post #31 of 58
Thread Starter 
I finally got the graphics sorted out Autumn Aurora + ENB + ReShade + NVidia HBAO - it looks FANTASTIC, like a 2014-2015 game - not kidding! Night-time is SO immersive, better than in any game (mind you - it won't look that great on IPS and TN monitors, but AMAZING on high-contrast displays):







However, this game seems impossible to me. I cannot complete the first 4 side-missions... I took care of the bandit camp, but the "Perfected Suit" task failed for some reason. Then I cannot find ANY monsters in the area for the "Clean are of mutants" task. Close to that area I am also supposed to meet someone, but nobody shows up @ day-time or @ night-time. Getting killed on Novice is extremely easy. AI is overly good. The only way to fight your way through the broken railroad bridge is to camp somewhere with scoped rifle, shoot someone, save, then likely die, reload game, try not to die, etc. Its Save & Load repetition when it comes down to fire-fights.

There is a difference between AI having unrealistically good aim and "good AI." I would assume Autumn Aurora 2 is the latter? Shame about the broken quests. For what it's worth Mod Pack 2013 has none.

I figured out why the quest was broken - the guy who gave to me died in a shooting between the starting Stalker Camp and local outpost soldiers. Then I saw that some quests have 1-day or 1-month time limit.

Autumn Aurora 2.1 was just RE-RELEASED with 9.29.2015 edition that has further upgraded / improved graphics! FANTAMAZING! EDIT: There is now NEW Autumn Aurora 2015 release - http://www.moddb.com/mods/autumn-aurora-compilation-mod/downloads/autumn-aurora-21-by-autumnal-wanderers with every better graphics!!!!

I am not sure Autumn Aurora changes gameplay much. I think it is mostly graphics, although there are some gameplay changes too. AI has good aim, not unrealistically accurate, but the damage amount is huge - 2-3 shots and I am down, although enemies don't need more than 2-3 shots themselves to die.

I see. I quite like that approach; balanced and not as unrealistic as something like unmodded Clear Sky in which everyone is a bullet sponge.

I just recently got Clear Sky, is there any recommended mods I should check out? I am only 4 hours into the vanilla game, so I don't mind restarting.

None of the Clear Sky mods are as amazing or necessary as SoC or CoP mods. Clear Sky Mod Pack 2012 is what I use.

I was just reading through these stalker posts and cant decide which mod I would like to go with. I am thinking just more of a graphics/texture upgrade instead of changing the story so which mod would be the best? Would misery be the best looking even if it changes a lot?

Misery is the best looking mod for CoP. It doesn't change the story around so definitely give it a whirl. Best mod for CoP although an update is on the horizon.
