I tried "The Collector" mode in the StalkerSoup but I'm quite dissapointed. I can't understand half of the dialog since the english is HORRIBLE. The other thing is that I get everything handed to me right from the beginning, I don't want the best weapon in the game right away. I want to fight for it! But the military guys... Sigh. The first attack was nice, that I was able to handle. But the constant fight between the military camp and the stalker camp, really? I had ONE shot at a soldier and I got two helicopters doing a bombing run over me. How is that stalker camp still up and running? And the last thing that bothers me is the amount of random stuff. I like simplicity, not ten thumbsticks full of mp3's. Then the other devices, iPhone4 copy? Really?? I don't have any idea what to do with those devices. I think they tried really hard to add as much as possible to the game and they've somewhat succeeded. The game is just a mess with StalkerSoup installed. Sorry if this upsets you but it's just my opinion. Maybe I will try the OGSE.

That's exactly why I posted this guide:

Guide by A185 for Narodnaya Solyanka (DMX & Stalkersoup plot source), with Pseudostomp/Snork Tips, from re-aktor.ru. Updated February 19th 2012, released Oct 7th 2010, 38 pages. I've translated what Google missed, added a few tips, some "SPOILERS" hidden in white on white text, and uploaded a 3 Mb searchable PDF, with pictures (thumbs & full screen links). Link: (below)

Comes in real handy!

Did you even read what The Collector mode is ? Your suppose to have good gear with you, it's a sort of a freeplay mode after you finish the main storyline. Except the makers provided it for those who don't want to play through entire game or want a fresh take on the STALKER experience. Anyways, why did you play "The Collector" first ? just play the regular storyline first so you can understand what everything is first. STALKERSOUP is not "love at first sight", you have to tame the beast to understand it. I really think your giving up on it to quick, but hey different strokes for different folks.

How is the player suppose to appreciate what the mods add, if they never experienced vanilla ? Dunno just seems silly to me.

Shadow of Chernobyl + ZRP (Zone Reclamation Project) is the way to go for first run through, fixes broken quests and so forth.

No, especially not for first playthrough.

Fixed. I can't wait for it either. If S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 ever comes out (which I'm doubtful about), I doubt it will be as good as Lost Alpha ends up being.

I did give the guide a look. It was HUGE tongue.gif Sorry for the rage, first I tried marked one mode and quit once I took the drug, then I tried The Collector. I'm sure it would've gotten better if I gave it more time. On the other hand I'm running OGSE now and it seems great! Much easier to install and it's much more coherent. I think I'll be coming back to StalkerSoup some day when it gets more finished.

The problem I have now is that I entered a vehicle in the stalker camp and I don't have any idea how to get out of it!

Edit: Got it..

For STALKER 2, my wishlist would include:

- Larger, new areas to explore
- New game engine or at least dramatically improved for Visuals, Stability, and still retain great Modability
- New storyline (of course)

Not much else to improve upon. Although Lost Alpha seems to be including those 2 wishes for the most part, at least it should be a massive map including all the areas we have seen so far across all the games. As for the stability and visuals, we shall see.

You backed off from the most hardcore and difficult experience you can experience in a stalker game. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

COME BACK AND FACE THE CHALLENGE! YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE! devil.gif

Seriously though give the mod another try , especially with the current 1.0.9.5 where you can skip that sequence.Other that i have a question for all of you who plays stalker soup , any idea what the "Decoder Module" is for?

I think I'm true to Stalker series. I've played them all through a few times. I think rushing isn't part of being a stalker. Sneaking and getting kills from distance is the way for me. Also the game wouldn't fit on my SSD frown.gif

Agreed. Sneaking around feels much more true to the game.

Agreed. I'd actually like to see stealth more utilized in it. Enemies seem to have radar and they're dead accurate in pitch black conditions without nightvision. Maybe applying something like what Deus Ex does, though not to that extreme.
