All the things I'm complaining about in the Agroprom, Garbage and
Dark Valley ( Faction Wars ) were never the things I had all the big
problems with. Sure I would get a crash a few times but nothing I
couldn't keep going with. It was the Army Warehouses & Limansk
Levels that brought my Game to a screaming stop. By that time
all the Faction Wars to the south were over with & really inactive.
I should clarify that I wasn't trying to troll Tejas Stalker (or anyone else in the thread) when I wrote "Newbie Faction", rather I was thinking of those that more or less refuse to play CS because it's "too buggy".
I figured you were talking about the new players to CoP that
never gave CS a try because of it's reputation. Even with it's
bugginess it's still playable and a whole lot of fun. One of the
best moments I ever had in any Stalker Game was playing CS: http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/8409/lefty.jpg
---QUOTATION--- Clear Sky PATCH 1.5.10 Review
It was the Army Warehouses & Limansk
Levels that brought my Game to a screaming stop. ---END QUOTATION---
As far as my experience goes, it's not the levels themselves but rather the extended time spent in game that will eventually be too much for the game to handle. Towards the end of October, no matter what the map (or the patch), i've started experiencing g.script errors.
(Just so you know that part is still out there waiting )
Now I took a task from Freedom to attack Bandits in Garbage (the small swamp next to Flea Market). Just like Tejas Stalker wrote, the Freedomer's went up close to the Bandits, asked for my attack signal but started shooting anyway. None of the bullets hurt the Bandits, who ignored the Freedomers, but once I gave the attack signal bullets began doing damage and the Bandits immediately started shooting back.
Isn't that ridiculous? The battles like that should be just like the Marshes.
Clear Sky is capable of shooting the Renegades whether you help or not.
Almost every attack in Garbage would fail if I didn't help participate in it.
