STALKER

It's been a long while since I tried to play STALKER. Wanted to get your opinions on which mods to install so the game doesn't blow up (and for improvements). Been finding a lot of dead links here and there. I vaguely remember some gunslinger mod, bug patches, and skybox mods. How do STALKER: SoC players mod their games out in 2023?

Any help is appreciated.

    ZRP for SoC like the other anon mentioned, and Sky Reclamation Project for Clear Sky.
    https://www.moddb.com/mods/srp

    Call of Pripyat is fine vanilla, but hell, COP is actually fucking ugly, I would actually recommend Absolute Nature and Atmosfear, might as well get Original Weapon Renewal, it only alters appearance of weapons.
    I don't recommend OWR for SOC, because of junky the new weapon models look with SOC's weapon handling.

        How do you change FoV in Stalker?

        Also for Call of Pripyat, you can get OpenXRay.
        It's improved version of the engine, more stable, better performance, more console commands, including fov command
        https://github.com/OpenXRay/xray-16

        For Shadow of Chernobyl there's unofficial patch 1.0008 that also includes fov command
        https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/503-stalker-shadow-of-chernobyl-unofficial-patch-10008/

        For Clear Sky, you'll have to use fov switcher. It also supports SOC and COP, but they have better alternatives
        https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/36-stalker-clear-sky-fov-switcher/

        Also for SOC and CS, patch the exec with this
        https://ntcore.com/?page_id=371
        tldr, these are 32 bit apps, so they can only use 2GB of RAM by default, once they pass 2GB they crash, this allows them to use more than 2GB

      For first time run and literal vanilla 2.0, only Zone Reclamation Project + any visual enhancements you desire (ie. Absolute Nature, Shaders Max, FOV Switcher...).

      For the 2nd run, vanilla + restored content + hefty extra challenge, there's still no beating the AMK 1.4.1.

      Download the FOV Switcher.
      It's included in the (original) Starter Packs I made over a decade ago. The one on Moddb is an imposter clusterfuck.

            crouching down and using single shot is honestly terrible advice, at least for SoC. the innacuracy is so bad that it becomes counter productive and makes the game kinda RNG hell.
            I personally find it far more effective to, while trying to close the distance with enemies, do a burst at the head rather than attempt single shots

              Nope. It's the only way to get the job done.

                >using a fucking VSS
                who fucking cares? thats a lategame gun with extreme accuracy and damage, far above 90% the guns in the game. At that point, the game has no difficulty to combat, because it mostly entirely revolves around having shitty accuracy.

                With any normal generic rifle and for the vast majority of your playthrough, 4-6 bullets at the head will be miles more consistent than 1 at a time

                Dunno man, sounds like some loud cope by a filtered plebeian.

                Single shots and crouch wins the game.

      It's incredibly hard to discuss this series when most of the threads about it are being used for 4chan shit these days

    Just install GAMMA. it's anomaly with 300+ mods that enhance it. Really fucking good mod pack, ignore the contrarian fucks and vanilla purists gatekeepers, it's free and it's good.
