I don't think STALKER needs many new or exotic guns - personally, I'd rather JUST locally available/soviet block weapons, but with vastly more variations among them.|
I agree that a "gunsmith" and accompanying quests would be good. He would modify weapons where the player hands over a gun and specifies whether to increase the damage, accuracy, ammo cap, ammo type, weight etc. You would name it something unique, and it would be saved to the uniqueitems file. Eventually, you might see other stalkers carrying the same weapon upgraded like yours (but nowhere like the real deal of course!), as your rep grows.
Stalker 1: "Hey man, that's a cool gun!"
Stalker 2: "Yeah, it's a copy of the gun I saw that dude Marked One with and I just had to have one like it. So I went over to the Gunsmith, and..."
Marked One:"WTF are u noobs talking about! That is so nothing like my gun. This thing can pwn a squadron of choppers from 6k's away."
Stalker 1 & 2: *In awe*
Maybe even loading your own inventory gif/bmp/jpg for the custom weapon could be possible. He'd be in the very most out-of-the-way place, and would only accept the most difficult quests as payment.
