Death Truck.

Ok in the very beginning of the game the first cut scene shows a truck driving through the zone (called a death truck) carrying all these dead/mutilated bodies (to wherever) and that dude finds you alive and takes you to cordon. Now, obviously the job of these "trucks" is to go around the zone and clear up the dead. So if the game starts like this, why do we never see anything of that nature again?

I think it would be a great idea if the death trucks were put into the game where there is a guy driving his truck around and clearing the dead from the zone. This will have a few impacts.

1. Make sense with the opening cut scene of the game.

2. It would make looting dead bodies harder or more exciting as you would only have the chance once you kill them or a short while after as these trucks are going around and as a result making what you find more valuable.

3. you could kill the guy packing the bodies and end up with a ton of bodies to loot.

I cant believe i have no found this on the forum yet. I think it is almost a MUST for the dev's to add this into the game. The first scene with the truck makes no sense without it.


thoughts?

Cool idea, but they would have to put vehicles back in the game first. Another addition to your idea could be to do missions as the Death Truck driver, the more bodies you collect, more rewards and rubles.

They dont need all the cars back in the game. I dont think that matters.
It would be a nice feature to have these death truck guys.
Maybe you can do a mission for them not as a driver but collecting bodies and the higher profile the dead stalker is that you bring, the more money you get or whatever.

I see so you mean a death truck say stopped at the side of the road somewhere with an NPC with special missions, not an a Death Truck that really moves around the maps. That would be good, a dynamic Death Truck that moves around the maps would be really cool.

that is what I mean, maybe 2 or 3 of them or 1 every week or something that moves around but they would stop to pick up bodies and that is where your chance lies to make contact.

lol yeah, what does it look like in the garbage area for you? To me it looks like the apocalypse so many bandit bodies outside the factory and from the bandit camp re-spawning over and over.

*****SPOILER*****




The purpose of a Death Truck is to bring Stalkers into the Zone for specific missions after they've been captured and brainwashed by the C-consciousness, so they'll only go out when a stalker has gotten to Radar or, even more rare, Chernobyl, which, I would think, would make the trucks very rare occurances.
Doesn't mean they couldn't happen every now and then, though.

I don't really like the idea of the deathtruck.

As a body harvester, it makes no sense to me that it would be in the zone. Why would a bunch of scavenging, treasure seekers have an organized service for collected bodies of the dead.

And then, as a C-consciousness tool, it still doesn't really make sense to me. I mean, if you want to secretly sneak a brainwashed stalker out to the edge of the zone, why would you take him in the only working truck in the entire zone?

You'll have to ask GSC about that one.
Th short answer is that vehicles used to be usable, so originally they weren't the "only usable truck."
