Skipping the first mission

Probably someone has done this, but anyway: instead of helping the CS members under attack from the boars (the very first "practice" mission) I ran off towards the southern farmstead. Got under cover just in time for the emission.

After that I could do a quest for the CS squad leader (capture point from mutants), but alas the squad never followed me there. When I asked the guide he couldn't lead me anywhere, not even back to the CS base.

When I went back to the location of the first (failed) mission, the CS stalker in the tower was still alive and shouting, but dropped dead as soon as I arrived. No new emission appeared, in effect making me stranded in the swamps. I guess one might try the twilight zone level changers, though...

By skipping that mission you've broken the game I'm afraid, you won't be able to exit the swamps as the level changers won't be activated.

You gotta play along to some degree

COOL
I tried the same but probably planned the escape too far (unrealistic) and didn't make to the cover.
I assumed then that this event takes you back to CS base no matter what.

Trying to sneak away from responsibilities ...

... oh well, should have guessed that won't end well

(for details, see screenshot thread p 32 "Some experiments with the new game" )
I admit that my short-term goals were a little different then - i wanted to gather a basic supply pack to travel further fast.

Robomook, the levelchanger won't be a problem

Will add another pic as soon as i find and upload it.

OK- here:
the fast-forward to Limansk

Lookst that following your scenario, you could enter the Limansk gates with even earlier missions active. I wonder if that would mean friendlier Renegades as well...

Took me a few tries before I succeeded, even when I took the shortest way.

Checked it on the PDA, it seems the ones in the Swamps are 100% hostile even before you join CS.

Edit: where's the hidden level changer in the Swamps, again?

The "teleport cluster" is right behind the South farm (quite a detour to get there from the twilight xone entry point ).
Caution is needed - the changers are not too clear, the area is filled with invisible walls, and among the TZ teleports there is one "real" levelchanger that takes you to the Cordon tunnel (and thus activates the main mission Cordon part IIRC).

very interesting idea. i've been playing around with it for most of the night. i made it to the fishing hamlet just in time to survive the emission. then i went to find the entry to the TZ and then on to the teleport cluster by the southern farmstead.

i made it to the bridge at limansk and did some exploring.

are the teleports near the bridge random or does it depend on which direction you go? i teleported to dark valley, garbage, cordon and the swamps. i also managed to cross the river and get into yantar and then the red forest.
-edit- ok I see how it works. thanks hhiker

i noticed that on the mini map the level changers in the swamps are visible and they work to enter the swamps but once you get back in they disappear.

i could do this for days, its like "free play", all the side quests seem to work too so there is lots to do.

I first tried climbing the tree growing across the fence, but while I did manage to land on the other side of the fence I still got stuck in a pocket between the fence and the invisible barrier.
Edit: that was at the fishing hamlet.
