S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Vanilla Plus

Page: http://www.moddb.com/mods/vanilla

Description:
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Vanilla+ aims to enhance the STALKER experience to lift it up to a full fledged AAA title launched in 2014, without modifying anything story-related or changing core game-mechanics. More info will follow soon.

Welcome to the discussion thread! I hope to collect some good ideas here to implant into the mod. Most people already seen what it's about. A SC2009 without all the changes to the game that make it easier.

Well, I was just thinking about the Complete-mod and one obvious thing that comes up immediately (for me at least) is that the weather needs to be varied. It would be very cool, if one day was very rainy, another windy and another more varied, one very sunny etc. etc.

Also LoNer1, if you don't mind, do you know a good link (youtube, article etc.) which showcases the difference between Vanilla SoC and the SoC Complete-mod? I'm mostly talking about the differences in mood. It has been too long for me, since I have played the original game and back then I had to play it on "Static Lighting".

Hmmm, that's a good one. Considering I also haven't played SC2009 in ... 5 years, I would say, fire up the game, play a bit, then watch this video and see how they compare

Well I haven't played "Vanilla" in a long time, not "Complete". Anyway, I watched the first few videos of a "Vanilla"-playthrough on youtube.

Some of the obvious stuff is that the textures are less detailed and often don't look very impressive, but that's not something I care too much about. Some of the skyboxes are different. Less "flashy" I would say. I guess the weather of Complete uses a bit too much bloom. Also, as opposed to Complete, it looks like there is usually some kind of mist about and visibility is more often impaired. But I'm not sure, if that really is mist or just a way to reduce the game's hardware demands. All in all I think Vanilla's skyboxes look just as good most of the time. The rain and most of the anomalies look a little different, but imho it often comes down to taste. More a question of style than quality, really.

The only big thing graphics-wise (aside from the textures) are the sunsets, day-night-transition and the nights themselves. In my opinion they look vastly superior in Complete and especially the latter two look much more believable than anything I have ever seen in any other game. The mornings are not nearly as impressive in comparison.

Soundwise there are a few more guitar- and harmony-songs for the campfires and changes to gun-sounds. Not sure about general ambience. I believe there were some things mentioned in the changelog. If you are interested, just look it up on moddb.

Unfortunately I cannot really determine how varied the weather is, without putting in more time, but I will pay attention in my current "Complete"-playthrough. If you are interested, I will update my "diary" over in the "Playing the game"-section shortly.

A little off-topic maybe, but I hope it helps.

Will you guys implement effects from CoP and CS ? Or is that too much work?

And suits and weapons from CS and COP?

Nice first post. Well, since you asked!

Some news:

A blog update:
http://www.moddb.com/mods/vanilla/news/blog-update1

Also, I've added multiple options when installing the mod. Mainly textures and level files. You can pick from the following:

AA2 level files (green variant);
Some screens:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/vanilla/images/lurk-style-grass-vegetation-addon#imagebox
http://www.moddb.com/mods/vanilla/images/lurk-style-grass-vegetation-addon1#imagebox
http://www.moddb.com/mods/vanilla/images/lurk-style-grass-vegetation-addon2#imagebox

This can be configured with the standard grass, lurk styled grass or PRZ2 styled grass.

There's also different weather options available. Pure vanilla, AF3 or SWTC:

Vanilla:

Sorry if I didn't update it straight away. I spend most time searching for the thread deep down the 5th page and it was 3:10 in the morning when I bumped it. Wanted to post this update after I slept, that's why
