A Different Vehicle Idea.

After reading through the forums a bunch, and eagerly awaiting the upcoming patch, I was able to think up a slightly different idea for re-implementing vehicles into S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

I have done a few forum searches, (And even a Google search just to make sure.) and mostly what I found on vehicle suggestions was just "Put them back in!"

I got the idea from the "Death Truck" in the intro movie and I started thinking, most of the Stalker fan base wants vehicles back in the game, but why should the "Marked One" be the only one allowed to use them?

So instead of having a bunch of vehicles for the player to drive, lets assume that all the operational vehicles have already been taken and are being used by the AI. Think about it. . . if a vehicle is working, why would it still be sitting there?

For example, I'm pretty sure the "Death Truck" in the intro movie wasn't the only one, and its probably going to get replaced pretty quickly, so every once in a while on certain roads we should see a truck go in and out of the zone on certain days and times.

Some vehicles could be tied to some more advanced quests, such as getting in the back of a truck with some other Stalkers while someone else drives you to a destination for your mission.

Then the military and the factions could be using vehicles to transport troops and supplies.

Maybe some random supply truck would stop at some of the villages and towns, dropping off weapons and equipment. (All that ammo and Red Bull have to be getting there somehow. . .)

And the idea I like the most, Taxi's. Every once in a while on certain roads you might see some random car coming down to road, and if your close enough for the driver to see you he might stop and ask if you want a ride for a price. Then you can just click on a location on your map and he can take you as close as he can, either it be a camp or just at the side of the road.

Basically, I want vehicles back in Stalker really badly, but I also know that it doesn't make any sense that the player would have driving access to any of them unless it was hidden really well. (Or the player just stole it at the right time.)

Feel free to expand upon or comment on my idea, I want to know what you guys think.

wow, that was...intelligent!

I'm serious, it sounds pretty rough and I'm personally not for the idea of vehicles, but this one sounds decent. Give them man a bottle of irradiated wine!

It does make a lot of sense to do it that way, I mean why DOES everything just sit there waiting for the marked one instead of someone else? not just vehicles but artifacts and weapons and all that, when the stalkers in garbage are duking it out with bandits, how would you like to race them to loot corpses or pick up weapons off the floor, they need it too!

The marked one is just another stalker, so why is he always waaay better equipped to deal with the zone than everyone else? im talking medkits and ammo, everything, I don't care how special he is, he isnt the only stalker going out and about trying to get artifacts or doing whatever else.

Ive noticed the stalkers are pretty weak in comparison to a lot of other groups, which is wierd considering the fact that they are loners, and if they are loners and still alive they must know what they are doing, so why can't they hold thier own better?

Anyways enough rambling, the vehicle idea is excellent, with the possible exception of the taxi, maybe you could just hitch a ride with a supply vehicle??

I'm playing the game over again with Faiaks Mod (the big 100mb one) and you can buy gas cans (to use to set down then blow em up) why not do the vehicle mod with whatever mod uses the gas cans so you can buy gas as well? makes sense, vehicles dont run on air.

Yea, from what I had read that's what it was supposed to be like.

As for the rest, sounds interesting.

Well I was mostly going on the idea that if someone was able to get a hold of a working vehicle in the zone, at least someone would want to make some cash with it, and what better way to make cash on your half-broken down pile of rolling metal than giving people rides for a fee.

But stowing away in a supply truck could also be another option, and you have to be careful getting in or you'll get caught.

Technically, there are vehicles, but not before Chernobyl NPP..working ones, anyway.
