10 Gameplay questions.

I have a few questions on some of the implementations on gameplay, maybe someone may be able to give some information that they may of seen. ok here are my questions:

1. Vodka cure radiation right? but does it affect you visiblitity, movement, accuracy etc?

2. I heard that there will be no fuel in the final version, is this true because it is a little silly that there is no fuel limitations?

3. Anomolies take effect on other stalkers, will it be possible to save them, or do u have to watch them as they are burnt, ripped apart, disintegrated, etc? and when caught in one yourself, is it possible to escape?

4. Is it possible to fly the helicopter or not?

5. i heard in an interview about beasts getting dead animals and stuff and dragging them into cover, ripping the body's flesh off, i also heard in these forums that, that is not possible, is this true?

6. the game is 30Km sqr is this 5kmx6km =30km or is it 30kmx30km=900km play area? (lol stupid question)

7.how many guns, vehicles, etc will be in the game?

8. unfortunately there has been a delay, wat is the reason behind this delay? and is there going to be an approx. release date?

9. I have read in many previews about the weather system and real time day/night cycles, will clouds move etc, like they said or has it been changed?

10. While sleeping in STALKER, what happens? will it be just like morrowind, where u click how long u want to sleep?

1. Vodka wil cure some radiation poison but i dont know if it wil get you drunk, but that wouled only make sense and sure be fun.

3. The other stalkers wil be afffected buy anomolies, i dont know if you couled save them but you can surely save your self if you walk into one, but i images it wouled be hard.

2. No fuel wil be in the game

4. You cant fly the helicopter

5. Im sure dead animals will get eaten by others

7. Al this information can be found here
http://stalker.myexp.de/en/index.php

8. The delay is probly becouse the game has to be finished with out any bugs, probly the release date is 2005 May

9. I dont think just things like weather and day/night cycles wil be ever changed

10. Im not sure about sleep but it wouled be cool if it were like in morrowind, and even if its not that does not realy matter becouse the whole game isnt about sleeping.

I helped you as much as i can.

8. The release date is no longer May. It is "when it's done."

9. No, the clouds do not move.

Take a look in the Q&A thread in the general section. All of those questions have been answered there before.

1. well vodka will take off some radition you got from the zone.you will get drunk if you drink too much , that will give negative effects on = aiming , and driveing abilities.

2. no there will be no fuel. well its a little unrealstic but hey , who wanna be stuck in middle of the zone , when its dark and the mutants beasts starts to appear ,.

3.will there is a chance that the developers put in the ability to save other stalkers , so they later would save you or help you killing someone or something. im 100% you will be abile to save yourself. ¨

4. i dont think so.

5 well yes thats true , bllood thersty mutants will attack anything . but will also run if defeated.

6. im not really sure about this question . but i think that what they meant about 30km is right , its a big area and will be a fair amount for an explorer.

7 there are currently 5 vehicles and 12 weapons in the showcase, but there will be more i can assure you .

8. they properly delayed because they wanna polish it more both in bugs and features matters , they said that the reason of the delöation was because of , them wanting to reach very high standards , sounds pretty good .

9. no i dont think so , the weather is an important feature in this game so i dont think they even will .

10.ive not heard about the sleeping system just yet. we will have to await a little.

I think it is safe to assume that this is a plot device.

I would wanna be stuck in the middle of the zone, when its dark and mutant beasts start to appear... The 'no fuel needed for cars' idea will significantly detract from game experience. I understand that this will make things easier, but there are people out there that don't want THAT easy.

Maybe add a difficulty level that would enable the use of fuel?

Well the people, who want fuel to be implimented into teh game are really stupid in the way that chernobyl doesnt have fuel stations and stuff, its just not logical, and when run out of fuel, you are screwed, you have to search all over the pplace to find fuel, and when you do, you have to get back to your car alive, just to go a few more km, b4 running out again, although i also dont like the fact taht your car has unlimited fuel becuz you could just drive all around teh landscape running into monsters and crap, like a stupid rampage in GTA3.

I don't find myself to be as 'stupid' as you think me to be. Fuel doesn't have to originate from the zone, instead it can be bought (the dealer) or scavenged (from military bases). I find it thoroughly more enjoyable to always be on the edge like this. Fuel implementation will further underline the survivalism aspect present in the game.

Indeed, it will look like a stupid rampage in GTA3 to run all over the place. GSC implement fuel!
