Tree Climbing

It would be awesome if it can be done. I hope it can. Not having it in a big area with hundreds/thousands of big trees where you need to survive would be a mistake. Being able to snipe/sleep in them would be very cool.

Imagine going up to sleep in one and waking up to find 20 blind dogs waiting for you at the ground under you.

Or climbing up to snipe things and completely not notice those giant rats climbing up to get you.

If its not in the game is it something that modders could put in pretty easily?

Probably Yes.

Most of the time in games there's a specific entity or invisible texture which allows the player to "climb" a surface. For HalfLife, it was called a func_ladder, which was made from a rectangle smeared with a invisible texture. This rectangle basically told the game that when the player reached these coordinates (x,y,z) that the player was to be put into a "ladder-climbing" mode, where forward/backward would be turned into a up/down motion. Same thing with HL2 and Doom 3...
Probably the same with Stalker.

Unless, of course, Stalker's "ladders" are actual math equations to see it climbing a surface is possible (IE: detecting distances between like-angled surfaces; math calculations for the distance between rungs in a ladder) ... But i doubt that. So, unless Stalkers' map-makers are insanely extensive, and func_ladder every conceivably "climbable" surface, you'll be able to climb your trees. So, for climbing every and any tree in the zone...

Not likely.
