This is not Nardonaya Soljanka (direct translation: People's soup). It's Stalker Soup, a derivative of NS. From the sounds of it, Technobacon has done a ton for load times and crashes. Still downloading it, but I remember the buginess of NS.

Been playing for six hours so far today, not a single crash.

I just got STALKERSOUP installed, since it finally appeared on ModDB (as a torrent for some reason, whatever). Amazing mod! I didn't even have to change weapon stats, they're actually good how they are for the most part. This should hold me over until Lost Alpha. Not one crash yet, I'm really surprised.

Looking to get back into CoP as I've only played it once, basically memorized CS, and am actually not too big of a fan of SoC. Though, now that there are better mods than Complete for SoC, I should replay it with STALKER soup or something. Not sure which is best for SoC since there are so many mod packs.

The thing I hated about vanilla STALKER games is that you eventually hit a point where you have excess money and ammo to do whatever you want. CoP and CS with 2000 bullets in a storage and 400 on me at all times made it less survival horror and more call of duty.

Priority at the moment is CoP, Misery or I work alone mod?

I like SMRTER Pripyat for CoP. SoC + STALKERSOUP is leagues ahead of all three vanilla games though when it comes to free roam, exploration, and lasting appeal. It also adds lots of new weapons, and includes all of CoP's locations so you may want to not bother with CoP. It's also really challenging, probably in the same league as Misery. Take a look at the global map of STALKERSOUP by the way.

ehh... anyone care to upload Stalker Soup to a non torrent location? I can't access torrents from my corporate network (350 Mb/s) and my bad home internet would take weeks. (1 Mb/s).

It would take two nights at 1Mbps, I just did it. It's very well-seeded.

Well, once you start to get one-shooted by everybody else you will start to tinker with weapon stats because having or not having armor is just the same (unless they have edited all weapon stats). Still, the biggest problem I see is that Stalkersoup is a plethora of mods just glued together...and the list of non-working features is sooooo big you get lost, and lets not talk about poor translations everywhere.

SOC is the best game of the three without any doubt, and COP is kinda meh :/ once you get to the dead city, as there is nothing to do there. Stalker soup has nothing to do with vanilla, as it changes many many many many things from the original game (even standard missions are modified), and you will need guides to know *** is going on half the time, because too many things are added and nobody ever bothered to include a simple changelog to explain wth is going on. Ah! In decent SOC mods you will be poor all the time. Right now I'm playing OGSE (a very nice mod all along) and you get from very rich to very poor in a second (had 300.000...bought a few artifacts and I'm poor again), which balances the needs to go lurking everywhere.

I ended Misery not too long ago and, what can I say? The mod is actually nice, although COP itself ain't that good. You see, the secondary quests in COP are very good compared to SOC...but the end in COP is not good at all, and you will expend 1/3 of your ingame time in the main bases present in every map. Misery makes the game more hardcore, so you will go even more to the bases (Due to free healing), not only because of healing, but because you need food all the time, can carry very few weight and will be trading all the time in order to get some money to spare. Mind you, at the first the little you get you will use it to buy food and repair gear, and you die VERY quickly here....keep it in mind.

In the end, IMO, the best game of the 3 is SOC. CS, to me, seems something without context...and the story behind COP is plain bad (and a copy of Priboy story).

Stalker soup sounds like a nightmare without proper documentation, and sounds like a nightmare to bugfix.
