral infection.
A lot of work on all of the sound processing part of the game, use your own voice acting, different sounds, voices the main character depending on the performance of various quests and around of events, as well as musical content.
The game has a lot of "easter eggs", so with careful and unhurried passage you will find a lot of interesting gameplay innovations.
Fashion Photographer principle involves moving the main character to the origins of the study areas. With this name different phenomena, anomalies and mutants will give himself HS. Therefore, in order to learn about what the above sites zone in his PDA, you must first carry out a study.
PDA will be composed of two sections, the first is a journal - it will record information collected from the various characters who will meet you as you progress through the story. The second section is a scrapbook photos - there will gather information about the Zone found by the main character.
To maximize graphics in the game was added to the texture pack.
The game includes such mutants as fiery Chimera and the Iron Claw, still quite dangerous opponents.
The game will be out as such artifacts is due to the fact that the actions taking place on the subject suggest the exclusion zone at the time of its birth and infancy. Therefore, in place of the artifacts in the game will be present so-called crystals, whose properties have to learn. In this regard, the game introduced a system for recipes and abnormal changes. To activate some anomalous zones will need a special tool.
Do not expect ready-made recipes, you will recognize them by comparing and choosing the ingredients to obtain the necessary useful properties. For obtaining prescriptions HS will receive serious awards. All information on successful modifications and conditions under which this transformation has been successful will be recorded in a special section of your PDA.

Sounds interesting, The trouble with this sort of mod for us is it sounds like a lot of it is in the storyline (the text) so it would need a proper translator to do it for it's full potential to reach us. If a mod relies on having a good story to tell were screwed.

Would be worth it if the mod is of the quality of Secret Trails and others. Would require the talents and patience of SS & GH .... they did a fantastic job with Secret Trails 2. Maybe others can help do bits and bring together. If it looks good I'm willing to have a go.

There are lots of mods out there but many IMHO are not worth playing ... let alone translating.

Update

The official site for this mod is http://fotograf.do.am/

I have registered at this site and asked (as a matter of courtesy) permission to post here.

Since this mod is being developed by those involved in Secret Trails 2 I referenced "Secret Trails 2 English Translation v3 by SS and GH" as an example of a text converted mod.

Some of the members/developers responded in English so hopefully if this mod takes off here there might be useful bilateral exchange. They feel that accurate translation will be important for this mod and that a lot will be lost by not having English voiceover. Don't know whether that means atmosphere or playability .... I suspect the former ... otherwise we are totally screwed.

Mod is in beta testing at the moment and has a proposed release 11 Dec 2013.

There are 15 locations and a raft of what look like totally new artifacts. The setting for FOTOGRAF is pre-everything else as far as I can make out.

Below are some images/videos posted at the site .... do not know whether these will actually be in or reflect the mod

During development it was decided not to stop and make the plot completely. Therefore, the modification will come out entirely.
Sorry for the bad English.

Yes, the voiceovers strongly influences a game atmosfernost.
But I didn't say that it will be impossible to pass on a plot without English voiceovers. Simply players should think more. Sense that in some places the voice of the Main Character and other characters gives helps on a plot.

Sounds really interesting. If you mean "voiceovers" is the mod driven by actual character voice or by text like in Secret Trails 2?

ST2 was awesome but kind of easy (weapons overpowered, even with original weps folder) and the long length was mostly due to the constant swinging back and forth across the map. Armour and artifacts were pretty useless since NPCs had aimbot.

I mean voice-overs. Though to read texts of dialogues and tasks it is necessary even more more attentively.

Usually tell another. The weapon weak - npc too strong)))
In F.O.T.O.G.R.A.F the balance is more approached to reality. That is and the actor and npc equally easily perish from a bullet in the head.
Characteristics of the weapon are approached to the real. In it big merit of the armorer of N6260. Also experience of one of the developers, having real fighting experience in Afghanistan was used.
On locations it is difficult to avoid movement. Therefore attempt to make these movement more interesting is made.
As it is difficult to avoid such phenomenon, as "chiterstvo" of players.
Therefore the balance of game is made so that it will be impossible to pass it without use of the main weapon of the person - a brain.

Is it possible to add sub-titles to the voice over files in FOTOGRAF?

I doubt. The voiceovers of the Main Character is caused at certain moments in several ways, depending on a situation. In modification about one hundred remarks... I am sometimes confused when it is necessary to correct something. I think a call of subtitlings even more will complicate a code. It is difficult to predict consequences.
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
