It's Good to be Back

The Zone...

It's probably been about 3-4 years since I was last there and I really wanted to return to her harsh lands. So what better way to do it than attempt my first Master playththrough of CS? (the only mod i'm using is SRP 1.1.1 with various optional modules from that)

I've just finished wrapping up my business in the Swamps helping out Lebedev's boys with the renegades. Things were shaky at first but I eventually slipped back into my rhythm and was able to achieve the goal I always set myself ever since finding out about it, that is to have:

- Fully Upgraded MP5
- Fully Upgraded CS-1
- Fully Upgraded CS-3
- Veles Detector
- Gravi Artifact

Pics for proof

CS-3:

MP5:

Stats:

Making money for this venture wasn't easy, I conducted what I simply called the loop so many times. I would start at the village ruins, head NE to the encampment near where you find the vintar and eliminate the renegades who were always camped there. I would then move down to the Machine Yard and take the task to recapture the Encampment near the truck. From there I would elminate the renegades at their base and sell all the loot. In between this I would conduct the random tasks of delivering certain supplies to the squad leaders (I lost track of how many 9x18mm rounds i gave away )

This was a typical site in my zone:

I was also able to conduct 3 rounds of artifact hunting from the various anomalies (besides the one next to the machine yard due to the original artifact being stuck in the ground) due to the 4 hour respawn timer and didn't sell any of them.

Anyway, like the title says it's just good to be back and I can't wait to continue to post my various adventures with you guys again

PS: just some things I found interesting or never noticed before.

Yep. Nothing better than returning to the Zone. Every new Game you
discover new things or see things in a different light to try a different
approach or tactic. The CS-1 suit is one of the best in the entire Game.

The rocks next to the dead bodies on the right are my favored place to climb
up on and use as cover to ambush the Renegades coming to me on the trail:

Your pictures are really tiny. Hard to read print. Can you make them larger?

One Week

So after one week in the zone and 2 days in The Cordon the place is definitely starting to look like a warzone.

Stats & Current Loadout

The Far Outpost seems to always be changing hands between Loners and Bandits. I even happened to pay a visit just as a skirmish was taking place.

Then there is the sawmill (?) located near the broken bridge which is a veritable mutant graveyard.

Not even the Military are safe, though this may have more to do with me than anything else

and lastly just some random screens I took that I quite like.

Only Loner I've seen using anything above an MP5:

Turns out it was a quest item I turned in:

So I recently entered the Garbage and got to work finding Fang's trail. When my business with that was sorted I moved on to getting the bandits friendly even though I'd managed to aggro most of the level changer guards making life a little interesting when wanting to move to another area.

I didn't spend too long in the Garbage however as compared to the Swamp or Cordon everything just seemed rather static. So now i'm getting ready to head to the Dark Valley in order to help out my buddies in Freedom.

Well that's rather disappointing,

Tried to add a few textures and so forth after getting to Agroprom, decided they caused my game to stutter too much and tried to uninstall them but game wouldn't get past 'Client: Synchronising'. Tried using old gamedata backup same problem.

So long story short i'm going to have to take a break from CS until I feel ready to start from Dark Valley again

Edit: on the plus side I can finally give CoC a go
